I generally eschew buffets. I find most of them to be pretty generic and nowadays I usually only have them when it is part of the hotel breakfast package. Oh, there was a time when I used to love buffets. But that was a long time ago when my appetite was much bigger and my palate, less discriminating. Buffets were a great idea then. You starve yourself for the whole day, then pay one price and try to eat more than your money’s worth of food. It used to be a profitable venture for me, but not anymore since I can’t eat as much and the prices of buffets have gone up significantly in the last decade.
Orchard Cafe: A Case of observing Flowers while Riding a Horse
Pig Trotters with Bee Hoon It’s hard to blog about buffets because it’s a case of 走马看花, ie trying to appreciate the flowers while riding at full gallop on a horse. Often there is so many different things to eat that you eat a bit of each but fail to appreciate the individual dish on […]
Straits Kitchen: Halal Hawker Buffet in Aircon Comfort
Wok Station If you have been reading my blog for a while, you would probably notice that I seldom blog about buffets. I guess it may be because I am older now and I can’t eat as much as when I was younger. It’s also because buffets are ideologically opposed to my motto of “Never […]

Does the thought of tender, juicy beef sizzling over a charcoal grill thrill you? Yeah, me too. A slice of nicely grilled Wagyu Karubi dipped in Tare sauce eaten with a mouthful of good Japanese rice is as a wonderful a treat as a Scooby Snack. The only problem is that such a treat usually […]
This Stall is ClosedWintermelon Soup Base I hated steamboats when I was a kid. As a child, I preferred food that were fried, grilled and deep fried over those that were steamed or boiled. Somehow eating a piece of boiled chicken didn’t quite appeal to me as much as eating fried chicken. I guess tastes […]
Butterfish Sir? I know a lot of Vegetarians do go for buffets (where there is a nice salad bar), but I wonder if a Vegetarian would actually go to a restaurant called Carnivore where the main attraction is “all-you-can-eat” meats that are carved right on your table? Even if they do, wouldn’t the sight of […]
