Hanoi - Dinner at Sen International Buffet





On our last night at Hanoi, we were taken to this place for a buffet dinner.  It was a huge place with a lot of X'mas decorations, very crowded, everyone was in festive mood and there was a lavish spread of food.  It was indeed a sumptuous dinner and everyone of us was full to the brim.  The price was RM50 plus 10% on week days and RM70 plus 10% on weekends.  For the amount of food served, the price was very reasonable.



Entrance to Sen International


A wide spread of food ..... hungry already!


Crepes with shrimps




Some rolls, resemble  our 'chee cheong fun', beef or chicken filling


Gosh .....'Dumplings Human'!!   Think what they mean was handmade dumplings or steamed buns/pau with meat filling.


Escargot ....... and other types of shell fish and 'kerang' too.



Lobster Gruel.... this was very tasty.  There was seafood gruel as well.


Salad Bar ..... there were Banana,  Mango, Seaweed salad and I liked the Jackfruit salad.


Grilled duck



Grilled Sparrow ....... crispy and tasty




Rolls with beef, chicken and pork filling ..... vegetarian ones also available



Different types of 'Pho' or noddles, dry or with soup, with beef, chicken or pork. 


A variety of fruits


X'mas Jelly !


Dessert  ...... Cakes, Tiramisu, Pudding ...



'Tong Sui' ...... Red bean, Black glutinous rice, Tofu Far


Our table of sweets........ there were so much food, a pity that I can't post all of them.  Oh, and there was a live band and singers too, belting out English and Vietnamese songs.



Out in the gardens, all in festive mood.


Snapped this before we boarded the coach back to the hotel ..... and with this, we bid 'Sayonara' to Hanoi!



Readers.... I hope you have followed me and enjoyed the trip to Hanoi as well.

Almond Butter Cake ~ 杏仁牛油蛋糕

This is a delicious, moist, old-fashioned butter cake full of almondy flavour.  It looks pretty with the almond flaky top, certainly a crowd pleaser.   This cake is best consumed on the day it's freshly baked because of the crunchy nutty top but leftovers can still be kept chilled and reheated before serving.

Country style steam chicken

This is one simple recipe of  steamed chicken dish which I'm sure many bloggers have blogged before.  Tasty yet easy and quick to prepare, this dish pairs very well with steamy hot white rice.

Pandan Angku Kuih ~ 班兰叶龟糕

I've never thought of making Angku Kuih or Red Tortoise Cake simply because it's so readily available in my daily market place.  But there have been so many posts of this traditional kuih by my fellow food bloggers and  they look so cute and beautiful that I just cannot resist the temptation of not trying my hands at it.

I must admit that making this kuih can be rather tedious and the amount of work can really make your head spin.  But if you prepare the mung bean filling a day ahead, then it does help to lighten your work quite a fair bit.  For all the  effort, these Pandan Angku Kuih came out beautifully.  To see how the kuih will be like the next day, I kept some in a container at room temperature.  To my surprise the skin of the kuih stayed soft till late the next day.  I didn't have to steam them again.  All I can say is that my efforts paid off handsomely and I'm so pleased.  Now, I've no qualms  experimenting this Angku Kuih with different flavours :)
