A taste of nostalgic flavours and recipes using traditional ingredients and methods served on a luscious buffet spread? That is exactly the culinary experience we enjoyed when we attended the media preview of Sunway Resort Hotel and Spa‘s latest buffet offerings.

Featuring a jaw-dropping selection of over 400 dishes with a total of 10 unique live-action cooking stalls, we were definitely spoilt for choice. From Churrascos to Kambing Golek with a unique serving of Assam Pedas Gearbox thrown into the mix, it was literally food haven!

A what gearbox now? The ever so popular Malaysian broth made out of a cow’s bone marrow is given a makeover here by adding some spiciness of assam pedas, another popular local dish.

Combining two familiar tastes into one extraordinary fusion of flavours really caught us off guard, especially the audacity of trying to combine two local favourites. Amazingly, the fusion worked gloriously as we couldn’t get enough of the spicy, savoury soup as well as the yummy succulent innards of the bone marrow!

The chefs of The Resort Cafe at Sunway Resort Hotel and Spa really outdid themselves here, as we later found out that the dish was cooked with bone marrow pieces over a slow fire for eight hours and then served from a large cauldron which created the visual and aromatic culinary treat that was presented before us. Woah, such hard work!

Kudos to the chefs for trying out something so bold. The taste really is something you should test out yourself!
