Put seafood and buffet together, and I am sure many faces will light up with tummies growling. Plaza Brasserie at PARKROYAL on Beach Road is having a “Seafood Fiesta” from now till May 31, and this is not just any ordinary seafood buffet.
Other than the usual crowd pleasers such as Oysters, Flower Crabs, Tiger Prawns, Australian Queen Scallops and Black Mussells – all on the ice section – the cooked seafood with an Asian twist appeals to me much more.
The theme is “Best of Asia” with many dishes having flavours of Singapore, Malaysia and Thailand. Think about Hong Kong style Red Garoupa, Thai-style Sea Bass, Sotong with Sambal, Nonya Sauce Steamed Fish, Black Pepper White Clams, Stir-fried Crab with Salted Egg Yolk and Green Curry Crab! (Read about their Crab Buffet, The Seafood Buffet, Dragon Feast and Grandma’s Favourites).
Are you salivating yet?
My favourite part of the buffet is the Teppanyaki live station (only during weekends) where the chef will cook a selection of prawns, stingray, sotong and salmon right in front of you. Grab the fresh oysters and sushi nearby while you are waiting, or better still, have a quick chat with the chef who is shy but friendly.
The items on the buffet rotate, so it can be ‘heng-sway’ because some of the Asian selection is indeed better than others. Some of the crab dishes, were a tad dry for my liking. I love my claws juicy and saucy.
Among my preference, a simple dish of Penang Fried Kway Tiao with Seafood, and Stingray baked in banana leaves aka otah otah style. The chef who prepared these particular street style food is from Penang, therefore there is a certain level of authentically and home-cooked savour in these humble dishes.
The thing about having seafood in Singapore is that the prices can be quite exorbitant and arbitrary at times, like I sometimes cannot fathom how some steamed fish at a zhi char stall can cost above hundred dollar.
The price of the Seafood Fiesta at Plaza Brasserie at PARKROYAL on Beach Road is $53 for weekday and $58 for weekend dinners, and you probably can get your money’s worth if you are a huge crab, oysters and fish fan.
Best of Asia Seafood Fiesta at Plaza Brasserie is on till May 31
Price: Adult $53++, Child $32++ (Mon-Thu dinner); Adult $58++, Child $35++ (Fri-Sun dinner)
