Chinese New Year Buffet Dinner 2017 @ Eastin Hotel Penang

Henry Tan | 5:02 PM | |
2 more weeks to Chinese New Year 2017, have you decided where to go for family reunion dinner or Chinese New Year dinner? If you are too lazy to cook at home, Eastin Hotel Penang definitely is the answer of your problem! After 4 years of food review at Eastin Hotel Penang since 2013, I think it is safe to say that this year buffet dinner is the best!

Chinese New Year Buffet 2017




To be frank, buffet dinner can be quite boring as the dishes are almost the same across all different restaurants. But this year, Eastin Hotel Penang surprised me with their Emperors Twin Dome - Poon Choi (盆菜) and Yook Poon (肉盆)! Absolutely sumptuous!

Yook Poon (肉盆) which means a big bowl full of assorted meats such as roasted chicken, steamed chicken, roasted lamb and so on. Meanwhile, Poon Choi (盆菜) was filled with all the luxurious, highly valued ingredients such as abalone, fish maw, sea cucumber, scallop, dried oyster, mushroom and so on. Definitely worth the price you pay for the buffet dinner!

Since 2017 is a year of rooster, Eastin Hotel Penang was thoughtful enough to decorate the Huat Ahh! Giant Yee Sang accordingly to the Chinese Zodiac that comes with a golden egg as well! Yee Sang comprises of delectable condiments and dressing such as tasteful pickled items, fresh salmon slices, crushed roasted peanuts with toasted sesame sees, flavored with 5-spice powder, accompanied with red salted ginger, Chinese plum sauce and added with crackers for an extra crispy texture.

This year, Eastin Hotel Penang also added Eastin Lobster Wok into their scrumptious array of buffet dinner. The fiery red curry lobster smells so tempting that I could literally mouthwatering while "raining" on the outside just by looking at it. I can't agree more with Justin Chew, General Manager of Eastin Hotel Penang, that it would be perfect if there's Banggali Bread to go with the curry gravy.

All the typical offerings such as salads, Japanese food and seafood on ice are all available at the buffet dinner. This time, Eastin Hotel Penang offers new item for Sashimi at Japanese corner such as the surf clams which I rarely see it at any buffet dinner. Even though I am a seafood lover, but I was too fascinated by the Poon Choi and Yook Poon that I didn't touch seafood on ice at all! 😁

Among all the main dishes available, we like the Fatt Choi Scallop Meat Yee Foo Noodle and Baked Whole Fish with Thai King Sauce the most! The Yee Foo Noodles was soaked with the rich gravy which contains all the sweetness from the scallop that makes it delicious. Meanwhile, the baked whole fish was well seasoned and texture of fish was just nice, moist and tasty. The Thai King Sauce was worth noting as it add some spiciness to the fish!

For dessert, Eastin Hotel Penang also specially prepare glutinous rice ball and dried longan with wolfberry soup to match with Chinese New Year festival. I love eating glutinous rice ball, too bad all the ones that I picked were all with black sesame filling while there was another peanut filling.

Chinese New Year Buffet Dinner 2017 Pricing

Overall, given the price at RM138 nett per person for Chinese New Year Eve and RM118 nett per person for Buffet Dinner on Chinese New Year are certainly worth the value especially with the Poon Choi and the Yook Poon both included! I surely like the idea of eating out during Chinese New Year where we do not have to spend time on cooking and even cleaning up!
