Gemersik Selera @ Mill Café, Grand Millennium Kuala Lumpur

One must be holy – or at least fortified with strong faith – not to be tempted by the smell and taste of the fantastic buffet spread at Grand Millennium KL. But every Muslim here obeys the laws of the Muslim fast, and the announcement of the end of the fast has not yet been made. Only young children, who cannot understand concepts like communal brotherhood or fasting to purify body and soul, are allowed to eat.

live traditional music and entertainment

At around 7pm, people are already settling down to the tables, done with the evening prayer and are eagerly await the muezzin’s call. At 7:30 P.M., when the muezzin announces the end of the fast, a heavy silence falls over tables. Nobody opens his mouth for any purpose except filling it with food. Anyone who has fasted from 4 A.M. dreams all day about the moment when eating will be permitted again, and about the piles of delicious foods that will appear on his or her table. The desire is great, but the appetite can’t keep up. After many hours of fasting, one can eat only sparingly. But first you open up your appetite with some syrup water, and some lovely plump, juicy dates. Then as you feel your appetite returning, you can really focus on the food at hand.

  1. delicious rewards after a long day of patient perseverance in fasting! the rice looks great; i’d break the no-rice rule for buffets and treat myself to several scoops of the nasi ulam! :D

  2. They have delicious lamb there! So tender and juicy.
