Sakura International Buffet Restaurant, Shaw Plaza Twin Heights

My busy friend have to juggle between her business, family and me during my visit to Singapore. Under special circumstances, I am invited to her mom's birthday dinner. It is really such an awkward situation for me. Well, maybe my face thick enough and here I am at Sakura International Buffet Restaurant at Shaw Plaza. LOL.

You can see their buffet pricing by the side. It is consider very cheap to have a buffet dinner @S$25++ only!!!
The line of sushi and sashimi. Their maguro (tuna) is not really fresh but others are good.
More sushi!
Noodles in oriental style.
Some local foods such as fried rice, singapore meehoon, rendang and etc.
Chinese Dim Sum
12 different flavors of ice cream available.

Fruits and yogurts.
Cakes and desserts.
Their California Roll is quite unique compare to all Japanese Buffet I had so far. The uniqueness is the seaweed wrap is wrapped in a plastic separate from the rice. This is to ensure the rice does not make the seaweed become stale. So you need to use your "talent" to take off the plastic and wrap the rice back with the seaweed. Not that easy as you think., I can assure you.
Haha...a failure end product. However, the California Roll has remained its freshness.
Time for the cake!
Let me take an unforgettable family photo. 
This place is pretty crowded. It is advised to book earlier and avoid walk-in at all cost. You just have to admit this is the only cheapest with good food Japanese Buffet Restaurant available in Singapore. Please do not try to convert back to Malaysia Ringgit. Of course, you can get a better Japanese Buffet if you dine in Malaysia after conversion.

Tamarind Springs @ Jalan TAR, Ampang

Outlook: 3/5
Creativity: 5/5
Taste: 4/5
Price: 2/5
Overall: 3/5 - It is also known as their signature Symphony of Starters, which takes you across the breadth of Indochinese cuisine with Vietnamese shrimp crystal rolls, lemongrass prawns, Cambodian-style deep-fried shrimp cakes and minced chicken on cinnamon sticks. All served with a variety of piquant sauces. The plate is just nice for 2 pax but the price is too expensive for that small portion.

Outlook: 3/5 Creativity: 5/5 Taste: 4/5 Price: 3/5 Overall: 3/5 - If you think that coconut soup should be a milky soup, then you are wrong. This is a chicken tomyam clear soup with coconut meat in it. Very delicious and creative way to make it. The coconut meat is the highlight of the entire soup. It just gave the soup an extra coconut fragrance in it and of course, they are edible. Do not worry, the soup is not too spicy.

Magnum Cafe @IOI City Mall, Putrajaya

Outlook: 5/5
Creativity: 5/5
Taste: 4/5
Price: 2/5
Overall: 4/5 - It contains of cashew meringue, Mascarpone cream, honey balsamic cream served with white chocolate dipped vanilla Magnum topped with freeze dried raspberries and fresh strawberries. My suggestion is to mix them all together including the ice cream itself otherwise by eating the ice cream alone will be too sweet. Once you mixed them all together, the magic comes. The sensational taste of creamy, crunchy, a little sourish kick and sweetness combining all together to create a wonderful ice cream dessert. Definitely is a must order dessert when you are there.
