Oscar's Cafe & Terrace @ Conrad Centennial Singapore

Sorry for the long hiatus! Was busy with examinations and my post examinations activities. HAHAHAH. There’s so much I want to achieve this holiday, but there isn’t enough time! And I’m going off to Genting this coming Wednesday with my secondary school friends! With the much dreaded long bus rides. Swusan and I are planning a overnight game/chitchat session so the both of us can zonk out on the bus and not deal with the motion sickness.

So amidst my examinations last last week, I went to Oscar’s cafe & Terrace @ Conrad Centennial  Singapore for a buffet lunch to celebrate Zhian’s sister’s birthday. I met Zhian at Bras Basah Station after my paper, and we made our way down to Promenade Station, which is just a few stops away.

Unfortunately for us, we took the wrong exit out. HAHAHAHA. So we ended up at Millennia Walk and had to walk back to Conrad.

Loving the Christmas atmosphere around Singapore. This is the Christmas Teddies(tree) put up at Conrad's lobby. I still prefer normal green Christmas tree.

I was telling Mr Gan that I think the staircase is nice cause it reminds me of a scene in Hana Yori Dango whereby one of the rich actress walked down this kinda stairs in her gown. Such a princess moment. But Mr Gan said that I’m outdated. WHAT! Timeless okay!

One of the highlights of the buffet got to be the desserts. Hence they deserved to be showcased first. This is just a part of the desserts selection.

I tried the berries pot, the orangey-red concoction in the middle, and I must say it's very refreshing. it's perfect to be taken after your main courses and before starting your desserts. The sweet and sour taste will surely open up your appetite for even more desserts. This is certainly something different from all the other hotel buffets I tried before.

And yet again, not many hotel buffets offer chocolate balls. I tried the passion fruit chocolate ball and I returned to take another. Just fantastic.

Apart from the above, they also offer Waffle. Me being a serious Waffle eater, I must say that their waffle is FANTASTIC. Almost comparable to that of Gelare! (That being said, if you are not a fan of Gelare, then perhaps you won't find it nice) The ice-creams offered are also very nice. It's creamy and not very sweet! Though they only offer 3 flavours – Chocolate, Vanilla and Strawberry, the taste of the ice-cream more than compensates for it’s few choices. Try to save some tummy space for dessert!

Their salad station is one of the biggest I have seen. And the unique thing about their salad station is their cheese bowl as shown above. The bowl is carved out of cheese and you can pour your salad into it to stir it. But personally I think their salad isn’t that impressive to me although they have a huge variety of greens and toppings.

Okay their main courses aren’t that impressive, but not bad as well. Their fried rice is very good though! And I’m not sure whether is it because they are serving Turkey that’s why there isn’t any beef.
They have a noodles station located outside which serves Laksa, Wanton Noodles and Prawn Noodles.  I only tried the Laksa and I think it’s good. Not too spicy and the noodles managed to soak up the taste.

Unfortunately I don’t take seafood. But from the responses I gathered from Zhian and family, it isn’t that impressive.

On a whole I think the buffet is good considering the price you are paying. I think it’s below $50 per pax. I think I will go back there someday to have their dessert again! Their buffet lunch is 12pm-2.30pm daily if I’m not wrong!

On a completely separate note, a woman asked me how to get to Millennia Walk while I was on the train the next day. Since I just been to Millennia Walk the day before, I was 100% sure that she had to alight at promenade station. Guess what? After I told her, she replied with a

“ARE YOU SURE THIS IS REALLY THE WAY?!?!”

Talk about obnoxious woman carrying an LV bag. I don’t owe you a living woman. If you don’t trust me why would you even ask me? pffff. That being said, she still doesn’t trust me and alighted at esplanade.
Angrily I tweeted, “Obnoxious LV woman alighted at esplanade to go Millennia Walk”.

My friend tweeted back, “SHE WILL NEVER FIND IT!! HAHAHHAHA”
