Long Weekend Tunch at Indulge at Park @ Grand Park City Hall (Media Tasting)

After having the dumplings from Park Palace, also located at Grand Park City Hall, I could not wait to see what Indulge at Park had in store for us. We were invited to try their Long Weekend Tunch (which stands for lunch and tea), available every Saturday and Sunday afternoon till 28 September 2015.

The weekend afternoon buffet costs $45++ for adults and $22.50++ for children (4 to 12 years old). The spread encompasses 80 items, carriying both lunch and tea favourites, such as Hong Kong roast duck, Penang rojak and kueh pie tee.

I planned to reach early to take undisturbed photographs of the food and it was a great call because the desserts looked so pretty!

The Best of Thai @ One Farrer Hotel & Spa (Media Tasting)

Thanks to Derrick of SgFoodonFoot, I was invited to a sneak peak at The Best of Thai buffet at Escape Restaurant & Lounge at One Farrer Hotel & Spa. This buffet is going to be held for a limited time only, from 2 to 16 April 2015, and it is a special collaboration between the hotel, and Guest Chef Aek Charttrakul and his team from the Thailand Culinary Academy.

We got a special demonstration by the chef himself how to make Som Tum (spicy papaya salad). He showed us the important ingredients like shredded papaya, dried shrimps, chilli padi, lime, fish sauce, garlic, etc. Chef also mentioned the difference between pounding the ingredients and gently mashing them to bring out the flavours.

Manbok Chinatown Korean BBQ & Steamboat Buffet Restaurant

This is going to be a very short post! School has just started so I am still getting into the swing of things, making it difficult to take time out to blog.

Sis and I checked out Manbok Chinatown Korean BBQ Buffet Restaurant during the weekend. It is a stone’s throw away from Chinatown MRT Station and it scored well on Hungrygowhere.

The restaurant offers both marinated and non-marinated meat, like pork collar, chuck tender, chicken thigh and chicken breast. On top of that, they also serve cooked food like jap chae (Korean glass noodles) and ddeokbokki (Korean rice cakes), not to forget the typical steamboat offerings of ramen, vegetables, etc.

Lunch Buffet at Lime @ PARKROYAL on Pickering

Untitled2

Being a small eater, I was not very agreeable when my sis suggested having buffet for lunch. I could never eat my money’s worth. However, she insisted that Lime @ PARKROYAL on Pickering had excellent reviews and it was noted for its modern and upscale architecture.

And boy was she right! Look at all the lovely floor to ceiling windows, letting in all the gorgeous natural lighting. Also, the setting was very comfortable and welcoming. The buffet had an awesome spread and we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves.

Fatty Choo International Steamboat Buffet

Untitled

Just a few days ago, my mum noticed that there is a buffet place at West Coast Plaza which is quite affordable, so she brought us down to try it. It costs only $18.80+ for a weekday lunch buffet. What’s more, you can have a choice of up to two soups (yuan yang style where a steamboat is split into two halves). Other than the usual tom yum and chicken soup, they offer Japanese bonito and a more local flavour, bak kut teh.

On the way there, I did some research. Apparently their BKT soup base did not receive any rave reviews and patrons usually opt for one of the other three soups. Another thing I found out was that Chef Choo was from Straits Cafe @ Rendezvous and was responsible for the yummy nonya laksa, and that I can expect to taste the laksa at the buffet!

Champagne Brunch at The Knolls, Capella Singapore

Untitled2

Here I am breaking the monotony of my Greece posts with a food one. I had the pleasure of dining at The Knolls at Capella, Singapore, with Seth and Melissa some time back. It was an exquisite Sunday Brunch and we (literally) wined and dined!

I must also apologise beforehand for the quality of my pictures as I was using my sister’s DSLR (she borrowed my point and shoot for diving), so I was fumbling my way around, but I thought some of the shots came out pretty well.

I can assure you that the setting and the food will sweep you off your feet. We sat at a table next to the windows. Not only did that allow for penetration of natural light (good for taking pictures), we could also take in the scenery and the few peacocks strolling along outside.

The selection of food is very wide here. I think what was also notable was that in addition to the wide variety, they did not cut back on their quality of food.

High Tea at the Rose Veranda, Shangri-La Hotel

Untitled16

Sis introduced a new place for high tea to me! It is none other than Rose Veranda at Shangri-La Hotel. We did not really choose an appropriate time to go as they were having the Shangri-La Dialogue there during that period. Hence, the security was really tight and there were many dignitaries around. However, we got a good deal and I will tell how you can get it too!

The Rose Veranda is located on the second floor, which is easily accessible through their huge winding staircase or via the lift. It is very spacious, with floor-to-ceiling windows, affording guests a view of the lush greenery outside.

The place mat and setting provided were very dainty. I simply adored the little floral prints on the napkins, cups and saucers.
