Pampered bliss at G Cafe

It's finally HOLIDAYS!! well, for a sixth former like me. =)
My oh-so-nice aunts brought me for a sumptuous buffet lunch like they had promised me earlier. It was like a reward or gift from them, as I have got the bnm's scholarship, and ehem, because I've been such a good girl. =) *claps hands*

And so, we went to G Hotel at Gurney Drive, Penang's famous boulevard. 

G cafe. 
It was the place where we dined in. Pretty interior design at the entrance, isn't it? LOL. And oh! Did you see the evian mineral water botel? I really thought that they would serve this 'classy' water to their customers. Well, I thought.

Peek into this posh cafe and trust me, you'll definitely wish to sit down and enjoy the bliss.


Guess what's this bluish thingy. Beautiful ey? =)
Btw..I don't think that they were so good to serve us with evian, do you?


OMG. The dessert spread is just soooo tantalizing. Even if you don't have a sweet tooth, I bet you'll surely fall for it as well! Slurp!


FYI, we went on Sunday and thus it was Hi-Tea buffet that day. If you go on other days, you might have other themes like Indian cuisine, Seafood spread etc.


The main course spread here is more like a fusion of Western and Asian dishes. From fried noodles to lamb chop, you name it, they have it. Well, I'm using hyperbole here. Not so great, in actual fact.


There were a few stalls outdoors.
Mee Goreng Mamak. Hmm, so not mamak.

My recommendation: Beef !
If you do eat beef, trust me, don't miss this.
I meant it. You will actually fly after having just one bite. It tasted like heaven I tell you, so awesome that you would moo out loud.  *MOO!*

Seafood Corner.  
Oh my.. isn't it tempting? Well, at least it worked on me.
However, after tasting, it was just okay, not very very nice lor.

From Left: Aunt Siew Eap and her daughter, Yi Wei, which means, my little cousin. lol.

Aunts. They are all my mother's younger sisters. Haha, I have one more in KL.
*Waves to Aunt Siew Lay*

My appetizer as a warm-up. Salad and Potato Soup!( recommendation II )  It tasted like mashed potato, mashed gao-gaoly with extra gravy. LOL. Super delicious, my dear!

and...Here comes the main course.

Beef, lamb, Thai chicken, egg, harsh brown and seafood thermidor. Yum! I'm such a carnivore.


Recommendation III: Fettuccine Carbonara.
You can choose from an array of different Italian pastas and sauces, and then the chef will cook for you on the spot. Cool!  


Recommendation IV: Dessert!




Aunt Siew Siew with her desserts. Sweet lady + Sweet food= Very Sweet Pic. Her bf will be the 1st to agree with me.*evil laughs*


Aunt Siew Hong with Me. =)


Waffle with Ice Cream topping. One word: YUMMY!

Oh ya, you can always ask for coffee or tea from the waiter as it was included in the buffet. However, you must ask from them or else, they won't serve you. Otherwise, you can always enjoy free flow of fruit juices or plain iced water.

Furthermore, there were also ice kacang.. but I didn't eat as I don't really fancy it. If only if they were serving Chendol instead, I would be clapping my hands. Too bad, nope.


I went to the classy washroom after drinking a lot. LOL. And of course, you know, my main purpose was to cam-whore! 
 Not nice I know. =.=

Ate from 12pm to 2.30pm. Siao. Damn bloated. *Burp* Thus, we walked to Gurney Plaza in order to promote digestion. After some shopping, we continued shopping at Queensbay. Siao again. LOL. Aunts' idea, not me. Bought a new dress from Voir. Weee! =) oh well, on the other hand, my money flew away.  T___T  

But seriously, we all need to pamper ourselves once in a while. Right? Heehee.
In conclusion, on my scale from 1 to 10, I shall give it a 6.5
I wouldn't say that the Hi-Tea buffet was very nice, but it's worth trying. At least, the posh interior and relaxing ambiance had won it all. 

Aunts said our next stop will be Hard Rock Hotel Penang. WooHoo! 
Ish, I shall be bloated again. 

Yea, Definitely.  =)
