Al Ahmadi Buffet, Crown Plaza

The Crown (Crowne?) Plaza has a new chef, hired especially to give the buffet offerings that extra something special. You can see it right away; the food displayed has STYLE! Or at least until the fourth or fifth diner has dished in!

My favorite part is the salads, but somehow I thought I was taking a photo of the shrimp and acocado, and I missed it . . .

And I got so busy with the salads that I totally missed photos of the main dishes, and the special pasta and schwerma guys, and the special Kuwaiti dessert stand, and the whole stand devoted to fabulous breads . . .

I love it that they give you tiny little dessert portions, so you don’t feel so guilty about taking a couple – or three. Actually, I see people who fill their plates with desserts. And Adventure Man says we can just start with dessert and work our way back to the salads. I like that idea.

  6. Zed, that’s why I posted it today. To do it during Ramadan would be too CRUEL.

    R – I think we ought to have a virtual Iftar celebration for you! And we can all SING!

    Chikapappi – see you there!

    Purg – What! I thought you never saw food you didn’t like?

    Skunk – after sundown!

  12. Cixousianpanic, Vixenfatale . . . hmmmm. . . we all seem to like food a lot! There is a private room, maybe one day we should call a secret female blogger’s meeting and hide there. They would probably kick us out for laughing too much!
