Chinese New Year 2022 Banquet & Takeaway @ Eastern & Oriental Hotel, Penang

Eastern & Oriental Hotel brings us cheer and prosperity this year of the Tiger with an array of Banquet set menus, buffets and mouth watering take away options to fit young and old for Chinese New Year.

We had the opportunity to have a sit down dinner to try out the Banquet set menu, and were also given a peek at their take away options.

The must have for CNY – Yee Sang

3 different types of Yee Sang are available – Fresh Salmon Yee Sang, Fresh Salmon & Sliced Abalone Yee Sang & Thai Style Yee Sang

There are 3 banquet menus available:-

  1. Happiness Menu @ RM188++/person
  2. Abundance Menu @ RM288++/person
  3. Prosperity Menu @ RM388++/person

**Minimum 12persons, 10days advance booking required.

We tried the Abundance Menu which kicked off with the Fresh Salmon & Sliced Abalone Yee Sang to ‘lou hei’. Followed by the Double Boiled Sea Treasure Herbal Soup.

Double Boiled Sea Tresaure Herbal Soup

Dried Scallop, fish maw, sea cucumber and chinese cabbage

E&O Signature Roasted Duck

One of my favourite roast ducks in town, hands down!

Steamed Garoupa Fish

With Premium soya sauce and garden greens

We thoroughly enjoyed this dish because the soya sauce had a wonderful fragrant aroma and the fish meat was meaty and robust.

Wok Fried Broccoli with Hericium Mushroom

Fatt Choy, sea cucumber and sea asparagus

Golden Fried King Prawns

Salted eggs & curry leaf

The Golden Fried King Prawns was another winner with the salted egg flavour permeating subtly without being too overpowering. The curry leaf lent a nice kick to the dish.

“Hong Kong” Style Ee Fu Noodles

Prawn, sea cucumber and crab meat gravy

This was a heartwarming dish to round off the mains. A lil addition of black vinegar elevated the dish and suited my palate.

Special Home Made Chendol Cake

Herbal Chicken with Ginseng (With fried rice wrapped in lotus leaf) RM138

Roasted Pei Pa Duck RM118

Assorted CNY Cookies – my favourite is the Pineapple Tart
