Tung Lok Seafood Ala Carte Dinner Buffet @ Orchard Central

I haven't had any buffets for quite awhile, and it is time I indulge a little on FOOD. 

My parents brought us to Tung Lok Seafood Ala Carte Dinner Buffet @ Orchard Central! Have been to this restaurant at a different outlet for a few times and my impression of it has always been Salmon Sashimi. Because every single time we dine at this restaurant, tons of Salmon were not spared. HAHA kiddin', we just had 2 plates for the night. 

Lucky enough, we got Salmon Belly for the second serving! 
(This photo shows the normal Salmon Sashimi)

Five-spiced Meat Balls

The balls probably don't look very appetizing here but it wasn't as bad as I thought.

Appetizer Jelly Fish with Pomelo Sauce

My bro's favourite. I don't eat Jellyfish :/

California Maki & Sanshoku Maki

From the look, you can tell that the sushi is terribly made.. Rice is too soft, seaweed too soggy, Sushi wasn't cut nicely. But what to expect from a buffet? 

Salmon Salad wrapped with Pancake

Anything with crepe tastes twice as yummy for me! So this is surely one of my favourites! 

TungLok Chilli Flower Crab (One serving per table)

Sambal Green Mussels (One serving per table)

I kept digging for the mussels beneath those shells. I would say that this dish isn't too bad, but I still prefer the fresh non-marinated ones served in the seafood sections during Buffets. 

Crispy Fish Skin with Salted Egg Yolk

Best dish of all! Fried fish skin has always been one of my favourite delicacies as it gives an extra crunch like potato chips and it's really too irresistible. With the taste of salted egg yolk within it, every bite makes me crave for more. Usually salted egg yolks are a no-no for me, but this has a perfect balance. 

Crispy Eggplant with Pork Floss

Poached Prawns with Herbal Soup

Deep-fried Prawns with Crispy Oats

I kinda enjoyed this dish as the oats gave the prawns a wonderful crisp for extra texture when you are chewing on it. But I couldn't really taste the original sweetness of the prawns. 

Poached Baby 'Kai Lan' served with 'Chinchalok' Sauce

"Jing Du" Pork Ribs

Deep-fried Sea Bass with Soy Light Sauce

Looks delicious, but the taste was far from expectations. The fish was not soft and smooth and the taste was rather normal. 

Besides the dishes above, there are many other dishes as well, including desserts! (But I wasn't very interested in the desserts..) You can visit their website to view their menu. 

When it comes to buffet, I generally prefer fresh seafood or Japanese types. For Chinese and cooked seafood buffets, I wouldn't mind going once in awhile though. It just depends on what food you are going for. Under Tung Lok, I really like the Dimsum and dinner ala-carte (Tung Lok Signatures), you may want to give it a try! (:
