That time of the year has come again. When Muslims the world over embark on a month-long spiritual commemoration of one of the Five Pillars of Islam. The holy month of Ramadan is a time of adherence and celebration, and Resorts World Genting once again invites all Malaysians and international guests to break their daily fast on the mountaintop this May, while counting down to the beginning of Syawal and Hari Raya Aidilfitri on June 4.
This year, the famous Ramadan Buffet at the Rajawali Coffee House at Resorts World Awana returns once again. Featuring over a hundred dishes, the theme of the buffet this year is Bazar Malam di Awana – a collection of food and drink stalls arranged like a vibrant pasar malam.
Start off with an international spread of appetisers, including Ulam-Ulaman Zaman Jepun (Japanese colonial-era salads) like Pegaga, Ulam Raja, Terung Pipit, Terung Bulu, Petai, Pucuk Janggus, Pucuk Mata Itik, Umbut Kelapa, Jantung Pisang.
There’s a Mendeka Kerabu station featuring all sorts of salads like Prawn, Squid, Fish and Crab.
Traditional pickles like Jeruk Nyonya Masdor, Jeruk Kelubi, Jeruk Mempelam and Jeruk Salak are available too.
The feast then moves into the main courses, with over 15-20 stalls serving up Malay specialties from across the country. At the main Rosnie’s Stall, a whole Roasted Australian Lamb is presented in all its glory with Homemade Black Pepper Sauce and Mint sauce.
Other stalls include ones specialising in Ayam Percik, in Otak-Otak and Satay, in Tempura-style Deep-Fried Seafood, in Mamak favourites like Murtabak and Roti Canai, in Nasi Kerabu/Nasi Lemak, in Kebabs and in Laksa and noodles such as Mee Jawa and Mee Rebus.
There will even be a stall for fragrant Pais Ikan Tempoyak.
Luscious spread of Nasi Kandar/Briyani at Gopal’s Stall is not to be missed too if you like a burst of flavour on your tastebuds.
Aromatic broths at the Sup Meletup ‘Abe’ Awana stall will be a perfect comfort food that will warm your tummy after fasting for the whole day.
Don’t miss out the main specialty of Rajawali, which is the “Awana Rendang Tok”. They’re worth every calories taken in.
Remember to save some space for snacks like Keropok Lekor, Apam Balik, Durian Goreng, Pisang Bakar Kelapa Parut/Cempedak Goreng and Rojak. And, of course, a spread of premium Kurma (dates) imported from the Middle East – which is the traditional way to break fast.
Taken too much spicy food? Cool down and sweeten up with the freshest of local fruit at the Pondok Buah stall like Watermelon, Nangka, Dragonfruit, Rambutan, Bananas or even Papayas.
Rajawali’s amazing selection of over 40 Malay kuih at Taman Manisan “Che Re” is definitely a must indulge on.

Other dessert options includes Cendol and Ais Batu Campur. Not into cooling stuff? The buffet is also offerung warm stews like Bubur Cha-Cha, Pengat Pisang Raja and Bubur Penambah Rase.
