Here is another recommendation for Ramadhan Buffet for breaking fast.
With the escalating prices of almost everything, it is indeed surprising that one can still find a sumptuous buffet at an incredible price of RM42.90 nett per adult and RM16.50 nett per child aged between four and 12 years old. Considering its wide spread and variety, this Citarasa Ramadhan Buffet is value for money.
Available until Sept 27, the buffet spread at the Garden Terrace of Kelab Golf Perkhidmatan Awam (KGPA) in Bukit Kiara will boast up to 150 local favourites, ranging from appetisers, main courses and desserts to beverages.
The main highlight of this promotion is the Whole Roasted Lamb which is from New Zealand. The lamb is marinated for a day before it is roasted over a charcoal fire.
Local Malay dishes include Sup Tulang, Daging Salai Masak Lemak, Ketam Lada Hitam, Daging Tetel Masak Asam Pedas, Sambal Goreng Jawa, Siput Masak Lemak, Ikan Kembung Rebus Dengan Air Asam.
Aside from the Malay must-have dishes during the holy month, the buffet also caters for all taste buds with an array of Chinese, Indian and other Asian cuisines.
Chinese dishes include Orh Jien (Oyster omelette), Lok-lok (steamboat) and Char Kuey Teow, to name a few.
Indian dishes include favourites like Roti Canai, Murtabak and Tosai.
If you are planning on a family or group outing, you may want to get their group discount vouchers which are sold at RM429 nett per booklet of 10 vouchers, with an additional two vouchers given for free.
Each voucher bearer can enter a lucky draw on Sept 27 to win prizes such as 32” LCD TV, mobile phone, digital camera, golf resort stay and hampers.

What comes to mind when you think of A&W? Coney Dog and root beer, right? These are still available, of course, but this Ramadan, the fast food restaurant chain is introducing something different. It's their latest combo offering, dubbed the A&W Citarasa Ramadan.
The combo comprises two dishes specially prepared for the whole of September. The first item of the combo is a rice dish, with accompaniments of kurma (dates), salad, masak lemak daging salai (beef), and a regular mug of their famous Root Beer.
Cooked with herbs and spices, the masak lemak daging salai is hygienically prepared to ensure its fresh and authentic taste. Spicy gravy is drizzled over the rice to give it the added oomph.
This dish is priced at RM7.50.
If you would like something extra you can order the combo’s second dish — the Chicken Satay.
The serving of four sticks of satay comes with sides like French fries, cucumber, and peanut gravy.
If you order the main rice dish, you can have this Chicken Satay for a top-up price of RM4.70.
The Chicken Satay alone as an ala carte dish is at RM5.30.
Both dishes are available throughout the day, including Buka and Sahur.
