When I received the tasting invitation from Shangri-La, I jumped to the opportunity to check out the place since I have never dined at Shangri-La's Rasa Sentosa Resort. Gone were the days where the restaurant were at the different floors of the property. After the multi million makeover, the new Dine on 3 brings one an unique dining concept with a cluster of restaurants and a bar under one roof at level 3 of the resort.
The tasting invitation was to introduce Silver Shell Cafe's "Meet the Meat" Wednesday theme. Every Wednesday dinner time, diners can indulge themselves in an array of meat selections and cooking styles.
Pork Knuckles and Sausages
A section of the restaurant just behind the reception is dedicated for the amazing display of the meats. A hugh selection ranging from pork knuckes, sausages, lamb rack, beef tenderloin, duck confit, roast chicken, roast tomhawk veal and many more.
Roast Chicken and Corns
All the roasts, rosemary and the orange lighting just gave me a very Christmas feel in the whole setup.
Roast Tomahawk Veal
The huge Roast Tomahawk Veal was the most eyes catching of the night and I simply couldn't resist having a slice of it.
Look at all the lovely and beautiful cuts of the meats from the various Meet the Meat selections. My personal favourite was the sausages, beef tenderloin and duck confit. The pork knucles and lamb were good too...oh my god, I just didn't have the stomach to eat them all.
The buffet is not just about meat. Just like any other buffet spread, there were salads, cold cuts, appertisers, cooked food, local fare and desserts too.
The laksa is a MUST TRY here. The laksa broth was robust with dried shrimp flavour.
For the sweet tooth, a decent selection of desserts are available on the buffet spread too.
Worth mentioning is the buffet line at Silver Shell Cafe has a section specially children friendly designed. Both the savoury and sweet food are laid out on a comfortable height for the children to help themselves. Even the plates, bowls and cutlery are in plastic materials. The whole concept is to allow parents to enjoy their meal while knowing their children is safe and being taken care of.
