Quick Eats: Corniche, Diamond Hotel

I attended a seminar recently and lunch was at Corniche, Diamond Hotel’s restaurant. Though I barely eat anything new in any buffet assortment, I love being able to try out the different hotels and their food simply because I don’t know what I will discover. I do gravitate towards the same foods that I like. But i think that is normal.

Though the range of Corniche is not as broad as other hotels I have eaten at, it please me quite a bit. I have a few disappointing meals, but a few curious ones as well. The runaway hits were their cheesecake ice cream, serving crocodile and kangaroo meat in the buffet, their salami, baked salmon with dill sauce and the ebi maki. The stuff I’d rather not eat were those in the slicing area which was roast pork, and roast beef. The roast beef wasn’t bad. It was rare, but I prefer a juicier one. And the pork was dry altogether that I was so disappointed in it.

The good thing was I enjoyed more than those I disliked. But the thing is, the roasted areas, I assume, should be a highlight in any buffet. But this one was all just pitiful. Unless you are a die hard fan of roast beef and pork, you will love this buffet anyway. And at a steal of about P1700, this is like less than half the price of my favorite hotel buffet 😛
