 What's a proper dinner without a bowl of hearty soup?
The menu features Double Boiled Sea Treasure Herbal Soup which is filled with all the premium ingredients. The soup is quite delicious where you can taste the essence of each ingredients within a bowl of soup, perhaps by using double boiled method can further enhance the flavour of the soup.

Penangites sure know that E&O Hotel serves one of the best roast ducks in Penang. 
This Chinese New Year Abundance Menu also feature their E&O Signature Roast Duck served with their signature duck sauce and condiments. 
As usual, their roast ducks are crispy on the outside and juicy tender on the inside, which makes you feel like having it again and again.

with Premium Soya Sauce and Garden Greens

Wok Fried Broccoli with Hericum Mushroom
served with Fatt Choy, Sea Cucumber & Sea Asparagus.
This is basically the dishes that made me feel super CNY-ish with all the ingredients that I usually see only during Chinese New Year. The Hericum Mushroom is so soft and flavoured with the braised sauce, definitely my favourite dish from the menu. 

    Golden Fried King Prawns
with Salted Egg and Curry Leaf
What's a complete dinner without some big sized prawns? It is always the best dish and we always hope that someone will give us additional prawns so we can have more that one. 
You can expect some bigger prawns here as they cook with King Prawns and the size is just nice for one person. 

"Hong Kong" Style Ee Fu Noodles
with prawn, sea cucumber and crab meat gravy
The last dish before dessert is always some noodle or rice dish which to fulfill your stomach if you are still not full from all the previous dishes.
This menu features a hearty dish with starchy sauce, only thing I don't like wats the condiments on top especially the coriander. 

Special Homemade Chendol Cake
served with brown sugar and coconut cream.
