haven't been to a buffet in quite awhile! i enjoyed the one here (: seems pretty popular! i was so excited when i saw this cheese platter!!! i love cheese! although i have no idea what are the kinds of cheeses i ate that day cos they weren't labelled xP i think there was cheddar, i recognise the taste! there was also some really nice garlic cream cheese yumyum! a very subtle garlic flavour that gave the cheese such an interesting flavour. and i loved the biscuits that came with it as well. ritz!!!!! and the plain crackers complemented the cheeses perfectly!
there was a wide variety of vegetables for the salad, plus a whole range of toppings! i love croutons and pine nuts! and there were some sauces for dressing as well (:
i managed to take a beautiful picture of a whole baked salmon, but i never got the chance to try it!!!! it came with a lovely creamy sauce on the side as well. it was snapped up really quickly though, which is why i didn't get to try it sighhhh. but it tasted good according to those who ate it (:
the seafood station does not have such a wide variety as other buffets, but it was fine for me, since i'm not much of a seafood-person i think scallops are quite nice though! with the lime sauce (: and of course sashimi!!!!!!!! i remember the salmon sashimi here is really interesting! it has a much firmer bite as compared to the salmon sashimi i normally eat. i always feel that salmon sashimi is always too slippery? but this one was a bit crunchier (?) which i liked. instead the tuna was less crunchy than normal, but still nice anyway!
now for the main courses! this was what we had (i'm inventing names cos i really can't remember what they were called!)
1. baked tomato salad - quite a regular tasting dish. the cherry tomatoes were baked till they became slightly soft and were tossed with other veggies and dressing
2. mussels! i didn't try this. but it looked pretty good
3. beef stew/stroganoff: the beef was nice and tender and the sauce was tasty, nice dish!
4. bread and yam & pumpkin pudding, something like that. i really liked this dish!! ;D it was creamy and rich (don't take to huge a serving), food for the soul (:
5. duck with apple sauce: i thought the sauce was pretty interesting!
6. pineapple fried rice: this was cold!! if not i think it would have tasted better. it was quite fragrant though! (:
7. stir fried kailan: just a normal veggie dish.
8. chicken in oyster sauce: this was quite a homely dish which i liked (:
9. mushrooms! i liked this healthy simple dish of stir fried mushrooms
and each guest is entitled to a complimentary cheesy lobster! omgosh! i never thought that i would ever like something like this. i hardly even eat lobster. but anyway, it was LOVELY. the lobster was baked till the meat was tender, and infused with the yummy gooey melted cheese, it was heavenly
and now we move on to desserts. it's always such a pity that i'm full to bursting by the time it comes to dessert, so even though i want to try everything, i often can't. and anyway, even if i do, i'm sometimes unable to enjoy it properly. sighs. but it's just so nice looking at it, yes? so many things to chose for the chocolate fondue! there is just something about chocolate fondue that is so awesome. somehow i always feel that the chocolate tastes nicer! so i'll just stick something in and drip the chocolate all over my other desserts so that i'll get to enjoy more chocolate. omg heaven!!!! anyways, i tried the macroons and i conclude that they always look much nicer than they taste. don't they look soooo pretty? (: (: but the taste is just, sugary sweet. nothing really special i think.
there was a crepes station!!!!!!!!!!!!!! and the waiter at the crepes station was really nice too (: cos i was one of the first few to order, i didn't have to stand there and wait, instead he served it to my table. hehe, it's good to be ahead of the crowd ;) there are quite a few flavours to chose from and you can mix! mine was peanut butter and strawberry jam. *drooooools* haha the crepe was paper-thin and nice and crispy! awesome (:
and there were so many cakes/tarts to chose from! none that was particularly outstanding though, so i didn't have much of an impression.
overall, a nice nice buffet! xD
