Let's Sweets Japanese Buffet & Sweets

Dessert lovers, do mark your calender for this coming Friday, 06 August 2010 and head down to Bugis Junction, level 2. You can sink your teeth and fill your tummy with all these yummy desserts and savory food buffet at the newly opened Restaurant known as "Let's Sweets". This is another innovative dining restaurant by Japan Foods Holding Ltd which is best known for its quality and authentic Japanese fare with celebrated brands such as “Ajisen Ramen”, “Manpuku”, “Botejyu”, “Fruit Paradise” and “AOBA”.

Located at Bugis Junction, Let's Sweets is well furnished for its authentic Japanese creation with contemporary French inspired decor. The restaurant is fill with about 100 seats which provides a perfect and cosy tea session with friends in the afternoon or relaxing evening for a satisfying meal and treat.

Yesterday I was invited as one of the guests to witness the Media Launch of this brand new Japanese Dessert Buffet restaurant in Bugis. While waiting for the Opening speech, we were curious with this little “Blue Timer” that is being placed on every table. And after checking with the waitress; this is actually used to time the buffet eg:- For a 60 minute spread, the timer will be set till 50 minutes for diner to take and enjoy the food from the buffet area and another last 10 minutes is for finishing up all the food on the tables and proceed to the billing.

Head Pastry Chef, Miss Chika Hatekeyama (center of the 3 beautiful ladies), together with her dedicated team of four experienced and skillful chefs from Japan will feature an extensive selection of more 40 delicate and delightful dessert spreads in Singapore.

The buffet spread consist of 4 counters whereby you can fill up your tummy, enlighten your sight and pamper your taste buds with all kinds of Desserts (cream puff, jelly, mousse cake, cheesecake, crepe and etc), Savory Dishes (pasta, pizza, soup, finger food and etc) and Beverage counter with Chocolate Fondant.

I love the set up of their Homemade Bread counter located at the end of the buffet spread. All the freshly bake and hearty loaves of bread are display on the shelf and you can even turn some of the mini bun into burger or pick a slice or two of the bread and toast it for soup.

Some of the savory items at the buffet spread such as Omurice, Eggplant Gratin, Fried Chicken, Potato Wedges, Fried Prawn, Salad Green and etc.

Their pizza is freshly made by the chef and served on the buffet spread and it comes with both sweet and savory type. And you can see on the photo, the "red pillar" is the pizza oven which is similar to what they used in some Italian pizza restaurant.

The base of their pizza is thin and crispy type where you don't get to stuff yourself with all the flour base. Too bad, I did not get a chance to try out their Chocolate Almond Pizza that I think I will leave it till my next visit.

Some of the savory food that I have take a Shot from another food blogger - The Hungry Cow plate as I was busying tasting all my favour desserts shown below.

Array of mini Mousse Cakes at Let's Sweets such as White Chocolate Mousse, Coffee Zenzai, Green Tea Mousse, Chocolate Mousse, Cassi Mousse and etc. Each of it taste so yummy that you will sure go for more.

Another interesting item to look forward when dining at Let's Sweets is their famous Japanese street snack, " Dancing Yaki Mochi". The rice balls are slowly and evenly toasted to give a crunchy feel on the outside with a warm and flavourful feel on the inside.

These handmade Japanese Mochi are filled with five different flavours comprising of Sakura Cherry Blossoms, Red Bean, Miso, Black Sesame, Sweet Potatoes that rolled into perfect little balls. Out of the 5 different flavours, I love the Red Bean and Sweet Potato. The texture of the outer skin is so crispy and yet when you starts to eat, it is so chewy and bursting with sweet flavour.

Although I am not a fan when comes to Crepe but this on-the-spot handmade dessert has actually caught my attention with it's beautiful display. Let’s Sweets features about 3 different flavour of Crepes such as Mix Berries, Chocolate Banana and Caramel Apple.

This Mix Berries Crepe is freshly made upon order and served with a scoop of vanilla ice cream and mix berries sauce which definitely able to melt your heart with this on hot summer afternoon.

This is a cold version of Crème brûlée known as "Custard Pudding" for their menu. If you are a fan of this dessert, do pick up a cup or two satisfy your crave.

Tart Aux Poire is actually "Baked Pear Tart With Almond Cream Base", but for those who don't fancy the taste of almond, don't worry this tart taste great with grind almond as one of the ingredients rather perfuming the tarts with almond essence taste. This is a great choice to go with a cup of tea for afternoon break and relax with a couple of pages of your favourite book.

One can definitely enjoy a robust sugar journey at Let's Sweets without a hefty price tag. Beside, extending 60 minutes for lunch and 80 minutes for dinner for each diner will ensure that each patron has his pleasurable moment at the divine spread. So if you are wondering where to go for Buffet this coming National Day Long Weekend, perhaps you can consider your choice at this newly open Japanese Style Dessert Buffet restaurant at Bugis Junction.

  12. Nice food, but not if u are planning to have a nice chit chat with friends. Was running a heart attack watching the timer tick by, which was set to ring loudly at 50mins point to remind u that u have 10mins left, when we made a final mad dash to try the dishes that we had not yet done so. Not enough time for 2nd helpings, and we spent almost 10mins waiting for the crepe which was rather disappointing. (They had just one pan cooking 1 crepe at a time so u kinda have to waste time queuing). Had to gobble up the food real fast, and had indigestion afterwards. Not for slow eaters! Food were ok, without the WOW factor, amongst the yummier are: Soya rice w curry, sphagetti, potato wedges, mango pudding, raspberry cake. Just my experience!

  13. Hi Ling,
    Thanks for sharing your dining experience on Let's Sweets with us. I totally agreed with you that this is not a place for chit chat but rather more for a meal like any fast food restaurant. And I guess we can't really ask for hotel quality of "food/desserts" with the affordable price of less than S$20 to enjoy so many varieties of choices :)

    As for the timing, i personally think that mb they only look into those lunch/dinner timing which they thought 1hrs is just nice :) for me who goes only for desserts... this is alrite but i guess for those who wants to try all have to wait for their "High-Tea Buffet" that might be launching soon.....

  15. Hi,

    Thanks for the reply. Yup I agree the price is very reasonable so can't pick too much. If only they have another set of pricing for normal buffet(without the timer!) then the experience will be so much better.

    Good job on the photos & post, thanks for sharing :)

  17. i wouldnt try it again... food does not taste that good, food refill is slow also. everytime i went to the food counter, it is always left with last few portions or EMPTY! there is only marshmallows & green apples at the choc fondue station. how disappointing...

    ReplyDelete
  18. Ling: Thanks for yr kind words :)

    Foodaholic: Hi! Main Dish is only available in Dinner Buffet. Sorry I am not sure about the wastage charges. The desserts is in the chiller but there will be staffs serving u over at the counter de... no worries.

    Anonymous: Sorry about yr bad encounter. I guess becos of the restricted timing, ppl tends to scoop more on their plates to prevent walking up and down. Hope the mangement will do something better, did you feeback to them...... :)

  20. Hi Flora, So sorry to hear that you have some bad experience with the dessert counter perhaps they have run out of those items and did not managed to repenish them in time.

  21. Last Sat I was dining at Let's Sweet with a couple of friends. I find the serving staff annoying. There are a few Filippino waitresses and waiters chatting with each other loudly in their language across the restaurant. My feeling is that either they don't respect the dinners or they are treating the restaurant like a market place where they talk loudly and ignoring the guests at the restaurant!

  22. I am going for dinner in 'Lets Sweets' tonight!! :D Thanks for the info~

  23. Well, I think they give too little time for my friend and I to taste out all their food.
