Chicken Rice Festival Buffet at Town Restaurant, The Fullerton Hotel
From 11 to 24 November 2013, The Fullerton Hotel’s Town Restaurant is presenting a splendid CHICKEN RICE FESTIVAL BUFFET. Available for lunch and dinner, the restaurant is offering its signature Hainanese Chicken Rice, Ayam Penyet, Chicken Devil’s Curry, Chicken Nasi Briyani and Ayam Cincalok, reflecting the unique characteristics of the diverse local ethnic cuisines in Singapore.
Known as the national dish of Singapore, Town Restaurant’s Signature Hainanese Chicken Rice is prided as the best chicken rice in town. Using the freshest chicken, the chef poached the chicken in hot water for 50 minutes before soaking it in ice water for another 20 minutes. The chicken is succulent, and the poached skin is smooth and not too fatty. When ready, it is served with fragrant rice that is cooked with pandan and lemongrass, and a piquant chilli and ginger sauce.
Another of my favourite in this Chicken Rice Festival Buffet spread is the Ayam Cincalok in Peranakan Style. The spring chicken is braised for 2 hours with cincalok (preserved spicy shrimp paste) and accompied with fragrant steamed jasmine rice, pineapple achar and crispy prawn crackers.
Ayama Penyet (Crispy Fried Chicken), a traditional Indonesian dish, is accompanied with a spicy sambal sauce made of chilli, tomatoes, onion, garlic, belacan, assam and lime juice. I wished the chilli sauce would have a more spicy kick.
Chicken Devil’s Curry is an Eurasian dish made with fresh chilli, blue ginger, lime juice, candlenut and mustard seed, cooked with chicken and bacon bone that tastes distintively spicy, tangy and gratifying.
And not forgetting Chicken Nasi Briyani, a popular Indian and Malay dish, served with Saffron Basmatic rice, instensed spice flavoured chicken, crispy papadum and mango pickles.
Since it is a buffet, you definitely will be eating more than the 5 chicken rice dishes lah! The restaurant has a good variety ranging from seafood on ice, sashimi, sushi to hot dishes, other asian delights like bak kut teh, desserts, fondue, ice kachang etc.
