The other day, my family and I tried the newly Halal
certified restaurant at Fairmont Singapore.
The other two Halal certified restaurants with a buffet spread
that are pretty famous are Carousel and The Straits Kitchen.
So let's see if Asian Market Cafe is as good  :)

Once you step into the restaurantm you'll see this awesome
Gingerbread house. Honestly, I don't know if its edible.
But boy it smelled gooooooood!!! :)

Firstly, the chefs here are SUPER FRIENDLY!!!!
Look, he even posed for me. Super cute hor this uncle. :)

He even served me some some grilled fish and squid. Super nice!!!

Photobucket

We came pretty early. Dinner starts at 6pm actually and
the chefs were still cooking the stuff. :)

Photobucket

Yummy otak otak. :) Yums!

Photobucket

THIS IS MY FAVOURITE DISH EVER.
Grilled fish in sambal! The sambal is so awesome that you just feel
like eating it with ANYTHING. Really! No kidding!!

Photobucket

Oyster omelette!
LOL. What's the circle thing?!?!

The chef was disturbing me actually. He tried to block the dish
by using the spatula. He thinks he's being funny.
I think he's cute! LOL.

Photobucket

Okay, I've got to confess. I'm not a seafood lover.
I'm not really into seafood. I don't know why!

Photobucket

MAKE YOUR OWN LOBSTER LAKSA.

That means, you can customise your laksa, add as much gravy as possible!!

Photobucket

Make your own Pai Tee corner. LOL

Conclusion:

I've been to both the other restaurants namely Straits Kitchen and
Carousel. Straits kitchen doesn't really have much seafood so if you're
a seafood lover, I'd suggest you to go to Asian Market Cafe, Fairmont Singapore.
It'll definitely be worth it eventhough the price is very steep.

If you're a desert person, you might want to choose Carousel or AMC cus
both has really awesome desert. Don't forget to try the durian pudding
at AMC! It's very delicious!
SK's deserts aren't really very impressive IMO.

Honestly, I don't really fancy Carousel's spread. The only
awesome thing about the buffet spread is that it has chocolate fondue and
really super nice bread pudding. Again, IMO. The cakes are really not bad too.

One thing I'll go to SK for is that its Indian cuisine is not bad.
They also have Butter chicken which i REALLY REALLY LIKE.
Oh, SK also has this Hot and Sour broth which is really nice!

Also, I felt that the AMC's chefs are really friendly, they'll talk to you,
ask for your feedback. Not really like the chefs at the other 2 restaurants.

But one thing for sure, I'd choose Asian Market Cafe over the other two
anytime because not only are the dishes delicious, it's desert spread is
very impressive and I LOVE THE GRILLED FISH. (IKAN BAKAR BTW).

Hi! Dinner for weekdays is $55+++ per person. After GST, service charge, I think, $60 plus. :)

hi, do they have spaghetti or steak? any western dishes?

RynaQUE said...

Hi there, no there's no spaghetti or steak for this buffet. The restaurant serves asian cuisine, thus Asian Market Cafe as its name. :)

Dear RynaQUE,

great pictures! :)

although from what i see, i think carousel's seafood and dessert spread far exceeds this one. of course that explains the great difference in price. but that's just my opinion.

ps: the cold seafood selection are not raw (except the oysters and sashimi), most of them are poached or boiled.

cheers!

RynaQUE said...

Hi there! :)
Ah... Thanks for pointing in out. I do agree that Carousel has an awesome dessert spread. Yes also the difference in price. :X LOL.
Thanks for dropping by. Appreciate it. Xoxo

RynaQUE said...

Oops! That one not really. When i reached, all i see is food so i didn't really pay attention to the view. It's just next to Raffles city shopping centre, so... I think view wise not rly uh.

RynaQUE said...

It's connected to Raffles city shopping centre at Cityhall. Level 2 or 3. Please ask around if unsure. :)
