Our Buffet Dinner At Eastern & Oriental Hotel, Penang

My Penang trip posts are far from over yet... Looking back, my buffet dinner at E & O have yet to be posted up. Unfortunately the pictures did not turn out very well and thus not doing much credit to the food. Nevertheless, from the publicity, the buffet at this prestigious hotel is one of the best in Penang island and I readily agree it is indeed so.

If I were to go for this buffet again, I would make sure to take a light meal only in the morning and then leave the rest of the space for the dinner buffet... hahahaa....  speaking from a "kiasu auntie"....
Initially it was quite deserted...
Cos we went in quite early.. before 7.30pm...
Sections near to our table...
 Auntie "eyeing" this section at the very start....
Kiasu auntie taking her first round of food......
My first round....
By now...forgotten how many rounds already...
Still attacking the first section....
Sometimes we took more to share....
Like the baked oyster and the grilled octopus...
Fruits corner...
In the midst of it, we came out to take a breather...
(Digesting food time)
Then we re-entered again.... 
Sarkies Corner...
 
Went round one more time to see what else worth eating...
And we were told that these crayfish just came in....
The cook said.. "Try this.. you will come back for more...."
Yes, we did.... they were indeed very fresh.....

Then after some ice cream pancakes and ice kacang...
we were more or less.... "FULL" liow....
Our FULL stomach smiles....
ie. before the Bill came....
hahahaaa...

  6. Lovely food Reana! :)

    I like the second last picture - that's a slipper lobster right? It's like a Moreton Bay Bug but caught over here or in surrounding waters, it's actually pretty good. I like them as much as regular lobsters.

  12. I saw all the delicious food and I surrender because I know if I stuffed myself because of kiasu, then at night sure will suffer because of over eating so not going for buffets now. Your stomach very keng! Can fit in so much food that night when usually you are a small eater. :D

  13. OMG.....if cannot afford to stay there maybe can buy their buffet meal. ahhahah

  14. Wakakakaka!!! You are so humble to call yourself a Kiasu Auntie! I would never dare to call myself Kiasu Uncle.
    I studied at St Xavier's for 11 years and saw E&O Hotel everyday at the front and the famous Cheong Fatt Tze Mansion on my left, through the classroom windows. I love how they have refurbished the hotel to its majestic world class now as it was sadly neglected for many decades. That hotel even invited my parents who are well known ballroom dancers to hang out at their dance hall everyday with unlimited free drinks!! Now my mum is bedridden. Sobs!

Chinese New Year Reunion Dinner At San Jose 2022

TABLE FOR FOUR... We had our own reunion Chinese New Year dinner on Monday evening.... we made a simple one, just hot pot at home.  All we have to do is to clean the vegetables, get everything defrosted... and the hot pot boiling with a packet of seasoning.  They sell a lot of hot pot seasoning over here, from tomato soup to shrimp and chicken soup, I just threw in the whole packet of paste.  No doubt not so healthy but it is so easily done....  As usual, Chinese New Year won't be CNY without a plate of Loe Sang...  No crackers so I put in a few pieces of Tacos... LOL... Most important is the sauce....  The apricot, plum sauce and honey makes it right.... And our dishes for the evening..... We ate too much shrimps the day before so we omitted for this evening.... Simple and yet satisfying meal for our Reunion Dinner....

My White Elephant

WHITE ELEPHANT.... still laying on my table for two months I think....   My friend groomer is not free these days, my poor Labby badly needs her hair cut and leaving no choice, I ordered the grooming shaver online.  I thought it would be easy to install the shaver to the appliance and till today, I am still at my wits end on how it is fixed.  My friend gave me a tip... check out the Youtube, she said.  Yeah, how come I did not think of that.....  But till today, I have not even touched it and my poor furry member will have to wait till this Mama has her right mood to do it.   My own hair also badly needs a hair cut and with the high Covid cases each day, I guess I have to tolerate for another month with my unruly hair..... or perhaps I can make use of this clipper on myself before I use it on my furry member!  LOL.... Crazy me! Still standing nicely on the table....  Still looking at the gadgets.... and not doing anything about them... I am happy with this dish....  Better looking afte

Two Dishes One Soup Dinner

AUNTIE'S SIMPLE COOKING... for dinner on one evening.... Defrosted a piece of cod, my last piece in the freezer besides another few more pieces of other types of fish.  I think I consume the most fish this year, never bought so many types of fish before.  Maybe it is made easier for me this year cos of the online shopping at Gracious, cleaned, vacuumed and free delivery above RM50.   My last piece of cod.... A plate of greens called Yau Mak...  Not so sure what it is called in English And chicken herbal soup....  My complete meal for one evening....  As usual, I do not take much rice... Or perhaps I did not take rice at all for this meal....  LOL...
