>~< Eat till the last minute~

International cruisines are serve for the lunch buffet~ [Comes with free flow of tea and coffee]   The Curry Paneer Cheese is a must try; can be paired perfectly with rice, naan[freshly made right beside you] and crackers Aglio olio pasta is kind of a surprise, when the pasta itself was chewy instead of the soft texture that grabs up the oil.   DO leave some space for the warm chocolate cakes~

Where's the consistency? Shangri-La Rasa Sentosa?

I have just came back home from having the good ole days buffet at Silver Shell Cafe and I felt compelled to write something though it's already 2 A.M

First the bouquets

1) Chili Crab is fresh and I like the chili sauce that went with it, but it gradually got too sweet as I ate more. I think there's too much sugar added? But Mantou is now added, which is good.

2) I love the inclusion of Alaskan King Crab legs and fresh mussels and scallops.

3) The cultural performance by the bhangra dancers were the best. I am amazed that they didn't hit an occupied table that was very close to the performance area, but I wouldn't like to be in their position because the performer's feet were practically flying just above their food. -__-

Then the complaints

1) Where's the consistency? I always find it highly misleading when you invite food bloggers to your food tasting then afterwards, under deliver with MISSING items. Yes.. Where's the Gong Gong, the flower crab, and bamboo clams, they are missing from the seafood spread!

2) Also no Kua Pie Tee, and no Tao Sua. And also no Bandung!

There are also no keropok given to me as a door gift. And the price is the same throughout every Thursday in August, so I don't understand why certain food items are mysteriously missing from the spread.

So please if you really want customers to come back especially all the way to Sentosa, put back ALL the missing items, that you seem so readily to give to the food bloggers for free.

Please note I will be back again in September, I heard from the radio that you have extended the good ole days buffet till September. And I am sufficiently satisfied to want to bring my friend to try it.

But please Shangri-La, please don't disappoint me again on my repeat visit? Don't give me excuses that it's the suppliers fault. If I can find bamboo clams and lobster at the LINE. I should find those missing seafood items at Silver Shell when they cost even less.

Good Ol' Days Buffet on every Thursday

For photos, visit http://www.sgfoodonfoot.com

I am back at Silver Shell Cafe Shangri-La's Rasa Sentosa Resort after I reviewed their Meet the Meat Buffet last month. Now Silver Shell Cafe presents Good Ol' Days Buffet on every Thursday in August/September from 6pm to 10pm. The buffet showcases a combination of good old favourite hawker fare in a buffet spread, accompanied with games of yesteryear and a cultural performance for guests to experience Singapore in the olden days.

Every Thursday the restaurant is given a touch of nostalgia. Walking into the restaurant, it felt like walking into a museum. Keropok is also given out as door gift.

Mentioned in my previous review on Silver Shell Cafe, the restaurant does not look after the adult only. Being family oriented, kids can enjoy the toys and game stations at the restaurant while the adult indulges in the buffet spread.

Children these days are normally glued to the computer, iPad or smart phone. Little will they know of the games we used to play in our childhood. It would be a good education for the kids as well as memories for the adults.

If you are thirsty after all the games, check out the typical drink stalls one can find at a typical hawker centre.

In additional to the usual international buffet spread, the Good Ol' Days buffet pays homage to Singapore as a melting pot of cuisines, cultures and backgrounds.

Sample the traditional recipes of Malay and Indian influences infused with aromatic spices. My favourite was the Roti Prata (Indian flat bread) and Curry Chicken.

Fish Otah and Satay are my all time favourite BBQ food. Satay is quite common on buffet spread but I am delighted to find Fish Otah, fish paste with spices and coconut milk.

For the noodles lover, Silver Shell Cafe offers quite a variety of the local noodle fare. At the Good Ol' Days buffet one can find noodle dish such as Laksa, Lor Mee and Mee Rebus.

Good Ol' Days buffet also brings together delectable favourite local hawker food such as Black & White Carrot Cake, Fried Oyster and Fried Hokkien Mee.

For snacks and desserts, a great spread of local delights are available for the sweet tooth. One can have a taste of the different cultural cuisines in Singapore such as Kueh Pie Tee, Tao Suan, Kachang Puteh, Kueh Lapis and Assorted Nonya Kueh.

If you need a boost in vitamin C, a wide selection of tropical fruits to get the doctor away.

The Good O1' Days buffet is priced at $58++ per adult and $25++ per child from 6 to 12 years old. Comes with a wide spread of popular hawker fares on top of the normal international spread. It felt like paying a price for 2 buffets. On top of that, there are various childhood games booth and cultural performances enlivening the evening.

"heritage" theme buffet - i now think thrice before going again

Silver Shell Cafe has a Heritage Theme buffet every Thursday. I was there on 16 Aug.

Every Thurs, dancers perform Chinese, Malay and Indian dances, very entertaining, indian dance had stunts !!

In my opinion, the food quality and standard of cooking is only Average.

At the buffet, there were sushi, cold seafood and some local/chinese/thai salad. Most of the salads remain untouched, i noticed at the end of the night.

The live cooking station had 3 cooks , whom i think are not yet "Chef" standard. Each was cooking his own dish; fried hokkein mee, carrot cake and orh luak. The first was pretty good, the carrot cake was nothing like us singaporeans are used to and the orh luak did not have sour chili sauce to go with, so I asked for it, the cook told me to settle for sambal chilli meant for the fried hokkein mee. And this hotel is part of the Shangri-La group !!

There is also a corner with Lor Mee and Laksa , with a screen separating the cooks from the guests. I was there before 7pm, the buffe had started at 630pm and this glass screen was so dirty, i think they didnt clean it since lunch !!

Soup of the day was Bak Ku Teh, very potent, very thick, very good! The chunks of meat were tender and You Tiao provided.

That night, they had Chilli Crab too but no mantou, french loaf or buns to go with the gravy.

There is an indian stall, my family took some prata but later realised they seem to be instant prata - all of the same size and shape. We didnt polish them all. That said, the Chicken Curry was thick, pretty good but alas no decent prata to go with. Or perhaps, the curry was meant to be eaten with Briyani rice? I am not sure.

Desserts Yuck big time !

Tau Suan was a pale yellow, no sugar added! Why didnt they have some quality control ??!!
