Another festive mood filled the month again; the Ramadhan.
A month bursting with buka puasa fare; bustling bazaar and stretches of feast offered by many restaurants.
During the one-month fasting period when Muslims fast, non-Muslims joined in the breaking fast affair too. But where to?
Here at Westin, they offer the Ramadhan Santapan, an international ramadhan feast featuring numerous delectable dishes. Believe it or not, there are about 700 dishes/ items.
Before breaking fast, we were served with ‘Zam Zam Water’ to cleanse our palate. The water was claimed to have healing qualities due to its high calcium and magnesium content. It was known that during Haji and Umra, the pilgrims are recommended to drink ‘zam zam water’ for thirst quenching and to cleanse their bodies. Dates and ulams were also served before breaking fast.
Very cosy environment
Picture-loaded post ahead: Below are just a part of the feast 🙂
The appetizers station loaded with colourful kueh-muehs!
From Nasi Ulam to Kerabu Udang Mangga Muda, Rojak Buah Hentian Pagoh and Pecal……
Local Malay cuisine bursting with aroma and flavours of local herbs. Best eaten with fragrant white rice.
Grilled Lamb with tender meat
Satays and Otak-Otak: the people’s favourite.
You’ll find Chinese Cuisine too. Roasted duck and chicken char siew that’ll satisfy your palate.
Over at the EEST (Westin’s signature restaurant) corner, get a taste of the all-time favourite dim sum with choices of Truffle Har Gau, Scallop and Asparagus Dumpling and Parmesan & BBQ Chicken.
Check out their “Ipoh” Claypot Chicken Fragrant Yee Mee to warm up your tummy before another round of chow-down.
Hot Soup Counter was one of my fave. A ‘steamboat’ concept that allows the patrons to select from an array of meat: salmons, beef, seafood and chicken with vegetables and mushrooms, & most importantly a medley of different flavours of soup for you to choose from.
That’s not all folks. We have the Indian corner blessed with more carbs. Roti canais and murtabak will definitely fill in your appetite.
Over to Western cuisine now, the Pasta Corner. Choose your favourite pasta and the chef will prepare your desired flavours.
Fresh Salmon Sashimis
with 3 different flavours was a kick!
We also indulged in some Latin American
food; the Seafood Paella
& Cocktel de mariscos – Seafood Cocktails
from Qba Latin Bar & Grill
, also Westin’s signature restaurant.
Over to a room nestled at the back: the Forbidden Pleasure at the Living Room
, featuring desserts that’ll remind you the story of Hansel and Gretel with their candy chocolate house! Every corner of the room is filled with desserts and candies! From Chocolate Fondue, pretty cakes, apple crumble, putu piring, ABC, Cendol Pulut
and many more.
With cabinets of yummy desserts!
Even Durian D24

Not to forget, Westin also has their own Mooncake selection: their mini mooncake collection.
