Syiok Malaysia Menu At Makan Kitchen, Doubletree by Hilton

Oh dear, this post is a bit late, which is a pity, and I hope they extend this promotion, cos the food is really rather good, the SYIOK MALAYSIA 3.0 in conjunction with Merdeka and Malaysia Day.  As of now, it extends to 16th September so do hurry, it's priced at RM135 nett per person.

So what is SYIOK MALAYSIA 3.0?  In that already vast buffet that is Makan Kitchen, for this period, from around Malaysia, several chefs are highlighting their various fortes, from their home states in some cases.

Larkin Kacang Pool, a beanie delicacy that is like a local mexican bean soup kinda thing.  Rather unique, and served with a fried egg, and toast to dip, with a lovely side salad of paku pakis (wild ferns)

Welcome three layer tea drink....

A very comforting broth that reminds me a bit of the chinese salted mustard greens soup, (ham choy).  Nyonya Itik Tim, a quintessential peranakan soup. 

Signature Penang fish head curry..... seriously there was too much food that night and  I didnt get to try everything, but the sauce was rich and thick and a perfect accompaniment with rice.

One of their signature dishes has always been the Roast Duck, which is really very very good.  I believe this dish is normally available in the buffet.

Roast Duck roasted to perfection.

It's quite a painstaking process, as you can see, the Chef must be pretty strong to begin with, to have to suspend that duck for such a long time on one hand while basting it with hot oil.

Sarawak Laksa, my favourite dish of the night.  The soup was perfect, not too rich, not watered down, and chocful of ingredients.  Just thinking about it makes me want to troop over to Makan Kitchen for this.  Sarawak Laksa has been really making waves in the Peninsula in the last decade or so, and this version, in my opinion, is very good.

A special briyani, so very rich but so very good and decadent.

Beef Rendang Tok.  It's interesting how each state prides itself with their own versions of rendang, and rendang Tok, one of my personal favourites, hails from Perak, and it actually is supposed to be a dish befitting of royalty.  The difference is this rendang is drier than the other cousins, but so delicious.  Melt in the mouth beef.

A buffet is incomplete with a teh tarik....

And dessert, ice kacang... for that night, ours was presented with a candy floss covering...a bit too pink and sugary for me.

Hopefully they will maintain some of these wonderful dishes after the promo is over.
