Let get over to Seafood on ice, signature of the theme buffet impress us with great variety of fresh Flower Crab, Snow Crab, Mussel, Spanner Crab, Lobster and Prawn. Seriously, you can taste up to 3 different type of crab in single buffet is unbelievable. We went on Friday and it pretty much full house but the supply of seafood never stop even on peak time around 8pm. My favorite always goes to snow crab which has the most meat and easy to peel, snow crab leg has a bit of saltiness which I can easily eat many of it. Lobster are pre-cut into half that make it extremely easy to eat, just put your folks into it and there goes big chunks of flesh coming out and into my mouth. Yummy!

Cheese Station

Highly recommend Penang Oxtail Soup, normally I only get to eat Oxtail Soup during Raya Buffet but I am surprise with the awesomeness of Oxtail Soup here, it pack a punch of herb fragrance together with jelly soft oxtail.

While on the carving station, Lamb Leg is catching my attention, covering with various herbs and grilled to perfection. Dipping with mint sauce provided are just perfect. Chicken and Satay are available as well.

Char Koay Teow is one of the highlighted items, it tastes so good that we finish two plates of it. Sound silly? HaHa! It just too good. Seriously, it is on par with those you get on Gurney Drive, it has the heat “wok hei” that bring out the fragrance of soy sauce with combination of prawn, egg and fish cake.

While on the main dish, Grilled Fish Fillet with Tomato Salsa, Beef with Chili Soy Sauce, Black Pepper Mussels, Ayam Masak Merah, Kampung Style Fish Curry, Shredded Duck with Bean Sprouts, Potato Au Gratin, Grilled Chicken Chop with Taste Café Curry Tomato Sauce, Spanish Seafood and Meat Paella and more. Honestly, we are pleasantly surprise by each dishes flavor and taste, it outstanding. Especially Grilled Chicken Chop with Taste Café Curry Tomato Sauce which curry paste are freshly prepared by chef with fresh ingredients instead of off the shelve type of curry paste, depth of flavor is unexplainable with words. Spanish Seafood Paella is another signature dish with fragrance of saffron and acidity of homemade tomato sauce, every bite of rice are pack with punch of flavor.

Getting over to Grilled Station, Angus Strip Loin, Lamb Chop, Spicy Chicken Sausage, White Prawn and Smoked Duck Breast are all available. Thumb up for Smoked Duck Breast, it is the best Duck Breast I ever ate before, flavorful and soft in texture. Prawn are extremely fresh and surprisingly Beef and Lamb are perfectly cook to medium, it came with a little bit of burn fragrance outside but well retain juiciness inside.

Fresh Fruits

While on dessert station, a dedicated Dessert Chef prepare all this awesomeness. Instead of using artificial flavoring, natural fresh food are used for the most authentic and fresh flavor in cake making. Such as Dragon Fruits Mousse cake where every bite can taste the sourness and sweetness of dragon fruits in it, same goes to Cempedak Cake that has strong fragrance of Cempedak fruits. Other desserts such as Tarts, Cone and various flavor sponge cake are all taste good.
