As you can see from my link (http://www.rebeccasaw.com/list-of-buka-puasa-buffets-in-kl-to-buka-puasa-this-2013/) the amount of buka puasa reviews I do yearly is quite substantial.
From my experience, most offer a similar spread each year. It can be a bore after a while, roast lamb (not that I’ll ever get bored of it 😛 ), rendang and satay.
For Sime Darby Convention Centre it was a different experience for me because it is my first visit to sample their Ramadan buffet. The preview was held really early but I’m posting it now since everyone is just about to get into the Ramadan mood. 🙂
So what impressed me about the buka puasa spread here?
For one it is the sheer variety for the price paid. The team at SDCC is ready with its early bird’s vouchers on sale from as low as RM59nett. This value-for-money deal is set to take guests on a culinary journey that will reignite the spirit of breaking fast among Malaysians– from serving the customary Zam Zam water and assorted dates, to preparing more than 100 eclectic mix of Arabic, Western, and Chinese dishes that have been identified as all-time favourites.
The live stations are another good reason why having your buka puasa at Sime Darby Convention Centre is a good idea. There are more than 30 (yes, THIRTY) live stations that dishes out piping hot and fresh food the entire duration of the buffet.
I have nothing against food served in chafing dishes and hot pots, but nothing beats fresh right? 🙂
What is Ramadhan without the popular bubur lambuk? The team of chefs headed by Chef Faisal Ismail have given the traditional bubur lambuk a healthy twist. This very light and soupy Bubur Lambuk is perfect as a starter.
A mouth-watering dessert table await diners.
The local ones are Nyonya and Malay kuih and international are French pastries, delicious cakes, puddings and for a healthier option- an array of local fruits. A permanent feature at the buffet line on popular demand will be the Ice Cream Goreng stall and ABC offering more than 30 types of condiments and assorted syrups!
We had a good feast and not only there are pleasant variety, food tasted good. The curries are thick and fragrant, the desserts fresh and the meats tender and juicy!
At the preview the fashion show showcased really gorgeous designs and I was pleased to meet the local designers behind the brands. I’m really impressed with the gowns I saw and definitely interested in purchasing one for myself! 🙂
PS: Here is my list of Ramadan buffets in 2013 and even back to 2011. LINK–> http://www.rebeccasaw.com/list-of-buka-puasa-buffets-in-kl-to-buka-puasa-this-2013/
After sampling about 20 buffets annually for years, I can tell you that ramadan buffets are almost similar everywhere EVERY YEAR.
Prices goes up every year though!
Anyhow, this list (http://www.rebeccasaw.com/list-of-buka-puasa-buffets-in-kl-to-buka-puasa-this-2013/) will give you a general idea of how each Ramadan buffet/buka puasa buffet is like in each of the listed venues.
The “Buka Puasa buffet” will start from the second day of Ramadan from 6.30pm to 10.30pm and is priced at RM80.00++ per person. Group bookings and corporate packages are also available during Ramadan and for open house celebration.
