The Ramadan month is upon us once again and it’s still hard to believe we’re already three months into 2023! While we hunt for the best Ramadan iftar (breaking of fast) offerings in town, there is a ‘new kid on the block’ that we’d like to introduce to all our foodie friends; ‘PappaGrill‘ Restaurant in Meru Raya, Ipoh.
PappaGrill is a stylish modern western restaurant owned by a husband-and-wife team who have 3 other outlets, the other two in Selangor since 2018. Having opened its doors here just short of 3 months, they are already getting a buzz and filling up tables with happy customers daily.
Situated next to the huge MacDonalds at Meru Raya, there is ample parking and the restaurant is clean with clean restrooms for guests. They even have a bright spacious upper level specially for private dining and events.
As for the food, they offer a ‘VERY LARGE’ Western style menu that includes a few local items with a twist. “We specialize in serving high quality grilled food and we focus on fresh ingredients, expert preparation, and a warm welcoming atmosphere. Come and check us out, we are ready to serve the people of Ipoh” says co-founder and Group Managing Director, Abdul Khalid Kamarudin who is also shortlisted for Malaysia’s Top E-commerce Merchant Awards 2023.
“ If you are looking for something a little bit different from the usual this Ramadhan, but still want some true Malaysian tastes, we offer Fusion western platters specially for the whole family” shares Khalid.
Whether you are looking for a quick bite to eat or a leisurely meal with friends and family, PappaGrill has something for everyone. From juicy Burgers (RM20 ++), Steaks (RM30++ ), Pastas (RM 16++) and even Nasi Lemak with a twist (RM15++)
This Ramadhan season, PappaGrill is serving up Mubarak Sharing Platters which is a great way to ‘break fast’ with family whilst sharing a smorgasbord of popular western & local dishes. Even if you are not fasting, anyone is welcome to come along and experience iftar.
Mubarak’ Sharing Platters for the season are for 2 people – 4 people sharing comfortably. The variety includes Pasta or Rice, Lamb, Beef, Chicken, Sausages, Wedges, Fries, and sauces. Each platter gets free drinks. Maharaja Platter– RM73.90 (2pax)/ RM 136.90 (4pax) and Kal’s Ultimate Set for 4 – RM226.50. These platters are huge and very satisfying to have all your favourites in one sitting.
They also serve ice-cream, desserts, fresh juices and the ever popular & nostalgic, “A&W Float” which is my all-time favourite! The quality of the ice cream determines the balance of creaminess and ‘ fizz’ in this root beer drink. Thankfully this was the best one since A&W’s original Root beer float!
Take your pick from an elaborate array of delicacies, global delights, and signature dishes, including salads, mains, desserts, and Ramadan juices. And be serenaded by traditional Arabic-style background music that will surely set the scene for an evening of fun and feasting.
Be sure to place your reservations early as most specialty restaurants get quite packed during the Ramadan month! And they are offering a 30% OFF delivery order for first time customers.
