Stepping in, you would realise there are two mini-floors of food which provides a spread of both local and international flavours.
You can choose to sit indoors decorated in the classic “Fullerton Hotel” European look and comfort, or dine alfresco to enjoy some breeze and view, especially during night time.
While Town Restaurant serves International cuisine with a focus on local, Japanese and Italian, I propose that you should try some of these “Local Signatures”.
Top on my list is the Town Laksa, with rice vermicelli cooked with prawns, quail eggs, beancurd puff in a moderately spicy coconut gravy base. (Available both in the buffet and ala carte.)
I thought almost every component that went inside were tasty, including the slices of fishcake. The accompanying aromatic gravy was thick, flavourful and packed a light punch.
The Fullerton’s Hainanese Chicken Rice was ranked top on their recommendations, alongside Cantonese-style roast meats and crispy pork belly.
Though I thought the rice could have been more fragrant.
Other stand-outs include Nasi Goreng, Bak Kut Teh, Fish Curry and Char Kway Teow, available on rotational basis.
If you come from Mondays to Wednesdays, and Saturdays, there is ocean fresh seafood available, with the option of barbecued items like grilled lobsters and sausages for the buffet dinner.
Some may think that Town Restaurant is just a buffet place, but they do offer ala carte dishes.
The newly introduced Weekend Power Lunch Specials will be suitable for those on a search for corporate lunches with ‘upmarket-local’, pasta or Japanese food.
You can choose to tuck into a bowl of steaming Town Laksa, Bak Chor Mee, Aburi Kaisen Chirashi Don of cuts of premium seafood and raw fish, or Make-Your-Own-Pasta lunch with choice of seasonal ingredients (All $26++ each).
Surprisingly, the Bak Chor Mee was quite on-point.
Typically, I would only consume this local delicacy at the hawker centres, but I may consider having this again at Town Restaurant.
The mee pok (flat egg noodles) was cooked al dente and springy, evenly tossed in a sauce of vinegar and chilli.
All the elements worked together well, even the slices of pork liver that had that tender bite without the peculiar aftertaste.
While Town Restaurant is not the kind of buffet restaurant that displays endless colourful spreads and spreads of food to activate your salivary glands, I appreciate getting some quality dishes.
Great ambience, a decent spread at a fair price point.
