“Buka Puasa” at Mosaic, Mandarin Oriental Kuala Lumpur

P1230814

Lemang with chicken curry and beef rendang

When eating lemang, a good beef rendang is important as it is what makes the experience worth while. I used to love buying lemang from the stalls along the highway on the east coast, but occasionally, the beef rendang is tough and hardly fragrant.

Chef Din’s beef rendang

The lemang and beef rendang by Chef Kamarudin of Mandarin Oriental Kuala Lumpur is one of the better ones I’ve eaten so far. The sticky rice was aromatic and moist, while the beef was perfectly tender and full of flavour from the spicy gravy. It was a highlight at the Buka Puasa buffet and disappeared within minutes after the Muslims broke their fast.

Roasted lamb

The roast lamb was a beautiful sight, also gone within minutes upon display. I managed to get a few slices and found the meat tasty and tender. Unlike many other roast lambs, Mosaic’s version was lightly seasoned to allow the flavour of the meat to come through.

Sambal Udang Galah

One of my favourite dishes was the sambal udang galah, a spicy sweet chilli gravy of fresh river prawn. This went well with murtabak ayam. I’m no fan of bubur lambuk but this version was flavour packed and aromatic from the assorted spices.

Daging Temasik

There is a good selection of traditional salads, to complement the existing salad bar. I enjoyed the seafood kerabu and kerabu ayam herba best. Fiery yet nicely balanced in flavours.

Assorted Malay kuih

Chocolate treats

The bubur jagung manis was rich from the coconut milk and justly sweet. Durian fans will like the bubur kacang hijau durian which rif said was good. Remember to leave some stomach space for the assorted kuih — I liked the kuih ketayap best.
