Finally, we reach the end of our Shangri-la Hotel journey - The Lemon Garden Cafe. I've been to the cafe several times in the past, and they've never let me down before.

Salad Bar
 Let's start with some appetizers shall we!

Alaskan King Crab
OMG!! The crab legs were so so sweet! Although it was a little bit of work to de-shell them, but it was worth every effort!

Did not try this - so, no comment, but they looks super yummy though!

Fresh Oysters
Oysters!! Who doesn't love fresh oysters!!!! Squeeze some fresh lime, and my personal favourite - tabasco - and I'm ready to chow down couple of them!

My assorted cold appetizers
Scallop with Roe
I love scallops, but I love the roe even more! I was jumping up and down (inside my heart...) when I saw this on the cold dishes counter. The scallops were sweet too!

Next, let's move to some warm appetizers! And yes....I actually prefer appetizers in a buffet line...LOL!!!

Crab Cake

Shrimp with Capers
Whoever read my previous posts, would know that I'm totally a big fan of capers!!!!

Smoked Duck Breast with Plum Sauce
 A dish that I'll definitely looked for whenever I'm at the cafe - Smoked Duck Breast with Plum Sauce.

Monk Fish with Mango Salsa

Now, some Japanese!

Cold Soba
 The soba was so-so. Didn't quite like the texture of the noodles.

Salmon Sashimi, Octopus Sashimi (Top), Fresh Prawn Sushi
 I couldn't help but to attack the shrimp when I saw them. I guess I love my food to be raw! LOL!!!

They have other choices as Indian cuisine:

Not a fan of all these spices? Fred not! They have some familiar Chinese cuisine for you to choose from too:

Duck Wrap with Plum Sauce
I did not managed to capture more photos of the buffet line and remaining food - there were too many people that night. So, these are what I was able to capture, and I wish I could have took more photos:

Beef with Brown Sauce
The beef was a bit too dry. Most probably from sitting under the light for too long.

Ice Cream with Chocolate Sauce and Chocolate Chips

P/S: Pardon me for not putting up the costs for this post, as we used our Prestige Membership card and hotel vouchers - so forgot to check out the full amount of the dinner buffet.
