it’s norm to berbuka puasa with Ramadhan buffet. but what if you wanna try something different? like Chinese food!

Huang Di Restaurant of A’Famosa Resort offers just that during this holy Ramadhan month. at only RM 417 (10 person) you’ll get to savour a 11-course Chinese dinner set, per head is only around RM 40. they also cater for a smaller group of 6 person at RM 277 (9-course).

we sampled a few dishes from all four dinner sets available.

Chinese A Famosa05
Lemon Syrup/ Air Sirap Limau

air sirup being served in Chinese restaurant, my first encounter. well, why not? it’s Ramadhan month!

Chinese A Famosa03
Four Seasonal Hot and Cold Combinations/ Empat Hidangan Combo
Chinese A Famosa04
Four Seasonal Hot and Cold Combinations/ Empat Hidangan Combo

love everything on this platter especially the squid.

Chinese A Famosa11
Double Boiled Assorted Seafood with Bean Curd Soup/ Sup Hidangan Laut Berserta Taufu

soup was unfortunately too starchy to my liking.

Chinese A Famosa06
Sweet and Sour Chicken/ Ayam Masak Masam Manis

the gravy will go so well with rice.

Chinese A Famosa07
Steamed Jenak Fish with Lemon Sauce/ Ikan Kukus Beserta Sos Limau

steamed fish ala Malay’s style. the lemon juice added tangy taste to it, which is something new to me. likey how the chef tweaks the Chinese dishes to suit Malay’s palate.

Chinese A Famosa08
Claypot Asam Pedas Red Fish Head/ Asam Pedas Kepala Ikan “Claypot”

this is another dish that you’d inundate rice with its gravy.

Chinese A Famosa09
Baked Prawns with Spicy Chili Sauce/ Udang Bakar Beserta Sos Cili
Chinese A Famosa12
Stir-fried Broccoli topped with Crab Meat Sauce/ Brokoli Masak Sos Ketam

they’re pretty generous with the ingredients used.

Chinese A Famosa10
Malay Style Cake and Palm Fruit/ Kuih-muih dan Buah Kurma

not forgetting the staple of Ramadhan month!

Chinese A Famosa13
Fresh Seasonal Fruits Platter/ Buah-buahan Segar

all in all, there’s more hit than miss in this spread of food. would definitely recommend to Malay friends who’d love to have a change in their usual iftar meal 😉
