If you are in Hong Kong today, tonight is your last chance to check out the Discover Peru buffet at Hotel Icon. Sorry for the late notice but we only went to lunch yesterday.
The Peruvian food was delicious, if you go, I highly recommend that you try the ceviche (Peruvian style sashimi) and the Peruvian Shrimp soup which was a highlight. As I went with the Peruvian group here, the dishes were especially authentic and the chef made up a little bit of extra ceviche for our table. Those corn pops (equivalent of beer nuts I’m told) were simply yummy.
Anyway, the Icon Hotel’s restaurant called the Market, has an extensive buffet selection with great presentation. The dessert counter was especially impressive with its nice decor, and of course a fascinating range of durian desserts which I have rarely come across in any hotel buffet.
Here are pictures of what’s available.
First up, durian puffs. I sent SW off to get some dessert and he came back all bright eyed as though he’d dug up some secret treasure. Inside, whole pieces of durian that would fit in the palm of your hand were wrapped in a rice flour and deep fried. Nice flavor but I couldn’t tell if it was MSW or really ripe Monthong.
Probably not the healthiest, but if you’re after healthy, you shouldn’t be anywhere near this counter.
Next up, the durian cheese cake. Lightly baked, this was a nice size to leave you with two bites.
Here’s a baked durian cheese morsel. I’m not a big fan of tarts so I didn’t try this but guess it;s a crunchy rendition of the cheesecake.
This is the durian panna cotta, nicely presented.
And finally the durian ice cream.
The ice cream was quite delicious. Full on cold MSW which was cold, creamy and pure durian. Even ZI loved it.
So if you have nothing on for dinner, maybe check out the restaurant at the ICON in East TST tonight.
