Imagine a plate of just-grilled seafood with some cheese dipping sauce is served right in front of you. You smell the char, and your mouth begins to water. Instantaneously, you pick up a piece of grilled prawn and unshell it. The juice of the prawn dripping along your fingers. Now dip the whole piece of prawn into the stretchy, gooey cheese sauce. Close your eye, savour the firm, crunchy prawn flavoured with melting cheese in your mouth. Welcome to the world of indulgence! It was exactly how I felt when I tried the BBQ seafood and cheese dinner buffet at Novotel Bangkok Platinum Pratunam.
What you must try at this dinner buffet:
(1) Grilled seafood and classic meat cuts of pork and chicken steaks
An array of grills is appealingly displayed at the counter and is prepared live on the open grill counter. Diners can select prawns, New Zealand mussels, seafood skewers, squids, scallops, pork and chicken steaks. For those who like grilled prawns and scallops, this dinner buffet is for you! The cheesy dipping sauce was the only sauce I kept getting more and more. It matched well not only with grilled seafood, it’s also a perfect dipping sauce for the bread.
(2) Crab lovers’ heaven
What makes this buffet a heaven for crab lovers? All-you-can-eat crabs! Diners can choose to have stir-fried or steamed crabs. If you like traditional Thai curry crabs, this dinner buffet will definitely satisfy you. All you need to do is to tell the chef at the live cooking station how you wish you crab dish be, the wonderful chef will make and serve it to your dining table.
(3) Spicy Thai papaya salad (somtum)
For me, this papaya salad is always the best starter. At this dinner buffet, you can adjust the spiciness and ingredients totally according to your wish and taste. The papaya salad here is authentic, meaning it can be really spicy for foreigners. We highly recommend you to advise the chef your preference of spiciness when you place your order.
What you may not want to miss:
(1) Fresh sushi counter
Although choices are limited, sushi was served fresh and displayed nicely when we tried the dinner buffet.
(2) A lot of choices for hot dishes including just-baked pizzas, Chinese roast and other Thai dishes
Pizzas are freshly baked. Hot dishes are also tempting. Don’t forget to try their famous roast duck and BBQ red pork. Thai dishes are
(3) Tapas and bakery
A wide selection of tapas including cold cuts and salad bar is also available at this dinner buffet. I like the idea of serving tapas on spoons. One bite with a mouthful of flavours! All bakery at this buffet is homemade guaranteeing the best taste and quality.
The best counter to complete your buffet experience is always the dessert counter. At the dinner buffet at Novotel Platinum Pratunam, they serve a selection of home-made sweets, ice-cream and seasonal fruits.
