Buka Puasa 2020 @ Armada Hotel, PJ

How are you guys doing in this quarantine period? Hope everyone is staying home, healthy and sane! Haha

Well, hopefully this Covid pandemic will end soon in time for the month of Ramadhan. This Ramadan, inspired by the homely taste of Malay ‘kampung’ comfort food, Utara Restaurant at Hotel Armada Petaling Jaya invites you to feast on mouth-watering classic traditional Malay favourites.

The aptly themed “Citarasa Kampungku” Ramadan Buffet will see an approximate 100 dishes on offer, whipped up by Executive Chef, Chew Teik Chye and Sous Chef, Alifah Binti Kandar also affectionately known as Chef Mommy. The tantalizing spread will feature a mixture of local, Japanese and Western specialties that is bound to satisfy your palate after a long day of fasting.

Memories of your kampung favourites will come flooding back as you embark on your gastronomic journey with an appetizing assortment of flavours that are rarely on offer at urban diners. I must say, I never miss a Ramadhan review from Utara, Armada because they truly serve delicious spread of authentic Malay food.

For Kerabu fans, expect an assortment of kerabus, each tasting even better than the next. This appetizing starter includes Kerabu Mangga, Kerabu Nenas, Kerabu Kaki Ayam and Kerabu Udang.

Nasi Ulam.
The herbs was very aromatic.

Continue down memory lane with lip-smacking mains that have become Hotel Armada’s Ramadhan signature classics such as Laksa Thai, Bubur Lambuk, Sambal Udang Petai, Ketam Masak Gulai Siam, Ayam Berempah, Ikan Pari Masak Asam Pedas (Kawah), Daging Masak Hitam, Paru-paru Goreng Berlada, Rendang Itik, Sup Tulang Rusuk, Ikan Sembilang Panggang, Pucku Paku Goreng Belacan and the all-time favourite Siput Sedut Masak Cili Padi.

Laksa Thai.
The spicy, savoury, creamy soup was delicious as always. A must try in this Ramadhan buffet.

Ketam Masak Gulai Siam.
I always always look forward to this dish for obvious reasons haha. Crab is my favourite food but the spicy gravy made it even more yummy. My favourite!

Daging Masak Hitam. 
This was also a fan's favourite. The beef was soft and flavourful.

Ayam Berempah. This is comfort food!

Sotong Masak Lemak Cili Api. 
Anything seafood with masak lemak cili api will go straight to my tummy! The squid was soft and tender and easily eaten.

Udang Sambal Petai.
Fresh prawns with sweet spicy taste!

Pucuk Paku Goreng Belacan.
It's been a loong time since I've eaten Pucuk Paku. Another fan favourite. First dish to wipe off during our review hahaha

Nasi Briyani for carbs lovers.

Paru Goreng Berlada.
Oh my, another dish which I have not eaten since ages ago. This buffet spread really bring back fond memories.

Ikan Pari Masak Asam Pedas.
Another signature dish!

Sup Tulang Rawan.
What's Ramadhan without sup tulang?

For jeruk lovers, you are not left out!

Diners can also enjoy favorites prepared ala-minute like Apam Balik, Roasted Lamb, Assorted Satay, Roti Durian and loads more at the stalls set up around the Bakar-Bakar area.

Complete your meal on a sweet note with desserts that include traditional Malay Kuih, French pastries and tempting sweet delicacies such as Pengat Nangka with Sago, Ais Cendol with Pulut, Bubur Gandum and Bubur Kacang Hijau. Wash it all down with local drinks Air Bandung, Air Sirap Selaseh or Teh Tarik.

Dessert time!!

Pengat Nangka Sago. 
A bit too sweet for me.

Ais Cendol Pulut which has a balance of creaminess and sweetness.
