TIPS: Top Foods You Should Try at Vikings
Vikings offers a wide array of food. From dim sums to makis to canapes, and from lamb shanks to coq au vin (cok-o-van which means rooster with wine, I’m just being classy) to different meat skewers, you can certainly find something that will satisfy your palate. Since it is a common problem that when going to buffet restaurants, some of the awesome foods are missed because of the desire to try everything else, here is a rough guide of the food that you shouldn’t miss when dining at Vikings. But remember, my basis is my own palate but I hope we share the same taste.
My favorite among all the food that I have tasted in Vikings is the Baked Oyster with Cheese. I think many will agree with me on this since the serving tray is always empty a few seconds after it has been refilled. The oysters are really tasty – like exploding flavors of the sea in your mouth. And the melted cheese on top of the oysters are so creamy, which adds richness to the dish.
The BBQ Ribs are good but they have some burnt corners that you need to slice off because those are bitter. The meat skewers especially the sausages are really good! When you bite at the sausage, they are bursting with flavor.
The only vegetable dish that I liked is the Broccoli and Cauliflower with Cheese. The vegetables are crunchy while the cheese made this dish truly delectable. It is topped with bits of bacon which has made this more awesome!
Except for that one cheese that has a bitter after taste, I love everything on the cold cuts and cheese section. The cold cuts are juicy while the cheeses are very flavorful. The shrimp canapes tasted great. The pates that I have tried are all awesome. I placed them on top of a sliced toasted baguette. The tuna-topped egg halves are also superb. I didn’t know that tuna, olives, and eggs make a good team. It’s the first time I had a ceviche (the ones in the shot glasses on the background) but I liked them too. They contain slices of shrimp immersed in vinegar. But if you don’t like sour food, you might not be amused by the ceviche.
Steamed seafood is overflowing at Vikings. The steamed red crabs may be difficult to eat but the they are truly worth it. There are also steamed shrimps but the red crabs are better. You can even choose to get the ones dipped in chili batter if you want something spicy. The fat and meat of the red crab are heavenly. You can request for a shell cracker to make it easier to dismantle the claws.
I also liked the Seafood Thermidor unfortunately I missed taking a picture. That’s fine, at least I got to taste it. Seafood thermidor contains pieces of different seafood but mainly fish like cream dory. It is cooked with milk, cream, and cheese. I think it’s baked because it looks like lasagna but instead of pasta you get fish with every slice. Delish!
Apparently, I love boiled eggs so another food that I consider great is the Boiled Eggs with Caviar. Yeah, any sounds so classy when you put caviar on it. Lol. The eggs lie on top of steamed carrots, corn, and peas. Mmmm!
The Lengua in Cream Sauce is soft that it melts in your mouth when you bite it. The cream sauce makes this a really festive treat.
Like the lengua, the Braised Lamb Shank also melts in your mouth. It falls off the bone so I left the bones in the container and just got the meat. Sorry.. I love the sweet taste of the sauce. I think it has red wine. I also love how the stench of the meat was completely masked. I enjoyed this lamb dish compared to other lamb dishes I have had before.
To end the pig out session, cap it off with this Chocolate Fondue. It doesn’t have to be marshmallows only but you can pour the chocolate on any dessert you want. Insider tip, the chocolate was the perfect sauce for the avocado ice cream.
For the drinks, request for their Watermelon Shake. This drink is really refreshing while filling your tummy with all the food that you see.
Now, go on and enjoy the buffet!
Spread some awesome..ness..
