Treat yourself to a rich buffet for Christmas and New Year celebrations

BUFFETS are back at the Eastern and Oriental (E&O) Hotel in Penang – just in time for Christmas and New Years!

So make an appointment for happy holidays at the hotel’s Sarkies restaurant. After what has been an extremely difficult year, a little festive revelry will boost morale.

There is a Christmas Eve dinner priced at RM188 for adults (A) and RM98 for children and seniors (C / S), and a Christmas dinner at RM168 (A) and 98 RM (C / S).

Otherwise, opt for Christmas or Boxing Day lunch at RM138 (A) and RM70 (C / S). While menus vary, each spread promises to be filling and sumptuous.

The signature Java Tree Beef Wellington (top) and the Chestnut and Vanilla Yule Log (bottom) are also available in the Festive Takeaways section. – JEREMY TAN / The star

Starters include fresh salads, local bites, cold cuts, soups, and the crowd’s favorite sushi, sashimi, and shellfish on ice. But the meat section is where the must-haves are.

Roast turkey with apple and star chestnut stuffing in each spread. Complement the oven-baked beef strip loin, boneless leg of lamb or chicken roulade, all with a variety of sides and sauces.

Visit the grill for sizzling cuts of meat and seafood, the Asian corner for local specialties or the hot section for hearty international flavors. For dessert, there’s a heady mix of colorful candies and festive treats.

Game for another feast before the end of the year? Try the New Years Eve dinner at RM198 (A) and RM109 (C / S). For any deviation, diners can top up RM120 for free movement of wine, beer and spirits, or RM200 for Prosecco.

Those planning a festive get-together at home will love the hotel’s festive take-out, available until January 1 of next year. Three-day advance order is required.

Skip the hassle of cooking and order a roast turkey (450 RM), premium roast beef (600 RM), oven roast leg of lamb (400 RM), or Beef Wellington Java Tree (700 RM). Each item serves eight to 10 people.
