Raffles Hotel Tiffin Room–Delicious Indian Buffet

I have stepped into Raffles Arcade countless times, but not so the actual interiors of the illustrious Raffles Hotel. So it was without hesitation that I accepted an invitation to check out the Tiffin Room at Raffles Hotel. The Tiffin Room serves a North Indian buffet, including vegetarian curries for non-meat eaters. Interestingly, Raffles Hotel’s afternoon tea service is also served at the Tiffin Room and not somewhere else.  Did you know that Raffle’s Hotel Tiffin Room was officially named so way back in 1976?

I’d been to Tiffin Room once with my parents, many years ago, could probably have been a decade ago! I remembered it to be a posh place with lots of delicious curries to choose from and I found it difficult to try every single curry because everything was so delicious and there was just no more space in the stomach! Well, nothing much has changed a decade later, it’s like stepping back in time when I revisited the Tiffin Room a few weeks ago.

Curries and other Indian dishes are still the stronghold here, and aside from the salad and cheese bar, don’t be expecting other types of cuisine here. That’s not a problem for me because I love Indian food, but if you don’t, I’d say go with an open mind and you might just be delighted.

One of my favourite dishes of the evening as the chicken drumsticks were succulent and really tender with just a bit of charred taste.

I must say all the curries I tasted were fantastic. Even if you just had the curry itself without the ingredients, I could have finished half a plate of rice just with that.

Seah Street Deli

Seah Street Deli is not on Seah street!!!! Ok that wasn’t funny. Ok Seah Street Deli is actually a cafe owned by Raffles Hotel.  According to the Raffles Hotel website, Seah Street Deli is a typical New York-style delicatessen, the unique menu features a selection of American sandwiches, entrées and salads. It is yet another place in Raffles Hotel where you can dine without robbing the bank.

I usually go there for the sandwiches. The portions are huge and they have a lot of interesting flavours to choose from. Seah Street Deli is quite similar to Billy Bombers but is quieter and has less teenagers.

Reuben sandwich with fries I believe this is the Reuben sandwich, with a whole ton of fries. I ordered extra gravy, which I think you can do without because the gravy was not that great in addition to the fact that it cost $2 as well.
