It had been a while since I visited The View in Hotel Equatorial Penang. The restaurant which offers classic French/Mediterranean cuisine has recently unveiled its refreshed menu. Executive chef Philippe L’Obry and sous chef Looi Soon Lee worked well in bringing their food styles together. The new dishes and hearty classic dishes are prepared with several notches above what was originally served.

The restaurant’s semi-buffet menu remained unchanged, still with one main course from the a la carte menu, and unlimited helpings of delectable appetizers and desserts. The buffet spread is lay out in small portions and replenished as soon as the previous batch runs out.

The spread of cold succulent seafood include large prawns, oysters and scallops. The oysters with briny flesh are just perfect with few drops of lemon juice.

This year we celebrated dad’s birthday at the Spice Market Cafe in Rasa Sayang Resort and Spa. Located in Batu Feringgi, Penang, the resort went through a major renovation lately.

This cafe with indoor and outdoor sitting is located in the Garden Wing (we choose to sit indoor cos its cooler). At the entrance of the cafe, you will find a displayed of many different types of spices and utensils.

 

There are many stations serving a mix variety of food – Malay, Chinese, Indian, Western and Japanese. At the cold station is a variety of seafood – baby lobster, prawns, mussels, yabbies and flower crabs.

The Japanese station offers variety of sushi,  freshly cut sashimi – salmon, tuna, tako and unagi.

Here are the various types of food from the ‘hot’ stations.

 

The last stop is the desserts and sweets corner. Choices are endless, with mouthwatering cakes, ice-cream, fresh fruits and delicious pancakes.

 

 

With efficient service and the quality of food, this is one of the better hotel buffet around town. At RM87.00++ per person (during weekdays), it is worth the money. Diners paying by certain credit card are also entitled to a discount.

It is an enjoyable evening and we definitely would be returning to Rasa Sayang Resort and Spa again to try out the various dining outlets.
