Friday Night Poolside Barbeque – Royale Chulan Penang

Often we think of Barbeque Night, but I often say it should be Barbeque RIGHT at the Royale Chulan Penang!

I’m a fan of outdoor cooking from my scouting days when we learned to light a fire for camping.

We have a make-shift stove and use a beat-up pan to fry up an egg. That is the extent of my cooking abilities.

When it comes to man-size fires of stroking a great big BBQ, I will leave it to the men.

There’s so many ways to cooking meat that my head spins to think of the recipes for grilling, smoking, using a Dutch oven, and pit cooking.

When I go to a Barbeque, I get excited thinking of what I could eat that’s right off the flaming coals, piping hot and delicious with that smoky flavor.

Seasonal Colourful Roasted Veggies

Vibrant, seasonal veggies on skewers are favorites. Roasted root/ bulb vegetables like pumpkin, beetroot, carrots, corn, and potatoes are excellent low GI carbs to go for.

I love roasted pumpkins!

Dipping Sauces for BBQ

If you love grilled seafood, steamed or fried fish, then the dipping sauce to shoot for is a Thai style dipping sauce made of fresh chilis, coriander (leaves and stalks), garlic, oyster sauce, fish sauce, fresh lime juice and salt, sugar to taste!

Powerful and sultry, this a sure-fire way to liven up your next seafood meal. Remember, the dipping sauce is meant to be fiery so load up on the chili padi!

Another excellent dipping sauce is a yogurt mint sauce that goes beautifully with grilled or roast lamb. If you’re used a jar of mint jelly all your life, it’s time to throw that store-bought, safely boring sauce and make your own.

Mix Greek yogurt, finely chopped mint leaves, minced garlic, ground cumin, cayenne pepper, kosher salt, and freshly ground black pepper with fresh lemon juice.

None of the jar or bottled sauces for the BBQ. All these are made from scratch by the chefs.

You will dance around the bonfire like me. It’s so DELISH. I kid you not.

Another dessert that we would dive for is a baked banana and apple with brown sugar and raisins in tin foil.

Meat + Fire = BBQ

The poolside Barbeque has an impressive whole roast lamb. The heady, rich flavor of a roasted lamb is irresistible.

Lots of chicken and beef satay with peanut dipping sauce.

Many awesome smoky flavored types of meat, chicken, beef, lamb, sausages, and a delicious burger on the grill.

Eat Your Greens

There’s a Penang favorite, Jiu Hu Eng Chai (Cuttlefish Salad with Water Convolvulus), that’s not on other hotel’s buffet lineup.

There’s plenty of starters and greens; pretty standard fare.

The Coleslaw is delicious!

Wait until you try the best creamy coleslaw EVUH!!! I have to confess I had two portions of this perfectly chilled classic coleslaw that hold up and don’t become limp and soupy! Not too vinegary or sweet. This is just perfect if you end up in coleslaw heaven.

Make Your Meal Colourful

It is so easy to overeat at a BBQ buffet. The trick is to choose your carbs wisely, load your plate with veggies and meat with just enough sauce.

Can Not Say No to Desserts

I had several rounds of desserts. It is so hard to resist when all your favorites are there.

How creamy do you like your Pengat Pisang? For me, it’s FULL SANTAN!

The pengat pisang full of lemak from the santan has my top vote.

As for me, I always have some bread pudding!

The rest is a night of laughter and camaraderie with blogger friends, guru Steven Goh, Barry, and Johnny.

And best of all, an affogato cuppa made extra special by my sifu, Blogger Criz Lai.

An affogato and a cup of milk coffee is a perfect way to end an evening of feasting.

That incredible classic affogato is just vanilla ice cream and strong coffee.  This is a  beautiful end to a poolside BBQ with friends.
