these are photos from a recent gathering – I’m lucky to have friends who like each other enough to meet regularly to eat – and I’ve always thought the best thing about becoming an adult – age, not maturity – was that you could start entertaining and throwing food parties. potlucks and cheese nights and barbecues and the like – and so, really, this was the culmination of a childhood ambition and a more recently-inspired cheese craving.
it turned out great – we overdosed on nutella and cheese, glugged down a fair bit of tea and wine. I learnt some new things while obsessively researching about other people’s cheese parties – and I’m leaving them here for you (and myself!).
very good, concise buffet spread at the new parkroyal on pickering. so I’ve told you a bit about this place and how pretty it is in my last post – and now let’s talk about the eatin’.
I feel the need to insert a caveat here – I enjoyed this spread because it had precisely the sort of thing I like to eat, but if you come here expecting the massive sort of round-the-world line-up the shangri-la provides, then you might be a tad disappointed. I don’t personally go in for large spreads – I once filled up on popiah (a cheap local dish of braised radish) at another buffet to the desperation of my partner – and I appreciate quality over quantity.
for part 2 of this post (with photos of the food!) – here’s it!
really good international-asianish buffet at the spanking-new parkroyal at pickering. it’s managed to bring some modern cool to this area – which despite growing into a hipster enclave, has kept to kitschy old-means-retro, rather than a modern aesthetique. this post also marks my first post back in singapore, and boy am I excited about that – I have an incredible backlog of posts and so ready to share.
so, the short: one of the better buffets, a small but good spread (might be subjective), and a lovely, gorgeous space with great service and no issues you’d associate with new establishments. this first post on the place is more space-descriptive – the eating comes in the next onehere!
