Located on Level Six of the hotel within the mall, the Causeway Café has gained a reputation for its weekend buffets – which was often overbooked – and is ready to please diners by serving over 300 flavours of dishes from Malaysian Heritage in their Ramadan buffet.


Diners who are familiar with this Café will agree with me that while this dining space may not be huge, the culinary team can use the space creatively to serve a wide range of traditional breaking-of-fast dishes from live-cooking stations and a hot buffet.

In the preview of this Ramadan spread, I was pleased to spot Bubur Lambuk, traditional rice porridge to warm the stomach after a day-long fast and Sup Ayam, a traditional rich chicken soup.


In addition, there were also Sup Kambing Berempah and Cream of Pumpkin Soup to enjoy with a range of bread rolls.


There were refreshing local salads, Ulam-ulaman served with a range of traditional sauces like Sambal Belacan, Tempoyak, Cili Kicap, Budu, Cencaluk, and Air Asam.
