Chinese New Year Buffet @ Eastin Hotel Penang

Food Presentation

It had been years since we last visited Eastin Hotel Penang (GPS: 5.33639,100.30639). We recently re-visited this business hotel at Bayan Lepas, Penang for a Chinese New Year buffet review session.

Lotus Leaf Fried Rice w. Smoked Turkey & Shrimp

Chinese New Year signifies spring and it is an occasion for reunions with family and friends. This year’s Chinese New Year Reunion Buffet Dinner at Eastin Hotel Penang will be an exceptional dining experience for guests. The array of buffet dishes are carefully selected to showcase the best authentic and luxurious Chinese dishes to cater to those celebrating Chinese New Year during this session.

Yook Poon

Poon Choi

Steam Broccoli w. Fatt Choy & Dried Oyster

Our recent visit to its CNY buffet dinner preview session was an eye-opener, proven by a prominent blogger who booked his reunion dinner on the spot. From the dishes presented during preview session, there is no surprise that one will make reservation for his/her family. For instance, Poon Choi, Yook Poon, and Steam Broccoli with Fatt Choy and Dried Oyster are already worth the buffet price. Who could expect a Poon Choi to appear in buffet line?

Smoked Salmon Platter

Baby Octopus Salad

Double Boiled Chicken Broth w. Red Dates & Herbs

Assorted Sushi w. Condiments

Their appetizers are not letting us down as well with aromatic Double Boiled Chicken Broth with Red Dates and Herbs, Smoked Salmon Platter, Baby Octopus Salad, Assorted Sushi with Condiments to name a few.

If the Smoked Salmon Platter is not enough for you, go for Sashimi.

Braised Herbal Duck

Steam Seabass Fillet "Teochew" Style

Not to be missed are some authentic Chinese hot tray dishes, including Steam Seabass Fillet “Teochew” Style and Braised Herbal Duck.

Homemade Gravlax

Baked Salmon Fillet w. Garlic Herbs Butter

Fried Chicken w. Tonkatsu Sauce

For young generation like us, we prefer something out of ordinary such as Fried Chicken with Tonkatsu Sauce, Baked Salmon Fillet with Garlic Herbs Butter, and Homemade Gravlax. Among them, we strongly recommend Homemade Gravlax.

Baked Lamb Provencal

Who could expect the usually-gammy lamb tasted as good as roasted BBQ chicken. Yes, the Baked Lamb Provencal really tasted like chicken.


Seafood on Ice

Last but not least (even though we strongly recommend you grab them at the start of the buffet), seafood on ice. As a whole, kudos for chefs from Eastin Hotel Penang with their authentic Chinese cuisine at unbeatable price.
