This Autumn, the restaurant at The Cordis Hotel – The Place, has launched a dinner buffet featuring the theme of “Japanese & Korean Autumn Celebration”. The buffet highlights many popular delicacies from two Asian culinary destinations, which also includes a selection of Japanese beers and wine.
Japanese & Korean Autumn Celebration Dinner
Starting with cold appetizers, there are fresh lobsters, crab legs, whelks and clams at the seafood station. Two kinds of freshly shucked oyster are served, the Australian one is particularly buttery, creamy and carries a tad subtle sweetness.
The Korean Imperial appetizer platter consists of kimchi and spicy marinated lotus root, spinach and assorted mushroom; the soba noodle is also colourfully displayed including white, red and green colours.
Whilst at the sushi bar, assorted sashimi is offered upon your choice, as well as Japanese sushi hand rolls and a few fire-grilled sushi.

The noodle station offers two soup bases, chicken soup and pork rib soup; but my favourite is the traditional chicken and ginseng double boiled soup with a surprisingly strong bitter aftertaste.
The hot dishes also highlight plenty of Japanese and Korean cooking, including a miso and cheese baked lobster, wagyu beef, Korean luncheon meat fried rice and Korean beef ribs.

In addition, there are tteokbokki (i.e. hot and spicy Korean rice cake), Korean fried chicken and shrimp tempura. Some chutney and mint yogurt to be served with Indian curry, also find roasted ribeye and pan-seared foie gras.

My most loved section is definitely the dessert corner with many Japanese-Korean-inspired desserts. A green tea chocolate fountain with marshmallow lollies, green tea cheese cake, daifuku with red bean filling, half-baked cheese tart; some other favourites are Japanese white peach pudding, homemade warabimochi and surely the huge varieties of Movenpick ice cream. Mango & passion fruit, maple walnut, blueberry cheesecake, lemon & lime; fresh fruit juices are served during the meal as a great refreshment too.
