Ramadan is on the horizon once again and Best Western i-City Shah Alam is all set to wow you with a delicious Ramadan buffet at their restaurant, The View Cafe (located at Level 5 of the hotel) from 7.00 p.m. to 10.00 p.m. nightly, starting from 18 May 2018 to 12 June 2018.

Reflecting a globalised yet homely Malaysian feel, the buffet is aptly named "Juadah Malaysia to the World". It's centred upon the spirit of family and togetherness, and to help set the tone, there will be tropical coconut-themed specialties and live music nightly.
The View Cafe dining room
I had the pleasure of attending its review this week and the spread that greeted me at The View Cafe was nothing short of impressive. According to the hotel and restaurant management, the buffet will feature around 200 dishes across a 7-day rotation, so there will be something different each day and surely something for everyone. There were buffet stations both inside the restaurant as well as outside on the garden patio.
Al fresco garden patio
Yes, the garden patio. The restaurant extends out to an al fresco garden patio which overlooks the colourful i-City Theme Park. And if you know i-City, you know how the Theme Park and its surroundings light up at night, so it should be a dining experience that's a treat for both your taste buds and sight.
Speaking of sight, feast your eyes on these pictures I snapped of some of the main dishes:
According to the press release they handed out, the daily menu (with selected dishes on rotation) will feature the following items:
Roasted Whole Lamb
Briyani Rice | Tomato Rice | Nasi Minyak (1 type per day)
Chicken and Beef Satay with Condiments
Kuey Tiaw Tomato
(2 types on daily rotation)
Spaghetti | Macaroni | Penne
Melaka Satay Celop
Yong Tau Foo
Char Kuey Tiaw | Mee Mamak (1 type per day)
Dipping sauces: Chilli, Tomato, Thai Sauce, Condensed Milk
Roti John Berinti
ABC with Condiments
Cendol with Condiments
That's a lot, right? But guess what? We haven't reached the end of the list yet. Not kidding, there's more! But before I go on, let's take a look at a few other pictures I took of the dessert, fruit and acar sections:
OK, back to the list:
5 types of Malay Kuih
Chilled Sago with Coconut Milk | Longan Almond Pudding
Bread and Butter Pudding | Warm Chocolate Cake
Ice Cream with Condiments
5 types of French Pastries
Assorted Mousses and Jellies
4 types of Cut Fruits
3 types of Whole Fruits
2 types of Sweet Porridge
Selection of Homemade and Local Breads
10 types on daily rotation
4 types on daily rotation
End of List
Phew! Talk about a long list. They weren't kidding when they said it was extensive!
So anyway, as you can see, there's a ton on offer. So if you'd like to savour this sumptuous buffet to the fullest, come on an empty stomach and eat to your heart's content.
For the sheer size of the menu, I think this buffet offers really good value at the following prices:
Early Bird Promotional Price: RM89.00 nett per adult (if you book before 25th April 2018)
Regular Price: RM109.00 nett per adult (if you book after 25th April 2018)
Child and Senior Citizen Price: RM59.00 nett each

If you're going to Best Western i-City Shah Alam for the first time, I would recommend using Waze. It could get a bit tricky at night because there isn't really a clear sign pointing towards the hotel, and you could end up next door at i-SoHo... like me! So use Waze, OK?
Anyway, the "Juadah Malaysia to the World" buffet should provide a delectable treat for Muslims breaking fast as well as everyone else wishing to partake in the lush feast. With a spread so lavish and at such a great value, response is expected to be really good. So call 03-5521 9000 today and book early to avoid disappointment (or email firstname.lastname@example.org).
