A Preview - Iftar Ramadhan Al Mubarak At Silka Maytower

Imagine spending hours on your feet along Jalan Tunku Abdul Rahman (Jalan TAR), Jalan Masjid India, Jalan Bunus and the surrounding area during the fasting month for your Raya shopping. And after all that hard "workout", wouldn't it be nice to sit back and enjoy a delicious, affordably priced buffet in comfort? 
That's what came to my mind when we arrived to Silka Hotel Maytower for a preview of their Ramadhan Iftar buffet promotion. Having Jakel right across the street of this hotel doesn't hurt either. Hahaha
What Silka Hotel offers for their iftar/buka puasa are a delightful spread of familiar, kampong dishes. Good 'ol kampung stuff.

I was informed the signatures dishes will be rotated on daily basis and the highlight at Silka Maytower, according to the General Manager, Mr Henry Loo are the asam pedas spread.
Ooooh, the asam pedas batang keladi sure bring back memories of sahur (pre-dawn meal) of my childhood.
Good thing my boys were free to accompany me for the preview that evening. Much more convenient when the big boy can drive me over to the hotel too! Hehehe

Some of our personal favourites, from the spread that evening...
 Daging masak lemak - the non-cili padi version though. ;-)
 Keli masak berlada.
From the grill section - nasi arab (actually forgot the name lah...), kambing golek and sup tulang. That's hubby's plate, right there.
Sambal udang petai is my fave!!!
So is the mussels too. ^^

Fom the grill section :
Roti John in the making. There were murtabaks too. A "whole" kambing was being grilled behind the chef. Couldn't get a decent shot of it.
The usual suspects - satay.
Mee bandung from the noodle section.
Lemang, ketupat, rendang and serunding. Feeling rather festive and "Raya"-like, aren't we? hehehe
At the desserts section, there were an assortments of local kueh and pengat too. My fave - pengat labu. Son had pengat pisang. Yum yum.
And they happen to have my fave fruits too!

If only Silka Maytower served durians, I would be 200% happy. LOL

But all in all, a good buffet spread and we had  and enjoyed a good meal. ^^

    1. Lucky la this time, summore I'm not hot shot food blogger pulak tu. :P

  2. adui, early in the morning you let me see all these delicious food!!

    haven't have my breakfast yet dei~~


  3. Saw my favourite prawns and satay!!!

  4. asam fish.....i like.

    Think will choose the Cheras one. Cheaper leh...

    but but the one in KL have 50% discount leh for the first and last 5 days.... looks like better make reservation fast

    1. Yalor. Go reserve fast if you wanna try. ;)

  5. Wah got preview some more. Everything looks really good! So fast Ramadhan coming already.

    1. Ya, coming soon.
      Only 3 weeks plus to go. :)

  6. Popping in to say hi after ... 71 years? :) Then almost fell off my chair when I saw the word Ramadan. Already? o.0
    PS: Say hello and xxx to the boys.

    1. It's an advance warning that Ramadan is approaching.

      Relax, woman. We still have about 3 weeks before the start of the holy month. ;)

  7. Hello Lina,
    Time flies very fast and ramadhan is on its way. As for us in sarawak..we are now busy shopping for gawai.
    Whenever there's a ramadhan buffet..i usually join tje crowd at least once.
    Till then....have a nice day k?

  8. I haven't tasted any of the food out there, but they looked very delicious to me. Maybe I can google those recipes:)

  9. Oh my stomachhhhhhhhh Lina you are just so cruel in a lovable kind of way hehehehe as i read through this blog and looking at each delicious dish, my stomach started growling and i just had dinner an hour ago. Everything is lemak-ly sedap! Steady jugak sampai ada preview this hotel eh..i saw Jakel Mall on my way back yesterday from Setiawangsa, , must be new because ive not seen that before. RIGHTO, this i shall have to twist my friend's arm to make a trip to this hotel for the berbuka.

  10. That's a pretty reasonable price for a buka puasa meal in such a lovely place.

  11. Yummy food!! But can't go buffet anymore nowadays. Cant and refuse to eat so much LOL!

  12. Omg! Everything is so yummy, I love pengat labu, mee bandung, rendang, ketupat and all.

  13. I would be a happy bunny if I can find a Ramadhan bazaar here, let alone a buka puasa buffet meal!

    p/s - i have never eaten asam pedas batang keladi before.. is it a common dish?

    1. Well, you can find it at some mixed rice stalls here. :)

  14. You are always a lucky gal to have the big boy and small boy to accompany you everywhere!

    I always eat more local food esp spicy kampong fares at buffets. Western food is too bland and less exciting for my tongue!
