Recent event that we had organized was pretty successful; at least I know our fellow colleagues enjoyed themselves very much down here, in Lone Pine Resort, a boutique hotel along Batu Feringghi. Before Lone Pine was acquired by E&O group, it was one of the 1st hotels in Batu Feringghi; it was one of the oldest hotels down here too. After the acquisition, the entire hotel was under a massive renovation and it was a total change then after. However, their signature restaurant – The Bungalow still remain unchanged. In fact, added a store upstairs and named The Gerai, that’s selling local items like sarongs, rattan basket, hats, and some local delights, etc.
Always like to visit this place, 1 is because is very much well shaded, 2 is because their food has their unique way of presenting to their customers and their in house guests, 3 this is one of the shooting venue for the E&O Celebrity Chefs competition, if you remember, there was a scene where all the participants have to cook with the children, and they were cooking one of the simple dish and that’s pancake.
The event that we had has consists of 1 lunch and 2 tea breaks. And we have 2 sessions down there with 2 different sets of menu. Of course the 1st session that we had was something unique and it’s The Bungalow’s signature – The Tiffin Lunch. The Tiffin Lunch is their ever popular Oriental styled lunch that served in the traditional Tiffin carrier… in fact, The Sarkies from the E&O Hotel was having the same concept as well. However, some of my colleagues find it a bit awkward as during their lunch down there… wonder why were they serving their food in the Tiffin carrier.
Anyway, lunch was served with Hainanese Spring Roll first as an appetizer and the Papadum as snacks. Sharing the mess ... that picture could tell how enjoy we were!
And, followed by the Vegetable Tom Yam Soup. This is definitely a kick for me! Cuz, it’s spiciness and sourness is definitely up to my preference. Of course, it can never be able to compare to the authentic Thai’s Tom Yam if you really want to compare it.
Here now the Tiffin Carrier… which consists of …
Stir Fried Chicken with Ginger & Spring Onion
Foo Young Egg (芙蓉蛋)
Stir Fried Mixed Vegetables
Last, but not least… the dessert, Sago Gula Melaka. Many of my fellow colleagues were telling me the Gula Melaka was very fragrant, and wasn’t that sweet.
The 2nd group food menu has a total change; the food is more Cantonese style and mellow down too.
Appetizer was served with Kerabu Mango & Turnip with Gui Fei Abalone Sliced.
Followed by the soup, Egg, Seaweed and Vegetable Soup.
Onion Chicken with BBQ Sauce
Kong Poh Squid
Loh Hun Vegetable with Tang Hoon
Fish with Thai Sauce
And, all served with Steamed Rice
And for the dessert, it was given Honey Dew Sago with Vanilla Ice Cream. It was creamy and cooling for the current weather.
Oh dear, how can I forget that, they can even arrange vegetarian food if you have a Vegetarian participant/guest. And this is what we have, it was a special thought that Lone Pine hotel arranged it for us.
Sweet & Sour Chicken Set.
Anyway, the whole event that we have and the place that we chose is a perfect venue for creating memories that never to be forgotten.
