Looking for a buffet that consist round the world delicacy? Heading to Eastin Hotel for it September International Buffet which consists of Indian Food, Italian Food, Nyonya Food, Japanese Food, Mediterranean Food…etc, I am sure you will find some great food there. On top of that Eastin Hotel has made their own Mooncake with their secret recipe for an affordable price as well, I will share with you at the bottom of this article.
Start our buffet with Thai healthy starter Thai Miang Kham, my all time favorite where dried shrimp, lemon, peanut, chili, fried coconut, ginger and onions mix together with sweet sauce and Kaduk Leaf. I use to enjoy Miang Kham at Khun De Thai Restaurant but sadly this Thai delicacy is no longer in their menu. Luckily I got the chance to eat it in Eastin Hotel, i truly enjoy eating the combination of fresh ingredients together with the sweet sauce, it taste sweet and sauteed with crunchy texture.
Follow by Classical Italian Creamy Tomato Soup which is extremely rich in flavor, well i should say it too rich and taste too sour for me but i still manage to finish a small bowl of it, i believe it will form a great combination with loaf.
Mediterranean Seafood Soup-Bouillabaisse with Baguette and Aioli, you must have not heard of Aioli sauce before right? Same here. Aiolo is actually a sauce made from Garlic, Olive Oil and Lemon Juice which taste sour and creamy, best to go with Baguette. While the Seafood soup contains of assorted seafood such as Fish, Prawn, Muscle and Squid which taste slightly fishy but acceptable.
French Lamb Stew A-la Mode, some people complain about lamb gamey taste but i think without the gamey taste it not lamb anymore. The French Lamb Stew i expect it to has strong Lamb gamey taste but i was wrong, they completely remove that taste which might make someone happy but not for me, i find it lack of something and the meat is slightly dry as well.
Let get into the earlier mention Mooncake, there is 6 flavors in total namely Red Bean RM17, Jasmine Cheesy Citrus RM18, Low Sugar White Lotus RM18, Precious Black Wolfberry Lotus Paste RM18, Pure Lotus Double Yolk RM20 and Supreme Mixed Nuts RM20.
Overall Mooncake taste very fresh and not too sweet, the best I had is Jasmine Cheesy Citrus which sound quite complicated with assorted flavor combine together but indeed it form a great taste and something unique. I bet you came across this taste before, give it a try and let us know whether it good or not. Mooncake is available at Hotel Lobby daily until 19 September 2013.
