One of the newest additions to Plaza Singapura’s long list of eateries is 1 Market by Chef Wan. This spacious 450-seater buffet restaurant features an extensive offering of dishes inspired by Chef’s travels throughout Southeast Asia (let’s talk Vietnam, Indonesia, Cambodia, Thailand, and Singapore).
Take a food trip inside this restaurant and you will find different cuisines organised into sections like the Nyonya Peranakan, Vietnamese, and Japanese. There also seem to be a number of sauces to match the delectable feast prepared daily. Be warned, though, that most of these are quite spicy for an average person! So if you can’t handle some chilli, just skip these. Anyway, the offerings are already good on their own.
