The Return of ‘Kampung Classics’ This Ramadan!

The Centre’s crowd-pleasing ‘Kampung in the City’ private and public Ramadan offering returns! This year’s Ramadan menu features a host of ‘Kampung classics’ such as signature dishes nasi kerabu tulang rusuk kerutup bakar (butterfly-pea flower coloured rice with grilled beef ribs marinated in kerutup sauce), jantung pisang tumis pedas ikan tamban (spicy sardines stir-fried with banana flower), gulai ayam kampung bersama buah betik manis (farm chicken curry with sweet papaya) and nasi daging air asam utara (Northern-style rice with beef cooked in a tamarind sauce), to name a few.

Focusing on convenience, comfort and cuisine, the exclusive buka puasa menu options have been customised by the Centre’s award-winning 52-strong culinary team to offer diners the chance to enjoy traditional Kampung favourites and contemporary buka puasa fare served right in the heart of the Kuala Lumpur City Centre (KLCC).

The Centre also offers Ramadan guests a designated prayer room, prayer mats, sandals, on-site ablution facility and an Imam to lead Muslims in their Maghrib, Isya’ and Tarawih prayers, allowing guests to comfortably perform their religious observance responsibilities before breaking fast. With all five of the venue’s kitchens; Chinese, Western, Cold, Pastry and Malay, certified halal by the Department of Islamic Development Malaysia (JAKIM), Muslim guests will be able to enjoy their Ramadan meal with complete peace of mind.
 
Both the private and public buka puasa menus offer contemporary and international choices for diners looking for something a little different. Dishes include Pita Kebab Arab Daging Cincang (Arabic-style minced beef kebab on pita bread), roasted fish Tikka and Mediterranean Hickory-Smoked Lamb served with black pepper and mint sauce.
 
Guests can also look forward to the Centre’s 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, 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 jemput manis, cempedak and sukun fritters, keropok lekor and other deep-fried treats. Those looking for a sweet indulgence can finish the night off at the ‘Ice Cool’ station for Ais Batu Campur (ABC) served with an array of condiments and ice cream or delve into the sumptuous bandung crèmeux (rose-flavoured mousse), spiced mango cheesecake, pisang sira haruman cengkih (poached bananas infused with clove essence) local kuih, fresh fruits and many more.

The public buka puasa is priced at RM115 nett per person and is limited to 250 pax per evening, so make sure to book early to avoid disappointment.
