Groupon Deal 2013 Review: Buffet Dinner for 1 Person at Zende Restaurant, Seri Pacific Hotel

My Bangkok post will be coming, I assure you  🙂
It’s quite a challenge to sort out more than 1000 photos and that doesn’t include those from cousins’ camera.
While we wait for the Bangkok trip stories, I would like to share our makan experience at Zende Restaurant, Seri Pacific Hotel.
This hotel is located next to Putra World Trade Center (PWTC).
I bought several Groupon Deal vouchers last month including this buffet dinner at Seri Pacific Hotel.
I was a little let down when I saw a poster near the lift that says buffet dinner in Zende is only RM50.00 nett. So my saving is only 10 cents, not RM28.10 as advertised.
Hmmmppphh  🙁
We were greeted by a friendly lady upon entering.
It was Thursday, so the dinner theme in that night was seafood.
Pretty quiet on that night. I guess the crowd was at the Ballroom where the Ramadan buffet is held every nght till Raya.
I secretly hoped that they would bring some delicious masakan kampung from the ballroom and serve them here  😛
DIY Tom Yam Noodles
The condiments for the Tom Yam noodles.
We both didn’t try it.
Ikan pari, kembung and squids at the grill station.
Seafood on ice.
At least I get to eat tempe 😛
The closest dish to masakan kampung.
The name of this dish is Oven Baked Double Fillet of Fish With Mushroom Mousse On Citrus Butter Sauce.
Very bombastic name  😛
However, it tasted weird even with the mushroom sauce.
The fish itself was tasteless.
Cantonese Fried Rice and White Rice.
Steamed siakap with Nyonya sauce.
The usual sushi and sashimi
Two appetisers.
I must say that the selection of appetisers did not disappoint me.
The mashed potato which is hidden behind the prawns was the best thing I had in Zende.
And it has an awesomely long name too for a humble potato dish……Deer Valley Garlic Mashed Potatoes With Shitake Mushroom Sauce
BF’s plate.
My second helping of everything.
See that curry dish at the bottom of the plate?
In the menu and the label placed next to the dish, it was written Salmon Fish Head Curry.
I like salmon and curry. So why not? Took lah 1 piece.
And it turned out that it was not salmon but ikan tenggiri.
Again, hmmmmpppphhh…..  🙁
No salmon here
Seafood chowder (not! :P)
Mixture of East & West.
Of course our local kuih are nicer lah  😛
More desserts here.
The overall buffet spread disappoints me a little bit.
Nevertheless, I’m hoping to try their Citarasa Kampung Buffet during this Ramadan.
I so wanna eat petai and also siput sedut.
