Recently visited the restaurant which was currently having 2-for-2 dinner buffet promotion. The restaurant was updating its menu and currently without pork or lard as it would be getting Halal certified soon. This was great as there was limited number of hotel buffet restaurants which were Halal certified in Singapore.
Although it was an international buffet spread, the choices here was slightly limited comparing to the more expensive restaurants with just 2 rows of spread.
Everyone's favourite section was the Dessert Station, especially the durian part which consisted of Durian Tart, Durian Crepe, Durian Pengat, Durian Fudge Cake and Durian Puff, but the must have item was the Durian Pengat which was served in shooter style. Rich in fresh which made the other durian desserts pale in comparison.
Pulut Hitam was another dessert which I would recommeded as the version here had dried longan and orange peel in it which gave the sweet soup an unique taste.
For the that day, the Noodle Station offered Penang White Curry Noodle and Ipoh Hor Fun which tasted kind of bland. Kind of sad that the popular Laksa was not available.
The Street Delights (Live Station) offered Fried Sambal Seafood which was one could selected seafood and vegetables to be stir fried, as well as, Claypot Curry Fish Cheek. Sambal sotong with onions was a good choice with the spicy seafood pairing with the sweetness from the onion.
From the Mains, the Lamb Curry was surprisingly tasty without the usual gamy taste. Most will target for the Chilli Lobster which was the usual Chilli Crab replace with lobster. Don't forget to get some bread to dip the sauce with. By the way the Truffle Butter next to the Bread Basket was umami.
The double boiled soup of the day was Ginseng Chicken Soup was light and flavourful with tender pieces of meat in it.
If you preferred something hand on, there would Kueh Pie Tee with its light crispy shells stuffed with braised vegetables, topped with prawns, eggs, and coriander.
Not forgetting the Seafood on Ice section which had Tiger Prawn, Clam, Mussel, Flower Crab, Yabbies and Oyster.
Overall there was bits for everyone although the spread looked limited. One was stuffed at the end of the meal. Don't forget to wash down the meal with a cup of Teh Tarik which was milky and not too sweet. Although the tiny table was overcrowded with plates, the staff often came over to clear.
