Take the red lobster claws seafood cracker and get cracking.
Step inside and find eight international buffet lines: Japanese and robatayaki corner is in the far left and away, so getting freshly cut sushi and sashimi first might be a good idea. You will also notice a few smaller Asian delights sections such as Thai salads but save your space for the Western seafood highlights.
Chilled and grilled seafoods lay around the signature Red Molteni Oven representing fine French craftsmanship. Chefs stand behind a counter prepping and cooking aromatic herbed mussels, creamed clams and two types of king prawns. Another indispensable shellfish is an array of all-you-can-eat shucked oysters: Fine de Claire, French Barron and Majestic. The best part though was the huge sweet, meaty lobster claw.
Feast on fresh raw goods from the sea straight or simply side the au gratin selections with sautéed greens and colourful mashed potatoes. Go beyond the basics by matching individual elements with different bases. Make a tangy, tender king crab salad. Wander bar to bar from the lineups of brown crab, blue crab, and snow crab, cold cuts, and crispy raw greens in jars. Among the various toppings were lemon dressing and seeds.
Don’t stop there, pasta lovers. A variety of dried pastas are available in at least two Italian seafood options. For health-conscious eaters, hover over to the organic vegetable and anti-ageing, detox, and energy-boosting smoothie station where you can find protein balls, coconut water, and fresh fruits. And don’t forget to ask for the all-inclusive freshly squeezed juices and drinks.
Apart from indoor seating, you can enjoy your meal on one of the few dining tables on the balcony with a spectacular view overlooking Lumphini Park and the smoky grill area that resembles a little beach barbecue.
End your meal with the signature chocolate lava by Chocolab’s Chef Da with house-made vanilla ice cream. Spare five minutes and order one that will be molten in the oven and served hot, ready to melt the creamy vanilla ice cream scooped on top.
