Bar & Billiard Room, Raffles Hotel

Bar & Billard Room, Raffles Hotel

Buffet Lunch at Bar & Billard is distinctive western. You will not find any local cusine in this buffet. As requested by the hotel, we did not take any photos of the buffet table. Hence the spread is taken at our table.

Appetizers served include: Homemade Smoked Salmon, Parma Ham, Gammon, Vegetable Gazpacho, Marinated and Grilled Assorted Vegetables. Soup served include Leek and Potato Cream and Chicken Soup

Not forgetting the Pasta Station whereby the chef will prepare pasta of your choice on the spot. I chose the Carbonara.


Main Course includes: Pan-fried Salmon on the Skin with Champagne Sauce, Broccoli and Caulifower Gratin with Comte Cheese, Scallops in Sweet Wine Sauce, Pan Fried Chicken Flavoured with Tarragon, Braised Beef with Carrot Confit. Also do not miss out their carving Live station where they have the chef selection of fish and meat based on the daily market.

Desserts served include: Vanilla and Grape Bread Pudding, Apple Cinnamon and Rasin Crumble and selection of their in house cakes.


Overall if you are looking for spread, lobster, meat etc, you would probably be disappointed with this buffet. What this buffet offers is its ambience as the whole deco is similar to those old colonial houses. If you asked me what was memorable in this buffet, it would be the carbonara (seldom you find such excellent carbonara on a buffet table), veal (so tender and juicy) as well as the scallops (succulent, well-marinated and big).

Wow, before I continue... Let me wish you a HAPPY 21st BIRTHDAY =)

May your birthday wishes come true...

Arh... Bar and Billard @ Raffles Hotel, I have to say I am neither impressed nor disappointed with the place but having seen the dining guide sent by Raffles Hotel, I thought I might share with you what some of the restaurants at Raffles Hotel are offering.

At Raffles Grill (Classic French Continental cuisine with contemporary overtones), they have a 3 courses executive set lunch @ $65++ per person.

Long Bar Steakhouse (Plantation Cuisine, premium steaks) serves semi buffet lunch (with main course) @ $52++ per adult...

If you want the details, I can always forward you the details. Too much to type everything in.

Just another piece of gd news:

The condition is tt one of diner must be 44 yr old n above. Such exclusive news will only be available to pan pacfic members n the membership is totally free! I really enjoy their lunch buffet in global kitchen! Aquamarine is such a mere disappointment!

Fabulous shots! It all looks so classy and delicious!

Fen said...

Hazel: Sorry to miss out your reply. Yea, I have your email, it is, am I right?

Wow, thank you for your information with regards to Global Kitchen. 44% sounds good but I doubt my parents are into buffets...

Yea, went to Aquamarine twice last year and it wasn't as good as I expect it to be, considering it is ranked together with the Line, Carousel and Melts.

Camemberu: Thank you very much for the compliment.
