It’s nearly the month of Ramadan, and the dining scene is abuzz with Ramadan buffets galore. This year, I was invited to sample Eastin Hotel’s specially prepared buffet. Their theme for Ramadan 2015 is Eastin Ku Kampung Ku and promises an array of traditional fasting favourites.

I loved the chicken shawarma. The grilled chicken pieces were juicy and well marinated, bursting with flavour.

Nasi Lemak Kukus with all its condiments provided – hard boiled eggs, cucumbers, Ikan bilis and Sambal

I couldn’t resist the Nasi Lemak Kukus! The rice was steamy, hot and fragrant. And the accompanying sambal had a spicy kick to it.

Beef Curry Masak Hitam

Definitely lots of curries in the mains with some non spicy dishes as well for variety. I personally enjoyed the seabass with cilantro sauce and the fried okra. The beef curry was delicious as well!

Action station – The Grill! (Panggang station) One of the most popular stations at any buffet. Grilled meats include prawns, chicken, fish, beef and lamb.
