Load your plates amidst the lush tropical gardens facing an exquisite view of the Saujana Hotel’s lake and pool during your buka puasa feast this 28 June to 27 July, 2014.
This “al fresco” setting feast features over 140 traditional and regional Malaysian specialities as well as 15 perennial hawker stall favourites, showcasing a good range of both local and international cuisine.
The Saujana Hotel KL is a very serene resort.
I have always enjoyed the greens & tranquillity of the Saujana area. I remembered marvellous dinners at The Restaurant, The Club as well as educational wine sessions at Senja, their Italian restaurant.
That evening, we were given a surprise sneak preview of their latest outlet; Charcoal, a one -of-a-kind open-grill dining concept restaurant (it reminded me of Skirt at W Sentosa) that offers guests an in-door charcoal-grill experience in a contemporary setting.
The menu surprised me more; it features local favourites and a good selection of Peranakan dishes in addition to prime cuts of meat, delectable seafood and vegetables grilled to perfection.
Imaging your partner digging into a tomahawk while you snack on Nyonya spring rolls, chicken curries and noodles! Why not eh? 🙂
But I digress. I’ll be back for a full course dinner soon at Charcoal so you will be reading about it here; but for today the Ramadan spread entices.
As usual to start I loaded up on the lamb.
And it didn’t disappoint. Both the outer and inner meat are tasty; the inner flesh retained its juicy, pink insides while the outer layer are flavourful thanks to its marinate.
While the lamb is a fixed highlight, guests can look forward to savour 5 rotating menus throughout the Ramadan month.
Expected items include ulam, kerabu, soups and starter such as “Kerabu Mangga Muda”, “Kerabu Tempeh”, “Traditional Gado Gado with Rich Peanut Gravy”, “Acar Rampai”, “Lemang Pulut Ketupat with Serunding Ayam or Daging”, “Soup Tulang Gear Box”, and “Bubur Lambuk”.
Over at the mains, we enjoyed mouthwatering dishes such as “Kambing Masak Gulai Kawah”, “Ketam Masak Lemak Chilli Padi”, “Daging Rendang Tok”, “Gulai Masam Ikan Tenggiri with Terung Hijau”, “Udang Masak Tomato”, “Pucuk Ubi Masak Lemak Chilli Api”, and “Daging Masak Asam”.
Traditional states favourites such as ”Nasi Kerabu Kukus with Rendang Ikan Tongkol” are not forgotten and are available on rotation. Same goes for the rice; guests can enjoy the mains accompanied with a variety of flavoured and aromatic rices such as “Nasi Hujan Panas”, “Nasi Minyak with Kacang Hijau”, “Nasi Kedah” and “Nasi Kaseri.
Lip-smacking sweet creations such as Pulut Durian (my favourite!), delicate local Malay kuih and colourful jellies/puddings are the delectable desserts that enticed us to stuff ourselves silly after all the lamb, satay, curries and rice!
Resistance is futile really when presented with such gorgeous cakes and desserts.
Last but not least, an abundance of local fruits for digestion.
