What Buffet in Singapore Is Really the Best?4015375
Singapore, one of Asia's gourmet capitals, is recognized for its endless dining options and, especially, for its outstanding buffet spreads, which attract gourmands from far and wide. For a first-time visitor, however, all this choice can be a little confusing and that is precisely why I wrote this post, which is just like a mini-guide to Singapore's best buffets.
Prepare your appetite - The feast is about to start...
Straits Kitchen is housed within the swish Grand Hyatt, correct close to the corner of Orchard and Scotts, in the heart of the city, and is probably the only buffet in Singapore that serves the best of the city's street-food and Hawker-centre delicacies in an sophisticated hotel atmosphere. The rich spread boasts many local favorites that represents Singapore's many ethnicities, including Beef Rendang, Satay, Chili prawns, Hainanese Chicken Rice, Laksa and Tandoori Chicken, just to name a couple of...
Must-try desserts consist of Almond Jelly, Banana Fritters, Mango pudding and the ultimate Durian ice-cream.
This is also one of the very best buffets in Singapore for classy dishes, like the "Buddha Jumps over the Wall" soup.
Next in line, and just a couple of steps away, is Carousel, in the Royal Plaza on Scotts, which has not been around for as well lengthy, but has already made a name for itself as one of the most sought after buffets in Singapore. Fresh seafood, sushi and sashimi seem to be the main draw right here, but there is also a decent choice of salads, Asian dishes, Rotisserie meats and, of course, lovely desserts and freshly baked pastries to accompany the coffee... Carousel is also Halal certified, which tends to make it a good choice for Muslims.
Still within the same area, Shangri-la's Line Restaurant serves what should be the biggest, richest and most diverse buffet in Singapore, boasting 16 culinary stations that serve every delicacy you can possibly think of, from fresh seafood and sushi to scrumptious pizzas, pasta dishes and other Italian fare, and from Indian tandoori specialties to mouthwatering desserts... It is slightly pricy, as you might expect from a Shangri-la restaurant, but is a head above the rest.
Nestled inside the Meritus Mandarin Hotel, on Orchard Road, the International buffet at Triple 3 (the buffet restaurant) gives difficult competition to Shangri-la and is an additional severe candidate for the Best Buffet in Singapore title... There are several gastronomic stations right here that prepare both western and oriental delicacies, from fresh seafood and cold cuts to a variety of a-la-minute meat dishes and what not... And you can either dine indoors or 'alfresco', by the poolside.
