PARKROYAL on Kitchener–Oh Crab! It’s back! Seafood Buffet

This is one seafood buffet that seafood lovers, crab lovers in particular, would rejoice its return. Check out PARKROYAL on Kitchener Spice Brasserie’s seafood buffet which is available on Fridays – Sundays (excl Friday lunch), from now until 16 August 2019. You can stuff yourself silly on dishes such as Stir Fried Slipper Lobster, Oatmeal Prawns with Curry Leaves and Steamed Whole Seabass Hong Kong Style. Or seafood on ice items such as Black Mussel, Marinated Stone Crab Claw, Baby Lobsters and Scallops on Shell.

Or if you are a true blue crab lover, you will be making multiple trips to the crab station for Chilli Crab with Mantou, Black Pepper Crab and Salted Egg Yolk Crab. When I was there, I witnessed this table of dinners tucking into crab after crab, you won’t believe how high the discarded shells were piled, any higher and the shells might have toppled to the floor!

There’s also a DIY mocktail bar, a first for Spice Brasserie. Concoct your own mocktail from a selection of sodas and flavoured syrups such as Yuzu, Mango and Blueberry. Complete the drink with toppings such as lychee and sour plum.

Oh while you’re there, do not miss out the desserts. There is a surprisingly large variety local desserts such as Durian Pengat with Sticky Rice, Pulut Hitam, Kueh Kueh, Beancurd sheets and barley, and Cheng Tng. I usually avoid such desserts when I am at other hotel buffets as the one or two Asian desserts provided are just cursory inclusions. But the ones here are legit and worth the stomach space!

Seafood themed buffets don’t normally come cheap, but if you mainly want seafood, you might want to check out Spice Brasserie.

Saturday / Sunday Lunch : $48 per Adult | $24 per Child
Friday – Sunday Dinner : $58 per Adult | $29 per Child

La Dame de Pic London

During my stay in London back in May, I had the privilege of dining at one of Four Seasons Hotel’s London restaurants. There are two Four Seasons Hotels in London, one being at Park Lane and the other being at Ten Trinity Square. Although I desperately wanted to try more, the choice was whittled down to La Dame de Pic at Four Seasons Hotel London Ten Trinity Square for 2 reasons. One is that La Dame de Pic in London is a Michelin-starred restaurant, having being awarded the star in 2018 & 2019 Michelin Guide. The other reason being that La Dame de Pic would be opening a restaurant in Singapore so it would be a great opportunity to compare both restaurants, or to simply visit just to reminisce my holiday in London.

La Dame de Pic London offers distinctive French cooking from the acclaimed Anne-Sophie Pic. She is the only current French female chef to hold 3 Michelin stars. Anne-Sophie had not originally contemplated being a chef and was never formally trained. However she was born into a family of chefs. Her family’s restaurant Maison de Pic in Valence originally won 3 Michelin stars under her grandfather Andre in 1934, and then later her father. The restaurant lost its 3rd star in 1995 after the sudden death of her father, however Anne-Sophie managed to regain the stars on her own in 2007.

Amara Sanctuary Resort Sentosa – Amazing exclusive pool + special breakfast for the kiddos!

[Media Invite]

If you’re looking for a spacious family room + swimming pool for your next hotel staycation, you just might want to consider Amara Sanctuary Resort Sentosa. Recently, the husband, toddler and I had the luxury of checking out Amara Sanctuary, via the Club Tiny Package.

Amara Sanctuary Resort Sentosa - Larkhill Terrace Swimming Pool

There’s just so many things I loved about the staycation. First of all, the spacious rooms. These family rooms are located in a separate block (Larkhill Terrace) away from the main hotel block. The rooms are huge! There is a separate living room area, the bedroom with a king-sized bed and even a balcony with a day bed to lounge on. It literally felt like the size of a small apartment.

Michelin-starred Chef Roland Durand’s 3-course set menu at Ginett Restaurant & Wine Bar (Hotel G Singapore)

[Media Invite]

Beautiful evening yesterday with the classic combination of good food, good company and good conversation. So lucky to be able to sample the creations of Michelin-starred Chef Roland Durand from France presented via a 3-course set menu. Chef Durand holds awards including winning the Grand Prix Culinaire Internationale Auguste Escoffier and Meuilleur Ouvrier de France competitions.

Actually this special menu is available only for 3 days between 18-20 June, so you really have to hurry if you want to try this out. The 3-course set menu is priced at S$69++ and you can top up $35 for wine pairings. The pictures below show 6 dishes, ie 2 dishes per course. And yes, I ate it all. Yes I ate two dinners yesterday and practically cleaned my plate(s)….

If you can’t make it, you should still consider visiting Ginett Restaurant at some point in time. Some of their dishes are surprisingly affordable, and wines per glass starting from $6??? That’s quite a steal here in Singapore!
