I love to indulge at buffets especially the hotel ones and believe me scores of my associates are also in favor of my demeanor. What an avenue of dishes to salivate. It is an eating establishment. Sure you will put on a couple of pounds and good for you to run a couple of Ks to burn it off. On the other hand, an abundance array of health and nutritious items are also catered for where no other eateries could compare. From various form of salads, veggies, cheese, juices to fruits. A great day’s health intake if you are that kind. Here are my favorite hotel buffets
Café TOO :: Island Shangri-la Hong Kong
Theme :: Singapore Food Delights
Where :: Pacific Place, Supreme Court Road, Central, Hong Kong Phone 852 2877 3838
I enjoyed my food here. Atmosphere was terrific with a good variety of clientele. From families to a romantic lunch for two. On specials was food from the lion city Singapore. It’s a big hit and I believe the hotel will be introducing this specialty on a regular basis. The music was great not that is if you get the chance to listen then its not to fast, not to slow just like café TOO.
The Mistral :: Intercontinental Hotel Kowloon
Theme :: Children under 11 eats for free
Where :: 18 Salisbury Road, Hong Kong Phone 852 2721 1211
The sparkling Sunday brunch buffet here is amazing. Kids under the age of 11 eat for free “ what a bargain” and of course not to mention a heavenly room, which is the children’s, play room for the kids to what else but play, then eat, then play, then eat again. As a parent, it’s a wonderful concept, there should be more. We had time to soak up the atmosphere, had delicious goose liver, oyster & make our own pizzas while qualified personnel looks on. Brunch here is interesting, the entrée is offered in buffet format while main course is a la carte. It’s fantastic; I would for sure bring the kids here again.
The Marriott Café :: JW Marriot
Theme :: Seafood Galore
Where :: 88 Queensway, Hong Kong Phone 852 2810 8366
OK the variety of food here is average but for some reason it just seems to pack it in even on a Monday night. There is an aura about the Marriott Café, which makes it unique and you feel extremely comfortable that makes you want to indulge more. I love the good in size Singaporean mud crabs, which was on offer and the extremely tender roasted beef with pepper sauce. It is all about quality not quantity.
Eclipse :: The Langham Hotel TST
Theme :: All about Lobster
Where :: 8 Peking Road, Tsim Sha Tsui, Hong Kong Phone 852 2378 9988
This little gem was a surprised. All and all it fits about 120 guest but what it lacks in size, it sure covers up for a good variety of food that is on offer. From Canadian smoked salmon to Australian oysters and the great American Lobster. Good value for money as there are a promos, if its your b’day month, you eat for free but you must bring someone along.
The clipper Lounge :: The Mandarin Oriental Hotel
Theme :: Sunday Breakfast
Where :: 5 Connaught Road Phone 852 2522 0111
This has to be one of the best breakfast buffets in Hong Kong. Fantastic service blends with an awesome variety of great food, juices and fruits. I especially enjoyed the seafood porridge and the omelets. For some reason, everything seems very fresh.
If you are planning a breaky, lunch or dinner, buffet is one way to stimulate your senses.
