So what if you can’t travel all the way to Malaysia for a vacation? You can at least feel like it in Alwarpet. What? How? When?! Well, The Raintree hotel in association with the Tourism Malaysia is hosting a 17 day Malaysian Food festival at Colony restaurant from 22nd April to 8th May 2016. This festival will feature a friendly and talented Chef named Asri who will whip up some amazing food for us all the way from Malaysia.
When I was invited by the Raintree hotel for a sit down buffet session with the Chef himself, I was absolutely nervous since I was clueless about Malaysian food. I thought all they were famous was for their Biryani. BUT I WAS SO WRONG! They are much more than that…seriously!
The ‘Malaysian food festival’ special buffet will feature a LOT of new Malaysian dishes along with the regular dishes and are exclusively priced at Rs. 1450 (plus taxes) without Alcohol and Rs. 1850 ( plus taxes) with Alcohol per person.
We tasted a few dishes from the buffet. It’s definitely an acquired taste and has a strong resemblance to namba south Indian food. If you are open to trying new flavours or if you already are a Malaysian food Fanatic, You will NOT be disappointed.
1. Live counter – Banana Pancakes
2. Starter – Tofu Sambal
3. Salad – Kerabu Taugeh
4. Main course – Aubergine
Coming to my favourite part of the meal ;
5. Kuih Lapis
6. Babur Pulut Hitam
7. Kuih Katayab
So That’s it Folks! That’s some of the signature dishes of Chef Asri which will be a part of the Malaysian Food festival . Do visit this place before 8th May, 2016 if you don’t mind splurging for some authentic ‘truly asian’ food!
