Ramadan buffet spots in Singapore
My best friends are Muslim. So in secondary school, I would usually fast and have Iftar – the meal at sunset that breaks their fast – with them during Ramadan. We would always arrive at a halal food court 30 minutes earlier to secure a table, but even so, it was usually difficult for the four of us to get a spot. Fast forward to today, we now have a higher spending power, and can safely reserve a table at restaurants to break fast. Here are some Ramadan buffet spots I’ll be checking out this 2018!
We adored the spread over at Azur! Their Sedap-licious Ramadan Buffet ($68++) offers 30% off for every group of 10 adult diners. A cosy restaurant tucked away in Crowne Plaza Hotel, which is inside Changi Airport’s Terminal Three, we stuffed ourselves silly with savoury and sweet treats ranging from seafood paella to Nonya kueh! A must-try is their special Satay-marinated Australian Beef Short Ribs. The earthy-tasting meat is so tender, you can scrape it off the bone using a spoon. Black charcoal wafer cones are provided alongside ice-cream at the dessert station too.
Address: 75 Airport Boulevard, Crowne Plaza Hotel, Changi Airport Terminal Three, Singapore 819664
Buffet dates and time: 7 May 2018 to 30 June 2018, Mon-Sun 6pm to 10pm

Buka puasa at AquaMarine’s Ramadan Iftar Dinner ($72++ for Sun-Thur, $82++ for Fri-Sat and eve of PH)!

On Fridays and Saturdays, there will also be a Middle Eastern Roasted Whole Baby Lamb that’s served with mint yoghurt, spicy tomato salsa and chilli dip. If you’re coming along with little ones between 17 and 30 May 2018, you will be glad to know that children below 12 years-old dine for free with every paying adult!
