Tapas food but a Japanese twist to it! Loved all their dishes especially the Rosti Mentai (bottom of the picture) tho it was slightly on the oily side but the tangy potato gave the entire dish a interesting texture! The beers complimented well with all the dishes especially the dried stingray fin! However I must say that food was on a rather pricier price point for its portion. Overall I had a good dining experience ◡̈

2) Caribbean Jerk Shrimp Skewer (S$32.95): Marinated grilled shrimp skewer with pineapple and peppers, served with coconut and kidney beans on basmati rice.  I really love the mouth-watering smoky flavour of the juicy ingredients.

3) Brazilian Chicken Bobo (S$29.95): The chicken meat, carrot and potatoes are slow-cooked to tender perfection in a rich red coconut gravy.  Very flavourful and really comforting to eat.

The “Taste of Tropicana” menu is available till 29 April 2019.  Don’t miss these delightful island-inspired dishes!

What’s in this meal ($13.30)

Salad Bowl A ($10.80)
Base: Romaine Lettuce + Mesclun Mix
Cold deli: Ham + Shrimp (+$0.50)
Crunchies: 2x Hard boiled eggs, cherry tomatoes, cucumber
Dressing: Caesar

Add on: Iced rooibos tea ($2)

Overall I think Salad Bowl A is more worth it than Bowl B because you get two proteins rather than one for a cheaper price. However most of the cold deli aren’t cooked or seasoned, so it really just boils down to what you’re looking for. Shrimp is a pretty good choice, and I think it’s worth the $0.50 top up for it. The ham is much better than the bacon option as I found the bacon to be overly salty but the ham was just nice when eaten with the salad. Caesar dressing here isn’t very creamy or thick, but you can be sure it’ll be slathered all over your salad and the taste is still not bad.

The iced rooibos tea was quite good. You can actually taste the mild heat of the rooibos, and it’s unsweetened. However, I felt the drink was way too cold. Too much ice added into an already chilled drink, and it felt uncomfortable to drink after a while. Overall this definitely wasn’t worth $2 though. Would not recommend this add on.

I can’t name all my kuehs, but the Penang buffet at Copthorne King’s Princess Terrace Cafe has one of the largest kueh selections I have ever come across in a buffet and they are all so good! My favourites include Kueh Beng Kah, Kueh Dar Dar, Kueh Seri Muka and this amazing pancake looking kueh that is served with caramelised banana sauce😍 Apart from kuehs, there is a live Ban Chang Kueh station where a super crispy peanut pancake is made on the spot and a Tau Huey station where you get to add regular syrup or gula melaka over the super soft soya beancurd❤️ Really spoilt for choice for deserts - and I don’t even have a sweet tooth to begin with (though the desserts are not too sweet I must say☝🏻)!

Back to the main course, there are Penang classics such as Penang Fried Kway Teow, Assam Laksa, Pork Curry, Satay and Duck with Salted Vegetable Soup. But what I really like is the Pork Trotters in Black Vinegar - it has just the right balance of sweet and sour and it is very addictive! This is also the first time I saw an automatic egg cooker - quite impressive😱 To be honest, I don’t have enough stomach space to try everything every time I am here because there is just too much food to try and limited capacity😛

If you are wondering about the price, I made my reservation via Eatigo and managed to get a 50% discount ($26.90++ for buffet lunch on weekends) woohoo🎉 If you are looking for a good buffet that serves homely comfort food without burning a hole in your pocket, this is a good place to try:)!

Intrigued by the size of the tiger prawns in their Beehoon dish, we ordered their garlic prawns that came with a generous 8 huge tiger prawns for under $20. Fresh and big, it was really a good deal for the price. The garlic accentuated the taste of the prawn; although it might not appeal to all.
Their fried oyster omelette did live up to the reviews we read, with plump oysters. Similar to their white beehoon, their braised pork trotter Beehoon was a comfort-food dish with that home-cooked flavour. It was good that the Beehoon wasn’t oily nor too salty like some others.
So to get away from the bustling restaurants in Orchard, Maddie’s may be a good option for some simple 1-person meal or for a small group.

Imagine more than 50 delicate handmade dim sums and signature a la carte delicacies in one buffet.

That’s what you get in Hai Tien Lo’s refreshed dim sum buffet, best enjoyed with the company of your fellow dim sum-loving friends.

Look forward to tasting authentic Cantonese flavours with their new offerings such as the Steamed Charcoal Barbecue Pork Bun with Black Truffles (松露金炭叉烧包) and Steamed Pork and Prawns Dumplings with Fish Roe (魚籽燒賣皇). bit.ly/haitienlopanpac

The popular Osakan-style kushikatsu restaurant is currently having a Mega Cheese Festival!😋🧀🧀 Do yourself a favour and get the Chiritori Cheese Nabe, my favorite dish among all! You can choose between marinated chicken/beef/pork, and stir them together with melted cheese sauce. Very rich and flavourful!🤩

Btw I found this resto very interactive. You can cook your own cheesy nabe, DIY your takoyaki, and even mash potato salad! They also have fun drinking games. The atmosphere there was boisterous, definitely a fun place to visit with friends.💯

🔸Mega Cheese Chikuwa Kushikatsu: $6
🔸Unagi Kushikatsu:$2.50
🔸Hanpen Kushikatsu: $1.50
🔸Mini Taiyaki Kushikatsu: $2
🔸New Kushikatsu Dipping Sauces: $4 for a set of 3 (chilli crab, nachos cheese, Japanese curry)
🔸DIY Takoyaki: prawn ($10), tako ($10), unagi ($11), add cheese for $3

All the dishes were on point and the service was fantastic. Glad that we came in a group so that we could try a wide variety:

2) Fried crispy squid. Springy fresh and #yums (S$12+)
3) Smoky roasted prawns with nori cilantro butter and housemade shio kelp. #takemymoney (S$16+)
4) Black grouper in Cantonese style broth. (S$26+)
5) Roasted black grouper in creamy mussel vichyssoise with pickled shimeji. Love the pairing. (S$28+)
6) Seabass with an #umami nori tagliatelle, enoki and pickled radish. (S$20+)
7) Pan seared seabass with roasted pepper puree and pickled mussels. (S$22+) Enjoy #burpple 1-for-1 for pasta and big plates. #happybelly #willbeback
