One of the greatest things in life is food. Of food, the greatest must be the buffets. Buffets are when you set your stomachs on ‘limitless’ mode to just do nothing but feast. People always like to ask for the cheapest buffet available in Singapore, but for a good buffet, you must never mention the budget. The Line Buffet at Shangri-La Hotel in Singapore is considered affordable compared with the other top notch buffets in Singapore, with prices coming up to $68++ at those hotels.
On my maiden visit to Shangri-La in Singapore to try out its buffet, I was satisfied by the spontaneous service by the staff over there. Plates were cleared very quickly, and the crew was friendly and polite. The dining area I lunched at was very white and airy, but I dislike the yellow, orangey and darker dining area nearest to the food – it seemed like a place where you can’t see your food properly. Al fresco dining areas are available as well. Besides the excellent service, the best part was definitely its food.
The two most popular stations are the seafood and Japanese food. The freshness of these two types of food gains its popularity. Oysters are opened by the chefs on the spot! Other stations include the local, Indian, dessert, Chinese and English (Italian)
(From L to R: Magherita pizza, pork & bacon pizza, German bratwurst, roasted potato, cheesy meatballs)
(Naan, seafood beehoon, roasted turkey with giblet sauce, dory fish.) The roasted turkey was flavorful and tasted much more than you would expect from turkey meat. The giblet sauce complemented it.
The roasted meats at the Chinese section are a must-try. The skin remains crisp and are as good as those from traditional street or hawker stalls. You can also choose between a selection of Chinese noodles and the chefs will have it cooked on the spot.
(Chocolate ice cream)
Desserts galore! My favorite section of the buffet would be their desserts buffet. I love how their ice-cream was of some quality, how big the selection of mini cakes and nyonya kueh was, as well as how the chocolate fondue captures my attention right away.
(Lemon meringue tart): Definitely a favorite for people who not only want their desserts to be sweet, but a little sour as the lemon as well.
(Tiramisu log cake) A selection of log cakes were there as I went during the days of festive Christmas.
