Ambient of the buffer lounge. Simple and clean look, don't you feel appetite?
Clockwise : Prawn Bisque, Shark's Fin Soup (Never try this cause i anti Shark's Fin), Nasi Briyan and Deep Fried Bacon Roll Stuffed With Prawn Mousse.

Clockwise : Deep Fried Bacon Roll Stuffed With Prawn Mousse, Beef Ribs "Uncle Style", Stir Fired Mussels "Kong Po", Steam Fish With Superior sauce. Ops, Bacon roll stuffed picture i put 2 times. Guess what it taste so GOOD. As for the beef ribs, it is abit hard to my liking.

Clockwise : Wok Fired Prawn "Kam Hiong Sauce", Butter Vegetable, Cheese Gratinated Oyster With Smoked Chicken and Grilled Lamb and Scallop Kabobs. The lamb on the Kabobs is on the hard side and i wish the scallop to be bigger :)

Clockwise : Mashed Polenta, Creamy Lobster Thermidor, Sayur Masak Kunyit and Ayam Masak Percik. I love the Lobster dish most cause of the fragrant in the sauce. 

Clockwise : Lamb Tandoori, Fruit, Bread Pudding and Vanilla sauce that come along. The dessert is SUPER good, especially the Vanilla sauce. Guess what they are using REAL VANILLA POD. In the market, we use to the fate vanilla essence and only litter people know how is the real Vanilla is. FYI, Vanilla Pod is the world 2nd most expensive species.

Clockwise : Petit Four, Fruit Jelly and dessert.

Clockwise : Dessert, Beef Wellington, Cold Dish Bar and Salad Bar Dish. The best dish in the buffet is Beef Wellington. It is SUPER DUPER GOOD. Is a MUST TRY dish, although it is medium raw but it is so tender and juicy. Write about it make me drill.

Some other shoot for the food :)

End the event Mr. M.D. Manogaran and his grandson, M.Sharran are given some of the goodie bag (Stationary Set- Eastin Bag, Pencil Case, Pen, Pencil, Math Set etc) and daily supply (Rice,Milk, Condensed Milk, Corn Flakes, BOH Tea etc). All of us wish Mr. M.D. Manogaran and M.Sharran had a Happy Deepavali 2011.

Left to right : The man of the buffer is Chef Lim Teng Kooi and dessert by Chef Franco Ho. Thank you for both of them for giving us such a great time in Eastin Hotel.

As i said, really surprise me that Eastin had such GREAT potential but still new to Penang People. I think they might need to do more awareness to the public regarding their food or event :)
