Parkview International Buffet on www.bumres.com
At Parkview, I was a bit lost in translation with the culinary arrays from around the world. I didn’t know how to properly handle all the food while concerning about sparing some room in my stomach for the favorite Dim Sum at the Imperial China and the Sashimi at the Kacho Japanese. Finally I decided to go for the seafood section. I had a little bit of top choices; Alaskan king crab legs, NZ Mussels, oysters, shrimps, and salmon. These were fresh and tasty. Moreover, I had some foie gras, a bite of the eggs benedict, grilled lambs, and several bite size cocktail foods. All of them were alright; I didn’t fancy anything in particular. The desserts looked so good but I was confused. Should I do the sweets already? Worrying about the Dim Sum and the Sashimi, I still did it anyways; some fondue and some dessert in shot glasses. Great decision made there, they were delightful. Throughout the first round of Buffet at Parkview, we had the soft core live music playing while the spacious atmosphere was getting more crowded and lively.
Second round happened on the fourth floor, the Imperial China. This place was packed when I got there. Noisy and lively crowd wandering for buffets around the low ceiling restaurant with the dark wood tone furnishing, and random Chinese ornaments for some reason made the atmosphere very eclectic yet cozy. The shark’s fin soup was a great start. Then followed with several dumplings, roast duck, suckling pig, crispy egg rolls, back to dumplings, and more shark’s fin soup. Two types of shark’s fin soup were served; dark naturally thickened broth and light broth with edible bamboo scrubs. Both of them were amazing. I liked the dark one more; you definitely can’t miss the good value choice at Imperial China. A glass of red wine here and there; slightly tannic one was our choice. It kept the good vibe continuing with the afternoon food trek. I finished with a light traditional Chinese dessert, Gingko in warm coconut juice. A nice cup of hot chrysanthemum tea was also wonderful for the stomach at this point in time. I was ready for the next hop.
Up to the 37th floor for third round buffet at the Kacho, its tall spanning window offered a picturesque view of Bangkok’s cityscape. It was almost past the busy lunch time; the restaurant staffs still had the fresh refill coming out to the line buffet to keep the Bangkok’s Biggest Brunch crowd happy to the very last minute. Cold kitchen was the destination and we got a plate of sashimi assortment, typical choices; Salmon, Hamachi, Akami, Squid, and Saba. I liked the Salmon, Akami, and Saba, so I had them the second time around. Besides the Sashimi, various choices of beautifully rolled Maki were there for you to sample as well. The private room was perfect for our group. We even had the bell to call for service. Similar selection of wine was also available at Kacho. I also had some Tempura and Okonomiyaki. Both were made fresh when I had them; good choices. BBQ on skewers were great too. I was so full by this time. I wrapped up with some Japanese dessert; mochi in red bean and strawberry sorbet and green tea ice creams. It was a refreshing way to finish the eating spree for me and my friends. We thought about going back to Parkview for desserts but we had to give up, we realized that we already had enough food for the day, lol…
