Seafood Buffet at Gobo Chit Chat, Traders Hotel, IMHO, THE BEST VALUE BUFFET in town.

It's been awhile since I've been to Gobo Chit Chat in Traders Hotel, and truth be told, I am not really big on buffets.  It's like buying a CD, you'll be lucky to get two songs that you actually like in the whole album.  But upon entering the familiar surrounds of Gobo CC, I was literally quite stunned by the vast array of creatures from Neptune's kingdom, and the variety of seafood was simply quite amazing.

The seafood buffet is on Fridays & Saturdays only, and is priced at a remarkably affordable rate of RM108++, whereby if you whacked two large legs of the Alaskan king crab would already make it worthwhile.

Platters and platters of cold cuts, deep fried tempura, really something for everyone.

As I was saying, these babies alone make it worthwhile.  And they seem to be very generous as well, for I noticed that this dish was always replenished.  The King Crab is done the way it should be, just boiled, and served like that with minimal disturbance to the sweet taste.

Clams in all shapes and sizes, but that's just the clam before the storm....

Steamed flower crab, for those who do not wish to partake in the amphibian mud crabs.

Fresh fresh seawater prawns, ..I actually like this steamed/boiled section the best, because good seafood should be eaten that way.

Generous helpings of poached scallops.

Slipper lobsters galore..

And the piece de resistance of the entire buffet, if you ask me, this mud crab station that churns out an amazing butter crab....

Butter crab, in claypot.  When I do revisit, I am so heading here first.

For those who prefer their foods more cooked and flavoured, there is no shortage of choice, from Butter Prawns, Paella,

Fried fish, pastas...

And lovely ladies.....
And dashing young men.....

The grill/bbq section also has an impressive variety of fresh seafood.
If you need your meat, there is certainly no shortage of that either.

I personally LOVED the asparagus, and had my fill of roughage.

But really, who can still eat dessert after such a spread!!!

your blog has great pictures and descriptions, but its really sad and hard for readers like myself to read your posts because the size of your pics are all different, making it hard to look at the pics. also, you should consider putting in more effort for your layout/background etc.

few good examples that you can refer to are ilovemsiafood@wordpress , . they have extremely HD pics with all same sizes, and nice descriptions, most importantly a clean, edgy and humble layout that is comfortable and soothing to browse.

pls take my comment into deep consideration. Love ur posts always. it may take time but pls do make it happen. would b happy to hear from u once you try out these amazing factors that may change your life eg: winning a blog award or so.

to contact me for any more help or ideas;

thanks for reading and have a great day ahead.
