Buy 5 Free 1 – Lexis Suites Penang Ramadan Buffet Dinner
Kak Rossa and I took a slow drive to Teluk Kumbar to breakfast together at Lexis Suites Penang Ramadan Buffet Dinner.
We were surprised how near Teluk Kumbar is from USM.
Just a short drive past a few traffic lights and the factory area, we were in Teluk Kumbar town.
Along the way, Kak Rossa mentioned several areas where we could access secluded public beaches – the one like Penang’s 70s.
Where is Lexis Suites Penang?
Lexis Suites Penang is a luxury resort hotel in Bayan Lepas, about a 10 mins drive from Penang Airport.
Each suite comes with a private pool and a breathtaking beach view.
The location is within the Southwest Penang Island District, at the southern coast of Penang Island, between Bayan Lepas to the east and Gertak Sanggul.
Fasting During Ramadan and Iftar Meal
I missed sharing an Iftar meal with my Muslim friends.
eVery year during Ramadan, I will recall the memorable time I had visited Kelantan.
In the early morning, I joined my friends for Sahur.
I tried to fast but give up because I wasn’t able to go without water the entire day.
When working in KL, my Aussie boss will encourage all the non-Muslim staff to join in solidarity by fasting one day (at least a half-day fast).
The reward to encourage us was a Ramadan Buffet Dinner at a hotel to break fast together.
I remember the times well and cherished the years I worked there.
Sajian Selera Tanah Air – Ramadan Buffet Dinner
Breaking fast with Kak Rossa and the many family groups in the restaurant brought back fond memories.
The “Sajian Selera Tanah Air” (Homeland Dishes) has a delicious ring to it.
Best of all, there were over a hundred items that I couldn’t possibly try at all.
My only regret was not eating with my hand because the dishes are finger-licking good.
The location at Bayu Lexis Alfresco Beach Front is pretty romantic – dining in the tents with a view of each chef operating a food station and beyond the beach with the billowing sea breeze.
There was a thunderstorm the night before that blew away the tent, and the Ramadan Buffet Dinner was moved to the Roselle Coffee House, the all-day dining outlet on the mezzanine floor.
As Ramadan approaches, Lexis Suites Penang offers guests a lavish iftar feast specially catered by the resort’s culinary experts, lead by Executive Chef Johnno Fong.

Sajian Selera Tanah Air – Ramadan Buffet Dinner Menu
Featuring daily rotating menus, guests can savor great options from Asian delicacies, Intercontinental specialties, local favorites to appetizing popular traditional Malay cuisine and Arabic dishes.
You will get authentic Malay dishes with international twists, offering a pleasant “kampung style” experience prepared by the resort’s seasoned local chefs.
Break your fast with a variety of dates and sweet, cold drinks.
I like the plump, sweet date and “Jagung” (Corn) drink and Lemonade best.
Follow that with an assortment of local greens and tasty shoots of “Ulam” complemented with different types of spicy sambal.
Notable ones are the Cincalok, Green Sambal, and Air Assam, which I fancied.
Kak Rossa couldn’t resist the Rojak Buah with sauce.
Other traditional Malaysian favorites are
- Acar Buah
- Goreng Tempe
- Gado Gado
- Penang Pasembur
- Mee Rebus Johor
- Kerabu Omelette
Not to be missed are the many varieties of Keropok in the biscuit tins.
I had a great time trying all, BUT my favorite is the decidedly pungent Keropok Ikan Terengganu.
Every year my “hajat” (wishful prayer) is to savor a bowl of Bubur Lambuk, a flavored porridge made with a combination of aromatics, spices, coconut milk, and dried shrimp.
The delicious rice porridge is served during Ramadan
A bowl of Bubur Lambuk is a tasty way to breakfast.
I found a better way of eating my porridge – with the addition of “Serunding Ayam” (Spicy Chicken Floss) and “Serunding Daging” (Spicy Beef Floss)
Another must-have on the menu is the slow simmer flavorful-packed Sup Gearbox that is simmered over 16 hours.
This broth made from cattle bone infused with various blends of herbs and spices
