This year, mid autumn festival happens on 22nd September 2010, a Wednesday. Yet, celebration mood can be felt much earlier and if you’re up to celebrate with your loved ones, let your destination be set at one venue long known for its palatable dishes and delightful choices of food.

Starting from this Sunday, 19th September till 22nd September 2010, Meisan Restaurant, Grand Margherita Hotel will let diners slip back into the wonderful memories of past mid autumn festivals with their array of traditional as well as modern dishes.

Chef Ricky, executive chef for the hotel shares with us some of the items not to be missed when the buffet starts this Sunday.

At the start of the buffet line, appetizers in the likes of Selection of Cold Hors D’oeuvre, Chinese Cold Lobster & Chicken Roll, Cold Lobster with Fragrant Salsa as well as Cold Flower Crab on Ice tops the mouth-watering list. Not a fan of cold entrees? Opt for the Spicy Thai Chicken Feet or Deep Fried Crispy Potato before setting your sights and appetite on the soup counter.

Next stop, the soup counter offers you the tantalizing choice of Shredded Duck Soup with Ginger & Chive the creamy Seafood Veloute with Tomato. The unorthodox later pick would be a delightful surprise to the predictable choices of Chinese cuisine.

At the showmanship station the chefs are on standby, chopping board and all with a wide array of BBQ specialties from their Chef John Lee. Sesame Chicken, Char Siew Chicken, Roasted Crispy Duck and Braised Beef Brisket are among his wonderful creations.

If your food thoughts are at the piping hot notch, the chef at the Yong Tau Foo station would be there to serve you your choice of the Steamed Bean Curd, Stuffed Bean Curd, Deep Fried Fish Ball, Fish Cake Slice, Tang Hoon, Kueh Teow or any combination of the ingredients available. The Chick Koo Teh counter is yet another wonderful choice of hot, cook-as-you-order food if you’re in the mood for some homely dishes. Let the chefs mix the ingredients of chicken, lettuce, deep fried bean curd stick and different types of mushroom into a bowl of Chick Koo The, the Meisan way.

Coming back to the buffet line and arriving at the Hot Station, pleasant surprises await in the form of authentic Chinese recipes combined with creative western dishes. The Fish Slice with King Soya for example sets the ideal choice of tradition-revisited while the Stir Fried La La lets you have the rare opportunity of sampling this local delicacy, fresh and cooked to perfection.

If your westernized palate kicks in, their choice of Pan Seared Lamb Chop and Boiled Pasts with Grilled Chicken Slice & Cheese would be more than satisfying. You would also be tempted to try the Curry Beef with Potato and the Rock Salt Prawn with Spring Onion & Chili at the Hot Station before moving on to the next station.

Nothing says tradition more than porridge yet at Meisan Restaurant; this traditional dish is anything but plain. Available in a choice of red rice, potato, white or peanut porridge, you are your own chef as you choose between the different condiments to add. Fond memories mix well with the available condiments of salted peanut, yu char kueh, century eggs, salted eggs as well as salted vegetables with black beans.

Do not be intimidated if a small queue forms at our Sushi Bar as it is a sign of appreciation for the fresh sushi and sashimi you can handpick or have the chef prepare for you. This break out of tradition seems fitting as Japanese food offers a healthy option for those who are watching their weight or calories count.

Any mid autumn festival is incomplete if there’s no mooncakes so Chef Ricky has that area covered as well. Sample the chef’s pick of mooncakes in different flavours, paired best with the company of your loved ones. But the desserts train does not stop there. Allow yourself to be tantalized by the aroma and unique flavours of their Durian Pancake and the Mango & Pomelo with Coconut Cream dessert. Then sink your teeth into Sweetened Sweet Potato & Yam or the Deep Fried Sesame Ball. Fresh seasonal fruits add a beautiful closure to the scrumptious celebration dinner.

While we may not be able to pinpoint the rightful beginning of the mid autumn festival, what matters today and hopefully in future is the joy of having celebrated the festival with people that matters most to us. Let this mid autumn festival be the time where you can once again share a joyous moment with your loved ones.

Seats are being grabbed fast so pick up the phone and call the hotel’s F&B department at 082-423 111 ext 1109/1158. The buffet is priced at RM79++.
