Buffet Featuring Durian Desserts @ The Wembley Hotel Penang

Henry Tan | 10:50 AM | Be the first to comment!
Yes you see it right! Now you can enjoy the creamy durian delicacies at Wembley Cafe together with their delicious buffet spread! Throughout the month of July, both Buffet Lunch and Buffet Dinner from Thursday to Sunday will be featuring durian desserts!  


The buffet spread offers both local and international cuisines with a wide array of selections from Asian Tapas, Seafood on Ice, Action Kitchen, Japanese Delights and many more. So starting with the Seafood on Ice where bae and I enjoyed eating the prawns, oysters, mussels, scallops, as well as snow crab. Be sure to squeeze some lemon and add a few drop of Tabasco sauce for a different taste! 


As for the appetizer, The Wembley Hotel offers Sashimi, assorted Sushi, cold cuts, pizza, salads and different types of cheese. After so many years of buffet, Bae and I usually only go for those we really like, such as salmon sahimi with the dipping of wasabi mayonnaise, as well as the soft and creamy Camembert cheese.


The chef at Wembley Cafe amazed us with the Durian Sauce they prepared to go along with those fried food, particularly the Deep Fried Mantou. We usually dip the Mantou into those thick sauce like Chilli Crab, but surprisingly it matched perfectly with Durian Sauce too! Of course you can dip the sauce with satay too if you are feeling adventurous like me! 


Moving on to the sumptuous main dishes, some of the noteworthy ones such as the Greek Chicken Couscous (for low carb people like me), Slow Braised Lamb Short Ribs, Mantis Shrimp with Kong Po Sauce, Wok Fried Prawns with Oat and Shanghainese Salmon Fillet. Roasted Lamb Leg is available too where the chef would help to cut the portion you want. 






Lastly for the durian themed desserts, the creative chefs at The Wembley Hotel prepared Durian Cheese Cake, Durian Cheese Tart, Durian Swiss Roll, Durian Dumpling, Durian Creme Brulee and even Durian Pengat! You would be astounded by their creations! 




Overall, given it is the season of The King of Fruits, this could be another great way to indulge in the silky smooth and creamy flavour of Durian too!

Buffet Featuring Durian Desserts @ Cititel Penang

Calling for all durian lovers! It is the season of Durian again! Getting bored of the typical hotel buffet? Then make sure you check out Cititel Penang, as throughout the month of July, you can enjoy the hotel buffet with added durian desserts. 


Thanks to the invitation, bae and I got to try out first hand on their buffet dinner on a Saturday night. As usual, let's get it started with the appetizers prepared by Cititel Penang. Assorted salads with various dressing and fruits Rojak are all available. But if you followed our blog long enough, you would know....


We would directly skip to Seafood on Ice and all the Sashimi! Yes, prawns, oysters and salmon sashimi are the ones that we definitely would not missed. Assorted sushi are available too but no rice for me as I'm on a low carb diet! 


Apart from the cold chilly salad and sushi, hot soup and all the grilled food are being served at the Action Counter too. Tomyum soup and Tomato soup are up to choose to kick start your appetite. Cititel Chef will be ready at the Action Counter to prepare the Satay as well as grill the lamb and chicken for you too.  


Moving on to the main courses, a total of 10 fusion dishes are up for grab. Some of the noteworthy ones are Roasted Duck, Grilled Prawn with Garlic Butter, Stir Fried Beef with Thai Basil, Roasted Lamb Leg and Kaeng Som Salmon Head. 




Up to here, all still seems quite common right? Well what about Spaghetti on Parmesan Wheel! How often do you find this Parmesan Wheel in a restaurant, let alone included in hotel buffet in Penang right? Given that bae and I are cheese lovers, surely we were surprised to see it there and amazed by the preparation of it. 

*this is the carb that I am willing to sacrifice for!*

Apart from the main courses and the spaghetti, Cititel Penang also offers a Prime Rib with a blend of comforting fresh herbs arrived on trays with accompaniments such as Yorkshire Pudding and roasted potato wedges. 



Here comes the highlight of the buffet - Durian Desserts! Starting with the Must-Try Durian Cake where the fluffy sponge sandwich well with the layers of rich and creamy durian cheese. Durian Cream Puff is another specialty where the fragrance of durian would instantly wow you after taking the first bite. Some other durian desserts that worth mentioning are Durian Cream Cake, Durian Tiramisu, Durian Creame Caramel and Durian Mousse Cake.


Overall, if you are a durian lover and looking for a buffet lunch or dinner to go, then Cititel Penang would be a very good choice. Given the buffet priced starting from RM63 nett per adult, I think that's very affordable too!

The delicious spread is ranging from heavenly aromas of Malaysian delight to cater the locals and tourists. According to the Executive Chef Kam, Gearbox Soup is one of the crowd pullers, while Lamb Leg Kuzi with Briyani Rice and Curry Nangka Muda are also significant dishes to most Malay citizens and certainly one of the must have during breaking fast. 



Apart from that, professional chefs at Action Stall will also be barbequing Satay on the spot and pair with the sweet and spicy sauce along with its signature compressed rice, sliced onion and cucumber. The Action Stall also serves Grilled Lamb Chop and sausages that served well with mint sauce. 




Even though it is a Ramadhan Buffet Dinner, but rest assured that Cititel Penang will still be serving all the standard dishes such as the Seafood on Ice. So for seafood lovers like me, you will still be able to enjoy all their oysters, prawns, mussels and scallops. Japanese food wise, all the sashimi (salmon, tuna and octopus) and assorted sushi are available too. 





For the main course, Cititel Penang offers a wide array of dishes starting from Salmon and Egg Fried Rice, Soft Shell Crab Karaage, Stir Fried Squid with Salted Egg, Salmon Head Curry, Daging Masak Kicap, Chicken Rendang, Nile Perch Masak Lemak, Stir Fried Prawns with Oats, Chili Padi and Curry Leaves, Curry Nangka Muda and Mixed Vegetable with Sea Cucumber.


Lastly, for the sweetest segment of the buffet, besides all the western dessert, the assorted traditional Malay Kuih are available too. If you are a durian lovers, be ready to be spoilt with the creamy and luxurious texture of Durian Pengat! 


Overall, I think the Ramadhan Buffet Dinner at Cititel Penang is suitable for those company or colleagues celebrating buka puasa together. Given the variety of dishes which doesn't focuses on Malay dishes only, that makes it a suitable especially for those with multifacial.
