Recently, the wife and I (plus a group of bloggers) were invited to the Flavours of Thai buffet at PARKROYAL on Beach Road by the Marketing Communications Manager.
Since then, KopiKosongGirl has been nudging me to go back with her again for a meal, the next time paying from our own pockets because it’s quite decently priced. We would not say it’s the best Thai buffet around, but there are enough things that is nice plus some non-Thai items that has been staple in their buffet menu (like their very fresh sashimi, sio bak, drunken prawns, braised sea cucumber and soft shell crabs) that makes the wife wants to go back.
Here are some items that we had, we eat a little more usual that we usually do, but not stuffed ourselves silly.
As it was kind of a ‘media’ tasting, some of the food’s served to our tables rather than from the buffet line. We checked, they were all looking the same at the buffet line except without these nicer serving plates and bowls.
Move over Thai Fish Cakes. Hello Thai Prawns Cakes!
You know how prawns always add a little natural sweetness to food. These prawns cakes had naturally sweet taste, nice crispy crunch and not oily at all. You can skip the sauce and eat it on its own.
Somehow the combi makes it quite a comfort food. The beef balls were those solid biting kind that gives you the satisfying ‘bite’. The beef pieces on the other hand was tender yet stays in shape on your chopsticks, but when you bite it, just breaks apart in your mouth.
Tender pieces of roast duck in a rich flavourful red curry. Already sounds quite sinful, but you can’t help drinking one or two spoonfuls of that ‘mesmerizing potion’. Detox can come another day.
Their Executive Chef Jackson Goh knows people like their freshest catch of the day promotion, so from Mondays to Thursdays, Chef Goh will prepare Promfret, Sea Bass, Kee Fish and Tilapia fishes in one of the various styles: Spicy Thai Lime and Chilli, Thai Green Curry, Thai Red Curry or Basil in Coconut Cream.
Sounds good doesn’t it?
These are just part of the menu, there are lots more stuff to try!
Some of the desserts we were served:
Another reason we like we having a meal here because of the variety, other than the Thai desserts like the above and Banana Fritters, Thai Red Ruby with Coconut Cream, Assorted Royal Thai Kuehs, I can have my choc cake!
This promotion runs from 5 September to 31 October 2012.
