It was Seafood Mania on Friday so we were greeted with huge selection of seafood from Alaskan Crab, Mud Crab, Boston Lobster, fresh prawns, mussels and clams including a solo station of fresh oysters from Australia. On the hot stations you will be further spoiled for seafood in many ways from Asian cuisine to western.
And this is my first station- DIY Rojak yum! I don't usually order rojak cause they are not too healthy so I always attack them when I dine at Hotel Jen!
I made kueh pie tee for the fam! You can tell that I really love the DIY stations!
Just 1 flight of stairs down to roasted happiness! Never have to decide chicken, duck, roast pork or char siew cause we can have a little of everything here!
Love picking his own choice of noodles for his laksa!
There was freshly grilled satay oh yum!
Situation back at the table! At the corner is Egg oyster omelette! This is my first time having it at Hotel Jen, please keep that on the buffet line! It's really good! The batch I got was the best, fried brown but Zonia and my mom had the next batch which was whiter, remember to tell chef to fry it longer if you like it a little more charred like how I enjoy mine!
The laksa is good! The 3 men at the table had 1 bowl each and they whipped it clean!
If I had belly space, I would have gotten 1 with mee kia which was recommended by Juliana, she said it was extra good with the laksa gravy! Next time, Ju!! I will come back for it!
Kept the tummy for desserts. Always impressed with the desserts line! It was Jason's first time at J65 and he was amazed with the variety of desserts! He even thought it was a Friday Desserts Special, but no, Jason, every day the desserts line look this wonderful!
I had walked to the desserts line to check out the desserts before I even started dinner and was looking forward to Durian Pengat!! I love my durian!
The first bowl I had was a little too watery and sweet but I decided to give the second durian pengat batch another try and omg, it was thicker, rich and slightly bitter! So I had 2 bowls!
Everyone's favorite soft pandan chiffon cake!
Potong ice cream in cute little cups! Not guilty for having more than 1 since it's so small!
Love this dessert presentation! There's a mixture of mousse and jelly desserts in these jars. Love and I shared the black one which was actually Herbal Jelly!
