Reminiscing the Singing Legend Dato’ Sudirman Arshad during Ramadan at Eastin Hotel Petaling Jaya
Last night I dropped by to attend a ramadan tasting and it was keep to the taste at their best, I got to pen down here as a pure statement that I like their Patin fish cooked in fermented durian sauce. The smell can be not appealing to some but the taste and flavour was definitely my thing. I am suckes for strong flavour dishes. Their Deep fried garoupa fish coated with water pple salad was damn interesting and the present of Asian hrebs boosted up the whole fish dish, defintely my thing.
Now with the forthcoming holy month of Ramadan, Eastin Hotel Petaling Jaya is preparing for the “Berbuka Puasa” buffet dinner at Swez Brasserie. Tthis year, Eastin is proud to present ‘Lagenda Sudirman’ as part of its Ramadan specials.

From time to time, the Hotel aims to introduce various food promotions to provide guests with a new dining experience. Last year, the hotel hosted ‘Nostalgia P.Ramlee” and this year, they will be organizing ‘Lagenda Sudirman’ to continue the effort in promoting Malaysia’s myriad of art and cultural heritage as well as exotic cuisines. Dato’ Sudirman Haji Arshad is one such icon in our heritage. He is not only recognized in Malaysia but also in and around this region. The holy month of Ramadan is the perfect time for us to acknowledge him and his contributions to our nation’s performing arts and the music industry.
