As I did not eat my breakfast (typical Singaporean style before going for a lunch buffet), I quickly went over to the self-serve section to help myself with some food before I got overly starved. The meat only arrive based on time interval, due to the time needed for grilling.
First slab of meat arrived and I seriously loved it! It was slightly chewy due to a little fats in there, and it was certainly dripping with meaty juices. Beef that I had slight difficulty eating. The meat kept getting stuck in my teeth and prolonged chewing made me rather lazy to keep up with the movement. These plump sausages were a hit among the four of us! I had 3 and I found that it was very mildly spicy. The mutton was one of my favourite too. I enjoyed the natural mutton taste and smell and I ate 3 pieces too! Fats (from the mutton)? They were the ones that contributed to its chewiness and juiciness. You should be prepared to have some fats intake the moment you stepped into carnivore. (Not that they serve fats but meat sure have fats!) Too much meat made our tummy felt rather bloated and uncomfortable, and we gladly invited the acidity and sweetness of the roasted pineapple into them. I could not helped it but to think that the pineapple actually acted as enzymes to break down the meat! We normally thought that watercress soup supposed to be clear and we were so wrong that day. It turned out to be slightly creamy (not exceedingly) and had many bits of watercress in it. I liked it so much that I drank 3 bowls! (I should stop typing out the amount I ate!)
Do not be like me and take so much coleslaw before trying. I regretted it because it was so sour and I could not finish it. I
liked the beetroot as it tasted sweet and sour at the same time. By the way, the baby octopus were really salty that day!
As for the fish, I expected it to be salty, just like the first time I ate at Vivocity. I was so right and I shared a piece with my friend. It was rather tender but had that fishy smell. The bacon with chicken breast finally came. It was always fully taken even before reaching our table (for the first few rounds). To my disappointment, it was horribly hard and had the strong garlicky taste which pricked my tongue constantly. We actually longed for something which tasted bad when the chicken thighs tasted much more heavenly. Anyway, they also have chicken heart upon request.
