Avangio Mercato Restaurant Buffet Review | Kota Kinabalu, Sabah

hello guys!

did you know Mercato means Market in Italian? 
was invited to a tasting session at Mercato Restaurant in Avangio Hotel, Kota Kinabalu!
and will be sharing some of the menus and what I thought about the buffet spread!

Avangio Hotel Kota Kinabalu will be introducing their tasteful weekend buffet which will be available every weekend! at quite a reasonable price of RM48 /adult and RM38 /child (6-12yrs) inclusive of 6% GST too!

Now they also have a BUY4FREE1 Promotion! 

the buffet spread is focused on local delicacies. with quite an appealing appetizers like glass noodle salad, raw papaya salads, and local traditional dish, hinava! the chicken dumpling finger food was pretty addictive too! my favourite part of every buffet i go to is usually the appetizers! hahaha oh my. so they usually get extra scoops to my plate. oh god, how to diet. 

among the local dishes, there's mixtures of strong spiced rendangs and madras, and also lighter sweet tangy tastes like pineapple fish  and soy sauce based mixed chicken tofu. the taste wise is really great! just nice and flavourful!

I personally enjoyed the chicken tofu, and the pineapple fish
 kungpao chicken was cooked to perfection! best texture of the chicken because the chicken is soft and nicely marinated!

the beef rendang in peanut sauce was good too! nice sweet and peanuty taste still lingers after. 
my taste buds is definitely towards the sweet and tangy side, but you'll have to be there to try it yourself!

however they could improve on desserts, as I wish there was more variety for the sweet tooth like me! haha was hoping for ice creams and more cakes selections.

but all in all, enjoyed the night with a happy filled up tummy! and great companions!
i'm already craving the glass noodles with prawn! 

Thank you Avangio Hotel for having us!
