Lunch @ Zenden

Posted on: November 26, 2009

It’s another 1 – 1 offer from Women’s Weekly & this time the venue is @ Zenden Restaurant , Gallery Hotel.

I’m glad to have Grace to accompany me for lunch & i was really looking forward to this lunch as the reviews on hungrygowhere looks quite ok =)

 

I reached earlier so i managed to take pictures before the crowd starts coming in.

The above 2 pictures are the interior of the restaurant & display area for the food. I kind of like the purple & pink covers for the chairs – adds a nice contrast to the environment.

 

Since i had the 1 – 1 voucher, Grace & i decide to take the one with main course & carvery.

And starting from the next picture onwards, the food featured will be part of the buffet spread.

The concept here is quite interesting – It’s a semi buffet which consist of a main course (if you opt for it) + a buffet spread of appetizer, desserts , soup & some hot food.

 

Seeing the chocolate fondue is making me very happy already! =)  The range of cakes were quite ok too & there were fresh fruits.

There were also free flow tea & coffee.

 

Personally i love the cold section very much! My favourite items are the beef , prawns (very fresh) & Smoked Salmon (my all time favourite).

 

Soup was Pumpkin Soup & the taste was pretty good =)

 

Didn’t get to try the Gado Gado but i took the bread. It will be better if it’s more warm… Otherwise it’s still nice & soft and i happily spread butter on it to enjoy!

 

The hot food consist of about 3 choices – pork ribs , siew mai & the other one i can’t remember.

Both pork ribs & siew mai taste quite alright. But when the pork ribs is finished, i think they replaced it with another dish but i didn’t try.

 

Both Grace & i opt for the same main course which is Pan Fried Butter Fish “Nantua”. I find it so so only.

We didn’t even get to try the carvery station which is Roasted Pork Loin if i remember correctly. No time to try it! Haha.

 

We ended our meal with some fruits , ice cream & desserts =)

It was around this time when i felt kind of rushed. Cause when i called to make reservations, i was told that the buffet area will end @ 2pm.

But at 1.30pm , a staff came over to inform us that they have to prepare for a event & they will clear the buffet area soon. So Grace & i quickly went to grab whatever we want =_= 

Other than this slightly unpleasant incident, i would say the service & food @ Zenden is pretty good =)  I don’t mind coming back again but this time i won’t get the main course & carvery as i find the buffet spread is sufficent already.

And i’ll make sure i reach earlier & enjoy the food slowly! By the way, there’s complimentry parking too =)  I remember when we exit the carpark, it show the complimentry parking value is $5 so should be enough during your stay @ Zenden for your meal.
