Before you say “Hey, you are wrong, there are other buffets which I think are better“, let me point out that this is a simple case of ‘Taste is subjective‘, and that ‘I have yet to taste the other buffets‘.
To date, the Ramadhan buffet called ‘The Original Macam-Macam Ramadhan Mega Buffet’ is the best for me, serving a wide variety of food, with some specially brought in chefs that does nothing short of ensure it remains at its best.
This year, the highlights come all the way from Cambodia as Cambodian chefs role out local Cambodian delicacies like Pad Thai, Banh Chok, Phobo, Som Tam and Nom Dong Dot. These delicacies are made served as the main dish, and it was a ‘two thumbs-up’ from me. I have to say that I didn’t bother about the names of the food, except the fact that it was from Cambodia, but clamps, prawns, chicken and fish were part of this amazing buffet. You can check out the photos below which feature the Cambodian dishes served.
Next to the Cambodian/Indo-China dishes were Penang food. Penang basically won my heart with Penang Char Kueh Tiaw, Laksa Asam Penang, and Prawn Mee, buta dish which is a little like Sotong Kangkung back here in Sarawak, but taste amazingly different.
Apart from the dishes I mentioned above, there was also other Western, Chinese, Japanese and Middle Eastern delicacies. And I should not also forget the Malay cusine which was lead by Sambal Asam!
To end the whole amazing buffet, you have options of cendol, ice cream and a wide variety juices and fruits.
So, if you have yet to try this amazing buffer, head on to Grand Margherita Hotel, Kuching and taste this RM80++/per person buffet. Just so you know, YB Datuk Haji Talib Zulpilip (A. Minister of Tourism, Sarawak) was an enthusiactic man when he officially opened this buffet. He’s the guy looking super cute in traditional outfit below.
Ahh, there is also a special weekly lucky draw thic year for those going to this buffet, with prizes worth up to RM25,000 all for grabs. The buffet ends this coming 29th August 2011, and advance bookings via +6082418911 is highly encouraged. Told you its popular. =)
