High Tea With A Dessert Buffet Enjoyed the 5 ceramic tin high tea (~$49++) from Colony in a beautiful colonial setting 馃彌 Started off the set with a choice of alcoholic beverage: Champagne/ Raspberry or Lemongrass Prosecco. Opted for the raspberry cocktail which was pretty and sweet yet the alcoholic taste was still there. . Went on to the savouries: consisting of seafood, beef pastries, chicken puff etc. Personally liked the chilli crabmeat with sambal crackers [pic3] and lobster sandwich with mustard sauce [pic4] and pickled onions the most. Chilli crabmeat sauce was sweet and thick, and the crab was a decent portion!馃 鈥淒ragons beard鈥 with prawns was also yummy and interesting 馃崵馃[pic5] . Having a sweet tooth, the dessert buffet was my favourite part.馃槏 Scones, tarts, cakes, Madeline鈥檚, Nonya kuehs, ice cream, chocolates, gummies+ popcorn was all part of the buffet. There was a peanut pancake (roll??) station, which was a peanut roll with ice cream and BOY IT WAS GOOD. Sweetness of the taro ice cream and the saltiness of the peanut surprisingly complemented each other, and I ate the whole thing. Thought the addition of kuehs were a nice touch too and enjoyed the kueh lapis with prunes, ang ku kueh with coconut filling, and rainbow kueh a lot. For cakes, the Oreo cheesecake was hands down probably the best at the cake section, or maybe the chocolate mousse. Passed on the ice cream since I was so full but it looked really gao 馃崷 [partial selection shown in vid] . Ended off with the colony signature tea with a choice of ginger or lavender syrup (I chose lavender, and no regrets, it wasn鈥檛 too sweet and there was a slight lavender taste too)
One Of The Better Ones Went for the Sunday Dinner Buffet. First of all, Super classy and gorgeous setting. Staffs were extremely friendly and helpful and attentive too! Double thumbs up馃憤馃憤 Onto the food, fresh seafood available such as King Crab legs and mussels and loved the oysters!! Local cuisines were done well (Laksa and Char Siew) the Chili Crab sauce was too starchy and sort of sour but still loved it with the mantou and the crab was 馃憤Special shoutout to the popiah which is unique as there was a good prawn taste to it and crunchy bits. Definitely love it!! Except the satay which the meat were too tough and sauce were too thick. My favourite of the night was the Wagyu Beef with the Truffle Mashed Potato, so so good especially with the mushroom sauce. If only I wasn鈥檛 already full, would have more of it. 馃憣 The dessert however, mostly was a let down馃槙... with the coconut sorbet I suspect they used coconut milk?! 馃槹 It was really bad. Two of the good ones was the Pandan pie cake and highly recommend the peanut wrap which comes with taro ice cream inside. Heavenly 馃い Ended of with a complimentary chocolate cake for a birthday celebration which was pretty good. Overall a pretty good experience and might return but the desserts have more room for improvement
Delightful Cheese Room Brunch at the Colony is a very, special treat. The champagne, the oysters, the seafood are all grand. But the grandest part of all is the cheese buffet ... imagine a room just full of French cheeses! Have been a couple of times and will be back again. http://bossyflossie.com/colony-restaurant-champagne-brunch/

Every time we come, there are some special. Today鈥檚 special is Siu Mai. I usually dine here with the Wife using #Amex because there is 50% off for 2 persons. Earlier today I googled to see which other card gives similar discount for 4 adults. Found out that #HSBC gives 1-for-1 for up to 8 adults. The weird thing is HSBC offer till 30 Apr then restarts a few months later. Summary: 2 person use Amex or HSBC. More than 2 use HSBC.
Peranakan Buffet TGIF from Ellenborough Market Cafe馃寛! I鈥檓 soooooo full from the buffet dinner (1-for-1 promo for HSBC cardholders whee) but I enjoyed every bit of it - the lovely vibes and environment, great service and the food is not bad too! My favourites of the night would be the roast beef, beef stew, kueh pie tee, ah balling, fried durian dumpling and bread pudding. Time to redeem myself over the weekends馃槄
