I'm really lucky to be one of the ten OpenRicer who got the invitation for the first OpenRice Tasty Untion (ORTU) of 2012. The best part is we got to feast all we can for free and the fact that Plaza Brasserie is an award-winning buffet restaurant makes me look forward to this event even more. This is my first time eating here and when I got there, I was amazed by the posh ambiance and set up of the restaurant. We were brought into a more private dinning area, away from the hustle and bustle of the main buffet area and with soft music playing in the background.
Braised Sea Cucumber with Roast Pork & Mushroom
With such a wide spread of dishes, I really don't know where to start from. Luckily, beforehand, we have followed Karen the MarCom Manager for a short tour. So I started with her favourite and recommended dishes. As they are currently having this Heritage Buffet Feast till 30 April, some of the dishes really are those traditional favourites. Dishes like Braised Sea Cucumber with Roast Pork & Mushroom, Braised Pork Balls with Mui Chye, Soft Shell Crab with Tobiko Mayo. These three dishes are the main highlights! The taste brings back memories of my grandpa's home-cooked meal in the past.
Another not to be missed dish is their Chicken Shawarma. The smile of this lady chef makes her counter very approachable. This dish is rather a great combinations of the crunchy, fresh veggie and soft, tender meat wrapped up together. Tasty indeed.
The salad corner is not to be missed too. With so many different kind of bread and dressings to choose from. My favourite here is the potato salad but be cautious to try small bites only as just the salad can make one quite full too.
Hanainese Chicken Rice
Hainanese Chicken Rice is our local delights. The fragrance of the rice with the chicken rice chili, ginger and black sauce is so familiar and so nice.
Don't forget to try their drunken prawn, Japanese Sushi, and the spread of sweet treats available too. The drunken prawn soup is not too overwhelmed with the herbal taste and the Japanese sushi and sashimi are all very fresh. As for the desserts, I guess I needn't elaborate more. Look at the photos, tempting enough?
To end the events, each of us got a slice of their new addition of the dessert lists which is the carrot cake. This carrot cake is extremely moist and full or texture and the cream cheese frosting is yummy. I will definitely plan some of the celebrations at Plaza Brasserie in the near future. Once again, thank you OpenRice and Thank you Plaza Brasserie for this wonderful afternoon of High Tea Buffet!
