Being avid turophiles, the first thing Raina and I grabbed was a full plate of various cheese, fruit and crackers that completed each other.
Albeit, my love for cheese is unmatched by my insatiable sweet tooth. Imagine my reaction when I first laid my eyes on their assorted dessert station! I got weak in the knees, and then proceeded to fill my mouth because there wasn’t enough room on my plate.
Like a kid in a candy store, I gleefully pranced the aisles taking every kind of churro I can find. They’ve got a whole rack of flavored churros! The fat kid inside me was crying tears of joy.
Our friends found it amusing that I am able to devour large cream puffs with one bite. I’m not ashamed of my skills to efficiently consume pastries. I am a sugar fiend.
On the savory side, their seafood station offers a sumptuous selection of mussels, scallops, prawns, etc. Friday nights are seafood night! With its themed buffet every week, Hotel Jen’s Latitude is sure to please any crowd:
