Culinary Team


During when I was a kid, I used to stay at Parkroyal Hotel Chatz Brasserie as my dad loves the concept of it alot but as I grow up, to stay in the hotel seems unlikely in this challenging world, as everything increase in prices but not our salary. It had been since about 10 years ago since I last step my foot onto this hotel but surely this visit did give me a comfort feeling that I just got to know that they had refurbish themself to more elegant business hotel.

Therefore, for this Bulan Puasa let’s feast in style by the lavish spread of traditional dishes featuring ‘gulai kawah’ and a taste of Brazilian roasts and grills by Chatz Brasserie, PARKROYAL Kuala Lumpur’s culinary team this Ramadhan season. The highlight this year is the selection of ‘gulai kawah’ – mouth-watering stews cooked in huge cast ‘kawah’ or giant woks.The ‘Gulai Kawah’ station is the star item to look out for – specialties include flavoursome Kambing Gulai Kawah – Spiced Braised Mutton, Kari Udang Galah Bernenas – Fresh Water Prawn and Pineapple Curry, Gulai Lemak Daging Salai Terung Pipit – Braised Smoked Beef with Baby Eggplant in Coconut Milk, Gulai Pisang Muda Bersama Ikan Masin – Braised Young Banana with Salted Fish and Gulai Belitung Bersama Terung Dan Daun Selasih – Braised Local Snail.

Selamat BerBuka Puasa Buffett. One great thing about Malaysia is that, when it comes to festive season, it always going to be a joyful occasions with friends and family visiting each other. As what I know, Puasa month is not far away from now, as Ramadan is the ninth month of the Islamic calendar. It is the Islamic month of fasting in which participating Muslims refrain from eating, drinking, that is in excess or ill-natured; from dawn until sunset. Fasting is meant to teach the Muslim patience, modesty and spirituality. Ramadan is a time for Muslims to fast for the sake of God (Arabic: الله‎, trans: Allah) and to offer more prayer than usual. During Ramadan, Muslims ask forgiveness for past sins, pray for guidance and help in refraining from everyday evils, and try to purify themselves through self-restraint and good deeds. As compared to the solar calendar, the dates of Ramadan vary, moving backwards about ten days each year as it is a moving holiday depending on the moon. Ramadan was the month in which the first verses of the Qur’an were said to be revealed to the Islamic Prophet Muhammad. (source from Wikipedia)

In conjunction with the holy month of Ramadan, Eccucino’s culinary team presents menu with over fifty buffet items, menu changed daily, with a range of popular Malaysian dishes from various States and home-cooked “kampung” dishes.
