Sunday Buffet Lunch @ Lemon Grass Cafe, Shangri-La Hotel

For lunch today, we indulged in a nice buffet lunch at Lemon Grass Cafe, Shangri La Hotel. Took advantage of a 50% discount from a credit card promotion.

Some photos taken during lunch -

Mussels and Oysters


Chocolate and Strawberry Fountain


Like father, like daughter - both concentrating hard on their food.... :)

From my plate - waffles, ice-cream and cookie, sprinkled with lots of toasted almonds and choc chips

Food selection was above average, but as with most buffets there wasn't any particular item that was spectacularly great either (for this reason, I normally prefer ala-carte). And the thing about buffet is there's this compelling "kiasu" feeling to just eat and eat to get back the money's worth! Ha hahh..

In the end, I think we did justice to the RM100 total bill considering it wasn't just for lunch. In a way, it was part breakfast (we had a very light breakfast in anticipation of gorging) and also part dinner (had a very light dinner cos we were still stuffed by dinner time)! But of course there's the guilt factor for eating so much, so I think I'll stay away from buffets for a while. :)

Oh, it wasn't all about food. There were some fun activities for kids too - balloons, a bouncy castle and sand art.

She's going through a phase where she's scared of clowns and mascots. But she was ok with this cos she said he's an "uncle", not a clown

Proudly showing off her flower balloon hat :)

Eating and playing must be a tiring affair, cos Elyssa dozed off like this after the heavy lunch!

Daddy said...

Hahaha...that's the problem with buffets. Zipangu's buffet at Shangrila on weekends is great too....

Leona said...

which credit card giving such a good promotion???? Can tell ah?
I am yearning to eat a good buffet for a long time...

Adrine said...

Chi2 - I know!!! Just can't help overeating at buffets!!

MeRy - yup, nice indeed.

Alice - yeah, I love the desserts. Realised I only took photos of the desserts but not the main meals!

Luciana - yeah - the first 30 minutes or so in a buffet is fantastic but it goes a bit downhill from there.

Angeline - the food selection was certainly good.

Paik Ling - thx for asking! So far so good. baby has been good to mummy :)

Rodney - just checked that the 50% promotion is valid for Zipangu too! *sigh*, after complaining about buffets, I'm now tempted to try out Zipangu!!! (after seeing the good review & photos online)

Leona - promotion is with Amex Platinum. Very good deal!
