Starting in November, the Sino Group of Hotel's restaurant - Satay Inn, will present a true flavour of Penang at three respective hotels - the Royal Pacific Hotel & Towers, the City Garden Hotel and  the Hong Kong Gold Coast Hotel.


In collaboration with the Malaysian External Trade Development Corporation (MATRADE), under the Malaysia Kitchen Programme (MKP) and the Penang Chefs Association, guests of Satay Inn are able to savour some outstanding hawker foods such as Kerabu Bok Nee, a salad of shredded chicken and black fungus with a refreshing touch of spicy chilli, the Choon Pheah, traditional Malaysian spring rolls that have been modified to bite-sized servings and are served along a flavourful vinegary dip made with loads of onion.

On top of that, the group has rigorously selected and invited Penang's chefs to perform at live cooking stations, bringing some of Penang's favourite dishes to foodie. Given that Penang style is basically a fusion of Chinese and Malaysian, along with Nyonya cuisine, we all loved the bursting umami flavours and mixture of unique herbs and spices.

Favourites included the stir-fried flat noodles with scrambled eggs and cockles, the tangy laksa cooked with mint, pineapple, chilli, onion, cucumber and a fragrant fish broth of lemongrass, which was highlighted with an elevating touch of shrimp paste.

Last but not least, the delicious pork belly braised in cinnamon-scented soy sauce was decadently finished with a hard boiled egg and tofu puffs serving as condiments.

The menu offers two popular desserts that happen to be a traditional banana cake and a pandan crepe filled with caramelised coconut. Everyone is satisfied with the green crepe, especially because of the sweet note it offers from the presence of the coconut sugar.
