Pan Pacific Edge Restaurant’s Revamped Dinner Buffet

[Media Invite]

Fans of Edge will be glad to know that the dinner buffet has been revamped and now boasts the following additions:

  • Double boiled soups station – 8 classic double-boiled soups will be available on rotation daily (Ginseng Chicken Soup, Lotus Root with Cuttlefish Pork Bone, Apple-Pear Pork Soup with Bitter and Sweet Almonds etc)
  • Theatrical display of Teh Tarik and Cendol with Durian Ice Cream
  • Enhanced seafood station – You can now DIY your own seafood in a cup
  • New Amuse Bouche – Truffle Scented Green Soba, Udon with Goma Dressing and Unagi with Confit Potato

Edge - Revamped Dinner Buffet

I think the double-boiled soups and Teh Tarik in particular would appeal to the older generation, so if you are looking for a dinner buffet venue for multi-generational families, this might just be the place.

Hai Tien Lo 24 Claypot Specialities Promotion–It’s back again!

[Media Invite]

Fans of Pan Pacific Hotel’s Hai Tien Lo Claypot dishes will be glad to know that the claypot promotion is back again, but only from now until 31 August 2018. The last time it was rolled out was in 2016, so don’t delay or you might have to wait another couple of years. This time round, you can choose any 2 claypot dishes for $38.80, a few dollars more expensive than back in 2016. It’s actually not a bad way to sample a variety of dishes that Hai Tien Lo has to offer, as compared to ordering from the usual menu.

Hai Tien Lo - Claypot Specialties

I had the opportunity to sample around 10 of the 24 claypot specialities, and I have to applaud Executive Chef Lai Tong Ping because I liked all of the dishes I tried. If I had to choose, I would say that the Claypot Pork Shoulder with Assorted Bell Peppers in Truffle Oil is probably my favourite. The pork shoulder cut has always been my go to cut when I cook myself, as it is meaty and very tender and I’m sure this was the reason why Chef Lai used this cut in the dish as well. Tender pork plus crisp bell peppers with just a touch of truffle oil, I could have finished the entire claypot myself.

Pan Pacific Hai Tien Lo’s revamped dim sum buffet

[Media Invite]

Pan Pacific Singapore’s renown Cantonese restaurant Hai Tien Lo has recently refreshed its dim sum buffet menu, so if you’re looking to indulge in multiple servings of dim sum, you might just want to check out Hai Tien Lo. The dim sum list isn’t very extensive, however there are also numerous main course type dishes to choose from, as well as special dishes. The special dishes are a must order because they are things like Mini Buddha Jumps over the Wall, and braised abalone. The pricing for the dim sum buffet, especially on the weekends seems relatively more affordable than other dim sum buffets from comparable hotels, based on my recollection.

The dim sum dishes I tried were all very good. I think you won’t go wrong with any dim sum dish that you order because this is certainly one of Hai Tien Lo’s expertise. Although the main dishes we tried were all good too, if I had to pick one, I would definitely recommend the poached sliced pork belly with shredded ginger in fish bone broth. The pork slices were melt in the mouth tender, and the fish bone broth was of the type of broth where you want to just keep drinking it because its richly flavoursome and nourishing.

For the desserts, go for the Chilled homemade bean curd with imperial swiftlet’s nest. The beancurd is not the old school type, if you know what I mean. And it has birds nest, so it’s self explanatory why you have to order this right? Also go for the Chilled osmanthus jelly with quail’s egg and maltose. It’s really light and with a nice fragrance, so it’s a fitting end to a heavy meal, unless of course you still have stomach space for a heavier dessert.

[CNY Media Invite]

And just like that, we’ve moved into 2018 and it’s now time to talk about Chinese New Year 2018 instead of Christmas 2017. A couple of weeks back, I had the privilege of having a sneak peak at what Hai Tien Lo Restaurant at Pan Pacific Singapore has in store for family reunions, CNY gatherings and Lo Hei luncheons. Hey come to think of it, I celebrated Christmas with a Champagne Brunch at Pan Pac, and I got to celebrate CNY early at Hai Tien Lo. Good times Smile

Available from 22 January to 2 March 2018, Hai Tien Lo will be offering a grand total of eight reunion set menus featuring everyone’s favourite CNY delicacies. There will also be one nutritious vegetarian set menu. Scroll down to see pictures of a selection of dishes from the set menus.

Pan Pacific Edge Restaurant Theatrical Sunday Champagne Brunch Extravaganza

A couple of weeks back, the Partner and I celebrated an early Christmas by going for a Sunday Champagne Brunch at Pan Pacific Edge Restaurant. I have never attended a Sunday Super Brunch before. I’ve always wanted to, but it’s just so expensive! In the grand scheme of things, a Sunday Super Brunch buffet (a few hotels offer this) is the most expensive buffet you will find, costing well over a hundred dollars, and sometimes nearing $200. In this case, because it was the Christmas period, and because there was UNLIMITED Champagne and cocktails, it was on the high end at $179++, per pax!

But what can I say, it was the most festive and most rambunctious event / buffet I have ever been to. And it’s longer than other buffets too at 4 hours, instead of the usual 3. But you know the 4 hours passed SO QUICKLY! There were loads of Ang Mohs out in huge groups celebrating Christmas. And when Ang Mohs + alcohol meet, it makes for a very jovial atmosphere. Many had even brought along their Christmas hats and reindeer antlers. I wanted to bring mine too but I forgot!

Edward had a great time at Pan Pacific hotel. We were there 1 hour early to take pictures everywhere! He loves hotels because he loves running around and climbing onto the soft comfy sofas. Here’s a picture of him playing peekaboo with the utensils!
