Hotel Maya's Chef lets his experience loose in the kitchen

AFTER years of experience in the hotel industry, Malay Cuisine Chef Hasbullah Sabani, 37, at Hotel Maya can hold court on his own and he does just that for the hotel’s Ramadhan promotion.

Sweet delights: Various Nyonya kuih are also available at the buffet line.
Hasbullah has been to various parts of the world to learn and exchange cooking knowledge. Through his travels, he had the opportunity to learn to mix different cooking styles together.

He has been with the hotel for four years and, during his stint, has put his knowledge to good use by churning up mouth-watering dishes especially during Ramadhan.

Maya Brasserie is promoting an array of dishes from Nyonya to Indian to Malay and a Nyonya/Malay combination that suits the tastes of the various races in the country.

All set: Hasbullah putting some final touches to some of the dishes on the buffet line.
“The dishes are not too spicy, which will also be a welcome respite for foreigners who want to have a taste of Malaysia during this holy month,” Hasbullah said.

He has just returned from a chef's tour to Paris, organised by Tourism Malaysia.

Hasbullah added that Malaysia has got various spices, which gives him a free hand to make full use of them to create his culinary masterpieces.

One of his favourite experiments is the different ways he cooks salmon by experimenting with local spices.

Maya Brasserie can accommodate between 180-200 people and the Buka Puasa promotion is priced at RM65++ per person.

  • Hotel Maya Kuala Lumpur, 138 Jalan Ampang, KL (Tel: 03-2711 8866). Buka Puasa (daily from 7pm-10.30pm) until October 12.
