Eat your fill and eat even more
I’ve always blamed my huge appetite for burning a hole in my pocket. Going for buffets is one of the best deals for big eaters but let’s be real, these supersized meals ain’t cheap. Being on a constant look out for huge portions that are value for money, I’ve found 10 places with free and unlimited add-ons to unleash the glutton in you!
1. Nasi Lemak Kukus
Jio your teammates to Nasi Lemak Kukus when you feel like you can eat a horse after an intense workout because you get to pile on warm fragrant nasi lemak rice for free! Choose your own ingredients or a Chicken Wing Set ($4), which contains a hard boiled egg, omelette, ikan bilis, fried fish and chicken wing. The flavourful coconut rice and their signature chilli should tame that growling stomach of yours.
