The month of Ramadan is upon us once again, and everyone's definitely looking forward to the festivities, culinary delights and celebrations. If you're in the mood for a lavish buffet spread to break fast during the holy month, do consider the Selera Kampung Ramadan Buffet at Sarkies Restaurant. Upon stepping into Sarkies in the Victory Annexe of E&O Hotel, you'll be greeted by a larger-than-life spread of buffet, nicely spaced out and placed in a rusticly calming setting.

By tradition, eat-all-you-can buffets have been a staple in Malaysian culture as it encompasses delicacies from different races and ethnic origins. Thus, Sarkies embodies that culture very well with a serving of international buffet that resembles a mini-mall filled with a United Nations worth of international cuisines, and it is considered one of largest and premium buffets Penang has to offer.

The tradition of Ramadhan Buka Puasa stretches back as long as I can remember! Different restaurants and establishments offer different packages - buffets, ala-carte, you name it ... but the very core of the dinner never changes over time. It's a meal of many sauces, curries, grilled and roasted meats, multitude of rice and breads; but most importantly, its a celebration of Umrah and a great time with friends and family.

Sarkies Restaurant truly caters for the masses with the action stations famed roasted meats, especially the roasted duck. All of these are readily available in the Selera Kampung buffet spread. With a wonderful consistency and not-overly-done flavours, the Malay dishes was an excellent addition to the buffet, and a must-try is the roasted whole lamb, or more affectionately known as kambing panggang.

  1. If the services that are being offered by that company are not good enough then it would be best to hold the wedding reception in some other area so that another caterer can be used. Catering
