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.

Four Seasons Hotel’s One-Ninety Restaurant reopens after botanical-inspired transformation

The modern Asian brasserie One-Ninety Restaurant  at Four Seasons Hotel is now open after a botanical-inspired makeover. This heritage-botanical theme is in line with the theme used by the the recently renovated hotel rooms and suites. If One-Ninety Restaurant previously struck you as cavernous and aloof, it now exudes a much more inviting and friendly vibe, yet still retaining its classy nature.

Four Seasons One Ninety Restaurant

The revamped restaurant now serving Provençal cuisine with an Asian twist,  also boasts a newly minted Restaurant Chef Kamarl John, who previously worked at Four Seasons London (I’ll be visiting in just a few day’s time!!) as well as at Adrift at MBS.

Signature dishes here include the Seasonal Seafood Tower for Two, the Chargrilled 1.2kg Forty Days Aged Rib Chop MBS 6 and the Iberico Pork Presa & Collar. Even the complimentary bread showcases Chef Kamarl’s creative craftsmanship as the Artisan Sourdough bread is made from flour sourced from artisanal mills in Hokkaiddo, ground by hand and blended to his specification, and the loaves baked fresh daily at One-Ninety.

Sakura Afternoon Tea at Conrad Centennial Singapore Lobby Lounge

[Media Invite]

If you have been following my blog, you will know that one of my favourite past-times is enjoying a spot of afternoon tea. I love the whole idea behind it, from the exquisite nibbles, the various teas to choose from, the posh and dainty settings, and the idea of quiet relaxation and good conversation as time stops still, even if just for a couple of hours. But I do know that a dainty afternoon tea is not everyone’s cup of tea. Those who like to have their meats and seafood will be wondering at all the small bites.

Conrad Sakura Afternoon Tea

The good news is that Conrad Centennial Hotel has come up with an afternoon tea set that will please all parties. From 1 March 2019 to 12 May 2019, the Sakura Afternoon Tea menu will be available at the Conrad Lobby Lounge. As the name suggests, the dainty sakura has been incorporated into the sweet treats presented in the afternoon tea menu. However, if you dine on the weekend, the afternoon tea set also comes with a seafood platter and and a cheese platter. The seafood platter especially should please those with bigger appetites. Now the dainty eaters can dine with the voracious eaters without any bad feelings. (You know I hesitate to use the word ladies and men, or wives and husbands because I don’t want to generalise, but you know who I’m referring to right.)

And a very huge plus point for afternoon tea lovers is that you can have unlimited servings of tea and coffee. What this means is that you can try the various tea flavours and coffee brews without limitation. Most hotels nowadays limit you to just 2 teas/coffees per person, and I have even encountered hotels that do not even offer a second pot of tea, aside from hot water top ups. In reality though, it’s very difficult to drink more than 3 types of tea, because that means 3 pots of tea, or coffee for that matter, but I certainly appreciate the option of being able to switch if I want to. Quite a good selection of Ronnefeldt teas too, several choices per type of tea ranging from black tea to Chinese teas and even herbal infusions. The Sakura Afternoon Tea set also comes with a flute of Faive Rose Wine from House of Nino Franco per person, which I wish was refillable!
