Last Saturday evening I dined at Oceans 999 inside the Pan Pacific Hotel for their Italian Opera Buffet. I was invited by the Pan Pacific to come and experience their Italian Opera night, it was my first time back in over 7 years, this unique dinner with live opera singers runs every Saturday night, this popular weekly dinner has been running for well over 20 years.

Began the meal with a selection of salads and antipasti from the appetizer station, favourites here were the Tomato Caprese, grilled vegetables, and focaccia. Next was a visit to the entrée station where I had Halibut and Trout, Lamb in jus along with Vegetarian Canelloni which were all delicious; from here I visited the live Pasta station and the Chef prepared a dish of wholewheat fusilli with shrimp, chicken, sun dried tomatoes, peas and tomato sauce. The last station was the dessert station where I loved the Raspberry Linzer Torte and the Caramel flan; while enjoying dinner, the two opera singers sang Italian opera for our listening pleasure with piano accompaniment.

Italian Opera Buffet Dinner happens every Saturday night from 6pm-9pm and is $57 per person.
