Ever since monkeys and I came back from our Vietnam trip 5 months ago, I really miss the food there.. Huhuhu.. At times, I really wish I can find Vietnamese food in Kuching but I’ve been asking around the food hunters in Kuching, but to no avail.
When I received a call from Pullman’s Marketing Communications Executive, Christy, on the food tasting at Puzzle on VIETNAMESE DISHES, I
fly up to the sky am so happy and looking forward to it. I even skipped my workout for foodz. Hohoho.
I don’t normally eat in sequence from appetizer to salad to main dishes then to desserts when I’m at buffet, so my pictures might not in order too. Here’s Vietnamese Salad Station >.<
Green Papaya Salad with Grilled Beef. Green papaya is proven to have many health benefits for our digestive, immune, and cardiocvascular systems. No wonder Vietnamese are all very pretty.
Beef Sliced Salad.
Pomelo Salad with Prawns Southern Style.
I wanna eat all the pomelo can??
Green Mango & Cripsy Mud Fish Salad.
Chicken Salad with Herbs
Prawn Steamed Pancake.
and thank you Chef for opening one for us to take picha.. Teeheehee..
From Vietnamese Hot Dishes – I super duper infinity LIKE this Fried Rice with Crab Meat & Onion. I even ask the GM if I can tapao it home. But of course cannot la..
and they also have Grilled Squid and Chili and also Sweet & Sour Mud Fish Broth that evening.
View from Chef’s side. Hohoho.
and view from diner’s side, looking at Chef Viet Anh Nguyen imported all the way from Vietnam, preparing Pho for us.
Next, a demo by Chef on how he prepared Ho Tay Prawn Fritters.
and the final demo at the station was Pancake..
Chef putting ingredients and rolling Mushroom Steamed Pancake.
and the final result.
At carving station, we were pampered by delicious Vietnamese Roasted Beef.
and also Grilled Fish Vietnamese Style.
If you’ve been to Vietnam like us, you’ll know that their food portion is small, very small. Even small eater like me, I need few bowls of their pho. HAHAHA.. Ok, I mean, their food portion is for people who wants to eat clean and on strict diet. But Pullman being extremely nice, they even have Sea Bass Fillet with Fruit Jam.
Chicken Roll with Spicy Tomato Seaweed Salsa.
Roasted Beef Platter with Shallot Confit.
Fillet Beef Mignon with Apple Reduction Sauce Shallot Confit.
I think I just overloaded my post with many many pictures.. I shall skip some of them for the coffee all the way from Vietnam.
Thanks to Pullman, I’ve the chance to smell and sip a cup of Vietnamese Drip Coffee by the Chef.
Jeng jeng jeng.. My all time favourite corner in buffet – DESSERTS !!
This is something new !! I see bananaz !!
and what is Vietnamese food without its desserts.
Vietnamese Coffee Jelly.
When seated, we were served Prawn on Sugar Cane. Thank you so much. Hehehe.
and I went to grab more Mushroom Steamed Pancake !! Told you their portion is small already. Glad that this is buffet style I can have as many as I want. Kekeke.
and I’m loving this Vietnamese Traditional Soup cos it haz no meat in there. Hahaha.
I think I don’t mind become a Vietnamese now.
Bun lover’s expression who found her butter went missing It was so funny when Jacq whispered to me that she took the butter and I still asked Yien to check her Note2 if she has the butter earlier when she camwhored with her phone. She checked and said “Yes wor. The butter was there.”
and the culprit was the lady in black who couldn’t hold her laughters when Yien found out !!!
and the bloggers camwhore with Pullman’s General Manager, Eric Tan
and I shall end this post with Eric, General Manager of Pullman Kuching together with the crew imported all the way from Vietnam.
The Vietnamese Buffet at Puzzle is priced at RM69++ only. I said only because this is the cheapest buffet dinner in 5-stars International Brand Hotel. I’m not sure if I can come back again for their buffet dinner cos dinner prepared by Mama everyday. Hohoho.. But I’m definitely going to try their Ala Carte Menu on Vietnamese Promotion @ RM33++ which includes Starter, Main Course and Desserts. For reservation or enquiries, 082-222888 is their hotline. Oh oh. Vietnamese Food Festival Promotion until 1st September 2013 only oh.
