Arising from one friend’s privilege and another’s generosity, I was treated to a meal at the Edge.
Some call it the best international buffet in Singapore, so we were really looking forward to the experience. And I must say, it did not disappoint.
From the family-sized serve-ware (instead of large vats that somewhat resemble feeding troughs), to the lighting and spacing of tables, everything made for a very enjoyable buffet experience.
|I loved how they served small portions instead of huge vats!|
The variety was good, and the quality high. Which is much more than I can say for many hotel buffets. Of course that comes at a price, but when you consider that the quality doubles for less than double the price, it kind of makes sense to pay slightly more.
|Keropok galore – with my favourite belinjau!|
|Tom yam soup – my friend couldn’t stop raving about this and had two huge bowls of it.|
|Yummy sushi and sashimi with just the right plates.|
I must say that I was most impressed with the dessert section. Unlike the afterthought that most dessert sections in a buffet are, this one took up sizeable counter space, with delights of all kinds arrayed to tempt.
I must say that I even preferred this to The Line, which is usually touted as one of the best. Probably due to the spacious layout of the Edge, and the visually-pleasing way the food is presented.
The girls had a field day. Kids under six eat for free – simply wonderful for us!
My favourites were the lemon macarons, the liquored truffles, the durian penyat (fridged separately and served to you upon request), the handmade green tea chocolate, the soft pistacho sponge cake…
I also appreciated the fact that there were staff serving some of the cakes, chocolates and ice-cream, which meant that everything was kept looking nice and neat… less of a free-for-all (though you could ask for as much as you want), and thus much more civilised.
The girls had a great time, the dozen of us had good conversation, and got to know one another better even though we belong to
slightly rather different generations! I was doing well until I asked for my second Earl Grey – that totally did me in by further expanding what was in my tum! So much for washing down a good meal. Must remember not to repeat this mistake, awesome as the tea was.
