Sakura International Buffet has just revamped itself,and the new deal got just a whole lot better.
With the recent revamp, food is now divided into various international sections in where one can get a piece of food from France, Italy, japan, as well as local delights.
Having tried the bulk of the items, I recommend starting with some of the sashimi at hand. Recommended is also the salmon belly sushi, a premium cut that will melt in the mouth.
From the local section, go for the Boston Lobster and Argentine Red Prawn Hokkien Mee. The Argentine prawns are larger and sweeter than the local prawns and having "live" lobsters from Boston is a treat at any buffet.
Another must try at the local section is the Hiroshima Oyster Omelette. With a strong seawater flavour, paired with runny eggs and not so much starch, this dish is a winner.
I found the chicken rice quite interesting as they use Japanese short grain rice.
For something more hearty, the beef stew will do the trick. Chunks of beef in a thick gravy that goes well with some rice.
From the grilled Japanese section, I would recommend going for the grilled prawns with mayonaisse as well as the Freshly Baked Egg Tart with Bird's Nest. The egg tart is quite light.
For those who want to DIY, there are oysters, beef, chicken and fish available to cook in a collagen filled soup.
Save some stomach for dessert, and the one must try dessert is the chocolate lava cake with vanilla Haagan Daaz ice cream. Oozing warm chocolate with vanilla ice cream can never be a wrong combination.
Overall, a wide variety of food with something for everyone.
