A bowl of this Pan Mee is only RM3.80 and you can have it dry with black sauce or with soup. It comes with fish paste, fried soya bean skin and loads of celery leaves or green spinach. L like the texture of the Pan Mee, tender, soft, tasty and not too hard. The best part of it you can have either in a form of fine strings of pasta or in the shape of rectangular pieces of pasta. Each bowl is served with loads of fresh celery leaves which makes the noodle delicious and fregrant.
After being explained the making of Pan Mee and enjoyed a full bowl of Pan Mee by Uncle Wilson, it was so satisfying and I will defintely be back for more which I did . . . . . SidneyK

When I got home, I received an invitation card to attend a Ramadan dinner specially crafted by a well known Malay Cuisine Chef Azman Ahmad and his culinary team. In the invitation card, it said “You are kindly invited to attend a Ramadan tasting by Our Malay Cuisine Chef Azman Ahmad at Eccucino, Prince Hotel on xxth August 2008” Quickly I blocked the date on my diary.
On the day at Eccucino, I meet Chef Azman himself, great chef himself with full of personality. By the way do you know Chef Azman is famous for his fully flavoured Redangs . . . yes he is one of the top Malay Chef in Malaysia. This time Chef Azman had prepared a whole Roasted Lamb readily for carving which was the highlight of the night. Sitting next to the Roasted Lamb was Lemang and Chicken Rendang. As we moved along the food counter, his culinary chefs were busy churning out fresh chicken, beef, and fish dishes.
I was brief that the Ramadan Buffet will feature a cold selection of range salads and appetizers such as Acar, Otak-otak, Kerabu, Ulam-ulam and Serunding. As for the main dishes, there were the famous Malay Hot selection, Indian selections, Chinese selections, Middle Eastern selections, Western selection, Japanese selection such as Teppanyaki, Tempura, Sushi and Sashimi as well as Dessert selections featuring the Ice Cream Bar.
I tried the food served and it was delicious and marvelous especially for the Ramadan month and I also noticed that there was a lovely on going Gahazal performance too.
The Buka Puasa Buffet at Eccucino is available from 6.30pm to 10.30pm and priced at RM88.00++ per person.

I got an email invitation from Flavor, Swiss Garden Hotel KL to taste their Ramadan Buffet Spread which offering over 100 mouth-watery delicious dishes and there sure wanting myself to be present. As I arrived that night, I was greeted by a team of chefs headed by Chef Wong Yean Loong and watched them bring out the whole huge Roasted Lamb out from the kitchen. I was informed that it took six hours to prepare the lamb which was marinated with traditional ingredients such as lemon grass, galangal and turmeric. The Roasted Lamb was the main highlight of the night served with black pepper or mint sauce accompanied by Nasi Briyani. I managed to taste the tender juicy lamb, it was lovely and so was the Nasi Briyani.
The recommendations for the night were the Udang Masak Tempoyak, Rendang Tok, Sup Ekor, Bubur Lambuk and there were a lot more to feast such as Kerabu Aneka Laut, Rojak Penang, Bergedil Daging, Ulam-ulam Kampung, Ikan Masin Gelama, Ikan Masin Sepat accompanied by specially prepared Sambal-sambal and Sup Tradisi. The dishes were well recommended as my all time favorite dishes were Rendangs and Tempoyak and the chefs had them done perfectly delicious and so authenticly.
I went through the buffet spread served, as usual me being myself all the time and found Udang Masak Sambal, Ketam Masak Berlada, Ikan Patin Masak Tempoyak, Ayam Goreng Serai, Ikan Sembilan Masak, Pucuk Paku Lemak Serai, Daging Masak Padang, Nasi Goreng Nenas with Udang Kering and Ayam Pangnang Perchik. There were also grill food such as Satays, Ikan Bakar and Sotong Bakar accompanied by Bee Hoon, Mee Bakso, Mee Tom Yam, Mee Rebus and Laksa Johor which were totally a local delicious food. I got to confess the Pucuk Paku Lemak was done perfectly hot and so desirable. There were a huge spread of lovely desserts that I adored such as the local kuih muih and nyoya style, gateux, mousses, sago gula melaka and also kurma fruits.
