    Beach Road Kitchen

[Updated on Aug 8] Dining in Singapore would not be complete without a salute to that time-honored overeating tradition—the hotel buffet. Enduring stalwarts and decadent Champagne brunches aside, we’re pleased to see how many places are giving due attention to Asian, Singaporean and Peranakan highlights these days. Here are some of our picks.

Ash & Elm

For a Sunday Champagne brunch buffet that still somewhat resembles breakfast, Ash & Elm offers a lineup that uses quintessentially breakfast items like cornflakes, bacon and eggs in its dishes. What makes this buffet stand out is that you can order their signature dishes a la minute too. Oh, and their roving cocktail cart also makes for an entertaining diversion. 1/F InterContinental Singapore, 80 Middle Rd.

Basilico

Try not to fill up at the salame, tomato and mozzarella bars, and save room for the pizzas, pastas and meat carving stations. The buffet lunch happens every weekend alongside prosecco and Champagne extravaganzas too. 2/F The Regent Singapore, 1 Cuscaden Rd.

Beach Road Kitchen

The relatively new JW Marriott Singapore South Beach's flagship restaurant has both lunch and dinner buffet spreads that will have you spoilt for choice with live grill stations, seafood rooms and even its own pizza oven. But if you're like us, the boozy Sunday brunch buffet is the one to go to. 1/F South Beach Avenue, 30 Beach Rd.

Carousel

It’s hard to believe that such an extensive buffet is halal-certified. Dig in and load up on their Japanese, Mediterranean, Indian and Asian selections, not to mention the enormous fresh seafood display. Royal Plaza on Scotts, 25 Scotts Rd.

Colony

The site of the old Greenhouse does a dazzling seven-kitchen spread that also comes with a cocktail cart. The regular lunch buffet happens Mon-Sat, and the dinner happens every day. Splurge on the vintage Champagne brunch on Sundays. 3/F The Ritz-Carlton, Millenia SIngapore, 7 Raffles Ave.

Edge

Don’t miss the crayfish thermidor and the Peranakan staples here. They also do themed buffets, like the seafood-leaning Hooked@Edge on Wednesdays and Thursdays, and the lavish Veuve Cliquot brunch on Sundays. 3/F Pan Pacific SIngapore, 7 Raffles Blvd.

Flavours at Zhongshan Park

Specializing in a “hawkerlicious” buffet, Flavours serves a rotation of stuff like Hokkien mee and black pepper crab, along with laksa and lok lok stations and local desserts. On weekends, there’s also seafood on ice and Asian burgers. Ramada Singapore at Zhongshan Park, 16 Ah Hood Rd.

J65

Daily themed buffet dinners keep things fresh and is perhaps why you'll find a crowd here even on weekdays, especially on Wednesdays and Thursdays when it's lobster nights. You'll find your plate overflowing with deshelled crustaceans in no time. A live cooking station and DIY rojak bowl makes things fun and lively too. 1/F Hotel Jen Tanglin Singapore, 1A Cuscaden Rd.

Lime

Nothing like a weekday lunch at this sun-drenched spot. With three open kitchens and a big focus on Asian cooking, the buffet’s highlights are the Indian and Peranakan dishes. The Sunday brunch comes with Champagne, a chocolate fountain and a sangria cart. 1/F Parkroyal on Pickering, 3 Upper Pickering St.

Rise

Newly revamped Rise not only boasts one of the most varieties in a buffet spread, but also top quality. Herbs from their own edible garden can be found used in certain dishes, which is a nice touch. Their Monday balik kampung nights featuring Malay cuisine and their Satuday Singaporean favourites night are highly recommended. 1/F Marina Bay Sands, 10 Bayfront Ave.

The Line

An enduring legend with a whopping 16 theater kitchens, they whip up Japanese, Chinese, Western and Indian dishes, along with fresh seafood and dessert. On Tuesday and Thursday nights, you can try the seafood-themed Marine Harvest, and the Champagne brunch on Sundays. Lower Lobby, Tower Wing, Shangri-La Hotel, 22 Orange Grove Rd.

One-Ninety

This swanky option is great for when you want a hotel spread, but also want a cozy vibe. The market fresh semi-buffet changes often, but is a mix of Italian and Asian. Top up and get an entrée to go with the buffet—choose from 20 options! Four Seasons Hotel, 190 Orchard Blvd.
