G HOTEL Gurney in Penang welcomes year-end revellers to eat, drink and make merry, over lavish spreads imbued with festive gaiety.
With eclectic flavours and cheery presentations, the Christmas Eve and Christmas Day Lunch and Dinner Buffets at Taste Cafe will fill one with glee.
“We took into account what guests liked or requested for
previously, to make this one of our best line-ups yet, ” executive chef Mohd Firdaous Mohd Izhar said.
While fresh salads, cheeses and cold cuts are good to start with, most will plunder the seafood on ice tray for poached king crab legs, prawns, scallops, mussels and plump, fresh-shucked oysters.
Warm bowls of Minestrone di Verde or Lobster Bisque should prove comforting, before you stop by the carving station for the season’s succulent specialties.
The tender Roasted Turkey with cranberry sauce and Australian Prime Rib with
Herbs, both slow-roasted to retain natural juices, will bring much joy.
Those are not all, as the expanded roast selection also features Poulet Roti Herb du Provence, Roasted Whole Lamb, Roast Duck al’Orange and Salmon Caulibiac.
More heartwarming flavours can be found in main dishes such as Butterfish Meuniere, Lamb Paillard, Minced Beef Gratin and Oak Smoked Duck Bigarade.
Head outside for juicy seafood and meats from the Lava Stone BBQ Grill, then back in to the Asian stations for local, Nyonya and Hong Kong delicacies.
A whimsical Hansel and Gretel-inspired dessert bar - stocked full of Christmas cookies, puddings, cakes, pastries, gingerbread and stollen - brings the festive feast to a glorious end.
