Assorted Dates Fruit available and the one that I like the most is walnut dates, generously coated with walnut to give it a rich flavor.
Teh Tarik and Nescafe Tarik, not to miss Malaysia signature drinks. Normally we avoid Teh Tarik as it tends to be very sweet but since we are in Ramadan buffet we have to give it a try, no regret. We do have a cup of good Teh Tarik, not too sweet and very smooth to drink.
Assorted Sweet Drinks
Pickle & Keropok
Salad & Appetizer such as Petai, Pucuk Ubi Kayu, Ikan Masin, Telur Masin, Ulam, assorted fresh vegetable.
Kambing Panggang Gorek, highly recommend as it is the best lamb i try so far. Although it look to be very dry but inside it is so juicy and pack a punch of flavor. I am lucky to get the part with some fat which are even richer in flavor. Taking with mint make it taste even better, if you will to ask me back here just for lamb. Yes, i will!

We follow traditional way of eating Ramadan buffet which is to break fast by eating Dates Fruits first, 8 different type of dates available but we only manage to try 2 which are Tunisia & Safia, Tunisia is coated with a layer of sugar while Safia is dried on outer layer. Both are equally sweet and delicious to get start with.
Moving on to main dish counter, assorted traditional Malay cuisine such as Kacang Panjang Goreng, Sambal Taukua, Sotong Goreng Kunyit, Daging Rendang, Ikan Masak Lemak and many more dishes. Sotong Goreng Kunyit is my favorite as it has very strong Kunyit fragrance and it doesn’t has chewy texture.
Signature of the night is Kambing Golek, whole lamb is perfectly marinated and grilled to perfection. It has very strong flavor on skin and meat are extremely succulent, so delicious that i ate a few plate of it (small plate…).
Feel like just few months ago we went to Ramadhan buffet and so fast 2017 Ramadhan buffet is coming again. Starting from 28 May till 24 Jun 2017, Eastin Hotel has a very attractive dinner buffet to showcase Malay traditional cuisine and some signature dishes such as Gearbox soup, BBQ whole lamb, Laksa, Pulut & Lemang…etc that just so much awesome food.

We are really impress with the variety of “salad” which has local Malay cuisine influence such as Kerabu Ikan Masin (Salted Fish), Kerabu Mussels, Kerabu Petai…etc. Sourish and Saltiness is all about “salad” and it really help to boost our appetizer.
Beef & Chicken Satay, personally we found the satay to be a little bit too chewy.
