Ramadhan Fiesta at G Hotel Gurney & G Hotel Kelawai

For this Holy Month of Ramadhan, G Hotel Gurney & G Hotel Kelawai has turned Taste Café as well as SPOON into a gastronomic Ramadhan Fiesta. A feast that will leave diners beyond satisfaction. Well I was more than satisfied hehe...

And as usual without fail, Taste Café offers a lavish buka puasa spread with palate-pleasing flavour for the buffet dinner. There is so much to choose from, you will be probably not know where to start from haha..

As I stepped into Taste Café, it is always an exciting entrance for me as the first thing you see is the display of the dessert spread. Simply irresistible. 

Well before we attack the dessert counter, let's see what awaits diners for this Ramadhan.  

Starting off there is the local appetizers and salad to begin with. There is the Kerabu Perut Lembu, Kerabu Udang, Telur Masin, Sambal Kacang Ikan Bilis with a choice of house specialty sauces and condiments to go along.

You will also find Penang's all time favourite items such as the pasembur as well as the Rojak Buah. The Rojak Buah is always a not to be missed item. The shrimp paste sauce was really good. 

Create your very own salad creation back at the salad bar station. A variety of fresh greens together with an array of condiments and dressings awaits you. A little of this and that and voila, your salad is ready.

Beside it, the cold cut platters looks so gorgeous. I love how creative they got with the display. How even a simple item, was an eye catcher.

Back at the cheese corner, there few variations of cheese for you to enjoy with crackers and nuts. I was enjoying my Feta cheese with the cracker with a whole load of cashew nuts :)

Seafood lovers, this is you stop. The Seafood on Ice, where you will get your fresh prawns, mussels and also scallops.

As for the soup, there is 2 choices of soup. One is a local soup and the other is pretty unique. Something you hardly come across. The Soto Ayam Mardura soup consist of a mixture of shredded chicken, coconut milk, lemongrass cooked with spices and fresh herbs. Can you imagine the aroma and flavour it has. Mmmmmmmm 

On the other hand, this is the Creamy Moroccan Vegetable Soup.

Of course, the Bubur Lambok Telur Masin is something you should try. The Telur Masin does certainly enhance the flavour of the bubur.

Now off to some of the main dishes, I do hope there still plenty of room because there is still so much food to try. Local Malay delights such as Nasi Kurma, Grill BBQ Chicken Chop, Udang Tiga Rasa, Sotong Goreng Kunyit Bercili and Grill Lamb Chop, is spotted on the buffet spread. Everything looked so delicious. The only thing for me to do was to take a little of each. 

Nasi Kurma, something interesting as you hardly come across such. The dates does give the rice a nice fragrant aroma.

Penang Mee Goreng Mamak

Rendang Daging Minang

Lebanon Sausage 

Thai Roasted Duck Curry

Tunisian Egg with Tomato and Minced Chicken Chili Pepper

Ikan Panggang 

Vegetable Tagin

A bit of this and this and that, and you have a plate filled with nasi kurma that goes well with all the other dishes. 

We were liucky as during that day a whole lamb was spotted back at the Carving Station. I was told that different days, the menu changes therefore, on some days you may find Roasted Lamb Legs. The lamb is juicy, tender and rich in flavour.

The action stall offers items such as fried noodles, Asam Laksa, Roti John, Pisang Goreng and Yam Goreng. 

Did you know that Taste Café is the first cafe in Penang to actually BBQ grill using Lava Stones? Yes you read that right, Lava Stones. Not some artificial stone named Lava Stone, but the real stones from Indonesia. The usage of Lava Stones, promises succulent meat and seafood as it maintains the moisture of the food and does not give your that charcoal burnt aroma.

Now the moment we or shall I say I have been waiting for. To end the meal with a whole load of sweet treats.

Quench your thirst with drinks such as Sirap Limau, Soya Bean and Corn Drink.

There is also a Teh Tarik corner. If you are lucky, you could spot the waiter pulling a stunt or 2.

There is a mixture of local kuih and international fare too.

Pengat Pisang

The international desserts are something nobody can resist. It's presented in beautiful display that young and adults are attracted to it even me too. Hands off those are all mine haha..

Baked Cheese Cake

This next item is a highlight. Guess what's in it? If durian was your guess then you are right :)
This is the Durian Mousse, for someone who does not really fancy Durian, this was really good I must say. 

Pandan Kaya Cake

Chocolate Marquise

Marble Swiss Roll

Bread & Butter Pudding

How about some icy cool treats like Chendol and Gelato.

The Chocolate Fondue is so welcoming. A magical pot of melted chocolate, dip your fruits in it and enjoy every bite of it.

Last but not least, a variations of fresh tropical fruits.

So as you can see, there is a whole load of wholesome goodies awaits one when you dine at Taste Café. You may also opt to dine at SPOON back at G Hotel Kelawai too.
