Truth be told, one of the things we miss most during Ramadhan is having the opportunity to go for sungkei (breaking fast in local dialect) at a hotel. Not just that, but this is also usually the time we Malaysians of all races and religions join our Muslim friends as we break fast together at these hotels’ fine restaurants. It’s a time for us to interact and enjoy each other’s company while savouring delicious iftar food. While most restaurants are shifting to deliveries and takeout during MCO, here are some of the hotels in Sarawak that are offering special sungkei meals for you to enjoy at home.
Riverside Majestic Puteri Wing, Riverside Majestic Astana Wing, Grand Margherita
