Take a culinary journey through Jakarta and Jambi, Medan and Makassar, enjoying Indonesian cuisine in the comfort of your own home this Ramadan, with Aloft Kuala Lumpur Sentral's Makan Yuk takeaway sets.
The food-savvy culinary cadre from Aloft's all-day dining restaurant Nook has ensured that these sets promise an awesome time breaking fast with your loved ones, delving distinctively into time-honoured Nusantara flavours.
Select from Lamb, Beef or Chicken sets crafted by Aloft's Executive Chef Arfizan, Nook's Chef de Cuisine Rais and their team. Each set, which serves four to five people, is available from 27 April to 22 May.
Diners who pick the Lamb Set will feast on Kambing Bakar Bumbu, marinated with Asian spices and herbs like turmeric, coriander seeds, chilli powder, ginger and lemongrass. The lamb is slow-roasted for two hours to achieve a tender, juicy texture. An array of side dishes helps to round out the meal.
Ordering the Beef Set? The Daging Sapi Gongso is marinated with Indonesian sweet soy sauce, red chillies and a medley of spices including cinnamon, cardamom, cumin, anise and fennel. The secret to its succulence? The meat is meticulously braised for three hours to absorb the nuances of the marinade, yielding melt-in-your-mouth pleasure.
Finally, you can sink your teeth into the Ayam Bakar Ingkung, the star of the Chicken Set. In this recipe originating from Yogyakarta, Aloft has added its own sassy flavours, marinating the chicken with special bumbu ingredients, coconut milk and Indonesian kecap. This is paired with house-made Sambal Bajak, a sweet and spicy relish, for a cluckin’ good time.
As sweet as the moments spent with loved ones is Nook's Bubur Sumsum. Alternatively, end your meal with dates and dried fruits, while quenching your thirst with chilled juice in the sets.
The Ramadan takeaway promotion, Makan Yuk @ Home, is all you'll need for a buka puasa spread, priced at RM168 nett for the Chicken Set and RM198 nett each for the Lamb and Beef sets.
