Jamuan Buka Puasa @ Sarkies, E&O Hotel, Georgetown, Penang

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.

In case you miss out on their Weekend Local Specialties and The Bakery promotion!

The long stretch of appetizer for us to savor, delicacies like cucur udang dipped with peanut sauce, fresh fruits with rojak sauce, salted duck eggs and different kerabu choices from kerabu kacang botol, kerabu perut, kerabut taugeh to kerabu jantung pisang. Their spicy sambal belacan, budu, tempoyak, air asam and cencaluk sauce as dressing to go with the appetizers.

The aroma of the roasted lamb and tandoori chickens, filled the outside of the buffet area.
