BUKA PUASA WITH SOUTH-EAST ASIAN CLASSICS AT EQ’S NIPAH
Kam Eat With Me – To mark the holy month of Ramadan, EQ’s Citarasa Nipah has a dizzying selection for Buka Puasa, extending the hospitality to include dishes from the neighbouring South-East Asian region too. Executive chef Hafizzul Hashim revealed his prowess at cooking up an amazing range that one would be hard-pressed to say ‘Can’t find what I like’. The buffet spread has a decidedly home feel to the dishes as you feel you’ve been invited to someone’s home rather than a commercial establishment.
SOUTH-EAST ASIAN FLAVOURS ON THE SPREAD
The Star – Malaysia is a melting pot of cultures and traditions, and nowhere is this more apparent than in our food. Arab, Indian, Chinese, Thai and Javanese are just a few of the influences that make Malaysian food truly unique. Diners can now experience a variety of dishes at Nipah in EQ Kuala Lumpur, where a diverse buffet spread of over 100 delectable traditional Malay and South-East Asian dishes await.
Executive chef Hafizzul Hashim said Citarasa Nipah highlights the many aspects of Malaysian cuisine as well as those around the region. “Our Citarasa Nipah menu consists of Cambodian, Thai, Indonesian, Peranakan and Laotian influences, which all go well with our staple dish — rice.”
