Ramadhan Buka Puasa @ Crowne Plaza Mutiara Kuala Lumpur

It's the month of celebration again, why not head for a sumptuous buffet spread during this holy month of Ramadhan?

#1 Buah Kurma (Dates)

Themed "Semarak Ramadhan", here we go for a "Balik Kampung" experience to Planters' Inn at Crowne Plaza Mutiara Kuala Lumpur in the true spirit of togetherness, sharing and giving! 

From 21 July 2012 to 18 August 2012, Planters' Inn is offering a wide spread of sumptuous buffet along with Terawih Prayers by the Imam, collection of Zakat as well as Ghazal live band performance for the diners! 

#2 Live Performance

From Banana Fritters, Fried Sweet Potato, Fried Yam, to Fried Cempedak Fried Karipap, how can you not love these local bites? They're quite crispy when served hot, revealing myriad flavours.

#6 Seafood in Corn Salad

For the starter, I'm spoilt with choices of Keropok Lekor, Pulut Panggang, Otak-otakJeruk as well as Seafood Roulade and Asian Cold Platter. And the list is simply never ending! I'm quite surprised to find such a wonderful spread of buffet especially for Ramadhan. Thumbs up!

MAINS


#7 Carving Station 
Marinated Roasted Whole Lamb with Garlic & Lemongrass 

Sauces
Rosemary, BBQ, Mustard, Robert, Thyme Garlic, Shallot Salsa, Coriander Mango Salsa Mint, Horseradish Cream & Pommery and Dijon Mustard

Malaysia is famous for its traditional melting pot of flavourful dishes and Executive Chef Ridzuan, Chef Ishak and Kitchen Brigade satiate my palate with the tender roasted lamb with a zest of minty sauce. Simply nicely done and it is bursting with flavours from the marinade!

#8 Mongolian BBQ Counter
Assorted Raw Vegetables, Chicken Breast, Gizzard, Lamb, Red Snapper, 
almon Flower Crab, Fresh Prawn, Squid, Green Mussel

The key highlight of the evening is the live grilling and cooking at Planters' Inn poolside area. My stomach keeps growling when the aroma of BBQ wafts in the air. Sprinkled with sesame seeds, Mongolian BBQ is lighter in taste, less oily and healthier in a way.

#9 Live Cooking: Penang Char Kuey Teow 

Imagine the choices available from 12 “Kampung” style action stalls set up in and around Planters’ Inn restaurant, all serving up dishes only available during Ramadhan and displayed in outdoor gerai-gerai makanan style complete with pelita and lights.


#10 Pasta Mania
4 Types of Pasta: Spaghetti, Penne, Macaroni, Fettuccine 
Sauces: Bolognaise, Marinara & Carbonara Sauces 
Condiments: Chopped Herbs & Parmesan Cheese

I pick a simple bowlful of mac and cheese, surprisingly it is presented in smaller bite size and it give sme the choice of enjoying more variety. Simply hearty, it taste heavenly after I request for more cheese.

LOCAL DELIGHTS

#11 Nasi Briyani

#12 Ketam Goreng (Fried Flower Crabs)

#13 Ayam Goreng Berempah

#14 Daging Gulai Lemak dengan Nangka Muda (Beef)

Among the local delights, I enjoy the tender and delicious Rendang Rusa (Deer) the most, so good for my hearty appetite! Other than that, you should not miss the Nasi Kandar, Bubur Lambuk, Sambal Hati Ayam and Spicy Chicken with Kayu Manis.

#15 Lemang & Satay Station

#22 Blueberry Pudding

For hot dessert, I have something different than the usual Bread and Butter Pudding. The Chef recommends me the freshly-baked blueberry pudding with a scoop of vanilla ice-cream sprinkled with chocolate rice for the perfect hot and cold enjoyment. Indeed it suits my sweet tooth very well that I go for another bowlful!
