The festive season is once again upon us, and as a multiracial country there is nothing we love more than celebrating in unity. This year Hilton Petaling Jaya’s Paya Serai has come out with something different to serve us during the Ramadan season, where they offering local delights in the form of food trucks for different experience. We got an early taste of what they are offering this year.

There are approximately 150 dishes of delicious, modern and traditional food offered, ranging from western, to asian and plenty of local delights to maximise the Ramadan experience, which will be available from 15 May till 14 June.

To start out, we tried something light - the Beef and Chicken Satay. The satay itself was well marinated and we didn’t even need the peanut sauce to enjoy it! The smokey taste which is essential to a good satay coated every stick without fail. Definitely a good start to the Paya Serai Ramadan Buffet.

Next, we sampled some seafood. Pair the incredibly fresh ingredients with condiments such as, lemon wedges, cocktail, lime, lemon, pesto oil & tabasco sauce.

Out of all the sections and rows and rows of dishes, my personal favourite is the teppanyaki bar. The chef cooked our meats to the perfect doneness and we enjoyed the little teppanyaki show he put on for us.

As mentioned earlier, Paya Serai’s introduction of the Food Trucks meant we had more atypical options to choose from. We got to sample dishes like laksa, cendol and rojak mamak. I personally would recommend trying the laksa, if you are a laksa lover. The portions aren’t too big, which will allow you the space to eat all the other dishes.

And finally we moved on to the dessert section and tried kuih talam from the traditional kuih section and some of their tarts and cakes from the western dessert section.
Of course, we’ve only covered a small portion of the entire buffet spread, focusing here on our favourites. But overall, there were plenty of other delicious options. If you are looking to experience something different than usual for a Ramadan buffet this year, we would recommend you to try Hilton’s Paya Serai Ramadan Buffet.
