I'm a little plump rabbit who lives in Penang. I hop around with a camera round my neck snapping photos of Penang and foodstuffs. If you meet a rabbit like that in Penang, that should be me ; )

Food Tidings from Hotel Equatorial, Penang

I recieved a little Christmas card-like promotion brochure from Hotel Equatorial, Penang today. Though just a brochure, I felt really happy looking at all the gorgeous food photos and reading about the promotions. I always have a soft spot for Hotel Equatorial, a place popularly known as EQ. I guess this fondess should be due to Kampachi, the Japanese restaurant at Equatorial which I believe (and many agrees) serves the best Japanese buffet in Penang...

Flipping through the brochure, I remembered all the luxurious meals I've sampled at EQ. To me, EQ just does everything in style. I'm full of praises over this place. I may be bias, but don't take my word for it. Do try it out this Christmas or New Year to see if you agree with Rabbit ;p...

I wanted to share the nice photos and promotions with all of you because it made me so happy. So, I scanned and edited the brochure to put it up at this blog. Sorry the fonts are a bit small though...

I love Equatorial in KL! We used to frequent the chinese restaurant there until their chief chef retired. Only been to the Penang one for coffee, sadly no time to eat the Japanese food there.

Can anticipate a huge crowd during those periods, I mean for the celebration meals (and surely more expensive as well). So, I will prefer to go at some other time, not during the festive seasons :)
