Do you know that Tung Lok Seafood has a wonderful ala carte buffet promotion at Orchard Central?

The daily ala carte lunch and dinner buffets at Tung Lok Seafood restaurant offer 40 dishes available for repeat orders, including seafood, meats, Japanese cold cuts and sashimi, rice and noodles, and desserts. During dinner, each buffet diner also gets a serving of chilli crab and shark’s fin soup (I am not sure if these are also available at lunch).

The price is pretty decent for the quality of the food served and the unlimited orders allowed. You are charged for the Chinese tea and pickles (feel free to say no to having these), which is pretty much the norm for most Chinese and seafood restaurants.

Here, I will highlight my personal picks. The drunken prawns is definitely one of the best dishes of the night. The prawns are large and juicy, but the real star of the show is the herbal soup, which is perfectly clear and light in colour but intensely tasty. You would want a repeat order of this.

Also worth a mention is the crispy fish skin with salted egg yolk. It may sound icky, but it makes a delightful snack – like chips!
