Buffet With Sustainable Seafood

Recently, Kitchen Table at W Hotel hosted Australian celebrity chef Peter Kuruvita. I was fortunate to dine over the weekend when he was in Singapore for the launch and see him in person.   I have been to Kitchen Table restaurant before and Kitchen Table has a good spread of local, western, Indian, seafood and dessert offerings. The restaurant has most of their food items laid out buffet style, alongside live stations where chefs prepare your food to order.   For this sustainable seafood campaign, Chef Kuruvita had some dishes prepared according to his recipes and these dishes were laid out together with the regular buffet items, in the different sections: Local, Western, Indian, Seafood and Dessert counters.   Chef Kuruvita’s dishes focuses on new renditions of flavourful seafood using fresh and sustainably sourced ingredients.   Some of the dishes that I liked were: - Ambul Thial: King fish with black paste over it. A little dry for my liking.   - Snapper Curry: This is a stand-out! The fish is soft and tasty. The curry is also good. It went well with the plain basmatic rice. Must try!   - Red Rice Fishcakes: Fish cake patty deep fried. Good taste and goes well with chutney.   - Crab with ginger sauce: The sauce is gingery in taste. It looks much like chilli crab, except that its more watery. This was very popular and once the serving station is topped up, its cleared out by the diners. Try it!   - Wattarlarain Dessert: Sri Lankan Crème brulee. Its thick and after torching the top of the dessert, its fopped with some syrup. Taste-wise, it reminds me of coffee crème brulee.   The standouts from the usual buffet were: - Tandoori Chicken and Fish: These were freshly grilled in the tandoor. Its nicely marinated. I much prefer the chicken than the fish. The chef recommended me to eat this with the mango chutney. Its delicious. Recommended!   - Freshly shucked oysters: These were very fresh. Instead of eating it with vinegrette/ tabasco and lemon, I added the soy sauce for the sashimi. It gave the oysters a nice flavour.  - Cheese and Desserts: There were a wide range of cheese and desserts. Cheese and dessert lovers will be happy.   I loved the ambience of the restaurant and after your meal, you can take a stroll outside to enjoy the view of the marina and relax.   Recommended!

Given the price for weekend dinner ($85 per pax++) buffet dinner was worst value for money, period. Not only was the selection meager and weak (read small and not well balanced); most dishes on offer was tasteless and not served hot. For the price you'd expect more than boxed pasta or the fishcake served with the local noodle of your choice. When asked how are the various dishes were to be served, i was repeatly met with blank stares.
 The shashmi was borderline 'going bad' and the desserts are a hodgepodge of misses.
I had difficulty plating enough nuturious food to feed my 2 year old and ended feeding him crackers, parpadams and mantou as subsitute for a proper meal in a what is supposed to be a five star hotel.
Surely an unforgettable dinner experience made worst by the uber pricing which makes it hard to digest from such a high end establishment. "Does anyone taste the dishes before being served?" i was wondering the whole night, obviously not was the refrain.  As a Starwood member, this is the worst experience dinning or staying with the Group. Utter Fail is all i can say.

Sumptuous Seafood Spread by the Sea

I am back at the beguiling W Hotel @ Sentosa Cove, this time headed for The Kitchen Table for Seafood From the Heart buffet featuring Celebrity Chef Peter Kuruvita. This is available every Friday, Saturday and Sunday from 6.00pm to 11.30pm at SGD$85.00++ per adult.  

If one sits by the window, they would get the killer views of the waters, yachts and some pretty buildings looming ahead. However, do not overlook the beauty of the restaurant's interior decor itself - simple but elegant and clean-cut, with overturned tables and glasses suspending from the ceilings!

I started with some seafood as usual - some very juicy and delicious Oysters made my day, as well as thick, springy pieces of Sashimi!

Following that was another must-try, because we had been tempted during the live demo earlier - food from the Indian station. I had a little basmatic rice, my favorite Papadum chip, some Curry Snapper and Tandoori Chicken. The Curry Snapper was aromatic and flavourful without being too spicy. The Tandoori Chicken was utterly tender and smooth, much to my surprise; and boosting of a distinctive smokey hint to its sweet flavour.

Finally, time to respond in kind to the colourful desserts that kept beckoning to me throughout the evening. There were many different flavours of Maracons, soft but not cloyingly sweet or creamy. There were also Chocolate Panna Cotta (tasted too milky it was more like Milo unfortunately), Lychee Pudding, a pretty little Cupcake etc.
