Here comes Part 2 of our review on DoubleTree Resort By Hilton Penang. As promised, we will now share our experience having breakfast & dinner at Makan Kitchen.
We were very delighted to find the view of our breakfast during our second day staying at the resort. Located just beside the swimming pool, the resort really makes your breakfast a good start! Watch below video, recorded live on Facebook on our breakfast environment that morning.
Every family traveller loves child-friendly restaurants – and that’s exactly our first impression of Makan Kitchen at DoubleTree Resort By Hilton Penang! Their high chair was very comfy. Our toddler seemed to love seating in there for quite a stretch of time, with a great view of the outdoors!
Their children dining set was also super cute. Our toddler can’t help but talking about the animal images!
They have friendly & considerate staff, too. As you can see in the picture, Shafa was babywearing our toddler. It’s part of our strategy for Shafa to babywear our toddler while Yusof take the food for everyone, so that our toddler won’t be running around and go straight to the swimming pool.
Surprisingly while Shafa was babywearing our toddler, the staff approached her and asked whether she would like to have any drink. And below picture was the beverage she took for Shafa. That gesture was just too sweet, thank you!
Makan Kitchen at DoubleTree Resort by Hilton Penang really has one of the most amazing choices of breakfast buffet. Here’s what we thought!
They have wide ranges of breads, cakes, fruits and muffins (surprisingly, our son’s favourite was their fruit cake).
We love the fact that they have quite a range of pastries available, especially Yusof’s favourite chocolate crossaints!
There’s a wide choice of Malaysian food as well. Shafa’s mom & Yusof chose the Nasi Lemak with Sambal Ikan Bilis, Rendang Ayam & Omelette.
Of course, the first thing Shafa will have at any breakfast buffet is their cereals, it has been her favourite breakfast since she was a kid. Oh boy, you should’ve seen the excitement on her face when she saw the ranges of cereals available – even the rare ones such as the Fruit Loop and All Bran!
Egg lover? You can request Omelette, Over Easy, Sunny Side Up, Poach Egg, Half Boil & Hard Boil at their Egg Counter.
Noodles & Roti Canai are available too! Now that’s a complete Malaysian food.
And now we move on to our dinner experience here. Watch the above video, recorded live on Facebook, for a brief explanation about Sharing Is Caring promotion at Makan Kitchen in DoubleTree Resort by Hilton Penang. They were big portions, truly meant to be shared!
Sharing Is Caring promotion offers a sharing portion of the Malaysian Favourites menu. And for that, we chose:
1. Laksa Penang
2. Indian Butter Chicken
3. Hainanese Chicken Rice
4. Rendang Tulang Rusuk
Truly 1 Malaysia food! And they all tasted lovely! As you can see, each of us had our own dish, including our toddler (his was the chicken rice). And guess what? Our toddler ate most of his portion (and that’s BIG portion)! Now that should give you an idea on the level of tastiness.
What’s your thoughts on the food for breakfast and dinner here? Would love to hear from you!
Stay tuned to the Part 3 of the resort review – which we will cover the Kids Club, famous attraction and swimming pools!
