Mustika Rasa Buffet Dinner at Lemongrass, Hotel Neo+ Penang

Last week, I went to Lemongrass restaurant at Hotel Neo+ Penang for their Mustika Rasa Buffet Dinner which is for their Ramadhan 2018 buffet.

 

Hotel Neo+ Penang Lemongrass Ramadhan buffet dinner

 

Even though their Ramadhan buffet is going to end on 10 June 2018, which is soon, you can still visit their Lemongrass restaurant for breakfast. It would be best to give their hotel a call before visiting their restaurant in case they are not serving on that day. The hotel number is in the picture of the flyer in this post and also at the end of this post. Their Ramadhan buffet is also available upon prior reservations only so if you are thinking of going there, it’s best to give a call to the hotel before going to check if their buffet is on for that night.

 

Here is a video I made regarding the buffet dinner I went to that night at Lemongrass : https://youtu.be/UtnmAH7YhKY

 

Their nasi briyani kambing (Briyani rice with mutton) was really delicious.  The sauce for the roasted lamb was tangy-lishly tasty. Somehow if you combine the sauce with the briyani and eat it with the lamb, it tastes really good. I’m salivating thinking about their briyani with the lamb sauce. It was so good that I had 2 servings of these even after I had plates of other types of food.

 

No need to tipu-tipu malulah (translation : faked shy). I may be petite size that can fit into dress size 6 but I can eat. Some more this is buffet, so their buffet spread is for people to eat as much as they can. Takkan leave for the plates to display only. The plate can’t eat the food and you wouldn’t want to leave the food there until it gets fermented. Only if busy or not convenient to eat, then I won’t be eating much. If buffet, sila makan lebih, if not the food will be wasted.

 

They recommended their chicken tomyam soup which I included in the video for you to see. I don’t want to eat spicy food, so I tried their sup ayam (chicken soup) instead. Their chicken soup was tasty too and reminded me of the famous sup kambing (mutton soup) that you can find at well-known nasi kandar stores in Penang. Their chicken satay was nicely made and tasted alright.

 

I like how they presented their dessert section which looked fancy with changing colourful lightings shining on them. It’s like you’re at the dance floor. You can do some dance moves while choosing what dessert to eat. They had ice-cream as well at their dessert section. The only problem was that I chose a secluded area to sit at, near the dessert area because I like the privacy but the air-conditioning wasn’t turned on, so it was a bit hot, so I had to change seats. After moving to somewhere in the middle of the restaurant, it was comfortable in terms of temperature as their air-con was turned on but it was a bit noisy as they started re-arranging the place a bit too early before the actual buffet ended.

 

Ambience is as important as food, especially being in events, I understand this concept. While it’s true that some good food can be found in the streets but at this moment with skin condition that can’t stand too warm places, I have limited tolerance for such places which would not let me enjoy my food there. At this Lemongrass’ buffet, you can enjoy the local delicacies in a better setting, which these food would normally be served at stalls or shops that do not have air-con installed or turned on. These few days, Malaysian have been seeing a lot of news in the internet about nasi kandar places being closed down for lack of hygiene reasons. Lemongrass is clean and has no flies at their buffet and seating area, so it’s a better place to have your local dishes.

 

Overall it was good in terms of food where they had a decent choice of food spread for you to choose from, with food suitable for ramadhan (e.g. satay, briyani, lamb, buah kurma) and also suitable as a usual average-sized buffet spread where they have local, Malay dishes, Chinese-style dishes, Indian-style dishes and minimal western food to choose from.

Anyway, before the 15th day of CNY is over, I wish you a Happy Chinese New Year and hope you had fun celebrating Chap Goh Meh.
