Happy meal for the lamb lover

WITH 38 different styles of lamb dishes, the Ramadan buffet at Sedap Restaurant in Pullman KLCC, is something not to be missed.

Lamb lovers are in for a treat as dishes like lamb cooked with basil leaves, lamb briyani, lamb rendang and lamb cooked with kesum leaves are on the menu.

Grilled lamb with a range of dipping sauces is also available.

Sedap Kitchen junior sous chef Syamsyul Azhar Mat Aris said lamb dishes were popular during Ramadan.

“Diners can experience an exciting culinary journey tasting different lamb dishes,” he said.

About 200 authentic and fusion local dishes are on the buffet.

The Nasi Tumpang served with Cod Fish Tempoyak, Spiced Boxing Chicken and Grilled Pigeon Percik is a must-try.

The Nasi Tumpang comprises pandan rice that comes with anchovies, peanuts and omelette wrapped into a cone.

“The pandan rice is arranged layer by layer with the ingredients inside.

“When diners tuck in, the rice will fall apart with all the ingredients in the mix.

“Using cod fish for the tempoyak is something different,” he said.

The aromatic rice really whet my appetite and it was quite filling.

The cod, a substitute for the traditional patin in the tempoyak, was something extraordinary as it offered a softer and more flaky flesh.

The chicken was grilled to perfection while the fragrant cured quail in turmeric coconut paste was delicious.

Most of the lamb dishes are cooked curry or rendang style and are not too spicy.

The live stations also have a variety of meat and seafood.
