Merdeka Palace Hotel & Suites Ramadan Buffet

June 21st, 2015 · 4 Surrendered

Finally something food related which is up to date 😛

You know the fasting month has started, this means you will see many eateries introducing their Ramadan buffets. I thought I would be able to attend Pullman’s and Grand Margherita’s but due to unforeseen circumstances I had to skip. Too bad… Guess only Merdeka Palace Hotel & Suites (Jalan Tun Abang Hj Openg, 93000 Kuching, Sarawak,) this time around.


This time, they are having their Ramadan feast at the ballroom located on the third floor instead of the Italian restaurant, Ristorante Beccari. Less live action stalls due to the location but food still tasted great!


Over 100 choices of food. It looks like not much choices based on the presentation and arrangement when you’re in the ballroom but in fact they have a lot to choose from if you look at them carefully. I forgot my camera, that’s why the photos are dull, had to resort to my phone’s camera then heavy editing with Photoshop.


Left: My favourite of all! Spit-roasted whole lamb, tender and juicy. I love it with the black pepper sauce. This is the best I tried. I heard that the lambs from other places are very dry. This is the best.

Right: Fruit rojak and Indian rojak. Not a fan of the Indian rojak. Generally, I don’t like eating rojak in hotels. Still prefer those outside.


Some of the main dishes such as beef rendang, lamb kurma, curry and so on. Great to go with fragrant rice.

Right: Rojak kangkong, prepare by the chef upon request at one the live cooking stalls. Rather spicy but it’s nice.


Left: Another of my favourite, satay!! Chicken and beef.

Right: Lok lok, you can opt for it to be cooked in water or deep fried.

There’s more food but I didn’t have much photos because I forgot my camera. Most photos turned out beyond the point of being able to salvage.


Another favourite of mine is the pizza, they have 3 different pizza choices everyday. Oh YUM! It’s not oven baked but wood oven baked! Must not miss this.

Don’t forget the bubur pedas too. It’s one of the best. My first time having it. Surprisingly delicious!

Oh! One more! The roti john is great!

Had a feast and fun night with the bloggers.

    You must have gone to a different one cos the one I went to in Merdeka Palace, the lamb’s tough and dry, the bubur has no taste, the satay’s dry and the roti John looks all mush up. The nice items are pizza, pasta, rojak and sotong kangkong. the mutton in nasi beriyani very tender but the nasi is rather tasteless.

    Doreen, maybe happened that we went on different night but since the first day till yesterday, all in all, 6 nights out of 7 nights, the lamb and satay were all good, I never missed it. Roti John only had once because too full already and I personally don’t like roti, any kind of roti. Looks like those I don’t like you like and vice versa ;p
