Peranakan Cuisine, Eastin Hotel Penang

In conjunction with welcoming the month of July, Eastin Hotel, Penang, introduces their Peranakan Cuisine for the upcoming July promotion. Hence, there are variety of specialty offered at Swez Brasserie.

I was just another lucky brat to be one of the first to be invited to feast on the Peranakan Cuisine. Well, as a starter, Pie Tee Cup with Zu Hu Char was served. I would say it is flavourful as it consists of dried Shitake mushrooms, cuttlefish, and carrots. The pai tee cup would be crispy if it is serve fresh! Otherwise, it will turn up soggy.

Deep Fried Chicken Lobak served with Deep Fried Bean Curd and homemade sauce. photo DSC_1092_zps4763d5e8.jpg photo DSC_1093_zpsbe1daf78.jpg

Kiam Chai Ark (Salted Duck Soup)! My all time favourite. It was sourish and a bit of spiciness. It was really appetizing and I really like it!  photo DSC_1084_zpsef985b7e.jpg

Assam Prawns turned out to be a bit sweeter and sourish at the same time.  photo DSC_1075_zps251c481f.jpg

Nasi Ulam, goes very well with the curry! photo DSC_1080_zpsd4974573.jpg

Curry Kapitan Chicken was another great dish too. It was not spicy and I love the original fragrance of the curry leaf. photo DSC_1076_zpsbb8f9fa5.jpg

Ikan Gulai Tumis was another sweet dish served. Not much of fragrance of the spices, which I don’t favour this dish. photo DSC_1082_zpsc8f31905.jpg

Sambal Pucuk Ubi, another of my favourite dish. Though it is a bit saltish with a mild spiciness, it tastes just great! photo DSC_1094_zps80aa735d.jpg

Peranakan cuisine is always famous for its Nyonya Kuih. Here, we were served with assorted Nyonya Kuih and the best thing about it is that it isn’t that sweet to my surprise which I would say this would be very much preferred! photo DSC_1079_zpsb5827b8d.jpg

Black Glutinous Rice Porridge which is locally known as Bee Koh Moi tasted very sweet. I didn’t really get to taste much of the natural blend as the sweetness overwhelmed the taste.
