Need recommendations for a good seafood buffet this weekend(Aug6-8)

by uneev

Hi all,

I know this is kind of short notice. My co-worker and I are looking for a good seafood buffet that we can hit up this weekend. Did some research online and they are so many that come up. We would like a mix of international and local fare (i definitely want to do chilli crab again). If alcohol is included that would be great too, but it is not important.
Any recommendations would be much appreciated. Thanks

Joy

Hi,

Head for Clarke Quay, and you'll be spoilt for choice with all the waterside eateries.

Pop into one that takes your fancy!

Good luck, and enjoy SG :-)

The Swisshotel at Clarke Quay has the most amazing seafood banquet........it had very delicious Chili Crab when we were there. There is a good variety of cuisine too.
As previous reply stated- Clarke Quay is chokka with good restuarants, all on the riverfront.Browse the different menus- its not necessary to pre- book.

I agree with both of the above. The SwissHotel seafood buffet I can personally recommend. Went there on a recommendation. But there are so many in the Quay. You really cannot go wrong there as far as restaurants go. Enjoy....d:o)

Travel Tips for Singapore

Changi Airport

by trisanna

Singapore Changi airport is one of the best airports in the world. Checking in is quite smooth. The two terminals look like small malls. You will be spoiled for choice. The price on liquor and cigarettes are quite good.

There are many restaurants and food outlets in both terminals, everything from sushi to masala dosai (very expensive masala dosai at $8).

Anyway,it all comes down to what terminal you are flying in/out of. Terminal 1 is the older of the two and there are less shops/restaurants there. Terminal 2 is very nice. This is the terminal for Singapore airlines. There is a koi pond, surrounded by orchids and also a cactus garden. Lots more shops and restaurants.

If you are flying out of terminal 1-don't despair. If you have time you can either walk to the other terminal-by a long bridge or take the tiny automated train. They just completed a large renovation project and Terminal 1 is looking a lot better.

Currently, they are building a new terminal-which will be for discount airlines. This is supposed to open in the next few years.

Coming into Singapore is quite easy. Customs is quite efficient. Even though it can be lax-be careful on what you bring into Singapore. Bringing drugs into Singapore is a capitol offense-no joke! Every few weeks there are articles in the Straits Times about people, who are on trial for bringing drugs into the country.

Any pets/animals have to be quarantined here for 30 days. So leave Fido at home.

Spices in Little India

by phil_uk_net

Words and pictures are not suitable for this memory - we need Smellovision!
Walking around Little India one day, I smelt the most fragrant aroma and it stopped me in my tracks.
I looked inside the small shop and saw a number of large grinding machines where fresh spices were being ground, ready to be added to Indian dishes. The smell was heavenly.

Deepavali Celebrations

by Hewer

Deepavali is a Hindu festival commemorating the victory of the Hindu God Lord Krishna over the evil demon Narakasura.

Deepavali is a big event in Singapore, and celebrations centre around Little India. The date of Deepavali varies slightly from year to year but the celebrations take place over a whole month in Singapore. There are special markets, street performances and several processions and ceremonies. There is even a special Deepavali Tour in an open top bus.

It`s definitely rewarding to experience some of the festivities if you are in Singapore at the right time. Deepavali takes place in the later months of the year - in 2004 the celebrations run from October 15 until November 14.

Cotton Clothes

by IrishFem

A small backpack to keep your camera, purse and other small items in, l found carrying anything around at all will add to your discomfort as it is so hot there. Even with a backpack the humidity makes you sweat and feel uncomfortable. Carry water with you at all times, a face cloth and deodorant to freshen up. Cotton clothing, it gets really warm and humid it's best to wear shorts and tee-shirts. You might need a cardigan when you enter any of the large department stores / hotels as it gets cold when the air con is on. Some major hotels will not permit you entry with certain types of clothes so be sure to take something suitable like a summer dress and for men cotton trousers and a shirt. All readily available. Your camera or if your really flush buy a new one. A umbrella comes in handy for those tropical downpours.

When in Singapore, eat as the Locals do!

by volarevolare

Eating in Hawker Centres or Coffeeshops in the Housing Estates in Singapore are a great way to tantalise your senses -- they often offer a wide array of cheap and good food.

One way to find yourself in a Housing Estate is to take the MRT train to any station that is out of the Central part of Singapore -- which is also where the main business and commercial centres are. Take the MRT train to places like Toa Payoh or Ang Mo Kio MRT Station on the North-South line and walk around a bit, ask the locals where the nearest coffee shop or hawker centre is. There's also Food Courts in shopping centres that sell a wide array of foods, though they may be priced slightly higher than a Housing Estate hawker centre or coffeeshop.

Note: I usually survey how crowded a stall is -- is there a queue? Yes,it's probably worth a try. I also look around and see what the people are eating, and if there are more eating from the same stall (as evidenced by the same plates/ bowls used), it's also probably worth a try ;)

Anyway, enjoy your gastronomic adventure!
