All-You-Can-Eat English Weekend Roast
The Sunday Roast is pretty much a beloved traditional British meal that many enjoys till today. It is also the perfect excuse to gather the family or loved ones to get together at least once a week to sit down to a hearty meal and catch up on the latest on-goings.
At Farquhar’s Bar in Eastern & Oriental Penang, foodies can now enjoy an All-You-Can-Eat Weekend Roast – not only just on Sunday but also Friday and Saturday. Available from 12.00noon to 4.00pm at RM68 nett per person, tuck into a traditional British Sunday Roast at the English bar.
Farquhar’s Bar, named after Penang’s Lieutenant-Government Robert Townsend Farquhar, is designed after traditional English bars. Themed in rich dark wood, the restaurant has a glorious bar completed with high stools that resembles old British bars in yesteryear. Rich mahogany walls and flooring fills the décor with much English charm.
Holding limelight at the Farquhar’s Bar Weekend Roast is a trio of roasts kept warm under heating lamps. From prime Roasted Rib Eye to Slow Cooked Lamb Shoulder and Grilled Chicken Breast with Sage & Onion Stuffing, it’s a carnivore’s feast to indulge over the weekend with family or friends.
Ask for glorious slices of your preferred doneness of Prime Roasted Rib Eye and enjoy the tender beefy goodness of the king of roast. The Slow Cooked Lamb Shoulder resulted in melt-in-the-mouth pieces of lamb while the Grilled Chicken Breast offer diners a healthier and lean cut of white meat that has a moist stuffing.
Hot gravy is a must so ladle generous hot Shallot Gravy over the Roasted Rib Eye and add on a smidge of hot English mustard and horseradish to complete the roasts.
Perhaps what complements all Sunday Roast is its array of must-have sides. So pile on golden crisp Goose-Fat Roasted Potatoes with its creamy center, Buttered Mushy Peas, Seasonal Vegetables and the English treat of fluffy golden Yorkshire Pudding.
Soup and salad is always present as well in a British meal. The Weekend Roast offer diners simple crisp Salad Greens with your choice of dressing and a Potato and Leek Soup with a basket of bread.
Filled your tummies with all-you-can-eat roasts but make sure to save a little room for a classic Bread & Butter Pudding with Vanilla Crème Anglaise or Fresh Fruits to complete the Weekend Roast dining experience.
If you are just like me, you would certainly want to order a Farquhar’s Bar monthly signature cocktail to add more merriment to the weekend. For December month, the bartender has created Santa’s Sleigh (RM35) in sync with the festive holiday. Santa’s Sleigh reminded me of eggnog flavors where creamy and dreamy cocktail is delicately spiced up with aromatics.
