The Great Majestic Buffet. Laaaami ah!
there's only ONE place i haven't added to my list of buffet must-try: The Grand Majestic. with the exception of Marriott that regularly serve themed buffets, all the other places offer a selection of international dishes. Grand Majestic is anything and everything chinese.

Scallops Dumpling, seasoned perfectly with chili paste, ginger, lemon and soy sauce.
Jelly Fish Salad, tossed in vinegar, pimiento strips and garnished with sesame seeds. I love this dish with century eggs!
Salted Egg and Tomato Salad - red, firm tomato cubes tossed with pickled salted eggs. Went very well with the steamed lapu-lapu fish fillet.
Classic Peking Duck - Whole Roasted Duck, crispy fatty skin filleted and wrapped in a flour tortilla together with sweet hoisin sauce and fresh spring onions.
Taro Mango - grounded root tuber, seasoned and wrapped around bits of ripe mango, crusted with a flour mixture and deep fried. A perfect mix of Sweet and Salty taste that melts in your mouth.
Crispy Golden Pork Spareribs - a perfect slice of pork spareribs spiced and pressure cooked, coated with a batter and deep fried. Perfect with a chili-soy sauce dip and eaten with steaming hot rice.
Steamed Lapu-Lapu Fish Fillet - tender fish meat slightly seasoned and steamed, served with fresh shallots, ginger, fried garlic, soy sauce and blanched with hot hot vegetable oil.
Steamed Shrimps - fresh giant shrimps, blanched until golden-red and served over ice. best eaten with chili paste mixed with black vinegar.
Chinese Biko - Boiled Sticky Rice, layered with sweet black bean stuffing and glazed with melted chocolate.
There are other equally tasty and tempting dishes to sample. Perhaps another day, when the stars align to conspire that I get another invitation to a buffet lunch in Grand Majestic (Happy Birthday Mamu Inday and Ma'am Nits!). :P
