Taipei City – Regent Buffet

The Regent Hotel might not be much to look at, but if you can look past the dull exterior you’ll find a few good places inside, such as Lady M (get the Matcha mille feuille pancake, thank me later) and Brasserie (for a pretty damn good buffet lunch).

Best picks from above:

  • Flame-grilled beef
  • Sushi hand roll
  • Sashimi (specifically salmon)
  • Salad selection
  • Mussels
  • Shrimp
  • Squid

I like seafood, but I find crab and that little crayfish thing just a bit too fiddly. I know a lot of people appreciate the seafood here, and I wish I could, too, but I am just not as used to eating it. Next time I will get someone to show me how to harvest crab better…

Had to include this pic just because it’s a beauty. But, really, the dimsum was just OK…

Best picks from above

  • Häagen-Dazs ice cream
  • Chocolate brownie bite
  • Madeleine

It seems like in TP, you can judge a buffet by whether it sells Häagen-Dazs or not… Regent stock Häagen-Dazs, but is the buffet really that good? In all honesty, I would say that it isn’t. In terms of 5 star hotels, I would say that The Grand Hyatt was marginally better, but if we omit 5 star hotels, then my favourite would still have to be EatTogether at ATT4Fun. I’ve also heard great things from Hi Li in Eastern Area’s Sogo.
