It was a rainy day ,took the lift to the 37 flr as the lift moved it seem slow with beautiful rain filled view.But were there in no time. Was here giving my sis a birthday treat and we went for the weekend a la carte buffet brunch.
We order all the Chef's signature dishes first. All one serving only....
Braised Shark's Fin Soup with Crab Meat. Had lot fins and crab meat as you can see.
It tasted like normal but I never had a buffet with so much Shark's fins and crab in the soup .This a alone could cover near half the buffet price.Shoik! la
The next forth coming dishes all can be
ordered as many times as you wish but doesn't come in as you order
Poached Beijing Dumplings stuffed with Chicken & Prawn in Chilli Vinegar Sauce was very good.
Steamed Chicken Feet with Black Bean Sauce the feet were trimmed for easy eating.
Steamed Cod Fish with Preserved Vegetables. The Cod tasted very fresh light soft just slides inside your mouth.Did not taste like it was forzen at all. And preserved vegetables did a fine compliment.Was one of the best dish.Ordered twice.
Deep-fried Red Garoupa Fillet with Sesame & Citrus Sauce. The fish was not crispy but sauce was quite okay not bad.
Sauteed Garoupa Fillet with Ginger & Scallions.The fish was a bit hard and not tender but can be eaten.
“Country-style” Steamed Sea Perch Fillet with Spicy Sauce.I don't think it was very fresh but the was sauce okay.
Poached Live Prawns.Was crunchy, sweet and fresh.
Wok-fried Crispy Prawns with Spicy Corn Sauce . The prawns were big, was very crunchy and fresh and sauce was very good. Would have ordered again if time did not run out.A Winner
Deep-fried Whitebait with Salt & Pepper.This bait was quite big and was very crispy and good.A another for munching.
Stewed Bean Curd & Sea Cucumber with Spicy Szechuan Sauce.The bean curd was soft ,cucumber was very well done and the sauce was just right,was quite happy with this.
Porridge with Shredded Chicken & Dried Scallops.At first it tasted very plain normal after awhile it was good must be dried scallops.
Homemade Fish Noodles Braised with Sea Cucumber & Prawns.Missed taking photo... time was running out.It was actually quite good.
They had a small buffet station with some cakes,soy pudding, kueys, fruits,duck tongues, duck wings,fried dumpling and barbecued pork ribs.
Had some dumpling and ribs.The dumpling was cold can't taste anything much but ribs were surprising good had a slight crisp just a touch of sweetness.
They forgot some of our orders.We were not served anything for over an hour from 1.05p.m to 2.15. 2p.m was suppose be last order.There were about 9 more dishes to come about 2.15p.m all the dishes came instantaneously at one go,There was no last order asked by the staff .
It was full house the I think the wait staff were trying their best to serve being friendly and were apologetic.
Over all the food was good will I go back ............
