Mark you calendar food lovers, from 27 April to 16 May 2015, Oscar's will bring you gastronomic journey to around Italy. Be prepared to be bring your palate to travel around Italy with flavours by Executive Chef Michele Mingozzi. This born and bred Italian who discovered his passion for cooking from the kitchen of his beloved grandmother and mother in Ferrara, Northern Italy.

We started our dinner with antipasto (appetizers) which include assorted salami and parma hams with Pinzini (from Ferrara region) and Mozzarella / Burrata Bar (from Campania region). Pinzini is a pillow shaped fried pizza dough. It is light and fluffy, which goes well with the fresh and creamy burrata and parma ham. For the firmer cheese such as mozzarella and cheery mozzarella, I had mine with the fresh cherry tomatoes and deep fried stuffed olives also known as Olives all'Ascolana (Marche region).

In the typical Italian culture, we continue with the pasta. My pick of the night is Prawns ravioli. The prawns fillings between the pasta sheets are fresh and springy. It is well complemented by the cherry tomato sauce. While the dish is Italian, I can't help to fantasize that this dish is of equivalent to our local prawn dumplings.

Now for the proteins. Braised Veal Tongue (Ferrara region) are to die for. One of Chef Michele's comfort food where it looks like it was simply boiled for long hours with simple seasoning, however it just melts on your mouth. Best of all, no gamey smell in it. For beef tongue lovers, you will like this even more. This dish is serve with Italian version of chimichurri sauce, which was refreshing and good to balance out this heavy dish. I had 3 big slices and I have to stopped myself in anticipation for next dishes to come. Kudos to the Chef.

Come to desserts, we are treated to Chiacchiere (Emilia Romagna region). According to Chef Michele, Chiacchiere is one of the most common food eaten during carnival in Italy. Also known as Angel Wings, it made from dough, deep fried and sprinkled with powdered sugar. It is crispy outer part, yet moist and slightly chewy inside. With powdered sugar, it is just hard to resist. It reminds me of our Chinese twisted pretzel called ma hua (麻花).

Overall, A Taste of Italy edition in Oscar's definitely worth to try. From what I tasted, some of the dishes are unique and not commonly found in Singapore. Combining this with the renowned buffet spread in Oscar's, it is definitely worth your trip here. A taste of Italy will run from 27 April to 16 May 2015 for lunch and dinner in Oscar's. Please note A Taste of Italy dishes available on top of the Oscar's ever popular seafood, cooked food and desserts offerings. Salute and Buon Appetito!!

Thank you to Chef Michele Mingozzi, Oscar's F&B Team and Conrad Centennial Singapore for the wonderful evening.

Dropping standards

I had a good experience here some years ago but am disappointed that the standards have dropped so drastically. I visited on a weekday for a buffet dinner. The buffet is supposed to be until 10pm, but some items on the buffet were just never refilled. I understand that on a weekday, the number of diners might not warrant constant refilling of the food items. However, there were some items (e.g. mozzarella bar, parma ham) which were clearly popular and which had finished by the time I arrived at 8pm. Notwithstanding that there were two more hours for the buffet, and that I had requested multiple times specifically for the burrata on the mozzarella bar to be refilled so that I could at least eat that (which I was paying for), the items were never actually refilled! In fact, the waitress had assured me that the chef was already preparing the burrata to be served. I had to keep checking but nothing was there, even when we left at nearly 10pm. 

To say the least, it was a very disappointing dining experience.

Lunch crowd isn't alot of people but looking at the price you know why.
But what you pay is what you get.
I paid about $60 per person and we really enjoy it.
Fish is fresh and seafood got 2 different kinds of crab,prawns,mussels,oyster fish maw soup and others.
This kind of buffet is not what you find in those below $40 buffet.
It's worth it.
As for service, GOOD.
You only live once,must give it a try.
