Marina Bay Sands
I am really not much of a buffet person but felt so compelled to praise the pastry chefs from The Rise. Dessert there is just so strong and the variety of food there is quite unique and definitely is a cut above most other buffets. I actually dug into the desserts after my appetisers – salads as they are just so inviting. The desserts there were all above average, nothing is too dry and interesting pastries like Portuguese egg tarts were also served too. It really is my first time seeing a huge bowl of egg tarts.
So soft and not dry at all. Didn’t have a chance to get this as it was all gone by the time I got to this. Should have taken the peach mochi first but it may be too filling actually to have it!The tart looks pretty doesn’t it but didn’t get it as I was too stuffed already.
And finally the star of the day I guess – the big tray of Po tart. I really have never seen this served in any buffet before and this really makes the rise stand out in my opinion. Was so excited when I see it and I think any Asian would.
I had a really enjoyable time at The Rise today. Didn’t take much photos of the mains as they are the standard dishes that you can get from any other buffet I felt. The strength of this whole buffet really lies in the dessert and I think that this buffet felt a little more HK than others as they serve unlimited char siew and egg tarts. Think the chef behind the char siew counter is from HK as he was speaking with a HK accented cantonese to his colleagues. I would really recommend this buffet if you are easily thrilled by desserts as I think it will not disappoint you. Spent a total of $80 per person after GST and service charge. Service is also very prompt as they fill your water quickly for you and clears your plate almost immediately before you go for your second or nth round.
Verdict: A good restaurant. (worth a visit)
