Oscar @ Conrad Contennial Hotel Singapore


In celebration of Singapore's golden jubilee, Oscar at Conrad Contennial Hotel Singapore is having a local theme buffet from 01 July to 31 August 2015. Besides the local fare, there is also the usual spread of seafood, cooked food and desserts.

Cold Seafood and Oysters 4.5/5

I started my dinner with some cold seafood and oysters. What impressed me is that there was 4 different varieties of oysters at the buffet spread. There were Canadian Oyster, Tasmanian Oyster, USA Oyster and Fwe De Claire from France.

Local Fare 4/5

One of the highlight for the local buffet theme at Oscar has to be the cooked food section. I felt like I walked into a local cze char stall with the array of local selection. There were Chai Tow Kway, Wok Fried Beef with Black Pepper Sauce, Braised Sea Cucumber with Mushroom, Deep Fried Pork Rib with Shrimp Paste, Oyster Omelette and Seasonal Vegetable. There were many other local delights such as the Chilli Crab and Curry Fish Head which is not in the picture.

Laksa 4/5

You would probably missed the live station which is located outside the restaurant. The Soup and Noodle Bar offers a choice of tasty broth like Tom Yum, Bak Kut Teh, Prawn Noodle Soup, Fish Noodle Soup Wanton Noodle Soup and Laksa.


For Singapore's 50th birthday, the hotel has created a special SG50 Bandung flavoured Kueh Lapis Cake, spotting the red and white colour of our national flag. It is also available at 1kg at $75.

L'Atelier TiramiSu @ The Central Clarke Quay


If you were to ask me where to get the best tiramisu in Singapore, I would recommend L'Atelier TiramiSu at The Central Clarke Quay. About two years ago, I visited the place and fell in love with their tiramisu. Back then it was more of a takeaway kiosk with only a small sitting area of around 10-12 people. It has recently expanded their place, doubling their seating capacity for a cozier place to enjoy their beautiful tiramisu.

Brulee Tiramisu 4.2/5

Besides celebrating the joy seeing L'Atelier TiramiSu expanded, I am back again to check out two of their new flavours. Starting with Brulee Tiramisu ($7,50) which is a new creation in 2014 to celebrate its 1st anniversary. Upon order, the tiramisu is torched on the spot and then put in the chiller for a minute or two before serving to customer. Result is a layer of sweet bitter topping complementing the wet and moist tiramisu.

Pistachio Tiramisu 4/5

The latest creation in 2015 is the Pistachio Tiramisu ($7.50). The nutty topping gives the tiramisu a nice contrasting texture. If the tiramisu has a denser pistachio flavour then it would be perfect.

Classico 4.2/5

The Classico ($7.20) is still one of favourite at L'Atelier TiramiSu. Without other distraction, this execution allows me to enjoy the classic Italian dessert to the fullest.

The other flavours available at L'Atelier TiramiSu are Lychee, Dark Cherry and Matcha. Besides individual slices, L'Atelier TiramiSu sells the tiramisu in a whole cake too.
