Asian Market Cafe @ Fairmont Singapore is one of the 14 restaurants available at the Fairmont Hotel. This Asian Market Cafe buffet spread offers pan-Asian Halal local fare menu for both dinner and lunch to diners. It is an alternative to the buffet at Cafe Swiss that offers an European menu. The lunch buffet was surprisingly amazing. In short, it was far better than I expected since I have more unpleasant experience in buffet than the better one.
I kind of remember the space was previously occupied by the hotel Chinese restaurant. Asian Market Cafe didn’t have a high ceiling like most buffet restaurant of hotel hence, I find it some what cram.
At all buffet, it is common to spot the poached seafood. At the minimum, prawns are always available. Likewise at the Lunch Buffet at Asian Market Cafe @ Fairmont Singapore. There are mussels and scallops too.
Other crowd favourite at buffet are the Sushi and Salmon Sashimi, both offered as part of the buffet spread.
If you need some Salad, a good variety of vegetables and adds-on are found at the Salad station.
Indian food with a handful of curry choices, bread and rice were part of the spread. Among the items here, the must try are the Biryani and the Mutton curry. I would avoid the Nan and Roti.
Over to the Local Spread, Tau Pok, Laksa, Chicken Rice are the offering. I quite like the Laksa.
One of the hot favourite was the Black Pepper Crab. Though I avoided as I find it too messy for lunch.
Other hot food included the Steamed Garoupa, Spring Roll, seasonal stir-fried vegetables and rice & noodles choices.
Medley of cakes and pastries were laid at a corner tempting the diners’ senses.
Iced Dessert, both the western and local style were available. Either have the Ice Kacang or the Ice Cream.
My favourite dessert among the assortment is the Durian Pudding. I could forgo everything else for only this item. I was told the Bo Bo Cha Cha is equally good too. So for non-Durian fan, try this instead.
Finally, end the meal with Fruits. Complimentary Coffee or Tea is offered as part of the buffet too.
I was surprise to find the spread at Asian Market Cafe @ Fairmont Singapore to be delicious. Though the Indian Bread, both Nan and Roti weren’t up to expectation, the rest was better than expected. I would recommend this buffet at The Fairmont Hotel to readers of NAHMJ
