Café Mosaic – Truly Singapore Flavours Seafood Buffet [MEDIA INVITE]

Café Mosaic at Carlton Hotel Singapore has refreshed its buffet spread and presents a Truly Singapore Flavours Seafood Buffet. This buffet is available on Dinner from Thursdays to Saturdays and Lunch on Sundays.

Highlights of the newly curated spread are:

Oysters. They are big in size, sweet, plump and juicy. On top of the lemon wedges, you can pair the oysters with red vinaigrette or hot sauce.

Seafood on Ice – Cold Crab Legs, Scampi, Mussels, Black Mussels, Poached Prawns, Salmon Sashimi & Tako Sashimi. The poached prawns are sweet and crunchy, while the cold crab legs are sweet and refreshing. The same can be said for the scampi, though you need to do some work before getting to that sweet flesh. The salmon sashimi is of a good grade and we sure have plenty of them.

The Carving Table – Slow Roasted Pepper Crusted O.P Beef & Oven Roasted Herbs Leg of Lamb. Roast meat is my weakness when I come for a buffet. The roast beef is cooked to the point of medium rare and the roast lamb is juicy, succulent and full of flavour. I am not a black pepper sauce fan, however, the version here is pretty good, not overloaded with pepper.

Singapore Rojak aka The Singapore salad: I like this DIY rojak because I can put as many “you tiao” (fried dough) as I like. The hei ko (prawn paste) is solid, plus the peanut topping is fragrant as well. On a rotational basis, Café Mosaic also serves fruits rojak and gado gado.

Prawn Noodle Soup. The broth is robust and packed with the essence of pork and prawns. The small pork ribs are fork tender while the prawns are fresh and crunchy. Together with the yellow noodles, it is a comforting dish.

Singapore Chilli Crayfish & Thai Moo Ping. The Singapore chilli crayfish is surely packed with punch. It is spicy, smooth, silky, eggy and it just opens up my appetite. The chilli sauce absorbs into the flesh of the crayfish and I enjoyed it with the fried mantou as well. Meanwhile, the Thai Moo Ping is well-marinated and oozing with the pork juice.

Desserts. The spread includes selections of cakes, local desserts, cut fruits and also ice cream. The Mango Pudding, Mango Mouse Cake and Cheese Cake are my picks.

Tea and coffee are provided, including local drinks. Since they serve ice cream, I decided to make an affogato to finish my meal.

A notable mention of some dishes that we did not manage to try, but look yummy: Sushi and Barramundi with Black Bean Sauce.

Overall, the Truly Singapore Flavours Seafood Buffet provided a considerable spread of international and local flavours that will please diners. The quality of the food is very good and they are delicious as well. If you are looking for a buffet place, do consider Café Mosaic. Cheers!
