Swez Brasserie in Eastin Hotel is having their Japanese Style Buffet during weekend and since I am with the stay in weekends, we had our buffet dinner in the hotel as well. The spread of buffet is simply a large variety of Japanese food which not disappoint me at all. It is a great spread of buffet with quality Japanese food which I love about it.
– The variety of salads-
Started with the salad range, it does a plentiful choices of the Japanese delights. Ranges all the way from the they do served the chuka wakame ( marinated seaweed with enoki salad) ,pan seared tuna,imo salad (potato salad), tomato salad, namesu ( radish & carrot vineger) and even more. The salad are all freshly made and I love the chuka wakame itself which brings the freshness of the taste of marinated seaweed.
– The fresh oysters and prawn on the bed of ice-
– The mussels and scallops-
After trying some of the salads, we venture to the fresh items which is the highlights of each Japanese buffet. Cold cuts which you can find fresh oysters, prawns as well as scallops are also available in the buffet spread. The fresh items are available to enjoy them straight away and if you are thinking to get some to the teppanyaki area, you can grab some and the chef will be teppanyaki them for you too. It is such a sweet idea as I prefer to have the prawns and scallops in the teppan style.
– The tuna belly-

Fresh seafood lovers can also enjoy the variety of the fresh sashimi which is available at buffet. Freshly cut to the right sizes as well as the freshness of the salmon, and tuna belly does impress me too.

Each cuts is amazingly good where it is freshly made and being me who are not a fans of sashimi lovers had also fall in love with it.
