Deluxcious All You Can Eat Lunch Buffet

Deluxious which has long been synonymous to its ‘spa cuisine’ has now spread its wings and is now a boutique hotel cum spa and restaurant. It took over the colonial bungalow next door and transformed it into a charming 18-room boutique hotel.

Its newly refurbished restaurant has also introduced an All-You-Can-Eat ala-carte style buffet at RM39.90+ since 30th September 2011. The appetizers, soup and desserts are served at the buffet line but you can order any entrée and as many as you want from the menu. The entrees are served in smaller tasting portion so you can try the different dishes the restaurant has to offer, which include a variety of pasta, chicken, beef, lamb, seafood, fish and Asian specialties.

The restaurant was enjoying brisk business on the Sunday we went for buffet lunch and thus a little short-handed. Nevertheless, the kitchen was very fast to turn around our orders. It would be nice if they could at least serve water at the table vs. the buffet line but the food served was really good so we were quick to dismiss the minor inconveniences.

Despite the buffet style, we were served with very fine and good quality food. All of us were awed by the flavours and freshness of the ingredients served. Hats off to Deluxious for coming up with such creative ideas and especially so for such great culinary delights.

Justart sells just tarts (no pun intended). 

Justart sells hot and cold tarts with a variety of toppings or flavours. The cold tarts come in the following flavours - Kiwi Cheese, Strawberry Cheese, Grape Jelly, Mango Custard, Peach Custard, Peanut Butter, Longan Gou-Qi, Apple Cheese, Lemon Cheese, Hazelnut Mousse, Green Tea Mousse, Almond Chocolate, Almond Coffee, Durian Cheese, Blueberry Cheese, Bear Chocolate and Pineapple Custard.

Their hot tarts or shortcrust pastries also come in as many flavours - Pumpkin, Red Bean Tart, Pineapple, Apple and Banana, to name a few. I was told that their best seller hot tart is their Portugese Tart.

These dainty mini tarts are great for afternoon tea, special occasions or as gifts. I like the cheesy tarts which give a good contrast to the buttery and sweet crispy pastry.
They cater for functions like birthdays, parties and weddings and they also offer special Wedding boxes and Baby Full Moon sets.

They are currenty running a "Buy 8, Free 1" promotion until 15 Nov 2011.

Lighthouse Coffee Cafe

The Lighthouse Coffee Café serves mainly coffee beverages made from a variety of gourmet beans and in a myriad of styles e.g. latte, cappuccino, siphon, ice-drip and of course espresso. The gourmet beans are roasted and blended on a weekly basis to ensure freshness.

They also have quite an extensive food menu e.g. pasta, bakes rice, all day breakfast, soup, quiche and salad. Something about coffee with pasta appealed to us so we ordered the Lighthouse Spaghetti Caffe which was their house recipe pasta with coffee, capsicum and smoked chicken. The result was a light pasta dish with a hint of coffee taste.

Lighthouse Coffee also sells imported beans, coffee making ingredients, home and commercial grade espresso machines, professional tools and accessories for making coffee. If you are thinking of setting up your own café, they also offer café consultancy and equipment set up services. The interesting thing is Lighthouse Coffee also offers training workshops to Baristas and coffee enthusiasts, to learn the art of coffee making.

The warm ambiance promotes a sense of togetherness thus the café is great for chilling out with friends with a good cuppa as can be seen on the day we were there.
