Coffee House at Awana Hotel has long been renowned for its sumptuous buffet
spread, offering great variety and affordability — and for the coming Ramadan
season, this reality very much holds true.
The Ramadan buffet promotion at the coffee
house, valid from 27 May to 24 June 2017, features not only traditional Malay
fare but also dishes like Australian Roast Lamb and Ipoh Curry Mee. Popular
traditional dishes like Ayam Percik and Ikan Bakar are offered, mixing
comfortably with everyday favourites like Mushroom Soup and Char Kuay Teow.
Variety is indeed the spice of life at Rajawali—and to be able to enjoy it
amidst scenic views and refreshing mountain air makes the experience even more
Affordability is another plus point at the
coffee house: the buffet dinner, from 6pm to 9.30pm, is priced at RM100 nett
for adults, and RM50 nett for children below 12 and senior citizens above 60
years of age. There is also the Early Bird promotion where an adult only pays
RM80 nett per person.
Dawn-to-dusk fasting means food plays a big
role during the holy month of Ramadan; the body needs much nourishing after the
long hours of abstinence from food. The fast-breaking meal known as Iftar—a
daily ritual during Ramadan—traditionally features a menu that includes hearty
soups and stews, fruits, juices, milk, dates and water. Modern menus these
days, of course, would have more variety. And for those seeking quality and
variety amidst an air of festivity this Ramadan, Rajawali is an excellent
Meat and fish dishes are aplenty, as are
fragrant sweet meats and desserts that are a staple of a Ramadan meal. Main
dishes like Kambing Golek and Ayam Percik should be filling enough, but there
are also Gerai Satay offering chicken and mutton options along with Otak Otak,
and the Ikan Bakar counter offering all kinds of fish like Siakap, Kembung,
Ikan Keli and Ikan Tenggiri.
There is also Seafood Goreng: crab meat,
prawn, squid and fish ball that can be enjoyed with traditional Malay sauces
like Sambal Celup, Sambal Belacan, Budu, Cincaluk and Sambal Tempoyak.
Most people would begin their meal with a
soup—and the Rajawali speciality this time around is Sup Citarasa Awana (which
includes chicken slices and Roti Banggali) but no one would accuse you of being
unadventurous if you settle for Mushroom Soup or Tomyam Soup.
This being Malaysia, no buffet is complete
without Penang or Ipoh food—there are two counters offering these. The Penang
counter features must-have dishes like Nasi Kandar, Fish Head Curry, Kambing
Masala, Chicken Prathal, and Roti Canai. Chicken, lamb and beef options can
also be found.
Then there's the Ipoh counter offering Ipoh
Curry Mee, Char Kuay Teow and Sotong Kangkung—but also featured nearby are
Laksa Johor, Laksam Kuala Kedah, Mee Bandung, Mee Jawa, and Mee Rebus. More
traditional dishes come in the form of Aneka Ulam Ulaman, Aneka Kerabu, and
Tauhu Sumbat at the Cold Kitchen, but one can also enjoy five types of Genting
Garden Salad here.
Main dishes worth trying include Asam Pedas
Ikan Pari, Gulai Lemak Daging Salai, Rendang Tok, Patin Tempoyak, Sweet &
Sour Lala, and Japanese Taufu with Mushroom. For porridge lovers, Bubuk Lambuk
should be satisfying enough, while Arab Street is where diners can find
imported and local kurma—there are five to seven types of dates available at
any one time.
Fruits are aplenty, too, including local
favourites like ciku, langsat, manggis, kedondong, nangka, cempedak, and
rambutan. And the long list of sweets and desserts available should keep diners
with a sweet tooth happy. From Kuih Lapis to Bubur Kacang Hijau to Goreng
Pisang to Ais Batu Campur & Cendol, the intention is to satisfy every
craving—and how Rajawali delivers in this aspect!
By the time the diner decides to settle back
to enjoy their drink for the evening—Air Sirap Bandung, Air Sirap Selasih, Air
Asam Boi and Air Mata Kuching, among the options—they no doubt would agree that
it's been one wonderfully satisfying meal.
