Corn Exchange, Darling Harbour

It's a tradition of ours that we compound Christmas gluttony with one final blow-out... the Boxing Day Buffet.

We headed to the Corn Exchange Restaurant at the Sheraton Four Points for all-you-can-eat seafood, sushi, hot dishes, salads and yes, plenty of desserts.

Options here were endless: Soup of the day, fresh breads, pappadums to start or should you head straight for the seafood?

Seafood on offer here included smoked salmon with capers, oysters, prawns, balmain bugs, blue swimmer crab, calamari salad and mussels with salsa. They also had sashimi salmon, tuna and kingfish not to mention nigiri sushi with prawns, eel, salmon and tamago.

Balmain bugs

Hot dishes included baby veal, steamed salmon, vegetable lasagna, satay chicken, roast potatoes and vegetable ratatouille. The cold selection included cold deli meats, char-grilled vegetables, blanched asparagus, quiche, pickled sardines, potato salads, green bean salads, pasta salads and green leafy salads.

Phew! A few minutes to loosen the belt and catch your breath before you head for the grand finale...a diabetic's nightmare of cream, chocolate and sugar glorious sugar. Chocolate cakes, tiramisu, warm Christmas pud with custard, cheesecakes, roulades, white christmas, lamingtons...*sigh* It was heaven...

For those with less of a sweet tooth (unfathomable!), there was plenty of fresh fruit, nuts, dried fruit, crackers and a cheese platter to pick from.

We resisted the urge to sneak this giant gingerbread house into our handbags...

And so as well rolled out the door on distended bellies, we leave the marzipan Santa convention to discuss the feast-fest for next year (and yes, that is sugar packet snow).

The Corn Exchange offers a regular buffet as well as an a-la-carte menu. We paid $55 for lunch for all-you-can-eat decadent goodness.
