CLASSY:Those who wish to ‘buka puasa’ in a quiet, romantic setting should head for Harrods World Signature Shop and Tea Salon in KLCC
MUSLIMS, who want to break fast in a quiet and romantic setting, should head for Harrods World Signature Shop and Tea Salon in KLCC.
The Sunset Special promotion offers a fine dining experience and allows patrons to savour Harrods' signature dishes.
Harrods Malaysia marketing and business development manager Rosnah Abdullah said Eastern flavours have been infused in Western dishes in its semi-buffet.
"We can accommodate a maximum of 28 persons per day so it is more relaxing and quiet here," said Rosnah.
She said all items are refillable except for the five main courses.
The outlet's dining area is tastefully furnished in Georgian decor with white table cloths, and is complemented with paneled walls, plaster ceiling and windows decked in blinds.
Hanging on the walls are black and white and sephia photographs of Harrods building in Knightsbridge, London.
Harrods Malaysia chef de cuisine Tony Cham said most dishes are prepared using olive oil.
"We also bake and roast many of our dishes for a healthier meal," said Cham.
Appetisers are rotated daily with highlights being the fleshy, boiled Moroccan sweet potato salad tossed with Sumac herbs, spices, lime juice, parsley and olive oil.
Minestrone soup with linguini is made with finely diced vegetable stock including carrot, French beans, onion, celery, zucchini and kidney beans infused in a sweet and sour tomato soup.
One of the main course is the roasted spring chicken which is marinated for 48 hours with Arabic spices. It is served with Madras curry gravy and coloured briyani rice.
Another option is the perch fillet from Kenya. It is pan- seared, giving it a crispy crust and is then baked for that distinct texture. It is served with boiled potatoes, glazed carrots and fennel.
Harrods signature roast beef and herbs in Yorkshire pudding which usually costs RM65 in the a la carte menu is available in the Ramadan buffet.
Other main courses include escalope of salmon with salsa and avocado sauce as well as baked mixed herb rack of lamb complemented with coriander sauce.
Diners should also try the kurma fritters. Honey dates imported from the US are mixed in a batter of self-raising flour, salt and rice flour, among others and deep-fried.
Pandan-flavoured creme brulee and coconut tartlets are part of the dessert spread, which includes Malay kuih such as seri muka, tepung pelita and pulut panggang.
Wash down the meal with Harrods teh tarik, which is made from its range of English breakfast tea.
Fresh fruit juices are also available.
The semi-buffet, priced at RM98++ per person, ends on Aug 15. It is served from 6.30pm to 10pm daily.
Dress codes apply.
