equinox used to be my favourite buffet destination.
i like the semi buffet arrangement, where the main course is a fine dining ala carte order. especially when i hardly take any main course at buffets as they are the food warmers variety & invariably not great.
one ninety of course more ex c/w with equinox S$59pax with 50% feed @ raffles discounts.
my one ninety post was 3 yrs ago & no post on equinox, so have not been to equinox like 4 yrs?? basically avoid buffet la…if i can…
the other advantage of equinox is of course it’s great vantage, superb view! 🙂
of MBS, padang, raffles place etc…
on this day i went with my sis for the semi buffet lunch on 15.7.2016. ^^
amex is varying the feed @ raffles discounts so will be 35% instead of 50% discount come 1.8.2016. so i thought i come with my sis 1 last time before the change in discount kicks in.
many people thinking that as well?
well after 4 yrs absence from this place, it’s like 面目全非. buffet spread halved??
the other side which used to host the cooked small plate dishes & cheese board are now tables & chairs.
there’s the usual sushi.
ok average stuff. i didn’t take much before not taking much now, just the unagi & one maki.
same sashimi. i just take the belly.
oysters were quite nice, fresh & sweet.
my sis loved the crabs. i took a few. she took many more! 🙂
they had the caviar & tobiko. din have these before.
i piled some caviar on the unagi.
& some tobiko on the maki.
the cold crab not too bad la…
some how the mains also did not feel as good as before. psychological?
barramundi was ok i supposed, but i though it was a lot better previously…
belly pork & pumpkin mash passable also.
not particularly impressive taste wise. texture ok did not impress either.
there were some fruits. run of the mill & not sweet, so just took watermelon. 🙂
tried some cakes.
also the soft-serve ice cream, pretty good, not too sweet.
cakes also not too sweet. quite nice actually.
took some apricots, dates. sis took some fig also which i tried.
& cappuccino & tea part of the buffet.
at 50% discounts lunch was S$29.50pax. not really bad but quite poor c/w before.
for this mediocre food, i think even the square & ellenborough market cafe are better so for me no point coming back even at 50% discount so forget about 30% discount from 1.8.2016.
