New menu, and new GM – and with social distancing, please.
Hotel Maya’s new GM is Sharmini Moganasundram, who constantly emphasises to patrons at its F&B outlets that the new menu is value for money, with social distancing practices observed to ensure patrons are safe at all times while savouring the mouth-watering creations.
Yes, the F&B outlets at Hotel Maya has re-opened following uplift of certain movement control order (MCO) restrictions.
Her vision for the hotel is for it to embrace all aspects of “Malaysian hospitality”, and a place to great “memorable experiences”.
“Hotel Maya had been a popular destination with tourists from Europe, China and Southeast Asia pre-MCO,” said Sharmini.
“Then Covid-19 struck, and we had to ‘reset’ operations. Now with the progressive uplifting of MCO restrictions, we are making our comeback starting with our F&B outlets which have a large and loyal following among Malaysians.
“Hotel Maya is renowned for our F&B offerings from our four kitchens, with a selection of Malay, Cantonese, Japanese and Western cuisines,” she added.
“We have deliberately kept prices affordable so that guests may once again enjoy the ‘Maya Experience’ the hotel is renowned for.”
Sharmini explained that the set menu was created for patrons who prefer the flexibility of dining with more than two people.
“The set menus comprise a choice of an appetiser, soup, a few main dishes and a choice of one dessert,” she said.
Signature items include Japanese breaded tiger prawns, stewed Australian ribeye with miso paste, braised hot & sour Szechuan soup; braised duck with ginger and fresh Shiitake mushroom, creamy chicken with curry leaves and homemade spicy dried shrimp sauce, deep fried spicy seabass fillet with homemade plum sauce and shredded young mango, and supreme spicy soya sauce tiger prawns.
There’s also a selection of desserts such as chilled sea coconut with longan, double boiled dried pear with chrysanthemum, sea bird’s nest and white fungus with longan.
“Set menu options start from RM60 onwards for two people,” said Sharmini, adding that additional people would be charged from RM20 per person onwards. (All prices mentioned exclude prevailing taxes.)
