Kuishin Bo, The authentic Japanese buffet restaurant.

IMG_6118The first time that I heard of this place was my first year in University. My seniors were buzzing about heading down for some Japanese buffet. And so four years later, I finally stepped foot into one of its outlets in Great World City. It was my birthday and its always dated near Mothers’ Day. So we had to make do with outdoor seating. 
IMG_6109The main attraction of the buffet is the seafood spread. Raw sashimi, sushi and maki, customers will be able to choose from a wide array of dishes. IMG_6063My favourite picks from the seafood spread: The cold king crab, the fresh sweet salmon slices and the scallops. I would love
IMG_6089Dessert lovers would be excited when they set their eyes upon the counter dedicated entirely to desserts of various cultures, from eclairs, to scones, to Japanese traditional cakes. A pity that my tummy was way too filled with seafood that I couldn’t appreciate the desserts properly. IMG_6102The restaurant boasts special promotions and brings in special traditional dishes from different provinces of Japan. The seafood spread is definitely the main draw of the restaurant but other than that, I personally find the buffet price maybe a little too expensive and not worth the food that is offered.

Rose Veranda, bringing you 164 different tea blends.

Buffet restaurants are one of Singapore’s favourite dining choices. We want a piece of everything. From Japanese, High-tea to International. So if there are so many options out there, how do we decide?

Rose Veranda is a high-tea buffet situated at Shangri-La Restaurant. Do not mistake the lush and posh furnishing for another high-tea buffet available in a classy hotel. What sets them apart is the astounding selection of 164 premium tea blends available for tasting. From Geisha Blossom to Imperial Rose, you are spoilt for choices. I was here for Restaurant Week and they gave a limit of only one teapot per customer. However, if you were to be here for their high-tea buffet, you can try as many flavours as you want. That is if your body is strong enough for all that tea. Enough about the tea, what about the food?

Rose Veranda offers a wide spread of dishes and cuisines but mostly Asian. While the dim sum and sushi failed to meet expectation, I was blown away by some of the steaming hot dishes. Not to mention, there is a self-service laksa station. I was happily spamming away the laksa leaves. Another station to take note, is the dessert station nonetheless. Chocolate fondue, ice cream, cakes and puddings, Rose Veranda is out to give you diabetes.

Laksa from the self-service laksa station. Go and pile on the fresh shrimp and fishcakes. Yummy.

Cheese Lover? There’s a station with an array of cheese for your pleasure.

 Dessert galore.

If you’re looking for first-class TWG tea, excellent service and the perfect tai-tai experience, Rose Veranda is the perfect place for your afternoon tea.
