You know, the first thing i’d check out whenever i’m at buffet, which isn’t that frequent since i’m not a fan, is their dessert spread. No i’m not joking. A lot of times, i just wanna dive into the desserts and heck care the rest. Hurhurhur. Well, the truth is, i’m no that far from the truth because very often, my second plate is usually the dessert. As for my first plate.. he he he he… comes my ultimate favorite, fresh oyster. ;)
Aren’t these cream puffs gorgeous?
I’m not a puff anything person. Be it durian or cream.. choux pastry is just not my thing but boy oh boy.. these ones here, i cannot resist. So tall, so pweeetttyyy! Needless to say, i took one. :P
Taraba Gani is one of the featured seafood at Triple 3 for this promotion. Another must try is the Lobster Mentaiko, according to the friends.
Personally, i think the Slow Roasted Japanese Wagyu Beef is really awesome. If not for the stuffed to the brim stomach, i would have asked for a whole slice instead of just 3 tiny pieces. Heeee! OH!! Another food item that sits high on my to-eat-list if you were to go is Hokkaido Steamed Potato. Yes, you read it right. Hokkaido Steamed Potato. It’s OMG lorr.. friggin’ unforgettable this potato i tell you. Together with 2 cubes of Hokkaido butter on top, you won’t regret filling your precious stomach space with this. That, i promise you. It’s really that good. I know right.. how can something so simple and basic be that good?!? But my dear readers, this is.
One of the highlights of the day – filleting a 45kg tuna fish. It’s so heavy that it needed 3 men to carry it.
As claimed, “The freshest sashimi you can ever find in Singapore” and i have no doubt about it even though i didn’t eat it for some personal reasons.
Do you know what are you looking at? *giggles*
It’s fish sperm! Deep fried no less. I did a double take when i first saw it on the spread but out of curiosity, i just had to try it, just like how i had to try the fresh moving octopus in Korea last year. Heh. The silly sister who was me at that time refused to take a bite, even after i cut it real puny, she simply wasn’t game enough. No fun she. Won’t bring her next time! Hmph!
Anyway, so how does the sperm taste like? Ermm.. to be honest, it tastes like flour. HAHA! It’s coated with a layer of funky tasting spices, my guess is these spices are to mask the floury taste of the sperm, otherwise, it’s really not palatable.
If you have just a tiny space for one dessert, go for Sea of Okhotsk Salt Ice Cream. Ignore the rest.. just head straight to the ice cream counter and ask for at least, 2 scoops of this flavour. It’s worth the calories and stomach space. ;)
This Hokkaido buffet promotion is only available for dinner ($138++) from 17 to 31 October 2012 so if you can make it, i say, go there tonight!
