Eastin Hotel buffet theme for August is “Flavors of Malaysia”, in this month featuring on their buffet menu is Malaysia famous local foods such as Ayam Percik, Laksa, Ais Kacang…etc. All those famous local food can be found in Eastin Hotel Swez Brasserie.
Penang Famous Pasembur, it is a Malaysia style of Salad that consist of assorted vegetable such as potato, cucumber, turnip and bean sprouts, while on the main ingredients it consists of prawn fritters, spicy fried crab and spicy fried prawn. The taste of the Pasembur is sweet with mild seafood flavour, it has very great taste and crunchy texture.
Ayam Percik is one of the best dish we had throughout the buffet, chicken drumstick is deep fried then cook with Percik sauce, chicken meat is succulent and the Percik sauce help to boost up the flavour.
Johor Laksa, according to chef they select Johor Laksa instead of Penang Laksa because in Penang Laksa can be found anywhere while Johor Laksa is something special and rarely available in Penang. Johor Laksa taste very close to Malay Laksa where it not that spicy and sour compare to normal Penang Laksa but it still has very strong fish taste. Personally I still prefer Penang Laksa over Johor Laksa.
Nasi Hujan Panas is something new to me, it taste like fried rice but with more herbs in it.
Bubur Cha Cha is a traditional dessert that consists of Sago, Sweet Potato, Yam and colourful jelly. It cook with thick coconut milk, it not too sweet which match my liking and the strong coconut milk flavorr is just awesome.
Ais Kacang is a dessert that truly represent Malaysia. Shave ice top with red beans, sweet corns, grass jelly, palm seed and peanuts. Flavour with condensed milk and red rose syrup. It is extremely refreshing.
