BBQ Seafood Buffet Part 3
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.
This is the BBQ counter outside the restaurant, which is also at the smoking area. All you have to do is pick the seafood you want and pass to the chefs who will barbecue it for you. The options available are [tag]lobster[/tag], prawn, salmon, cod fish, squid, crab, skewer, garlic bread, beef patty and stingray.
The skewers have onion, prawn, green and red pepper, mussel and fish. I eat all except the peppers lol Between the prawns and the fish are the lobsters. Well they aren’t exactly American Lobster but the smaller ones. Last I saw hypermarkets are selling them at RM60 per kilogramme. Expensive stuff.
Once you have ordered the seafood, you may choose to stay and wait or have them delivered to your seat. The latter would be risky because someone may take it, don’t expect the chefs to remember which is whose orders. This is my first plate of BBQ Seafood. A couple of prawns, skewers, lobster, beef patty and a tiny piece of stingray. Avoid the beef patty at all cost, it was tasteless and kinda hard. Terrible stuff.
The way the chefs barbecue the seafood is very simple, they just sprinkle some spice (I guess salt) on it. The lobster’s meat is tender and sweet but some may have a tad too much salt sprinkled on, making them inedible.
Then we continued with a bowl of rojak. We were very generous with the peanuts lol.
Followed by vanilla and chocolate ice-cream.
Then we decided to have more. Some crackers, hand rolled sushi and crabs.
Lastly, some cakes for dessert to end the meal. I must say it were the cakes that actually made us full lol.
For those interested in this [tag]BBQ[/tag] [tag]Seafood Buffet[/tag], it’s RM68 per person excluding 10% service tax and 5% government tax. It’s located within [tag]G Hotel[/tag] just beside Gurney Plaza. You can’t possibly miss this place.

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
