Window on the Park at Holiday Inn Singapore Orchard City Centre has launched a Boston Lobster Weekend, in addition to its buffet which is themed the Southeast Asian Gastronomic Extravaganza. The spread showcases the warm and robust flavours of dishes from Southeast Asia and our local fare, paying homage to the region’s rich culinary heritage.
Only making an appearance on weekends, the Boston Lobster will be a treat to your precious once-a-week indulgence. Each diner will get a pan-seared Boston Lobster done ala minute, alongside with the buffet spread.
Succulent, firm and sweet, you know that the meat is done right when it can be easily lifted off from its shell. Other lobster dishes are added to the range of delicacies as well, such as Black Pepper Lobster Claws and Baby Lobsters.
Prata with Fish Curry 3.5/5, Sambal Ikan Tenggiri 3/5, Mutton Curry 3.5.5
Indeed, Southeast Asia cuisine is a lot about flavours and spices. If you love curries and spices, you may probably enjoy most of the dishes here, such as the Prata with Fish Curry, Sambal Ikan Tenggiri, Mutton Curry etc.
Despite the aura around the Boston Lobster and seafood, the Local dishes still shine. The Laksa here is still one of the finest, perhaps not the ingredients but the Laksa gravy itself. I have tasted Laksa with really premium ingredients before but the gravy often disappoints.
Kueh Pai Tee 3.5/5, Rojak 3.5/5
The DIY Kueh Pai Tee is finger licking good too. All thanks to the succulent shrimp, creamy mashed egg and crunchy shreds of tapioca which has just the right flavour. The same goes to the DIY Rojak. The prawn paste is the key to making a professional serving of Rojak. I was quite surprised by how moreish my self-made rojak is.
Durian Pengat 4.2/5
For desserts, simply head for the bowl of Durian Pengat sitting in its exclusive fridge. My favourite part is biting into bits of the durian flesh. I still prefer eating durian straight from the seed but this is probably the closest and most satisfying way that you could get to a durian. Of course if durian is not for you, there are other sweet treats around, such as mini cakes, egg tarts and ice cream.
