Executive chef Mohamad Sharif said he had prepared a wider menu compared with the Father’s Day buffet last year where he focused mainly on serving Spanish cuisine.
“We have come up with a wider variety of international and local dishes for the buffet this year.
“We are going to add a few more dishes to the buffet, including enchiladas and tortillas with prawn and avacado.
“The public has also requested we served some paella dishes which I have included in the menu as well,” he added.
The two paella dishes that chef Mohamad has prepared are Paella Negra (made with squid ink) and Seafood Paella.
Apart from that, bruschetta, calzone pizza, salmon and maguro salad, and sausage and prawn salad will be served.
Chef Mohamad, who has been cooking for 35 years, felt that fathers would enjoy the grilled station the most which offers a healthier option.
Pastry chef Lim Chin Kheng has also prepared special pastries and cakes.
“We will serve assorted macaroons as well as Earl Grey Tea Mousse which I feel will appeal to fathers.
“There will also be 50 types of cakes, puddings and ice-creams including Triple Layer Chocolate Mousse, Red Velvet, Chocolate Fruit Cake as well as bread and butter pudding which is specially made with croissants.
Besides the buffet spread, a string of fun activities has been lined up for fathers.
