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

http://getcardable.com/blog/14-satisfying-buffet-promotions-in-2016-you-dont-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? =:p 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-hotel-jen-tanglin-themed-nights-buffet/

hi guys,
know anywhere solo like me can go steamboat buffet?

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? =:p 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 ... :s13:

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?

Yea, initially it was messy.

They started off free for all queuing, but only give 2 seeds, so ppl just queue, get liao, then immediately rejoin the queue n eat on the go. End up forming a circle, the queue dunno where is start n where is end :s13:

Then they made us sit down n serve table by table, but slow cos only 1 lady serving, 2 other guys dunno why just trail behind her each holding a tray ...

Finally, they made us queue roll by roll. Best outta of the 3 methods. Each person can still get 2 portions, or abt 4 seeds each.

Ate until abt 6+pm, dun worry lar, sure eat til full one. In fact at the end, they just leave 2 tables of durians for anyone to take, but by then, most ppl full liao. Really is eat til you gian.

Just tat i prefer to be able to choose which cultivar of durians to eat rather than they serve wat, we eat wat. But just take it easy n enjoy yourself. Can see a few peeps unhappy abt the arrangement ... aiyoh, small thing only, end up making themselves unhappy, wat for?

Durians mostly avg nia though. Some seeds better, some bland etc. For 20, really no complaints lar. They even have some cooked food, but no one took. You could have eaten your dinner there =P
