Kushi Dining Bar – Premium Japanese A La Carte Buffet at the Hotel Royal!

Singaporeans sure do love their buffets. And it is always a great pleasure to recommend a Japanese buffet to all my readers out there. It is the excitement of indulging in an extensive array of Shabu Shabu, Sashimi, Sushi, Maki Mono, Tempura, Yakimono, Agemono, Kushiyaki and more all in a single sitting. To top it all off, this buffet restaurant will also serve premium items and dishes that are a notch above the regular buffet menu. Kushi Dining Bar at the Hotel Royal has been serving up its Japanese a la carte buffet since 2009. Having moved to its new location just a half year back, the restaurant is now reaching out to regulars and new guests with an extensive menu of over 130 dishes with well loved favourites as well as new additions to excite the palate.

With a little touch of fun, communal spirit, and hearty portions, The Halia at the Raffles Hotel is set to present to diners a Communal Feast menu on top of the restaurant’s existing delectable spread. Ideal for sharing among four friends, be prepared to indulge in at least 10 – 12 contemporary, flavourful dishes prepared fresh from the kitchen. Inspired by the traditional dining concept in Asian culture whereby family members gather to eat with dishes placed in the centre of the table, the Halia’s communal feast menu goes the distance with a selection of large sized servings and even larger helpings of shared fun. For this exciting spread, guests can choose between the ‘Light’ (10 courses; $160++) or ‘Hearty’ (12 courses; $270++) menus. […]

5th – 21st Sep: York Hotel’s Penang Hawkers’ Fare Buffet From $25.80++!

The Penang Hawkers’ Fare Buffet at the York Hotel is a legacy in its own right. With its inception in 1986, the Penang Hawkers’ Buffet is currently in its 28th year. Held approximately two to three times a year with the Penang Hawkers invited in each time, this is one buffet spread with a selection of 10-11 authentic Penang dishes that is probably the closest you can get in Singapore without having to visit Penang itself. Available during both lunch and dinner, the Penang Hawkers’ Buffet is on a first-come-first-serve basis with no reservations allowed. Within the main dining area, snaking queues from each stall stall quickly form, proving to be a slight wait before one is allowed to partake in a gratifying dish fresh to serve. To add to the complexity, each guest can only pick up 2 servings each visit. So if you in it for that famed Orh-luack, you might want to be prepared for multiple trips and a decent wait. […]
