As Singapore celebrates the nation’s 50th birthday, it is also time for Singaporeans to indulge in our national past-time over the long weekend – finding and enjoying good food!
I saw a friend’s post on facebook asking where to find a good SG50 buffet:
I couldn’t resist the troll comment. Jokes aside, I was invited to the media preview for Capella Singapore‘s one-day-only National Day Brunch on Sunday, 9 August at their in-house restaurant, The Knolls.
It was mouthwatering good stuff which I find worth recommending. The chefs took liberty to give a fresh spin to some signature Singaporean hawker fares. Many have done this before, but what I like is that they kept the flavours close to the original.
Instead of trying to get a reservation at the restaurants and hotels in the marina bay area, why not head down to Sentosa for your SG50 celebration meal?
Here are some of the special SG50 dishes we sampled:
Other than the specially prepared dishes for SG50, you also get to enjoy the regular items from their brunch buffet. The spread may not be as wide as some other hotels’ offerings, but all the items are carefully curated, prepared with only the very best of ingredient:
The oyster bar is very popular, featuring freshly shucked oysters from around the world like Ireland, Canada, France, and the United States:
I particularly like their dessert selections. Many are so pretty that I feel bad when biting into them!
There is also a roving live band who will go around to serenade guests, even singing songs at your requests:
