KUALA LUMPUR: The country’s premier golf club is going all out to make this Ramadan one to remember.
As you feast your eyes on the rolling greens just outside your window, you can literally feast inside on delicious dishes from Malaysia and around the world as conceptualised by Dapur’s executive chef Mohd Faisal Ismail and his team of talented chefs.
You can be sure to find something you love at any one, if not all, of the 18 food stalls serving mostly Malay cuisine with a modern twist.
If you’re a seafood lover, the ‘Ikan Patin Masak Tempoyak Taugeh Ipoh’ will truly satisfy you. A vibrant dish of catfish cooked Malay-style, the tangy undertones of the gravy, a crucial element of any good seafood dish, is best enjoyed with nasi minyak or better yet – plain white rice.
Fusing Balinese and local flavours, the ‘Ayam Panggang Bumbu Bali’ is a winner. Marinated with a blended chilli paste concoction, then grilled till cooked through yet still tender, the spice level is just right – pleasing on your palate without setting your tongue on fire.
And now for a famous and much-loved tropical fruit given a savoury twist – the ‘Masak Lemak Nenas’. This dish is everything you want a good dish to be – sweet, savoury, spicy and sinfully flavourful. After all, pineapple and shrimp have long been known to pair well. And when stewed in coconut milk, the result is glorious.
But should you wish to go easy on the spice, the seafood platter is a great option. From lobsters and prawns to mussels and clams, it’s a seafood lovers paradise here.
Outside the ‘Dapur’, you can order plates of char kueh teow or fill your plate with beef and chicken satay. Don’t forget the satay kuah and ketupat.
To end your meal, make some space for dessert. ‘Dapur’ has a lovely selection that will satisfy even the fussiest!
For something decadent, grab a slice or two of the red velvet cake or the sinfully rich chocolate cake. There are also mini chocolate tarts – could you possibly ask for more?
Feeling local? The pandan-inspired cake is light as a cloud and delicious. There is also sago gula Melaka served in fancy glasses – a refreshing, sweet and tasty dessert that you will likely need two servings of – it’s that good!
On another platter, there are Malaysian kueh – kuih ketayap, red kuih sago, kuih bingka and popiah basah. There’s more but you’ve got to be there to see for yourself.
