Dine like a Turkish royal at the Mandarin Oriental KL


March 10, 2017 | BY Jessica Liew

The exotic buffet takes you on a culinary exploration of Turkey’s signature dishes that highlight a love for robust flavours.

If your impression of Turkish food ends at kebabs and falafel, hop onboard a culinary discovery of the Mediterranean flavours at Mosaic, Mandarin Oriental, Kuala Lumpur, happening now till March 12, 2017.

Chef Berk Alpay and team has created a lavish buffet spread, beginning with starters of assorted Turkish cold appetisers like fava – mashed broad beans with dill and olive oil, Türk Peynir Aynasi – a traditional Turkish cheese platter, and warming soups spanning legume to fish bases.

A robust selection of main dishes feature highlights like the Piliç Topkapı – stuffed chicken leg with spicy rice pilaf, Tereyağlı Karides Güveç – shrimp casserole with butter, Tuzda Levrek – baked sea bass in salt crust and traditional oven-baked Turkish pide, or lavash bread.

Bring the experience to full circle with dazzling cakes and puddings. We recommend the Şekerpare – mini semolina cake coated in sugar syrup, Fırın Sütlaç – baked Turkish rice pudding, and the Ayva Tatlısı – baked fresh quince and grated apple in sugar syrup. Up for ice cream? Make a stop at the ice cream station where you’ll be recipient of an amusing ritual. 

The Turkish culinary journey is ongoing for lunch and dinner from now till March 12, 2017. Prices start from RM128 nett per person. For reservations, call 03-2179 8881 or email mokul-mosaic@mohg.com.
