[CNY 2017] Chinese New Year buffet with Peranakan flavours at Swissotel Merchant Court Ellenborough Market Cafe

For a truly Asian Chinese New Year buffet spread, check out Swissotel Merchant Court’s Ellenborough Market Cafe. The restaurant is well known for its Peranakan buffet which offers all-time favourites such as the Ayam Buah Keluak, Kueh Pie Tie and Durian Pengat. Now how about combining that with Chinese New Year must-haves such as Pen Cai, Waxed Duck and Sausage Rice and Teowchew Steamed Cold Crab?

Incidentally, Ellenborough Market Cafe’s Executive Chef Louis Tay was also team manager of the Singapore Culinary Team that clinched double gold at the Culinary Olympics held in Germany in 2016. So you know the food has got to have some standard at Ellenborough Market Cafe.

Here are some pictures of the buffet spread that we sampled 2 weeks back. The dishes will be available buffet style from 16 Jan – 12 Feb 2017.

Durian Pengat – Had to at least try the famous durian pengat, so good that several bloggers made a beeline for this prior to the start of dinner!
