AFTER the first week of breaking fast with family and friends, now it’s time to get adventurous and try out the various buka puasa offerings the city has in store.

Hotels, restaurants and even fast food joints have come up with all kinds of everything to tempt taste buds and the Prince Hotel & Residence Kuala Lumpur has joined the bandwagon.

Spicy delights: The sambals and curries were also very much in demand.
The hotel’s Eccucino Brasserie is offering an extensive array of Malay cuisine in conjunction with the Holy month of Ramadan.

Rare find: Kerabu Telor Goreng is one of the dishes available.

Malay cuisine chef Azman Ahmad has come up with many hot favourites picked from his family recipe book.

The pickles, kerabu, serunding and Malay curries and sambals are prepared home style – no artificial preservatives and the ingredients are fresh.

Apart from Malay cuisine, hawker-styled food stations have been set up offering ABC, porridges, satay, asam laksa, and many others.

There’s also a fair share of international dishes like Tandoori, Chinese Hot and Western selections and an extensive dessert spread.

Prince Hotel public relations executive Sharon Lim said Azman's family recipes like the Ayam Percik, Lemang and Rendang Tok are very popular with diners.

“These items need to be replenished regularly as local fare is what most diners want to have first before they try out the other things,” she said.

Some of the interesting items that are available come from the cold section, which features a variety of salads and pickles.

For instance, the Kerabu Telor Goreng was very popular and so were the fruit pickles.

Sweet fillers: An extensive array of desserts awaits diners.

The porridge section was also popular as many preferred to break fast with something light before heading for the main section.

The presence of traditional ghazal musicians playing throughout dinner provided diners with a truly memorable experience indeed.

The Ramadan buffet is priced at RM75++ per adult and RM35++ per child. The outlet is also offering Sahur buffet from RM40++ onwards. It will be served from 12 midnight to 5am.
