461. Lime @ Parkroyal on Pickering

It’s one of those rare occasions we get together for a buffet but since there’s always a first, we decided to visit Lime at Parkroyal Pickering, where it was known to have a pretty decent brunch buffet. I love how the restaurant gives a open and relaxed atmosphere and we plopped ourselves down at the sofa and started feasting for the next 3 hours. The selection of food was pretty decent though some may argue otherwise. I think Lime dedicates a portion of their food to Nonya cuisine where you can find likes of acar-acar, ayam buah keluak, assam fish, chap chye, kueh pie tie, mee siam and all sorts of nonya kueh. And also not forgetting the famous Matcha fondue where we had fun mixing and playing

The sight of pretty desserts greet you upon entering

A whole selection of bread and pastries

Seafood, the crowd’s favourite

Sashimi

I really love their salmon. It was surprisingly good. Just forget their tuna

Roast for your selection

Smoked Salmon

Thai Salad

Everyone was there for their champagne brunch where you can enjoy free flow champagne

I think the seafood was a little disappointing. The lobster meat was a little chewy, oysters were normal. The only saving grace was the prawn which was really sweet

Lobster Bisque

This was pretty decent. It had every flavour of the lobster in it

The truffle mushroom soup on the other end did not live up to expectations

Mee Siam

I am very sure the chef did not cook the noodles at all. Apart from that, the broth had a contrast of sweet and sour which was appetizing

Foie Gras topped with Passion Fruit Sauce

Foie Gras here is definitely not the best grade, but if you are not that picky, you might just go for a few rounds to make your money worth

Lobster risotto

It tastes exactly like the bisque, just that in solid form

Black Pepper Crayfish, the table’s favourite

Desserts

The only worth remembering was the lime tart which hit the right note

And more desserts. We really love the chocolate cake. It was so delicious

And the matcha fondue desserts which the girls dipped anything and everything in and made us guess what it was. I thought the matcha was too sweet. I will vote for dark chocolate fondue anytime

And a complimentary cake for the birthday girls

It is impossible to eat everything at a buffet and not feel full thereafter. Thankfully we have everyone to share the food with us. The thing about buffet is there are always hit and misses. Lime is not bad, but it is not the best around either. But for the kind of spread they offer, I think it is one of the decent ones around.
