International & Peranakan Cuisine

For more photos and reviews, please drop by my blog http://hazeldiary.com/?p=3940

Located at Swissotel Merchant Court, Ellenborough Market Cafe offers spread varieties of fresh japanese sashimi, local foods and also peranakan cuisine. It is a walking distance from Clark Quay MRT Station where you do not need to worry about the accessibility.
The interior cafe has a vintage and peranakan design that attracts my attention. The colonial design makes the whole cafe looks authentic feel. The marble table top with the wooden chairs makes the whole interior design completely fascinating.
The cafe also has the option dinning indoor or outdoor area.There are few food sections which includes the sashimi, cold seafoods, salads, peranakan desserts, cooked foods and also ‘live’ cooking sections. Japanese sashimi are sliced personally by the chef upon request to ensure the freshness of the sashimi. Hot cooked sections are available especially Singapore Chilli Crab with mantou. It is almost gone whenever i head to the section for my intake.
Cold seafoods sections are in demand too especially comes to buffet. The snowcrabs are well-received immediately when the chef re-stocked them. “Live” cooking sections are available where you can have the hot fried carrot cake cooked on the spot. Peranakan desserts are something that you shouldn’t miss out. I love the durian pengat that taste super awesome! I was addicted the moment I tried it. It is smooth and totally can taste the pure durian taste without getting your hands dirty.There are nyonya kuehs displayed at the sections as well. Do give it a try on the rare nyonya kuehs that you seldom get to have it elsewhere. Overall the dinning experience was pleasant. The staffs are quite attentive to customers’ needs. Plates are cleared once we are done and keep out table as spacious as possible. The staffs are polite and friendly to customers i would say. If I would to miss the foods here, it will be the crabs and durian pengat.

Firstly, for a $60 over buffet not to serve oysters is a 'crime'. Morever, the frozen baby lobsters are not fresh, the flesh being powdery. The baked crabs, beside being not fresh, Was so salty i had to spit it out! As for the rest of the food, they are mediocre at best. The variety of food is pathetic. Not going back.

Came in for a la carte which was admittedly not the best idea at a place better known for its buffet. But I've been here for that as well. But the far card is impotent here as it's always some special buffet which gives a lesser discount.

The crab buffet was unremarkable, there are much better places to go.

Ordered steak here which was poorly seasoned, fish and chips were bland too. 

The best was the service by a young waiter Andrew. Really took the initiative and made it quite enjoyable in the end. Thank you.
