Kampachi Penang After Renovation (2020) @ Hotel Equatorial Penang

Henry Tan | 4:03 PM | Be the first to comment!
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.

Overall, given the price point at RM68+, it is cheaper than other hotel so we can't really expect to have those full spread buffet. But I would say that most of the food are great, especially their main highlight - roasted lamb and chicken. Worth it or not? If you are meat lover like me, then certainly yes!
