Treat your dad to a well-deserved meal of steaming traditional halal dim sum specially prepared by renowned chefs at the Holiday Villa Hotel and Suites this Father’s Day.
The chefs with part of the buffet spread that is bound to make your dad happy.
Steal the keys to his heart by filling his stomach on an all-you-can-eat dim sum buffet for only RM45+ per adult and RM32++ per child, at Holiday Villa’s The Inn of Four Season Chinese Restaurant.
Located on the third floor, this restaurant serves the best of both worlds by blending both authentic Japanese delicacies and traditional Chinese dishes.
Be prepared to feast both your eyes and taste buds on over 120 delectable dishes lining up the buffet counter, from steamed and fried bite-sized dim sum to noodles, sushi and rice.
And just for Father’s Day, the chefs also want to make it a special day by introducing their specialty dishes like garlic based yam puff or also known as wu kok in Chinese.
Normally, these fried and crispy yam puffs are served at dim sum restaurants stuffed with meat, chopped shallots and mushroom cooked in brownish sauce.
However, at Four Season Chinese Restaurant, patrons can try out both the garlic based yam puff and Nyonya curry flavoured ones.
For the less adventurous, there is a selection of dim sum both fried and steamed in traditional bamboo containers, served with black sweet sauce and chilli.
In addition, the buffet will have three types of Chinese traditional cold cut dishes and six varieties of Chinese hot and flavourfully cooked dishes.
Those who would like a warm bowl of soup which replicates the ones boiled at home, try out their double boiled chicken soup with Chinese ginseng and fungus.
If you are one who misses the sweet soups boiled by your mums, this is one to try.
As part of the dim sum culture, what’s siu mai (shrimp dumpling) or hakau (shrimp wrapped in translucent white skin) without a serving of chee cheong fun (rice noodle roll).
Walk along the buffet line to reach the stall serving steaming hot rice noodle rolls, served with a choice of stuffing and chili flakes on a bed of soy sauce.
Not forgetting the Chinese turnip/carrot cake, fried to a crisp, usually made of shredded radish and plain white flour.
If you are still hungry, make your way towards the Japanese section serving ramen noodles and cold soba.
Also stop by the Tepanyaki counter and ask for a serving of beef, chicken or vegetables seasoned and cooked to perfection on an iron plate.
To add on more taste, scoop yourself a bowl of garlic fried rice to accompany your Tepanyaki dishes, before heading back to the table.
Complete your Japanese food journey with a serving of sushi, California roll and an assortment of tempura, a choice of fried prawn, vegetables and sweet potato.
If all these isn’t tempting you enough, detour down to a Father’s Day Brunch at Palm Terrace Coffeehouse to enjoy a sumptuous buffet meal featuring international and local delights.
The buffet, priced at RM58++ per adult and RM35++ per child will tantalise your taste buds with an array of favourites like pasta, fried rice, curry and seafood.
While you are there, try out their specialty dishes such as spaghetti aglio olio with clams, young mango fried rice, fish vindaloo, stir fried beef, deep fried enchi kebin and sausage fire crackers.
Meanwhile, their dessert corner features sinful sweet stuff like air batu campur, fresh fruits and five selections of ice creams.
