Kambing Golek Beratur Panjang (Roast Whole Lamb)
Gearbox Soup (beef bone marrow soup)
Right off the bat, one would notice the sheer variety of food being offered at Eastin’s ramadhan buffet. The star of the show would definitely be the impressive Roasted Whole lamb as most diners immediately made a beeline for this dish. I enjoyed the roasted lamb with some nasi briyani with a touch of Kerabu Telur Masin.
The Gearbox Soup was hearty and satisfying, as were most of the mains which include dishes like Ikan Tenggiri Gulai Kampung, sweet sour flower crab, ayam masak merah and more.

Assorted kerabu & salads

Pulut & Lemang (with serunding) – something I can never say no to!

Penang Curry Mee (from the Noodle Station)
The desserts section whets one’s appetite too with a variety of cakes, assorted Malay kuih, chocolate fondue, fruit platters and an interesting Egyptian dessert – Um Ali (which is similar to bread pudding). Coffee, tea and drinks are also available self service next to the ice cream station.
Um Ali (traditional Egyptian dessert)
Similar to bread pudding, I enjoyed this dessert as I found the addition of pistachio nuts a lovely touch!
Coffee, Tea, Drinks & Ice cream corner
Some dinner entertainment… the soothing sounds of Eastin’s new lounge band – Venus Combo
All in all, Eastin Hotel Penang’s Kembara Desa buffet offers plenty of variety that would appeal to a diverse range of palates.
