It is time for Ramadhan buffet again. I am sure a lot of you miss Ramadhan Buffet right? The pandemic has cancelled so many buffets for us foodies so I am glad that my wife, our chidren and I could enjoy our very first Ramadhan Buffet at DoubleTree Melaka in year 2021. We have been to this 5-star hotel countless times but never have we tried their Ramadhan Buffet before. Let's find out if it is good, shall we?
Head over to Makan Kitchen at DoubleTree right now!
After 1 year of Ramadhan buffet absence, we should really treat ourselves to a scrumptious spread of glorious food. And if you happen to be in Melaka, then DoubleTree Hotel is the best place for you and your family to "buka puasa" or break your fast during the upcoming Holy Month. Head over to the hotel's all-day dining restaurant-Makan Kitchen, to enjoy its irresistible all-you-can-eat buffet.
Enjoy early bird price for your Ramadhan Buffet
Let's indulge in Nostalgia Laksamana
If you think that enjoying your Ramadhan Buffet in this 5-Star hotel is very expensive, then you will be happy to discover that you are mistaken. In fact, you can enjoy early bird price as low as RM99 when you make your booking now. Judging from my previous Ramadhan Buffets in Melaka, this one at DoubleTree definitely ranks as one of the best so far.
Let's "Buka Puasa" at DoubleTree Melaka With Its Scintilating Menu
Behold: Salmon Minang with Sambal Minang
Featuring iconic Melaka fare, this year's Ramadhan Buffet encourages us to "Chup! Makan Dulu!". To the uninitiated, "Chup" literally means to pause in the Malay language in a playful manner. So the hotel wants us to pause and take a break from our hectic daily life and pandemic by enjoying quality dining time with our loved ones over a heart Ramadhan Buffet at DoubleTree by Hilton Melaka.
Let's try Nasi Pulut, Ketupat and Lemang
Ayam Golek is a local favourite for sure!
Interestingly, this year's theme for our Ramadhan Buffet at DoubleTree Melaka is "Nostalgia Laksamana". This pays tribute to the rich and vibrant heritage of tastes that are very much ingrained in our Melaka dishes. Expect to indulge in Nasi Ulam Jantung Pisang, Gulai Asam Pedas, Ayam Golek Bumbu Desa Pedas, Patin Bakar Nyonya Sauce and whole Salmon Minang with Sambal Minang. OMG! We won't be able to enjoy such traditional dishes in our daily life right? So it was truly a delightful gastronomical experience for us.

Beef lovers rejoice as you get to savour a special rump of beef that has been patiently braised for at least 12 hours in Rendang Hijau to give you that unforgettable succulent texture. I have actually fallen in love with the exotic Kerabu Sotong Sumbat Betik which was bursting with flavours. With a hint of spiciness, the exquisite Kerabu Sotong was very refreshing for my palate and it was quite an eye-opener dish for me.
Spice up your Ramadhan Buffet with an assortment of Kerabu
My favourite: Kerabu Sotong Sumbat Betik
I am pleasantly surprised by the peculiar-looking Chicken Tikka and Sheek Kebab. Both are equally tasty and I prefer Chicken Tikka a wee bit more thanks to its spiciness and bite-size chunks. The Sheek Kebab was not bad at all with its meatball like texture that bursts with flavours in your mouth. Both were being presented in skews to entice you to go get them (which I did). 😁

Savour them with these sauces!
No Ramadhan Buffet will be complete without lemang right? I love how fragrant the lemang is as it was wrapped with aromatic banana leaves before being stuffed into bamboos to be cooked. Dip the nicely cut lemang with sambal and green chilli and you will be treating yourself to a lip-smacking dinner for sure! Another must-have during Ramadhan buffet is of course roasted lamb. The ones that we had was succulent and flavourful; It was so irresistible that I had to help myself to a few more servings. Ha 😋
Indulge In a Variety of Kuih-Muih and Delicacies
Cendol and Ais Kacang for Buka Puasa
The perfect snack: Kurma + Walnut
Of course, no Ramadhan Buffet will be complete without an assortment of kuih, right? With so many choices of desserts ranging from nectareous "kuih-muih" to bite-size Kurma with Walnut, one will definitely be spoilt for choices. I know that my daughter was really swooned by her "dodol". And don't forget to try the hotel's signature Apam Balik. All in all, my family and I certainly enjoyed ourselves to the max thanks to this incredulous buffet. So if you are looking for one of the best Ramadhan Buffet in Melaka for the year 2021, head over to DoubleTree Melaka now.
