J.W Marriott Strawberry Buffet with Barbie

J.W Marriott Strawberry Buffet with Barbie

The Lounge at J.W Marriott Dongdaemun

It’s that time of year in Seoul where many of the major hotels are having their strawberry buffet.  The J.W MARRIOTT Hotel in Dongdaemun offered their buffet in collaboration with Barbie. (Salon de Ddalki)

Reservations are a must, and expect to make them 3-4 weeks in advance.

The Strawberry Buffet is located at the lobby lounge and looks to accommodate about 50 people.

Each table had their own unique classic (and vintage) Barbie.

Once seated, we were given the menu to order one main dish and a drink.

Let’s take a look at the buffet!

Where should I begin?? Yum!

There are quite a variety of different strawberry desserts ranging from cupcakes, sandwiches, custards, tarts, biscotti… I’ll let the photos do the talking.

Our drinks and main dish …yum! The portion size was a bit small, but the food was extremely satisfying.

Afterwards, we finished our meal with either coffee or tea along with some scones and strawberry sauce.

And to top it off, how fun is this? you have your very own Barbie Box.

Over all, I was very pleased at Salon de DDalki. The atmosphere was nice, and because it didn’t have many seating’s, the atmosphere was quiet and spacious. I also thought that the price was quite reasonable, all you can eat desserts, a drink, main dish and lastly coffee and scones. I do need to mention that they seemed a little understaffed and did take quite some effort to grab the waiter’s attention. With that said, if you have the opportunity to check out the strawberry buffet and JW Marriott, I would recommend it!
