Temple Tree Resort Langkawi Draws Inspiration From Bonda’s Kitchen This Ramadan

by The Kind Helper

Featuring nostalgic favourites and authentic Malay recipes specially prepared  by new Head Chef Shamsul Kamar Hashim 

Langkawi, Kedah; 6 March 2023 – Inspired by the rich culinary heritage of Malaysia and deep  traditions of the Malay culture, Temple Tree Resort Langkawi invites everyone to take a trip down  memory lane with its Ramadan Buffet spread served from 27th March until 21st April 2023. Themed  “Selera Tradisi Bonda” which translates into “Mother’s Traditional Favourites”, a mouth-watering  spread awaits as the resort’s new Head Chef Shamsul prepares classic favourites during the month of  Ramadan, using only the freshest and sustainably sourced ingredients from local farmers and  fishermen on the island. 

Highlights of this year’s breaking of fast feast will include the visually striking and sumptuous Roasted  Lamb with Mint Sauce & Black Pepper Sauce on a spit at the lively food stall, while the unique charcoal  aroma will permeate the air enticing guests to make a beeline for the Ikan Bakar with Air Asam and  an array of other freshly grilled meat and seafood, all prepared and cooked on the traditional dapur  arang (charcoal stove), which in the good old days, were once deemed as a must-have kitchen  equipment in every kampung household – and it doesn’t get any more authentic than this! For those  craving more, explore other delectable items on the buffet spread showcasing colourful variety of  street and home cooked dishes. Some of these that will be available at the buffet and are not to be  missed are Bubur Lambuk, Murtabak, Penang Char Kway Teow, Ikan Tenggiri Asam Pedas Melaka,  Sambal Udang Petai, Gulai Tulang Rusuk Perak, Negeri Sembilan Gulai Itik Salai, and so much more. 

Complementing the star dishes will be different types of rice such as Nasi Tomato and Nasi Briyani, a  variety of kerabu items such as Kerabu Mangga, and selected condiments of jeruk, keropok, ikan  masin, sambal and ulam-ulaman, to name only a few. Look forward to popular dishes from other parts  of Malaysia such as Laksa Sarawak and Mee Kolok from the noodle counter, and hearty Sup Tulang  Rawan and Sup Ayam Cendawan from the soup counter. Other items to be featured at the buffet  include the must-have kurma, a selection of Malay kuih-muih and refreshing cold drinks to quench  your thirst such as sugar cane, soda sirap, and cincau. End the meal with a glass of teh tarik and classic  sweet treats such as cendol, bubur pulut hitam, and lai chi kang.  

Chef Shamsul says, “Ramadan is always a special month for me growing up in a traditional Malay  kampung. I remember the smell from my mother’s kitchen as she was busy preparing a buka puasa spread for the family. I hope to bring to this year’s Ramadan – my first with Temple Tree Resort  Langkawi – a selection of traditional dishes from my mom’s kitchen that are distinctively Malay from  age-old recipes that have been passed down through generations. To the locals here, I’d say ‘Mai  ramai ramai sini buka puasa sama sama, jangan sampai terlepaih peluang!’ (Don’t miss out this  opportunity to come together over a meal this Ramadan)”
