Kampung fare and Thai specialities by Chef Mohammad Yusoff and Chef Nopporn Nutto reign supreme at Concorde Hotel Kuala Lumpur’s buka puasa buffet for this coming Ramadan.
Aptly named Gabungan Duo Rasa A La Kampung & Thai, the nightly spread will be based on two rotational menus highlighting the two chefs’ culinary handiwork.
Fire up your tastebuds with tantalising Thai starters such as Yum Gai Yang (spicy chicken salad with chilli and lime), Yum Woon Sen (Thai glass noodles salad with seafood), Nam Prik Khai Khem (assorted vegetables and salted egg with Thai chilli dip), Yam Ma Muang (mango salad with peanuts), Neua Yam Nam Tok (grilled beef salad) and Larb Gai (spicy minced chicken salad) amongst others.
Be prepared for a slew of spicy, sour, peppery, sweet and savoury flavours to stimulate your senses when you sample mains such as Gaeng Massamam Neua (beef curry with potatoes), Pad Krapow Kung (sautéed shrimp with basil) and Pla Muek Tod Kra Tiam (deep-fried squid with garlic and pepper).
Ramadan is also the time when cravings for delicious kampung delicacies arise. Chef Mohammad Yusoff has got your back with freshly grilled Ikan Bakar, creamy rich curries of Gulai Tunjang Minangkabau and Kambing Kurma Kasturi, Masak Lemak Udang Harimau Rebung, Kambing Masak Hitam Manis, Labu Lemak Putih and Ikan Tenggiri Berlado.
Requisite favourites Bubur Lambuk and Sup Gearbox to break your day-long fast with, alongside Hari Raya treats such as Kambing Panggang, Ayam Masak Merah, Satay and Daging Rendang Tok are also served.
Dessert time is no less lavish. Indulge your sweet tooth with tempting Thai Banana Coconut Milk, Bua Loy (rice dumplings in coconut milk) or Tab Tim Krob (diced waterchestnuts 'red rubies' with jackfruit strips in coconut milk).
Other delightful treats range from Baklava, Cendol and Rose Agar-agar, Apam Balik, Pandan Layer Cake, Sweet Corn Pudding and Dodol to Fresh Fruits, Sarawak Layer Cake, Durian Cream Cake and Ais Kacang.
