My two cents:

Yes I know I've been introducing a lot of buffets lately and the sequence of today's blog post is a tad more confusing than usual. I thought long and hard before deciding on this current format.

One of the reasons on why I have chosen to share this buffet dinner in this style is due to my desire to spread the wonders of this buffet as well as its interesting concept. This is (so far) the only buffet that I have come across that has decided to challenge its limits by offering a different theme buffet (almost) every single day of the week.

The photos of the dishes that you see above (for each day of the week) are main highlights for each buffet dinner and I've tried them all. They were fantastic and my favourites have got to be Crab! It's Monday... and Wednesday's Lobster Rock and Roll! — my love for crustaceans shall never die!

I attended the food tasting on a Wednesday, and so it means I can share in depth of what the food is like on a Lobster day. Let me take you through it with more photos!

Starting off with some chilled poached lobsters on a bed of ice, how could we miss out on having succulent Boston Lobsters on a Lobster Night? It is a buffet dinner so grab as many as your stomach can fit!

SAM_1470
Perhaps some prawns, mussels or crabs instead?

SAM_1467
We've also got a DIY Rojak Station that I highly approve and recommend. The rojak prawn paste that they have concocted is THE BOMB! You can mix however you like and your rojak would still taste fantastic!!!

On Lobster Day, the Kueh Pie Tee Station gets an interesting twist: De-shelled half prawns are switched out for shredded lobster meats, just to follow the theme and to add a tinge bit more of sweetness to your local Nyonya delicacy.

One of the highlights of the night was this bowl of Lobster Laksa Noodles, that was rich in flavour and with a generous half of a lobster and meat dumplings.

Soup of the Day - Lobster Bisque

SAM_1506
I had so many bowls of their Lobster Bisque with a few chunks of crispy Croutons and bits of lobster meat within. The Lobster Bisque was so good and flavourful that the staff had to keep bringing the pot back to the kitchen to get it refilled!
