I was then given a treat at Jurong point, decided to have the 1hr buffet at Kuishin bo.

Kuishin Bo Jurong Point
Address: Jurong Point shopping centre, #B1-47/51
1 Jurong West Central 2 Spore 648886
Opening hours:
Lunch 11.30am to 3pm
Dinner 5.30pm to 10pm
Contact no: 6792 9286


There's quite a variety of food. Fried food, soup, oden, porridge, noodles, seafood, sushi, sashimi, dessert. The food were so-so. However, for the price I think it's pretty good already.
I think 1 hour is also quite sufficient la, could be a little rush for some people though.



 
 
Quite a lot of empty seats
 

soba.
 

 

Sushi corner.
 

Seafood.
 

 
 
 

Oden
 

 

Fried food. Were a little cold already.
 

 

Fruits and salad.
 

 

 

 

 

 
 
 

Overall, the fried food were a little cold already. The fried mixed veg was a little oily.
The pancake was not bad.
 

Stirred fried food.
Overall taste ok.
 

Chawanmushi...
 

Ginseng porridge. My colleague loves it a lot.
I felt the ginseng fragrance was kinda strong for me.
 

Sashimi...
 

 
 
Dessert time.
 

Took just a bite for every item there. Cos too sweeeeeet

I like Mont blanc cake. It's sweetened chestnuts topped with whipped cream supposingly.
The name comes from Mont blanc, as it resembles a snow-capped mountain.
 
However, this one isn't that yummy.
 
 
 

Overall, I would say it's still pretty worthwhile for the 1hr buffet hor, cos its quite affordable and you get to eat a variety of food. But I wouldn't pay for the actual lunch buffet $36.90++.
 
 
 
That's all about it.
 
 
Stay tuned for Part 5!

My 27th Bday celebration Part 3 @IMM HaiDiLao with M.E.A.T IMM, 2 Jurong East 21 Singapore 609601

My 27th Bday celebration Part 3 @IMM HaiDiLao with M.E.A.T


Hai Di Lao at IMM
Address: IMM, 2 Jurong East 21 Spore 609601
Opening hours: 10am to 4pm
 

When I'm out with this gang, it's always Haidilao. I think I should be their VIP member or something.

And since they just opened a new branch at IMM, we decided to head there instead. Since it's nearer from our workplace, also it's more convenient for us to get home after that.


I reached IMM around 540pm. And I decided to go get some of my personal stuffs first then go get the Queue no, and I regretted. I should have gotten the Queue number first, then go to get my stuffs. I didn't expect to see a huge crowd since its at IMM and on weekday? I thought we could walk in right away and I thought after getting the Queue number, I'll have to sit there and wait. Alamak. So, I got my queue number around 6.10pm, and only manage to get in around 8pm! Almost a 2hrs wait man. Seriously, I have been to Haidilao so many times, I never have to wait.


Anyway, you are only able to make reservations before 6pm. After 6pm, you will have to walk in and get a queue number. So, why is this HaiDiLao so popular and always having a long queue?


The first time I went to the first outlet at Clark Quay. I was pretty amazed by the service. Food wise also quite ok. But it's really not cheap ya. It's not buffet, it's ala carte. Be prepared to pay about $50 per pax. Regardless of how expensive it is, there's still a lot of people patronizing.


What kinda service do they provide?

While waiting in the queue, you still get to sit, drink and have snack. Not just that, they provide some mini games too, like chess, aeroplane chess, folding of cranes? lol.

You also get to do your MANICURE for FREE. And it's not like some simple express ones. They are pretty professional, they trim your nails, cut the cuticles, coating, etc.

There's also a children corner where you can put your kids there to play. However, I wouldn't though. Haha.

When you gotten your seat, they will first provide hot towels. They provide a plastic ziplock bag for your phone. If you have long hair, they provide a hair tie band. After eating, you may ask for toothbrush too if you need.

They will change your messy dirty plates for you. They can make the special sauce for you. They serve and attend to you throughout the dining.

You can make your own sauce. It's free flow.
It will include your bill of $4 per pax.
