The feasting journey moves on to a different beat with ‘celup-celup’ live station with skewers of fresh chicken, fish, squid, prawns, crab, for dipping in piping hot soup served with condiments.





“I like to infuse santan (fresh coconut milk), halia (ginger) and spices such as halba (fenugreek) into my recipes to enhance the dish and bring out the flavours that will recollect the memories of good old times,” Chef Zam comments. His recommendations for the promotion include some of his family heritage recipes that are also famous dishes synonymous to East Coast such as nasi dagang Terengganu with gulai ikan tongkol, nasi kuning with gulai ayam, laksa and mee rebus Terengganu.
