[Media Invite] Kwee Zeen @ Sofitel Singapore Sentosa Resort

Kwee Zeen is located at Sofitel Singapore Sentosa Resort and serves Western-French and Pan-Asian cuisine. Not forgetting, delicious handcrafted chocolate creations as well from the chocolate masters at Chocholaterie. Alight at Sofitel Singapore Sentosa Resort lobby and walk towards the left to find Kwee Zeen.

On Mondays to Wednesdays, one could order from its ala-carte menu and from Fridays to Saturdays, Kwee Zeen serves French Rotisserie buffet. On Thursdays, there's a Cheese Rendezvous night where one could get unlimited servings from a selection of 32 types of cheeses. Just need to pick the right wine to enhance the experience. On Sunday, there's the Magnifique Sunday Champagne Brunch.

Liked the high ceilings and the comfortable seats. Now that seating arrangements are settled, let's explore the buffet area. We were there on a Friday night, so we were having the French Rotisserie themed items.

Enjoy items such as poulet, porc and du boeuf from the rotisserie. The chicken with some skin was the best. Or, for seafood lover, there is fish.

What is your preferred sequence at a buffet? Bread and soup? Tried the french onion soup and it was pretty tasty. Just missing that layer melty cheese. There's creamy leek soup as well if you prefer.

Or, how about starting with some fresh sashimi or oyster? We had Irish oysters. Be it Irish or France, I like my oysters. The plump'er the better!

Besides Irish oysters, there's clams, mussels and boiled prawns.

There are a couple of appetisers around, and most are pretty healthy looking. Kimchi, tofu, salads and the likes.

Since it is a buffet, after the initial cold seafood, usually I'd go for the mains. Took the rotisserie items; beef and chicken and the fish. For the greens, had the ratatouille and the broccoli. For carbs, had rice and the gratin. Here's what my plate of assorted items looked like:

Oh my, you should try the truffle gratin. It was good. Here's a photo of it from the buffet line.

Out of the main dining area, walk through the side door to find a small selection of dim sum items, prata and masala, and a small noodle station. Had a bowl of fishball laksa to try.


There's also a small selection of cheeses and charchuterie, in case you'd like to have those with a glass of wine to wind down.

Did not have them with wine though. Had a glass of mango juice (ala-carte order) instead. Lovely sweetness from the fruit.

To end the meal, let's have some dessert.  Don't leave without trying the chocolate pudding. Definitely a must-try!

Chocolate pudding and vanilla ice-cream. The best combination. And, of course, coffee. Now, the idea is just to have a bit of that chocolate pudding. It was dense, a little bit like a cake but so good. Pairing it with vanilla ice-cream was a good choice.

And, do try the handcrafted chocolates from Chocolaterie. You can have an Eiffel Tower and eat it too! My favourite was the Dulcey. On the plate was chocolate pralines, rocher, rose, Eiffel Tower and dulcey. The rose was interesting too. Soft center and fragrance of the flower. Though the Dulcey was the sweetest, it was charming and so agreeable to our tastebuds. Good as gift too. The handcrafted chocolates are not part of the buffet and each piece cost $2.50++.
