"Melt in your mouth salmon", clams, butternut, squash, chorizo, fava beans and spinach 吃完意粉已經有點飽，以為三文魚應該也是細細份，無問題啦。想不到是這麼厚切的三文魚扒，有點意外。 慢煮三文魚非常嫩，把慢煮的真諦完全發揮。真的melt in your mouth, 而且一邊融一邊散發三文魚的油香。雖然只有寥寥可數的蜆，但很鮮甜。大量的chorizo，有點兒硬。三文魚下是鮮嫩的baby spinach，配上南瓜汁，很夾。
ok i mixed up the title part 1 and part 2. this is supposed to be part 2, but i put part 2 on part 1 so now the title reads part 1 for part 2 and part 2 for part 1. ok ya watever.
after 2 dozen oysters and god knows how maybe pigs i killed for iberco, here's the main course.
dad's lobster pasta, very small portion, perfect after like 10 rounds at the buffet. pasta is al dente, the sauce has a little kick to it, i like it, not just plain tomato sauce.
salmon with shrimp, chorizo, and something else. i gave it all away to dad, and i left the salmon to savour on my own.
like the pasta, small portion, that's fine. i couldve got up and left after 2 dozen oysters.
its cooked MEDIUM. the chef's got brains. if i remember, i usually request my salmon medium. especially in hong kong even if the server gives you weird looks. but this time, i didn't even need to order by request! medium is how its done. and this is what you call perfection!
as mentioned in the previous post, my neighours all had the red meat. to my left a party of 2 both ordered the sirloin. to my right my 2 neighbours ordered the HG burder. After i lose 30 lbs, i will come back and order the burger. the burger is served in half - meaning top bun at the bottom with onions and tomatoes upside down (top bun at the bottom), and other half, is bottom bun at the bottom, with the 1"+ patty, bacon, and some sort of green dressing (it looked like wasabi dressing but im most likely wrong - or it could've been cheese). i think the idea is to take the top half and slap it on the bottom half and complete the burger. but due to its size, that is not possible. the tomatoes were thick cut - like half inch thick - and there were 2 slices... with the folded bacon, cheese/sauce and patty on the other half, you could never take one bite out of this burger that you can barely keep intact by hand. so it was a knife and fork dish. the plate was gigantic, and a large size of fries... thick. cut. fries. if that plate was in front of me, i probably thought i was in giant land or i will die of heart attack or worry i will die of heart attack when i get up and walke out the door post-meal.
i couldn't describe you much about the sirloin because my mind was too focused and in awe about the burger, so my mental capacity was overwhelmed and full occupied to take more than two glances at the sirloin. from vague memory, sirloin was juicy, tender, and looked charcoal grilled (descriptions based on visual stimulation). not a bad choice either. but i would order the burger. the HG burger. because its Humongously Gigantic.
the more special dessert - nitrogen (vanilla) ice cream and cake. the ice cream looks like popcorn. it really does! nothing too special. i guess for lab made fans its cool. but vanilla is kinda boring.
the cake - strawberry.. something.... and cherry sauce. i had zero bites of this so i cant comment. not a fan of strawberrys/cherries flavoured food. or the fruit.
the boring dessert that i digged in and actually forgot to take a pic. milo gelato in english, milo soft ice cream in chinese. i honestly cant tell the difference between chocolate and milo. but i honestly truely with it came with a waffle cone. then it wouldve been another PERFECTION. with cookie crumbs on top of course.
coffee was ok, strong. had to ask for more milk. they actually keep their milk warm so it doesn't ruin the coffee. VERY CARING. some coffee shops don't even do this. its like people who just pull butter out of the fridge to pair it with your appetizer bread. thanks for being thoughtful.
maybe it would be cheaper to come here when its not a holiday, but this meal set the mood right for a dreaful rainy (amber warning rain) cloudy damp lazy mothers day sunday.
cloudy with a chance of oytsers.
btw i went back for more watermelon and iberico after dessert. i couldve gotten more oysters but after 2 dozens i was worried i might grow worms they they will start crawling around my organs.
PS. i had to ask my dad to get me my watermelon. because when i got up the first time after dessert, i came back with iberico, oysters, and beetroot. no room on the plate for watermelon. i whined to daddy, can you please get me watermelon? i can't go out there and come back with it.

emailed back and forth with their execs prior to reservation. had to leave my credit card details for a half party deposit (for a party of 2 they will charge me $588 deposit).
the ambience was cozy like a lounge when i first stepped in.. oh lazy sunday how much i adore you!
sort of on a diet, so avoided red meat. saw neighbours with 2 steaks, looks JUICY!!!! omg but i really wanted to stick to my no-redmeat diet. salmon it is again! omegga 3 im coming!
and with an appetizer buffet, it is proabably suicide to order a steak.. or i shouldve somehow enlarged my stomach beforehand in order to fit everything in for this meal.
OYTSERS!! fresh sea water salty oysters, and they are somewhat fat too compared to other buffets. this already is worth all the money they charged for for this meal. or maybe im over-exaggerating because its been probably over a year since i had fresh oysters or probably like 3 or 4 years since i had all you can eat oysters. my old oyster spot was marriot's buffet at admiralty, ahh memories! but for some reason i grew out of the buffet trend so haven't had a chance for buffet oysters, so now i see this as a treat to make myself happy, giggly and satisfied for the rest of the day.
maybe i should eat oysters more often because im like going crazy over it.
i mustve had like over 2 dozen oysters this meal.
ok i got some other stuff from their buffet too. salmon, grapefruit. some other stuff that i didn't take a pic was corn, watermelon (another happy food), beetroot salad.
they had iberico ham along with parma ham.
more oysters, squid (lightly deep fried with chipotle dip), and jamon iberico aged 48 months..
the summary of top 3 things i had: oytsters, iberico, watermelon.
im typing this less than 24 hours after the meal. and i could take on another round of oysters iberico and watermelon like right now.
i passed by sogo afterwards in cwb and was on the 6th floor toy department, and it was CROWDED. so then i was thinking, is it mothers day or kids day?
I had a gorgeous scrumptious meal on mother's day (thanks dad) too bad my mom is on the other side of the world, otherwise it wouldve been a perfect kids day. little kids go get toys to celebrate, as a big kid i need oytsers iberico and watermelon to celebrate.
(part 2 tbc)
