Stepping into Cafe BLD at Renaissance Johor Bahru hotel is always an experience on its own and it is especially exquisite during the season of celebrations. Being mesmerised is an understatement because, with every step I take, I was greeted by the sight of food if not a whiff of aromatic dishes.

Assorted sushi that could be your appetisers and great conversation starters

Spoiled by over six hundred dishes offered, it can be hard for one to start. Fret not for here is where I could help you with.

For an ultimate buka puasa experience, opening your session with a bit of sour fruit would help as an appetizer – Evidently shown by the ability of my dine-in partner who was able to go through rows of food after dipping her fork into pineapple from the dessert aisle and Kerabu Sotong from the traditional vegetables and condiments section!

Seafood on Ice, best to eat prior to the much heavier meals

The Seafood on Ice galore is truly Cafe BLD’s speciality; you can either have them for an appetiser or main course. If raw ones are not your thing, the fried ones are just as fresh, ready to be picked up at the mixed rice station.

While you are scurrying for the fried goods, take some white rice, enjoy Kerutuk Kambing and Itik Salai Lemak to complete your plate. Not big on fried food? Head outside and check out the various seafood on the grill, whichever you fancy and don’t forget to pick up some good broth for comfort factor in your meal. The other end of the alfresco live cooking is the Indian cuisine section where I picked up fresh Naans with Achari Fish Tikka and delicious Chicken Korma.

Mixed rice section, a galore of lauks to get you going! The Rendang and Kerutuk Kambing are simply the best I have ever tasted in hotels

If replenishing protein is your goal, the carving section is your area. Salmon Coulibiac was my choice with creamy black peppercorn sauce and it was so pleasant, I returned for more and saved space for Smoked New York Beef Brisket and boiled garlic butter potatoes.

You could opt for lovely Seri Muka, or Kuih Lapis and if soup-like dessert is your favourite, Bubur Cha Cha would be the best choice!
