Farm Friday Buffet @ Taste Cafe, G Hotel Gurney

Henry Tan | 12:50 AM | |
After few months of renovation, G Hotel Gurney finally reopens their G Cafe with a change of brand new name, Taste Cafe, starting November this year. As you may know, after the completion of G Hotel Kelawai, the newly added sister property, G Hotel Penang has been renamed to G Hotel Gurney in order to differentiate the two. Taste Cafe with a whole new concept, revamping everything from the furniture to the cookery and cutlery. We went for their buffet dinner on Friday with the meaty theme of Farm Friday featuring all type of meats!

Right after the entrance, desserts are the one greeting us first. It's like reminding you that you gotta keep a space in your stomach for dessert after the main course. Or simply begins with the end in mind! As usual, when it comes to dessert, G Hotel Gurney never take it easy! One whole row of table full with desserts such as Caramel Macadamia, Chocolate Brownies, Mixed Fruit Flan, Mango Mousse Cake, Durian Mousse, Chocolate Cheesecake and even Nyonya Kuih. Most of them are definitely up to par!

Taste Cafe still serves the all time favorite - chocolate fountain! Fruits, Rojak, assorted nuts and even different types of cheese are up for grab as well. One good thing about attending buffet dinner with darling is that we can try each and every one of it since we are sharing. And if you see any dish with bigger portion, that dish must be darling's favorite!

Next up would be all the assorted cold cuts, seafood on ice, sashimi, sushi, salads and even antipasto! Antipasto actually means "before the meal" in Italian, just like a starter before any main course. But we didn't get carried away though, darling and I were being attracted by the sashimi as darling likes the salmon and octopus.

Taste Cafe changed all their tableware, which include the serving pot for the main course. Personally, I thought it is much better as it is easier to open but I was so afraid that I would drop it accidentally. For the main course, I like Stir Fried Prawn with Tomato Chili Sauce the most. The fact that the prawns were all being peeled and without the skin, and even big in size, I could save all the time without having to peel for darling. Overall, I think the food taste much better compare to the old G Cafe. I guess that's what G Hotel Gurney focuses on after revamped.

One of the main highlight for Taste Cafe will be their newly installed Lava Stone BBQ grill station. Unlike conventional charcoal grill, G Hotel Gurney invested in their grill station to give better taste to the food. Some said that these lava stone is healthier as it reduces the potential exposure to harmful carcinogens that result from charring and smoke exposure.

We ended our meal with Gelatomio ice cream as well as Shiraz red wine. The best addition to Taste Cafe would be the live band performance! The performing band was really good as we had an enjoyable Friday night. 

That's how you should enjoy your TGIF!
