Marriott 1 for 1 dbs cards till end april. 1st 50 reservations each day.
Went for their Ocean to Plate: A Seafood Extravaganza (1 to 15 March 2017). Got baked Lobster Spicy Catalana Style, Oyster Florentine and Mussel. Due to the seafood theme, they had to move their entire desserts to Java+ plus they have Häagen-Dazs that day.

Can someone be a dear and help me out since you guys are like buffet gurus?

http://getcardable.com/blog/14-satis...-want-to-pass/

Would anyone know which of the places listed in this list has 1 for 1 promo and has snow crab legs and foie gras? The list is for easy reference but if you know of somewhere else that's not mentioned here, it would be great if you could let me know too.

It would be really helpful since I don't have the time to google/call each place one by one to ask them. Off the top of your head is fine, not expecting anyone to do homework for me haha. As long as I can get a few places shortlisted, I'll call them myself when I have more time.

Much appreciated and thanks in advance!

J65 at Hotel Jen Tanglin got new chef and launched a new dinner buffet that changes 5 times in a week. I dropped by on a Tuesday when they were showcasing Asian specialties. But other days got seafood or barbecue, etc. Overall, I thought the food improved compared to the previous chef. Price ranges from $55 to $65.

Wrote a more detailed review of this buffet here: http://iwandered.net/2017/03/22/j65-...nights-buffet/

hi guys,

Afaik, most steamboat buffets do not expressly state min 2 diners, so you need to check with them to be sure. Places like seoul garden n sukiya should be okay bah i guess. isteam @ Marina Square should also be fine as they use individual small pots?


hi toons u got get any confirmation on this? I registered already but no replies from them u hv?
You should receive an email from them with a credit card payment form. After you complete n email them back the form, they will email you a confirmation. Can try calling the PIC to confirm.


Would anyone know which of the places listed in this list has 1 for 1 promo and has snow crab legs and foie gras? The list is for easy reference but if you know of somewhere else that's not mentioned here, it would be great if you could let me know too.
Out of the places in the list, a few, like Marriot and Todai, have snow crab legs, but afaik, only 333 has BOTH snow crab legs as well as foie gras ... on Tue dinner as well as Sunday brunch. As for 1 for 1 ...

Actually snow crab legs are quite a common item for the more upmarket buffets. Foie gras however you will usually find them only for Sunday brunches. Eg, 333, Mezza9, Hilton.

Is the weekday semi lunch buffet at Makan@Jen worth it?

Up till now, I still donoe what the basic $12.90++ buffet comprise? Is it just solely 1 main course without any food?

Therefore is recommended to top up for the salad or dessert buffet?
