Enjoy Breaking Your Fast with the Wide Selections at Citarasa Nipah, EQ Kuala Lumpur

The month of Ramadan is finally here and I'm sure many of us are delighted since Raya is less than a month now. Aside from that, there's plenty of special menu offerings for breaking fast and one of them comes from EQ Kuala Lumpur.

The renowned Malay Chef Muhammad Hajral Lisarni of EQ will be your guide to Nipah's traditional Malay cuisine during the holy month of Ramadan. To evoke pleasant memories of passionate slow cooking and the joy of dining with friends and family, Chef Hajral has designed a magnificent array of perennial flavours that adhere to traditional Malay cuisine preparation techniques. This year's buffet at Citarasa Nipah will provide both classic and cutting-edge versions of Malaysian favourites.

One of the most emblematic dishes of Malaysian cuisine, EQ's signature satay, will also be featured prominently. The carvery features kambing golek as an additional meat option (roasted whole lamb).

One of my favourite is their roasted duck. The meat is flavourful and tender, definitely a must try!

 Chef Hajral’s signature Nasi Beriani Kambing Batu Pahat, which will be served with nasi beriani and vegetable dhal, also features lamb as a main ingredient.

The other foods in the reserve will be dishes like Gulai Lemak Cili Padi Daging Salai, Sambal Tumis Udang Harimau, Ayam Goreng Mamu, Tulang Rawan Gulai Kawah, Kerabu Daging, and Popia Basah Ala Nipah. Lompat Tikam Sago and Som Som Gula Melaka, a sweet local dessert, will be featured.

Chef Hajral maintains that native Malaysians will always miss the authentic tastes of their home, despite the prevalence of modern, simplified versions of some classic Malay dishes. 

For this spread, the recipes have been used for decades and handed down from a bygone era, before the invention of time-saving kitchen appliances. 

Chef Hajral explains that the secret to the success of these recipes is that they were passed down from generations of women who spent hours slaving over the stove to achieve the coveted "trifecta" of tenderness, richness, and consistency.

Making a resplendent return, Citarasa Nipah now offers a widest variety of delicious kerabu (local salad) prepared by Chef de Partie Saadiah, another fan-favorite from last year! Chef Saadiah is a kerabu expert who has modernised our humble yet traditional kerabu and elevating it to new gastronomic heights that are bound to tickle even the most discerning palates. She promises that each day there will be a good amount of sampling of the 41 different kerabu; no two days will ever be alike. She whips up special sauces, flavoured with aromatic oil and sambal belacan that is certain to get us hooked yet again. 

Usual favourites like freshly shucked oysters, mussels, tiger prawns, baby scallops, and more will be among the fresh seafood on ice. Take my words for it, these seafood are fresh and delicious!

A wide variety of dessert choices are showcased at Citarasa Nipah, EQ.

The tiramisu is cake is my top favourite. Although it didn't contain any alcohol, it's still very very good!

Rojak buah anyone?

 Local fruits are also available for guest.
