Oscar's at Conrad Centennial Hotel

Local favorites - Laksa, Noodles, Bah Kut Teh etc
When the husband mentioned about celebrating our anniversary at Oscar's, I wasn't very sure about going. I really didn't have an idea about the place! Maybe because we're not familiar with the Conrad Hotel. When I looked up reviews about the buffet, I was sold right away! Average of 4 stars on!

International Entrees

Asian Entree

Desserts station
Salad bar

Fruits... of the sea

I was looking forward to having my salad mixed inside the big bowl of Parmesan wheel but unfortunately the server informed me it was only for Caesar's salad, not for any other types or if you make your own. :( But he was gracious enough to give me a LOT of Parmesan shavings. Heaven!

Foccacia and some sort of salad

Below is my first plate of entrees. Of course I won't tell you how many plates I used. My little girl loved the sausages (as always) and chomped on the cheeses like there was no tomorrow.  The pasta was just okay, didn't really love the lamb carving. Roasted potatoes were yum, and I liked veal dish, too. But it was really sinful because it was bathed in creamy sauce! Hello, cholesterol!

Sausages, pasta, and veal.  Sorry to all the mommy cows out there.  

The husband's nth plate is shown on the photo below. According to him, the salmon something and shrimp were the ones which stood out. The rest was just average.
Shrimp, salmon, mussels, and lobster.
As always, dessert is the highlight of my meal. :) The cream puff was pretty with edible gold on top and the custard on a chocolate cup was also adorned with a coffee bean with a brush of the same gold paint.  I also tried the pudding, it was nice but not really a showstopper. 

My favorite part, dessert!

I love that they have great selections for ice cream. Just couldn't remember everything though, but for sure the flavors weren't the usual chocolate, vanilla and strawberry. I forgot the name but it was sweet and tangy, it was really good paired with the warm and crisp waffle.
Yummy ice cream waffle!
The fresh fruits were nice, but the highlight for me were the chocolates. They were just awesome. From lemon, berries, dark and even with rose flavored ones.
The mandatory tropical fruits
Below is the husband's dessert plate. I totally ignored the cake, thinking it was just another cream cheese cake blah. But when the husband told me it was their signature cake, I went back to the dessert table to get one but it was gone too soon! :( 
A slice of their signature choco-crunch cake, a selection of chocolates, and fruits

If only I can go back everytime there's a special occasion, I would! We also checked out there high tea buffet, it was about S$43++. I guess there's another reason to go back to Oscar's! :))

  6. This is a great buffet spread! Nakakalula. I honestly don't enjoy eating in a buffet kasi di ko alam kung ano uunahin ko. But I always try those dishes that I'm not so familiar with and ung mga mahal ang ingredients, lol para sulit :)

    I love laksa! And btw, was that dinuguan (in the Asian entree)?

    Happy anniversary to you and your hubby! God bless :)

    1. Hi Farida, it's not dinuguan, as far as I remembered. No Filipino food, actually, mostly local Chinese and Malay dishes were there. :)
