Hotel Jen Tanglin has just re-engineered their buffet dinner to five weekly themed spread promising variety, freshness, quality and taste! From now till May 2017, the buffet themes include International nights to Asian flavours to Lobster frenzy to live barbecues and seafood galore; each with its unique experience.

On Sundays and Mondays, the “International” Buffet spread comes with a generous selection of roasted prime beef ribs, pork knuckles and Virginia honey lemon ham, baked whole Norwegian Salmon and barbecued pork ribs. The spread was very similar to what I had over Chinese New Year and minor adjustments made to the salad corner.

Seafood on ice is the place to validate the buffet price - crabs, shellfish and all things decadent!

Spot the unusual sushi - lobster!

Green tea soba to pair with the cold seafood.

This hot station is a permanent feature at their buffet, roasts, noodles and occasionally a noodle fry up.

I'd be content with a plate of char siew siew yoke rice!

And desserts which always deserve a separate compartment for.

Finding durian penyat at a buffet is always exciting, almost like stumbling upon a gem and seeing if its worth the calories at all.

The cold selection was legitimately tasty and worth at least two servings. My DIY Rojak could do with more prawn paste but the idea of tossing fruits and vegetables with prawn paste did take some sin out of the usual staples of squid and tau pok and fried dough fritters!

Feasting on seafood!

For the numerous times at J65, the kueh pie tees  have been a common feature and never fail to disappoint with their crispy shells and spot on chilli paste.

Duck versus pork, the struggle was so real...I had to have both.

I always leave space for dessert and the best of the plate goes to the unassuming durian penyat. Thick, pulpy and so sinful!

Here's the round down of the other feasts happening throughout the week, there is surely something for everyone!

Tuesdays are “Colours of Asia” Buffet with specialties from various Asian countries with special features like “Teh-Tarik”, “Roti Canai” and indoor live-kitchen churning out Tandoors to Laksa.


On Wednesdays, it's all about Lobsters at their “Lobster Rock-n-Roll” from the ice bar to the baked, curried, stir-fried and grilled!
 
Come Thursdays, diners get a real treat at their “Live Barbecue” nights with alfresco stations serving a variety of meats and seafood - Korean Bulgogi of pork belly and beef ribs!

On Fridays and Saturdays it’s “Seafood Mania” with huge selection of seafood and key highlights to the likes of Alaskan Crab, Mud Crab, Boston Lobster, fresh prawns, mussels and clams.


All buffets are accompanied with a wide selection of salads and a tempting array of desserts both local and international.


The above themed are priced competitively at SGD55++ per person from Sundays to Tuesdays and SGD65++ from Wednesdays to Saturdays.
