I haven't gone to Tiffin have dinner dessert buffet for a few years. My friend was suggested to have dessert buffet, we think of Tiffin. When we arrived we found the restaurant also have dinner buffet at the same time. The hostess was introduced only few tables of food that we can select.
Table one: Fresh fruits (orange, kiwi, prunes, mango and pineapple)
I never seem a half cut of orange and kiwi was served on hotel buffet table before (of course it is skinless). I can't eat too much on mango and pineapple because my body got wet heat (濕熱). Where is my strawberries? Can I got melons on main course section as I saw Parma ham was served with melon? I feel confused this time, but I don't have it.
Table two: Chinese dessert soup (楊枝甘露, 綠豆沙及豆腐花), Bread and butter pudding
Those dessert is nothing special. I would rather like to try those dessert in somewhere else.
Table three: Ice-cream and Sobert
Ice-cream was limited choice (vanilla, chocolate and coffee), only one raspberry sobert was try and the scoop was not clean. Limited topping was served on this table (only flake almond, no other kinds of nuts and have different sauces). I was suprised and found that this table have some liqueurs (Kahlua, Peppermint, Contreau....). I can put some liqueurs on top of my ice-cream. But the cleaniness of this table should be paid more attention.
Table four: Cakes and Pastries
Some type of mousse was served in tiny liqueur glasses and limited cakes slices was served. I feel disappointed because some famous dessert like tiramisu and American cheesecake was disappeared.
Table five: Chocolate section
Few chocolates and chocolate made cakes was served in this table, The brownies was fine, but others I think nothing special.
Except the above tables, Cheese Platter, Souffle and Waffles was served on the main buffet table.
I tried two times and finally got my first souffle. It was very hot and taste good. The waffles was a bit overcooked, it was very brown and too dry, tasteless. The Cheese Platter have five types of French cheese, but I forgot those name.... They have sem-soft and some hard cheese as well. We can have those cheese with Melba toast, lavish, dried apricot and red grapes. The cheese was good and tasty.
The price was not include tea or coffee, extra $65 or $70 will charge if you like. Of course we skip this item.
The overall food selection is limited. The taste was just fair and did not meet my expectation in this five stars hotel. I even think the Pastry Chefs was change. Sorry, I will not go to Tiffin to have dinner dessert buffet next time.
