10 1-for-1 Hotel Buffets To Enter A Joint Food Coma With Your Squad

19th May 2017

1-for-1 hotel buffets with your partners-in-crime  

As much as I love my main squad, there’s just one thing about them that I need to get off my chest. We take an average of half an hour to decide on what cuisine to eat, and then another torturous 20 minutes deciding on where. The foodie in me dies a little each time someone suggests a lunch date, because I can already imagine how long the wait will be till I can even see the food.

This year, I’ve upped my game with UOB YOLO, which offers all Cardmembers a variety of food deals, including 1-for-1 hotel buffets! Nobody in my clique has the right to whine or complain anymore, ‘cause these buffets offer various cuisines all under one roof. Plus, buffet-hopping can now finally be a thing!

1. Ellenborough Market Café, Swissôtel Merchant Court

It would be a pity to leave Ellenborough Market Café without snapping an #OOTD within their picturesque space – think high ceilings, Peranakan tiles, and pastel-coloured walls. While their buffet lunch (U.P. $52++) offer allows you and your gang to chomp down on a variety of Indian, Chinese, and Japanese dishes, their specialty lies in their Peranakan options. A few that caught my fancy include the fish head curry fish, sambal eggplant salad, and durian pengat.

Address: 20 Merchant Road, Singapore 058281
1-for-1 buffet hours: Mon-Sat 12pm to 2:30pm

Only available till the end of June, their Lobster & BBQ Extravaganza (U.P. $90++ from Sun-Thur, $100++ from Fri-Sat) makes for an incredibly sumptuous dinner for seafood lovers. Savour fresh sashimi, oysters, and lobsters stuffed with roe in any way you desire – barbequed, grilled, or stir-fried. I like my seafood cooked, so Lobster Bisque and Wok-fried Salted Egg Lobster are my top picks. Be sure to help yourself to a scoop – or more – of gelato from their brand new Gelato Bar as well!
