Savour the True Flavours of Penang
Satay Inn invites guests to discover Penang’s melting pot of culture and flavour at its True Flavours of Penang promotion this fall
Hong Kong, 8 October 2015 - Satay Inn from Sino Group of Hotels at The Royal Pacific Hotel & Towers, City Garden Hotel and Hong Kong Gold Coast Hotel bring guests the best of Penang’s cuisine as part of its True Flavours of Penang promotion, from November 4th to 15th. Arranged in collaboration with Malaysia External Trade Development Corporation (MATRADE) under Malaysia Kitchen Programme (MKP) and the Penang Chefs Association, this partnership presents Penang’s most favourite dishes.
Food choices will take guests right to the roots of authentic Penang cuisine, as selected by William Tan, a Penang native, food industry insider and spokesperson with the Penang Chefs Association. Many are recipes that have been passed down through his family. “Authentic Penang food is always from our home kitchen,” the passionate foodie says. “And our mothers are our best teachers!”
The Penang Way
Penang’s fabulous fusion of flavours is drawn from Malaysian, Indian and Chinese heritage along with traditional-style Nyonya cuisine created by Chinese-Malay settlers. The mouth-watering selections on Satay Inn’s menus are a celebration of longstanding culinary tradition.
Satay Inn is offering a special menu this fall from 12.00nn – 2.00pm and 6.30pm – 8.30pm daily. Recommendations come from chefs who will rustle up dishes from live cooking stations, showcasing Penang’s signature hawker dishes. The event starts off with all-time favourite Penang Fried Kway Teow (HK$108) on 4th - 6th November, followed by must-have Assam Laksa (HK$125) on 7th - 9th November, White Curry Mee (HK$118) on 10th - 12th November and, last but not least, Oyster Omelette (HK$108) on 13th- 15th November.
Street Food Goodies
A wide range of the specialty hawker foods that put Penang on the international culinary map are to be included. A bowl of tangy Assam Laksa (HK$125) is one of the most well known. The spicy dish features ingredients that flown in from Penang, chilli, mint and onions served with laksa noodles in a fragrant fish broth layered with lemongrass. Penang Fried Kway Teow (HK$108), a dish of fried flat noodles with cockles and Chinese sausage, and the spice-laden original Penang White Curry Mee (HK$118) served with yellow noodles, coconut, eggs, chicken and shrimp, are two other hawker stall highlights made to be savoured.
Get Set for Discovery
On the promotional a la carte menu, Kiam Chye Ark (HK$88), a duck soup with salted mustard greens and Choon Pheah (HK$78), Malaysian-style spring rolls with a traditional Nyonya dipping, make for a salivating start. All-time favourites, Tau Yew Bak (HK$108), braised pork belly in a cinnamon-flavoured dark soy sauce, or Penang Claypot Seafood Treasure (HK$198), a Penang-style seafood curry with king prawns, fish fillet and squid continues to take guests on a culinary stroll through Penang’s exotic food landscape.
Menus end on a deliciously sweet note. Kuih Ketayap (HK$62), a green crepe filled with caramelized coconut or Bengkang Pisang ala Kampong (HK$68), a traditional baked banana cake, are two of the divine desserts on offer.
Guests are invited to enjoy menus bursting with flavour and authenticity in this unique gastronomic event.
