There are mainly 2 type of buffet in the market; one that have a spread out of all the dishes at the buffet counters whereas the other one is the ala-carte. Being a buffet junkie, where you want to taste everything, I personally prefer the ala carte buffet where you can order dish by dish. This way it is more relax and you really can taste out the dishes individually at your own pace.
And the final dish under this section is the AYU – Smelt Fish – This is a very small fish which is spread with salt and baked. To eat this ,we have to de-skin the fish and there is very little meat in it, but the excellent sweet taste of the fish was very worth the effort to dissect it.
Moving on the next section is the ITAMEMONO – we had the SAKE HAMAGURI – which is Stir Fried Clams With Japanese Rice Wine. According to chef, this is a very easy dish to prepare. You stir fried with garlic and butter and when it is almost cooked, you put in the SAKE to add the wine aroma and taste to this soupy dish. We finish all the soup till the last drop.
Our last section, is the KUSHIYAKI; we had the TEBASAKI – Chicken Wing yakitori. It is using salt to spread and sent to the griller. We like it as it is not too salty. Just nice with the crisp skin and succulent meat. Compared to the others Chicken wing yakitori that we had at other restaurant which usually only served 2 pieces of winglet on one skewers (authentic version), Here at Tao, it it the deboned drumet and winglet.
Next is the IDAKO – Baby Octopus.The marinated baby octopus are grilled to a nice charred while its juicy and bouncy texture of the octopus make it a delight to be eaten. If only we had more stomach, I will re-order this dish again.
Our final dish is the EBI which is grilled prawn. Grilled to a nice charred taste with the sweet and salty meat texture that was used to sprinkle on the prawn while grilling.
For this Christmas, Tao Chef have prepared a dish that will be served only on Christmas day which is Crispy Fried Chicken With 5 Flavour sauce. You only get to sample this dish on that day.
There are a few more section in the menu that we don’t even have anymore stomach space to put into any more. Even each section that we tried, it was only one or 2 dishes only and mind you there are also some delicacies on the buffet counter, appetizers and desserts that we literally cannot even eat at all. For the price that you pay for this all you can eat ala carte buffet; you really get the best value possible.
