Local Lunch Buffet at J65 (1A Cuscaden Rd, Level 1, Hotel Jen Tanglin, Singapore 249716) Reservation: 6831 4374

It's such a hassle to make reservation through phone - Book now through Chope for Instant Reservations!

Visited on 17 Sep 2016 (Sat). For some of you who do not know about J65, this restaurant has actually replaced the very popular former Cafebiz at Traders Hotel. They have renamed to J65 at Hotel Jen Tanglin. J stands for Jen, while 65 stands for our Singapore country code. Haha!

Tiramisu is always a crowd pleaser at every buffet. We were really lucky to see this cake as it was quite rare to see Tiramisu cake at J65. This cake was moist and super soft! Are you as lucky as me to see this cake when you're there too?

Grass Jelly Soy Bean Milk
Sad that this grass jelly totally not sweet. 

Kueh Lapis

Sometimes when they run out of that fruit juice, they will change to another fruit juice. On that day, when the pineapple juice has finished, they topped up with Orange Juice! :)

Coffee / Tea / Hot Chocolate Station

This was my first time to see this premium tea brand called "Zesta Connoisseur Collection"  at hotel buffet, with 6 selections that day (English Breakfast, Green Tea, Earl Grey, Peach, Darjeeling & Peppermint).

It was rare to see Hot Chocolate provided at hotel buffet! Wow, diners here are really spoilt for choices!!!

Cappuccino! Hmm.. Too much milk and foam

Overall Impression: The service here was quite good, the staff will come to clear the plates regularly. Though the food here is not that fantastic, but for lunch buffet at $31++ per person with wide variety of beverages including hot chocolate, ice tea and fruit juice, wide variety of nice desserts and decent food quality, this is still a very Value For Money Buffet! 

Hotel ambience + 4 star hotel service + wide variety food and nice dessert selection, go where to find leh????? :-)
