Ramadan is a special month of the Islamic calendar, where Muslims around the world engage in spiritual reflection, prayer, and fasting during daylight hours. It is also a time when families and friends gather to break their fast together, and to indulge in the rich and diverse culinary traditions of their culture.
In Malaysia, Ramadan is a particularly festive time, with bazaars selling delicious street food and local delicacies, and hotels and restaurants offering lavish buffet spreads that celebrate the country’s rich cultural heritage. One such place is the Grand Millenium Kuala Lumpur, which has long been a go-to destination for Ramadan feasting.
The hotel’s culinary team has worked tirelessly to recreate the authentic flavors of traditional Malaysian cuisine, drawing on their own childhood memories of their mothers’ cooking. Their aim is to foster an emotional connection with their diners through convivial dining, where they can share in the joy and nostalgia of festive family meals.
One of the standout dishes at Grand Millenium Kuala Lumpur’s Warisan Bonda Ramadan buffet is the Ayam Bakar Tempayan, which is marinated in a rich blend of herbs and spices and grilled to perfection in a traditional clay pot. The dish is succulent, juicy, and bursting with flavor, making it a must-try for all foodies
