I was invited to try out the upcoming Lexis Suites Penang Christmas Buffet and I would say I am totally in love with it.
The buffet spread was amazing. For the start, there is a good spread of hors d’oeuvers such as Smoked Chicken Breast in Teriyaki Sauce and Salmon Gravlax alongside with a salad bar and a couple types of salad like the Walnut Apple Salad and Australian Potato Salad.
For Soup, diners will get a piping hot Lobster Bisque with Almond Flakes accompanied by freshly baked breads and rolls.
Of course every Christmas Buffet must have that Carving Station and Lexis Suites for sure did not disappoint in that department. Fresh slow roasted turkey and roast beef will surely tantalize any meat lovers out there. Then come the wonderful spread of mains (I am a main course fella), good mixture of some Asian and Western and most impressive I would say the huge selection of Japanese sushis and sashimis as well as the seafood on ice which include fresh tiger prawns, mussels, scallops and the lovely Alaskan Crab Legs. Wow, these fresh seafood almost made me forget how wonderful the carving meat was.
The there are the two live stations for seafood risotto and the premium fish noodle. I am not too big a fan of risotto but I would say the premium fish noodle is so amazing that I had two bowls of it. Other items on the main that I enjoyed very much includes the Grilled Lamb Chop with Authentic rosemary Juice, Fragrant Prawns with Sunrise Powder Egg Floss, Teriyaki Beef with Sauteed Mushrooms, Artichoke and Pearl Onions and Grilled Japanese Squid.
No Christmas dinners will be complete without the desserts and the chef hit the sweet note perfectly with some amazing house favorites such as the Green Tea Tart, Chocolate Creamy Pauloua, Lemonade Gipsy as well as the must have Yule Log.
