Buffet ala Citrawarna at Pulai Springs

The family-friendly Gleneagles Terrace Restaurant at Pulai Springs Resort is an ideal setting for a relaxing and enjoyable breaking-of-fast meal this Ramadan.

culinary team presents Buffet ala Citrawarna
Buffet ala Citrawarna, served from May 27 to June 23 at Gleneagles Terrace Restaurant, is made up of more than 100 dishes that Executive Chef Ian Lim and his culinary team have designed in six mouth-watering menus.

The spread certainly lives up to its theme, Citrawarna, where appetizers, soups, local favourites, Raya delicacies as well as Arabian treats and Chinese dishes are displayed in an attractive and colourful palette.

The most eye-catching and tempting section must be where desserts vie for attention in a parade of cakes, jellies, pastries, puddings and fresh fruits as well as ice-cream and refreshing sticks of nostalgic ice-cream Malaysia.

Fans of local desserts will be thrilled with Pastry Chef Nor’s warm Serawa Durian, steamed glutinous rice drenched in thick durian cream, an item that will satisfy all durian cravings.

Diners can look forward to savour buka puasa favourites that range from local salads, pickles, meat, poultry and seafood to grilled meats from stalls as well as the barbecue and carving stations. 

Asam Pedas Kota Laksamana made with Ikan Pari or ray fish, is a main course item to enjoy with white rice. Other local favourites include nangka muda masak lemak or young jackfruit cooked in coconut milk and ikan keli sambal cili or catfish topped with chilli sambal.

Traditional not-to-be-missed favourites must be kari ikan masin dengan ubi or salted fish curry with tapioca, ayam percik or grilled chicken and Minangkabau style beef rendang. For something Middle Eastern, try fragrant Nasi Arab served with condiments.

To get into the Raya mood, there are servings of Nasi Impit or rice cubes to eat with traditional serunding or meat floss and beef rendang.

For a comforting soup, enjoy the Soup Gearbox or Soup Daging (beef), a broth rich with herbs and spices, topped with sambal kicap and served with slices of French bread to wipe up every drop of delicious soup.

Staff are on hand to serve bowls of Laksa Penang, rice noodles in a spicy but appetizing fish broth that packs a powerful punch from slices of chilli padi swimming in the broth!

Over at the Barbecue Station, a whole roasted lamb will be carved while grilled chicken, lamb and fish are served with a range of sauces. Skewers of tender beef and chicken satay are enjoyed with rice cubes and condiments, drizzled in delicious peanut sauce.

Fan of freshly fried items should head to the Frying Station for fried chicken, fried popia or spring rolls, fried keledek or sweet potato slices and exotic fried banana with cheese.

Another interesting fried item at the Citrawarna buffet is dubbed Meatballs ala Pulai, their version of Swedish meatballs topped with brown sauce and savoured with mashed potatoes.

Regulars at the resort’s award-winning Qing Palace restaurant will recognise some familiar dishes served in the spread including Butter Prawns and Lo Hon Chai mixed vegetables. Don’t miss their signature dessert – muaji – glutinous rice balls stuffed with ground toasted nuts.

There is also a range of fresh greens like ulam-ulam kampong with a choice of traditional sambal sauces. In addition to piquant pickles, there are also an appetizing range of Malaysian and Thai salads or kerabu created in mango, beef and seafood varieties and also eggplant topped with sambal ikan bilis or anchovy sambal.
