Local-licious Long Lunch at Atrium Restaurant, Holiday Inn Singapore Atrium
One of the best ways to experience Singapore’s unique identity is through food. Much of our local cuisine is made with a fusion of different spices and ingredients from different cultures. At Atrium Restaurant in Holiday Inn Singapore Atrium, dine to your heart’s content at their very own Local-licious Long Lunch, lasting a whopping 4 hours! Lining the buffet is a wide range of Singaporean favourites such as Bak Kut Teh (Pork Rib Soup), Oyster Omelette, a D-I-Y Kueh Pie Tee station and even Ice Kacang for dessert!
Used to be known as Melting Pot Café, the cafe has underwent a revamp and it is now known as Atrium Restaurant. I like the change because the restaurant is brighter and more modern. The newly restaurant is led by Executive Chef Chua Yew Hock, who has 30 years of culinary experience working in hotels in Melbourne, Canberra, Cambodia, Myanmar, New Zealand, and the Philippines.
As with all buffet, it is almost a must to start off with a selection of fresh seafood. Any guest will be impressed by the fresh prawns and mussels ready to be devoured. There are also fresh sashimi and sushi which are popular among the locals.
I am quite particular about chicken rice and I think Atrium Restaurant’s version is decent. Look at the appetizing roast chicken! Their rice was lightly flavoured and I like their chilli sauce and ginger dip.
Besides doing your own rojak (which I enjoy), there are live stations such as the satay bee hoon where you can get a pipping hot bowl of noodles. The bak kut teh has a spicy kick and kueh pie tee are crunchy shell filled with juicy stewed turnip that have soaked enough of its rich stock to be fully infused with flavour.
One of my favourites is the Curry Laksa with fresh shrimps, fish cake slices, boiled egg and taupok in milky gravy. It is made with a rich, slightly sweet and strongly spiced coconut gravy (lemak). It packs a punch with its awesome flavour and spiciness.
End off the hearty spread with their ice kachang to beat the sweltering heat. There are also cakes and pastries which will satisfy your sweet tooth. It’s good to know that the little ones are also taken care of at their personalized Kids Buffet counter. Atrium Restaurant’s Local-licious Long Lunch is priced at SGD38++ per adult. It is available from 12pm to 4.30pm, every Saturday and Sunday.
