Harmonious flavours abound Le Méridien Kuala Lumpur’s Latest Recipe this coming Ramadhan with wide selection of delectable buffet spread from 6 May until 4 June 2019. With the theme Citarasa Harmoni, patrons are spoiled for choice with a myriad of local and western dishes specially curated by Chef Budiman and his team of culinary experts. We are sure these dishes wouldn’t disappoint your palate. Below are the top dishes you must taste at the buffet, tried and tasted by yours truly!
Many believe that bubur lambuk originated in 1950s from a Pakistani man, Allahyarham Said Benk in Kampung Baru aimed at serving people who came to the mosque to pray. Since then, bubur lambuk is a must-have dish for iftar (breaking of fast) every Ramadhan, just like dates. Chef Budiman added a twist to this traditional comforting dish to differentiate his porridge from others: aromatic paste and fragrant oil. We recommend a bowl of this soothing porridge since it is packed with nutrients believed to help digestion, prevent stomach ache and replenish energy after a long day of fasting. Be sure to refresh your body with the dish that was born out of goodwill!
The oxtail soup is full body of delicious taste and a personal favourite of ours. Called sup ekor in Malay, it is prepared by simmering the oxtail with local herbs and spices until it becomes tender . The signature dish is earthy, meaty, warm and comforting with a burst of flavour from the bukhari spice. Coriander leaves, potatoes and vegetables perfectly complement the flavour of the soup, tantalising your taste bud – a perfect dish for the whole the family! The oxtail soup by Chef Budiman truly embodies his philosophy in cooking: filled with love and bring people together. Trust us, one taste will change the way how you appreciate soup forever!
3.Homemade Mango Pudding with Fresh Mango
Desserts are every foodie’s dream. Doesn’t matter what age, we all have small sweet tooth that wants to bite down fruity yoghurt, yummy donuts or even chocolate cakes after long day of fasting. All desserts served at Le Meridien are lusciously presented at the desserts counter, especially the homemade mango pudding with fresh mango! The pudding is so tender with strong mango flavour without any artificial flavouring agent. Chef Budiman certainly used fresh mango because the texture is so soft and creamy. The mango pudding was also presented as good as it tastes; topped with strawberry, cube cut mangos and mint leaves.
You can smell the aroma of rendang as soon as you walked into the buffet, so just imagine how good it taste! Rendang utara is an extremely versatile dish. You can have the rendang with steaming white rice, ketupat, lemang and slices of bread. Cooking rendang utara involved a lot of patience (we heard from the ever-grinning chef that it needs to be slow cooked for six hours!) Since the beef was continuously churned with spices and bird eye chili, it becomes a treat for spicy food lovers! The beef is so tender and rich in flavours and spices that definitely leaves you wanting more!
