Bring Maya Meals Home
Hotel Maya Kuala Lumpur has recently launched their new one innovative dining menu, available in all their dining venues of Still Waters, Maya Brasserie and Ramah Tamah. After a two-month closure from our global pandemic situation, Hotel Maya has reopened for dine-in in alignment with social distancing guidelines since 10 June 2020.
The new affordable menu features signature items from local Malay and Chinese cuisine as well as Japanese, allowing diners to savor a medley of various flavours at their dining venues or at the comfort of their own homes and offices.
A visit to Still Waters recently had us checking out their set menu as well as some ala carte dishes. Still Waters, a pork free eatery, features Japanese cuisine fused with European and Asian flavours as well as contemporary Cantonese inspired cuisine by their talented Chef Meng, Chef Zainurin bin Mohd Salleh and culinary team.
From their ala carte innovative menu, a piping hot bowl of Braised Hot and Sour Szechuan Soup (RM20) hit all the right spot of warmness. Loaded with lots of shredded ingredients such as chicken, tofu, black fungus and other vegetables, the piquant hot and sourness of the soup was deliciously satisfying and whet our appetite for more. Other soups on the menu includes Soto Ayam with Bengali Bread, Crab Bisque and Hawaii Oxtail Soup with Parmesan Garlic Bread.
Appetizers of Wok Fried Shell-less Tiger Prawns with Butter, Golden Oat, Curry Leaves & Bird’s Eye Chilies (RM23) and Butter Squid with Salted Egg Yolk (RM28) proved to be scrumptious bites of umami flavours.
Both seafood crispy and coated with just the right amount of flavours that kicks in much addictiveness of pleasure. Even for a diner who do not enjoy prawn or squid, he found himself polishing off both appetizers happily…
The culinary team at Hotel Maya has perfected their signature dish of Malay favorites of Set Nasi Kerabu Bersama Ayam Goreng Berempah, Telur Masin, Kelapa Parut Ikan & Keropok Ikan (RM 18) and Set Nasi Tomato Bersama Ayam Masak Merah, Jelatah, Papadom & Sambal Belachan (RM18) to much deliciousness.
Not only does the Set Nasi Kerabu Bersama Ayam Goreng Berempah, Telur Masin, Kelapa Parut Ikan & Keropok Ikan looked utterly beautiful in presentation, the flavours and textures of every component of the dish worked harmoniously well. Beautifully tinted rice with blue pea flowers, tasty fried marinated ‘rempah’ chicken, grated coconut fish flakes with shredded cabbage, salted egg yolk and fish crackers along with two sambals had us tucking heartily into the dish. One sambal evokes robust sweetness while the other sambal kicks up a piquant bold hit of heat elevated the nasi kerabu to an explosion of flavours in the mouth… so shiok!
The next dish of Set Nasi Tomato Bersama Ayam Masak Merah, Jelatah, Papadom & Sambal Belachan is bound to be another crowd-pleaser. The tangy tomato flavoured rice goes very well with the rich tomatoey spiced ayam masak merah like a match made in heaven. Additions of a refreshing pickled pineapple, cucumber, onion and chili salad with crispy papadom pieces completed the balance essentials of a hearty one dish meal.
A Chinese classic, the Olive Vegetable Fried Rice with Shrimp, Fish & Golden Crispy Garlic (RM18) turned out deliciously well. The fluffy rice had a good breath of wok and is well studded with lots of shrimp and fish with preserved olive vegetable. Crispy garlicky bits gave the rice extra aroma and textures that made this dish worthy of an order.
The local menu also has other favorites such as Cantonese Style ‘Yin Yong’ Noodles, Wok Fried Glass Noodles, Maya Nasi Goreng and Crispy Egg Noodles with Fresh Water Prawns. Western, Japanese and Healthy Vegan as well as Gluten Free dishes are also available.
Hotel Maya’s new menu has three affordable set menus of Ixora, Hibiscus and Rafflesia Set Menus to cater to the different palates of diners. Ixora Set Menu is priced at RM60nett while the Hibiscus Set Menu is priced at RM80nett and Rafflesia Set Menu for is priced at RM100nett. These set menus start with a minimum order for 2 persons and additional person order is available from RM20 to RM40 respectively. Available for dine-in on weekdays (except public holidays) and daily delivery with last order at 7pm.
A preview of Ixora Set Menu includes a choice of appetizer with a soup and mains served with rice followed by a sweet ending of a choice of dessert.
Select one appetizer of Japanese Gyoza with Shrimp & Chicken or Grilled Japanese Shishamo Fish to start the meal with Japanese flavours. These Japanese bites are constant favorite in any Japanese meal.
The Double Boiled Old Cucumber Chicken Soup is simple but nutritious and nourishing as it helps to cool down the body heat. A good soup can really make a meal very satisfying, at least in the culture of the Chinese community.
A chef signature, the main dish of Creamy Chicken with Curry Leaves & Homemade Spicy Dried Shrimp Sauce was a creamy one. Laden with subtle hints of spices, the tender pieces of boneless chicken is perfumed with curry leaves and has a sublime rich aftertaste which goes well with steamed rice.
Stir Fried French Bean with Garlic and Crispy Silver Anchovies is sufficiently decent and makes a good balance to the rich chicken dish. Choice of Steamed White or Brown Rice is also available.
Enjoy a sweet ending of the set menu with your choice of one dessert of Fresh Fruit Platter or Deep-Fried Glutinous Rice Ball with Peanut Filling.
