BBQ Seafood Buffet Part 2
ATTENTION! Due to many complaints received in my blog’s comments on G Hotel’s BBQ Seafood Dinner, please be informed vkeong.com no longer recommends this. From my experience it was fine but many people complained about the food quality, variety and some even complained of discomfort after that. So all G Hotel BBQ Seafood related posts will serve only as a reference for the food you will find there. I regret any bad experiences you’ve had if you went for the buffet after viewing my blog. Thank you.
The [tag]seafood[/tag] counter is actually only one third of the restaurant area. The other two being the dessert counter I have blogged earlier and local cuisine. So lets take a closer look at the seafood first.
I am guessing that the prawns are cook by either steaming or boiling them. There are also mussels, fresh oysters, crabs and crab salad served with fish roe.
Raw salmon is placed in a separate container. I didn’t dare to take this lol, I am still having phobia towards salmon. Anyway I did try a small piece and found it to be sweet and very fresh. But that’s really the limit for me lol.
Some sort of squid cake that can usually be found while eating steamboat. Here it is fried and topped with sweet sour sauce. Nothing spectacular really.
This is another version of the dish, but covered with mayonaise instead.
This was my first plate of buffet that night, a few prawns, [tag]oyster[/tag] and mussel. It was my second attempt at raw oyster in my life. A friend of mine told me that oysters are the most expensive and worth to eat in [tag]buffet[/tag]. So I tried to follow his advice. Luckily the oysters were really fresh and I quite enjoyed it.
The salad crabs look nice and tempting but the taste is not that good. It’s sourish with a bit of crab meat and fruit chunks. It’s really a creative way of representing the dish using the shells though. Yeah there’s still no photos of the [tag]BBQ[/tag] seafood yet, they will appear in the next post, promise

I have this sudden interest in roe crab for steamboat after my last visit to Ho Ho. After researching for a bit I found that there is another good steamboat restaurant in Kepong called Hao Jie that features roe crabs prominently on their menu. The restaurant was full house during the weekend and we were

Ayam Penyet AP, an affordable restaurant serving the delicious and addictive Indonesian cuisine called Ayam Penyet, loosely translated to smashed fried chicken. It is a perfect alternative to the already over-mushroomed kopitiam franchises. Not only the quality is getting worse, portion is getting smaller and prices are always increasing. Imagine, after I finished my cuppa

Old Green House restaurant (老青屋) is a popular place among Penangites to have Hokkien Mee (or Prawn Noodle in other Malaysian states) either as dinner or supper.

**Nov 2001 update: Life Centre is undergoing major renovations but Munakata is still open for business as usual. About a year ago I went to Munakata‘s Japanese Buffet and I was happy with their authentic Japanese dishes served in the ala-carte buffet. Since then I have been to a couple of Japanese buffets with some

Hidden behind Istana Negara along Jalan Bellamy is an array of ikan bakar stalls next to each other forming a medan ikan bakar. Despite its secluded location it gets extremely crowded especially during lunch hour. Not knowing which stall to go for, we chose Gerai No.3 that was the busiest among all. Three huge frying
