Eastin Hotel Penang presents its “Eastin Ku – Kampung Ku” Ramadan Buffet for the coming Ramadan fasting month. The buffet dinner features an array of authentic traditional fasting favorites coupled with international favorites.
“The menu emphasised on lots of spices and long cooking time, and it is best showcased in both the gearbox soup and the roast whole lamb,” says sous chef Mohd Fauzi bin Alias. The gearbox soup is a dish of bone marrow soup, boiled for several hours, while the roast whole lamb marinated for three days is cooked for two hours.
The highlights of the buffet are the hawker stalls and action counters. The hawker stalls offer bubur lambuk, ice kacang, roast whole lamb, shawarma corner and gearbox soup.
