Finally had a chance to dine at @limesingapore for their weekend lunch buffet ($78++) and it's definitely pretty decent with just some misses!

The highlight got to be their seafood selection, with several exquisite items such as freshly shucked oysters, Boston lobsters and snow crab legs. The oysters were fantastic; juicy, succulent with fresh seafood savouriness. The crab legs were meaty, fresh and naturally salty.

For many buffets, they don't do their roast beef right. However, the rendition at Lime hits differently as it was surprisingly tender with a good beefy flavour. One of my favourites was actually their Cheese Wheel Pasta, it was so creamy, rich, cheesy and the pasta was al dente. Actually went to take 3 portions in total!

Cakes were mostly good, as they were rich and moist.

And as all buffets, they have their misses. The sashimi here was really not good, especially their tuna. The other Japanese items like sushi were really forgettable. Ice cream selections were just too frozen hard to grab anything.

Nonetheless, this is still a decent buffet to go for your celebrations. With a beautiful ambience, I believe it is date night worthy!

Recently I had a chance to try the afternoon tea set ($68 per pax) and I must say, the ambience, food and service is not bad but with some misses.

The set comes with a cocktail, a set of savoury dishes, free flow desserts and a choice of their selection of tea or coffee. Their savouries come with quite premium ingredients, such as truffle, crabmeat and foie gras. One of my favourites has to be the Unagi Kabayaki Bun, as it was stuffed with a thick slab of unagi that was beautifully seasoned and was very tender! The Duck Rilletes Tart was not bad as well, as the foie gras given was huge and rich. However, we all agree that the tart given was too big, and as it was very rich it would fill you up very quickly. The truffle brie sandwich was sadly a disappointment as it tasted really weird.

As for their desserts line, the selection was quite extensive and everything was not bad! My favourites got to be their macarons and their crepe! Soft and slightly crispy on the edges, the crepe was stuffed full of dark chocolate and hence was very rich.

All in all, their afternoon tea can be quite expensive for the quality they offer. Considering that Colony is one of the best buffet restaurants in Singapore, their lunch or dinner buffet is better preferred!

If you love your Japanese food, this is one buffet restaurant you don't want to miss out on.

The buffet itself is priced at $50++, and there were many options in the menu such as sashimi, grilled dishes, tempura, side dishes and udon/soba meal dishes.

The quality of the food items were actually pretty impressive! The sashimi slices were all fresh and the cooked dishes were all done well. Favourites got to be their salmon sashimi, as they were so rich and buttery 😍

Their grilled dishes were done well too, especially the grilled saba and salmon slices. They were smokey and the sweet fresh flavours of the meat really shines here!

Can't wait to be back!

Had a chance to go for the weekday dinner buffet ($78 per pax) and although there were hits and misses, it was still quite a scrumptious feast!

From lobsters to crab legs to steak and pork ribs, the buffet line consists of many premium items. The lobsters from the seafood line were fresh with a meaty bite, but the best were still the crab legs. The sweet crab flavours was strong from the fresh crab meat, and it was full of seafood umami as well! I definitely ate too many of them 😂 Besides, if you would like the seafood to be tossed with some sauce like chilli crab sauce, you can do so as well!

As for the meat section, most of the beef options were too tough and the lamb chops were unfortunately dry. But the pork ribs had good smoky savoury marinade and was really tender!

The dessert options were alright. Love the service from the staff though, as they promptly cleared our plates and refilled our glasses.

Not bad of a buffet option!

Live Seafood Market is quite a new establishment by The Three Peacocks, a popular seafood bbq restaurant, and we were quite impressed with their food quality and selections! We went there for lunch and it was just $33.80++ per person.

There were quite a few favourites among the plethora of food options, especially the grilled food, sashimi and sushi items! The grilled chicken was really smokey, tender and flavourful. Their yakitori sticks were so succulent, tender and very well marinated that I had to get many more of them. Their Mentaiko Tamagoyaki is a must try too, as the mentaiko sauce has such a strong flavour as they definitely put in alot of the mentaiko😍

As for their sashimi, they were in relatively thick slices and they were fresh 😍 Love their nigiri sushi options too, especially the salmon sushi as the fish to rice ratio is just nice, and the flavoured rice was really tasty.

There were just too many food items that we like to mention, but in conclusion, we felt like it was really value for money for the quality. Great for family celebrations!

Finally went to a buffet with my family for a celebration, and we found this place not too bad!

The Weekday Lunch Buffet was $68 and there was a 1 for 1 promotion for UOB cards. I wouldn't say the variety is the best, but they did cover quite a few cuisines! The seafood was fresh, the salmon sashimi was fatty (though I didn't like the octopus and tuna sashimi) and our favourite was the grilled section! The grilled fish, pork belly and satay were so tender, smoky and flavourful 😻 I was so addicted to them I took second and third helpings of them!

Desserts wise there is quite a variety, and I enjoyed the durian penget and chocolate pudding the most! The chocolate pudding was so rich and chocolatey!

Though most food are not mind blowingly good, the spread is pretty worth at the promotional price. Wouldn't mind coming back again with the promotion!

For army stew lovers, this is one buffet you will enjoy. At $25.90 (30% off with #burpplebeyond) you can a pretty good range of street food ingredients like tteokbokki, odeng and of course ramyeon 😍 there are meat ingredients like pork belly and prawns and we loved the prawns so much as they were so fresh! The broth is abit too sweet for my liking though! For cooked food they include fried chicken and mandu, which were so crispy and juicy, and they pair so well with their garlicky sauce! Their service is very good as well, definitely recommend if you love your Korean hotpot!

Hyang Yeon's Premium Buffet ($42) entitles you to a huge plethora of food dishes, including different cuts of meats, stews and appetisers. To start of, the small dishes or panchan that came had a huge variety and they were all so good! The appetisers that we chose, steamed egg and seafood pancake were very freshly made as well, especially the pancake as it was crispy on the outside 🥺. I honestly think its one of the best I've had!

The meats were very fresh as well, and we especially love the pork belly, marinated pork belly and beef short rib. All were so juicy, sweet and delicious! Though we only can get a portion of beef each for the normal premium buffet, it's good enough because there's so much food and we ordered only a portion for all meats. The stew was very comforting as well!

Long story short, all are fresh and delicious and will be back again for their ala carte dishes!

Here first time for their mookata buffet ($22.80) and ended with a happy belly. The meats used are pretty fresh and well seasoned, my personal favourite is the pork belly because its just so juicy and tender with the char. I think it's pretty cheap and there's no GST and service charge as well!

One thing I appreciate from Sukiya's outlet at Vivocity is that the seating area is HUGE, giving you loads of space to place the food ingredients you will have 😍 The ingredients themselves are all pretty fresh as well. Service is pretty darn good here as well! Perhaps the flaw was that the soup base was just alright, nothing fancy. With the 30% discount from burpple beyond, it cost about $25.75 all-in per pax, including the free flow drinks and ice cream.

Don Dae Bak uses charcoal to grill the meats, and some were pretty good! The pork belly slices are fresh not frozen, and the quality is actually pretty decent. The weekday buffet goes for $27.90 per pax and one of the best part is actually the free flow omelette that you can get and with the grill, it is possible to make it soft and fluffy 😍 most decent Korean BBQ places tend to be rather pricey, hence this is a good recommendation if you are looking for something in the middle ground 😊

Previously, I've always believed that buffets do not offer the quality of food that restaurants do, as they have to prepare them in big batches. However, Triple Three proved me wrong.

The weekend lunch buffet ($78++) boasts a large variety of food of many different cuisines and I can safety say that almost all of them are of very high standards.

Notable ones are the salmon sashimi cuts, as these are much thicker and fresher than what you can get in restaurants. The ribeye cut is really tender, and trust me, you can cut it with a spoon. It's really juicy, you probably don't need any sauce to go with it.

Service here is absolutely wonderful, as most staffs are really courteous! If you have a special someone to bring for a birthday treat, they have complimentary birthday cake and song service too!
