Japanese Buffet @ Cafe Majestic, Crown Plaza

jbuf crown plaza

Crown Plaza has a Japanese BBQ Buffet at the resident Cafe Majestic every Saturday from 8:30 pm – 10:30 pm. It is a long running promotion with a sushi and sashimi bar, a Japanese food buffet spread and desserts inspired by The Empire of the Rising Sun.

The promotional literature goes “Indulge in a seemingly infinite supply of sushi, an array of salads, and a host of delightful hot dishes including barbecue favorites to a variety of tempting international desserts and authentic Japanese beverages.”

I went for the Japanese buffet at 9:30 pm with Cherie and started filling our plates (an hour before the buffet ends). Irene joined us soon after that and I think she was surprised at our healthy appetites. πŸ˜‰

jbuf sushi bar

The first stop was the sushi / sashimi bar which also serves California Rolls and maki. There were also fresh salmon, tuna and octopus to be made into sashimi.

The sashimi chef did some slicing and dicing and we got a rather large platter of sashimi (raw fresh seafood).

Make us some sushi, Scotty!

…and while you’re at it, do California Rolls as well.

This is our platter of sashimi which I thought was worth the RM 55++ per person buffet admission price by itself.

jbuf ebiko

Cherie is a big fan of ebiko – the stuff is fun to eat while *cough* as I’ve come to realize. It kinda pops in your mouth.

jbuf prawns

She also puts prawns and rolls them in ebiko, and that is equally fun to eat. It becomes an explosion of prawn, sweet mayonnaise and ebiko crunching…very interesting texture.

There was a lot of other stuff in the buffet table (which is separate from the sushi bar) – off the top of my head, there were Chawan Mushi, Kani Karage (fried soft crab – pictured above), gyoza, tempura, udon noodles, miso soup (obviously) and cha soba served in small, individual bowls.

jbuf massacre

It was a massacre! I think we took more than we were able to eat. πŸ˜‰
