Media Tasting at Oscar’s
The current buffet scene at Oscar’s is unlike to pre-covid. It might be a blessing in disguise! This is like a sit down dinner where we place order and food is served right to our table.
We got really excited looking at the intensive menu. An array of food available across distinct culinary. Some of the highlights from The Ice Bar include oysters, snow crabs, sashimi and crab kueh pie tee. There are also local delights such as Oscar’s laksa, prawn noodle soup, Singapore chili crab, bak kut teh, beef rendang and Indian cuisines. The line-up of dessert includes D24 durian puff, creme brûlée, pandan kopi ‘o’ tiramisu, ice cream and more.
As usual, I would start my meal with a bowl of salad. My salad turned into a beautiful garden topped with bacon and quail egg and sprinkled with lots of cheese powder.
I have to admit their salmon sashimi is decently fresh but not the tuna and octopus. We have ordered another 5 slices of salmon each!
The seafood platter is brimming with oysters, snow crabs, sea prawns and mussels. You can’t help but to see most of the diners have ordered oysters and sea prawns. The snow crabs were quite salty and we could not shake the taste of salt from our mouth.
One of my favourites, Crab Kueh Pie Tee with Garlic Aioli. Real crab meat generously stuffed in crisp kueh pie tee cup.
If you’re a fan of eggplant, this creation of charred mashed eggplant mixed with toasted macademia nuts and chives pincho topped with romesco might be for you!
Moving towards a series of Oscar’s Signature dishes.
This bowl of laksa is creamier and slightly sweet but doesn’t quite hit the classic. I was telling my dining partner, something is missing. Later on, I’ve figured out why. Did you managed to guess from the picture?
Where is my chilli?
We both enjoyed this bowl of prawn noodles soup. Yellow noodles served with umami-rich broth with fresh prawn. This is definitely one of the better prawn noodles soup under buffet menu.
As featured Beef Bulgogi as well as Lobster Mac and Cheese. Tender pieces of caramelised beef topped with 63°C egg, nutty Furikake in Signature Sauce. As for the lobster mac and cheese, we were hoping if there’s more lobster meat.
Do not underestimate this piece of chicken wing. It is generously stuffed with prawn, coriander and Cajun spiced and filled almost 10% of our stomach!
Sweet and tangy Singapore Chili Crab served with deep fried mantou. The chilli crab gravy is slightly thin.
Another beautifully plated Roast Rib Eye with Rosemary Jus and Saffron Parmesan Creamy Polenta. Unfortunately, we were not a fan of well-done beef.
Fat and juicy steamed clams soaked in a bed of tasty garlic buttered white wine pot. We absolutely love dipping crisp Ciabatta into the pot. It’s so good and we had one each!
I knew I had to order D24 durian puffs the moment my eyes set on the desserts section. Definitely, not for sharing! Glad that the puffs are light and crisp!
We definitely give a thumb up for their speedy service with a friendly approach.
So amazed with the plated food and desserts served to our table. There are even photos featured in the online menu. The chefs at Oscar’s have turned the buffet dishes considerably more appetising and appear to be expensive. No worries, there is no extra charge for these.
