Review: Selera Ramadhan Ala Kampung @ Armada Hotel

>> Sunday, June 30, 2013

The date is drawing closer to the start of the holy month of Ramadhan where all Muslims will begin fasting. Many restaurants & hotels are also preparing their "Buka Puasa"/"breaking of fast" menu to provide all Muslims & people in Malaysia an enjoyable dining experience as they break fast during the month of Ramadhan.

Utara Coffee House of Armada Hotel Petaling Jaya is proud to present to you their Selera Ramadhan Ala Kampung! Featuring an elaborate spread of over 100 tantalizing authentic kampung dishes, the team of professional chefs aim to bring you on a nostalgic journey to your well-loved mom's or grandma's cooking.

You will be spoilt for choice with the variety of dishes like the Kerabu, Lemang, Serunding, Satay, Roast Whole Lamb, Asam Laksa, & more!

Here are some of the dishes available at the sumptous buffet spread:

Ulam-Ulam/ Raw Vegetables
Begin your buka puasa with something refreshing & healthy with the fresh vegetables & herbs :)

Various Spicy Sauces/Dips (Sambal) to Accompany the Ulam

Nasi Kerabu/Ulam
My favourite for the night! Seriously...! I haven't had this for a while & I was very surprised that it was so tasty! The taste of the kerabu in the rice wasn't over-powering & the ulam/raw vegetables weren't sliced too chunky :) Thumbs up!

Kerabu Daging
I loved this as well :)

Kerabu Kulit Kaki Ayam/De-boned Chicken Feet
Interesting dish! I haven't had this for ages......

Ikan & Telur Masin...

Rojak Buah


Kari Kepala Ikan/Fish Head Curry

Nasi Briyani
Pretty tasty, but I felt that the rice was a little too soft for my liking of a nasi briyani.

Chicken Kebab
This one's actually good! What the chef does is to stuff the kebab chicken meat into mini pita bread with some vegetables & mayonnaise - I loved the smokiness of the chicken tucked in the humble pita bread & its fillings.

Ayam Mas Merah Bersusu

Sotong Masak Lemak

Lemang & Serunding Ayam/Daging
The lemang/fire-roasted glutinous rice was really soft & delicious :) Went very well with the serunding/meat floss.

That's quite a lot of dishes already, right? Haha...there are LOADS more like the Nasi Tomato Kacang Pis, Nasi Mentega Jintan Manis, Nasi Bukhari Ayam, Bubur Lambuk and the uniquely prepared  Nasi Seafood Zaini – Chef Zaini’s Secret Recipe. Other dishes include Ayam Mas Merah Bersusu, Mutton Masalla, Kerang Cili Thai, Roast Duck Hong Kong Style, Green Beef Curry, Siput Sedut Masak Lemak Cili Padi, Black Pepper Flower Crab and Pei Pai Duck with Sweet Sauce.

*takes a deep breath* 

Ikan Yu Masak Lemak Bernenas, Rendang Perut, Siput Sedut Masak Cili Api and Szechuan Beancurd with Seafood, Fattelal, Lobiah Ke Lahm Ghanam and Qara Be Lahmel El Ghanam....

I can't even say out all the long list of dishes in 1 breath! There are also desserts to look forward to indulge!

Dessert: Fresh Fruits

Dessert: Bubur Gandum

Dessert: Assorted Malay & Nyonya Kuih
I love the colours! :D

Dessert: Red Velvet Cake (and many others to choose from)

My 1st plate...wonderful start to the gastronomic journey!

*I think I'm on the verge of getting a heart attack with the load of dishes available!*

You'll also find stalls featuring the best of Armada’s Ramadhan delicacies such as  Satay, Otak-Otak Daun Nipah, Keropok Ikan dan Likor and the infamous Sup Tulang Lembu, Perut dan Hati served with Roti Bai.

Freshly "barbecue-d" Otak-Otak Daun Nipah & Satay

Satay - I liked it

Whole Roast Lamb

Roast Lamb & Otak-Otak
I actually prefer the roast lamb from Seri Pacific Hotel over this one, but I must say that the otak-otak is a must-have here! I can't get good otak-otak just anywhere in PJ (free-flow some more weiiii.....) :P

Generous portion of otak-otak that's well marinated ;)

Sup stall - Sup Tulang Lembu, Perut dan Hati served with Roti Bai

Penang-style Assam Laksa!

I felt the soup was a little too thick for my liking & lacks the fragrance of the bunga gantang, but overall, it's a good treat :)

Fresh seafood (can be grilled, I think)

Dessert: Ice Kacang

To end your buka puasa experience at Armada with maximum-satisfaction, you have to try the Roti Durian (for durian lovers) - creamy durian filling in a crispy & chewy roti canai dough :)

Roti Durian goes well with Vanilla Ice-Cream too!
I was SOOOO stuffed....but SATISFIED! :D
