Conveniently located at Orchard Road, KUVO is a little piece of oasis that makes you forget that you’re in the heart of all the action.
Diners who like variety without breaking the bank will be keen in their latest buffet, which features Chinese contemporary tapas. Premium dishes are limited to one serving per diner, while the others can be re-ordered to your heart’s desire.
One Serving Per Diner Section
It’s difficult to choose my favourite from this segment as the offerings are all so good! The intoxicating scent of truffle hits you the second you’re within range of the Braised Abalone & Superior Broth Rice with Truffle Oil. The ingredients worked in harmony to illicit a memorable experience.
Suckling Pig takes a more refine route at KUVO with stylish interpretation, enhanced with a touch of prawn paste and caviar which elevate the flavours. The Crispy Suckling Pig with Prawn Paste (dinner only) was definitely an interesting change from the usual.
There’s something intrinsically satisfying about salted egg dishes and I never fail to order when it’s on the menu. The large and crunchy Sautéed Tiger Prawns with Salted Egg Yolk certainly didn’t disappoint!
Seafood lovers will adore the Steam Blue Shell Mussels superloaded with fragrant garlic, seductively smoky Grilled Hokkaido Squid and succulent Shaoxing Crabs (for minimum 4 pax, dinner only)
As my dining companion and I were pretty full, we only managed to try a few dishes from this segment.
I highly recommend the Clams in Special Sauce which features fresh crustaceans tossed in a dynamic chilli sauce.
Popular dim sum classics such as Crispy Shrimp Wanton with Wasabi Mayo and Seafood Radish Cake with XO Sauce are also available.
Vege selection include Poached Chinese Spinach with Trio Egg in Superior Broth, Sautéed String Beans with preserved turnip and Stir-fried Lettuce with minced garlic.
Complete your meal with refreshing palate-cleanser, Calamansi Jelly, or for something more sinful, go for the Pan-fried Glutinous Carrot Cake.
If you’re ever in town looking for an affordable buffet with quality food, KUVO should be at the top of your list. Who says you can’t have the best of both worlds? Do try to come in a group of 4 or more so that you can enjoy the Shaoxing wine Crabs and sample a wider assortment of dishes.
Many thanks to KUVO for the invite.
