The problem, if you can call it that, is where to start with the La Vie En Rose brunch at Le Meridien.

Before picking up plates, my companion and I are given a tour by Chef Eric, a member of the small army in the kitchen that prepares the weekly feast.

Eric walks us around the banquet explaining what's on offer. We start by the Italian station with a selection of fresh pasta and move on to the roasts-pork, lamb, beef, chicken. The meats jostle for room with piles of roast vegetables and a tray of mashed potato so tempting it might force us to break the first rule of buffets (no carbs, too filling).

We detour to the Indian section, tandoori lamb and a variety of curry vegetable dishes. There is a dim-sum station, noodles, cheese, sashimi, crayfish, antipasto, salads. Just when you think you've seen it all you realize there is a selection of breads and muffins tucked in the corner, an oyster-shucking station hidden behind the hamburger stand and a goose-liver station by the windows.
