The irrepressible and positive Travelling Gourmet M savours a marvellous Internatonal Buffet at…
MARRIOTT Singapore in Marriott Cafe. I began with the Seafood on Ice which boasted sweet and juicy Snow Crab Legs, Mussels and lots of Crayfish which tastes like Lobster and big Prawns. Yummie! Try with Spicy Sauce and Mignonette.
Crayfish, Baked Oyster au Gratin, Snow Crab Leg and Poached Prawns!
Smoked Salmon and tasty Proscuitto freshly sliced is always delightful. You can pair it with Honeydew Melon in the Italian Style. I liked too the Soy Marinated Salmon and Orange Marinated Salmon with Capers and Dill Mustard Dressing.
I also my a very nice Salad for myself from the Salad Bar which has Lettuce, Cherry Tomatoes, Rocket, Green Frisee, Pumpkin Seeds, Chia Seeds and lots more. The Extra Virgin Olive Oils infused with Basil and Thyme plus the Vinegar Selection is very good.
Middle Eastern dishes like Hummus, Labneh and Baba Ganoush made from Eggplant are healthy choices with Pita Bread. Also cute Rice wrapped in Vine Leaves.
The Hot Carvery with Beech Oven is excellent. There was Roast Pork with crunchy Crackling, a whole large Salmon and Roast Prime Rib of Beef. A BIG choice of sauces like Red Wine, BBQ, Mushroom, Apple, Rosemary, Black Pepper Jus, Garlic Jus, Teriyaki, White Wine Sauce, Thyme, Cranberry and more. Enjoy with Roasted Vegtables like Pumpkin, Carrots and Squash A good choice of Mustards too including my favourite Pommery Whole Grain Mustard.
The Travelling Gourmet TM says: I love a great, big juicy steak!
Indian Yummies offer Paneer Cheese Curry, Chicken Masala, Crispy Poppadoms, Egg Curry with Curry Leaves and more!
I also relished the Laksa made to order, plus delicious Cantonese Style Wan Hao Roast Chicken and Cantonese Style Roast Duck. Many different noodles like Mee Pok, Yello Egg Noodles and Vermicelli are available, and you can have your noodles with Chicken or Pork Broth too.
A good selection of Freshly Baked Breads and Cheeses like Emmental and Port Salut wre to my liking. I especially liked to Caramelized Walnuts and Almonds that go well with the Cheeses plus Cranberries.
Desserts including a Chocolate Fountain is mind blowing. Sticky Date Pudding with creamy Custard and Chocolate Sauce, Bread and Butter Pudding. Cakes galore like Strawberry Mousse and Nyonya Kueh plus Ice Creams like Mango, Strawberry and Vanilla. Many condiments like Milk Chocolate and Dark Chocolate crunchy Balls and colourful Sprinkles are for you to add as you like.
Sticky Date Pudding, Chocolate Mousse and more…
Unlike other buffets there is also a free flow of Tea and Coffee included. I like a nice Cappuccino at the end of a good meal. Bon appetit! The Travelling Gourmet TM always says: Keep calm and carry on eating!
