Asian Market Cafe @ Fairmont Buffet



As the name suggests, the buffet is strictly Asian. So don’t expect to have Italian pastas, roast beef or bread pudding.
The cold selection is good, with snow crab, mussels, tiger prawns and oysters.


The Japanese selection has salmon sashimi and sushi, which my family complained that the rice was not cooked through.
I like the salad buffet, with baby spinach which is rare in other buffets. Rojak was do-it-yourself and such hawker fares can never compare to real hawkers.
The chicken rice and laksa were the exception. The orh luak(oyster omelet) was horrible, according to my son.
My favorite is the north Indian food, with naan dipped in cucumber raita and mint sauce. If stomach space allows, the basmatic rice is fragrant with mutton curry.
Local favorites like cereal prawns and black pepper crab are a hit with many, with some even piling on fried bee hoon and fried rice which I was told has wok hei(wok heat).
Dessert selection includes nonya kueh and pineapple tarts?? Too soon after Chinese new year to even try one. Ice kachang is too troublesome to make; ice cream too ordinary; I settled for fresh cut fruits like water melon, papaya and oranges. Would not be too much to expect passion fruit or dragon fruit at least right, considering how much the price is.
What I missed is the Teh tarik. (Would have insomnia if I drink so late at night.)



It is just my type of tea, but for breakfast, not dinner. The waiter kindly performed for me. The foam from the tarik (pulling) is by far better than those produced by machine.
We took two hours to finish our buffet, with a few pauses in between before starting the appetizer all over again.

It’s worth it only because we had 50% discount.
