PAN ASIAN DINNER BUFFET @ Cafe BLD, Renaissance Johor Bahru Hotel, JB
I think this is the best buffet at the Renaissance in the last 2 years!
All you can eat raw oysters and charbroiled oysters too!
I have been to every dinner buffet at this hotel, and of the past 2 years, this buffet today is personally the best.
It is an Asian themed buffet and the selection and flavors were very good.
The large shrimp tom yum soup was an original recipe by GM Kanit (who is from Thailand!). and was very flavorful and not too spicy. All other Thai dishes were also endorsed by him.
Vietnamese spring rolls, lamb briyani in a bamboo tube, Singapore hocken mee, and many other "must try" items.
The pastry staff has changed and the cakes taste better.
The mango sticky rice is good, and the candy apples were nostalgic and delightful.
Both can be enjoyed on Fridays and Saturdays. (There are no live food stalls such as grilled oysters on weekdays).
