Great buffet with a lovely view of Hong Kong

ip cafe (Western District)

Thanks to Garycwm and Island Pacific Hotel for inviting me to try their buffet and a la carte dishes.

I loved the view from the Western side of Hong Kong.

These were the a la carte items and buffet items I tried.
Chicken/ Beef/ Pork Satay (half dozen) $98:

The satays were lovely and tender accompanied by delicious pineapple sauce.
Hainanese Chicken (Half) $98:

The chicken was tender and soft.
Roasted Smoked Pork Knuckle with sauerkraut, mashed potato and seasonal vegetables $178:

The pork knuckle was the best, especially the crispy skin.
The pork was flavoured just right and not too salty.
Pan-fried vanilla brioche with Haagen-Daz Strawberry Ice-cream:

The brioche was nice and soft, it reminded me of a loaf shaped canele.
The sweetness was just right and it was lovely and moist inside.
It paired nicely with the lovely tart berries.

The buffet had a good variety of choices including my favourite cauliflower and cheese, and the cheese selection was good too.

Here was part of what I tried that day and the cauliflower cheese was gorgeous.

For drinks they had about five different types of teas.
Vanilla cake:

I really liked this cake because the cream was natural and unsweetened, it was real freshly whipped cream.
The sponge was soft and not too sweet with lots of vanilla seeds in it.
