Jazz Feast

Special thanks to Jazz Hotel Penang for extending this food review invitation.

Jazz Feast is the all-day dining restaurant of Jazz Hotel Penang. Like the rest of the hotel, Jazz Feast is decorated with music-related ornaments. For example, the restaurant has electric guitars and laser discs on the wall.
Jazz Feast serves Kochabi Delights Buffet Dinner on Fridays. The buffet menu covers many classic Hainanese and Nyonya (Peranakan) dishes. To assure customers that the recipes are authentic, Jazz Hotel has invited veteran Chef Bob out of retirement to share his culinary expertise every Friday evening.
Hainanese Chicken Chop is one of the most popular dishes in Hainanese cookbooks. Chicken is fried to golden perfection, and then served with baked potatoes and Worcestershire-based sauce.
Hailam Chun Piah are filled with jicama (sengkuang) and other savory ingredients. The spring rolls are deep-fried so that they become crispy. Jiu Hu Char, made of dried cuttlefish and jicama, is served too.
Other delectable snacks are Lok Bak and Egg Rolls. The latter contains century eggs, which is a delicacy in Chinese cuisine. Sweet chili sauce is provided.
Pie Tee is prepared in edible cups made of pastry. The snack is typically topped with jicama, carrots and eggs. Spring onions and fried shallots can be added for better taste.
Foo Yong Hai is a signature Chinese-Indonesian dish. The omelette is prepared from beaten eggs, mushrooms and vegetables. I cannot recommend this dish highly enough.
As for seafood, Assam Pedas Fish is seasoned with spices like tamarind and chili peppers. The fish is softer than I expected; I prefer a firmer texture.
Char Har Lok is a dish of stir-fried prawns with sweet-tangy sauce. Colorful bell peppers serve as garnish.
Moving on, Slow Braised Lamb goes particularly well with rice. The dish also contains juicy okra (lady's fingers), whose texture complements the savory lamb.
The salad bar has acar rampai, cucumber tzatziki, roasted pumpkin salad and mango kerabu salad. Diners can also mix their own salads using fresh vegetables and dressings.
Moving to soupy desserts, Leng Chee Kang is typically served with ginkgo nuts, snow fungus, basil seeds, sago and sweet potatoes.
Be sure to check out the chiller because there are more desserts like French pastries, crème brûlée, sago gula melaka, jellies and assorted mochi.
As for drinks, Jazz Feast has a "ko cha bi" (nostalgic) kopitiam stall that prepares classic drinks like kopi tarik. In addition, fruit punch and Skol beer are provided as part of the buffet.
The buffet price is RM88.00 net per person. For every 3 paying adults, the 4th person dines for free! Children (10-15 years old) and senior citizens (55-75 years old) are charged RM68.00 only. In addition, children below 10 and senior citizens above 75 enjoy additional 50% discount!
