Café Mosaic @ Carlton Hotel Singapore

Category : Buffet, International, Promotions

I had my second Christmas buffet gathering at Café Mosaic @ Carlton Hotel Singapore.

This is the first time we’re having our annual Christmas dinner here and the good thing is, Café Mosaic is offering a credit card promotion of 1 dines free with 3 paying diners.

So we only have to pay $51.8 each. Good deal 😀

Café Mosaic’s Christmas offerings weren’t as good as 10@Claymore Pan Pacific Orchard Hotel. I was missing 10 @ Claymore’s Turkey Escalope while digging into Café Mosaic’s Roasted Turkey 😛

Anyway, one of Carlton Hotel’s buffet highlights is their Baby Lobster and here it is on my plate of seafood.

Armed with my fork and spoon, I started to work on my baby lobster and it was just too much effort for a little piece of meat that’s smaller than my fingernail. Next~

However, I have to say, I really enjoyed Café Mosaic’s Tuna Ceviche. It was all gone when I wanted to go back for more 🙁

In its place was Tomato with Cheese which was also awesome.

I was excited to see cereal prawn amongst Café Mosaic’s offerings alas it was not crispy. Most probably because it wasn’t kept warm? Its Fish with Soya Sauce was also quite tough too.

I took a bite out of my friends’ rojak and it was pretty good. Though I would prefer my “you tiao” heated beforehand for that extra crispiness. The option is there but she prefer hers soft so it’s just individual preference.

And last but not least, desserts 😀

Café Mosaic’s tiramisu was great! I would have taken more if I wasn’t so stuffed by now. I enjoyed their Raspberry Cake & Brownie too. The latter was very rich.

How can I forget Carlton Hotel’s Durian Pengat which saw my friend going back for more than a few times 😉 It was okay for me and personally, I still prefer Straits Cafe @ Rendezvous Hotel’s.

We had a great time stuffing ourselves with food while catching up with each other, laughing the evening away. We did notice that Café Mosaic’s surrounding was very loud as we had to raise our voices to make ourselves heard.

But the definitive moment was when my team lead commented that we couldn’t hear my manager’s laughter, which set us all laughing away. Hahaha~

10@Claymore Pan Pacific Orchard Hotel

Category : Buffet, International, Promotions

Time for Christmas feasting again! 😀

Considering my age, thankfully there were only 2 hotel buffet feasting sessions during this Christmas season. Especially since I aspire to try everything at the buffet, as much as possible 😛

First stop, 10@Claymore at Pan Pacific Orchard Hotel.

Thanks to HSBC Credit Card Promotion, we enjoyed 25% off our total bill. This reduced 10@Claymore hotel buffet from S$42++ to S$31.5++. Sweet~

10@Claymore 03

And sweet it was. Wow wow wow at 10@Claymore’s desserts, all nicely decorated with Christmas ornaments. All screaming, “Eat me!”

10@Claymore 35

The shutterbug in me simply couldn’t resist giving each of them a close up shot 😀

10@Claymore 41

10@Claymore 42

I enjoyed most of Pan Pacific Hotel buffet’s desserts except for their shot glass puddings & their durian cake which reminds me of the long brown durian cake/stick/paste. Artificial.

Of course, I’m more demanding when it comes to durian being an unwavering bitter Mao Shan Wang (Mountain Cat) consumer. So my opinion could be biased, similar to my critique of Concorde Spices Café Peranakan Buffet’s Otah.

10@Claymore 39

There were also feedbacks that the yellow & brown layered cake was very sour. It is indeed pretty sour and I kind of enjoyed the slightly torturous sourly kick 😛

10@Claymore 36

Being a tea-lover, Pan Pacific Orchard Hotel really won me over with their Artisan Selection of Gryphon Tea at its buffet. How I wish I could try them all!

10@Claymore 49

I’m usually underwhelmed by hotel buffets’ Christmas seasonal dishes. Hats off to 10@Claymore for winning me over!

For the 1st time ever, I helped myself to a 2nd serving of Christmas Honey Baked Ham!

10@Claymore 09

10@Claymore also has a Festive Season Plates of Pleasure Menu for us to order (repeatedly).

10@Claymore 50

This is the 1st time I enjoyed my Turkey. Their deep fried Turkey Escalope won thumbs up from around the table. Yummy! If only I have space for another serving 🙁

10@Claymore 53

Other dishes I enjoyed were 10@Claymore’s Baked Beer Drumlet & Seared Salmon with Pesto Cream Sauce. Especially the Salmon.

10@Claymore 10

10@Claymore 11

Needless to say, all of us enjoyed our team lunch at 10@Claymore. Their service was also impeccable. We were well taken care of with just the right degree/amount of attention. Their chef even posed for me when he spotted me taking photos 😀

10@Claymore 30

Thanks Pan Pacific Orchard Hotel for the great meal, my teammate for organising and everyone for the great company! 😉

Oh, for sashimi lovers, 10@Claymore has both salmon and salmon tummy sashimi.

Spices Café Peranakan Buffet @ Concorde Hotel Singapore

Category : Buffet, Local Singapore Food, Promotions

Peranakan food isn’t a cuisine type I’m particularly familiar with, and hence not my 1st choice when it comes to food.

So it was really a rare opportunity, for me personally, when our team decided to lunch at Spices Café @ Concorde Hotel Singapore, to experience Peranakan food, buffet style.

Peranakan Buffet @ Spices Café serves up a very different variety of food, compared to other hotel buffets I’ve tried.

Firstly, the usual cold seafood section is absent. No salad either and in its place is a do-it-yourself fruit rojak section. Very interesting~

And (sadly) no cakes either. In its place are local delights like Bean Curd, Putu Mayam, a wide variety of Nonya Kueh and a do it yourself shaved ice machine, with a variety of toppings to customize your very own Ice Jelly and Ice Chendol.

What really got me excited were these little glasses of durian pengat, which instantly brought me back to Rendezvous Hotel and their yummy durian pengat.

I love and miss Rendezvous Hotel’s durian pengat. Alas the higher the expectations, the harder the fall…luckily I only took 1 durian pengat to start off with.

Moving on to the other sections, I enjoyed Spices Café’s Popiah & Kueh Pie Tee. It’ll be even better if the chef could spread more brown/sweet sauce for the Popiah 🙂

Being a huge fan of satay and otah, I personally have very high standards for these 2 items. So not surprisingly, Spices Café Peranakan Buffet’s version falls short, from my point of view. Especially their otah.

However, their main dishes section won me over with quite a few yummy dishes that made me go back for more!

Spices Café’s Lembu Rendang is especially tender and flavourful without any 羊骚味 (I tried translating this online and I almost laughed my head off because it was translated as Sheep Grievance). My best effort translation will be sheep-y, like fishy…Sorry guys~

Spices Café’s Babi Buah Keluak is also superbly marinated and stewed to perfection, tenderness.

Last but not least, the hugely popular Udang Asam. Thumb Up! The prawns are actually black in colour. And they are absolutely delicious. I would have gotten a 2nd helping if they weren’t flying off the plate so fast 😛

Dining Promotion @ Spices Café
For your information, we were there to enjoy the OCBC Credit Card Promotion where 1 dines free with every 3 paying adults.

We were also informed that there is an ongoing promotion for senior citizens, which explains why the restaurant was filled with seniors. We thought there was an event going on 🙂

Peony Jade Keppel Club Chinese New Year Ala Carte Dim Sum Buffet

Category : Buffet, Chinese, Dim Sum, Promotions

恭喜发财!新年快乐!Gong Xi Fa Cai! Happy Chinese New Year!

Are you all prepared for the feastings, gatherings and “interrogations”? 🙂

I definitely enjoy the feastings and gatherings and my 1st Chinese New Year themed event this year is lunch at Peony Jade @ Keppel Club.

Check out this awesome Chinese New Year display at Keppel Club. So festive~

The interior & stage of Peony Jade @ Keppel Club is pretty eye catching as well. I couldn’t resist making my way to the front to take this photo.

Despite having patronized Peony Jade countless times, this is my 1st Ala Carte Dim Sum Buffet @ Peony Jade Keppel Club.

I’ve been meaning to try Peony Jade’s Dim Sum for quite some time now so I’m ecstatic! Plus Peony Jade now has an amazing Chinese New Year Promotion where their Ala Carte Dim Sum Buffet includes Chinese New Year dishes as well.

1st dish of the meal is of course Peony Jade’s Prosperity Atlantic Salmon Lou Hei (Yusheng) with Caviar (发财三文鱼鱼子捞起). I’m not sure about the Caviar but I’m happy with the thick slices of salmon.

The server prepared the Yusheng for us coupled with auspicious greetings and it’s chopsticks action time! We grabbed our long chopsticks and start tossing the Yusheng while chanting our “wishes”. Though it’s mostly “Huat Ah”! 发啊

The portion of Yusheng is huge and we didn’t stop the server from pouring in the entire bowl of oil and sweet sauce so even though the 1st few mouthfuls are nice & crunchy, I quickly get tired of the sweetness of the dish.

So, word of advice, if you aren’t into sweet yusheng, limit the sweet sauce.

Another Chinese New Year dish is Peony Jade’s Hong Kong Style Deep Fried “Soon Hock” Fish with Light Soy Sauce (港式油浸笋壳). We love this dish. Thumbs up. It’s crispy on the outside and yet the fish meat beneath is still moist. Nice~

Back to the theme of Dim Sum Buffet. Yes, buffet. So, we courageously ordered every item in the Dim Sum section, except for one – Fried Raddish Cake with Beansprouts in XO Sauce.

Personally I love the Pan Fried Carrot Cake with Preserved Meat (腊味煎萝卜糕). It’s soft and moist with a nice flavour from the Preserved Meat. I’ll gladly have another serving if there’s space in my stomach 😛

Peony Jade’s Steamed Black Eye Bean Cake with Ham and Radish (蒸眉豆糕) is a different type of dim sum. Maybe I’ll coin it as creative? It’s lightly flavoured with an interesting texture. Maybe some gelatin was added? It’s nice as well.

Peony Jade’s Steamed Har Kau (水晶鲜虾铰) has a relatively thin & translucent skin with 2 juicy &chewy prawns within. Not bad as well.

What’s Har Kau without Siew Mai. Peony Jade’s Steamed Siew Mai aka Pork & Shrimp Dumpling (烧卖) is pretty decent and it’s good that there’s no fatty meat. At least not in the one I devoured.

Peony Jade’s Char Siew Chee Cheong Fun aka Rice Roll (叉烧肠粉) is quite good as well. The Chee Cheong Fun skin is soft and thin. I just wish there’s more char siew 😉

Another dish not commonly found in the category of Dim Sum is Peony Jade’s Hot & Sour Meat Dumpling (京川铰子). This dish has also gotten thumbs up from the table. It has a stimulating spicy flavour 😀

I quite like Peony Jade’s Steamed Beancurd Roll with Black Bean Sauce (豉汁鲜竹卷) as well.

The above 7 dishes are Dim Sum items I’ll order again.

Amongst the other dishes I’ve tried, I wasn’t wowed by Peony Jade’s Deep-Fried Dim Sum selection. And I dislike Peony Jade’s Baked Flaky ‘Cha Siew So’ topped with Chicken Floss (肉菘叉烧酥).

And out of the dishes I didn’t try, Steamed Custard and Salted Yolk Bao (香软奶皇流沙包) drew mixed reviews with comments that 黑社会’s version is nicer.

While Steamed Glutinous Rice in Lotus Leaf Parcel (荷香珍珠鸡) got a thumbs down.

All in all, it was still a nice meal with immense value. We definitely walked away with an immensely stuffed stomach.

Oh I almost forgot, skip the desserts 😉

Paradise Dynasty Szechuan Dishes Promotion

Category : Chinese, Promotions

I’m addicted! I can’t stop thinking about these yummy Szechuan dishes we had at Paradise Dynasty ever since we chanced upon their 30% off promotion for OCBC Cardholders and Paradise Gourmet Rewards members.

Also of course because they’re at such a steal!

I’ve already enjoyed these 30% off Szechuan dishes four times times and am thinking whether to have it one last time, before the promotion ends on 30 Dec 2014.

The 30% discount promotion is for Paradise Dynasty’s La Mian with Poached Marbled Beef in Szechuan Style, Poached Sliced Fish in Szechuan Chilli Oil, Pork Dumpling with Hot Chilli Vinaigrette, Steamed Szechuan Xiao Long Bao & Spicy Szechuan Crispy Chicken.

I’ve tried everything except for the first dish. And all I like 🙂

First up, and the most exciting dish of all – Poached Sliced Fish in Szechuan Chilli Oil (四川水煮鱼) @ S$14.56. Check out this enormous bowl of Soup/Chilli Oil!

I was too busy eating and gasping for air from the spice to take photos of what’s underneath this sea of chili. Sorry~ But there are sliced fish, glass noodles, big bean sprouts, black fungus & flat strips of dried tofu. This dish alone can feed 2 ladies.

You can choose your preferred spice level of 1 – 3 chillis. I had 2 chillis on every visit. Though we suspect we might have been served 3 chillis on one occasion as it was especially hot & spicy! Though very shiok, we had to order iced barley drinks to continue~

Next is Pork Dumpling with Hot Chilli Vinaigrette (红油抄手) @ S$4.48. I’ve liked this dish ever since trying it at Din Tai Fung (鼎泰丰). I didn’t quite like this dish at Crystal Jade (翡翠) but this one here, at Paradise Dynasty, is my favourite of them all. Its skin isn’t too thick, the sauce is nice and the filling is juicy.

Third is Steamed Szechuan Xiao Long Bao @ S$6.86. Paradise Dynasty has a range of 8 different Xiao Long Bao flavours, indicated by their different Dumpling skin colour. There’s a hint of Szechuan flavour in these Xiao Long Bao, nothing too overpowering, unlike the powerful 1st dish. This is nice too.

Last but not least, Paradise Dynasty’s Spicy Szechuan Crispy Chicken @S$8.40. Everybody loves deep fried chicken right? This dish dish is pretty good. Crispy/crunchy with that Szechuan punch.

I have to say though, this photo is from our 1st visit. A lot of chicken right? On our subsequent visits, the quantity of chicken and dried chilli swapped aka less chicken. Well, it’s disappointing. I hope this doesn’t hold true when the promotion ceases and we’re paying full retail price for it.

PS: Leave the Poached Sliced Fish in Szechuan Chilli Oil (四川水煮鱼) till the end aka eat it last. Otherwise you won’t be able to taste anything on the other dishes cause it’s so spicy. You’ve been warned 😀

New Moon Chinese New Year Sale 2013/2014 @ Alexandra TechnoPark

Category : Promotions

New Moon Chinese New Year Sale is now on from 16 Dec to 20 Dec 2013 at Alexandra TechnoPark (ATP)! We were surprised to see the banner set up after we returned from lunch and went up to recce what’s available this year.

It seems like there were lesser things this year. At least the things I usually buy like the New Moon Abalone Essence of Chicken & the bigger bottles of olive oil are absent this time round. The stock is also lesser and when I checked with the staff, they won’t be restocking so it’s really what you see is what you get. While stocks last!

Here’s the price list of New Moon’s range of abalone, canned food, yusheng, seasonings, rice, olive oil, bird’s nest, essence of chicken etc. There’s even Skippy peanut butter which is something new. There’s also a section on electronics with brands like Philips, Gigaset, Sony & TDK as with previous years. Maybe some Christmas shopping as well?

Event: New Moon Chinese New Year Sale 2013/2014

International Buffet at The Square @ Furama RiverFront Singapore

Category : Buffet, International, Promotions

I came to know about the International Buffet here at The Square @ Furama RiverFront Singapore from a close friend when we were discussing where to go for Christmas buffet dinner. She said that the food there was quite good with many varieties.

And best of all, there’s currently a 1 for 1 promotion for almost all major credit cards! This brings down the price for a buffet lunch from $53 per pax to only $26.50 per pax. Cheap cheap! Even their most expensive international buffet dinner is only $34 per pax with this 1 for 1 buffet offer.

Good deal! Assuming you are dining in pairs 🙂

By a twist of fate, we were organizing a farewell lunch this month where our female lead prefers buffet and she gave the go ahead for the international buffet @ The Square @ Furama RiverFront. Please note that it’s Furama RiverFront and not Furama City Centre.

As usual, I attempted to try one of everything I think is worth eating at an international buffet spread aka avoiding carbo. I must say that their food is really pretty decent. It may not have as huge a variety as Carousel – Royal Plaza on Scotts but it’s enough for me. Gone were the days when I can go around the buffet spread for at least 3 rounds *shake head*

I absolutely LOVE their crispy fish skin (yes I went for 2nd serving). It was the crunchiest fish skin I’ve ever eaten and it doesn’t have the unpleasant oily aftertaste.

Their prawns and salmon are also pretty fresh. Well, I enjoyed the salmon here more than at Carousel @ Royal Plaza on Scotts.

A colleague tried their fishball noodles and commented that the noodles were so-so but the fishball is good. Wonder if they have the option of ordering fishball soup?

As a fan of Gui Lin Gao, I was naturally excited seeing it at the dessert table. However the herbal taste was almost non-existent which left me hugely disappointed. In fact I could eat the Gui Lin Gao without the honey. That’s how light the taste is.

Other than the Gui Lin Gao, I like almost all the desserts except for the pistachio flavoured cake which tasted weird & artificial to me. The coffee flavoured sponge cake (I think) and the berries tart were average as well.

I ended my meal on a high note with a bowl of Wintermelon and Chinese Pear with Pork Ribs, cherry tomatoes & the crispiest fish skin ever. Delicious!

All in all, at a price of only $26.50 nett per pax with the 1 for 1 credit card promotion, I give the international buffet spread at The Square @ Furama RiverFront Singapore a huge thumbs up. I’ll return again if there’s still the 1 for 1 credit card promotion 😉

Japanese Curry Rice @ Coco Ichibanya

Category : Japanese, Promotions

This is a very straightforward, short & sweet blog post. I simply LOVE the Japanese Pork Cutlet Curry Rice @ Coco Ichibanya. It has become my latest comfort food!

I like that we get to choose the degree of spiciness from 0 onwards (Spicy Level 2 works best for me) & the amount of rice we want.

Best of all, Coco Ichibanya actually deduct S$1 off your bill if you choose to have less rice which really won me over!

How many places do you know of that actually rebates you for ordering less rice? To my knowledge, only Coco Ichibanya.

 

I first ate here with my colleagues because of Coco Ichibanya’s Super Saver Coupon whereby for S$12.80 nett, you’ll get a FREE Iced Lemon Tea & Mini Salad with every Japanese Curry Rice order.

Oh yes, this reminds me. You can also choose to top-up S$3.50 to make your Japanese Curry Rice a set too, anytime.

Coco Ichibanya’s Super Saver Coupon promotion has already ended on 30 June 2013. Their latest promotion is 50% off your second ala carte item with Citibank Credit Card for weekdays only. Excludes Public Holidays & Eves of Public Holidays.

No end date was written on the Citibank Banner so to be on the safe side, make a trip to Coco Ichibanya with a friend soon to check it out 😉

Coco Ichibanya doesn’t have a Singapore website & their Facebook page doesn’t seem to have a list of Coco Ichibanya outlets in Singapore. I only know that there’s a branch in The Star Vista & Bugis+. Hope this helps 🙂
