“The Strawberry Buffet” at The Ritz-Carlton Osaka
To those of you who love sweets that use strawberries as much as I do, I would like to recommend the “Strawberry Buffet” that is currently taking place at The Ritz-Carlton Osaka.
The contents of this “Strawberry Buffet” which I enjoyed at The Ritz-Carlton Osaka were too awesome.
A long line had formed ten minutes before the buffet opened (starts at 2:30 p.m.)…
Despite it being a weekday, over 50 people were in line.
Spirits were high from the thought of the rich assortment of strawberry sweets.
“The Strawberry Buffet” took place at the Italian restaurant “Splendido”, on the first floor of The Ritz-Carlton Osaka.
A place with relaxed lighting and a beautiful interior.
“The Strawberry Buffet” (90 minutes, ¥4,500) features all-you-can-drink coffee, black tea, and more.
I chose champagne service when I made my reservation, so I started off with a champagne toast.
The buffet corner was filled with strawberries, strawberries, and more strawberries.
It is an incredibly pleasant place for those who love strawberry sweets.
I will introduce you below to some of the strawberry sweets that were offered.
Strawberry and banana skewers.
The strawberry chocolate fondue corner.
Strawberry cupcakes, danishes, and more.
Fresh, oven-baked pizza (several kinds available.)
Strawberry mille-feuille with strawberry trifle and strawberry savarin.
Creme brulee with strawberries.
Strawberry Swiss rolls, strawberry short cake, strawberry cheesecake, and more kinds of cakes that use strawberries.
Strawberry flavored financiers.
Tiny but cute strawberry pancakes.
Strawberry and shrimp sandwiches and focaccio.
And so on and so forth… there was a sheer endless variety of strawberry sweets.
And now for the first course!
I got strawberry scones (with clotted cream), strawberry pancakes, strawberry financiers, strawberry mille-feuille, and creme brulee.
The matching flavor of strawberry to each of the sweets was incredible!
Each of the sweets was extremely high quality.
I squeezed in a risotto in order to reset my taste buds.
This Italian risotto was not sweet, contrary to its appearance.
And now for the second course!
I got strawberry gratin, strawberry eclair, strawberry macaroon, strawberry rice cake, petit gâteau, strawberry chocolate mousse, strawberry jam, and fresh strawberries.
This course centered on creamy sweets, but the tartness of the strawberries was nicely blended into each of these delicious sweets.
I think I can eat more.
At that moment, “Show Time” started at the table directly next to mine.
This exceptional freshly-made strawberry flambe has the wonderful, rich aroma of liquor.
I enjoyed it as a topping for pancakes and scones.
At this point I reset my taste buds with some fresh strawberries.
After enjoying fresh strawberries, I had some freshly baked crepes.
It was so good that I wanted another piece.
The extravagant flavor of the freshly baked pizza made it feel like I was enjoying an Italian dinner, despite it being a buffet.
The refreshing tartness of that day’s special drink (strawberry and grapefruit) left an impression on me.
On to course three!
I got a strawberry tart, strawberry brownie, french toast, strawberry tube cake, and strawberry cheesecake.
I enjoyed to my heart’s content flavorful black teas such as Darjeeling and Earl Grey.
Finally, the meat pizza finished baking, so I grabbed a couple pieces.
It was delicious. That’s enough food for me!
This was the first time I went to the sweets buffet at The Ritz-Carlton Osaka, and I was surprised by how lively it was.
I was not able to eat and drink everything on offer, but I was very satisfied by the sweets, which were all delicious.
I had a great time at “The Strawberry Buffet”, which was absolutely worth the price.
I fully enjoyed it!
