X and I were really excited for our buffet trip to Checkers Brasserie at Hilton. We made a reservation a few days in advance and skipped our way to the restaurant to find that only a table was occupied. We took our seats, and walked around. To our dismay, there was no sashimi, or oysters or anything else that actually looked good. So we left. I can't begin to express how disappointed we were at the buffet spread. This is Hilton, and we're gonna pay a good $50-$70 for your buffet and this is what we were supposed to eat???
We left in horror and called The Line to see if they had any tables. Fortunately for us, they weren't entirely full so we took a cab there. It was a Friday and The Line was almost as crowded as the last time we were there, on a Saturday. Read about our previous trip to The Line last December here!
We had many plates of this but I was sad that they had no swordfish that day.
While X was queuing for the oysters, I went straight for this haha. We each had 2 cups of this. Love how light it was. Even though the tehtarik was only supposed to come in a "warm" form, the server made the extra effort to make iced teh tarik for us
X had to queue really long for these.
Soft shell crab!
With a little pasta and a slice of pizza. The pizza spread wasn't as good as the last visit's
Have loved their duck since the last visit!
I like bread and butter hahaha
Dessert time! The desserts this time round were so much better than our previous visit's! They have tarts and swiss rolls and cakes that looked really good! I didn't eat most of the items as I don't take berries... So yeah haha.
THE PEACH TART WAS REALLY GOOD. We really liked it! They ran out of it pretty early. Wish there was moreee
The chocolate tart and the durian puff were not too bad
We didn't like the jellies
The tiramisu was yummy too!
Bread and butter pudding which wasn't really up to mark
We had a good meal and stuffed ourselves full haha. Although we both had diarrhea after that, we sure were happy when we were indulging ourselves!
There was a 15% DBS discount so I think we each paid about $49 for the buffet [: Very worth the money!
