Asian Street Food Promotion @ Eccucino, Prince Hotel KL

Eccucino, the all-day dining restaurant at Prince Hotel & Residence Kuala Lumpur is featuring an ‘Asian Street Food’ buffet dinner until the end of April 2013. The buffet brings together different Asian street food into one venue and aims to share the vibrant food culture from around Southeast Asia, a region known for its tasty and adventurous flavours in food. Eccucino Chef de Cuisine Jason Manson and his team has put together a spread featuring a wide selection of Malaysian street food, as well as from countries in this region such as Singapore, Thailand, Indonesia, Japan, India and Philippines amongst others.

The menu rotates daily, with selections such as Penang's Oh Chien (fried oysters), Thailand's pad thai, Balinese satays and more. We managed to try some of the local specialities such as chicken rice, curry laksa, roti canai and the grill corner (satays, grilled king prawns and grilled fish). The chicken rice is a popular Malaysian dish, simple, familiar and delicious dish which the kids enjoyed very much. I like the curry laksa (pretty decent broth) and the grilled counters too especially the grilled prawns and grilled fish wrapped in banana leaf. Hubby's favorite was the lamb vindaloo which he kept going back for more.

As for desserts, choose from a variety of French pastries or Asian desserts such as Thai sticky rice with mango, apam balik, sago gula melaka, kuih-muih, luk chup, and tau fu fah. Kids went straight for the Malay kuihs and ice cream!
