Chinese Cuisine has countless delicious and fantastic dishes that are appreciated all over the world. But what makes it difficult to enjoy a wide variety of Chinese dishes is that Chinese usually eat communally and share their dishes with others, which makes the serving size in most Chinese restaurants too large for solo diners or couples. And here’s where a Chinese Delicacies Buffet at “Feast” - an elegant dining room on the ground floor of Royal Orchid Sheraton Hotel & Tower - comes into play.

Chinese Cuisine has countless delicious and fantastic dishes that are appreciated all over the world. But what makes it difficult to enjoy a wide variety of Chinese dishes is that Chinese usually eat communally and share their dishes with others, which makes the serving size in most Chinese restaurants too large for solo diners or couples. And here’s where a Chinese Delicacies Buffet at “Feast” - an elegant dining room on the ground floor of Royal Orchid Sheraton Hotel & Tower - comes into play. Whether you’re coming alone, with a partner, with a whole family…or just want to try a little bit of everything – from Peking duck, suckling pig, seafood….to a vast variety of Chinese dishes and desserts - Feast makes it easy and hassle-free to enjoy a Chinese meal in all its splendor.

***-Buffet Line-***

[Peking Duck & Suckling Pig]

It’s not an overstatement to say that Peking Duck and Suckling Pig are luxury dishes fit for an emperor. Looking back into China’s long history, Peking duck was once considered such a delicacy that it was reserved only for the imperial family, and Suckling Pig was a valuable and rare dish of a banquet. No wonder this duck-and-pig station is the highlight of this buffet. The Peking Duck was wrapped piece by piece by a hotel staff. How convenient! The taste and aroma of the duck skin might not match those made in top-notch Chinese restaurants, but the texture was pleasantly dry and crispy. The sauce was not overly sweet, the crepe was thin and soft – a truly delightful treat for an all-you-can-eat feast. The Suckling Pig, on the other hand, had a little too much fat under the skin for my liking. However, the pork skin itself was very crispy and well-seasoned. After I scraped the fat off the skin, everything was perfect!

Apart from these two popular dishes, the roasted duck and barbecued pork sitting on the same station were both tender and succulent…Make sure you give them a try!

[Seafood on Ice]

The theme is Chinese food alright. But it doesn’t mean that you’ll miss out on an array of seafood choices. At Feast there’s quite a good selection of seafood on ice – shrimps, prawns, New Zealand mussels, and oysters. And the keyword here is f-r-e-s-h! The prawn flesh was firm, bouncy and sweet. The mussels were about the size of a palm. And oysters…I’m usually cautious with raw oysters and at times completely avoid them for fear of chancing upon a not-so-fresh one…Not this time! They might not be Fine de Claire, but oysters here were fresh, sweet and creamy enough – and went perfectly well with Thai-style condiments. What a delight!

[Dim Sum]

With a name that can be literally translated to “Touch the Heart”, Dim sum is undeniably one of the most well-loved Chinese delicacies. And there are enough on offer here to touch everyone’s heart. From shrimp Har Gow, pork Siu Mai, to pork buns and sweet cream buns…etc. All are kept hot and steamy inside steamer baskets. I tried a few dumplings. They might look a tad too small, but the shrimp-and-pork fillings were bouncy and well-seasoned, the thin starch skin was soft but not soggy. Obviously the chefs here know how to do things right. So the verdict is : Dim Sum may not be of a 5-star quality, but they’re worth a try.

[A bold take on Pizza..]

Pizza might be known as an Italian dish, but, interestingly, many countries also have their own unique versions of pizza. Turkey has Lahmacun, Germany has Flammkuchen…So why shouldn’t there be a Chinese-style pizza too? And here’s what I like about Feast’s version of Chinese pizza :

- The pizza crust was made in authentic Italian style - thin, crispy and a bit chewy.

- The toppings are slices of roasted duck and barbecued pork on a thick layer of mozzarella cheese. Sounds like the taste might be unappealingly bland? Fret not! The pizza is seasoned with a flavorful Chinese barbecue sauce. And slices of pickled ginger on top give it a bit of a kick…Tasty and delightfully Asian.

- Forget about frozen-and-reheated pizza frequently found in other hotel buffets. Here you can watch the chef flatten the dough with a rolling pin, assemble the pizza with toppings and sauce, putting it in a gigantic wood fired oven, add seasonings, and slice it up…The processes were so entertaining and mouth-watering that I just couldn’t wait to sink my teeth into a slice of that warm, cheese-laden crispy pizza…Yumm..!

Now is this the best pizza ever? …To be honest, when it comes to pizza, nothing beats the good old Italian classics. However, for an innovative east-meets-west pizza recipe, they pulled it off remarkably well. The ingredients were good - quality. All the flavors came together in an awesome combination. Absolutely a must-try!

[Soup and Noodles]

A good meal can’t be complete without some hot soup. Here they have a thick Chinese Egg Drop Soup with Crab Meat and a clear Double Boiled Mushroom Soup with Wolfberries. Both had a pleasant mild flavor, and they didn’t hold back on the crab meat and Shiitake mushrooms. Well done!

Noodles with barbecued red pork are made on the spot. Experience taught me that noodles are at best mediocre in most hotel buffets, so my intention was to just skip it entirely. It was only after I had finished desserts, sipped coffee and was too full to take another bite, that I heard some of my dining companions gave compliments on the noodles. Oh gee… I must’ve missed something there..!

[Salad & Chinese Hors d'oeuvres]

Apart from an ordinary salad-with-dressings which I feel isn’t worth mentioning about, they also have some more delectable choices like Sichuan-style Japanese Cucumber Salad, Roasted Duck Salad with Pickled Ginger, Crispy Chicken with Fresh Fruit Salad, Chicken Feet Salad, and Spicy Pork Ear Salad…etc. I especially enjoyed the flavorful cucumber salad - the taste was well-balanced, the Japanese cucumber was fresh and crisp…What a refreshing change after a large dose of rich Chinese food!

[Chinese dishes]

Fans of Chinese food will be delighted to see a wide array of hot Chinese Dishes to suit all tastes here. The palatable Stir-fried Shrimps with Sichuan Sauce blends the sweetness of big, fat shrimps with the fiery flavors of red peppers and chili bean sauce. The Stir-fried Soft Shell Crab with Black Pepper was crispy and tasteful. Those who prefer mild flavor can opt for dishes like Sea Asparagus or Braised Sea Cucumber in Brown Sauce. Fish lovers will enjoy the delicious Steamed White Snapper Fillet in Black Bean Sauce and Capsicum. And, if you happen to come here on your birthday, don’t forget to follow the Chinese tradition by trying some of the Fried Longevity Noodles. Be careful not to break off the noodle that you’re picking up though!

[Desserts]

Unlike in most Chinese restaurants where choices of desserts are limited to a few well-known Chinese sweets, here at Feast they have all kinds of delicious treats to indulge any sweet tooth. From traditional Thai and Chinese desserts to homemade ice cream and a vast variety of cakes – everything looked absolutely tempting and I commend my own sterling effort to try as many of them as possible. Here we go…

● Ice cream – The ice cream stand had nine different flavors and all kinds of toppings you could possibly imagine. I tried the mango sherbet and the creamy coconut ice cream. Both had wonderfully smooth texture and distinct flavors. For toppings I opted for the sweet and juicy preserved rambutan in syrup. Very refreshing and irresistibly delicious!

● Chocolate Crème brûlée – Where Crème brûlée is concerned, I like a layer of hard burnt caramel to be a bit thicker and crispier. However, the creamy custard had a deep and intense chocolate flavor which I thoroughly enjoyed…Lovely.

● Cheesecakes – With my stomach capacity quickly dwindling, I had to do a bit of a detective work. A chitchat with a friendly hotel staff revealed that among countless kinds of cakes on display here, cheesecakes are customers’ favorites. My pick were the mango cheesecake and pistachio cheesecake. Absolutely sinful!

● Ginkgo in Taro Cream Soup – Seeing that they have this hard-to-find traditional Chinese dessert, I didn’t hesitate to take one little bowl of it for a taste-test. The soup was light, silky smooth, and not overly sweet…perfect for those who like the fragrance of taro. Another popular dish - the ginkgo nut with sweet taro mousse and sticky rice - was also very tasty. Be sure to save some room in your stomach for these guilty pleasures.

The meal ended on a lighter note with a cup of hot coffee and a piece of fortune cookie. Full to the max and ultimately satisfied, I took a moment to gaze upon the beautiful night view of Chao Phraya river as I walked back to the pier and waited for the next shuttle boat to come.
