But my latest buffet adventure came out of the neither circumstances, but from the marketing team from Cordis Hotel in Mongkok inviting me to try out the latest menu promotion at their cafe. The hotel in the heart of the busy Mongkok district formerly known as The Langham Place has recently undergone some renovations and reincarnated as Cordis, the first of a new line of hotels under the same group but more contemporary in style. There's also some minor shuffle of their F&B facilities, but The Place remains as the main attractions, the cafe one level below from the lobby offering buffets all day long catered to both hotel guests and walk-in customers at this remodeled venue.
Another thing I love about the place was the casual atmosphere. There were a good number of people dining so the food was constantly taken and replenished, but it never got too crowded to the point of having a line for anything. Just perfect for a laid-back evening - the only problem was to decide what to eat out of so many choices.
When? January 7 2016
