The Original Macam Macam ada buffet

If you have attended it before ITS BACK! if you havent before, ITS HERE! Held in conjunction with the Muslim fasting month of Ramadan, the massive buffet is back in town from 1st to 29th of August 2011 at Grand Margherita Hotel.

We have had many days of dry weather and would you know it it rained on the day of the launching. Therefore there were heavy traffic and I arrived around 7pm. Suppose to reach at 630 ah! (excuses). Anyways, this year the buffet boasts over 200 choices of food.. really two hundred varieties. I probably tasted like 8-10 items only.

In case you got lost amongst the food, there were signs available to direct you to the right places XD

And because of the of rain, we could not mingle around the Poolside Pavilion which overlooks the Sarawak River. Which made the venue very packed as everyone was trying to avoid getting wet. 

There were so many people and so much food to be had! Did I mention 200 choices? :P Here are some proof

I'm just wondering, why does he has a sakkat on? Hmm... 

Wuih~ familiar face! 

This fellow also very familiar~ 

Anyways the food does not disappoint. Seriously, every item I tried was delicious. Maybe the Air Bandung was less sweet (which was good thing) it was pretty much perfect. 

This was excellent, Penang noodles.

Fried Rice is Nice

I'm not sure about you but I love fried rice. And I think most people would also love a nice plate fried rice. ;)

Have you ever seen so much fried rice before? hehe Orchid Garden Coffee House at Grand Margherita Hotel is having a promotion called Fried Rice Is Nice. From 1st December till 19th December 2010. As you can see from the picture above, they have TEN different type of fried rice available.

Since there were so many and so few of us, Anna, Rose, and Yien Yien (and Eileen) we chose 6 of the 10 to try. What a filling lunch!

While waiting for the food to arrive everyone was photographing everything nearby and on the table.

Gourmet October at Grand Margherita Hotel

It seems that Grand Margherita Hotel (GMH) is pulling all the stops for this month of October. If you are like me who enjoy Chinese Barbecue or as GMH calls it "XAO LUCK" you should head to Meisan Restaurant

Before we get any further, the dishes were from two restaurants in GMH, namely Meisan Restaurant and Orchid Garden Coffee House. So if you see anything that is Char-broiled its from Orchid Garden Coffee House, from their STEAK YOUR CLAIM menu! Its happening for both lunch and dinner from Monday to Thursdays, try and catch me there ! If its anything Baked, or Roasted its from Meisan Restaurant's XAO LUCK menu. 

Char-Broiled Elephant Rib

I never heard of Charbroiled (shame on me, must get out more) before so this is what I found out from Wiki, the dictionary of the world

Charbroiling refers to grilling on a surface with wide raised ridges, to the point of having the food slightly charred in texture. This is often referred to simply as grilling in most places outside the US. The phrase "put it in the broiler" is translated as "put it over/under the grill."

Nevertheless this dish is as Eileen put it, sinful

Char-Broiled Elephant RibThe meat was soft and juicy. Excellent !

Roasted Duck Fillet & Duck Floss 'Cantonese Style'I could not decide which photo I like better, the one above or the one below. haha ! 

Roasted Duck Fillet & Duck Floss 'Cantonese Style'Well I wish the background was better, but we do what we can.
