I attended the media preview of the Ramadan bazaar buffet at Thistle Johor Bahru which will be hosted during the coming Ramadan holy month from 6 Jun to 4 Jul.

Thistle Johor Bahru's Executive Chef Huzaidy has planned a bazaar themed buffet of over 80 dishes with live cooking stations and hawker stalls.

The bazaar buffet will be held at the spacious Orchid Ballroom and also at Thistle's poolside area which will be dressed with traditional oil lamps and decorations. I think it will have the great balik kampung feel - the perfect setting for get togethers with families and friends.

Executive Head Chef Mahmood and his team will bring back many traditional dishes, the kind that nenek (grandma) cooks during the holy month of Ramadan.

Look out for the Pulut Serawa Durian.

It's sweet glutinous rice slathered with sweet creamy durian "porridge". There will also be Durian Goreng (fried durian fritters) and fresh durians (if you prefer to enjoy your durians el naturel).

I firmly believe that taste is subjective and so, warmly welcome differing viewpoints :-D But, I disapprove negative comments that are anonymous or hide behind fake identities. I feel that that is the same as speaking ill of others behind their backs. I look forward to all your comments :-D Thank you. (Date: 18 Dec 2015)
