if u guys didn't get enough of liu lian @ the crab/durian buffet... got this now...



p.s. this one is durian products not durian itself though...


regards,
wacky
the durian buffet dinner is june 15th onwards. i just had it 2 days ago as i was searching for local food buffet, so currently is erm normal stuff. i will say its very not worth it for the 42 bucks currently. and their durian pengat is watery. the chef is slack too, the roast ham, beef and ribs were served cold. oysters were hardly replaced

Roughly how many kgs is the $8 D13?

Actually if you treat it as a durian buffet with crab dishes thrown in, then its pretty good. Someone was sharing tat she went for the ellenborough heritage buffet where they also served freshly opened durians. The durians were not replenished when they ran out. At least for this one, the durians were 'unlimited', really eat til cannot eat anymore.
Erm, my eyeball mark 1 doesn't come with any weighing estimations built in...hahah

I can only "aga" that they are around the same size as the ones we had at Sentosa

Actually I don't mind going for the Sentosa buffet again if there are slots

but some food they had were chee kuay (so long never eat), nasi lemak rice, curry chicken, fried chicken, diy laska and mee siam (mee siam better), popiah, braised pork etc, diy ice kachang, nonya kuays and durian puff.

also a zi zar corner where u can choose the meat and tell the cook to do it in any style u want. no char kuey tiao as mentioned in the ad
Thanks for the revoew. Hows the food overall? The ad mentioned carving, but at tat price they probly serving roasted chicken/duck?

Hmmm, the zi char stn sound interesting, so can get them to do the meats stirred fried, with sambal, with black pepper etc? What meats do they have?

Their standard still down Went there a couple of time, and the earlier visits were quite decent, only the recent one was lousy. Tats the thing, if their durian pengat was lousy, how to go for their durian desserts buffet? Tat time it was overdosed with condensed milk ... yucks.

All along their roast section, the meat are served cold as they do not have ways to keep warm.

Yes, for the durians alone. If you look at it as a durian buffet with crabby dishes thrown in, then you will not be disappointed.

If its 6.30pm reservation, then i certainly dun mind going again.
