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!

Three Hours City Tour At Ensenada, Mexico

A THREE HOURS CITY TOUR when we embarked in Mexico on the second morning.   My sister booked the three hours city tour in Ensenada, Mexico, a van came to pick us up from the port.  Ensenada is the border of Mexico and it reminds me of Hatyai, a border town too between Malaysia and Thailand.  We were taken to a shopping area where we must haggle for the goods.  LOL.. Yes, something common in my own country... Anyway, we did not buy anything for ourselves... just a wooden handmade truck for my grandson which cost $8usd.   Nothing much to shout about on this three hours excursion, I was so sleepy on the way back to the ship that I dozed off and only awaken when we were driven through the town.  All in all, I just wanted to step onto Mexican soil and I would give this a miss if I were to go on this Mexico cruise again.  LOL... At the open area shopping walking towards the Blowhole... This is La Bufadora Blowhole, an amazing natural marine geyser that is capable of shooting water over 60 fe

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....

Phil's Fish Market And Eatery, Moss Landing

DAY TRIP TO MOSS LANDING...  I did not know what to expect since I had not been there before.  We took an hour plus drive to this seafood place, it is an open air restaurant whereby you can dine by the sea or inside.  We chose the latter, since it was quite windy in the open air.  With a baby kid, it is best to have some warmth inside the restaurant. Yes, there was already a queue by the time we reached there, it was actually between lunch and dinner and yet, patrons were ready to have their meal.  Though the queue looked long, we could get a place within 10 minutes or so.   Almost the same picture but someone was looking at me when I took these...  Almost reaching the finishing line to enter ... Clam Chowder to start off...  Cioppino... A combination of seafood... Mussels, prawns, crabs, clams...  Eat what the fishermen eat... Dip the bread in the sauce... Yes, I like this... Fried chicken chunks...  And I still prefer the Cioppino compared to this....  Baby enjoying his own food befo
