Food from many cultures..... and still tasty

The outstanding feature of this dinner buffet is that it has food to satisfy the tastebuds of most Asian and Western cultures,  and dishes that are still tasty.

We were invited to their new concept of buffet - depending on the day you dine,  you get different types of food.  Mondays to Thursdays for Penang, Friday for crazy crab day, Sat - sensational seafood, and Sunday - International.  With varying per head prices.

Food:  It was not possible to try all the dishes but I will break it down into several categories.

Penang style:  Their char kway teow, penang assam laksa and Malaysian style hokkien mee were very good.  In particular the hokkien mee, which is served with large pig's intestines,  stewed pork ribs and a rich prawny soup.  The Penang style Indian rojak is unique but has a rather different taste from our Indian rojak. 

Japanese:  The shashimi (tuna, swordfish, salmon, vinegared mackerel, octopus and egg) were tasty.  I had two helpings of the swordfish, octopus and salmon.  Freshly cut in front of you and served daintily.  Sushi was OK but lacked the variety.

Asian Cooked dishes:  meat dishes from Penang, India, China were also served but I only had a teaspooonful for taste.  They all tasted good.  

Starters:  A full spread of salad bar, minestrone soup with bread and butter (for the Western palate),  pomelo salad with prawns in har bee for the locals, and fruit rojak for the vegetarians.  Freshly rolled popiah, with a strong prawn taste (different from Singapore)

Should mention that we had the chance to try crabs done two other ways,  other than the chilli crab that was served with the regular Penang buffet.  Only on Friday are crabs offered, done in 10 different ways. But at a higher per head price. We tasted the pepper crab, and the salted egg crab.  The crabs are steamed and not fried, so they're not so oily and greasy as with crabs done elsewhere.  No oily fingers after eating.  The salted egg crab was tasty but done like a sauce,  instead of fried to a crisp.  The chilli crab could have been better done but taste was OK.  Don't expect crabs of the standard of Jumbo seafood as this is bulk cooking, but reasonably tasty and fresh as it should be.

Desserts:  Durian pengget with glutinous rice,  ice cream, fresh fruits, chng tng (longan drink), nyonya cake (only reasonably good), coffee and tea.

Conclusion:  A good buffet spread with a large variety of food from many countries that is complete and most dishes are well prepared and tasty.

Avoid if possible

Went for the Crab Buffet on 4 Oct.
Quite a few Crab dishes including Chilli Crab, Salted egg Crab, herbal Crab , etc.
It was Pretty good the 1st round but on my 2nd helping, realised that the standard was not consistent. Besides the Crabs, there were also live cooking stations offering Char Kuey

Crazy Crab Feast

My friend and I were invited to try out Parkroyal on Kitchener Road's Spice Brasserie some time ago where they introduce us to their crab buffet and Penang Food buffet.

During our visit, I was impressed by the ambience at Spice Brasserie, it was very spacious as compared to Plaza Brasserie and look
