Indulge in bountiful buffet spreads this Christmas and New Year celebrations

Sarkies’ festive buffets will have crowd favourites like (clockwise from top left) Roasted Turkey, seafood on ice, Oven Baked Beef Striploin and an irresistible array of holiday sweets.

BUFFETS are back at the Eastern and Oriental (E&O) Hotel in Penang – just in time for Christmas and the New Year!

So make a date for some jolly feasts at the hotel’s Sarkies Restaurant. After what has been an immensely challenging year, a little festive revelry will uplift spirits.

There is a Christmas Eve Dinner priced at RM188 for adults (A) and RM98 for children and seniors (C/S), and a Christmas Day Dinner at RM168 (A) and RM98 (C/S).

Alternatively, go for the Christmas or Boxing Day Lunch at RM138 (A) and RM70 (C/S). While menus vary, each spread promises to be bountiful and lavish.

Appetisers include fresh salads, local bites, cold cuts, soups, and the crowd-favourite sushi, sashimi and crustaceans on ice. But the carvery section is where the must-haves are.

Roasted Turkey with Apple Chestnut Stuffing stars in every spread. Complementing that would be the Oven Baked Beef Striploin, Boneless Leg of Lamb or Chicken Roulade – all with a variety of sides and sauces.

Visit the grill for sizzling cuts of meat and seafood, the Asian corner for local specialties, or the hot dish section for hearty international flavours. For dessert, there is a heady mix of colourful sweets and festive goodies.

Game for another feast before the year is out? Try the New Year’s Eve Dinner at RM198 (A) and RM109 (C/S). For any spread, diners can top up RM120 for free flow of wines, beers and spirits, or RM200 for Prosecco.

Those planning a festive gathering at home will love the hotel’s Festive Takeaways, available until Jan 1 next year. Three days’ advance order is required.

Skip the hassle of cooking and order a Roasted Turkey (RM450), Roasted Prime Beef (RM600), Oven Roasted Lamb Leg (RM400) or Java Tree Beef Wellington (RM700). Each item serves eight to 10 persons.

Looking for a festive gift instead? There is Christmas Fruit Cake, Pumpkin Pie, Raspberry Cream Cheese Yule Log, Black Forest Log, Chestnut and Vanilla Yule Log, cookies, stollen, Panettone Jar, gingerbread house, chocolate figurines and truffles.
