Jamoo All You Can Eat Buffet - part II

Jamoo -  Shangrila Hotel Surabaya
Desserts


Dessert adalah salah satu andalan jamoo pada saat awal pembukaannya, saya ingat dahulu kalau melewati jalan di Mayjend Sungkono ada billboard besar yang mengiklankan chocolate fountainnya. Sempat mengira chocolate fountainnya cukup besar seperti yang biasa ada di Las Vegas, ternyata chocolate fountainnya sama dengan yang dipakai counter snack di mall-mall yang menjual chocolate dipped fruits :D
Walau demikian, pada saat awal buka dahulu hal ini termasuk langka (2004?) dan sempat menjadi selling point yang cukup menarik di buffet nya.

Dessert is Jamoo's claim of fame during the first time they open. There wasn't many places that offered it, so they milk the hell out of it. I remember driving down the road seeing a big billboard advertising their chocolate fountain few years back. Thought that the fountain would be those ginormous ones that they usually used in Vegas, little did I know that it's the small one used in snack vendors in malls :D
Nonetheless on it's opening day (year 2004?) it was a novelty, and that became one of the selling point that makes their buffet popular.

Jamoo's Chocolate Fountain





Sekarang Hotel bintang 5 di samping Shangrila di Surabaya juga menyediakan chocolate fountain serupa di menu buffet nya. Pavilion di Marriot dan Kafe Bromo di Sheraton juga menyediakan hidangan dessert serupa.

Nowadays every other 5 star hotels in Surabaya follow suits Shangrila and serves this chocolate fountain in their buffet menu, two examples are Marriot's Pavilion restaurant and Sheraton's Cafe Bromo.


Jamoo - Cakes
Jamoo - Strawberry Cheese Cake

Jamoo - Indonesian Traditional desserts



Jamoo - Assorted Tropical fruits

Jamoo - Cut fruits and juices

Jamoo - Waffle & Crepes

Jamoo - small slices of cake

Jamoo - Dessert plate

Untuk pilihan cake nya lumayan ok, enak banget sih tidak, standard buffet. Yang lebih special mungkin fresh warm wafflenya, apalagi dengan paduan ice cream vanilla dan pilihan saus blueberry, mapple syrup, honey atau chocolate.

Their choices of cake and pastries are quite good. Though not on par with my favorite cakery, this one also did not dissapoint. There are many interesting and colorful selections. other than the cakes, I suggest trying the fresh warm waffle with vanilla ice cream on top with chocolate sauce, delicious :).

Per orang untuk lunch dikenakan Rp 168.000 ++ (tax and service 21%) and Rp 208.000 ++ for dinner. Untuk pengguna kartu HSBC ada discount sebesar 20%. Cukup puas dengan hidangan yang ada di buffet lunch Jamoo. Appetizer dan dessertnya cukup menarik, tapi untuk main course dan japanese counternya cenderung biasa-biasa. Di Jamoo pilihannya memang banyak dan beragam, tapi belum ada yang benar-benar mengena hingga membuat ingin sering kembali. Kalaupun ada yang membuat terngiang mungkin malah sup krim, scallop dan pilihan dessertnya.

It costs Rp 168.000 ++ for each person on lunch buffet and Rp 208.000++ for dinner. There's 20% discount for HSBC card holder. I personally was quite satisfied with the buffet, but for my taste, it's too many selection without anything to really remember it by, just lots of choices that would make some foodies excited. I personally would prefer a place with less choices but with better tasting dishes that will kept me going back. The Appetizer and dessert are quite nice, but the main course and Japanese station leaves something to be desired. Overall would be good choice for people who love many choices on the buffet.
