A friend was showing photos from her staycation at W Hotel and that was met with “wooos” and “wahss” of envious, which is probably one of the hippest and coolest hotels in Singapore (and most would said Taipei as well).

The Kitchen Table at Sentosa, W Hotel’s buffet restaurant serves up “Food from the Heart”, with 6 live cooking stations of international selection. Surprisingly, there was a huge proportion of Asian and local cuisines such as Chili Flower Crabs, Laksa, Hokkien Mee ,Tandoors dishes and an assortment of Dim Sum when I was there.

Known for a high ‘hipster’ quotient, The Kitchen Table does not disappoint in the creative and stylish aspect, with oversized giant tables hanging from the ceilings (to reflect on its name), rubber ducky pepper shakers, psychedelic coloured glasses, and water containers like flowering water cans.

My favourite section was the Italian pasta where there are bowls and bowls of pasta of various sorts, seafood and ingredients, 4 types of sauces where you would customise a personalised Italian dish cooked a-la minute to your liking. Plus, the chef was sincere in a shy type of way, but was still happy enough to entertain my many questions.

I usually do not expect much about the local street foods served in hotel buffets. To me, there are usually placed there for the tourists, and are muted in taste to suit the Westerners.

To The Kitchen Table’s credits, they actually prepare the local dishes quite satisfactory (for hotel buffet standards). For once, I did not expect to see Chilli (flower) Crabs with tender deep fried mantou, and that was quickly swept up, by me. (And I was wondering why it was left there untouched for a long while, because in most other hotel buffets, that would be the first to go. Ah… the foreigners do not go for that.)

The Hokkien mee with generous ingredients and sauce, tasted quite hawker-authentic. But some of the other dishes, such as the Laksa, was not as spicy or milky as I wished for, most likely muted down.

I could imagine some patrons would feel that The Kitchen Table could have a bigger space and wider selection, piled with trays and trays of food for its weekend brunch price.

They are possibly going for quality more than quantity. Sashimi pieces are freshly cut, served in limited slices. The sushi comes in pairs placed in square bright coloured boxes. Pizzas are wood-fired one by one. Desserts are served in small cups and glasses.

So while this buffet does not give the impression of wide, massive and huge, it suits those wishing to have a lazy afternoon taking bite sized portions of everything.

Service is one of the best I experienced in recent times locally. There is always someone walking around with a dim sum tray, pizza plate, or serving shots of special concoction (I had a yummy wasabi shake shot.) When you ask for something, you would be met with a smile. At the live stations, the chefs would earnestly cook a beautifully plated dish to your preference.
