Public service notice: Do not read this post when hungry. If you find yourself drooling over your phone or computer while reading, immediately head to Chope to make a reservation at Carousel for what could possibly be the tastiest High Tea Buffet in Singapore…and here’s what to expect!
Your stomach growls as you take a step into the brightly lit interior of the restaurant, seduced by the scent of food wafting through the air.
“Mmmm, that smells sooo good,” you think to yourself.
Without hesitation, you head towards the buffet line, ready to dig in. Platters of tantalising food greet you – Mediterranean, Asian, Japanese, Seafood, Dim Sum, and not one, but THREE dazzling dessert stations.
Your gaze drifts over the four uniquely themed dining spaces. You have the requisite Japanese selections of sashimi, sushi, and teppanyaki – they may not grab your attention immediately like the three dessert bars (we can’t get over this), but they are highly underrated. At the Rotisserie section (yep, that’s where that amazing smell is coming from), you’ll find a Chicken Kebab (Shovaslaki) live station where meat is carved straight from the roasting spit onto a pita bread or tortilla, packed with fresh greens, and then drizzled with creamy mayonnaise before serving. There’s also a Nasi Lemak station with a large variety of sides and mains to accompany the fragrant coconut rice, such as Baked Chicken with a Sambal Peanut Sauce and Sambal Prawns with Beancurd and Quail Eggs.
If that wasn’t enough, there’s also a live Popiah station, Waffle station, Deli corner, Seafood on Ice, and so much more, you’ll be spoilt for choice!
With an innovative culinary concept and lavish spread promising to delight the taste buds, Carousel at Royal Plaza on Scotts has earned itself the ‘Best Halal Spot’ in Chope’s Diners’ Choice Awards 2016, and we can say with authority it is 100% deserved.
Just in case everything mentioned previously wasn’t enough temptation for you, for the month of July, diners will get to enjoy their Tantalizing Taiwanese High Tea featuring a medley of Taiwanese delicacies and delightful small bites from Taiwan’s popular night markets in addition to their usual high-tea offerings!
On the menu are popular snacks such as Crispy Chicken Thigh with Oriental Spices (综合盐酥鸡), Oyster Mee Sua (蚵仔面线), and Braised Beef Brisket Noodle Soup (红烧牛肉面). There will also be a variety of braised dishes at the Taiwan Stew Station such as braised chicken wings and beancurd tofu, served with assorted sauces and condiments.
Fans of the iconic Taiwanese street food, Oyster Omelette (蚵仔煎), can happily indulge at the Teppanyaki live station, which will also be serving up steaming hot, Pan-fried Crystal Buns (水煎包) .
Other highlights of the high tea include Braised Seafood in Bread Toast (台湾棺材板), also known as ‘Coffin Toast’, Taiwan Spring Roll (台湾润饼), Grilled Taiwan Sausages (台湾香肠), and Flaky Scallion Pancakes (葱油饼).
Finally, to round out the meal, indulge your sweet tooth with signature Taiwanese desserts such as Shaved Ice (综合冰) with your choice of flavored toppings and condiments, Lemon Aiyu Jelly, and Taiwanese Pineapple Tarts (台湾凤梨酥). Or you could go to one of the three dessert bars. Just sayin’.
This promotion will be available from 3 – 13 July, during the high tea period from 3.30pm to 5.30pm at $42++ for adults and $27++ for children on weekdays. On weekends, it will be $48++ for adults and $32++ for children.
What are you waiting for? Give yourself a pat on the back for getting through half of 2017, and delight your taste buds with tantalising Taiwanese treats!
