With special thanks to my brother & Accor, Zen and I enjoyed a free scrumptious seafood buffet at the Baygarden restaurant. On a Saturday night dinner, this was worth $62 per person! Novotel Brighton Beach offers panaromic views of the airport and seaside. The restaurant captures this stunning environment with outdoor seating and a tropical interior design.
Desserts included mini fruit flans, a very luxurious sticky date pudding, mini orange and chocolate cakes, tiramisu, carrot cake, fruit salad, bread & butter pudding and lots of other tiny delicate things.
Mini Fruit Flan
The Sticky Date Pudding was smothered in a rich butterscotch sauce. The sweetness was indulging and every bite was so moist. Yum…
Mini Orange and Chocolate Cakes
Another Chocolate Cake
This was my plate of dessert, which featured the fruit salad, carrot cake, tiramisu and a yummy sticky date pudding.
Roast Pumpkin and Olives with Rosemary… lovely when dipped with the freshly baked sourdough loaf.
Stir-Fried King Prawns
The seafood section consisted of smoked blue lip mussels, smoken salmon with capers, Nambucca oysters, balmain bugs, king prawns & blue swimmer crabs.
A refreshing salad of rockmelon and mixed seafood.
Selections of cold meats and terrines.
The hot food was slighly disappointing. It was made up of farfelle pasta with blue cheese sauce, grilled chicken thigh with red wine sauce, roast potatoes which were cold and dry, roast pork, char-grilled vegetables and others.
However, who can complain of a free meal? The salad offering and endless flow of fresh seafood was overwhelming… luckily I had come prepared with a larger-fit shirt which hid the extra bulge 🙂
Thanks again Roland… and happy birthday Zen.
