Kembara Tujuh Sajian at ONE WORLD HOTEL, Petaling jaya

Every year when the holy month of Ramadhan rolls in, the Cinnamon Coffee House in One World Hotel is a big burst of colours, aromas and tastes! On any ordinary day, the dinner buffet selection in Cinnamon is always huge and varied but when it’s Ramadhan, the selections become even more extensive and mind-boggling! (if that’s even possible!)

 

This year is no different – the theme is “Kembara Tujuh Sajian” where dishes from 7 states of Malaysia are presented. Guests get to indulge on kampong-styled traditional dishes and local street fares from Selangor, Pulau Pinang, Johor, Kedah, Melaka, Perak and Negeri Sembilan prepared by Executive Sous Chef Saiful Baharin and his culinary team. Imagine – 7 states and the whole Cinnamon is all decked out with additional stalls in the side terrace and walkways. I can’t imagine how it would be if all the states of Malaysia are featured!

The main aisle of Cinnamon has long buffet tables serving all kinds of appetizers (from cold boiled seafood to local kerabus), mains (curries, rendang & popular local dishes like Kari Ayam Kandar, Sambal Udang Petai, Kambing Semur Kerisik, Gulai Daging Tetel Kawah Tok, Asam Ikan Pedas, Perut Lembu Masak Cili Api and Sayur Pucuk Manis. Numerous live food stations are kept very busy, like the Indian station with naans and curries, Hainanese Chicken Rice, Sup Kambing, Goreng-goreng, Rojak Mamak, Mee Kari and BBQ Seafood. These time-tested dishes are showcased in 6 rotational menus with over 100 items daily.

Succulent & juicy Ayam Percik

Then there are the international line-up: the Japanese and Western counters are always crowded.

Save room for the desserts as the selection is really very extensive. Desserts range from Western-styled sweets such as Coconut Choux, Apple Cinnamon Frangipane, Baked Lime Cheese Cake, Mango Panna Cotta, Raspberry Éclair, Pavlova to colourful local ones like Assorted Kuih Muih, Agar Agar, Kek Kukus, Bubur Pengat Pisang, Ais Kacang and Pulut Serawa Durian.

Don’t miss out the Chocolate Fountain!

ALOFT KUALA LUMPUR SENTRAL – Festive CNY Buffet Spread

In Malaysia, nothing defines a celebration more than sitting down to a good meal with loved ones. With the upcoming lunar new year just round the corner, the Chinese are looking forward to welcoming the Year of the Pig with even greater gusto. With this in mind, Aloft Kuala Lumpur Sentral is all set with auspicious dishes at Nook as well as specially created set menus for private dining from now until 20 February 2019.

Executive Chinese Chef Ng Kok Wai and team are busy preparing the buffet spread at Nook, the all-day dining eatery in the hotel, with special highlights of Chinese festive offerings. This is the time to savour oriental favourites like Jellyfish Yee Sang, Braised Crab Roe Broth, Tiger Prawns in Herbal Broth, Peking Duck, Roast Lamb Leg Szechuan-style, Fortune 8-Treasure Duck, Steamed Seabass Chongqing-style, Fish Fillet with HK “Sha-Cha” Sauce, Stir-fried Squids Monggolian-style and Stewed “Pak Lin” Mushrooms with Black Moss & Vegetables, just to name some. Besides these special festive dishes, there will also be a good variety of local dishes to complement the buffet.

DIY Jellyfish Yee Sang is available on the buffet line

Dishes for the Reunion Dinner on Lunar New Year Eve and for the First Day of the Lunar New Year will be quite different. We truly enjoyed the Chinese desserts served here, so be sure to leave plenty of stomach space for their Shanghainese Fried Nian Gao with Yam, Chilled Snow Lotus with Peach Resin, Leng Chee Kang with Fruity Beans and Osmanthus Cake with Wolfberries.

Feast of Treasures for Chinese New Year @ NEW WORLD PETALING JAYA HOTEL

The New World Petaling Jaya Hotel may not have a Chinese restaurant but Executive Chef Joshua Er, Banquet Sous Chef Chai Chun Keong together with their culinary team are all set to serve Chinese festive dishes to usher in the Year of the Pig. For group booking, the hotel’s functions rooms will be the venue for the celebrations – they will be transformed into opulent dining halls decked with oriental splendour. And within these Shanghai-themed walls, you get to toss your Yee Sang heartily and continue to feast on the various festive dishes prepared by the chefs.

We had a sampling of some of the dishes featured in the special set menus, which are available now until 28 February 2019 for both lunch and dinner. Prices start at RM1,388+ per table of 10 pax. For a hotel which does not have its own Chinese restaurant/kitchen, we were impressed by the quality, taste and presentation of the festive dishes.

The Steamed Garoupa stood out for its sweet freshness, as did the Braised Seafood Treasures Soup full of premium ingredients. The old-school style of the Crispy Roasted Chicken with Prawn Crackers was deliciously nostalgic – it tasted just like what I had eaten during childhood (and of course those prawn crackers disappeared first!). Dishes signifying good luck, fortune and prosperity are absolute musts – Deep-fried Prawns with Wasabi Mayonnaise and Braised Vegetables with Mushrooms & Black Moss are typical examples.

MO-MO-PARADISE at J’s Gate Dining, Lot 10 Kuala Lumpur

If you are a fan of Shabu-Shabu and Sukiyaki, then you’d be very happy to know that Mo-Mo-Paradise is now open in Kuala Lumpur. I am a definite fan of both and I can’t be more ecstatic now that I can have the best of both, in Mo-Mo-Paradise located in J’s Gate Dining at Lot 10 Shopping Centre. For those who are not aware, J’s Gate Dining is a curated space offering the best of Japanese cuisine and Mo-Mo-Paradise has joined the line-up of sterling outlets.

Cosy and comfortable seating in Mo-Mo-Paradise

The local founders of Mo-Mo-Paradise Malaysia are 3 young entrepreneurs: Ee Soon Wei, Yap Chor Wen and KC Loh. Being serious foodies, these 3 friends started bonding while studying in Australia and a chance meeting with Mo-Mo-Paradise Japan had them opening this first outlet in Malaysia. Mo-Mo-Paradise first opened in Shinjuku Kabukicho, Tokyo way back in 1993 with the objective to provide the ultimate Shabu-Shau and Sukiyaki experience. Their success hinges very much on their focus in using a good variety of fresh, high-quality ingredients accompanied by warm hospitality and all at affordable dining prices. These are the exact principles employed in Mo-Mo-Paradise Kuala Lumpur.

Waiting for the broth to boil

Just look at these fresh premium cuts of meat! Eat as much as you can!

Sakura pork sourced locally and air-flown beef from Australia are the staple meats served in Mo-Mo-Paradise. From the vegetables bar, there’s a good variety of greens, mushrooms, fungus and beancurd rolls.

Those beancurd rolls are superb – can’t remember how many I took!

Mo-Mo-Paradise offers an “All You Can Eat” concept within a time limit of 100 minutes (believe me, this is more than enough time for a satisfying all-you-can-eat meal!) and diners can choose either or both Shabu-Shabu or/and Sukiyaki. Shabu-Shabu is the lighter broth, enjoyed with “ponzu” or “gomadare” (sesame) sauces. On the other hand, Sukiyaki is the richer, sweet-salty broth and of a darker hue.

The All-You-Can-Eat meal is priced at RM68++/person for a single pot and RM76++/person for a mixed pot.

 

All meats and vegetables are refillable within the 100 minutes time limit. Non-alcoholic beverages such as sodas and coffee are also refillable at RM4.50 while water and tea are complimentary.

For reservations/more information, please call +603-2110-3588.

I’ll definitely be going back to Mo-Mo-Paradise for my “best of both worlds” meal soon. It’s so easy to get there too – I took the MRT, got out at the Pavilion Bukit Bintang station and upon exiting Gate D, take the lift beside Zara @ Lot 10 up to the 4th level and you are at J’s Gate Dining!

Pssttt…if you are on the Keto Diet or No Carb Diet, this is just perfect for you!

BUCKED OUT SEAFOOD FEAST at GOBO CHIT CHAT, Traders Hotel Kuala Lumpur

Come Friday and Saturday evening just before 6.30pm, there’s a huge crowd looming at the entrance of Gobo Chit Chat, Traders Hotel Kuala Lumpur. For what, you may ask. Well, they are just waiting for the clock to strike 6.30pm for the Bucked Out Seafood Market to welcome diners. Yes, this was the scene I saw when I was there several weeks ago – people who had made reservations were all waiting to get into Gobo Chit Chat!

Baskets of raw shrimps everywhere!

Slipper Lobsters

From the entrance, I caught whiffs of fresh seafood wafting out and that’s hardly surprising because the counters and tables inside were practically groaning under the weight of fresh fish, crustaceans, shellfish and all kinds of seafood! I was told there are more than 130 types of food on the buffet spread. Among other things, I spotted pots and pans of Szechuan-style Spicy Mud Crabs, Grilled Squids in Orange Sauce, Tiger Prawns with Cream Corn, Slipper Lobsters in Cream Cheese and Kam Heong Bamboo Clams.

My favourite!


Oysters lover, anyone? These babies were really good!

My plate, filled with favourites

Apart from the ready-cooked dishes, the main attraction of this seafood feast is that you can fill up buckets of your favourite fresh seafood and then hand them over to the chefs to cook it in your selected sauce – hence the name “Bucked Out Seafood!” The serving crew will then bring your bucket of cooked seafood to your table! Take your pick from a variety of sauces available: curry cheese, Sichuan chilli, sambal, rendang and Thai coriander lime garlic.

Pick your seafood into a bucket like this

Goodies from our bucket!

 

Of course besides seafood, there are also meats, chicken, pasta, noodles, salads and desserts on the buffet – take your pick from the Japanese, Indian and Western food counters.

Salmon Pizza

Roast Lamb

Fragrant Grilled Chicken

Curry Mud Crabs cooked to order, served with fried mantou!

The Bucked Out Seafood Buffet is available every Friday and Saturday from 6.30pm to 10.30pm at RM149 nett per person.
