Family International Buffet

So what do you do when you have a dinner date? You starve yourself from not eating lunch coz you thought you want to stuff yourself at dinner! Hehe .. and that was what I did!

Sis in law mentioned last Sunday that she wanted to give DH and I a treat! Hmm .. forgot to ask for what reason really .. :-)

Anyways, the dinner date was today. Dinner was at Family International Buffet on the 3rd level of Tampines Mall. It was a double date - sil and her husband and me and DH .. gosh, how long before had I gone on a date?!?!

It has quite a good spread .. better than Sakura International .. my personal thought yah .. and the place is also much better .. more organised and cleaner too.

So I started my meal as usual with a cup of soup .. sharksfin soup to be exact ..

Then I had a plate of tuna and salmon sashimi .. oohh how i love raw salmon .. yummy .. sushi, seaweed and oyster .. oohlala ..each and everything on this plate .. I loikeeeeee!!

Then we stopped for some cam whoring .. that's Kak Lily and me

We then continued eating, and this time, I had a plate of Dim Sum .. some buns, siew mai and lor mai kai ..

Then I had beef steak but dang the meat was overly rare so I couldnt stomach that .. give me raw salmon or oyster ANYTIME but not rare steak .. I just cant .. I didnt bother to take picture of that dish!

Next I chowed down black pepper crab, garlic scallop and steamed fish ..

There were an array of other food which I skipped. I totally skipped the salad section, the fried food section and more ..

See .. the thing about me is I look fat or rather I AM FAT but the tummy could only take that much! So I was done with the food and settled for fruits ..

and a little mousse cake ..

and what better way to finish a hearty meal with a cup of mocha ..

Oh .. how divine .. I was full to the brim .. if I were a balloon, I would have burst! .. hehe

Thank you Kak Lily for the treat. Thanks for bringing us to this buffet place with a sumptuous spread :-P

OH DAMN!! .. I didnt even take the ice cream .. how could I have missed that?!?!?!

i've been to family international buffet at tampines mall, good array of food but rather pricey for dinner. better to go during lunch but dont go weekend. should have a wider selection of dessert, though.

hi liezawati - thanks for your being here at m3rni3. i am actually a sucker for desserts but yesterday i was too full i didnt even see wat desserts they have. those mousse cakes are what my sis in law took and i took a piece from her.

thanks for the advice on never to go on a weekend .. :-)

I wish not acquiesce in on it. I think precise post. Particularly the designation attracted me to read the whole story.
