Buffet lovers alert! Azur at Crowne Plaza Hotel is launching a series of premium buffet dinners for the gourmand with a penchant for unpretentious yet tasteful dining experiences. For the first edition of the gourmand experience, Azur launches Feast Of The Seven Seas this July over a limited period of two weekends (19-21 July 2013, 26-28 July 2013).
Selection of Premium Chilled Seafood 4.5/5
For the gourmand experience, diners will get to feast on the most decadent and exotic fresh seafood and shellfish flown in from different parts of the world. Pick from chilled seafood counter a premium selection of Boston Lobsters, Steamed Blue Crabs, Tasmanian Crayfish, New Zealand Green Mussels, Freshly Shucked Fines de Claires Oysters, Jumbo Bay Clams and Poached Tiger Prawns.
Lobster Bisque 4.2/5
The Lobster Bisque was packed with the beautiful lobster flavour, robust and velvety.
Black Pepper Slipper Lobster 4.2/5
The Black Pepper Slipper Lobster was fresh and nicely coated with the pepperish flavour. The black pepper was slightly on the sweet side not overly spicy, allowing one to still enjoy the freshness and sweetness of slipper lobster.
Hawker Style Stir Fried Bamboo Clams 3/5
The Hawker Style Stir Fried Bamboo Clams is cooked in a chilli crab like sauce which was very delectable. Unfortunately the bamboo clams with a bit overcooked and tough.
Baked Whole Salmon with Seafood and Aromatic Spices 4.5/5
It was very interesting to know how the chef pieced the salmon, scallops and prawns all together into a dish. The Baked Whole Salmon with Seafood and Aromatic Spices was definitely one of the favourite among the group. When eaten together with the coconut and lemongrass espuma, the combination reminded me our local otak dish which was quite unique and delish.
Baked Conchigliette Pasta with Shrimp & Mozzarella Cheese 2.8/5
The Baked Conchigliette Pasta with Shrimp & Mozzarella Cheese was probably the least favourite. The pasta was kind of dry and felt like the dish is screaming for more sauce. For a seafood themed, it was lackluster.
Parisian Mussel with Fresh Herb Crumbles 4/5
The Parisian Mussel with Fresh Herb Crumbles was fresh and fat. I liked the simplicity in execution allowing one to fully enjoy the nature flavour of the sea.
Besides what I have tried, they are many other delightful seafood dishes such Truffle Risotto with Pan Seared Scallop, Truffle Salt and Caviar Butter, Amritsari Fish, Freshly Sliced Sashimi and Soft Shell Crab Tempura available during Feast of the Seven Seas. All these mouthwatering menu items await alongside the selection of award winning cheeses from New Zealand, appertising starters, freshly baked bread and desserts.
