Triple Three at Mandarin Orchard has in the past served buffets of different themes. This time, they have brought Hokkaido to the buffet table. Jumping onto the Seafood buffet bandwagon, Triple Three has brought in fresh, air-flown seafood. I cannot begin to explain how fresh the seafood are. Nothing tastes worst than raw, fishy seafood that aren’t fresh.
I attended the buffet on the opening night of the buffet spread and we were treated to a surprise – a Live demonstration of preparing a Yellow Fin Tuna. Triple Three impressed by going to the extent of flying in a whole Yellow Fin Tuna.
It was definitely an eye-opener for me because for one, I have never seen a whole Yellow Fin Tuna up close before. And, to have a Japanese chef prepare and slice up the fish before me was definitely delightful.
As part of Harris‘ and my “Hyatt Series”, we recently paid a visit to Oasis, Hyatt Hotel’s poolside restaurant. While this visit was a invited session by Hyatt Hotel, both of us had never planned for it to be that way. When we made a reservation via e-mail, a member of Hyatt’s marketing group read about our prior visit to mezza9 and Pete’s Place and kindly offered to invite us for a tasting session.
If I were to describe the ambience at Oasis, I would say that it would be an excellent hangout with friends or just a romantic night out for 2 (Especially if both of you simply adore bbq seafood and meats.)
Located on the 5th floor of 313@Somerset, Food Republic boasts 1,100 seats with 30,000 sq ft, making it the largest Food Republic atrium along Orchard Road. Featuring 26 food and drink stalls of which 5 are mini restaurants, it aims to gather some of the best hawkers in Singapore under one roof.
To many, mezza9 comes across as a decent restaurant in a five star hotel along Orchard Road, serving average cuisine catering to the upmarket tourist crowd. So, I hopped down to mezza9 to either dispel or confirm the myth.
