Nyonya Buffet Dinner held at Terrace Bay Restaurant.
Spacious environment with nice and proper layout. Although it might look a bit old but it is very comfortable dining inside, you may opt to sit poolside for outdoor seating.
Let get start with appetizer, Pickle Cucumber and Pineapple
Mango Salad, extremely appetizing starter where crunchy mango mix well with onion to create the sweet and sourish taste.
Mixed Vegetable Pickle (Acar Awak), assorted fresh vegetable marianted and top with sesame seed which has a little bit of spicy taste.
Laksa are Penang signature dishes that should not be miss, a mixture of assorted vegetable served with fish soup which taste spicy and sour.
Deep Fried Chicken, we found the deep fried chicken to be a little bit dry and cold. It will be good if they can serve less and refill more frequent to maintain the crispy texture.
Stir Fried Vegetable
Fish in Fermented Soy Bean Sauce, deep fried whole fish and served with soy bean sauce, it has very strong soy bean sauce which goes well with steamed rice.
Sambal Prawn is my favorite dish as it has very strong sambal fragrance and the small prawn has very crunchy texture. Yummy!
Jiu Hu Char is a must for Nyonya cuisine, a very famous dish that commonly found in Poh Pia as well. Huge amount of dry cuttlefish added to create the seafood fragrance, it is very delicious.
Curry Chicken, strong curry fragrance with tender texture, love the curry aroma very much.
Kiam Chai Ark, very surprising dish as I never saw this dishes in buffet line before, although this is a very famous dish but hardly can get in hawker stall or restaurant. I love the strong taste of salted vegetable, spices, tomato and fresh duck meat.
Chicken Lobak, surprise by the succulent chicken meat and crispy skin, instead of deep fried whole Lobak they cut it into small pieces and deep fried to perfection to create the crispy texture, Opps…we took more than 4 full plate of Chicken Lobak.
Jiu Hu Char in cup, yummy. One of our favorite snack.

Pulut Tai Tai and Kuih Talam definitely signature Nyonya dessert, great use of coconut milk to create this delicious dessert.

Bubur Cha Cha is a mixture of assorted sweet potato cook in coconut milk, it has the crunchy texture of sweet potato with sweetened coconut milk.
