JW Marriot Ramadhan Buffet 2013

Alhamdulillah, my son Yassin completed his fasting yesterday and got to experience his first hotel break-fasting. Truly thankful for the invitation extended by JW Marriott Hotel Kuala Lumpur.

I was there last year and happy to to know that JW Marriott Hotel Kuala Lumpur maintained its long-standing tradition of serving nenek’s traditional recipes for its buka puasa buffet. There are a total of 138 nenek‘s dishes served at the buffet and the recipes were/are all handed down from the grandmothers of the chefs at the JW Marriott Kuala Lumpur. In addition, there are also some 30-odd modern dishes interpreted by the chefs themselves.

The feast features some harder to find dishes such as Rendang Kerang, Daging Salai Masak Lemak dengan Bachang, Sambal Udang dengan Petai and Tongkeng Ayam Goreng Cili -these made from authentic recipes learnt at nenek’s hearth. Sweet endings come in the form of the Gerai Bubur-serving a selection of sweet fruit and legume porridges, and the ever popular shaved ice and rose syrup creation, Ais Kacang, both providing perfect options to ending the meal.

Here’s some pictures of the deliciously lingering mouthwatering awesome dishes:
