All the winners. Congrats to you all and nice to have met you :)

After the prize giving ceremony, we were treated to the Ramadan Buka Puasa buffet in the Grand Selangor Ballroom. With over 100 home-cooked local favourites, hawker fare, Oriental delights as well as Western food, we were spoilt for choice.

The sup campur was my favorite of the evening. Hearty and delicious, this soup was packed full of beefy goodness. I helped myself to as much meat/tripe/liver as I liked, sprinkled some daun sup, chilli soy sauce and bawang goreng (fried shallots) and voila... a soup you'd wanna keep eating.




Check out this bad boy... the sup gearbox, also known as bone marrow soup. Why the name? I guess the bone marrow resembles the car's gearbox in some ways. You have to be early to be able to get your hands on one of these since they get snapped up very quickly by the diners. They all know a good thing when they see one! I got to witness one of our fellow diners suck out the bone marrow (the best bit!) out of the girgantum bone! So remember, if you wanna get your hands on one, be early.



Lamb.... how can one resist this at a Ramadan buffet. One of the most popular food station in this Ramadan buffet, it comes as no surprise since the meat was tender and flavoursome. I think I saw a total of 3 whole lambs being served that evening. What a lotta meat!

I was amazed when I saw the size of the grilled ikan merah and siakap on offer.. they must have been at least 1/2 metre long. There is also ikan bakar and satay available here.

Satay and popiah.. yummy!

We tried out a huge range of food here... I liked the rusuk kambing vindaloo, a dry lamb/mutton curry. The roast beef was also nice, I managed to get some medium cooked bits and it was delicious. We also enjoyed the chicken shawarma, an Arabic wrap of shaved chicken and a mixture of vegetables such as onion, cucumber and tomato. The pasta and Japanese tempura station seemed to be very popular with the diners.

And end the meal with some sweet desserts such as kuih koci, mango pudding, tapai, and an assortment of cakes. Fresh fruits is also available with interesting varieties such as mata kucing and pulasan (similar to rambutan).
