Nothing beats home-cooked food for buka puasa, but not everyone has that luxury of doing so, as some of us are living alone in the Klang Valley with little time to prepare a meal. Even if you’re living with family here, why not give yourselves a break and bring the family out for a special iftar meal?
Contrary to popular belief, not everything is expensive in town. Here are some budget-friendly and yummy options you can try out:
1. The Manhattan Fish Market
The Manhattan Fish Market recently introduced their Sharing Bersama-sama Special with six amazing sharing platters. The portion is enough to feed at least three people and they’re priced at RM57.90 or RM67.90 each. Choose from the traditional all-seafood battered platter, sambal-spiced dory fish with lamb stew, or ones that come with spaghetti and rice.
2. IKEA Restaurant
For just RM40 per adult, you’ll get to enjoy a Malaysian-Swedish buffet at the IKEA Restaurant! The buffet will be available from now until 21 June 2017, from 7-9 pm daily (till 10 pm on weekends). Be sure to buy your buffet tickets early as there are only 150 seats available.
