Buffet @ Oscar's

Posted by Dawn at Monday, July 26, 2010
Had buffet at Oscar's Cafe & Terrace in Conrad Centennial Hotel tonight. Food reviews of that place were quite good as I researched on the internet, so I was pretty excited. Went there because CT's American colleague and his wife invited us and one more couple from CT's company for dinner.

The buffet had so many variety of good, fresh, quality food! I was amazed at the wide selection!

I attacked the raw food first of course, as I would in any buffet! I am a sucker for sashimi and oyster! I could eat plates and plates of those and that would probably cover the cost of the buffet already!

They had lots of variety of sashimi like the sword fish which is my favourite. But they also had king fish which I have never tried before and raw fresh Jap Clams. Ooo..all so good and fresh!

And there would be a guy behind the counter shucking a whole bar full of fresh, unopened oysters in the ice for you.

After satisfying my oysters and sashimi craving, I attached the crayfish, crawfish, crabs, huge prawns, and mussels. Very sweet and fresh! I was even surprised at the taste of the crawfish as I had those when I was in New Orleans and the ones in Singapore seemed to taste much sweeter, meatier and fresher than in Louisiana which is very strange as crawfish comes mainly from New Orleans.

I was quite full after eating all those raw and cold dishes. Didnt take much cooked food except for claypot grouper which was nice and some fried stuff.

There was also a noodle shed outside the restaurant serving laksa, prawn mee soup,tiger prawn noodles dry, bak ku teh, bak chor mee, tom yam soup noodles, wantan mee etc.

I had the wantan mee, tiger prawns mee (which had giant size prawns) and laksa. All tasted quite authentic and good.

There was just so many varieties of everything...See what I mean..

So for desserts, I had gelato raspberry and passion fruit ice cream while CT had the banana crepe with chocolate gelato.

For about $70 per person, I would highly recommend this to anyone who is thinking of going out on a date or to celebrate a special occasion. Don't forget to order their Californian house red wine to go with the wonderful food. Enjoy!
