This recent staycation, was no different. As much as our comfy bed made it feel so good to just sleep up until noon, we resistated the temptation just to be able to check The Line out. This is Shangri-la Hotel's in-house all-day dining restaurant. It's the counterpart of our local Circles or Heat from Makati Shangri-la and EDSA Shangri-la Hotels respectively. Since it's Shangri-la, we expected just the best spread.
We got to the restaurant at 9AM and it was already bustling with families, couples and big groups of guests having their breakfast. Luckily, getting a table for two is normally easy. Even before we settled into our table, we were told to check the buffet area out and to begin helping ourselves with the wide variety of dishes available. I believe there were a total of 11 stations for breakfast that day -- Congee/Noodles, Indian, Malaysian, Chinese, Japanese, Egg/Potatoes/Meats, Bread/Pastries, Pancakes/Waffles/Ice Cream, Fruits, Drinks and Cheese/Cold Cuts/Cereals.
They also had a number of dimsum specialties at the Chinese station, some homemade prata and curry at the Indian station and bowls of cold soba and edamame at the Japanese station. I loved the dimsum which were so delicious and went well with the stir-fry noodles that I got.
I love how varied the choices were and the selections were really delicious. I enjoyed my Nasi Lemak rice paired with some Roast Duck and a few pieces of sausages too. Paul also tried the congee with his favorite you tiao (doughnut fritters) which he said tasted just like the ones we would have in Hong Kong a.k.a. the real thing.
Having breakfast at The Line truly made our morning extra bright and happy. This definitely is one of the best staycations that we've had as every minute spent at Shangri-la Hotel was simply perfect. I heard the The Line also has an amazing lunch and dinner buffet spread. Has anyone tried it already?
The Line is located at the Lower Lobby (fronting the pool), Tower Wing, Shangri-la Hotel, Singapore. For reservations, please call 6213-4275
