    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 initial-time visitor, nevertheless, 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, right 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-meals and Hawker-centre delicacies in an elegant hotel environment. The rich spread boasts many local favorites that represents Singapore’s numerous ethnicities, including Beef Rendang, Satay, Chili prawns, Hainanese Chicken Rice, Laksa and Tandoori Chicken, just to name a couple of…Should-try desserts include 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 more than the Wall” soup.Subsequent in line, and just a couple of actions away, is Carousel, in the Royal Plaza on Scotts, which has not been about for too lengthy, but has already made a name for itself as one of the most sought following buffets in Singapore. Fresh seafood, sushi and sashimi appear to be the primary 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 makes it a great option for Muslims.Nonetheless within the exact same region, Shangri-la’s Line Restaurant serves what should be the biggest, richest and most diverse buffet in Singapore, boasting 16 culinary stations that serve each delicacy you can possibly believe 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 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 Very best Buffet in Singapore title… There are several gastronomic stations right here that prepare each western and oriental delicacies, from fresh seafood and cold cuts to a selection of a-la-minute meat dishes and what not… And you can either dine indoors or ‘alfresco’, by the poolside.Last but not least is the Weekend Champagne Dim Sum Brunch at Mandarin Oriental’s Cherry Garden Restaurant, and even though it is only served on weekends, it is well worth waiting for… Their delicately hand-crafted dim sums and roasted Kurobuta-pork are most likely the best in town, and you can also enjoy free flow of champagne and very pleasant ambience… Who can ask for something much more?Sight our online AROY JING JING gallery.
