Named after one of Malaysia’s most recognised celebrity of the old days, dining at Saloma Theatre Restaurant takes one to a whole new gastronomic experience, where the food served is a showcase of flavours unique to the 14 states of Malaysia.
Although the food photos enclosed in this post are from the Malaccan Peranakan lunch set menu, and served in traditional tiffin carriers, patrons also have a choice of dishes from the restaurant’s à la carte menu for lunch and buffet for dinner, serving a wide variety of Malay international cuisine.
Every night from 8.30pm, diners get to enjoy an upbeat hour-long traditional and cultural performance by the 18-member Saloma Dancers, presenting a selection of the country’s rich cultural heritage.
Saloma Theatre Restaurant, jointly owned by Tourism Malaysia and Concorde Hotel, is located in a building along Jalan Ampang in the heart of Kuala Lumpur, that dates back to 1935, the year that Saloma was born.
This restaurant was named in her tribute for her contribution to the entertainment industry in Malaysia.
Saloma, who captured the heart of Malaysia’s foremost multi-talented artiste, P. Ramlee, and was married to him as his third wife, and also the hearts of millions of fans in the region, was born Salmah Ismail, in Singapore.
The epitome of a star, she received the National Celebrity Award (Anugerah Biduanita Negara) in 1979. Often referred to as the ‘Marilyn Monroe of Malaysia’, Saloma passed away in 1983 in Petaling Jaya, at the age of 48.
