Back to Straits Cafe after a long absence. As with experience, the spread and quality of the food in general are quite good when there's no promotion. Even the staff i spoke to tells me to avoid the voucher promotion periods! Morale of the story: $$$ determines the food quality and spread.







Their signature laksa





Pork knuckle, fragrant pork rice (very nice, even better than typical claypot rice), braised duck, steamed minced pork, roast beef, etc. Generally, all the cooked food are up to standard.





Stir fried hor fun





For the cold section, there's the usual oysters, snow crab, prawns, sashimi, etc.




Dessert (i've lost count on the no. of durian penyats that i've consumed)





Like their cakes, so i bought a 500g white chocolate mousse cake as takeaway.

Hey guys. I called 10 at claymore just now and they informed me that their festive buffet starts 1dec onwards, @72++ for weekday dinner. Good news is that there's a credit card promo, 3 dine 1 free! not applicable on eve and Christmas Day though.

Actually, if they still have the 3 pay 2 cc promo, then the voucher is actually abt the same price. Only thing is more convenient cos no need multiples of 3. So the spread also lousier during the days with the 3 pay 2 cc promo?

Hows the snow crab legs? Tats the biggest disapointment i had at Straits. They used to serve good snow crab legs.

Not sure about the 3 pay 2 promo..I was referring to voucher promotions. In any case it's better to avoid any of their promotions. I will call to enquire before making a reservation.


The snow crabs legs are decent for that night. They are not mushy and they seemed to be quite fresh.


Actually, if they still have the 3 pay 2 cc promo, then the voucher is actually abt the same price. Only thing is more convenient cos no need multiples of 3. So the spread also lousier during the days with the 3 pay 2 cc promo?
