Buffet Dinner at The Taste, Westin Langkawi

After a long walk at the beach front, that will definitely boost up the appetite for food. In fact, when we sign in for the Dream Holiday Package in Westin, it comes with 2 complimentary breakfast as well as 1 buffet dinner for 2.

So, here it is the complimentary buffet dinner that we are going for.

Do you realize, I kept taking the desserts pictures?? The desserts really really caught my attention. It’s colourful, and it looks delicious. If you have a sweet tooth, you wouldn’t want to miss anything out of it. Right?
Oh my God!!! Look at the chocolate fondue! Too bad, they don’t have many fruits to dip into it, what they offered is marshmallow and butter cakes. If you have dined in Spies Garden in Rasa Sayang, you would definitely compare this and that.
Here are the seafood section, where they have flower crabs, prawns, mussels. All these are got to accommodate with these sauces, pickles, lemons and so on.

The ice cream area where mostly children will eye on it. Look at the ice cream cone, isn’t it creative?
I realize one thing, I don’t see papaya in their fruits choices. What they offered is basically honeydew, dragon fruit, pineapple, watermelon and pamelo.

For the hot dishes counter, you will see a corner on noodles. That night was a beef noodle, however the soup base is chicken stock according to the hotel. Thus, I have one for myself. The taste was unexpected awful. I can’t even tell is this Penang Lor Mee or what?
Hot dishes area are offering mixed vegetables, garlic prawns, coffee chicken, black beans steam fishes, etc. I didn’t quite enjoy it, that can tell from the plate that am taking.

However, hubby is enjoying every food that he took from the buffet line.

Oh yes, how could I miss this out. They also have starter before the main course. And these starters are mini in size, cute and tempting. I particularly like the shred duck with green chilli, that taste good.
Another mini starter is cut tomato, capsicums, and other shredded meat. That taste like salsa.

Chicken wrap (chicken lobak) with red chilli is something unique too.

And this bean curd skin wrapped with fish meat, also another unique starter.

Apart from these mini starters, they also offered a variety of salads, I believe this is a must for many buffet dinner. As well as soup section. That night they have 2 types of soup, one of them is the shark fin soup. Taste wise, that can be compared with big restaurant like Overseas in Imbi Road.

Overall, I don’t find this buffet dinner is value for money, as it costs RM98++ per person. But with this price, you could have variety of food in Sharkies Corner of E&O Hotel & Spies Garden of Rasa Sayang Resort. Well, am not bias, am sure many agree with me.

Hahaha...I was really going to ask whether it was an all dessert buffet you went for ;o)

the pics of the desserts look tempting, but not the other range. RM98 is a price to pay for an extravagant buffet outing.

With that price, I too agree that the spread in Rasa Sayang S Garden is much better...but this looks ok especially when you are out on a vacation.

Oh gorgeous! I'd be happy with just the mini starters and desserts, no need for the other courses. OK, maybe throw in the shellfish on ice while we're at it!

Hi WMW, hehehehehe.... I was asking the same question myself too! hahahahah...

Hi j2kfm, yup, RM98 is a bit costly, some more in Langkawi.

Hi CK Lam, looks ok for the dessert, not the main course. :(

Hi Buzzingbee, only if you have sweet tooth! :D
