Street Smart

If you’re anything like me, you will DIE when you read the rest of this post. The Lobby Lounge at the JW Marriott in Admiralty is hosting an Asian Street Food Tapas buffet from this Friday until the end of August, every Friday and Saturday evening from 8pm onwards. The Marriott tea and tapas buffets have always been a favourite; buffets should always be about small portions and wide varieties, in tandem. I was at the tea buffet a couple of weeks ago and we scarfed down so much food, I was regretting it for the next two days.

But stomachs bounce back, and so I’m set to challenge the Asian Street Food Tapas buffet this Saturday night. Street food is a pretty integral part of Asian culture, and let’s face it, is usually the best and juiciest stuff ever. And authenticity is guaranteed, because the chefs actually traveled to Bangkok, Singapore, Kuala Lumpur and Ho Chi Minh City to discover the hidden gems in the alleyways of each city. They documented their travels on a blog, Wok this Way, and if that isn’t enough to get you salivating like a fluffy puppy on a summer day, then I don’t know what will. See you there Saturday!

The JW Marriott is at Pacific Place, 88 Queensway, Hong Kong. Tel: 852 2841 3846.

ETA!!!! Just called to book and the buffet has been postponed until NEXT WEEK. So hold your horses on this one!
