Celebrate Merdeka & Malaysia day at Sunway Resort
It’s time to celebrate Merdeka and Malaysia day with a hearty plate of our national dish, nasi lemak. Malaysia Day may be over a month away, but it doesn’t mean you can’t celebrate with a hearty buffet twice. Located in the Resort Cafe, Sunway Resort, Chef De Cuisine Afiq Matkhir and sous chef Nora Yusof are bringing the classics with a one-of-a-kind nasi lemak buffet. Traditional favourites comprise the Peranakan nasi lemak pandan, Kedah’s nasi lemak kuning royal, Kelantan’s signature nasi lemak Bunga telang and the iconic nasi lemak putih. A plate of this signature dish isn’t complete with some heat. The buffet also provides an extensive range of sambals ranging from slow-cooked sambal bawang to sambal ikan masin. Apart from that, guests can enjoy a variety of fried anchovies and side dishes. For those who prefer an ala carte menu, the cafe offers its own ‘build your own nasi lemak’.
The Merdeka and Malaysia Day buffet lunch is available from 15 August to 16 September 2022, priced at RM138 nett from Monday to Saturday and RM168 nett on Sundays. However, the buffet dinner is priced at RM198 nett on Friday and Saturday nights. Visit the website for more info.
