Save more with these value-for-money buffet deals
A month-long marathon of shopping begins again, as The Great Singapore Sale (GSS) returns from 21 June to 28 July 2019. But the good news doesn’t end here, as the return of GSS coincides with the rollout of buffet promotions by numerous restaurants.
It’s thus a great time to be a Maybank Cardmember, as you can enjoy up to 50% discounts at various fancy buffets in town. From Japanese grub to high-tea buffet, here are great pit stops to recharge at during your shopping spree.
1. Marriott Cafe (Singapore Marriott Tang Plaza Hotel)
Take a half-day off and pamper yourself with the Local High Tea Buffet ($45++ for weekdays, $48++ for weekends) at Marriott Cafe. Offering an impressive variety of local delights, this cosy restaurant is a popular hideaway amongst Singaporeans. Wolf down their umami-packed Hokkien Mee and fiery Otak Otak, before treating yourself to the Crispy Fried Chicken Wings.
Be sure to leave plenty of space for dessert! Marriott Cafe takes pride in their gorgeous confectioneries, including their assorted Nyonya Kueh and ultra-soft Sticky Date Pudding.
From now till 30 September 2019, sweeten the deal by flashing your Maybank Credit or Debit Card and scoring 50% off their High Tea Buffet! However, do make reservations at least two days in advance, and note that the promotion is limited to the first 50 diners each day – so it is best to swing down slightly before 3pm.

Equally exciting is their International Cuisine Gallery, which reels you in with crisp roasted duck and salted egg yolk crab.

As your main is being prepared, take a walk to their Charcuterie and Cheese room and sample the assortment of preserved meat. Special mention goes out to their Air Dried Pork Belly that unfurls with tinges of floral sweetness.
The various mains are equally impressive, with my favourite being their Grilled Australian Beef Striploin. A worthy treat for any carnivore, this thick slab of meat is dreamily tender. The gentlest bite unleashes a wave of moreish juices – a testament to its succulence.
