Ellenborough Cafe Part II - A Pictorial

Had the opportunity to try out Ellenborough Market Cafe's new crab buffet before its official launch on the 25th of June, courtesy of the marketing department of Swissotel Merchant Court. I'm not a huge fan of crab so I'll just let the pictures do the talking. Please note that presentation of dishes for the actual buffet might be different as our dishes were served ala carte style.

The crab buffet runs from 25th June to 12th July @ $46++/pax and only for dinner. Thanks to Merchant Court for the invite again!

Wow, looks like the buffet has a lot to offer. The ambience and presentation looks nice too. Some of the combination looks new to me, eg crab risotto, Salad of Hokkaido Crabmeat with Apple & Walnut...

Can I know what is Durian Pengat and how does it taste like?

Hi Sugar Bean, durian pengat is essentially durian puree with coconut milk and palm sugar. Its like eating sweet and slightly milky durian =)

Hi! I would like to suggest if you can add "hotel" label in your blog, so that readers like me will find it more convenient to research food reviews about hotels' restaurants. Thanks a lot!! :)
