Songkran Sawadee Pee Mai Festival @ Swez Brasserie, Eastin Hotel Penang

It's been years since I last visited Eastin Hotel for their food.
I was rather happy to be invited again to their food review for this coming Songkran Festival.
Many thanks to Eastin Hotel for hosted us that evening with all the lovely Thai Food.

Eastin Hotel is located next to Queensbay Mall, also very close to the industrial area which serves as the one of the best place for lunch. This is why Eastin have come out with their Songkran Sawadee Pee Mai Festival Buffet Lunch to celebrate this Songkran Festival together with some signature Thai dishes and desserts. 

Swez Brasserie is the food outlet of Eastin Hotel Penang, they are available daily during lunch time and weekends for buffet dinner for their Seafood Extravaganza buffet theme.

As mentioned earlier, their buffet lunch promotions for month of April would be Songkran Sawadee Pee Mai, which celebrates the "New Year" of Thailand together with some scrumptious authentic Thai dishes.

Lab Gai 
Spicy Minced Chicken Salad with Roasted Rice and Chilli Powder

Yam Hua Plee Sai Goong
Banana Flower Spicy Salad with Shrimp and Glass Noodles
I'm rather into this spicy glass noodle which will stimulate your taste bud and rather appetizing.
This salad just make you feel like you are ready for more food 

Yam Talay
Spicy Seafood Salad with Fresh Herbs and Lime Spicy Dressing
This salad was quite spicy, but it was just perfect with all the fresh seafood that they have used in this salad. Even the squid was just perfectly cooked and shrimp was chewy.

Nam Prik Long Rue
Thai Shrimp Paste and Salted Egg Dip with Boiled & Fresh Vegetables

Nuae Yang Nam Tok
Grilled Beef Spicy Salad with Ground Roasted Sticky Rice

Geang Keaw Whan Gai
Chicken Green Curry with Eggplants and Basil
One of my favourite of the night, the green curry was better than my expectation and very flavourful.
The green curry sauce was quite thick, but not too oily nor spicy so it would be just great to go with some rice.

Pla Kapong Phad Khuenchaiy
Stir Fried Snapper with Celery and Oyster Sauce

Tao Hoo Lod Phad Khuenchaiy
Stir  Fried Tofu with Celery & Oyster Sauce

Phad Preaw Whan Talay
Stir Fried Crispy Seafood and Cucumber with Sweet & Sour Sauce
The sweet & sour sauce in this dish was rather thick. but it went perfectly with the crispy seafood and cucumber. Especially the shrimp and squid. 

Phad Pak Ruam Nam Man Hoiy
Stir Fried Mixed Vegetables with Oyster Sauce

Kao Phad Poo
Fried Steamed Rice with Crab Meat
I was feeling rather weird why the rice was quite soft when I had it, then I realized it was steamed rice that they used for this fried rice. It wasn't too flavourful nor too spicy, but it will just perfect to go with all the Thai hot dishes.

Phat Khi Mao Kai
Spicy Stir Fried Minced Chicken with Basil
If you have read my other Thai food review posts. You would have know that this is one of my favourite Thai dishes. And this dish in Swez Brasserie doesn't disappoint me at all. 

Geang Juide Mara Sai Gai
Bitter Gourd Soup with Chicken
This soup was rather appetizing as it was slightly spicy, the spicyness was from the pepper.
This soup tasted similar like pork belly soup though, but for sure it is a "Halal" one

Tom Yam Goong
Spicy Prawns Soup with Lemongrass & Galangal Lime Juice
Tom yam is a must in Thai food, and the Tom Yam here was just good to me. But Chloe did complained that it was a bit too sour to her liking.

Kao Neaw Mamuang
Mango Sticky Rice
This dessert was simply superb, purely because of the coconut milk they used are very fresh and the sticky rice was cooked to perfection. Mango was rather sweet too.

Bua Loy Sam Si
Treeo Rice Dumpling in Sweet Coconut Soup

Packthong Sakaya
Steamed Eggs Custard in Pumpkin
This is my second time trying this dessert, and I'm pretty sure that I'm gonna order this again whenever it is available on the menu. Because I simply love it!

Tap Thim Krawp
Water Chestnut with Jack Fruit in Coconut Ice Syrup
I'm very happy to find my favourite dessert here at Swez Brasserie! The jackfruit they used were very fresh and cutting it into smaller pieces would be just perfect. Water chestnut in the desserts were very crispy too. This desserts is simply perfect!

Assorted Fruits Planner

I'm a happy boy whenever I get to have Thai food, and the Thai dishes in Swez Brasserie were very satisfying. I'm sure this would be one of the best choice.
But too bad it is only available on this month of April. 

This buffet lunch would be just perfect for those who are working around the industrial area as Eastin Hotel is located just nearby. Be sure to book your table to avoid disappointments as this promotions will be available on April only.
