A trip to Singapore is not complete without enjoying the many hawker centers scattered around the country. Nothing beats the real thing as you enjoy a plate of Hainanese Chicken Rice, Lamb Briyani and a lot more! I love Singaporean food and the simplicity of it.
This is the reason why I happily headed to Dusit Thani Manila's Basix All-Day Dining Restaurant for lunch yesterday. To celebrate Singapore's National Day, they are having a 10-day long buffet special highlighting a number of Singaporean favorites. Spearheading this special promotion is Executive Sous Chef Liew Tian Heong of the famous Chatterbox restaurant of Meritus Mandarin Hotel. Chatterbox is known to have one of the yummiest Hainanese Chicken Rice as this has been regularly mentioned in Singaporean food blogs. I will make a mental note to try this on our next visit.
Yesterday, I had the privilege to sample a couple of dishes that will be included in the lunch and dinner buffet of Basix from August 6 to 16, 2012. Let me share them with you:
I tried the Special Chicken which looked like a deep-fried prawn strip to me and I loved it! I was surprised that it was made of chicken instead. The Marinated Mushroom was good as it made use of a number of herbs and spices common in Singaporean dishes. The Mango and Prawn Salad was refreshing and yummy too. The only thing that I didn't like was the Achar Pickles as it was too spicy for me.
To make your dining experience more exciting, all guests who avails of the buffet will get the chance to win gift vouchers from Dusit Thani Manila and one lucky diner will get to win a Singapore Getaway Package which includes a round trip airfare for two and an overnight accommodation at the Meritus Mandarin Orchard Hotel in Singapore! Winners will be drawn on August 17, 2012!
These Singaporean dishes will be part of the daily buffet spread where you will also be able to enjoy a wide array for International fares like my favorite sushi, cheese platter, shrimp hakaw and a lot more! Drinks (iced tea, soda and juices) are also included in the buffet too.
