Zipangu Japanese Restaurant (Buffet) @Shangri-La Hotel KL

I have covered this restaurant in my previous post which was more into ala-carte meal. Right now I will bring you to their buffet style. RM96.00++ (adult) and half price for the child rate. I am holding a Prestige card which i will get 50% discount from the listed price. However, the Prestige Card no longer available after this year. They already replacing it with the Golden Circle Membership.
The salad bar and I had a lot of edamame here. My favorite bite!
Sushi counter on the right and the left is the teppanyaki. Their sushi and sashimi line were great but I am really disappointed with their lack of varieties at the teppanyaki counter. I am expecting more seafood selection. 
In the end, what worth your money is to take more from the sushi bar rather than others because you can eat more sashimi rather than those fried and rice stuffs.
This is the dessert line which I find it pretty weird because I do not find their ice cream. After consulted with a waitress, only I understood that it has to be ordered from them. So you are not allowed to scoop yourself. Weird and first time to see this. Not really sure the true meaning behind it. Anyway, the ice cream selections are Vanilla, Chocolate and Green Tea.
Their sushi is truly excellent. Sometimes people will said the food quality from the buffet and ala-carte are different. However, I do not find it so in this restaurant after I have tried both.
Sashimi as well! Basic salmon, toro, shiro toro and mackerel to choose. I like all of them.
But nothing to compare with their delicious oyster. So fresh! If you are having half a dozen of it through ala-carte already cost you around RM6.00/each. I easily finished up 12 pieces and I can have more easily. That is why I hate having a buffet because we tend to eat more than we could. 
Overall, I highly recommended this restaurant's buffet especially after the 50% discount but even without it, I do believe they are more worth if to compare with the likes of Jogoya and Gonbei-San which are not fresh at all! The important part of a Japanese buffet is to make sure the food served are fresh!

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.

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.
