If you are looking to break fast with Thai cuisine this Ramadhan, do check out Chakri Palace. This time round, from 13 May 2019 onwards Chakri Palace will be serving buffets of Thai cuisine alongside local favourite dishes at their restaurants:

*Chakri Palace Sky View Dorsett Hotel Hartamas
*Imperial Chakri Palace KLCC
*Chakri Palace Pavilion KL

We had a chance to try out some of scrumptious dishes at a preview recently at Chakri Palace Sky View in Dorsett Hotel Hartamas. Their dedicated team of Thai chefs have certainly gone all out to tantalise diners with their spread of more than 50 modern and authentic Thai and local favourites. We were spoiled for choice, truly and couldn’t decide where to start!

From local ulam-ulam and kerabus to the traditional Mieng Kam, Thai Mango Salad, Som Tam to crispy Thai Spring Rolls and Crispy Fried Noodles, we took our time sampling a bit of everything. For main courses, we couldn’t have enough of their Thai Green Curry, Salted Egg Buttersauce Prawns, Tomyum Seafood, Spicy Squids, Black Pepper Beef and Chilli Fish. There were also local favourites like Rendang Dating Tok, Masak Lemak Gulai Daging, Ayam Kapitan and Nasi Beriani.

We walked around the spacious restaurant to sample delicacies prepared at the live action stalls. Our plates and bowls were filled with nicely-grilled Chicken & Beef Satay, Ikan Bakar and tongue-tingling Tom Yum Noodles.

Do remember to save some stomach room for Thai desserts like Mango Sticky Rice, Red Ruby Water Chestnuts and Pumpkin Tart. Additionally, go for the local Malay kuih, Bubur Jagung & Pisang and other sweets.

ENAK KL @ Feast Village – Modern Malay Cuisine

Enak KL is now back in town, after a short break some months back. Still in Feast Village, Starhill Gallery, Enak KL now occupies the lot where Tarbush used to be. Enak’s kitchen is still helmed by Chef Rani Ghazali who has been with the restaurant from the very beginning. Translated to mean “delicious”, “Enak” lives up to its name serving up traditional Malay cuisine, cooked lovingly by Chef Rani using age-old recipes from his family.

Kerabu, the Malay-styled salad using fresh local ingredients sits at the top of the menu and there are are 6 varieties listed there. We love our salads – we had 4 kerabus from that list!

I was told their most popular kerabu is the Kerabu Jambu Air Ikan Bilis, a unique mix of crunchy rose apples, fried anchovies tossed with shredded lemongrass, honey and lime juice.

Kerabu Kerang with cockles, beansprouts, coconut cream, kerisik (fried shredded coconut) and tamarind juice is another palate teaser. We also had the Kerabu Nangka with young jackfruit, prawns and bound together with ground fresh chillies, onions, belacan and kerisik. Kerabu Pucuk Paku had fiddlehead fern and chicken mixed with musk lime juice, kerisik and chilli padi for an extra kick.

We’re so glad we ordered their Sup Ekor because those chunks of oxtail were amazingly tender having been boiled for hours in a rich savoury broth perfumed by star anise, cardamom, cloves and even chill padi.

Once our oxtail soup has been slurped up, Chicken Satay made its way over. Tender juicy chunks of chicken meat dunked in a rich nutty sambal sauce – absolutely no complaints there!

Continuing with grilled items, we checked out some seafood items. After all, Malay-styled “ikan bakar” is always a favourite. So we had the Grilled Grouper and King Prawns and totally enjoyed the sweet freshness of the seafood. The fish and prawns had been marinated with a secret terutup glaze before grilling and that explains the incredible flavours. You can choose to eat the grilled food with several “sambals” – sambal asam jawa, kicap chilli padi or the regular sambal belacan.

If you are a beef lover, do not miss the Rusuk Daging here! It’s truly one of the best grilled beef ribs I’ve ever had. Tender yet with a yielding bite, the charcoal-grilled juicy meat was absolutely delicious – it’s our top favourite dish at Enak!

Asam Pedas is such a typical Malay dish and we just had to have this. We chose the fish version – our Asam Pedas had a generous portion of seabass in it. With dried red chillies, tamarind juice, laksa leaves and wild ginger paste ground into the paste for this gravy, be sure to have lots of rice ready.

Talking about rice, Enak serves complimentary rich with their main dishes and diners can choose from white rice, nasi tomato or nasi biryani. Both the nasi tomato and nasi biryani were divine, beautifully scented by spices embedded in the grains.

Delectable Nasi Tomato

To go with our rice, we also had the Sambal Udang Petai, Ayam Percik and two vegetable dishes – Kailan Goreng Ikan Masin and Kangkung Belacan. Needless to say, these made us did justice to the rice!

There are several traditional Malay desserts on Enak’s menu. Popular ones are their Pisang Goreng, Serawa Durian and Ais Batu Campur. Our favourites are the deep-fried bananas served with a sweet-spicy dip and the rich durian “congee” cooked in coconut milk and palm sugar which we happily dipped the roti jala and steamed glutinous rice balls.
