Tung Lok Seafood Buffet 同乐海鲜 @ Orchard Central

Celebrated Dad's 50th birthday at Tung Lok Seafood weekend ala carte lunch buffet. Ala carte buffet is basically where you get to order as many dishes as you like from the menu. Tung Lok was the perfect place as Mum loves buffet and Dad loves the Chinese zi char style dishes. Overall each dish was pretty well executed; for a buffet, the quality of food matches or even exceeds normal restaurant standard.

Top 3 must try/spam dishes:

Menu- Photos for dishes I tried and I've highlighted must try dishes.
中国茶Chinese Tea $2.00 per person 
- Tea is good, helps in digestion so that we can eat more :)
小菜Pickles $3.00 per plate 
- More like the green peas they served at the start. Return this to the kitchen! Don't get tricked into paying $3 extra like us :(

餐前小吃 Cold Cuts and Appetisers

Salmon Sashimi三文鱼刺身 /Salmon Sashimi (Must try) Fresh, thick and chewy. One plate should worth at least $20 in cold storage so it's quite easy to eat back your money's worth.

Fried Beancurd

三岜炒粒粒 / Fried Beancurd Cube with French Beans and Silver Bait in Sambal Sauce - Normal

Friend beef with onions

豉椒牛肉片 / Sautéed Sliced Beef with Black Bean Sauce (Must Try!) Really chewy and tender beefs slices, a bit salty to eat without rice though. But as you know, buffet is no place for rice.
