Awesome Lobster Buffet at Diamond Hotel's Corniche

Lobster. Prepared any way you want. All you want. And you'll definitely want the Lobster Buffet at Diamond Hotel's Corniche. For a limited time, The Corniche at Diamond Hotel will feature the Lobster Buffet every Friday, from 6:00pm to 10:00 pm for the next few weeks. Mark your calendars...

The regular buffet at The Corniche is already impressive, but the Friday Lobster Buffet is a definite must try for seafood lovers. Fresh lobsters and a variety of seafood are the main attractions of the Lobster Buffet at The Corniche, including oysters, scallops, mussels, clams, crabs and prawns. And when you just can't have enough of lobsters, the different stations also feature lobster based dishes for a unique buffet experience. Very cool.

The well-stocked display of limitless fresh seafood is the buffet's main attraction, and once a week, the lobsters get top-billing. Definitely an impressive site...

And the choices are extensive. Each seafood item is ready for your plate, or you can have it prepared any way you wish. Grilled, sauteed in butter, name it. The display includes plump, fresh prawns...

...a variety of shellfish...

...succulent crabs...

...and the buffet's main attraction...steamed lobsters ready for your plate. Or, you can have it prepared the way you like it, and the chefs assigned in the different food stations will gladly do it for you. Lobster with pasta? No prob.

The Corniche also offers fresh "Pitik," or Slipper Lobsters as another option. Good as is, with some melted butter, or grilled, with even more butter.

The displays are constantly restocked, so seconds and thirds are no problem. Just seeing this much lobster is already a sensory experience. But take your time, and go explore the different stations, as you wouldn't want to miss anything.

You can check out the different food stations with their own lobster dishes, including lobster based soups and salads, or the Lobster Paella...

...baked lobster with cheese...

...and even grilled Tandoori-style lobsters.

Once you settle down, it's time to pick your lobster. The chef then slices the lobster, and it's good to go. A slice of lemon and some melted butter...all you need now is a nice glass of white wine.

You can have the chefs prepare a classic Lobster Thermidore, with some onion-mustard chutney and sauce bearnaise...

...or simply sauteed with butter...

...or go for the Baked Lobster with Four Cheeses. And each option is definitely worth trying.

But don't miss out on the other items like the scallops, baked with butter...

...and the extensive sushi selection. And of course, don't pass up on the fresh lobster roll.

Premium tuna sashimi is also available, set on a whole fresh tuna. Awesome.

For meat lovers, fret not. A carving station with premium prime rib is also available, as well Peking Duck, grilled pork and a variety of chicken dishes.

Surf and Turf? Why not. Prime Rib with Grilled Slipper Lobster...perfect.

And leave some room for dessert, as the options are as extensive as one can expect, with elegant cakes and pastries from Diamond Hotel's The Cake Club... homemade ice cream...

...and elegant truffles and other desserts. You can't not have dessert at The Corniche. And what better way to cap a lobster dinner than with some of Diamond Hotel's signature desserts.

The Corniche also offers an impressive salad, grill, Indian, Chinese, Japanese, cheeses, cold cuts and pasta stations in addition to the fresh lobster and seafood. The buffet price of P 2385++ net includes a glass of red or white wine as well. The unlimited lobsters, cooked any way you want, fresh shellfish and seafood, as well as the other buffet choices make this a pretty good deal. Seriously.

Execute Chef Marko Rankel is on deck to ensure you have an unforgettable dining experience at Corniche. Overall, the lobster alone is worth the buffet price. And hey, everyone deserves a little indulgence, and this one is definitely one of them.
