It’s hard not to break out into a grin when you are greeted with the sight of a whole lamb roasting in any buffet.
Sweetening the deal was a whole platter of oysters, freshly shucked and briny. Though I didn’t manage to snap a picture, the salad/seafood station was lined to the brim with fresh mussels, prawns & flower crabs.
All of these were a part of the East meets West theme for the Christmas & New Year buffets for Holiday Villa Subang this 2010.
Appetisers of fresh gourmet breads and soups were laid out with 3 assortments of fresh butter; paprika, unsalted & salted, all prepared in the Holiday Villa kitchen itself. Enjoy your bread with a bowl of fresh pumpkin soup, if you so wish.
We chose our meals from “the cooking stations” that circled the pool side.
The grilling station was one of our favourites & predictably so. Who doesn’t love their meats? I know I do!!
Not confined to only the lamb; there were seafood, sausages, chicken & thick beef fillets.
I particular liked the seafood packets, where the mix of fresh mussels, squids, fish and prawns where cooked with slightly spicy chilli spices.
Then it was the Japanese station for me. Seeing the sombre looking Japanese chef preparing the sushi, I felt assured of the quality of the Jap fare here immediately.
Freshly rolled california rolls, makis, lightly battered & crisp vegetable, prawn and squid tempura. How I wish there were sashimi as well. 😉
Going a bit Asian, there were Yong Tau Foo and a Chinese stir-fry stall as well.
Canto-noodle in a claypot. Not bad; fully flavoured stock and loads of ingredients.
The Indian grill was next.
The indian breads – naan & chappatis were freshly “baked” in the tandoor oven. All meats were rubbed with a special tandoor mix & was grilled till tender with full flavour of the spices imbued into the flesh.
Below: The Thai station, where your Thai salads and Tom Yam will be prepared al-minute.
I got exhausted after a while (getting tired from the sheer amount of choices alone is a good thing in any buffet! 😉 ) and attacked the desserts.
As expected, I got sugar overloaded that night. Hehee..
My favourite – Ice Kacang!!
Some lucky bloggers got chosen for a complimentary 2D/1N stay in Holiday Villa Subang. But I didn’t .. Huurmmpphhhh ;p
