G Hotel Penang Taste Cafe Review

Having a headache thinking what to cook, which dishes to cook for which relative, where to eat this coming Chinese New Year when you get back to your hometown in Penang? Think no more. Why go through all the hassle, pain of buying and getting ingredients from the ever packed, no parking market?

Just bring your family out for buffet at Taste Cafe G Hotel Penang. Afterall the Chinese New Year dinner is about reunion dinner. You could save the time from all the peanut butter strawberry traffic jam of Penang and the cooking time and instead spend quality time while enjoying a hassle free Lunch and/or dinner over at the cafe.

The health conscious relatives could start off with the cold platter, salads or keep themselves busy over at the salad bar.

With the variety of food, even the pickiest kid in the family would find something he/she would love to have at the cafe. Their best stop is the grill station which serves freshly grilled juicy meats cut on the spot by the chef and topped with a spoon of the sauce of the day. Trust me it's heaven for meat eaters. You know they say CNY should eat big fish, big meat right? =)

From Western to Local cuisines, it's definitely a good fusion to satisfy the young and older relatives.

Then comes the dessert, cakes and assorted pastries. If there's anything you should not miss, it's the variety of cakes and desserts made by their award winning chef. Trust me when I say I willed up my extra dessert tummy with all these good cakes and they are still never enough.

If I could, I would have done this to the cakes already. But seriously, it's a buffet, you can have as many servings your stomach could fill.

 What are the promotions they are having for this Chinese New Year? CNY Reunion Dinner is priced at RM178/pax at Taste Cafe and RM168/pax at Spoon G Hotel Kelawai. Brunch on first and second day of CNY at Taste Cafe is priced at RM150/pax while dinner is priced at RM178 for Taste Cafe and RM168 at Spoon.

You could also add on the optional Yee Sang for 2 at RM35 from 15 Jan to 15 Feb. P.s. Add on RM99/pax for free flow of house beer or wine (Trust me the selection of beer available is vast enough).

You also get 50% discount for kids aged 6 to 12 years old and all price are nett and inclusive of 6% GST.

Too busy during CNY and visiting relatives? You could go on other days too. The daily International buffet is priced at RM95/pax and International Buffet Dinner from Sunday to Thursday is priced at RM120/pax while my personal favourite Lava Stone Seafood BBQ Buffet Dinner on Fridays and Saturdays is priced at RM155/pax. Kids below 6 eats for free, 6 to 12 years old gets 50% discount. Senior citizens of 60 years old and above is RM58/pax for brunch, RM70/pax for Sunday to Thursday's dinner and RM80/pax for Fri and Saturday's dinner. You could add on RM65/pax for free flow of house beer or wine.

That's not all, Did I mention that they are having a promotion for BUY 2 FREE 1 for Buffet Lunch and Dinner? T&C applies.

Call +604-2380000 or email for reservations and more details. You could also drop by their website at

The visit will not be complete without a selfie with their ever changing and festive logo.

Not enough of food pics to convince you yet? Let me share more mouth watering dishes. I don't know about you, but I do get hungry even I am writing back on my experience here.

The prawn is always synonymous with laughter during the CNY. Well, fried juicy fresh prawns works for me even without the meaning =)

Light Starters, Finger foods and Dim Sum

Salad bar with various sauces to choose from

 Cakes, cakes and more cakes.. Really.. One could never get enough of cakes from G Hotel. It's like their signature. Every bite makes you yearn for more.. I somehow secretly wish they do delivery to KL. Right now, I have to wait patiently till I return to Penang again.

VR Lab - Experience the Virtual Reality with Video!

Ever thought of seeing something as real as it could get but it's not true? A reality where you could experience visually a different world or even build something new such as a Christmas tree? Or a place you could explore earth on the other side of the globe, visit the places you have always wanted to be at?

Introducing VR lab. A one stop solution to get away from current reality

They are the first to provide a room scale virtual technology experience in the country.

Priced at an affordable range, they also have branches in SS15, Bandar Sunway, Menjalara Kepong and are opening more branches in places like Kota Damansara, Wangsa Maju and Publika

Just wanna try out before playing whole thing? Try walking the plank..

Green room is something new.. You get yourself into the video and save a copy of it =)

Ok enough of those.. How did they make it possible? They are using the HTC Vive in all the rooms for the best experience.

Trust me when I say the 360 view is marvelous.

And private rooms? That's pure comfort and safety for yourself without being disturbed by others

No one will take selfies while you are playing unless you have friends like us..

Hungry after a couple of hours of VR? Their snack corner price is definitely a convenient and price is at an affordable price. I find most items cheaper then the nearby 7-eleven =)

So how was the experience? Watch this video.

Gather Gather Kitchen Review(Kota Kemuning)

Ever felt that you missed your home's food cooked by your ever loving parents or even grandparents and once you moved out to town to work or study, you never really had the chance to get them as often as you used to do? I found this little place in Kota Kemuning (albeit a little far) that cooks potato fried pork like what my late grandpa used to make them.

From the main street, it's a single shop in the middle of the street.

Soft Yam Stewed to perfection paired with pork ribs is one of the good dish they serve best with steamed white rice.

Chicken marinated and cooked with Three Spice taste a little like kung pou chicken is another must try

My personal favourite the potato fried with pork!

Then we have the deep fried lotus root covered in salted egg yolk. Full of flavour on the outside and juicy on the inside.

This is another favourite of mine. Their own cooked nyonya sauce spread graciously on freshly steamed fresh stingray. Just spicy and tasty enough to be eaten on its own.

Fresh grouper fried and then cooked with curry to create this perfect dish.

The tofu really complements the scallops. This is one of their must try dishes.

I call this dish the "must have another". The soup was so tasty, I just couldn't resist having a second helping of it.

My personal rating?
Taste: 4/5 and it reminds me of home
Price: 3/5 Reasonable
Place: 3.5/5 clean, easy to get parking but a little far from KL
