Ramadhan Buffet Dinner @ The Eatery, Four Points by Sheraton Penang‏

Other than E&O hotel, there are some other hotels that offer Ramadhan Buka Puasa meals for all our muslim friends.
Opened for less than a year, as one of the top hotel in Penang,  Four Points by Sheraton Penang is offering Ramadan Buffet for the first time.
The Ramadan Buffet dinner is priced at RM 78++ per pax, as for children aged from 3 - 12 years old will be entitled for a 50% discount.
The dishes are vary from day to day, so that all the chefs can bring out their different specialties and giving their customers different surprises everyday.

The Ramadhan Buffet by Four Points is available from 29th of June until 28th of July, priced at RM 78.00++ per pax, additional discounts with certain bank credit cards.

This is my first time in Four Points by Sheraton for food review, The eatery is the name of their restaurant, you can dine while enjoying the sea view here, kinda relax though

The swimming pool is also located next to The eatery, this is also a nice place to stay as they also have private access to the beach.

Bubur Lambuk & Sup Ekor is what you will usually find in most of the Ramadhan Buffet Dinner, and Four Points also have their very own Bubur Lambuk that is different from other hotels. The Bubur Lambuk can taste different depending on how the chef cook it and the ingredients that they add. 

There are various Malay dishes for the buffet, I'm pretty sure that it will suit Malaysian.

Kari Ikan, quite a must for Ramadhan dishes though, it all depends of what type of curry you cook with.
In fact I really like the chef's cooking style of frying the fish before cooking it.

Ayam Rendang, it was quite good and not too spicy for me. The mixture of the herbs are just nice that this dish tasted well. 

Ikan Masak Kicap is one of the best dish for that night. I really like the chef fried fishes to crisp and then only cook with soy sauce. Kinda great to include this dish into their Ramadhan buffet though

Daging Masak Kurma, Kurma is one of my favourite curry, but due to I don't take beef, I didn't try this dish.
But it really attracts me, and I have the strong urge to try the curry though. How I wish that it was lamb so that I can try this!

Kai Lan Ikan Masin, they don't have much choices for vegetable, but this one is really good as they have added some salted fish into the dish. I'm also glad that the vegetables are not overcooked which is commonly happened in most of the hotels buffet as they keep heating it to keep it warm.

Sayur Campuran, there are mushrooms, corns and other vegetables in this dish and it is kinda chinese style though. That's another vegetable dish in the Ramadhan Buffet. 

Tempura Prawns and Calamari Rings, look kinda unusual in Ramadhan buffet right? But the chef mixed some of his own specialties in the buffet dinner to make it more varieties. And that is why you may find all sorts of Asian delights in their Ramadhan buffet.

Mussels! One of my favourite! I just realized that Kepah can also refer to Mussels, and this dish is called Kepah Masak Kunyit, which is rather good to keep the mussels juicy while absorbing the yellow ginger sauce herbs sauce.

Ayam Masak Gulai, also one of my favourite dish of the night. Curry chicken is always my favourite dish whenever I visit economy rice stall, and the curry chicken here just suit my taste and I like it.

Udang Masak Gulai, I personally find that this dish was a bit too spicy. But anyway, I don't really take much of this because I'm just lazy to remove the prawn shells. 

Daging Apor, I don't take beef so I didn't try this either.

Terung Belacan, I really like brinjal but I find that it was a little bit overcooked. 

Other than those Malay dishes, they also have like soup noodles and other appetizers.

The appetizers and sauce are vary, some special ones are like Sambal Tempoyak, Sambal Hijau, Cincaluk and etc.

Ulam Raja, I think that it is a must for every buffet dinner.

Prawn crackers and other crackers, another favourite of the night

Fresh fruits, I'm surprised to find that they also have like Rambutan, dragon fruits and a lot of other fruits are also available here.

Toppings for Ice Cream

They also have like nyonya kuih and pastries.
But I find that it is not much of varieties, they could have remove some of the fruits and add more desserts into their buffet.

Kurma, Kuih Kapit and other Malay snacks

They also have drinks that what our muslim friends will serve whenever we attend to their Open House party during Raya.

Mixed Fruit Cocktail, one of the bloggers' favourite drink of the night.

Other than the dessert corner, everything is good at The Eatery. 
I do hope that I would have another chance to review at their buffet again, not just the Ramadhan Buffet.
There's an additional 6% charge for the government tax.
