Channenlling Medan Kampung — a village piazza — Pasar Baru at New World Petaling Jaya Hotel exudes charming sunset dining vibes amidst its lively market-style set-up.

Executive Chef Alexander Chong leads a team of capable chefs, rustling together a lavish buffet of over 100 traditional Malaysian delicacies for the upcoming Ramadan month.

Ornate pattern and dark grey slate tiles, decorative wooden spindles and modern pendant lights set a captivating stage for dining and merry-making. Divided into live cooking kitchens and culinary showcases: Malay, Indian, Chinese, noodle, salad and appetiser, fruit and dessert, Pasar Baru’s buffet is a departure from the same old, same old.

Heaps of poached yabbies, crabs, bamboo clams and prawns on beds of sparkling ice beds excite the senses from the get-go. Stroll further in to discover signature cook-to-order beef and chicken satay, grilled seafood, tandoori meat and freshly made Indian breads.

The noodle station is a notable pitstop especially when the house curry laksa is on the menu. Possible options served will include asam laksa, ‘lok lok’ skewers of fishballs, meat and vegetable and other hawker-style fare.

For the buka puasa period, expect deliciously heartwarming bubur lambuk (savoury and spiced rice porridge) and a most scrumptious whole roast lamb decked out in all its glory. Discerning foodie friends also vouch the chicken rice passed their taste test.

Good finds to keep on your radar include assorted ulam with condiments, deep-fried wontons, prawns cooked in tempoyak (fermented durian), garlic naan and rendang.

Apart from the wide selection of Malay kuih and Continental puddings, diners can help themselves to soft-serve ice-cream tricked up with irresistible toppings: from granola and nuts to unicorn sprinkles and fruit compotes. Freshly made dessert such as crêpes and waffles are available too.

Available from 17 May – 14 June 2018 from 6.30pm to 10.30pm, the “Medan Kampung” buffet at Pasar Baru is priced at RM168 nett per adult. For children aged 12 years and above, and senior citizens aged 60 years upwards, the price is RM84 nett per person.
Enjoy the Early Bird Deal with 20% discount for buka puasa bookings made by 4 May 2018. Call Pasar Baru, tel: 03 7682 0000 or email: Pasar Baru is located at New World Petaling Jaya Hotel, Paradigm, 1 Jalan SS7/26A, Kelana Jaya, Petaling Jaya, Selangor.

Coffee, tom yum, goma (black sesame), matcha (green tea), charcoal, yuzu…inventive flavours come and go like wildfire in the F&B scene. Lately, salted egg yolk and cheese are all the rage as the public can't get enough of the savoury flavours.
Since we had friends and family who weren't clued in on the saucy trend, what better way to induct them than bringing them over to Crab Factory, literally letting them paint the town table red with the resto’s Happy Meals. Depending on the size of your dining party, the value for money package meal deals let you chow down on crabs and seafood starting with Crab Lover Shiok at RM149.70++ per set, enough to feed 2-3 persons.
This set consists of 2 pieces of XL Meat Crab, King White Prawns, Squid, Mussels, Hamaguri Clams, Corn, Broccoli, Fried Mantao and Shallot Rice with a choice of sauces: Signature Southern Bang, Jamba Jamba, Garlic Butter, Creamy Lemak or Salted Egg. Both the Southern Bang and Jamba Jamba come in different spicy levels: mild, medium or O’l Crab-Death Valley (add RM5).
We chose to go with the Crab Lover Party (RM299.50++ for 4-5 pax) which comprises 2 pieces of XL Meat Crabs, King White Prawns, Squid, Mini Lobsters, Hamaguri Clams, Freshwater Prawns, Mussels, Corn, Broccoli, Fried Mantao, Fried Chicken Wings and Shallot Rice with medium hot Southern Bang Sauce.

Just to satisfy our curiosity, we also asked for Crab Factory’s new Cheese Sauce (RM6.90++) to be poured onto the seafood. It proved to be a good choice as we discovered the rich creamy cheesy sauce was finger-licking divine with the feisty hot sauce.

We relished the second saucy option of Salted Egg Sauce with 1 piece of XXL King Crab with corn, potato and fried mantao (RM298++). Surprisingly, the salted egg yolk accent was kinda muted but that wasn’t necessarily a bad thing since it won’t outshine the pricey crab. 

Try the Creamy Lemak Sauce if you prefer non-spicy sauces. It should appeal to local palates as the sauce is reminiscent of Malay-style 'masak lemak' minus the fiery hotness. Besides Meat Crabs (from RM123++ upwards), the resto has French Brown Crab (RM21++) too.

Other notable imported seafood worth sampling include Jumbo Japanese Sweet Prawns (500g, RM99++) and Mini Lobster (RM85++) with your choice of sauces and bag buddies, side dishes like Squid Tentacles, Chicken Wings, Waffles, Potato Wedges, etc.
