Gobo Chit Chat's buffet has always struck me as good value for money. At RM149 nett, and for the variety of food, what can I say. And this year's festive spread together with the free flow seafood really puts you into a food coma after the meal. I am actually intrigued by how much some people can tuck away at buffets like this. I find in my old age, I can only very selectively zoom in to a few items of desire, and ignore the rest. I guess this is applicable not only to food, in a buffet, but life in general.
In keeping with the season, I zeroed into the Christmas Turkey. Okay, I am not really an ardent fan of turkey, but hey, this IS the dish that only comes round once a year, and if you get a nice piece of juicy thigh, it can be rather palatable. Of course, I find the breast meat totally redundant, and I wait for genetic engineering to create a turkey that is all leg and thigh and no breast.

The beef wellington was also pretty good. Flaky puff pastry, tender meat.
For me, if I can find 5 or more items that I like and that I can zero in in a buffet, I am already a happy camper.
Some other dishes worthy of mention are ..
The Satay, both chicken and beef....
Too full to even attempt the noodle station, and mind you, I am a numero uno noodle fan.
