Saga beef buffet at Mr. Steak Buffet à la minute

When Mr Steak was at Paterson Street, I used to go there frequently.

It was quite good back then offering lots of beef options before the whole of HK got their hands on all sorts of beef.

There were oysters and a good choice of seafood but all these are basics of a buffet these days because lobsters and seafood are offered almost everywhere.

It started to deteriorate when more tables were added to the point they were almost touching each other so I haven’t been back since.

Now they have moved to the WTC, I decided to go again and see if it has changed.

The buffet area is evidently bigger offering lobsters and crabs.

They are currently serving SAGA BEEF and freshly grilled seafood.

According to the SAGA website, Saga beef is esteemed as one of the best Wagyu beef brands in Japan.

The cattle used for our meats are fattened in adherence to the regulations of the Japan Agriculture Co-operative, and we use only Japanese black cattle registered with their cattle traceability system. Japan Meat Grading Association rates is a 4 or above for meat quality and has a BMS of 7 or above, and their Saga-Wagyu beef is rated between 2 and 4 for meat quality and has a BMS of 6 or below.

There were other items such as Chinese soups, drinks bars, spinning salad bowl bar so it was quite good.

What I had:

Every night people can have their messages written on plates and surprise their friends/family etc.

Customer service was quite good that night because they collected used plates and gave you new napkins regularly and even offered to help you take photos.

Seafood Sunday brunch with music

Wake up to a good brunch with live music and seafood at ALIBI - Wine dine be social, CORDIS in Hong Kong.

There are plenty of freshly shucked Pacific rock oysters, poached prawns, New Zealand mussels, scallops and Canadian snow crab for those who love seafood.

On the Western selections, there are cold cuts, cheese, Raclette cheese, Live egg station and more.

Hot dishes include paella, slow roasted suckling pig, vegetable gratin and grilled prawns.

There was free flow of fruit juices, meji yoghurts and sweet treats:

Now to the food, I loved the scrambled eggs because you get to choose the ingredients and the Raclette cheese is always my favourite.

For mains, there is a choice of Wagyu beef, Lobster thermidor and lamb so we had different mains.
I thought lamb and beef were the best.

Finished with a Citrus flavoured souffle and Belgian waffle.

Indian vegetarian gem

I discovered this restaurant because I was in the area and I had to make a special trip here because the location is not exactly convenient.
I got the MTR to Homantin station thinking it was close but I was wrong.
Whampoa might be a better stop but you still have to walk.

At Sharmaji, they serve North and South Indian vegetarian food at affordable prices.

There were so many things I wanted to eat but in the end I went for the Noodles, Vegetable cutlet, Palak tikki and Pau bazi.

The vegetable cutlet and palak tikki were good but a bit too dry for my liking but it was good you can order by piece to try them out.

The Pau Bazi was buns with some curry and dips to complement it. It didn't look spicy but it was extremely spicy and you can taste more spices in this than other restaurants.

The fried noodles were a bit too soft but again super spicy.
Other dishes that I hope to try on my next visit if I am in the area.

 The bill amounted to HK$123 so it wasn't that expensive.
