Was invited to Hotel Grand Continental for Hi-Tea last weekend. They are introducing East Meets West Weekend Hi-Tea Buffet starting now until the end of the year. You’ll get 4 different themes in a month. Please bear in mind that it’s only on Sunday.
Week 1: Thai Cuisine & Hearty American
Week 2: Asian Spices & Continental Favourites
Week 3: The Oriental & Italian Affair
Week 4: Kuching Street & Penang Hawker Fare
Doesn’t it sound yummy? I tasted some of the dishes and it was beyond my expectations, overall it was pretty good. I said this not because I was invited for it but it did really surprise me. What’s more, the price is very reasonable. I’m gonna share some of the food that I had tried which can be found in the buffet.
Left: The Mini Pizzas are just too cute! Obviously it’s a type of Italian food, so it’s available in Week 3.
Right: I figure this is likely to be one of the combinations you can find in the Hot & Cold Combinations in Week 3. I can’t remember the name hehehe… A dish that consists of crab stick. You’ll normally get it in Chinese banquet as one of the appetizers.
Left: Pan fried Dory fish with lemon butter, yum! I like this! This is available in Week 2. Light and flavourful.
Right: Deep fried bun (I think this is what it’s called). The filling is red bean paste. It’s oily on the outside but otherwise in the inside. The paste is not too sweet too. It’s more like an oriental thing to me but can’t find it in the menu they gave us. Never mind… You can always try your luck. I’m sure you won’t go to the buffet just for one food, it doesn’t make sense hahaha…
Left: Ok… Kick me! I’m not sure what’s this ;p it’s either Crispy Spring Rolls (Week 3) or Fried Springrolls (Week 4). Whatever it is, it’s not my favourite as I don’t like my spring roll this way.
Right: Opppsss… This is… Another guess… Fried noodle? Hahaha… Can’t find it in the menu given. Nevertheless, it was not bad.
Left: This is obviously fried rice. They have two types, this should be Chinese Fried Rice (Week 3) while the other one is Vegetarian Fried Rice which can be found in Week 1. The fried rice tasted quite nice, I thought it was pineapple fried rice at first, I guess they used similar spices for it.
Right: Very colourful and I’m a fan of capsicums! Love this dish! It’s called Italian Rainbow Salad with Homemade Vinaigrette. A very light dish.
Ok… Guess what? Was too full eating all the above and some others which were not in post as they’re not meant to be in the menu. Hence, I didn’t really eat much of the desserts.
I tried the New York Cheese Cake (Week 1) and it did pass my standard, not too bad even though I had tried better ones. That’s the only dessert I had! Can you believe that?!?! Goodness! Was too full! How I wish I can eat more. Maybe few years back, can no longer do that now. No more stamina *LOL*
