- Rasa sayang, hey! Rasa sayang sayang hey,
- Hey lihat nona jauh, rasa sayang sayang hey.
Nope, not the controversy song that lead to some Indonesians people whom threatened to go to war with Malaysia if Malaysia did not drop their claim on the origins of the song la. The Rasa Sayang here is a hotel in Batu Ferringhi, Penang. I had heard that the buffet dinner here is quite awesome, as good as the one in Sarkies corner, and hence, here I am!
When I saw the mountain high fruits, the first thing that strike my mind is “Yay! Free flow fresh fruit juice is back!” Unfortunately it’s not, you have to pay for it.
Although the salad corner do offer more choices than others, but Sarkies Corner offer double of what was offer here.
The appetizer corner is not bad though.
Indian corner in buffet are rare, and the Tandori Chicken here certainly looks delicious. Too bad it taste sucks. The chicken is to salty, and the fish is tasteless. Yucks….PHAILED!
Sweet and sour fish, not bad though.
The prawns here are a bit overcooked, but taste ok la.
A cute chef in the noodle station.
Fruits and desert corner. Notice the chocolate fondue? The white one? Yea, they do have white chocolate fondue, which is quite rare here. However, the choices to go with the fondue is really limited. And where are my strawberries????!!
Choices of cake are very little too.
The ais kacang corner is are full with choices though, with many types of ingredients you can mix yourself. There are 6 types of syrup for you to choose to sweetened your ais kacang, which include sarsi syrup!
A small cheese corner for cheese lovers.
Oh, forget to mentioned, their Sashimi is good! They are very fresh and are slice thick enough for you to fully taste it! Awesome!
Although some of the dishes here at Spice Market Cafe are good, most of them are just sub-par. It’s not like you are bombarded with variety (such as Jogoya) where one can think, yea, I sacrifice quality for quantity. However, at here, both quality and quantity is just….below average, especially after you consider the price you pay for it.
Besides, when we are here, the air conditional are spoil! All of us are so freaking hot and we were told that they are still fixing it after few complaints. It was only until we wanted to left and only the air conditional is back in working, and hence, my dining experience in Spice Market Cafe is a HUGE disappointment.
