My Favorite Buffet in Hong Kong

This is my go-to place for buffet. 

It's the Place - it's in Langham Place Hotel, a lovely hotel right in the heart of... wait for it... MONGKOK. 
Hello Langham Place, Argyle Centre phase I and II, Sino Plaza, GAP, HnM, Monki, Cotton On... all my places of worship. 
Ahem #shopaholic.

When my sis is in town, or when I have a weekday off to have a nice shopaholic day with girlfriends and we're in the mood to ruin our diets, or when SC and I have a special occasion to celebrate & eat our faces off but we don't wanna spend more than 1k per person, this is the perfect place. It was even more awesome before OB turned 3, as he got to stuff himself with desserts for free. Heheheh.

I love their variety of food.
First of all, hello, seafood.

Hello, fresh oysters.
Say a quick "Hi!" to the matcha fountain, we'll get back to him later.
Sushi and sashimi station. Oh, by the way, they're having a Japanese Special until 30 September 2015.
My darling seasoned carbohydrate, you're in trouble. The low carb diet is OFF tonight.
I ordered a sea urchin hand roll, and it's filled down to the bottom with sweet, silky, creamy UNI!
Oh, and to OB's absolute delight, every night at 8:00 pm, their Japanese Chef de Cuisine Manabu Oikawa does a salmon carving show.
Time for some salad.
And by "salad", I meant...
a little bit of greens with lots of smoked salmon and dressings... and bacon bits.

Time to hit the hot food station.
Nice decor eh? They just redecorated, feels a lot more young and modern now. 
Let's hit the Chinese food station.
Don't skip the double boiled soup. It comes from Ming Court, absolutely delicious.
And don't miss their roast meat. Again, from Ming Court.
The international food station has wagyu beef chunks, kurobuta pork chops, seafood paella, Indian curries. So many choices, so little stomach space!
Oh, I spotted many kids that night. The place is child friendly, it has nice high chairs, provide kids utensils and the staff are lovely with the kids.
Here's my little dude learning how to peel prawns by himself.
Next, be still my heart.
SC kept telling me that these are worth many many dance classes...
But I couldn't help but have a couple of these babies.
And before we move on to desserts...say cheese!
Obviously, my boys won't wait for me eating and photographing my food.
Mama, what took you so long??
My, oh my! No wonder they didn't wanna wait for me.
I kept saying that I am not a dessert person. 
But I really love ending my meals with something sweet.
Everybody loves watching baked Alaska getting lit up.

Black sesame cheesecake! I love it.
If I ever had to look for OB, he must be somewhere around this Movenpick land.
Ah ha! There he is. His idea of gourmet dessert. It involves gummy bears.
My happy ending. ALL CHOCOLATE, come to mama!
Pretty cool selection of drinks (not incl in the buffet price). OB love the sweet apple juice (ooops, not pictured here)
Now I need to go shopping to burn off the calories.
So worth it tho.

Friday night family date! ❤️❤️❤️
Thank you for inviting us, Langham Place Hotel.
We had a great time and we'll be back!

I'm a sucker for buffets- I went to this one about 3 or 4 years ago and I don't remember it being anywhere near as good as this!! Definitely need to give it a try again next time I'm in HK! Did you come here during dinner?

As Von said, back few years ago we went and wasn´t that impressive but maybe is time to go back. Talking about other buffets I have tried, I think the one at Royal Plaza Hotel in MK East station is quite worth it. Maybe you can give a try next time :)
