'Ramadan bazaar' buffet at hotel


VARIETY:Lexis Port Dickson’s Coffee House is offering over 100 authentic kampung dishes for the breaking of fast

FEAST on over 100 authentic kampung dishes in Lexis Port Dickson's Kampung with a Twist Ramadan buffet prepared by  its executive sous chef, Shah Eran Nasruddin.

The buffet is being held at the hotel's Coffee House which can seat 110 diners.

Its speciality is the roasted lamb, which is not usually on the coffee house's menu.

Shah Eran said  he uses a fusion of rosemary, garlic and basil, as well as Malay spices,  to marinate the lamb for a whole day.

"This is the secret to the lamb's special flavour. It is served with a sweet soya sauce-based gravy.

"The buffet will have a Ramadan  bazaar feel to it, with the same choices of food that can be found in a pasar malam during Ramadan," he said.

Besides the lamb,  other must-try dishes  include ayam panggang bersos percik, ikan masak lemak Minang, gulai udang Nyonya, paru masak berempah, ketam goreng bercili, sotong gulai belimbing buluh and udang rendang kering.

There will  also be 10 action stalls serving an array of local favourites such as chicken satay, curry mee, roti jala, yong tow foo and kerang rebus.

For dessert, there will be assorted Malay  kuih, jellies, puddings,  a variety of French pastries, cakes and ice-creams, among others.

The promotion is priced at RM60 nett for adults, and RM35 nett for children (aged between 4  and 12).

The buffet is available  until Aug 16 from 6.30pm to 10pm.

Guests  can perform the maghrib and isyak prayers at the surau  on Level 1 of the hotel.

Guests can also take  advantage of the promotional room rates being offered during this period, which includes  dinner and sahur meals for two persons.
