Azur Crowne Plaza – Singapore and Malaysia Street Food Fiesta

Be transported to the vibrant streets of Singapore and Malaysia when you dine at Azur Restaurant at the Crowne Plaza Hotel Changi Airport. In conjunction with the national days of Singapore and Malaysia, Azur presents a bustling buffet of tasty street food featuring the two countries with live stations galore. The Partner and I were invited for a preview of the sumptuous spread!

Look forward to live stations where iconic street food will be prepared ala minute for diners and Azur’s interpretation of hawker fare by Executive Sous Chef, Andrew Tharm and his culinary team. There are familiar favourites such as Sambal Grilled squid, sambal stingray, oyster omelette, black pepper Sri Lankan Crab, Stir Fried Chilli Bamboo Clam and more main course dishes. At the dessert bar, you can find Bobo Cha Cha, Layered Pandan Kaya Cake etc.

We all have our favourites at the various hawker centres and coffee shops. These dishes I have highlighted have a slightly different touch to it to please the international palate. Here are some of the dishes that we tried.

Ipoh Hor Fun (1)

Ipoh Hor Fun – Flat rice noodles, shredded chicken, shrimp, Chinese mushrooms, greens and gravy topped with fried shallots and green pickled chilli

I’ve never tried Ipoh Hor Fun before and I thought it would be something quite different from the Hor Fun that I’m used to. I can tell that this version has made use of vibrant and fresh tasting ingredients.

Azur Restaurant Buffet Spread

Here are some of the pictures I took of the buffet spread at Azur Restaurant at the Crowne Plaza Changi Airport. Azur serves the best of Eastern and Western cuisine, with items such as Boston Lobster, Fresh Ocean Oysters, Sashimi Selection, Roasted Leg of Lamb, Thyme rubbed Wagyu of Beef, Cantonese Style Stewed Pork Knuckle and Roasted Meats.  We had a special festive Chinese New Year tasting prepared for us so we didn’t get to sample the other items on the buffet. But the desserts looked so good I just had to snap a few pics.

If you want to know what Azur will be offering for Chinese New Year, you can read all about it here.

Crowne Plaza Changi Airport Azur Restaurant - Dessert Section

The Marketing Manager of Azur told us that while most of the restaurant diners are office workers from around the area such as the Changi Airport Group and the people working at the Changi Business Park, a number of diners are also those whose flights have been delayed. They come to the restaurant in a bad mood, but the minute they spot the dessert line, all is forgotten immediately. I can imagine why.

Crowne Plaza Changi Airport Azur Restaurant - Do it yourself steamboat

Do it yourself steamboat. The 2 pots on the side are for you to cook the raw food. There have been instances of tourists who are unaccustomed to the steamboat concept scooping the steamboat broth thinking that this was the soup counter.
