Lunch at The Line

I heard several good recommendations about The Line Restaurant at Shangri-La Hotel but never had a chance to try it till today.

Overall experience, food is food, spread is great but come at a cost.

Christmas dinner @ Azur, Crowne Plaza Changi Airport

This is my second time at Azur but the first time for Christmas dinner. But most surprising is seeing the sashimi and a quick check with NEA website provides the assurances.

The food is nice but the selection is quite limited for the price.

Lunch at Starz Restaurant, Resort World Sentosa

There’s a slew of SG50 dining promotions at Resort World Sentosa. I had a go at Starz and am happy with the selection, the pictures speak for themselves.

Lunch @ Penang Place

Today, I started trying out a new way to take buffet pictures. Instead of photographing the food as the way they were laid out for diners, how about preparing them on my plates instead. Nice try but lots of room for improvement.

Penang fried kway teow. This dish is very popular. The moment the tray is topped up, its emptied within moments.

Buffet @ Seafood International Market & Restaurant

I love food photography and find À la carte buffet’s setting the best for this purpose. This time, my friend and I came to Seafood International Market & Restaurant at East Coast Park (former Big Splash) not just for food, but to really capture some food pixels.

Despite its slogan, “if it swims, we have it”, not everything they had is on the buffet menu.

Dessert and soup station

Some wine to go along with our meal if we want, at extra cost of course :p

Without further ado, let the buffet begin!

I think most probably I busted my annual cholesterol limit in one day and have to go simple for the rest of the year 🙂 Anyway, the food is really good and definitely be back again with my family, just for the food.

Lunch @ Suki-Ya, Marina Square

My wife and I about 3 hours to ourselves in between mother’s day celebration at our children’s child care centre and chanced upon this restaurant. We didn’t want something heavy but end up having buffet instead.

This is our first time here and even though typical buffet strategy was to go  for the meat, we helped ourselves to the vegetables instead.

The dual soup pot reminds me of the typical Chinese steamboats in Bugis, complete with multiple sauces as well.

We are not vegetarian though, and did help ourselves to many servings of the yummy sliced beef and chicken.

And lastly, finishing off we some fruits.

Overall, the food was simple but good and didn’t burn a hole in our pocket.
