CST160616-0001

When it comes to western food, Modesto Bistro & Grill has certainly made a name for themselves for their delicious food over the years.  This Ramadhan, they are offering all their best and crowd-favourite dishes in their Sungkai Buffet, and that is not all!  They are also partnering with their sister restaurants to provide you with as much variety of food, more than enough for your picking.

Lof Bakery for their tasty cakes and pastries, TwinklePan for their delicious pretzels, Dapur Penyet for their Indonesian recipes  and Hippo & Bees for their famous Korean ice-cream, all available in Modesto’s Sungkai Buffet this year.

Situated at Batu Bersurat, same block as Shabulicious and a few rows behind Happy Star, Modesto Bistro &  Grill is equipped with modern & colourful luxury seats and tables that are arranged with generous spacing and plenty of room to ensure their patrons has a comfortable time during their dine-in.

Modesto’s Sungkai spread is very well organized.  There’s a section for the appetizers and main courses, another section for the bread and buns together with the fruits, another ‘hot’ section that serves the carvings such as the roasted chicken and lamb as well as the pasta and another section for all the different types of desserts you could ever want.

I took many pictures during the buffet, too many that I cannot include them all in this post.  To view all the pictures, have a look at my FB’s album here:

THE APPETIZERS

Here are the appetizers that were available that day.  My favourite is the Mini Pizza Cowboy and the Baked Mussels.  The Salsa and Chips were also a nice addition to the appetizers.

THE MAIN COURSE

I found myself ‘attacking’ the main course most of the time compared to the other sections.  I suppose I’m a meat eater hence this was my favourite section of all, and my favourite dish here was the Grilled Lamb Chops!  I have always been a lover of lamb chops, so naturally this is my favourite.  Baked Salmon is also my favourite here!

THE CARVING & PASTA SECTION

The carving section offered their Roasted Lamb Leg and Roasted Chicken, both of which is undeniably delicious.  I noticed that pasta section was also ‘hot’ among the crowd.  The chef was preparing making the dishes ‘made-to-order’ to ensure the pasta dish is served to you while its fresh and hot!

THE DESSERTS

Most buffets that I have been to usually offers plenty of main course dishes, but does not provide a similar abundance in choices for their desserts.  At Modesto’s Sungkai Buffet, you will be spoilt for choice even at their desserts section; from old fashioned traditional cakes all the way to the modern cakes.  Modesto is also reviving the old-school cakes which was the favourites during the yesteryears.
