For Ramadhan 2018, the halal certified all-day dining outlet – nada lama, presents a scrumptious Iftar feast themed “Marhaban Ya Ramadhan” that offers an exciting array of dishes to whet one’s appetite. The theme this year means – welcome the holy month of Ramadhan – a month full of blessings, mercy and forgiveness.
At the official launch of the Ramadhan Open House, the General Manager of Hotel Equatorial Penang, Mr Andreas Knüssi welcomed guests with his opening speech which was followed by the lighting up of a 18 feet giant lamp centerpiece alongside with decorative cut-out motives and LED fairy lights hanging from the hotel’s signature atrium.

Kibas Panggang (lamb) served with Arabic Briyani Rice
Diners can look forward to all time favourites including kibas panggang served with Arabic Briyani rice, Murtabak durian, signature chilli crab, chicken shawarma and Hotel Equatorial Penang’s refreshing coconut shake. These are also the dishes specially recommended by the hotel’s Chef Azami Idris who has spent 33 years in the industry specializing in Asian cuisines, leaning specifically on authentic Malay dining.
Signature Chili Crabs
(chicken & lamb version also available)
Mongolian BBQ where diners get to pick their preferred seafood/meat and have it cooked on the spot by the chef in their signature Mongolian sauce
Variety of Dates
Lemang with serunding daging, ayam & ikan
(my absolute favourite!! I always look forward to lemang during Ramadhan)
Array of Acar (spicy pickled vegetables), Jelatah & Ulam
Tauhu Sumbat (beancurd stuffed with vegetables)
The splendid buffet spread offers an abundant variety. I personally enjoyed the grilled lamb chops from the Mix Grill station, the kibas panggang and arabic rice, the daging bahmia curry, the tangy acars, and not forgeting piping hot laksa.
I also enjoyed the lemang which is probably my favourite food to eat during Ramadhan!
Ayam Rendang Kunyit
Bunga Kobis Berempah (Spiced Cauliflower)
Grilled Seafood, Chicken, Lamb Chop & Sausages (Mix Grill Station)
Grilled Lamb with vegetables Wrap
Assorted Dim Sum
Dessert lovers are also spoilt for choice, my personal favourite being the walnut tart and the soft serve ice cream which you can dispense on your own for a tinge of nostalgia.
Overall, the spread at nada lama is certainly impressive and would suit most everyones’ palates. Selamat Berbuka Puasa!
Assorted traditional Malay Kuih
Soft Serve Ice Cream
Super love the cute ice cream machine! You can choose to dispense the ice cream into a bowl or on a cone
(A must try in my books!)
