A Lovely Sunday Lunch at Isola, IFC, Central, Hong Kong

Lunch at Isola
I am a huge fan of all-you-can-eat meals.
You can totally see it from my (super) size ^_^'
...and also the way I grabbed anything and everything and pile 'em up on my plate ala the above photograph.

The goodies are from Isola's antipasto buffet, mostly delicious.

Here's the bread basket, which wasn't served with olive oil and balsamic vinegar automatically (you have to ask for it).

Not bad, but nothing extraordinary.

...and here's my favorite from the spread, the ox tongue.

Tender and super flavorful.

The main courses get served once you've finished with your appetizer. But if you're like me (keep hovering around the buffet line), you could request for your main course to be served as you continue to have your appetizer.

The steak's tender, juicy and flavorful. Yummy!

I don't normally order pasta as a side dish, but I have a certain weakness for tagliatelle, and this one is delicious!

Perfectly cooked pasta + tasty ragout meat sauce = winner!

...I went crazy at the dessert station.
Lunch at Isola
Most exceeded my (reasonably low?) expectations. My favorites were the chocolate tart and chocolate eclair.

If I told you that I don't like chocolate, would you believe me?
Good. You shouldn't ^_^

Consume the sweets with a cup of good coffee...

...what a great Sunday!

The lunch costs HK$298 + service charge per person, includes bread basket, antipasto buffet or salad or soup, main course, dessert buffet, plus coffee or tea...and it's worth it.

Wow! What a spread! I will have a ball at this buffet too if I were there! I, too have a weakness for tagliatelle! And the best I have had must be the fresh homemade ones my friend did. Oh yum yum!

I wouldn't associate you with the term 'big' in anyway! You're a petite and cute little lady :D

This place looks better than I'd expected, might need to give it a try soon! Or Angelini's, I've never been to there for some reason.

The $7xx brunch buffet I had at Nicholini's wasn't very good! GOLD was ok in comparison, rather than exceptional. :S
