THE palate-pleasing flavours of Sarkies Corner at Eastern and Oriental (E&O) Hotel in Penang beckon all this festive season and beyond.
Choose from an eclectic selection of Malaysian favourites and international dishes on its a la carte menu, available from 11am to 11pm daily.
Recommended starters include the signature E&O Caesar Salad, which can be luxed up with grilled salmon, jumbo prawns, or chicken breast.
For something crunchier, the All Crispy basket with prawn fritters, seafood money bags, potato samosas, vegetable spring rolls, green papaya salad and sour plum dip fits the bill.
On the Western side of mains are grill items like Peppered Norwegian Salmon with Parsley Butter, Lamb Chops with Provencal Herbs, and Australian Beef Rib Eye with Pepper and Herb Sauce.
All come with a bouquet of vegetables as well as a choice of shoestring fries or farmer- style, skin-on potato wedges.
Pasta lovers will be satiated with the Agnolotti alla Aragosta which has decadent lobster raviolis in a rich parsley cream, or the Squid Ink Tagliolini with chunky assorted seafood.
Take tastebuds down the streets of Penang, minus the heat and smoke, with hearty helpings of popular hawker fare such as Asam Laksa, Char Koay Teow, Wanton Noodle Soup or Prawn Mee.
If hankering for something with rice, the Nasi Lemak, Hainan-style Chicken Rice, Roasted Duck Rice or Chicken Curry Kapitan will fill you up.
The Malaysian Satay with a dozen succulent beef and chicken skewers should go down well with everyone. Sweets on the menu range from Cendol Cake to Ginger Creme Brulee.
More options are available at the eatery’s cake counter. The line-up changes frequently, but June’s Cake of the Month is the Choco Nut with chocolate bavarois, coconut cream and hazelnut financier under a rich cacao glaze.
For a simple tea time treat, drop by between 3pm and 6pm daily and get the cake with a cup of coffee for only RM18. The bakery also has happy hours from 6pm to 10pm daily with 50% off selected items.
