Which are the premium items at SCDH? River Palace's deep fried marble goby and steamed sea bass are good enough for me. And they are free flow. I eat 2 of each on my own, worth the buffet price le.
Same, i prefer river palace too. I find the fishes at river palace better. The later orders of fried fishes at SCDH tends to have this dirty oil smell. I dun get the same thing at river palace.

There is also the duck which i liked too. Then there is also the very decent sashimi. River palace cheaper too, so its river palace FTW for me.

However, like Carey said, if you like spicy food, then SCDH tends to have much better n spicier dishes, esp their 水煮牛肉. SCDH also has much better ambience n view.

Aiyah, both SCDH, river palace as well as cathay are the better chinese ala carte buffets. You will not go wrong with any of them.

i think the main highlight is soup only. wonder is it possible just to have the soup and meat, everything else being fliter out. lol and orange juice is squeezed from oranges or manufactured orange juice ?
Errrr, the shop name is 老火汤 wor. i dun have any expectations for the rest of the food

Of cos you can just have the soup n meat, but still same price Likely its just packaged orange juice rather than freshly squeezed juice.

Did you see that they actually have french fries too? *pengz*

Anyone interested in this? Spread is very small, but if the food is good, esp the soups, still okay.


got people buy this deal?

I am happy buying the soup alone. The soups near my place is good. So I don't see the deal as fantastic.

The fishes really made the deal sweet. Yea, the duck is good too. No loss if the duck skin is a one time order. Other one time orders also not very attractive, like the sharksfin soup and bak gua. Oh, I think I remembered the dong po rou to be very good too.
