THERE is doubly good reason to break fast at the Eat-All-You-Can Seafood live cooking dinner offering at Shangri-La’s Rasa Sayang Resort and Spa in Penang.

Besides bountiful fresh catch prepared in various styles, menus from April 16 to May 9 will also feature special traditional Malay dishes.

Head over to the Spice Market Cafe on any Friday, Saturday or Sunday to enjoy the meal which is priced at RM188 for adults and RM94 for children.

Take advantage of the ‘Dine 4 Pay 3’ deal for adult diners.

There will be 15 stations to satisfy diners with huge appetites.

Festive favourites such as Ayam Masak Madu Merah, Betis Kambing Kurma Masala and Udang Masak Lemak Kapitan beckon at the Malay section.

The lineup rotates, and other days might see Kambing Masak Berempah Kicap Lada Hitam, Ayam Goreng Berempah, Rendang Tok, Nasi Bukhari Kambing and Sup Gearbox offered instead.

Carvery items like Roasted Lamb, Roasted Sambal Fish, Roasted Duck and Chicken Char Siew are must-haves, as are piping hot bowls of Penang Assam Laksa and Spicy Prawn Noodles.

Mix it up with Western treats such as Baked Lobster, Teriyaki Roasted Duck Breast, Seafood Stew and Crispy Walnut Breaded Lamb Cutlets, or Indian specialities like Lamb Tikka and Chicken Masala.

The Chinese station could have Wok-fried Spicy Nestum Prawns, Ginseng Root Herb Chicken and Singapore Chili Crabs.

Seafood on Ice, sashimi, grilled meats and desserts round off the offerings.

Neighbouring sister property Golden Sands Resort is serving an Eat-All-You-Can Selera Kampung dinner daily from April 13 to May 12, spotlighting Malay heartland fare.

This is priced at RM128 for adults and RM64 for kids. Enjoy a Buy One Get One Free deal from Sunday to Thursday or get 25% off on Friday and Saturday (adults only).

Many dishes are cooked to old family recipes such as Ayam Pasu, Kambing Golek, Murtabak, Nasi Briyani, Lemang dan Ketupat, Ikan Bakar, Pasembur and Mee Udang.

The spreads at both resorts are served from 6pm to 10pm. Chefs will help diners plate everything up. This ensures hygiene without compromising the ‘unlimited helpings’ appeal of buffets.
