At Maken Kitchen in DoubleTree Resort by Hilton Penang, diners can now hand-picked all the ingredients not just the seafood but also wide range of meats and greens to choose from, including beef cuts, lamb chops, Bratwurst sausages, Chinese Cabbage, corn on cob and many more. 

After picking all the ingredients, diners can then head over to the Live Cooking Station to get the chef to cook in few different style such as stir fried, grilled and deep fried. Assorted condiments are available too ranging from Madras Curry Sauce, Tandoori Spice, Masala Style, Percik Style, Spicy Sambal, Sweet and Sour sauce, Chili Crab Sauce, Creamy Herb Sauce and many more. Most of us like the "Kam Heong style" the most. 😍😍😍

Makan Kitchen at DoubleTree Resort offers a wide buffet spread that caters for everyone! Even though I am on Keto diet (high fat low carb), but I can still find many food option here. So yes, I skipped all the rice, spaghetti, or food that coated with thick batter or thick sauce. 

So I started with Seafood on Ice which consists of prawns, snow crab leg and scallop. Prawns and carb contain no carbs while providing vitamins and minerals. Cauliflower is one of the main low carb vegetable so I like to eat how tasty the way the chef deep fried it which I never done it before. Here are the rest of the food I ate, not super clean Keto, but I made sure it is fatty enough! 😁😁😁

Overall, regardless if on a specific diet or not, I think Makan Kitchen provides more than enough to cater to all. I know that now we Malaysian are under the Movement Control Order and buffet probably not available. But trust me when COVID19 is over, you will want to have a big feast and no place would be better than DoubleTree Resort by Hilton Penang!

Pacific West Prosperous 2020

Henry Tan | 10:12 PM | Be the first to comment!
Thanks to the invitation from Sue, bae and I celebrated the Prosperous 2020 with Pacific West at The Prestige Hotel Penang. In collaboration with The Prestige Hotel, Pacific West showcased all their award winning products through a creatively-crafted menu. 

The event started with the introduction of Pacific West management, award winning products, latest products then followed by Lou Sang to celebrate Chinese New Year. After that we got to enjoy all the food in a buffet style. 

The 3 new products, namely, Nori Himalayan Salt Squid Spiral, Panko Coated Squid Strips and Sweet Chili Fish Cocktails. I bet you can hardly tell from the photos below given how creative they carefully curated! 

After the buffet, we had game session where each group are required to decorate their cupcakes! Surprisingly we won with our brilliant creation! πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ But still thanks to Pacific West, we enjoyed ourselves and we even got to walk away some prizes as well as a goodie bag to test out their products! 

Okay fast forward after 2 months, I finally got the time to try out the product sample given to us. So far I just tried the Oven Baked Fish. We always like Pacific West Products because of the "Cook from Frozen", since everyone of us are busy and we might forget to take out from fridge to defrost. 

The simple and clear instructions were written at the back of the box as well. Both oven or air fryer are acceptable! So we chose to use air fryer which is super duper convenient! We followed the temperature and time as per instructed and the outcome was amazing like almost similar to the illustration photo of the box! πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ 

Well stay tuned as we will post the other 3 new products once we tried it out! In the mean time, don't forget to go buy and try it out yourself too! Pssst! Don't say I bojio, from now until 30th April 2020, you stand a chance to win a stylish Vaya Tyffyn with every purchase of Pacific West participating products.

Kampachi Penang After Renovation (2020) @ Hotel Equatorial Penang

Henry Tan | 4:03 PM | 1 Comment so far
At the end of 2019, Kampachi Japanese Restaurant at Hotel Equatorial Penang was closed temporarily for renovation. Kampachi reopened one week ago, so bae and I went to celebrate our anniversary there since both of us are big fan of Japanese food. 

Undoubtedly after the renovation, Kampachi Penang looks a lot more spacious and comfy. The surrounding is brighter too compared to previously. Currently Kampachi only serving the Lunch Menu and the ala cart menu. Meanwhile, buffet will only be available starting February onwards, according to the F&B Team that I talked to over the phone.

Bae and I were quite hungry so we ordered quite a lot for ourselves. For Lunch Menu, all comes in set, which means it would be served together with Salad, Kobachi, Chawan Mushi, Miso Soup, Pickles & Assorted fruits. Bae was craving for Kare Don for some time, so as a loving boyfriend of course I would know what to do! 😁😁😁

Given that they just opened last week, some of the items in the new menu actually is still not available. I was craving for ramen, but unfortunately Shio Ramen isn't available yet during our visit. Which is why we ended up ordered Gyu Yanagawa. So you might want to double check first on the availability of your craving dish.

Japanese Katsu Kare Don - RM45
(Under Kampachi Executive Lunch, Lunch Menu)
Japanese Kare, one of the most popular and widely consumed dish and can be called as the national dish of Japan. The dish is prepared with chef's secret recipe presented with selection of either rice or udon. Served along with tori katsu or also called as chicken katsu and beni shoga (pickled red ginger).

Sushi Moriawase - RM78
(under Sushi/Sashimi Teishoku, Lunch Menu)
7 pieces of Nigiri Sushi and 1 Hosomaki Roll

Matcha Ice Cream complimentary from set

Gyu Yanagawa - RM50
(under Yanagawa Nabe, ala Carte Menu)
Stewed sliced beef with egg sauce

Overall, we love the newly renovated environment. The only thing that we hope that they can improved on is by double-check the order with the customers. I actually wanted to get Sashimi instead of Sushi given that I don't really take rice. So to avoid such miscommunication, I think it is essential for them to repeat back the order with customers. Despite the small incident, we are still looking forward to go back in February for their buffet.

Thanks to the invitation from DoubleTree by Hilton Penang, bae and I got to enjoy their Chinese New Year Eve Reunion Dinner. It was only our second visit to DoubleTree right after the Christmas Buffet, so we kind of expected how nicely their food presentation will be. Without surprise, they live up to the expectation by having all the delightfully decorated food. 

We started off with the appetizers which consists of assorted salad as well as Seafood on Ice. For the Seafood on Ice, the chefs from DoubleTree by Hilton Penang creatively crafted an ice blocked with frozen decorations inside. This is probably the best that we have seen so far among all the hotels in Penang! 

For the main dishes, DoubleTree by Hilton Penang offers Wok Fried Cantonese Hor Fan with Assorted Seafood, Deep Fried Prawn with Butter and Chicken Floss, Stir Fried Beef with Black Pepper Sauce, Wok Fried Flower Crab with Kam Heong Sauce, Steamed Eight Treasure Chicken with Oyster Sauce, Fried Glutinous Rice with Baby Abalone in Lotus Leaf, Steamed Fish with Nyonya Sauce, Seafood Treasure in Cabbage Parcel and Green Garden, and lastly, Roasted Duck.

Apart from the main dishes, the hotel also serves some of the Chinese must-have food at the action counters such as Roasted Chicken, Char Siew and Roasted Chicken Wings. Grilled Seafood such as prawns, fish fillets, calamari rings, chicken sausages and lamb chop are all available too! 

Lastly, DoubleTree by Hilton Penang makes sure the guests would go home with a happy stomach by serving all the beautifully decorated dessert. To match the Chinese New Year theme, the pastry chef decorated the dessert with those cute Chinese element such as Mandarin Oranges and flowers.

Overall, given the location at Batu Ferringhi, I would highly recommend to stay a night there and celebrate the Chinese New Year with family and friends! With that, one can enjoy their facilities yet taking a good time to slowly enjoy the food, the environment as well as the festive celebration.
