Authentic Penang Buffet

For full review and pictures, do visit therantingpanda.com There are live stations where the friendly chef would dish out your favourite noodles such as the Hokkien Prawn Mee Soup, Char Kway Teow, Duck Mee Sua and Kway Teow Thng. I liked the size of the portions, which was not too filling so that I could try more dishes. The Hokkien Prawn Mee Soup had a rich broth, with extremely fresh prawns.

Last vist - standard drop!

I frequent this restaurant 3 ~ 4 time a year for the past years. The drawing factor was the "too-thor th'ng" or the "Pig Stomach Soup / 猪肚汤”. Imagine my disappointment when I visited Princess last evening and head for the TTT to start off.
 Pui!!!
 The chef must have dropped x kg of the white pepper into the soup.
 It taste nothing but spicy. Next I went for my No. 2 craving, the Prawn Noodle. Round 1, without even checking with me, the server simply dish in a spoonful of chilli paste into the Prawn noodle. Needless to say, that is not the way to spice up a soup-ed dish. I requested for another bowl without that ridiculous chilli paste to taste the soup. Failed – the old receipt for this prawn soup has been altered to sour + spicy ie. 酸辣汤. There is always an old Hokkien say, “厉害就好不要假厉害”! The only comfort is that the cooked area are Prawn-Paste-chicken, Curry Chicken, Sambal Fish and the Braised Pork Belly are still kept the tested-n-proven cooking method. It time to start checking other Penang food outlets.

Not a bad place for Peranakan / Penang food

Went there last night with a few of my family members for the buffet dinner as we had a 1-for-1 complimentary voucher. We sat outside the restaturant itself which was spacious and better as I think the inside seating is a little cramped.

Starting by trying the soup which was kiam chye ar thng and pig stomach soup, which was okay but a little saltish.
The ngoh hiang (lor bak) was delicious and solid, so was the duck leg mee sua from the noodle stand. The popiah was just so-so to me. The kueh paitee on the other hand was rather good. Then we took some of the dishes, the satay was good, and so was the cockles. The penang char kway teow is a must-try. They had salad too which I found to be rather good, with a variety of condiments. My brother said he liked the Caesar salad I tossed. However, the rojak left much to be desired as the sauce was over sticky and lacked tau pok or fried you char kway. The nonya kuehs were very unique and delicious. They had about ten varieties I think, and also soya beancurd and ban chan kway with banana. When faced with a strange dish, I asked the server there, "What is this? Is this a Peranakan dish?" The server looked puzzled and couldn't offer any answer. I thought she didn't understand English so I asked her in Mandarin and she replied that she didn't know. Overall, service was good as the dishes were cleared promptly. We had a good time of chatting and family bonding together.

One of the best Penang food in Sg

For the full review with photos, please check out http://thehungrybunnie.blogspot.com/2011/09/princess-terrace-cafe-copthorne-kings.html

Copthorne King's Hotel may look like an unassuming, and somewhat run-down hotel in the midst of the 5-star accommodations that throng around our little island, but this is one hotel that really shines through its food. It's Chinese restaurant, Tien Court, serves exquisite delicacies, while its coffee house serves up one of the best Penang food around. It could be Singaporeans' never-ending love for buffets, as we were here on a Tuesday night and the entire buffet restaurant was full. But, I've long heard people rave about the Penang buffet here. While the selection may not be as varied as The Line at Shangri-La, or as luxurious as Greenhouse at the Ritz, the food here is authentic, hearty and comforting.

That said, we weren't really in the mood for a buffet, though we were in the mood for some Penang cuisine, in ala carte portions.

We ate:

1) Penang Chicken Curry ($16.80) - a rich creamy and headily spicy nonya-style chicken curry

2) Penang Char Kway Teow ($15) - an aromatic smoky wok-fried flat rice noodles with crunchy bean sprouts, Chinese sausage, prawns and eggs in savoury black soya sauce. Slurp-worthy!

3) Chicken Satay ($12) - tender chicken skewers marinated with an oriental flair is served with a spicy peanut dip. I liked this, even if it didn't have a discernible sliver of pure fat, it was still moist, flavourful and tender

For the Experience

For my grandparents' 51st wedding anniversary,they chose Princess Terrace Cafe for the dinner buffet because my grandfather loves Penang Food and the laksa served here is apparently to die for ( I wouldn't know because I can't take spicy food)

Anyway, I steered clear of the spicy dishes so can't tell you much about those but overall, I found that the buffet had it's fair share of ups and downs.

So here's what's good!1. Kway Teow in Fishcake and Chicken SoupIt sounds terribly plain and simple but i'm telling you, the broth used here is chockful with flavour! It's a must-try, you can have it after the laksa! My brother had like 2 bowls of this, it's that good.2. KuehJust try the Kueh, you can't go to a Penang buffet and not try Penang sweets! They have beancurd (which is quite good, go easy on the syrup), ban jian kuih (which is done upon ordering! You can request for no sugar, the peanut stuff is good enough actually). Oh and try that kuih(forgot the name) that you pair with the banana sticky creme sauce or something, no regrets, that sauce is addictive.3. DIY RojakThis is just so fun, you pick what you want to go into your rojak (cucumber, kang kong, mango, some fruit i don't know the name of, pineapple, tofu, cuttlefish) then you transfer it to this rattan basket, drizzle the rojak sauce over and mix it up yourself! Then scoop it onto your own plate and top with peanuts, such a delight. Plus it tastes great!4. Fried Seafood PorridgeThe name itself is exciting isn't it? I mean fried and porridge certainly is an uncommon pairing! But it tastes marvellous, a bit like eggs with soya sauce. hmm, but too much and you get that oily jelat feeling.5. Satay SauceThe cucumbers are lovely with it. The satay itself is a tad too oily and fatty for my liking. It doesn't have that meaty taste I like, it was weak. The sauce however was full of punch and I wanted to drizzle it on top of everything.6. The Clams from the Clam and Ginger SoupI don't like ginger, but I like clams! So i fished out the clams from the soup, and they were delicious. The texture is very different from the clams you get at international buffet- this is cooked and has a herbal flavour. But it's still good so yeah.7. Braised DuckThe duck was well seasoned in the sauce and wasn't too fatty. Easy to chew, quite well done.

Other stuff I had but did not react as strongly to was DIY Ice Kachang, Sweet and Sour Prawn, Popiah, Achar

p.s. You'll walk out so full! I went for dinner yesterday and am still feeling bloated 24h later...
