Flavours of Thai @ PARKROYAL on Beach Road

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.

Unlike most people, both of us like veggies and we love the Thai Papaya Salad.
Just be careful of the spicy and potent chillis!

This Thai Glass Noodle salad was quite appetizing too. I like the refreshing taste of the herbs and the slight sourish-sweet dressing on it that makes you want to have more of it.

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.

The Thai Fish Maw Soup was a little salty for my tastebuds, but it was filled with delicious ingredients!

Yes, while enjoying the Thai buffet, we like to pause and indulge in some non-Thai stuff like drunken prawns!

The Thai Beef Noodle soup was quite good. Though a bit salty, it also has the slight sweetish taste to it. Probably more salty than sweet that night, it was a flavourful broth. 

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.

For those who like Roast Duck and Red Curry, the Thai Red Duck Curry would probably what you would like. KopiKosongGirl was especially happy with this curry.

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.

For those who like Stir Fried Minced Pork Thai Style.
Somehow, I did not eat a lot of it, because it goes with rice, but I was not going to eat a lot of rice during a buffet. (hehe…)

Do you remember Plaza Brasserie had the ‘catch of the day’ buffet before?
My mother in law remembers this place by the order as much fish buffet place, we brought her here once for some celebration.
