There is a new Thai food promotion at Shatin’s Hyatt Regency Hotel, at Café Hyatt restaurant. Chef Mum (Siriluck Lekkwan) from Macau Hyatt Hotel will be here to promote her Thai themed buffet until 6th of April 2014. At $468 per person on weekdays, I really loved their Roast items here as well as the Unlimited Slipper Lobsters. A special mention to also the best waffles I have had in town so far.
Café Hyatt -
Over at Shatin Hyatt Regency Hotel.
Also found here is Shatin 18, one of the rare and authentic Peking Duck restaurants in Hong Kong as it is made according to Beijing traditions, and a sister restaurant to Made in China 長安一號 (Beijing) and also Beijing Kitchen 滿堂彩 (Macau).
BBQ Roast Pork was amazing -
Better than many dedicated roast shops. The Char siu was also decent. This hotel and Shatin 18 upstairs is famous for their meat roasting in HK for a good reason. I ate tons of these.. ~ 8/10
Sushi Counter -
Actually the Sushi counters in buffets to me personally, are what sets you from the competition apart. I can’t recall having seen a really impressive or at least above average Sushi counter for a while. Any smart restaurant will know that this can be the Drawing Card to pull in the crowd. At least here they have Sayori (Half Beak) fish. But it could be made more thoughtfully as a package… ~ 6/10
Pasta Station -
3 different types already pre-made and looking a little too generic. I expected something better when it comes to buffet pastas, especially when many places offer them made on the spot and customizable. ~ 6/10
Coconut and Banana Dessert Soup -
With a hint of saltiness. This was one of everyone’s favorite items for the night. In fact I have been eating this recipe for many decades and it used to be prevalent in many Hotel dessert recipes. Sometimes it is cooked with orange instead of bananas, believe it or not. One of my more precious childhood memories but not easily found again nowadays... ~ 9/10
Freshly baked Waffle with Peanut sauce, Thai Tea ice cream, Chocolate Nuts,
Grapefruit & Orange, Almond flakes -
The waffle base was really fragrant and crispy on the outside and moist inside. A rarity in Hong Kong context and absolutely delightful. Would say this even beats some versions I ate in Belgium itself! (The Brussels not Liege style ones of course!) ~ 10/10
Bread & Butter Pudding looked neat too -
Well caramelized and with chunky pieces of bread. This trusty recipe can be taken for granted, but somehow the version at this buffet stood out. Good Value for Money buffet restaurant and items were looking so neat overall. Some room for improvements here and there but I will be back for the seafood, roast items and desserts.
