A hidden gem in the East

We were hunting around for food and we chanced upon this outlet.

The hotel basement carpark is pathetic with approx 30 lots so you may want to park on the URA lots outside the hotel.

The spread was disappointing at first glance but hold and behold, the dishes pack some surprises.

The laksa is above average seeing how Katong Laksa orginated in this part of east Singapore. The seafood porridge was acceptable, the satay beehoon was good.

So much for the live-cooking area, the cooked area of mainly Peranakan dishes bringing out the “古早” taste and memories of old granny cooking. I would say the buffet price of $42 per pax is a litte steep but factoring in the discount of 3-pay-1-free promo, it is acceptable.



The final item to commendate this outlet is the EXCELLENT service from the waiting staff. Plates are cleared and ice-water replenlished with tip-top attention for each customer. Recommend fellow HGW friends to give this outlet a try.

The signature dishes were not being served. i brought my parents there because the website shows mee siam .kueh pie tee and rojay. There was also no oysters. Even the peranakan signatures like buah kulah was not being served. 
The spread is really pathetic. I really feel apaologetic to my entire family for bringing them to this place

Traditional Peranakan Food That Lacks Authentic Flavour

Full Feast @ East Buffet Restaurant review here

Feast @ East Buffet Restaurant is a heritage buffet that celebrates the best of traditional Peranakan cuisine by serving up a mouthwatering spread that changes daily amid old-school, traditional settings. Feast @ East Buffet Restaurant used to have a much wider selection of international food available, but they have since narrowed their focus to Peranakan cuisine with a smattering of fresh seafood. Personally, I think it's a good move, because there are much better buffets with an international offering, but few that specialise in Peranakan cuisine.

The cooked food at Feast @ East Buffet Restaurant revolves mainly around traditional Peranakan dishes. There is a good variety of cooked food available for the buffet. However, the fast-paced demands of the buffet concept means the food uses a lot of mass-produced, commercialised ingredients and cooking methods, resulting in a lack of authentic taste. Feast @ East Buffet Restaurant also has a wide spread of traditional desserts, as well as bottles of traditional sweets and biscuits.

The restaurant projects a traditional Peranakan vibe, with table settings and staff uniforms reflecting the theme.
