Guam Diner Bytes: Buffet Dining at La Seine
It’s a brand new dining experience at La Seine, Lotte Hotel Guam’s signature restaurant that serves breakfast, lunch and dinner buffets to hotel guests and local residents. One can’t help but be impressed by the ultra-modern food displays and interior design of this restaurant, which bears no resemblance to the coffee shop located there previously.
We had an opportunity to stop by for lunch one day (Lunch buffet cost $28 and dinner is $40) and were dazzled by the spectacular view of Tumon that stretches across the window wall of La Seine. Although the name is the same as the famous river in Paris, the cuisine is international. There are live cooking and prep stations for sushi, sashimi, pasta, soups (noodle), tempura, carving, and Mongolian stir fry. Be sure to save room for their glamorous desserts...they are attractively created and don’t disappoint.
One thing that’s evident is the freshness and quality of ingredients. They are making a strong effort to put their best foot forward. I was also quite pleased to see so many former GCC culinary students manning the prep and cooking stations. We had intended to stop by for one of their nightly theme dinner buffets but were unable to prior to publication. They are completely ready to serve morning, day, and night. Welcome to La Seine!
