Traveling to Johor Bahru? This Ramadhan, Thistle Johor Bahru has lined up many exciting promotions!!
Our favourite pick in Thistle’s vast Ramadhan promotions is its ‘1Malaysia’ Ramadhan Buffet at Orchid Ballroom. Headed by the Executive Chef, Azmi Afandi, ‘1Malaysia’ Ramadhan Buffet promotes ‘live-stations’ concept. One can find many ‘stations’ that prepare countless favourite dishes a la minute (on the spot). The most popular station at the ‘1Malaysia’ Ramadhan Buffet is the Seafood station. Here, one may find live Sea Bass and Talapia as well as a wide selection of fresh Prawns, White Bait, Ikan Keli (Catfish) and Kerisi, ready to be prepared with your favourite sauces such as Sweet and Sour, Hong Kong style, ‘Samba’l or Salted Bean. Methods of cooking offered include deep fried, steamed, hot plate (BBQ) or boiled (according to your preference). Favourite hits at the station are Sea Bass Thai Style, Kerisi Hot Plate Sambal Petai, Fresh Prawn Kang Po and Deep Fried White Bait with Lemon.
If seafood doesn’t tickle your tastebuds, move over to BBQ Meats Station where you will find Honey Chicken Wings, Lamb Chop and Beef Sirloin ready with a choice of black pepper, BBQ and Rosemary sauces. Otak-Otak, Chicken and Beef Satay are also available as well as Roasted Chicken and Duck Rice, prepared Hainan style.
Kawah Station will display ‘Asam Pedas’, ‘Ayam Masak Kurma’ and ‘Kambing Karamel’; a unique trio-combination. Fritter Station will dish out your favourite Keropok Lekor, Cucur Udang, Keropok Ikan, Keropok Udang, Curry Puff, Char Kway and even the crowd favourite Deep Fried Durian! One bite of this fancy dessert and you will never look at Durian the same way again!
True to its name, the ‘1Malaysia’ Station dishes out favourite Malay, Chinese and Indian cuisines. Briyani, Tandoori, Masak Lemak, Laksa, and Baba & Nyonya dishes are aplenty here. The Regional Kampung Favourites Station lists Ketupat Pulut, Gulai Nenas Ikan Talang, Ayam Percik, Nasi Kerabu, Mee Udang, Daging Salai Masak Lemak Cili Padi, Mi Kolok and Bubur Lambuk as must-haves.
