The Mediterr-Asian Nasi Ambeng spread (from $50) also comes with seafood from the ice counter, items from the carving station and a tapas station.
And here's the fun part: You'll also get Maggi goreng cooked a la minute.

The satay nasi lemak set with homemade peanut sauce ($5.90), cendol Melaka ($2.50) and air limau selaseh ($2.50) will be available till July 15. This is on top of its usual items.
