[CLOSED] Alkaff Mansion Ristorante – Monthly Italian Gourmet Buffet [MEDIA INVITE]

The Lamb Rack with Sardinian Vermentino
Best dish of the night

Introducing the Monthly Italian Gourmet Buffet in Alkaff Mansion. This buffet will showcase the popular dishes from Sunday Prosecco Brunch, as well as the scrumptious Italian Grigliata Grill plus bar at Alkaff Mansion Ristorante. The Italian Gourmet Buffet dinner is available only on the third Thursday of the month, unless announced otherwise through social media. (For Previous Review of Alkaff Mansion, CLICK HERE)

Assorted Cold Cuts

The highlights of The Great Italian Gourmet Buffet are:

Coffin Bay Oysters. This South Australian Oysters are fresh and plum. I like my oysters simple, with a touch of lemon. You can taste the simple freshness of the oyster when it glides down your throat. A good start to the buffet.

Carpaccio. There are a few selection of carpaccio in the antipasti, such as Wagyu Beef Carpaccio, Tuna Carpaccio with Orange & Black Olives, and Octopus Carpaccio with Orange & Balsamic Reduction. Our pick is the Wagyu Beef Carpaccio, not commonly available, where the thinly sliced beef just melts in your mouth with the tangy dressing. Yum Yum.

Mozzarella Cheese. The perennial favourite dish Mozzarella Cheese with Tomato & Basil. We just can't say no to it. The soft texture of the cheese, sliced sweet tomatoes and aroma of the basil definitely our pick for cheese salad combo any day.

Pizza. A must try here. No matter what toppings they put on it, the combination of thin crust, marinara sauce and generous mozzarella cheese just made it delizioso.

Lamb Rack. The Lamb Rack with Sardinian Vermentino, The lamb was tender and succulent, as it was marinated with Italian white wine. The balance of the fats and meat is just spot on. Though the 36-hour marinated Beef Striploin is good, but it just can't beat the lamb. We are guilty of finishing about one rack of lamb here.

Grilled Sardinian Octopus. To be exact grilled Sardinian octopus leg. Not the first time that we tried this in Alkaff Mansion, but not the one to be miss. Slightly hard to chew on this time around, but still give a pleasant taste.

Desserts. The chocolate desserts are ... Chocolategasm!!! There is a special chocolate cake, which basically infused with chilli. Yup Cake with chilli. The people here just love their chilli surprise, just like the chilli mix in the cocktail, named Alkaff Potion. (Please note that some of the chocolate cake contain coffee, if you are allergic to coffee like LD, you might have to check on the content in the dish dessert).

Desserts Selection

LD's favourite is the chocolate profiteroles. This bit size desserts is just so irresistible, you just pop it in your mouth one at a time. Yum Yum.

Cheese Selection (Did not try)

Overall, it was definitely a pleasant experience to be back in Alkaff Mansion. The food definitely top notch and so does the service. So check out the details below, as well as the menu for the buffet. Ciao!! Cheers!!
