What Buffet in Singapore Is Truly the Best?450127
Singapore, one of Asia's gourmet capitals, is known for its endless dining options and, particularly, 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 exactly why I wrote this article, which is just like a mini-guide to Singapore's best buffets.
Prepare your appetite - The feast is about to begin...
Straits Kitchen is housed inside the swish Grand Hyatt, correct near 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, such as Beef Rendang, Satay, Chili prawns, Hainanese Chicken Rice, Laksa and Tandoori Chicken, just to name a few...
Must-attempt desserts include Almond Jelly, Banana Fritters, Mango pudding and the ultimate Durian ice-cream.
This is also one of the 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 about for as well long, 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 here, but there is also a decent option of salads, Asian dishes, Rotisserie meats and, of course, beautiful desserts and freshly baked pastries to accompany the coffee... Carousel is also Halal certified, which makes it a great choice for Muslims.
Nonetheless inside the same area, Shangri-la's Line Restaurant serves what should be the greatest, richest and most diverse buffet in Singapore, boasting 16 culinary stations that serve each 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 may anticipate 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 competitors to Shangri-la and is an additional severe candidate for the Very best Buffet in Singapore title... There are a number of gastronomic stations 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.
