New Straits Times - - News - And other deep­fried

THE Kuala Lumpur Con­ven­tion Cen­tre’s crowd-pleas­ing ‘Kam­pung in the City’ cor­po­rate and pub­lic Ra­madan of­fer­ing re­turns this year. The Ra­madan menu fea­tures a host of ‘Kam­pung Clas­sics’, such as sig­na­ture dishes Nasi Ker­abu and grilled beef ribs mar­i­nated in kerutup sauce, farm chicken curry with sweet pa­paya and North­ern-style rice with beef cooked in a tamarind sauce, to name a few.

Its general man­ager Alan Pryor said they aim to al­ways de­liver a unique all-in­clu­sive Ra­madan ex­pe­ri­ence in one of Kuala Lumpur’s most iconic lo­ca­tions.

“The din­ers can be as­sured of world-class ser­vice and five-star cui­sine. To de­liver even more value to guests, we have re­tained our 2015 price point for this year’s of­fer­ing.”

Fo­cus­ing on con­ve­nience, com­fort and cui­sine, the mouth-wa­ter­ing Ra­madan of­fer­ing has been cus­tomised by the cen­tre’s award-win­ning 52-strong culi­nary team to of­fer din­ers the chance to ex­pe­ri­ence au­then­tic kam­pung favourites and con­tem­po­rary buka puasa fare served right in the heart of the Kuala Lumpur City Cen­tre (KLCC).

The con­ven­tion cen­tre fea­tures five kitchens in­clud­ing Chi­nese, West­ern, Cold, Pas­try and Malay.

The kitchens are cer­ti­fied ha­lal by the Is­lamic De­vel­op­ment Malaysia Depart­ment (Jakim) so Mus­lim guests will be able to en­joy their meal with com­plete peace of mind.

“Our af­ford­able cor­po­rate buka puasa ban­quets are on of­fer for 100 pax or above. It will be avail­able daily through­out Ra­madan, from RM115 nett per per­son,” said Pryor.

With two cus­tomis­able menu choices - the de­lec­ta­ble Ra­madan Al-Mubarak and the ex­quis­ite Ra­madan Al-Ka­reem - clients have the op­tion to per­son­alise each spread with var­i­ous ‘Chef Ac­tion Sta­tion’ add-ons.

Pryor said the pub­lic ban­quets were also very well priced at RM115nett per per­son and were avail­able for book­ings be­tween June 5 and June 20. There is a limit of 250 pax per evening and pa­trons are ad­vised to book early to avoid dis­ap­point­ment.

Mean­while, the con­ven­tion cen­tre ex­ec­u­tive chef, Hisham Jaa­far said to truly en­cap­su­late the essence of kam­pung cook­ing in this year’s Ra­madan of­fer­ing, the cen­tre’s cre­ative culi­nary team have in­fused their own tra­di­tional home­in­spired flavours into ev­ery dish served.

In ad­di­tion to the host of ‘Kam­pung Clas­sics’, both the cor­po­rate and pub­lic menus of­fer con­tem­po­rary and in­ter­na­tional choices for din­ers.

Dishes in­clude Ara­bic-style minced beef ke­bab on pita bread, roasted fish Tikka and Mediter­ranean Hick­ory-Smoked Lamb served with black pep­per and mint sauce.

Hisham said guests can also look for­ward to the lively ‘Chef Ac­tion Sta­tions’, where lo­cal favourites such as Pe­nang char kuey teow and Hainanese chicken rice will be pre­pared à la minute.

In ad­di­tion, guests can en­joy chicken and beef sa­tay, whole­some bubur lam­buk and the sta­ple of all Hari Raya gath­er­ings in­clud­ing suc­cu­lently-spiced ren­dang tok com­plete with nasi impit, ke­tu­pat and le­mang.”

“A tra­di­tional Ra­madan feast would not be com­plete with­out the ‘Goreng-goren­gan’ sta­tion, where din­ers can en­joy and treats,” he said.

“Those look­ing for a sweet in­dul­gence can fin­ish the night off at the ‘Ice Cool’ sta­tion for Air Batu Cam­pur (ABC) served with an ar­ray of condi­ments and ice cream or delve into the sump­tu­ous rose-flavoured mousse, spiced mango cheese­cake, poached bananas in­fused with clove essence, lo­cal kuih, fresh fruits and many more,” he said.

The cen­tre also of­fers Ra­madan pa­trons a des­ig­nated prayer room, prayer mats, san­dals, on-site ablu­tion fa­cil­ity and an Imam to lead Mus­lims in their Maghrib, Isyak and Tarawih prayers.

With this, the pa­trons will com­fort­ably per­form their re­li­gious re­spon­si­bil­i­ties be­fore break­ing fast.
