I have not done high tea buffets in such a long while, I almost forgot how hungry buffet goers can be when attacking one.

Marriott Cafe's High Tea Buffet was jam packed with people on a Saturday no less  - turns out any time in the day is a good time to eat. Case in point, seafood galore that was perpetually this empty.

The deal conscious diners obviously piled their plates with the seemingly pricier items and leave the salad bar mostly untouched. The range is quite extensive for a buffet and I was happy helping myself to the various ingredients - capers, olives, vine leaves too!

And unlike all the other diners, these finger sandwiches kept me going back for more.

All the baked yummies!

Donuts or danishes?

Pizzas with melting cheese in two different flavours. Oh my yum.

Local delights is very much part of the buffet too - think hainanese chicken and rice, fried carrot cake and fried hokkien mee to name a few!

Dimsum too!

The very impressive icecream display in flavours I would have loved to get a scoop each.

The bite sized desserts.

Nonya kuehs in so many colours.

And now for the chowdown.

Filling up on the oysters instead of prawns.

There are a number of live stations - Rojak, noodles and salad to name a few!

A mishmesh of things that caught my eye and really, with high tea that is how the appetite is. I find it hard to eat a proper meal at such an improper meal time. At 3pm, having to skip lunch is such a torture too!

Hokkien mee that fared well in flavour but was on the soggy side.

My green affair with baby spinach, onions, feta cheese, anchovies with orange olive dressing.

The most unlikely find at the Hi Tea spread, congee that came with a whole host of ingredients - looking very much like teochew porridge.

This laksa live station was very different from the others - it came with a pick your own ingredients feature and oddly, what they had on display was all yong tau foo ingredients. Toss in a dollop of belachan for a lipsmacking time!

DSC_9870

It hit all the notes for spicy and packed a mean punch too. Broth was substantial too, now where is my white laksa noodle to complete the meal!

DSC_9873

A more subdued prawn noodle with an equally robust broth.

Do not forget to give their indian dishes a try too - naan, briyani rice and a slew of curry dishes that were really appetizing!

DSC_9875

Irresistible freshly made crepes - blueberry, banana or chocolate and I went ahead with blueberry that was clearly canned blueberries and did not go with my icecream choices of mango and vanilla.

Comforting tau suan to end off this local feast pig out.

And the most surprising find in the buffet line - sweet tangerines! They were just so juicy and succulent I had to make space just for them. A worthier treat than the other desserts in my opinion.
