Buffet meal a hit with lunch crowd

(Clockwise from top left) Help yourselves to a bowl of Sup Ayam Makaroni, then mains like Daging Kicap, Gulai Ikan Masin or Ayam Masak Cabai in the Taste of Malaysia Buffet Lunch.

HOTEL Royal Penang’s Taste of Malaysia Buffet Lunch is a crowd- puller, thanks to its mouth-watering selection of familiar local flavours.

Served at Grove Brasserie from noon to 2.30pm every Monday to Saturday, it is one of the best deals in town at just RM28 per person.

Popular with office crowds and families alike, it has half a dozen menus on daily rotation, executive sous chef Rozairy Roslan said.

“We cook every dish with love to ensure guests enjoy every bite. The price is value for money, and we’ve had great word-of-mouth,” he added of the long-running promo.

He suggests starting off with a bowl of Sup Ayam Berempah, Soto Ayam, Sup Tom Yam or perhaps Sup Ayam Makaroni, depending on the day one visits.

Ulam and keropok should whet the appetite further, in time for rice and mains – of which there are six items each day, mainly curries and local favourites.

The poultry item is typically one of Ayam Masak Lemak, Ayam Kapitan, Ayam Goreng Berempah, Ayam Masak Cabai and Braised Ginger Chicken.

Meat possibilities include Daging Rendang, Daging Masak Tomato and Daging Masak Kicap, while seafood could come in the form of Sotong Masak Berempah, Fish Tikka or Steamed Fish, to name a few.

Each day, the action stall serves a different noodle item, which could be Char Koay Teow, Prawn Mee, Curry Mee, Koay Teow Th’ng, Sup Bihun Utara or Laksa.

Desserts comprise homemade treats like Kuih Cara, Apom Pisang, Kuih Lapis, Kuih Ketayap, Bubur Gandum or Pengat Pisang, alongside puddings, cakes and pastries.

The restaurant also serves Tiffin Set for lunch on Sundays between noon and 3pm, as well as for dinner on Sunday to Thursday from 6pm to 10pm.

Priced at RM19.90 per person, it comes with three main dishes – a soup, a vegetable item, and a chicken or fish item – together with rice, papadom and sambal.

Rozairy said the chicken possibilities were Ayam Masak Merah, Ayam Masak Bali, Ayam Kapitan and Ayam Kurma, while the fish could be Sweet and Sour Fish, Ikan Masak Lemak, Ikan Masak Berlada and Fish Curry.

For something lighter, try the Royal Teh Tarik and Roti Bakar Set at just RM8. Available from 3pm to 6pm, it is great for catching up with friends or a business meet-up.
