Diners can also look forward to live entertainment and lovely balloon sculptures by their balloonists as well as face painting by professional face painters.

A diner's passport is placed at every table - easy for familiarizing where has what!

Oh, bubbly for a weekend - always a good idea.

Tempo

A dazzling bar by night is converted into a family friendly beverage bar by day.

Slurpees at a buffet?

You bet and I had a field day guzzling both Fanta Orange and Ribena.

Food Capital

Seafood selection that features a number of catches on ice - boston lobsters, prawns, oysters and crab legs.

These mannequins are spotted throughout the buffet area and would be dressed according to various themes throughout the year.

Cold cuts and cheeses always get me very interested.

Amongst the number of stations at Food Capital, I was drawn to this particular stop with such photogenic racks of meat and condiments.

That glistening honeyed layer that shines so brightly, mama mia!

Spot the 15 kilo full lamb that is carved on the spot with a bed of roasted vegetables. A rare sight in my opinion!

Desserts deserves a station of its own! 






DSC_7916 

Spot the secret stash of sweets in the barrel - methinks this would entice children to no end.

Nonya kuehs in bird cages anyone? Sounds like a revolution to free the kueh.

I found the dessert section particularly enthralling with so many hidden treasures - blink and its gone miniature popcorn machine with a number of flavours to experiment with too.

Italian coffee to end of the meal - another treat in store for diners!


With the food tour through my lens complete, here's the chowdown on the number of plates I polished off in full glutton mode.


DSC_8007


Slurp the oysters up, pretty fresh ones though a variety of oysters would have been ideal.


DSC_8023


I am thankful I saved enough space for their cheeses. The fruit cheese was particularly outstanding for me - that sweet and savoury combination was spot on yummy!


DSC_7979


Selection of cured salmon

Asian versus Western, the latter of seafood chowder won.

Between the Josper grill and roast, I say give both a try. These were hugely underrated in the buffet and were actually very tasty.


DSC_7962


Foie gras on toast served with fruit compote


These are usually the hottest plates in any buffet because it's foie gras afterall. The toast could have been heated up more and foie gras was just nice in terms of doneness.


DSC_8020


Chef made an audacious suggestion to have it paired with a scoop of strawberry icecream, an interesting creation infact.


DSC_7968


Sashimi for one.


DSC_7997


Laksa for those who need a dose of local food - plough in copious amounts of belachan for that spicy kick.



DSC_8008

Don't forget to give their weekend special of prawn noodle a try too!


DSC_7999


Indian food always gets me very excited - the colours and flavours exhibited in a single plate. Eyepopping colours made for a very photogenic plate yet the ones that shone were surprisingly the vegetarian curries.


DSC_8014


As full as I was, yam icecream and me are such BFFs I needed to have three scoops full of this creamy delight.


DSC_7888

Grissini

DSC_7896

Spot the mannequin draped in the colours of Italy. 


DSC_7890


Plenty of delectables at Grissini - a whole display of antipasti, nibbles and cold cuts too!

DSC_7893


DSC_7898

The Josper oven area is one not to be missed (quite literally) since it is located outside the restaurant. Indulge in Josper oven-grilled meats including baby spring chicken, Australian rack of lamb, prime
wagyu beef ribeye, Mediterranean octopus and king prawns. 


DSC_7907

The meats are grilled over charcoal and flavoured wood for the extra aromatic punch - OH YUM.

DSC_8015

Grissini easily wins my vote for favourite corner in this buffet - particularly the pizza and pasta station.

DSC_7991

Lobster linguine topped with boston lobster is worth every calorie.
