The buffet is available for lunch and dinner and comes brimmed with mouth-watering international favorites including festive dishes. We attended the preview session which highlighted several of the festive dishes.

In the menu is an abundance of cold delicacies and mushroom soup along with freshly baked bread and rolls to start off with. Chicago Turkey Mixed Salad, Australia Potato Salad, and Walnut Apple Salad are just some that I tried. The latter came with a sauce , whose creaminess was just perfect with the sourness of the green apple.

Expectation of other cold delicacies include Baby Asparagus with Seafood in Citrus Vinaigrette, Mini Ratatouille Salad with Smoked Salmon, Tomato and Mozzarella with Balsamic Reduction, and Smoked Chicken with Teriyaki Sauce.

Hot delicacies from the buffet counter offers Chicken Roulade with Pomegranate Sauce, and Spanish Butter Rice with Nut. For something lighter, try the Poached Seabass with Saffron Sauce.

The Chicken Roulade with Pomegranate Sauce goes well with the Walnut Apple Salad with a nutty bite.
