FOOD, Living in... Singapore, Uncategorized PHOENIX HOTEL GARDEN CAFE 24 December 2006

Went to Phoenix Hotel for an International Buffet lunch.. I hadn’t been there for ages! At SG@$26++ per person, it’s pretty reasonable considering there is a whole myriad of dishes to choose from – Western, Indian, Indonesian, Singaporean, etc. I didn’t manage to “eat my way around the menu”, but I came pretty close, think I missed out on just 2 dishes 😛 The whole restaurant was lit up beautifully with Christmas lights, and was soon packed with people busy stuffing their faces for lunch 😉

All the food was pretty brilliant, but the star dishes were most definitely the Roti Prata – cooked right in front of you, it was fluffy, crispy and oh-so-divine! It came with chicken curry and mutton curry, both of which were delectable and creamy. Anyhow, I’ll just let the photos do the talking!

    i think you are secretly converting all of us pees to becoming foodies.

    anyway, i just went to The Line at Shangri-La for their buffet dinner and it was Really Gut Bursting, (yes, with a Capital ‘R’). The best place of it? they served candy floss.

    i have 5 sticks of it.

    Everything is so pretty! Not to mention the food looks delicious. 😀 By the way, congrats on your Lasik surgery going well! I’d like to have that done someday in a few years.
