It may seem only yesterday that you were busy buying food items from the pasar Ramadan near your hourse. Due to the many choices available, you cannot possibly finish everything in one night.
Ramadan is also a month for buffet spreads, where restaurants compete to give customers the widest possible array for food to satisfy appetites.
If you love buffet, head to the Penang Village Restaurant at Taman Tun Dr Ismail.
Reservations are important as the restaurant expects a full house daily. After all, the buffet, is priced at only RM19.90+ a person. It features more than 30 dishes.
Connie Su, one of the owners, said the response was tremendous last year. So, Penang Village Restaurant is offering a similar buffet this year.
There will be five rotating menus, prepared by another co-owner Tang Chun Gee. He cooks the dishes and supervises the kitchen team to ensure quality.
"I also do rounds at other restaurants (in Subang Jaya and Desa Sri Hartamas) to make sure that the quality of the dishes remains high," he said. The quality that Tang spoke of is reflected greatly in the dishes.
They are delicious, with a sharp taste that will satisfy even choosy diners. For appertisers, try the pomelo with baby crab salad which has a refreshing taste. The pomelo complements the taste of the deep-fried baby crab. The crab is delicious, and you can eat them whole.
If you have a weakness for mango salad, then, don't miss the crispy soft shell crab with kerabu sauce. The crispy crab is served with sliced green mangoes, chilli and onions, with sprinkled dried shrimps. All yummy!
Children will love the mantis prawn meat with dried chillies cashew nuts. Sweet and tender, it can be eaten with rice or on its own.
