I just can’t seem to run away from coming back to the CBD even on weekends! 😛
Dinner tonight is one super filling affair for we have decided to head to M Hotel for The Buffet that PB has been wanting to try.
The dual soup pot and the soup base , Chicken and Tomato, that we have chosen from the 4 options available. The other 2 were Laksa and Porridge!
A very huge bottle of thirst quencher that we were served. This is free flow and you can choose from orange, coke and sprite if I did not remember wrongly.
The highlight of the steamboat would be these live drunken prawns! Every table gets only one portion of this live prawns. More prawns are available at the buffet counter.
Checking out the spread available, I am greeted by baskets of greens.
The selection of shells.
A wide variety I would say as they have 2 types of mussels, white clams, scallops, cockles and conch which I do not see at other steamboat places.
There are also flower crabs, baby pomfret and mud crabs.
Cuttlefish. dory fish, snake head fish, silverfish, prawns and squid for picking
The noodles section
The mushrooms, carrots, corns, tomatoes and processed food section
There is one section dedicated to Yong Tau Foo too!
The meat section.
There are sliced beef, marinated beef, chicken paste, chicken mid-joints, lamb and chicken breast for selection. You would notice that there are no pork served in this restaurant.
Moving on to some of the fruits available
The chocolate fondue section
Cant help moving to the dessert section!
Durian Pengat – This is a must eat for durain lovers!
Condiments available to make your own sauce for the steamboat
Food I took for Round 1 😛 – YTF and some sliced beef and chicken paste
Enoki Mushrooms, fish maw, corn, mushrooms and some processed food.
Flower crab, korean glass noodles and more prawns from the buffet counter.
The prawns were just as good as the live ones!
Carrot cake, tiramisu and chocolate truffle cake.
I cannot help but got myself some desserts to start my meal too! 😛
Have not eaten the ang mo carrot cake for a long long time! Yums!
This is also very desirable for me but miserable for PB as he does not like durian. 😛
Another Special for the buffet on Friday and Saturday – Chilli Crabs with Mantou.
After tasting it, we feel that you can pretty much skip it. So if you are going to visit on other days, you did not miss anything
My self-concocted sauce for my steamboat – lots of spring onions and parsley, a bit of red cut chilli and sesame seeds in 1:1 vinegar and soy sauce and drizzled with a bit of sesame oil.
Round 2 of my buffet steamboat dinner – More meats and fish maw
More prawns (cos PB finished everything that I took in the first round!) and scallops and shells.
Some vegetables and carbs. The spinach noodles was pretty nice when cooked in the tomato soup. If I was not that full, I would have eaten more! The guy at the next table love it so much that he went for more after he had his desserts! 😛
I was thrilled to fish this out from the pot. I had thought that it was winter melon that I took , not knowing that it is actually shark’s fish melon or si gua. The texture is very interesting and it looks like shreds of fins when cooked and hence its name. It has soaked up all the goodness of the soup. Regretted not taking more 😛
Time for desserts on PB’s request. And I just realised I did not get to eat anything on this plate!
My fruits, durian pengat and green tea cake. First time eating starfruit with chocolate and I must say the combination is quite nice.
This is one piping hot dessert that you have to try – Bobo Cha Cha. Love the sweet potatoes that melt in your mouth and the consistency of the coconut soup. Slurps! There is Cheng Teng too but we are just toooooooo FULL.
More desserts on Pb’s request.
Ice cream and more fruits
Tea and coffee to end the meal!
Limited time offer – Happy Hour 1 for 1

The buffet that we had.
Despite it being a weekend in a Central Business District, The Buffet was almost 100% full during the peak meal time. This says a lot about the food despite the slightly higher price. There are many credit card promotions on-going and we ended up paying around $65 each after the 15% discount.
The Executive Semi-Lunch Buffet at Cafe 2000 that looks pretty good.
If you have not found a location for Father’s Day Celebration, you can consider going to The Buffet but remember to make your reservations soon!
