We love, love, love it.
Our booking was initially at 7PM but we had to move it to 8PM due to time constraint and distance... even arrived 30 minutes late... so we're really bad... we're thinking we're probably going to be turned away for being late... in my head I thought... oh well... darn but what can one do?
A little embarrassed, we informed the reception that we have a booking and we'd prefer to sit outside since the weather was amazing. We only waited a little over three minutes and we were showed to our table.
On our way to our table, we're amazed by the spread of food. It was exciting, I was salivating way before we started digging into our plates.
It's always been a habit to literally survey the stations before diving in. When the attack plot was finalized... I went straight to the salad bar... there's so much to choose from but I zoom into, open mussels, cocktail shrimp, calamari salad, smoked salmon and capers, crabmeat sampler and edamame. They're all to-die for. I am definitely going to re-hash the calamari salad just because it's too good to ever forget!
Hubby's first prey were unsuspicious shrimp tempura... OMG, the batter was scrumptuously light and shrimps felt and tasted super fresh. Hubby fell in love so much that he went back to the station and took every single tempura on the serving plate.... no kidding. It's alright, serving plates are replenished all the time... it's like the robbery didn't happen at all. We helped him finish his loot though. Sorry, we are unashamed. We love food that much!
His next stop was the BBQ station. He chose his next preys from the fresh station, choosing mussels and prawns for BBQ was a really good choice. There were chicken and beef but seriously? It's like going to an Italian restaurant and ordering hamburger... it's just not right to be unfaithful to seafood night.
We started at 8 and finished at 11 PM. Never happened in the history when we actually stayed until closing. We didn't mean to. We did joke about it thinking that's absurd and we had so much fun munching and stuffing our face that we didn't realize the time.
How will we ever notice the time when there's a free flowing house alcoholic beverages? It's really amazing.
The dessert station is so mesmerizing that I feel a little upset with myself for not reserving a bigger space. What a shame!
Definitely will be coming back! With or without promotion... Yum-my!
