Oakwood Hotel & Residence Kuala Lumpur is conveniently located on Jalan Ampang which is also known as the Embassy Row, home to many diplomatic missions and also a stone’s throw away from KLCC and Bukit Bintang areas. Read our previous post on stay review at Oakwood Hotel Kuala Lumpur.
Oakwood Hotel & Residence Kuala Lumpur presents another feast of local cuisine called ‘SAJIAN MELAYU ASLI’ at TrEat Restaurant & Bar, and is available until 2nd June 2019. When we came, there was an event held with orphanage, which is part of the CSR initiative by the hotel.
The specialty of Malay dishes are prepared from family recipes that were handed down from generations. These dishes are strong, spicy and aromatic, combining the rich taste of herbs and spices. Syaiful Alwi, the Head Chef of Oakwood Hotel & Residences Kuala Lumpur, has searched far and wide for traditional recipes when putting the buka puasa buffet together.
Desserts are prepared from traditional to modern, as well as varieties from hot to cold ones. Of course they have Dates; a must-have for Ramadan!
House special includes a juicy lamb with choices of sauce: Mint, BBQ, and Black Pepper.
Dalcha Kambing is served for another choice of lamb.
Nasi Kambing & Kambing Bakar are also in the selections but be prepared to wait since the stall is busy because it is everyone’s favourite.
Traditional ulam is also offered along to eat with varieties of sambal for a healthier course aside from western salad selections.
Kailan Ikan Masin, Shafa’s favourite type of vegetable cooking is also there!
Various types of Kerabu, traditional salads for Malay, are also served such as Kerabu Mangga, Kerabu Pucuk Ubi, Kerabu Taugeh, Kerabu Udang, Kerabu Daging, Kerabu Kacang Botol and Kerabu Kaki Ayam.
Papadom, Keropok Ikan and Ketam Goreng Bercili for chili crab lovers are also present.
Squid lovers on the other hand can enjoy a taste of their Sotong Kembang Kicap Pedas.
And Asam Pedas Ikan Pari just perfect for anyone who loves stingray.
But for chicken lovers, there’s Ayam Masak Merah.
Another one of Shafa’s favourite, the Nasi Hujan Panas, looked so good with the cashewnuts served on top of the colourful rice.
Just right for their scrumptious servings of grilled fish and prawns.
Different kinds of fritters are also available: Pisang Goreng, Sukun, Cempedak, Cucur Ikan Bilis and Cucur Udang.
Malaysian’s favourite desserts ABC & Cendol of course will never be missed in the buffet!
Aside from the cold drinks available by the pool, there are also burgers, Sup Gearbox, Lemang and Satay.
Fruits, coffees and teas are available to finish off a full belly along with performances from the orphanage as they say thanks.
The Sajian Melayu Asli buffet price is at MYR 75nett (adult) and MYR 38nett (children aged 4-12 and senior citizens aged 55 & above). In-house guests can enjoy this Buka Puasa buffet at 20% discount and large groups can take advantage of the “Buy 8, Free 1” discount.
We would like to send our special thanks to Ellie Abdul Aziz for accompanying Shafa on this event since Yusof cannot be there. She helped us a lot especially with the photos!
And of course, a big thank you to Carol Chin from Oakwood Hotel & Residence Kuala Lumpur for the arrangements!
