Laksa 4/5

To warm my stomach a bit, I headed to the live noodle station and tried both the Vietnamese Beef Noodle and Laksa. Cooked to order, it is perfect for those looking for something soupy and comforting.

Cheese Garlic Naan 4.5/5

Tandoori Chicken 3.5/5

One of my favourite stations at Silver Shell Cafe is the Indian station. The beautiful smell of spices perfumed the air from the array of curry dishes on the spread. A must try is the Cheese Garlic Naan. Crispy on the exterior yet fluffy inside from the cheese stuffing. I would also recommend having some of the fish curry and dal to go with the naan.

Char Siew 3.5/5

For those that is looking for a good Hong Kong Roast, you can head to the Chinese station when you can satisfy with the selection of roasts such as roasted duck, roasted pork belly, roasted chicken and char siew.

Clam in White Wine 4.2/5

At the station, I would recommend trying the Clam in Chinese Wine. The sweetness of the clam is further elevated from the aromatic Chinese wine sauce.

Souffle 4/5

Cheese Cake 4/5

Wrapping up the dinner we head to the dessert corner and had the Souffle and Cheese Cake. Lucky I have saved some stomach space for desserts. It seems like the kitchen has a very good pastry chef. I enjoyed both the souffle and cheese cake. It is not easy to do a good souffle and I think the chef nailed it. Furthermore, this is probably the first buffet restaurant that serves souffle.

What makes Silver Shell Cafe different from other restaurants is their thoughtfulness. The family friendly restaurant not only has a kid's corner but recently added the Baby Zone which provides complimentary baby food, in addition to value-added amenities such as milk bottle sterilizers, microwave, baby dining utensils, baby wipes and diapers.

Coffee Break @ Amoy Street Food Centre - Traditional Coffee Stall Runs By Third Generation Siblings

IMG_7768ed

Located on level 2 of Amoy Street Food Centre is Coffee Break which is currently run by the third generation Hainanese siblings. Coffee Break is formerly known as San Hai Yuan as a kopi stall at East Reclamation Road in 1935.

Caramel Latte 4/5

The siblings still brews their coffee in the traditional way, In additional to their traditional Hainanese coffee, they have introduced flavoured lattes to satisfy the new generation of coffee drinkers. When we were there, we noticed a long queue of office executives ordering their iced lattes. Hence we got a cup of Iced Caramel Latte ($3.80) to try. Their blend of coffee was quite fragrant and smooth. I like that it was not overly sweet too. Indeed the iced latte was the perfect dream for the hot afternoon weather.

Black Sesame Toast 4.2/5

Coffee/Tea and toast is a popular Singapore breakfast since the 1930s. At Coffee Break, besides the normal kaya toast, it also offers an innovative twists on the local breakfast favourite such as Earl Gray Greme, Black Sesame and Cinnamon Sugar

Black Sesame Toast 4.2/5

We had the Black Sesame Toast ($3 for a portion). A portion comes with 2 slices of bread. The bread is sliced thinly and toasted until very crispy. The black sesame spread and the butter works excellently together for an very enjoyable breakfast.

Now run by the third generation, I am encourage to see young hawkers inheriting the tradition and still brewing from steep metal pots and coffee socks. At the same time, it has also moved on with time and innovative to cater for the younger generations while not forgetting the tradition.
