[Food Review] The Night We Rendezvoused @ The Straits Cafe

We had a secondary school gathering last week and decided to meet without the families this time! What a refreshing change it was to socialize and catch up with REAL PEOPLE. It did me good - for the night. 

Anyway, for today's post, I'm sharing some photos of the food at the international buffet spread - The Straits Cafe @ Rendezvous Grand Hotel.  We were there on the eve of a public holiday. And boy, the place ran full house!

And you know what? I found out that as I grow older, I am unable to stomach so much food anymore. The photos you are about to see are only less than half of what was offered at the buffet which I managed to savor.

Great ambience! Cozy if you sit by the window bay. And nearest to the dessert table - if you know what I mean.

These were my first course. The cold platter! It was the first time I tried this unusual looking crab - spanner crab. Not really a crab person so I had problems digging the meat out. Spent too much time on it!
The sashimi was super yums and fresh! Loved it. And I had 3 large succulent oysters that night. An overdose for me. 

These large grilled prawns were a favorite amongst us.  I had 3 of these! Yummy! Definitely one of the highlights of the night.

Actually I was there before the crowd came in and saw this delectable macaroons! I tell ya, I've.not.had.one.in.my.life. Sad right? So I was really happy that I was finally going to try them. But alas, I guess I am not meant to eat this? By the time I was ready for dessert, it was gone and it never got replenished.

This was what saved the night! Durian pengat! Chilled, pungent and creamy - the perfect end to the night.
Can you imagine there were so much more food that I missed? I think, our mouths were too busy yakking.

3 missing in the picture! We never managed to fit in all of us in a photo at any one time anyway. haha! Thanks all for a wonderful night.

If you are game for a buffet anytime soon, you may wish to check out this establishment! Don't be fooled by my food pictures here! There are a lot more others like the roasted meats, Chinese cuisine, kebabs, local cuisines and other fresh seafood to savor!
