Cheers to our 4th at Rise, Marina Bay Sands

As a man of few words, Paul is truly the kind of guy who can keep a secret and a surprise really really well.  Take for example our recent 4th wedding anniversary celebration, who would have thought that he has been planning and saving up for a nice dinner date at Rise in Marina Bay Sands for months leading up to that special day. No amount of hinting or bugging from my end would make him spill the beans. The only hint he gave me was "to eat light for lunch" on that day. I did was told by just having a bowl of soup and a couple of pork siomais to go with it. At exactly 630PM I sprung out of my office chair and forced myself to close my laptop and to get ready for my dinner date. Work can wait but my date won't be very happy if I kept him waiting. :P

We headed to Shoppes @ Marina Bay Sands and quickly headed towards the hotel where Paul has made reservations at Rise. Ohhhh I was so excited! After watching an episode of Mega Food in Nat Geo on Marina Bay Sands we've been planning to have a staycation at MBS for months now.

Rise is the all-day international buffet restaurant of Marina Bay Sands. Located at the center of the ground floor, it has a big capacity as this is also where hotel guests can have their breakfast here. I have to admit that the choices are quite limited but hey, it's truly quality over quantity.

Here are some of the sections that you should check out: Cheese and Tapas, Japanese (Sushi/Sashimi), Bread, Olives and Mediterranean dips, Soups, Asian, Western (Steak), Indian, Chinese, Pasta and Dessert. I particularly enjoyed the cheese spread as well as the wide variety of olives available. Yum!

Look at the steak! It was very tender and good! How I wish though that they also have creamed spinash and sauteed mushrooms as sides.

The pasta section is where you can have any type of pasta dish specially created for you. Normally though, I stay away from as much carbs as possible except for sushi which I just can't resist! You can also have your own noodle soup created to your liking too.

Over at the Chinese section, they have noodles, rice and some peking duck. Sadly the duck was a tad too tough already to be enjoyed thoroughly.

What made our experience at Rise truly amazing was the spot on service. Nothing that we're there for our wedding anniversary, our thoughtful server presented us with a cake to enjoy. How sweet, right? This was a really yummy cake which we had together with our dessert choices -- Creme Brulee and a yummy scoop of Strawberry-Basil Sorbet.

So far, my favorite includes the hummus, soft cheeses with nuts and honey, salmon sashimi and the sorbet. Yum! I can't wait to go back soon.
