Epicurean, Burswood (WA) by Obelix

I write this whilst digesting. It was my 15th year wedding anniversary and we celebrated by doing the one thing we are both accomplished at and gives us mutual pleasure - eating.

... 21, 22, 23, 24... who's counting?

P suggested we fly to Perth to try the dinner buffet at the Epicurean in Crown Towers. We stayed at Crown Towers so it was just a gluttonous elevator ride downstairs for dinner. We have both heard rave reviews of the buffet and we were not disappointed.

The range was extensive. There was the obligatory seafood bar. I am simultaneously ashamed (of my greed) and proud (of my capacity) to knock back two dozen oysters. The Coffin Bay oysters were petite. But what they lacked in size they made up for in salt-of-the-seaness.

I leave you with a few pics of the hot foods. Mainly pan Asian specialities - Indian and Chinese influenced. The Shanghainese pork belly was definitely worth a mention as was the crab risotto. It melted in the mouth. The carvery had all of the barn animals representing alongside big fluffy Yorkshire puddings.

The desserts were abundant. Little mini petit fours; larger gateaux; mochi; ice cream; hot puds and an intricate waterfall of hot chocolate. Oh yeah, there was fruit but who eats that?!

The Epicurean lives up to the hype. A luxe treat - the buffet was $70 per head.
