Assalamualaikum and hello.
Can you believe Ramadan is just around the corner? Oh my god, how time flies. We keep saying that, but that's a fact! *ahahaha* Anyway since Ramadan is coming, you bet there are plenty of ramadan offers for buka puasa (break fast). Today we are going to look into Kluang Station Ramadan Special and for this year, they are inspired by the Middle East delicacy, Mandi rice. I love Mandi rice, yes, a middle eastern cuisine lover here. :D Mandi is a Basmathi rice dish cooked with spices and meat. It could be chicken, lamb or any other meat. I always opt for chicken mandi whenever I dine in (or takeouts) in arabic restaurants. Lets hop right in! :)
We had the food review session at The Waterfront at Parkcity which is located in the Desa Park City area. This is my first time in this outlet, and I love the open air concept. But they also have indoor seating with the comfort of air-conditioner. :)
For this Ramadan, Kluang Station offers 3 meat choices for their customers to be served with their aromatic spiced Basmathi rice. You can choose between whole leg chicken, spicy beef dendeng or lamb curry. This meal is completed with two side dishes, chickpeas tomato salsa and butter yogurt. Customers will also get a complimentary Sirap Selasih and a serving of dates for buka puasa. You may request for dhal curry as it is free with any meal, but just make sure to request for it.
The Mandi rice is aromatic and fragrant. I can taste the spice but it's not too strong. The rice is well-seasoned and not oily. It has the right amount of moist in the rice that makes the rice fluffy. Perfect to go with any of the 3 meat choices.
Mandi with Beef Dendeng
Price : RM22.65
This beef dendeng is a bit different from what I used to eating. This beef has a crunchy texture on the outside but it's tender in the inside. The spiciness level is about 50-70 percent, but it is balanced with the sweetness of the sambal. I love it, it's spicy but sweet. My mom and I cook beef dendeng every Eid and it is one of the dishes that everybody loves. It is time-consuming to make beef dendeng, but it is totally worth it. This beef dendeng in Kluang Station is different from my family's recipe, but it is still so good!
Mandi with Whole Leg Chicken
Price : RM22.65
The chicken is so moist! When I bite into it, it just melts into my mouth. It's not spicy at all, not greasy. If you prefer chicken, this is a must try!
Mandi with Lamb Curry
Price : RM22.65
I'm not really a big fan of lamb, unless it's grilled. But once in a while I do cook lamb dishes such as lamb curry for my family. In my opinion, this lamb curry taste more of a lamb rendang. But again, everybody has different recipes and different take on cooking so to each to it's own. I love that this lamb curry is not too spicy and it is so full of flavour. It feels like I can taste every part of the ingredients, it's good!
|Side dish | Chickpeas with Tomato Salsa|
Refreshing dish to compliment the meal
|Side dish | Butter yogurt|
Tangy and creamy, with the addition of onion. Perfect combo with the rice!
|Complimentary with any Ramadan meal|
