In anticipation of the Holy Month, Hotel Indigo Kuala Lumpur on the Park unveils Sajian Rimba, an extraordinary culinary journey immersing guests in the rich tapestry of Malaysian culture and local flavours.

Available from 12 March to 9 April 2024 at the Wok Star, the focal point lies in the exclusive set-to-table service, embracing the Talam style, and a semi-buffet concept.

Wok Star, the hotel’s elevated street dining restaurant, immerses guests in the enchanting beauty of Malaysian greenery to create an intimate and exclusive dining experience.

Executive Chef Zaim and his team have curated a delicious array of dishes, including the hotel’s signature Sambal Ibu.

Here are some of the dishes to expect in the Sajian Rimba menu:

  • Jelajah 5 Negeri Kerabu Bonda – Banana Flower Salad with Chicken Fillet
  • Wild Prawn Salad with Young Pineapples
  • Roasted Beef Salad with Papaya and Tamarind Sauce
  • Mango Salad and Fruit Rojak
  • The classic Ocean Grilled Platter to Your Table – Palembang Prawn and Red Snapper served with Tamarind Sauce, Spicy Soy Sauce and Portuguese Sambal.
  • Wagyu Satay Platter
  • Briyani Rice with Quail Egg
  • Poached Salmon with Tamarind Stew
  • Roasted Lamb with Coconut Gravy
  • Pineapple Salad with avocado

Taste Test

The wagyu satay platter features wagyu, glutinous rice, rice cake, ‘acar’ satay and a delectable peanut sauce. The wagyu is soft and flavourful, and the peanut sauce and fragrant rice cakes complement it well. It’s easily a snack that you’ll ask for more for yourself, although it’s meant for sharing.

For a heartier start to the meal, guests should try the Lamb Gearbox soup. The tender lamb meat pieces and the nicely spiced soup with cut carrots are sure to warm your tummy on a rainy day.

As for the curry laksa, guests are served with a large lobster in addition to tofus, vegetables and noodles of their choice.

The Roasted Lamb with Coconut Gravy is another perfect addition to the meal. The mutton is tender, and the coconut gravy gives it a hint of sweetness.

For desserts, head over to the Manisan Rimba Counter where a selection of famous local desserts awaits.

Some of the popular desserts include ais kacang, tau foo fa, kuih lapis, seri muka, chocolate fondue, mini cakes, and ice cream featuring interesting flavours such as soursop.

The Verdict

There’s a dish for everyone on the Sajian Rimba menu. Some of the standouts to me include the lamb soup, wagyu satay, and roasted lamb with coconut gravy.

The tau foo fa had a pudding-like texture and guests could flavour it with ginger benting syrup and palm sugar syrup.

For cool sweet treats, guests can customise their own ais kacang dessert at the mini ice kacang station or go for ice creams.

The Sajian Rimba gastronomic adventure is priced at RM198 per pax, with children aged 6-11 years old joining at RM99.
