Ramadhan Berbuka Puasa Buffet @ Swez Brasserie, Eastin Hotel PJ

Courtesy to Eastin Hotel for the invite, I'm one of the lucky media to attend the Press Conference of Nostalgia P. Ramlee which revolves around a food preview for the Holy Month of Ramadhan.

Savor the favourite food of Malaysia’s most loved musical legend, the late Tan Sri P. Ramlee during this Ramadhan. The hotel has lined up an engaging and interactive programme called ‘Nostalgia P.Ramlee’ to create a nostalgic food experience including a series of fun activities from 21 July to 18 August 2012.

Newly refurbished and renovated, I find this Swes Brasserie Coffee House very inviting with its contemporary setting, touched with lush green decoration. 

Then I get to enjoy the cooking demonstration by Chef Mohd Azmi Sarginen, head of Malay Cuisine at Eastin Hotel, PJ. This young man started his culinary career at the tender age of 17, and now with 15 years of experience, he'd never go wrong with any Malay delicacies.

#1 Kari Ikan Bawal Berbendi

Here's his most popular dish, the curry pomfret fish with ladies finger. The fish is deeply infused with the rich coconut milk while retaining its fresh flavours. Thumbs up to the curry, with good ratio of sweet spiciness.

#2 Rendang Daging 

#3 Nasi Briyani Putih

So soft and fluffy, this is how a good nasi briyani should taste like! I'm totally smitten when the aroma of cashew nuts and fried onions waft in the air with a hint of sweet red dates. Best served with the deep-fried chicken. Delicious!

#4 Terung dalam Kari Dhal 

Lies within the thick gravy I found the goodness of the fresh brinjals and potatoes. A very flavouful dip to go with the rice.

#5 Kambing Panggang Nasi Bukhari

A whole lamb is roasted into perfection. From the crispy burnt skin to the tender meat itself, I'm totally speechless. This is probably the best nasi bukhari I have ever tried!

#6 Burung Puyuh Goreng 

One is never enough if you love deep-fried foodstuff! This fried quail meat is so petite yet full of juicy meat enveloped with slightly spicy skin. I have always enjoyed the quail eggs but I didn't know that the bird itself can be so tasty!

#7 Seafood Curry

#8 Smoked Turkey Breast

Besides getting to savour the favorite dishes of P. Ramlee, other traditional, local, Middle Eastern, Japanese and Western cuisine are injected into the buffet spread.

#9 Thick Salmon Cuts

#10 Fresh Seafood--- Mussels and Prawns

#11 Sauteed Garden Vegetable with Orange Hollandaise 

If raw meat is not your scene, the Chinese-styled dishes are ready to cater for your needs. The vegetables are lightly done, finished with the creamy, slightly eggy sauce. Very flavourful without smothering the original fresh vegetables.

#12 American Bread and Buns

#13 Malaysian Tropical Fruits

Not an ordinary fruit platter in hotels. It comprises of the local thirst-quenching fruits such as pineapple, pink guava, rambutan and longan. What a wide assortment for the healthy way to go!

#14 Malaysian Kuih

Here comes the long-waited local traditional cakes. So sweet and flavourful they are, what a sinful delight! Not to forget, the P. Ramlee's favourite Cekodok Pisang is available too. Many show thumbs up to the deep-fried, mashed banana fritters. 

#15 Sago Gula Melaka

Dip the mild sago into the Gula Melaka and sink your teeth into it with mango cubes and raisins. I personally call this as the best dessert of the evening!

#16 Chocolate Moulleux

#17 Dark Sweet Cheeries Pudding

#18 Chocolate Fondue 

#19 Bubur Kacang Hijau 

Dessert lovers would sink your teeth into this rich, sweet green bean dessert. Sampling Tan Sri P. Ramlee's favourite food as one reminisces about his music and songs will definitely create an unforgettable breaking fast experience!
