Ramadan Buffet 2019 @ Mandarin Oriental KL: Royal Cuisine of Pahang

Dine like royalty this Ramadan at Mandarin Oriental, Kuala Lumpur as you break fast to an amazing spread featuring the Royal Cuisine of Pahang.

With the permission of Her Majesty Seri Paduka Baginda The Raja Permaisuri Agong Tunku Hajah Azizah Aminah Maimunah Iskandariah Binti Almarhum Al-Mutawakkil Alallah Sultan Iskandar Al-Haj, The Queen of Malaysia, Mandarin Oriental, Kuala Lumpur proudly presents Royal Cuisine of Pahang featuring recipes from Her Majesty’s cookbook ‘Air Tangan Tengku Puan Pahang Masakan Tradisional Pahang’ at Mosaic and Diamond Ballroom from 13 May to 4 June 2019. Commencing the Holy Month of Ramadan from 6 to 12 May will be an array of local buka puasa delights prepared by Mosaic’s culinary maestros.

When preparing for her cookbook, Her Majesty, fondly known as Tengku Puan Pahang, spent countless hours travelling to villages in her resident state Pahang; one of the 14 states in Malaysia, to seek traditional food recipes from the womenfolk. Known for her skills in culinary, Tengku Puan Pahang is passionate about preserving the local food heritage and believed that it is important for the future generation of Malaysia to know the various cuisines of the country.

Humbled by Tengku Puan Pahang’s noble effort in upholding the local cuisine, Chef Saiful Asrul Bin Saidin and team were moved when they were given an exclusive opportunity to work with Her Majesty and the Royal kitchen in conjunction with the launch of the cookbook last year in Mandarin Oriental. With continued enthusiasm and the support of the Royal kitchen, Chef Saiful and team will be treating Malaysians to a grand showcase of traditional dishes of the country infused with a selection of Pahang cuisine.
