My local adventures brought me to Ipoh the other day for a staycation over at WEIL Ipoh. Since I was already staying over at the hotel, I took the chance to taste some of the local delicacies at their Citarasa Utara Ramadan Buffet. Held in the hotel, at their restaurant TIFFIN, the Ramadan buffet will run from 7 June to 4 July 2016. My writeup on the hotel room and facilities will be in my subsequent writeup, but for now, enjoy the feast for your eyes, and our tummy, below.

Tables all set for you to buka puasa for the evening
TIFFIN, WEIL Hotel offers a rather extensive array of cuisine, where you'll be spoilt for choice when picking your noms. Savour on their delicious Iftar menus, while surrounded by family and friends. The hotel itself is really clean and modern, being very new in town. Love how the decor is done, with high ceilings and ample lighting, which is important as I always want to be able to see what I'm eating.

The buffet consists of the finest northern cuisine with live cooking stations as well as a variety of international dishes. Shown above are the satays, Sambal Udang dengan Petai, and Bubur Lambuk, some of the dishes which I 'attacked' first that evening.
