When one thinks of the holy month of Ramadhan, the word fasting comes to mind. I, for one think of the Buka Puasa buffet spreads and stalls, mushrooming for just this one month to satisfy our deprived taste buds. Sarkies Annexe (New Wing) in Eastern & Oriental Hotel Penang is not missing out the party. In conjunction with the month of Ramadhan, Sarkies Annexe is offering an extended buffet spread, featuring our flavorful Malay and local cuisine, on top of their already delectable international dishes.

We all love the taste of Char Koay Teow hot from the flaming wok or eating Chendol by the street amidst hordes of tourists. What we may NOT miss would be the hot, sweltering heat and the frustration of trying to get a parking space!
If you want a breath of fresh air, come visit Sarkies Corner where you can find all these favourite local specialties in one place. Basked in the ambience of the colonial décor, I would personally opt for a seat by the beautiful garden porch. Overlooking the sea, you can enjoy the sea breeze while sampling the local specialties. You can even walk off the calories along the garden post lunch overlooking the Penang Bridge.
A space previously occupied by the international buffet, Sarkies Corner now offers an expansive ala carte menu specially featuring an array of Western and Eastern delights. Be it small bites of Samosa or a warm bowl of Sup Ekor to a crispy skin Norwegian Salmon Steak, you will surely find a dish that can satisfy your every whim and fancy from Sarkies Corner.

BAKED CHEESE CAKE – pairing it with the sweetness of the berries, and with the soft textured cheese melting in every bite
My Voice Cafe & Studio is located at Krystal Point (previously Elmondo), this being their 2nd branch in Bayan Lepas. Their first branch is located at Bay Avenue (beside Queensbay Mall and Eastin Hotel). Following their expansion, their third branch is opening soon at THE CEO building (opposite Kayu Restaurant) where it will be PORK FREE to cater for my HALAL folks.
The interior of the cafe follows a very clean, white and minimalist layout. There was a grand piano in the store, but we did not have the opportunity to hear any performances. Overall, we were satisfied with the fast service in taking orders and serving of food.
The main highlight of the cafe is their BIG BOWL RAMEN (RM 35 for 2 person, RM49 for 3 person, RM62 for 4 person and RM72 for 5 person)
