Thanks to the invitation from Hompton by the Beach, it was the first time for bae and I to visit and get a taste of their food at high ground of Level 11 - Spice Garden. Having said that, guests were able to enjoy the food while looking out to the coastline of Tanjung Tokong. 



Putting the view aside, let's dig in to the main dishes! Hompton by the Beach hotel offers a variety of main dishes such as corn on cob in milk, oven baked potatoes with herbs, sautΓ©ed herbed butter vegetables, grilled salmon steak in fruity glaze, slow cooker Hungarian beef goulash, roasted lamb shoulder with garlic rosemary sauce, cornflakes chicken with mango salsa and firecracker sauce, three-flavoured stir-fried prawns, squid ink pasta with chicken Bolognese sauce and herb and raisin buttered rice.



One of the must have highlights for Christmas has to be the Roasted Turkey. The carving station includes roasted turkey and roasted baby lamb with Christmas stuffing of roasted baby potatoes, roasted vegetables (including Brussel sprouts, trust tomatoes, pumpkin and red baby radish). The side sauces include Jus of Turkey, Cranberry sauce, Black Pepper sauce and Mint sauce. I have to say that their Roasted Turkey is one of the best you can find in Penang hotel. The turkey was still moist and juicy, which is rare to find in roast turkey! 



Apart from the main dishes and carving station, the chef at Hompton also prepared assorted appetizers. EntrΓ©e dishes include salmon gravlax, butcher platter on ice comprising of chicken terrine, chicken salami and smoked duck breast, smoked fish platter on ice with a medley of smoked salmon, tuna and smoked mackerel served with a side of horseradish cream,  sushi and sashimi platter, assorted sushi platter, fresh salmon tuna, a taco platter and a cheese platter with mixed nuts and dried fruits.  






What stands out the most from the rest was the Vegetable Sticks in Glass with Guacamole Dip! Being a low carb dieter, avocado is like the number 1 go-to-food. So you can tell how happy I was to find that Hompton offers guacamole. πŸ˜‹πŸ˜‹πŸ˜‹ 




Lastly, to end the Christmas celebration on a sweet note, dessert is unavoidable! Dessert includes tropical fresh fruit platter with preserved plum powder, strawberries, green and red grapes, watermelon, honeydew, papaya, green and red applies, raspberries, blueberries, water guava and jack fruit, assorted marshmallows and dried fruits.  


There is also hot chocolate pudding, Christmas pudding, Christmas log cake, Christmas spices fruit cakes, tiramisu, assorted Christmas cookies including gingerbread man cookies, New York cheese cake, red velvet cake, candy meringue pie, apple pie with vanilla sauce, fruit tartlets, stollen shortbread, panna cotta, chocolate mousse puff,  honeycomb with Christmas farm bread plus coffee and tea. 


Overall, I think it is worth a visit given that it is one of the newest hotel in Penang. On top of that, if you enjoy your dinner with lot of booze and a seaview, then you certainly have to choose Hompton by the Beach.

Same like many years before, truly thanks to Eastin Hotel Penang for the invitation to sample their Christmas buffet dinner. This year with the new Executive Chef on board, Chef Alex Leong, we witnessed a total different way in setting up the Christmas menu. Certainly a great change! πŸ‘πŸ‘




Unlike the previous year, Chef Alex Leong prepared a variety of appetizers which include cold meat platters, cold fish platters, salad with assorted dressings, cheese and even canapes! Some of those that really caught my attention are Lamb Rillettes, Cheese Yule Log, Vanilla-scented Scallop Escabeche, Gimbab and Buckwheat Blinis with Shrimp with Sour Cream. 





For the main dishes, Chef Alex made it all colorful this year with the edible flowers. The available mouth watering dishes are Braised Beef Ribs with Sweet Blueberry Chutney and Smoked Hickory BBQ Glaze, Shoulder of Lamb, Peperonata Red Lentils and Black Pepper Jus, Poached Salmon with Asparagus and Mornay sauce, Grilled Tiger Prawns with Ratatouille Vegetables and Salsa Verde, Duck Leg Confit, Flageolet Beans Au Orange and Buttered Chestnut Brussels sprouts.



Braised Beef Ribs is my favorite! 


One of the main highlight for Christmas has to be the Roasted Turkey. Eastin Hotel Penang offers Festive Roast Turkey with Giblet Sauce and 3 type of bread stuffing. The turkey is also available at RM338 nett per whole bird starting from 1-23 December. Just be sure to order at least 2 days in advance! 


What surprised me the most was the Rock Salt Baked Crusted Whole Salmon! So far Eastin Hotel Penang is the only hotel that I saw serving this in Penang. Together at the Festive Oven counter, Roasted Roots Vegetables and Porcini Cream is available too.



Chef Alex definitely wow-ed us with many surprise addition, such as the Christmas Burritos with the filling of Turkey Cha Siew, Avocado, Mango, Cucumber and Chipotle Cranberry Compote. To make you more fulfilling, a huge plate of New Orleans Jambalaya with prawns and peppers.  




To end the festive feast on a sweet note, assorted dessert are available. To name a few, Traditional Xmas Pudding, Mini Mince Pie, Assorted Xmas Cookies, Raspberry Yule Log, Mini Strawberry Cheese Cake, Walnut Cream Pie, Fresh Fruit Tart, English Fruit Cake, Mini White Chocolate Brownies and Tropical Fruits Bar.




Overall, I think the buffet in Eastin Hotel Penang this year were being prepared delicately, a lot different from the previous year.

Thanks to the invitation from the hotel, bae and I got to pamper ourselves with their wide array of delicious food. The Wembley Hotel Penang is one of few hotels that provides the full spread of buffet which would be suitable to all walks of life.

We started off with the main dishes, where some of the noteworthy main dishes such as Lamb Stew with Onion and Cabbage, Grilled Salmon with Citrus and Herbs Salsa, Baked Seafood Thermidor, as well as the 12 Hours Slow Cooked Beef Ribs. 



Apart from the main dishes, some of the local delights such as Satay, Fried Wanton, Chicken Pepperoni Pizza and many more are available. What we loved the most was actually the thick creamy  and smooth Pumpkin Soup with added texture from the small pieces of meat, certainly the best way to warm up the stomach!  



Meanwhile for the appetizers, The Wembley Hotel Penang offers Seafood on Ice with assorted seafood ranging from tiger prawns, mussels, scallop, snow crab leg, scallop with roe, slipper lobster and even oysters! 



The Sashimi for the buffet dinner at Wembley Cafe were very impressive too. Tuna Maguro, Salmon, Tako were all beautifully decorated, absolutely a pleasure for the eyes! Assorted sushi are all available as well, but you know me, I don't take carb. 



As for the main highlight at the carving station, it has to be the Roasted Turkey served along with Sage, Giblet Sauce, Roasted Chestnut, Chestnut Stuffing, Cranberry Sauce and Glazed Sweet Potatoes. 





To end the big festive feast on a sweet note, various Christmas dessert were all in colorful decoration. To name a few such as Eggnog Brulee, Warm Christmas Pudding with Vanilla Sauce, Assorted Christmas Cookies, Ginger Bread, Pecan Pie, Minced Meat Pie, Stollen, Panettone, Christmas Cup Cake and so on! 


Overall, even though the pricing could be at the higher end among all the hotels but given the cozy surrounding, variety of food and quality of food, I would say it would be worthwhile. Afterall it is only once a year, what could be a better way to splurge your year end bonus right? πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚
