Renaissance TEMPTations Ramadan Buffet 2018

 

Being a multiracial country also means having the unique privilege of plenty of delicious selection of Chinese and Indian cuisine as well. We have Executive Chef Supi Mansor curating a buffet feast to please every palate of our diverse culture and tradition in culinary. Starting 16 May to 14 June 2018, Renaissance Kuala Lumpur celebrates the Ramadan Buka Puasa buffet this year with the very authentic Malaysian favourites. Priced at RM 138 nett per person and half price for children between 6 to 12 years old, we are looking at Malay classics like sambal sotong petai, ayam percik, kerabu and sup tulang rawan. Of course, the must have bubur lambuk, as well as the daily roasted whole lamb.

Some traditional favourites for the breaking of fast is definitely a must have and along with the lively ambience of this dining experience is where food authenticity in the buffet preparations were greatly emphasised on. The mandatory Bubur Lambuk, and some amazing starters like Sup Tulang Rawan and mains like the Kari Kambing dengan Ubi kentang and Ayam Percik already giving the festive vibe inevitably. And that daily Roasted whole lamb with some other live stations cooking your noodles and grilling the Satays were some of the favourites at the preview of the Ramadhan buffet.

How to style and snack on healthier desserts -Alternative snacking with nuts made interesting with some nice cream!

 

We’ve all heard of how nuts are supposedly a healthier alternative to snacking junk food but we are also at the same time aware of how they can be dull and a little boring at times. What we don’t know is that nuts can be a satisfying snack given their high contained nutrients such as vitamin E, magnesium, and potassium. At the same time also loaded with important macro nutrient like protein. I really don’t want to jump into all the science talk but keeping things in short, I am sharing what I have been snacking on every now and then.

Eating raw is best when it comes to most of the food but let’s admit it. We love that little spark in life and that extra indulgence when it comes to food. I still enjoy that extra indulgence when it comes to food. But having a job like mine requires intense discipline when it comes to food intake. And that’s why I still indulge when it comes to snacking. I pair them with a little bit of nice cream and some goodness of fruits.

Ingredients for nice cream: 1 frozen banana, 2 Tbs almond milk, pinch of seasalt.
Toppings: Amazing Graze Zesty Maple Glazed Nut Mix

Cherry Smoothie

 

Smoothie bowl is now more than just a new favourite or some might have labeled it as an obsession for me but they are actually not just a favourite breakfast or dessert- they’ve officially became a creative outlet much like a canvas to paint my kinda art. I mean the fun to design the top of the bowl is satisfying and really getting my artistic brain cells working hard. I mostly put in a lot of thought from my styling and plating and it is no doubt that desserts and sweet food makes the prettiest appearance. So, the gorgeous toppings aside. The base are the ones that’s really challenging because it is what determines the taste, texture, colour, and most importantly nutritious.

 

Speaking of nutrients, I made a cherry-based smoothie bowl when cherries were in season some time ago. Cherries are known to be loaded with antioxidants and polyphenols that help fight disease, on top of the rich vitamin C and fiber. Being a natural food source of melatonin, which can help to improve sleep, cherries are all rounded essentially good for us. Though, I wouldn’t recommend excessive consumption because they are also fairly high in sugar. Those who followed me through my journey on Instagram would also know that I recommend moderate intakes on top of matching ingredients in all my bowls.

 

Cherry Smoothie Bowl

 

Here is a good tip to mellow the sweet in your smoothie bowls. Use bananas that are slightly under ripe and include some oats for a thicker consistency. Not only that would help with the taste, the oats would give the extra fill to last longer throughout the morning.

 

Enjoy this cherry bowl recipe. And even though I didn’t decorate them much yet when the photos are taken, I include the recommended toppings so maybe you all can try decorating yours and tag me on Instagram?

 

INGREDIENTS
• 2 cups of frozen cherries, pitted
• 1 frozen banana
• 2 Tbs oats
• ¼ cup coconut water

 

Blend everything as smoothie base.

 

Topping
• Bukinis
• Assorted nuts
• Chia seed
• Cherry
• Banana
• Blueberries

Down to Bones @ OUG , Taman Overseas Union

Down to Bones @ OUG , Taman Overseas Union

 

Not a place for first dates and definitely not for white shirts cause things are way better digging with hands if you asked me. Down to bones (DTB) at OUG has always been that to go on my rib tearing and polishing list of ferocious pork rib stop. It can be a messy feed but plan ahead and be rewarded because the menu have developed a cult following amongst meat lover since the days from when their pop up store operates on weekends two years back. Plenty of lip smacking and finger licking going on. Salivation will be impossible to stop with the sticky rich coat over tender moist meat. Yet, there is more than just rib at this now-operating-at-a shop neighborhood eatery. Go for the comforting butter garlic sauce with pork chunks and this Butter sauce Spaghetti (RM 16) was nicely cooked and perfectly topped with a gorgeous boiled egg. And when indecisive of either Hot Wings or Honey Soy wings, there is the half and half option so greedy people like me can taste the both.

The star-status dish is DTB’s tender, two stick slow-cooked Pork Ribs (RM 23) in DTB sauce – they require just the right amount of tug to pull the meat clean from the bone. These beauties take their name in pride with the treasure coming with sticky saucy goodness. So get ready to roll up your sleeves and pile a tray with meat that falls off the bone. Forget about what comes accompanying the ribs because both the mash and coleslaw looked and tasted trashy next to the glorious meat. Called me old fashion but some old faithful pairing of rib and fries would be a superb experience here. That missing kick is compensated by a good icy cold beer which by the way is probably the best thing to order from their ridiculously tiny beverage menu. It is either that or bottled water.

Choices of food are old fashioned in general but classic pig is what it is. The sides and add ons are heavy and perhaps too fatty when paired with all the rib and creamy pasta but the only thing that appeared light and easy wasn’t flattering either. Coleslaw was especially thick and soaked in the rich dressing I can hardly taste the cabbage. Pork Soup reminds me of water brought to boiled to cook the many, many ribs which conveniently then turned into and served as soup. Not something I would recommend ordering.

The location hasn’t changed. Only now they are in a shop and if you are powerless to resist the smoke and oil from the stove, take the outdoor seats.
