The Holy month of Ramadan is approaching us so close and with just a blink of eyes, it's just few days away. This is the month of fasting for Muslims which will continue for 30 days. When it's time to break fast (buka puasa), it is always better to get together with everyone, the more the merrier! This time around, Checkers Cafe at Dorsett Regency Hotel, Kuala Lumpur will be having an interesting Ramadhan buffet themed "Selera Bersama Jaafar Onn" that will be featuring the famous and talented Celebrity Chef Jaafar Onn with renowned singer Haiza.

Apart from the Hazelnut Chocolate Pudding, Bread Butter Pudding, Bubur Nangka, Bubur Kacang Hijau Berdurian, Pulut Mangga, Banana Pudding, Serawa Pisang, various selection of Malay kuih and Nyonya kuih, the Kek Budaya would be my favorite for the night! The Kek Budaya Dorsett is the new cake creation of Dorsett Regency Hotel, Kuala Lumpur, layered with vanilla sponge, homemade fermented glutinous rice and royal custard filling is best to served chill. Though I really do not know what to expect on how it taste, but it is really something! Surprisingly good and love the jelly texture of it.
