You can treat your tastebuds with the extensive spread of amazing local dishes. LD and I visited Oscars for their weekday buffet and we are still mesmerized by the amazing spread.

Asian Caesar Salad. The famous Caesar salad at Oscar’s is taking on an Asian theme. Condiments include Ikan Bilis, Pickled Radish, Stewed Peanuts, Fried Fish Skin, Mushrooms, Quail Eggs, Pork Floss and Sambal Dressing. It is then tossed inside the big parmesan cheese wheel so it is evenly coated with cheese. The final taste is creamy, rich and uniquely Asian. Yummy.

Hand Pulled Beef Brisket in Bak Pau at Live Station. The pau is soft and fluffy, while the beef brisket is moist, juicy and melts in your mouth. The grilled pineapples and chipotle mayonnaise gave the pau creamy, spicy twang with a sweet tangy finish at the end.

Teochew-style Braised Duck. The skin of the duck is soft and just melts in your mouth. While the flesh is succulent and thoroughly infused with the braising sauce. It is braised together with firm beancurd that is soft and tasty.

Kari Daging – Malaysian Style Beef Curry. Solid flavour that is filled with curry spices. The curry is thick and intense and the cubed beef will need some chewing to extract more flavours. Good to eat with White Rice.

Cantonese Roast Station. Not a station that I will normally visit during buffet. However, I was pleasantly surprised by the Cantonese roast here. The chicken is juicy and succulent, while the roast pork has a serious crispy skin and tender meat. The char siew is fatty and sweet, but it can do with more charred.

Muar Otah-Otah Fried Rice. Delicious cube otah tossed with al dente fried rice. The fried rice is flavourful, while the otah has a bit crunch and moist internally. The otah cubes are evenly spread and you can taste it in each bite.

Laksa. Check out the outdoor noodle station to taste this Singapore local dish. The rice noodle is smooth and silky, while the laksa broth is thick, solid and filled with spices.


Moving to desserts, Bicentennial Lapis is a must try and it is also the special creation to celebrate Singapore’s birthday this year. You can taste the milky rose syrup flavour, with the moist lapis cake and chewiness of the bubble tea pearl.

Durian Moose Cake. The cream and sponge cake are soft and moist, paired nicely with delectable durian moose. The flavour of the durian is mellow and not overpowering.

The rest of the desserts line up. The rest of the desserts are equally good. This round I had pandan infused tiramisu with milo powder, traditional bread and butter pudding, jasmine tea crème brulee, jackfruit compote panna cotta and mango & mint chantilly. Not to mention crowd favourites like waffles and pancakes with ice creams.
