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.

Ondeh Ondeh Pandan Cupcakes ~ 香兰小蛋糕

Ondeh Ondeh are green coloured and pandan flavoured glutinous rice balls with gula melaka or palm sugar filling, coated with freshly grated coconut.  We call it 'Kuih'.  Ondeh Ondeh cake is entirely different from this 'Kuih'.
I don't know how the name 'Ondeh Ondeh cake' came about but I guess it's because of the colour and the ingredients which are somewhat similar to that of the 'kuih'.
This pandan flavoured Ondeh Ondeh cupcake is moist, soft and slightly spongy and the gula melaka filling blends awfully well with the pandan and 'santan'/coconut milk.  A wonderful tea-time snack or a delectable dessert, any time!

Traditional Mixed Nuts Mooncake ~ 2013

Traditional Mixed Nuts Mooncake was my dad's perennial favourite.  At that time I couldn't understand why this festive traditional mooncake was most enjoyed by the older folks.  But nowadays, I too have slowly acquired the taste for this sweet, salty and nutty variety.  These cakes are best cut in  small wedges, savoured by small delicate bites and not by the mouthfuls, and they are best enjoyed with a pot of hot Chinese tea.
