Ramadhan 2016 Buffet at Eastern & Oriental Penang

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.

Sang Nyuk Mee at 金沙园生肉面Kedai Kopi Melanian

Walking around Kota Kinabalu for more than 30minute and cannot decide what to eat. Consult a taxi driver what food is the best in town and he recommend金沙园生肉面Kedai Kopi Melanian. Without thinking much, we just say Yes and ask him to fetch us there, the taxi driver really a nice person. 金沙园生肉面Kedai Kopi Melanian located just next to main road.


Hot Chili Paste is extremely great, very spicy.

Local people call it as Sang Nyuk Mee 生肉面, I not sure why because pork is well cooked instead of Shashimi.
We had pork mix noodle plate RM6.50 each, the soup is not taste like Penang or BM Yam Rice which has sour taste instead this is more toward savor taste with strong fresh meat flavor.
Ingredient inside this plate is pork liver, intestine, meat and pork ball with vegetable.

Additional order Tofu with Fish Paste Stuffing served with pork skin, it is so delicious and believe me this plate is just not enough.

Noodle use is slightly different as well, it texture almost the same as our yellow noodle but slightly fatter and soft. I like the mix of bee hun and noodle which gave a better texture.

Overall it taste very good and highly recommended to try it out.

Grilled Prawn at Sungai Pinang Food Court

Sungai Pinang Food Court is another big food court that located just next to Jelutong express highway, very crowded on every night due to the huge range of hawker food variety. Almost all the famous hawker food in Penang can be found here and so far what I try out is all above average with reasonable price.

Pork Yam Rice, the soul of a bowl of Pork Yam Rice is definitely the Chili, but sadly this stall Chili is not the ordinary Yam Rice Chili which come together with dark sauce which is rather disappointed. Next important thing is the sour soup which must has a lot of salty vegetable flavor and they did success on this portion where the soup is sour and tasty, very refreshing. Inside the refreshing soup is pig liver, heart, blood, meat and meat ball together with few pieces of Tofu, overall it taste good except the disappointed Chili.

Side dish come next, Popiah or I should call it Penang Popiah because Penang Popiah without bean sprout which always taste better for us. A thin skin which made from wheat flour wrap jicama, tofu and vegetable with sweet sauce and roll it. The taste for this Popiah is normal because the skin is a little thick.

Claypot Rice, a small clay pot fill with rice, salty fish, chicken meat and egg garnished with spring onion, cook with dark sauce. The rice will be stick to the clay pot and that the delicious portion, this claypot rice taste just normal due to the minimum dark sauce and flavor.

One of the Penang famous food is grill fish aka Ikan Bakar and the famous stall is always 东海岸烧鱼. We ordered stingray and prawn, the stingray is very delicious with the chili paste use to grill and accompany with the home sauce chili sauce which is sour and spicy which is just right for the meat, the chili is so tasty that we end up asking for 3 more plates. Portion is big and definitely more than enough for two person which cost us RM14, it slightly more expensive than other stall but since it was so tasty so I consider well worth the value.

Prawn is very big and fresh, chili powder was use while grilling to overcome the plain flavor, the chili powder did add a lot mark to the overall taste. RM4 each which consider cheap compare to Nasi Kandar that normally cost RM6 or above.
