Culinary Journey - Bangkok (Part 2)
Thai people loves their buffet and so do I. Partly because of that, makes me love to come to this country. In Bangkok, I can say more that 50% of restaurants are serving buffet from sushi, BBQ to traditional Thai food. Range from a very cheap cheap buffet to the luxury and expensive one.
Today, we are in the mood for the luxury-type buffet, so we picked Lord Jim's in Mandarin Oriental Hotel in Bangkok. It costs ฿1,500 (about $53) per person with drink is not included. Sounds a bit too expensive for buffet in Asian country but you know what, it is worth it and the food is so much enjoyable. They use high quality produces, prepare them carefully, beautifully served on the plate and expect to get 5 star service here.

OMG!!! This foie gras is the best of the best foie gras that I've ever eaten for sure. The one that keeps tingling in my mind. Foie gras here is superb quality and they cook it with some kind of sweet sauce that goes really well with it. I think, I had about 10 pieces of these. To have this much of foie gras alone in Australia would cost me more than the buffet price in here put together. Worth it indeed!!!!
