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. Tengawa Hokkaido White Curry
Japanese curries usually disappoint me with either too little rice or too little gravy. But that’s not a problem at Tengawa Hokkaido White Curry, as they offer both free-flow rice and unlimited top-ups of curry!
Prepared with Hokkaido milk, the velvety curry goes well with any meat. But it truly shines in their Crunchy Chicken Katsu White Curry Set ($15.80++). Milky, mildly spicy, and a tad savoury, the sauce adds depth to the crispy cutlet.

2. Morton’s Bar

Off-work hours are precious, so end your day on the right note by having a tipple at Morton’s Bar. Drop by from between 5 to 7 pm and enjoy their complimentary free-flow filet mignon sandwiches. The tender beef slices are sandwiched between fluffy buns, creating a savoury treat that you simply can’t miss.
3. Charcoal-Grill & Salad Bar Keisuke
It seems Keisuke Tanada – the brains behind Omurice Keisuke and now Charcoal-Grill & Salad Bar Keisuke – can do no wrong. The latter is garnering snaking queues with their Charcoal Grilled Mackerel Set ($11.90++) and other sumiyaki-style dishes.
While your dish is prepared, hop by their free flow salad bar and placate your hunger with the extensive spread of side dishes. A good starting point is their kanakama coleslaw; the shreds of crab stick empowers the creamy slaw with tinges of sweetness.

Banchan (side dishes) are synonymous with Korean cuisine and Kim’s Family Korean Restaurant pampers you with free-flow side dishes. From Budae Jigae ($36++) to Daeji Bulgogi ($25++), every main is accompanied by 12 different side dishes. My favourite is the potato salad, which has been puréed to a fine texture and glides off my tongue. Diced apples are also hidden in the potato and contrast nicely with their crunchiness and fruity sweetness.

10. Simple Burger Inc
Staring at the assortment of vegetables on display at the entrance, you may mistake Simple Burger Inc for a salad bar. But, just as its name suggests, this sleek joint is actually a burger specialist. The leading actor is their Chicken Patty Burger ($8), which instantly reminds you of Sausage McMuffin with its bold flavours.
There’s a free-flow buffet of greens here, so feel free to stack your burger with tomatoes, pickles, and more!
