Salad Bar

It’s almost fasting month, and most hotels and restaurants are geared up for the occasion – each boasting their version of a luxurious Ramadhan spread. While I’m not privy of all the Ramadhan buffets in town, I did try the “Buka Puasa” Fare at Mosaic in Mandarin Oriental Kuala Lumpur.

Ketupat, lemang and rendang

This year, expect a variety of local and international dishes prepared a la minute. Some of the local delights include gado-gado, serunding ayam, acar daging panggang, assorted kerabu, sup kambing, lemang, satay, rendang and sambal udang petai.

Beef rendang

I tucked into some beef rendang and it was wicked stuff. The beef was cooked just right and had just the right texture. Very delicious with lemang, this one. The sambal udang petai was also quite good – fiery, rich in flavour and aromatic from the belacan.

There’s also a Chinese, Indian and Noodle section, all offering a good selection of dishes. The buttermilk prawns from the Chinese selection was addictive, as was the chicken tandoori from the Indian station.

The Ramadhan buffet will also be available at Mandarin Oriental Kuala Lumpur’s newly refurbished Diamond Ballroom from 16 July to 1 August 2013. The Ramadhan feast at the ballroom offers live cooking stations with a variety of Malay, Chinese and Indian favourites. If you’re planning to break fast with a large group of friends and family, this would be an ideal venue.

Mango and coconut ice cream — good stuff!

Chocolate truffles

Desserts have always been a forte at Mandarin Oriental Kuala Lumpur, and the spread at Mosaic didn’t disappoint. I especially loved the macarons and chocolate pralines. The local bubur kacang hijau could have done with more coconut milk, but then again, I generally like my desserts richer in flavour.

The Ramadhan buffet is priced at RM138++ per person for both Mosaic and Diamond Ballroom. A bit pricey, but you get good quality ingredients and a nicer ambiance. For reservations, please call 03-2380 8888 or email [email protected]

    Hi Bangsar Babe,

    Tried the Mosaic for Buka Pusa on August 2nd. The Grill was the best part. The desserts looked good, but tasted average. The local food selection was minimum. The food was a 6/10 for me. I enjoyed the grill and the middle eastern choices. Cupcakes were stale. Next time I am going to the JW for Nenek’s instead.
