"Chiak" All-You-Can, Live Station Buffet @ Iconic Hotel, Bukit Mertajam, Penang.

In such sensitive times like now... with the pandemic situation going on certain, social distancing seems like a nuisance but it is definitely necessary. Restaurants and hotels are making extra effort to ensure diners are dining in a safe environment. Iconic Hotel is one of the many hotels that are going the extra mile to ensure all guidelines are complied- tables are well distanced (the space can now host up to 60 diners at any one time), dining utensils are individually wrapped and sealed. The hotel's buffet section was closed earlier but after months of preparation, they have recently rolled out "Chiak" All-You-Can, Live Station Buffet. Available on every Friday and Saturday (from 7 pm to 10 pm) at their in-house restaurant, the buffet features a wide range of local dishes and international delights (Japanese delicacies, Chinese stir-fries, Seafood-On-Ice etc). This buffet promotion is expected to run from now until October 2020. For Ken Hunts Food's followers, you may receive 15% discount by quoting "CAYCIKH" (promotion is valid for the month of August 2020 only and limited to the first 30 pax).

Many Thanks to Iconic Hotel for hosting us.

The Chef's Specialty dish is on a constant change so the surprise factor is there. Apart from the live action stalls which serve Fried goods, Roasted meat and Sashimi; there is an ala-carte menu that allows diners to have unlimited servings. Notable dishes on the menu are Curry Salmon Fish Head, Braised Beef Brisket with White Radish, Herbal Salt Baked Chicken, Sambal Seafood Petai, Wok Fried Prawns with Cereals etc.

With the King of Fruit is in season, the buffet sees a range of Durian desserts... from Durian Tarts to Durian Cakes or even Durian sweet soup (served with Coconut Milk). These are of course, in addition to the usual dessert range. Ice Cream lovers would be glad to know that Iconic Hotel offers "Merry Me" Ice Cream- a proud Penang brand that is known to offer many unusual but delicious Ice Cream flavors.
