The seafood section is sufficient but not the most extravagant. They have your usual suspects - oysters, prawns, scallops, mussels and smoked salmon - but you might be disappointed if you are the type who would raid the seafood section to get your money's worth.
On the other hand, the hot food section was a pleasant surprise. I'm not one to usually spend too much time with food warmers but there were many things worth going back for seconds.
Other stuff include chicken cacciatore, roasted chicken, pam-seared salmon, osso bucco (below), shredded duck confit (above), roasted vegetables, cauliflower gratin...
A carving station to satisfy your carnivorous needs.
There is also a cart serving meatball spaghetti and lasagna.
I have never met a lasagna (too plebeian in a ghetto-homemade way) and this didn't change my mind.
Desserts was a mind-boggling sugar fest that would trigger your saliva ducts.
Vanilla cheesecake, meringue roll, hazelnut praline torte, chocolate moouse, tiramisu, chocolate flan, cannolis, apple fritters, panna cottas, gelatos are just some of the stuff I remember.
I was gunning for the tiramisu but that ended up to be a disappointment - too much mascarpone and too little sponge fingers make for mouthfuls of textureless cream.
The radioactive pink macaron shell did the vanilla cheesecake little favors. However, the vanilla cheesecake, which was more of a cheesecake brownie, was delightfully smooth and light.
It was a mistake to finish the chocolatey stuff before moving onto the pistachio financier and lemon meringue tart. Learn from my mistake: Savor the fruity nutty items before you hit the Chocolate Wall of Death.
Out of all the chocolate desserts, my favorite was the hazelnut praline tort.
And when we were done, it was finally time for the bub to get his feed.
