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.

Vietnamese Caramelised Chicken ~ 越南焦糖鸡

This is a quickie and delicious chicken dish, braised in caramelised sauce.  The ingredients are not too difficult to find and if you can't find kaffir lime leaves, you can omit them altogether.  This dish serves well with white rice and a side veggie dish.  Try it!

Matcha/Green Tea Pound Cake ~ 抹茶磅蛋糕

I was so pleased when I saw the nice green colour of this pound cake after I removed it from the oven, for true to the recommendation by the lady at the shop where I usually get my ingredients, she assured me that I won't be disappointed.  Yes, it is green and not pale or brownish.  The homemade red bean paste complimented well with the green tea and the cake stayed moist and soft even after three days kept in an airtight container, refrigerated.
