SUNDAY BUFFET LUNCH AT KOPITIAM @ BAYVIEW HOTEL GEORGETOWN PENANG

Posted by crizlai On November - 24 - 2019

Kopitiam @ Bayview Hotel Georgetown Penang serves a mixture of traditional local specialties and familiar Western dishes in a bright, open dining room with large murals and marble-topped tables. One of their main highlights would be their Sunday Buffet Lunch which would be served from 12.00noon until 2.30pm at an economical price of RM38nett (adult), RM35nett (senior citizen) and RM15nett (child) and you would be surprised that their selections of dishes could be quite delectable. Due to its reasonable pricing and huge demands, it’s advisable to make you’re your advance booking via +604-263 3161 (Ext. 246) to avoid any disappointment.

Sometimes, simplicity is at its best when the selection of the buffet spreads would be just adequate for your dining pleasure without hurting the pocket at all. That’s what Kopitiam @ Bayview Hotel Georgetown Penang has been stressing on – Quality vs Quantity. The main buffet spreads would consist of various dishes with higher notes on local flavors from salad, appetizer, main, desserts to local street fares. Our thumbs-ups would go to the tactfully prepared Malay-Style Fish Curry and Nyonya-Style Kapitan Chicken Curry, not forgetting their street food dishes such as their Hainanese Chicken Rice, Char Koay Teow, Laksa Kahwin, Mua Chee and so on which I personally felt tasted much better than some of those stalls outside the hotel.

The dish which attracted me most and is not found anywhere else in Penang from my knowledge was their Signature Laksa Kahwin, a combination of the best from the North and South of the Baba Nyonya community, namely the Nyonya Assam Laksa of Penang and the Nyonya Curry Laksa of Malacca. With the addition of Penang’s famous Hae Ko (petis udang/shrimp paste), it was a bowl of heavenly made dish which could be quite addictive, with or without the Penang-style laksa noodles.
