Oceans of Seafood

Media Invite

 photo PC100104.jpg
I've been to PasarBella quite a couple of times and have always walked past Oceans of Seafood but have never actually dined here. And I'm finally here to witness the cutting of the huge Northern Blue Fin Tuna! I was really excited, akin to a little kid waiting to open her Christmas presents!

Media Invite

Chef Lee Tong Kuon, the former executive chef and co-owner of Thai Village, is the driving force behind the highly rated TAO Seafood Asia at Asia Square. I've dined at Thai Village numerous times with my family and I honestly can't wait to bring them here! I was immensely impressed and I'm so certain that my family is going to love the food here too

Pince & Pints

 photo P8077122.jpg
Burger & Lobster has been on my mind ever since my visit to London. So when I heard that Pince & Pints is opening here, I was beyond excited! I saw a couple of pictures and couldn't help but note the almost identical reproduction. I really wanted to dine here but also heard about the crazy queue and no reservation policy. So I got my awesome friend, Iggy, to help me with reservations as he knows the owner! And yes, lucky me got to dine here on my birthday!

Treasures of The Sea @ Plaza Brasserie

Media Invite

 photo P3253966.jpg
From now till 30th April, Plaza Brasserie at PARKROYAL on Beach Road presents Treasures of The Sea, a sumptuous dinner buffet spread that will surprise you with its generous and unique selection

How does digging into four different variations of the Norwegian salmon sound? Think baked salmon with herbs, grilled salmon topped with Asian Sambal Chilli, a beautifully sea-salt crusted salmon and a Salmon Wellington wrapped up in a puff pastry.

And that's just the tip of the iceberg!

The Square

Invited Food Tasting

"Are you Hot enough?"

That's the name of the new buffet spread offered at The Square at Novotel Clarke Quay. Cleverly manipulating chilli in a great number of their dishes(even desserts!), this is a buffet you wouldn't want to miss!

Meeting Jean and John was comforting because it's been a long while since I've met people who can't take chilli. Back in my junior college days, every single person around me couldn't take chilli hahaha but when I moved on to university, everyone could take chilli... And they said I'm really lousy ):

Fish with Cream Sauce - Level 2

Photobucket

Yay jellyfish and Wakame seaweed!

I was actually pretty scared to try the 3 special dishes. Haha as you all know, both X and I are really bad at taking spice. However, to our surprise, the fish was not spicy at all! And I really liked it. It was coated with a light cream sauce that was savory and pleasant. The fish was also soft and very fresh! The second spiciest dish was the chicken. The spiciness came from the jalapenos that it was cooked with. And the spiciest one was the spicy pork! Even though it was supposed to be level 1. Haha maybe they mixed the signs up or something. The spiciest item in the buffet spread was probably the sambal squid haha it was super spicy!

We were telling John that the dishes weren't very spicy. I mean, if its anything that X and I can take, it probably is negatively spicy to the average Singaporean. Haha. And John said maybe the chefs took them too seriously as the three tasters who tried the new menu were all of foreign nationalities and are not accustomed to taking chilli. Haha so they must have said that everything was too spicy and the chefs reduced the spiciness accordingly haha

Photobucket
Laksa risotto
THIS WAS REALLY SPICY. One mouthful and I'm out. HAHA

Photobucket
Their signature Cheese Risotto.
This was really delicious! Infused with the sweetness of tomatoes and not overwhelmingly cheesy!


OMG I just realised that I didn't take a picture of the codfish in a delightful sauce which is a mix between laksa and French bisque. It was just a little spicy, but the codfish was so soft and nice and was really excellent with the rich and thick sauce! Can't believe I didn't take a picture of it.. I must be too excited to try it.

Photobucket
Ginger chicken, Black pepper Green Musssels, Prawns in Mayonnaise

Duck leg, Gammon Ham, Roasted beef

Nachos with salsa and cheese, siew mai and roasted potatoes

Photobucket
Seafood again!

Photobucket
Always my favourite part.
The orange tarts were great! And the chocolate ganache tart was so smooth and rich mhmm...

Photobucket
Poached pear in chocolate and chilli powder
A unique creation!

Photobucket
Marshmallows and mini fruit crumble
I love the fruit crumble! The crumble was so sweet and crunchy

Photobucket
Chocolate mousse with chilli
You're supposed to eat the chilli after the mousse... Haha obviously we didn't! There's chilli present in the mousse too. The sudden and sharp spiciness hits you fast but doesn't linger for long. Definitely a must-try!

Photobucket
Durian Pengat
A really popular item that durian lovers are bound to fall in love with! It might be a little sweet for some but it's really good!


For their CNY buffet, The Square is featuring a Do-It-Yourself Yusheng station! How cool is that. I'll steal all the golden pillows haha. And on Valentine's Day, "Love Is Hot" at The Square and their buffet spread will be going at $98++ for a couple! Screams "Value-for-money!"

One Ninety

2pm on New Years Day.
X and I arrived at Four Seasons Hotel for our New Year's Day brunch!
Having seen the menu online, we were really psyched for the buffet!

The extensive meat section

Photobucket
Desserts!

Photobucket
Poached Maine Lobster, Alaskan king crab, Sri Lanka crabs, sashimi and ikura!
Fresh seafood!

Photobucket
Smoked seafood, local roast etc

Photobucket
Grapefruit foie gras, beef wellington, pork wellington, meat loaf, lyoner, pork mortadella, peking duck

The impressive meat selection which wasn't exactly very tasty

Photobucket
Turkey pie, ham with pineapple and raisin sauce, duck with prune and orange

Photobucket

Photobucket
Apple, orange, watermelon, guava juice etc available

Photobucket
Apple-wood grilled Wagyu steak, home-styled potatoes, asparagus - $138++
The amount that you pay for the whole meal depends on the main course that you choose. They have other selections such as eggs benedict, sea bream, French toast, turkey etc.

My steak was medium and it was nicely done. Very tender, hardly bloody and it was really good. I was too full to finish the whole steak though. It was quite a huge portion.

Photobucket
Wood-fire baked Maine lobster, prawn and bread crumbs stuffed - $138 ++

When the lobster first came, we were kinda shocked. Hahaha it's huge! We just stared at it and wondered how we were supposed to start. It was quite a common reaction as I see other diners with similar expressions on their faces and struggling to tackle this monster. Haha. The lobster was sweet and juicy but X didn't think that it was exactly fantastic.

Photobucket
Baked cheesecake, matcha trifle, banana chocolate cake, grandma's chocolate cake, rhubarb crumble, william pear cake, passion mousse cake, bread and butter pudding

The desserts were all really delicious!

Photobucket
Icecream

Photobucket

Photobucket
Passion fruit macarons, sticky date toffee pudding, almond cake. Love the macarons! But they didn't top up the macarons at the end ):

Photobucket
Chocolate mousse, caramel pralines.
The caramel pralines were seriously addictive

I was really looking forward to the live station that was supposed to have chocolate souffle with caramel sauce but I couldn't find it. Guess they made some changes to the menu.

Photobucket
Coffee

It was quite a pleasant experience dining at One-Ninety. Service was quite impeccable. The whole meal cost $320 for the both of us and while we feel that it's a little steep for a buffet that had only slightly more hits than misses, we still enjoyed ourselves. I think that they should improve on the presentation of the seafood and sashimi at their respective stations though!
