Ramadan 2023 – Sajian Kayangan Kita at Four Seasons Hotel Kuala Lumpur

I was definitely feeling warm and on top of the world as I walked into the bright, airy interiors of Curate the all-day dining restaurant at Four Seasons Hotel Kuala Lumpur recently for their Ramadan Review.

Curate caters to palates and preferences from around the globe, with offerings rooted in the spirit of Malaysia….

Helming the team is a trio of exceptional local talents – Chef Hanif Ahmadiah, Chef Mohammed Alif Muazzam Saffarudin, and Chef Putri Farisya Amirza.

As passionate custodians of Malaysian culinary traditions, all three chefs give top billing to indigenous ingredients, recipes and cooking techniques.

Some of the must-try specialties this Ramadan at Curate include:

  • Laksa Sarang Kayangan Salmon / Curry Laksa by Chef Hanif – An iconic Malaysian dish made with staples such as coconut milk, chillies, lemongrass and ground spices. Chef Hanif raises the luxury quotient by adding salmon and caviar, which pair beautifully with the crispy egg noodles.
  • Nasi Ulam by Chef Putri – “My mother, who is from Perlis, taught me a lot about the cuisine of northern Malaysian,” explains Chef Putri. She uses a traditional family recipe to make her favourite Iftar dish for guests – traditional steamed rice with herbs and vegetables.
  • Apam Gula Hangus by Chef Alif – Soft, spongy and succulent, this traditional caramel-flavoured cake is typically served during Hari Raya. “It’s a must-have in my family,” says Chef Alif, who recommends eating the cake with jackfruit, coconut ice cream, and a drizzle of caramel sauce.

Malaysian ingredients and cooking techniques also form the base for innovation at Curate. The team loves to combine local elements with global inspirations, lending the menu touches of surprise. Take, for example, the Coconut “Cha Cha” Creme Brûlée.

This playful fusion dessert by Chef Alif blends the classic European creme brûlée with the tropical local coconut. The recipe also swaps regular sugar with Gula Melaka, an unrefined palm sugar with a distinctive caramel flavour.

Curate also welcomes talented Guest Chefs to showcase the cuisines of other regions. In April 2023, Chef Abd El Rahman from Four Seasons Resort Sharm El Sheikh brings a bevy of Egyptian delights to the festive buffet.

Diners can sample an array of authentic recipes from Egypt, including Stuffed Pigeon, Lamb Fatteh, Okra and Meat Tagine, Muammar Rice, and Molokai and Shrimp Soup.

So for those of you who loves to indulge yourself and your loved ones or impress a few clients or business partners, head over to Curate to break your fast with a hearty buffet spread of rich aromas, playful textures and vibrant colours. Journey through local blends of flavours with recipes passed down from generations!!!
