Have you heard of the new Southeast Asian-themed buffet in Holiday Inn Orchard City Centre? Window on the Park, the hotel’s in-house restaurant, is presenting their own take on a variety of classic local and regional dishes from different countries in the ASEAN region including Thailand, Malaysia, Indonesia, Vietnam, and Singapore.
Try out some Indonesian favorites like Tekwan and Gulai Udang, or maybe some Thai and Malaysian delights like Papaya salad, Thai crab cakes and steamed Otah. For those who prefer something more familiar, they also offer classic Singaporean favorites like chili or black pepper crab, Roti Prata with Fish Curry, and Kueh Pie Tee.
Come by on the weekends and you can enjoy a special treat. Window on the Park offers pan-seared Boston Lobster from Fridays to Sundays but fastest diners first! The Boston Lobster is so popular that it’s usually snatched up within a few minutes of becoming available. I have not been able to personally enjoy this delicacy but based on my fellow diners’ enthusiasm, I’d wager that it’s pretty good!
For those who love fresh seafood, the buffet offers a variety of options such as baby lobster, chilled prawns, mussels, and scallops on ice. Fresh salmon and tuna sashimi are also available in the seafood section, along with lemons, some soy sauce and wasabi. If I had to choose, I would say the chilled prawns and salmon sashimi were my favorites due to their sheer freshness and succulence.
Apart from the above, regular buffet components such as a bread and pastry section, the create-your-own noodles –combo (Laksa, anyone?) section, and the dessert section are also available. I didn’t want to consume too much carbs to avoid getting full too soon so I skipped both the bread and pastry and noodles sections, but for dessert, the durian pudding has been highly recommended by other diners.
Overall, it’s not a bad option for when you’re looking to dine-in as a hotel guest, or if you want to eat out. With the restaurant’s special 1-for-1 promo going on, why not bring your significant other, a family member, or a group of your friends to relax and unwind after a long day’s work?
The Southeast Asian Buffet is available until November 30, 2017.
