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.
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!
Assam Prawns turned out to be a bit sweeter and sourish at the same time.
Curry Kapitan Chicken was another great dish too. It was not spicy and I love the original fragrance of the curry leaf.
Ikan Gulai Tumis was another sweet dish served. Not much of fragrance of the spices, which I don’t favour this dish.
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!
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.
