The holy month of Ramadan is here again! Happy Ramadan to my Muslim friends and readers; who are observing this holy month. I think as Malaysians we are lucky to be able to experience the different practices of our fellow Malaysians and what comes with it. And for Ramadan, we can’t ignore the feasting that comes with it. Ramadan bazaars are abundant and I have always enjoyed exploring the different food that the various bazaars have to offer.
If you are like me and enjoyed traditional Malay fares, you should definitely check out BIJAN RESTAURANT. I have always loved the ambience of BIJAN. Its cozy set-up really sets the mood for a fine dining experience. Valet parking service is on hand to help you with parking so that should be the least of your worries. I had the opportunity to test the scrumptious spread offered by BIJAN and I tell you, this one is one restaurant you should definitely go.
From 29th May to 23rd June 20 this Ramadan, Chef Shawal and his culinary team at BIJAN will be taking us to a food heritage journey , with 4 rotating menus based on the 4 regions in Malaysia – north, south, east and central. This is a definitely a showcase of unique and iconic dishes that even I and surely a lot of Malaysians have not tasted.
I tasted the Opor Rusuk which is beef ribs cooked in a special sauce which is so good that I went for second helping. I was eyeing the Rendang Tok and was not disappointed at all. Tender beef cooked in the traditional Perak way with lots of onions and coconut milk. Wow! Just recalling this is make my mouth waters. If you like fish, the Ikan Siakap Sos Asam is a must try. Sweet sour goodness indeed!
I also tried the succulent Grilled Prawns. I must tell you, BIJAN buffet spread also includes grill stations and live-cooking stalls where you are free to choose your preferred ingredients and the chefs are ever ready to grill them for you.
I was so spoilt for your choice with all the sambal BIJAN offers. From the north alone, there are 11 types of sambalicious goodness! Don’t get me started on the rest of the region! Yummy!
For desserts, there are serabai from the North, Kuih Koci, Bingka Ubi, Seri Muka and all the different Pengats which I really love! All these desserts are some that my Malay neighbors used to send over to our home whenever they made them. Sure brings back some nostalgic memories for me.
Do check out BIJAN’s SELERA WARISAN NEGERI this Ramadan for all Malaysian fares under one roof! Reservations can be made at www.bijanrestaurant.com at RM110++ per person. For corporate enquiries, you can just email to [email protected] or contact their sales office at 03-20316568.
