Review: Indulge In Local Favourites At Nook, Aloft KL This Ramadhan

Ramadhan’s rolling right around the corner and Nook at Aloft KL Sentral is offering a scrumptious spread of traditional Ramadhan favourites at its live action stations in addition to its buffet spread of local and international cuisine for diners to break fast during dinner.

With Nook’s kitchen recently certified Halal, the culinary team will be cooking up over 150 dishes to be dished out at the buffet for diners to enjoy this Ramadan. Created by Nook’s Sous Chef Ahmed Zaki bin Harun, the A-List buffet will feature these dishes on a rotational basis daily allowing guests to enjoy a variety of dishes for Ramadan.

This year’s buffet line are highlighted by the Nasi Ayam, Nasi Lemak and our personal favourite, the super tender and fragrant Nasi Kambing Sumbat. Patrons can also expect the Bubur Lambuk, the ultimate Ramadhan favourite, and a special drinks stall with ever popular local favourites like Air Bandung, Calamansi, Teh Tarik, Nescaffe Tarik, Sugar Cane juice, Soy Bean milk, Date juice and more.

The Slow Braised Beef Shin Rendang takes centre stage on the buffet line at Nook’s Carving Station. The rendang dish has been slow cooked for over 7 hours and seasoned generously with traditional Asian spices, making this a succulent treat for diners during the Ramadhan buffet.

Of course, no Ramadhan buffet is complete without curries and other local fares such as Ayam Percik, Ayam Masak Merah, Gulai Kambing, Gulai Itik, Crab Curry and Fish Head Curry. The Ayam Masak Merah has always been a childhood favourite of ours thus we were glad that it was well executed at Nook. The Crab Curry adds a rich and indulgent touch to the array of curries available.

Adding variety and colours to the buffet are dishes from Chinese, Indian and Western cuisines. Take your pick from Wok-friend Teriyaki Char Siew Chicken Fillet with Green Leek, Steamed Whole Sea Bass, Lamb Pot Pie, Seafood Mousaka and even Sarawak Laksa!

For dessert, indulge in an array of local favourites such as Dodol, Kuih Bahulu, ABC with Pulut Durian and an assortment of kuehs. The spread will also include Salted Caramel Brownies Slices, Marble Cheesecake Slices, Sago Gula Melaka as well as Hot Almond Cream with Roasted Almond Flakes amongst an array of sweet sensations to seal the deal.

Nook’s A-List Ramadhan Buffet is priced at RM135 nett per adult and is served daily from 29 May – 25 June 2017 for dinner from 6.30pm to 10.30pm. If you’re looking to book a spot at Nook’s Ramadhan Buffet, early bird vouchers are available at RM100 nett per voucher and at RM90 nett per voucher for purchases of 36 vouchers and more until 28 May 2017. For more information on Aloft KL Sentral, access here.
