Khadijah Ibrahim, Khadijah’s Kitchen sure do not ring a bell to me, after talked to her in person only realize that she is one of a famous singer in local and internationally arena with more than 31 years of experience that makes her as one of the leading singers of her generation, pioneer and innovator. From her popularity she had been named as a cultural ambassador for Malaysia and I believe you guys are very familiar with a song for Tourism Malaysia, ‘Malaysia Truly Asia’.
Now besides being a singer, she loves to cook too, a food hunter and also a person whom is humble and willing to share and teach if you want to be a chef and that creates out Khadijah’s Kitchen which is one of the hidden gem in Petaling Jaya area, thanks to Florence for introducing this place.
A simple and cozy place that offer more on homely ambience that she mention, most of the restaurant furniture are from her house. Her friends are quite shock when visited her house saying that, isn’t that is the same as your restaurant? As she spends most of her time in the restaurant, she had made it her second home that ensure it’s a place like home to provide for diners.
If you are looking for nice local Malay authentic food, there is no doubt that this would be one of the places to look for.
Her shop is also being hunt by Jalan Jalan Cari Makan by TV3.
Not only that, she sang for our ex current Prime Minister
A place that resembles all her unique collection and award that she had got from the past to decorate it around her shop. If you would want to know, what she had sang, her shop would be the best place to see it.
Sang along with many great artist in the past.
Besides serving ala cart, she sure do reservation for special function, hosting big group of people and also catering. We do not know what to order and we order most of it with chef’s recommendation.
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.
This restaurant interior sure gives me home feel with low ceiling, wooden floor with white table cloth covers all the tables and shiny glass wine placed upon.
Brazilian Twist Section, that offers cozy with dim orange lights with very soft music as the background music to suits the ambiance.
If you do feel like doing some groovy move, you there is a dance floor for you to show your great skills.
To start with, the appetisers station is where you will find evergreen starters such as Pasembor Berlauk,Kerabu Ayam Daun Kesom, Ulam-ulam Mentah dan Rebus, and icy-cold Fresh Oyster, Poached Mussel, Clam and Prawn, made zesty with lemon and lime wedges and cocktail sauce.
