Photography, Craft & Travels



I know I will kick myself one day if I don’t put this down in the blog. At least I won’t have to worry about losing the article. Here’s a list of the best-known buffets in town (according to Lifestyle on 18 April 2004). I’m even going to tell you how much it’ll cost your pocket. 🙂 This is definitely not for the Kate Mosses.

  10. Palm’s Asian Brasserie(International Buffet and Steamboat Buffet) cost 30+ per person .. solid steamboat buffet lots of variety, but think they got different fare on different days . got to check with them .. Nice ambience and great food … tel:2503322

    i think value for money the merchant court hotel ellenbourgh cafe is good .

    For indo buffet can try lagun sari.. it’s ala carte buffet.. the food is not too bad but the price is great. for lunch it is $13.50 or $19.50 for different set of ala carte dishes.. the other indo buffet can be tried is the ricetable(cuppage/internation building/suntec) . both restuarants serve javanese based indo food which is sweeter in nature .. hope that helps.
