Now let's see they are offering this year!

Lone Pine Hotel Penang is one of the best hotel in Penang and received numerous awards for best beach hotel, best hotels in Penang and many more. It is located at the Batu Ferringhi area, one of the best attractions in Penang. 

I personally like the swimming pool so much, it would be great if I get to chill by the pool one day.

Orange colour is rather attractive, don't you think?

The outdoor seatings

The place is pretty spacious, I believe they can fit in more than 200 pax, also very suitable for a private dining or booking for special occasions.

The beverage counter.

Other than buffet, normally The Bungalow also selling their a la carte menu. Available daily.

Pine trees are surrounding the place, totally match the name of the hotel.

The appetizers are kind variety from Pineapple Salad, Calamari Salad, Kerabu Chicken Salad, Glass Noodle Salad, Tuna Nicoise Salad, and Japanese Baby Octopus Salad.
All are rather appetizing and served as a great starter to get you ready for your feast.

Some of our favourite seafoods. It was indeed a pleasant surprise to raw oysters here on the menu of The Bungalow @ Lone Pine Hotel Penang, which is one of my top favourite food and I'm really glad that they are really fresh and delicious!
I had 8 of them in a night!

Other options are sashimi like Salmon, Tuna, and Butter Fish.
They were really fresh and delish!

One of the rare food you will find these day in Penang.
Pie Tee is also available on the buffet spread, how glad that you can DIY your own pie tee with some crab meat and fried chinese turnip.

Cold cuts on the spread.

Poh Piah

What really caught my attention was this whole Unagi presented on the spread.
Unagi is not something cheap and not many restaurant will serve it on their buffet spread. I'm really glad to find that it is available here at The Bungalow @ Lone Pine Hotel Penang.

Smoked Salmon Slices

Assorted Sushi, choices of salmon, prawns, avocado, tuna and many more.

Below are some of the highlights for their Prosperity Buffet Lunch and Prosperity Buffet Dinner, which are some of the authentic Chinese New Year dishes for us to celebrate this special season.

Slow Braised Duck with Vegetables
I like how the duck was cooked. It was properly marinated and the slow cook method made it soft and smooth. Don't even have to worry about elder people who can't really bite hard.

Deep Fried Golden Prawn
One of my favourite ways of cooking prawns. I love the butter taste I can find from the prawns.
The prawns were real fresh and juicy!

Deep Fried Red Lion Fish with Spicy Sauce
A must for Chinese, Fish dish!
It was not too hot which is also suitable for kids.

Braised Mixed Mushroom with Sea Moss and Fried Oyster in Beancurd Skin
This is really one of the best authentic Chinese dishes I've had. I like the dried oysters and also the broccoli that are perfectly done. Just the way I like it.

Chicken Curry Kapitan
Perhaps this dish is not so Chinese but it is good for those who prefer some spicy dish on the menu.

Yam and Shrimp Fried Rice Wrapped with Lotus Leaf
It is as appetizing as how it looks, the rice smells so good with the fragrant from yam and lotus leaf.

Some highlights of the night would be the below Char Siew Lamb & Char Siew Chicken.
They are perfect for Chinese New Year feast, only the lamb could be better if it is juicier.

At the Grilling Station, you will find all the freshly grilled meats and seafood. The chef will prepare them upon your order to make sure the food is hot and fresh.

Roasted Duck, best to go with the Duck Sauce.

Fried Poh Piah & Fried Potato Samosa

Seafood Pumpkin Soup, good to go with the Assorted Breads.

Freshly baked breads

I find the dessert corner is pretty cute with all the specially prepared cakes & tarts for Chinese New Year.
Left: Cheese Cake, Walnut Tarts & Mandarin Orange Tarts
Right: Chocolate Brownies, Cream Caramel Pudding & Orange Cake

Fresh Fruit Platter

Some of the Assorted Chinese New Year Cookies!
Do you love Kuih Kapit (a.k.a. Chinese Love Letters Crepe) as much as I do?

One friendly reminder to all guest, DO NOT WASTE FOOD.

Thanks to the team of Lone Pine Hotel Penang who have prepared a GIANT Yee Sang for all the media on that night.
The monkey face is really one of the cutest Yee Sang I've ever seen, it is so lovely and we are also very reluctant to destroy such a cute yee sang.

Getting ready!

Chefs starting to add in the toppings and the sauces.

1, 2, 3..... Let's toss!
Apart from tossing the yee sang, some people are also very busy taking photos and videos like me.
*Receive a complimentary plate of Yee Sang when you book a table for 6 pax and above*

Some of the dishes I've had that night, look at these Unagi!!!

Some of my favourite seafood and sashimi!

There were too many choices available that I didn't really manage to try them all. But I'm looking forward to go back again next time.

Raw oysters, I had total 8 oysters on that night.
The special garlic chilli sauce was awesomely delicious and perfectly matched the raw oysters!
