When it come buffet Eastern & Oriental Hotel Sarkies always our first choice, during the Ramadhan Month 2016 buffet (6 June – 5th July 2016) price at RM133 nett for adult and RM60.95 nett for child. The buffet served with signature dishes such as roasted whole lamb, snow crab on ice and many other great dishes. As usual we are surprise by the great variety offer throughout the buffet line and during Ramadhan month they even extend the buffet to have more item such as traditional kuih, somtam, satay, grilled whole lamb, teh Tarik…etc. It is certainly interesting to dine in E&O buffet.
Make it local by add in sambal instead of typical dressing, Thousand Island, Mayonnaise is boring. Sambal that is signature sauce that added to local salad which taste extremely spicy but trust me, it is very addictive.
If you are duck lover like I do then you must not miss the Roasted Duck, it is one of the best roasted duck I have among the many Hotel buffet I had, it is even comparable to road side hawker stall. Duck meat is perfectly marinated to flavor and roasted to flavor, meat is juicy and flavorful. If you are not into duck then try the roasted chicken or roasted beef.
Ok, my bad. When I try to elaborate on how fresh the snow crab is I just realize I forgot to take photo of it. Big Mistake! Anyhow, I hope from this photo you can see on the top right corner there is a few snow crab hiding behind. Yes, that is the fresh snow crab that I eat 2 full plate, it is so delicious. Same goes for prawn, mussel and crab that all served fresh on ice.
Should I go to Dessert counter next? Yes, huge range of dessert available. Some traditional Malay Kuih are on the dessert line as well, on top of that assorted sponge cake, cheese cake, tart, jelly are all available.
Fruits! My love! I always fill up two big plate of fruits before starting my buffet, this is to ensure I am not eating too much food, fruits are easy to digest and full of fiber that help on digestion. Assorted fresh fruits available here and I like the big cut, instead of small pieces that I need to spend lot of time taking, big chunk save my time. Our Malay friends will start buka puasa by eating dates first and dates are provided as well.
Wait, what is that? Is that grilled whole lamb? Wau, it is very interesting to see roasted lamb and the best part they will slice when you request which mean it served HOT! Taking with mint sauce is just yummy.
Grilled Station is always my favorite, at here you can get grilled salmon, chicken, lamb, sausage and fish. All are nicely grilled to perfection and the most important is the dipping sauce that taste sweet, sour and spicy which goes well with grilled meat.
