cos we r aunties. we wanna gd & cheap.
if certain food is gd, u wanna eat many many helpings mah
my philosophy different.... me just wan good food....... dun mind paying more if the food is good... but would definitely mind if pay alot for mediocre food...... and i believe good food is not meant to keep eating also..... so i dun need many helpings... e.g. if u every day eat abalone... crabs... sharks fin.... some day keep on eating all that "good" food will become bland oso.......

I will like the skin to be soft and one bite break texture, can enlighten me on how to go abt it?

Thank you mod.
i thot roast pork normally has crispy skin de?

why must eat buffet then?? (normally the best dishes are not in buffet menu) can always don't eat buffet.... or eat buffet den order 1 or 2 ala carte items...

wacky
i tried a la carte dinner b4. quite yummy. there was a mango cod that is particularly memorable.

but hor, buffet can eat a lot more items by paying a bit more. n the buffet items are quite good too. we ordered the roast duck several times n the wasabi prawns, fish, beef were all quite good. chilli crab was so-so but I thot still better than the one at jing's dim sum lunch buffet

i noe.... i just saying myself....

and cos oso i just wonder why if ppl like the orh nee and it ish not in the buffet... cannot order just the orh nee by itself to eat?? (just like ppl who ask me why i can't go buffet eat it like a non-buffet -- well i DO do that mah... dat is why sometimes i oso got go buffets...) it sounds like having buffet for the sake of eating buffet liddat....

i can understand wad u mean lah. sometimes eat at a not so good buffet n better ala carte restaurant, price can b almost the same but satisfaction level can b much higher at the restaurant.

but then when pay for buffet le, likely would have eaten a lot so might not have much space for extra items from ala carte menu. in tat case, just pick a dessert from the buffet menu just to satisfy craving lor
