Deciding on where to eat can be very hard and choosing what to eat makes it even harder. But, if you feel like having seafood, look no further than Rimba where ILotus Restaurant has it all in one platter just for you.
Experience a flavourful Malaysian cuisine at the Rimba-based eatery as it is having an ongoing food promotion dubbed ‘Taste of Malaysia’ until end of the month.
Having the promo for the first time ever, owner and Managing Director of ILotus Restaurant Irene Hii said that they decided to come up with Malaysian cuisine due to its similarity in taste and flavours to Bruneians.
“We want to serve quality food to our customers and so we have a Malaysian chef to prepare the food. For the mixed seafood platter, it comes in three different sizes – small, medium and large. Small sized can cater to 2-4 people and they can order ala carte or side dish as well,” she said, adding that ILotus has always been known for its special cooking sauces that are made from scratch.
“Why platter because we want to make dining experience interesting as you get to share with your family and friends rather than having to eat separate meals… it feels more. We also try to make our food as healthy as possible, more steam and grill,” she added.
ILotus serves more than eight food items served on banana leaf placed in a woven rattan tray, giving a kampong feel and style to patrons while dining.
Some the food items that you are yet to savour with your family and friends include bamboo clams, steamed prawns, belacan sautéed squid and steamed crabs, among others and balanced the seafood rich taste with some local greens.
What make the food taste even better are the six dipping sauces that come with the platter namely green seafood sauce with garlic, seafood sauce with onions, seafood sauce with dried shallots, coconut sauce, grilled BBQ sauce and shrimp paste.
The platter is also served with two types of rice cooked in turmeric and butterfly pea extracts, giving the rice blue and yellow in colours which fresh ingredients are found around the garden of ILotus. To cleanse your pallete, their soup of the day complements everything.
Should you want to enjoy the seafood platter, do make your reservations one hour before heading for early preparations and less waiting time for you.
