The Square Restaurant @ Novotel Singapore Clarke Quay

For the uninitiated, if you know where's Liang Court, then you can find Novotel Clarke Quay. The Square Restaurant is at Level 7 of Novotel.

Was recently invited to try its Christmas Buffet. Dinner buffet is currently priced at $58++ per adult. This price is not valid on eve and on Public Holidays.

 The place has a nice ambiance, and Christmas'sy feel to it. Food is a mix of International and local fares.

Buffet with oysters? I like, especially those plump ones. Prawns and oysters. Double the happiness.

For sashimi, we spied tuna.

to start: salad, chuka idako, tuna sashimi, seafood salad and smoked chicken salad

 The Square offers roasted lamb and turkey at its carving stations. These ought to satisfy the carnivors in us.

Cooked food has items such as carbs (fried rice, char kway teow), vegetables and meats (beef, fish and chicken). There was soup kambing (mutton soup) as well, but did not try.

 If prawns is not enough to satisfy the seafood cravings, how about some crabs?

The Indonesian chili crab was spicy but the sauce was oh-so-shiok! The only thing missing, was the deep fried man-tous.

There is a live cooking station as well, and one could request for mee-siam, aglio-olio or risotto.

Cheese section was interesting. The Irish Porter Cheddar looked as though it has nuts in it, but it doesn't. The texture was semi-soft, like a jelly or a slightly drier and not so soft konyaku. Saint Morgon seemed to be the most pungent of the lot. The rest were pretty mild, and nice to be eaten with the sweet relishes and crackers.

Desserts are aplenty here. Cakes, ice-creams, puddings etc. For festive season, there are even log cake, and gingerbread men cookies. Too stuffed to try all!

The chocolate log cake was good. Moist and sweet.

ice-cream

If your stomach has only a single slot left for desserts, then do try the durian pengat before you leave. Unless, you have a major dislike of durians.

Durian pengat was definitely not a looker, but it sure was darn tasty! Just the right amount of pulp too. Thumbs up for this.

Special thanks to Spencer and Fara, for your hospitality and also to HGW for the invite.

Oh, Le Bar Rouge beside The Square, has a 1-for-1 offers on house-pour and Tiger draught beer daily from 6pm tp 8pm, so do check it out.

Eat, Drink and be Merry!
