Wedding Dinner Package @ G Hotel Kelawai Penang

Henry Tan | 10:51 PM | | |
Finding a decent place for wedding dinner in Penang is not easy as there's simply too many options to choose from. Thankfully I got the chance to start my survey by trying out the wedding package at G Hotel Kelawai Penang. Yes, many people thought that it's happening soon and start asking when is the wedding. So, to answer to that question.... Start saving now for my Ang Pau money! Still got 4 years to go! =D

If this is the first time you got misleaded, read this (click here). LOL

To be honest, I did not expect for such a big response as my post normally doesn't get too much of attention. Well, on the bright side, at least now I know who would really care and also how much money I need to prepare for so many tables! LOL! But of course, I truly appreciate and thanks to those who take it as real and congratulated me. 

Wedding Dinner Package at G Hotel Kelawai Penang

Okay, so let's come back to my survey result on the wedding package in G Hotel Kelawai Penang. Frankly, I always prefer somewhere not too far away from the town as I would not want my guests to travel too far into some secluded area. So G Hotel Kelawai definitely is suitable, as it is strategically located in between of Gurney Plaza and Gurney Paragon Mall.

Wedding Dinner Package - Waiting to be served!
Unlike the Grand Ballroom in G Hotel Gurney that could accommodate up to 700 pax, G Hotel Kelawai could only host up to 120 pax with 12 tables. But as per expected, G Hotel Kelawai caters for the new generation with modern concept whereby the venue is filled with natural day light. There are two types of modern set wedding dinner packages, namely, "Sensual" and "Intimate". The one I had was "Intimate" package which costs RM1388 nett per table. (All packages require a minimum of 10 tables)

Sensual - 8 Course Wedding Dinner Menu
Opener - Four Hot & Cold Combination Platters
Soup - Braised Shark's Fin Soup with Eight Treasures
Poultry - Roasted Pi Pa Duck Combination with Strawberry Chicken
Prawns - Fried Shelless Prawns with Golden Salted Egg Yolk Sauce
Vegetables - Braised Kwei Fei Abalone and Fried Fish Mau with Broccoli
Fish - Steamed Cod Fish with Supreme Soya Sauce
Rice - Smoked Salmon Pineapple Fried Rice in Pineapple Boat
Dessert - Chilled Mango with Lychee Pop
Free flow of Chinese Tea and Soft Drink/Fruit Punch

The 8 courses menu are specially created by G Hotel Kelawai's experienced chef. If prefer to have something else other than the chef recommended, there's still a wide selection of food to choose from!

Wedding Dinner Package - Four Hot & Cold Combination Platters
We started off with the opener, which is Four Hot & Cold Combination Platters. We had Kerabu Mango with Crystal Dried Prawns as cold dishes, Crispy Coconut Prawn Roll as deep fried dishes, Baked Mussels with Cheese as baked and steamed dishes and Fresh Scallop with Macadamia Nuts as Stir-fried dishes. Personally I like the Crispy Coconut Prawn Roll where a whole prawn was wrapped in the roll. The roll was crispy and  fragrance with spiced grated coconut, taste something like those dried version of otak-otak from Muar.

Wedding Dinner Package - Braised Shark's Fin Soup with Eight Treasures
Another typical Chinese-Wedding-must-have dishes would be the Braised Shark's Fin Soup with Eight Treasures. The eight treasures are real shark fin, dried scallop from Japan, crab meat, sea cucumber, fish maw, fish lips, mushroom and bamboo shoot. I have to say that their broth was flavorful and the sweetness of the seafood was still intact, credit to the chef for his good simmering technique. One could easily smells it from far.

Wedding Dinner Package - Roasted Pi Pa Duck Combination with Strawberry Chicken
One of the signature dish by the chef would be the Roasted Pi Pa Duck Combination with Strawberry Chicken. Crispy roasted Pi Pa duck was served over Hoi Sin sauce while the chicken was served with a secret recipe strawberry sauce. The duck was carefully being butterflied by the chef prior to roasting to give it extra crispiness, meanwhile, the chicken was deboned and deep fried until crispy.

Wedding Dinner Package - Strawberry Chicken
I prefer the strawberry chicken over the Pi Pa duck for its uniqueness of using strawberry sauce. The strawberry sauce gave extra flavor of sweet and sour to the chicken, making it very appetizing

Wedding Dinner Package - Fried Shelless Prawns with Golden Salted Egg Yolk Sauce
Wedding Dinner Package @ G Hotel Kelawai Penang
Wedding Dinner Package - Fried Shelless Prawns with Golden Salted Egg Yolk Sauce
Any seafood goes with the golden salted egg yolk sauce will never fail, that makes this dish another mouth watering one! Since G Hotel Kelawai is going for the new generation, shell-less prawns is a must for the ease of the guest to savor. If is very strict or "pantang", the prawns could still be remained with head and shell upon request. But, like seriously, I would prefer my guest to enjoy eating easily without having to worry that their prawn would fly away. LOL

Wedding Dinner Package - Braised Kwei Fei Abalone and Fried Fish Mau with Broccoli
After seafood and poultry, it's time for some vegetable to make one feel less guilty. Braised Kwei Fei Abalone and Fried Fish Mau with Broccoli is another safe call. Standard dish for Chinese wedding dinner that comes with luxury abalone and fish maw. I like how they braised the broccoli just nice that the texture was not too soft or too hard. I like to eat the mushroom and fried fish maw as well whereby they were soaked with the broth.

Wedding Dinner Package - Steamed Cod Fish with Supreme Soya Sauce
Steamed Cod Fish was cooked with special supreme soya sauce, homemade by the chef. Again, similar to the prawn, the cod fish were already been cut nicely into few pieces. To truly appreciate the effort of the chef, all I have to do was just pick the fattest and juiciest, pour the sauce over the fish and eat. So easy without having to fear that my guest would be choked by the fish bone!

Wedding Dinner Package - Smoked Salmon Pineapple Fried Rice in Pineapple Boat
It would be a big mistake for anyone that skip this dish - Smoked Salmon Pineapple Fried Rice in Pineapple Boat. How often do you come across pineapple fried rice that would mixed with smoked salmon? Come on, Smoked Salmon wey! Even though the fried rice looked like the earthquake or avalanche, but trust me, it taste heavenly good! The dish was filled with the aroma of smoked salmon while the rice was buttery and not too dry. Small tiny cubes of pineapple add the sweetness too!

Wedding Dinner Package - Chilled Mango with Lychee Pop
No one should end a meal without a dessert and for those who crave for one, this is it - Chilled Mango with Lychee Pop. The sourish chilled mango comes with sweet vanilla ice cream plus the surprises from the lychee pop, I believe one could imagine how wonderful it would be to press them altogether in the mouth! It was not too sweet, a bowl of it just nice for us to go home with a happy stomach.

Wedding Dinner Package - Chef Ong, Executive Sous Chef
For this RM1388nett per table Intimate package:


Okay, so in term of budgeting (Erhem, as #yourfinancedoctor, of course I would need to do budgeting!), RM1388nett times 10 tables would sum up to RM13,880 for 100pax. I believe it is still consider affordable right? Per pax would be around RM138! What a prosperous number! XD

So now you know the 
minimum Ang Pau money you should give ya! 
LOL!

This price includes quite a number of things like the cake, champagne fountain, fresh flowers, one session of Danai Signature massage, complimentary one luxurious night stay at Executive room and complimentary fitness centre membership for 1 month. Oh wait! 1 month of fitness centre membership??? So that we could be fit physically before the wedding?! Wow that's so cool! 
(I'm sorry if I sound like a frog from the well, this was my first time of surveying >.<)
