Spice Market Cafe International Buffet @ Rasa Sayang Hotel

The Famous 6 Star Rasa Sayang Hotel, Penang

We reached there 15 minutes early and we walked around taking photos of this beautiful place.

The interior

The graden - trees, trees & trees...ooh...I love the trees there!

As a true Penangite, we ate our heart's worth. The spread was marvelous - there is everything imaginable there (except for fresh oysters!). As it is an International Buffet, there were many choices: Chinese, Malay, Italian, Japanese, etc.

Of course I ate those slipper lobsters, yabbies, raw salmon, etc. I mean, when was the last time I had lobsters? Though only steamed, they taste very sweet and fresh. I loved dipping them with the garlic tartar sauce and the wasabi cream sauce.

Look at the number of servings I had. Ten. Sepuluh. 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10. Damn!
And I even took home those lollies and gummy sweets :)
I could not resist those salmon at almost every time I walked around the buffet spread.

(For buffet spread pics, I have uploaded them into my facebook account)

All the food I ate....sinfully fattening!

So was it good? Well, those international culinary...chicken, lamb, etc were not so tasty. Some were even rather bland with the exception of the satay (Malay) and the raw salmon (Jap) and soft-shell crab, pan-wok prawns (Chinese).
I love the cold dishes though. The sun-dried tomatoes and smoked salmon was really good.

And I absolutely heart the desert spread.
The blueberry cheesecake was to die for.
The chocolate cake and moist chocolate cake were simple delicious - with those bitter and rich chocolatey taste.
And the fruits and marshmallows with chocolate fountain - my all-time favourite.

But overall, we ate our money's worth I guess.
With the Buy 1 Free 1 promo, it is definitely worth it. With just RM52++ per person, I guess the price is OK especially since I got to sink my teeth into the blueberry cheesecake. It melts in my mouth.

Guess what, I even saw Pheh Shean and Eng Jin there. What a coincidence! We girls took a pic together of course!

And lastly, a pic of the 2 of us!

Peter says our lives are shorten everytime we go for buffet. This is because we always ate 'til we were bloated and could eat no more.
For now, no more buffet for us until the end of this year please.
