The newly open Harbour Cafe in Traders Hotel (N1.41784 E103.65638) has offering a nice buffet dinner to their guests and public. The Traders Hotel at Nusajaya started operation together with the restaurants about month ago, we were invited by the Communication Manager - Ms Aidah for the buffet dinner on one of the evening.
The Traders Hotel is located next to the popular Hello Kitty Theme Park and Puteri Harbour of Johor, the signages along the highway provide easy navigation for the visitor to the destination easily.

The Cafe is offering the International and local delicacies, where you can taste full of varieties in one stop. During the Ramadan month, they prepared more local cuisine compare with normal serving to cater the guests for 'Buka Puasa'.
Once we stepped into the cafe, we were greeted by the nicely display fruits and vegetables pickles on the decoration cabinets...it was so tempted to grab some of it...:)

When talk about Chinese corner, it won't be complete with the 'Dim Sum'. The tasty dim sum served without pork and lard, that means our Muslim friends also can enjoy the Chinese dim sum comfortable.

I can't taste all the foods here because of my limited stomach space, I wish I have 2-3 tummy to fill all the foods here, am I greedy?! :)
I tasted the baby lamb, nice and succulent with the kuzi sauce. The aromatic satay sauce was unique and special which I never try before! Nice! We were indulged in the Sashimi that evening...the Salmon and Tuna Sashimis were fresh with the perfect texture.

The Unique Creation from Chef Bing

We had a wonderful evening having the buffet dinner at Harbour Cafe! I'll definitely back for more...

A common question from friends : "How's the food?" Well, I cannot taste all the foods in the cafe, and understand that everyone has a different taste bud. You have to try it yourself. What I can say is...some were average and most were Yummylicious! Especially dine in the nice environment, I would say...I love it!

The price for the buffet dinner at Harbour Cafe from 10th July until 9th August 2013 is RM108++ per pax, 6.30pm - 10.30pm. If you visiting the cafe in the big group, you may contact the Hotel for better price.

Last, I would like to thanks to Ms Aidah - Communicaton Manager, Mr Alan Wong - Executive Chef, Mr Bing - Chef and Mr Avraam - F & B Manager for their warm hospitality and the delicious foods.
