Eastin Hotel Penang Chinese New Year Food Review
My wife and I are pleased to be invited to the food review of Eastin Hotel Penang. It has been our experience that this hotel offers excellent Chinese New Year meals - just see our review from last year. Well, to our delight, it is just as good this year.
As is customary, we started our dinner by tossing the Fortune Yee Sang. After we have had the restaurant team gather together for a group shot, all the members of the local social media community joined in to toss the Yee Sang. We made a wonderful mess - which for this particular purpose, signals good luck and an auspicious year ahead for Eastin.
Knowing that my stomach has limited space, I zoomed in on my favourites. For this buffet, they undoubtedly include the Poon Choi ("Basin of Abundance"). Another item that I love very much (and returned for seconds) was the mantis prawns fried with salted egg yolk. Oh, what a great taste!
Now it's my pleasure to show you some of the items we ate at Eastin Hotel Penang's food review.
