Mandarin Oriental Hotel’s Clipper Lounge doubly serves customers with Afternoon Tea Sets as well as Buffet later during dinner time. We were Invited by the Hotel to try out their latest theme of Italian and Seafood Buffet one night, offered at $458 on Weekdays and $478 on Weekends. It’s very reasonable and how is the food, you might ask? Very impressive personally because it was all cooked so well. This Italian themed Buffet will run from now until 31st of March.
Roasted Rib-Eye -
Slow cooked to pink, it was quite tender but it was the meatiness which wowed us. Served with Yorkshire Pudding on the side with a lovely gravy, this was one of the best buffet Roast Beefs I have eaten in HK ~ 8/10
Zampone Pigs Trotter with Lentil Beans -
A trusted combo in Italy, this is house-made here at Clipper Lounge. I expected some mint in the lentil beans somehow, but the gelatinous trotter was cooked so correctly. Very unique to find this Italian staple dish in a buffet setting. ~ 8/10
Pasta Station -
Not many choices of sauce and condiments, but I guess you can pick more seafood and add some in yourself. There are actually more Italian rice and pasta options served at the Hot Buffet section.
Some Lemon Sorbet to finish the night..
This Italian and Seafood Buffet as mentioned will last until 31st of March.
There are a lot more food on offer but here are some of the best items I liked. It really is a bargain with great beef, Zampone, many seafood and desserts. Might even go back soon.
