If you’re a fan of seafood, you’ll know that seafood – and especially fresh seafood – is typically quite expensive. Order just a few dishes and you’ll find that you’ll already have racked up quite the bill.
For that reason, we love getting our seafood fix from a buffet. Plus, who doesn’t love a spread of food you can have seconds, thirds, and even fourths of if you like?
Previously, PARKROYAL on Pickering’s Lime Restaurant gave us Lobsterfest, a decadent lobster affair that saw the star shellfish dished up in a spectacular variety of ways, such as in risotto, mac and cheese, laksa, cooked with a truffled hollandaise, and more.
This time, the restaurant is back with a new themed buffet, and it’ll be featuring the best of what lies under the sea.
It’s latest offering, “What the Shell” is a seafood buffet where you’ll find a wide array of fresh shellfish and crustaceans – cold, cooked, or dished up with an inventive spin. Think succulent scallops, juicy prawns, sweet crabs…
The best part? Some of the dishes you loved (or missed out on!) during Lobsterfest will be making a re-appearance!
What The Shell!?
Happening from 22 September, some of the highlights at this buffet line are Lobster on Ice, Sauteed Vongole with Chardonnay Scallion, Gratinated Escargots with Pesto Sauce and of course, everyone’s favourite Singapore Chilli Crab.
Other must-tries are Lime’s signature Maine Lobster Laksa, Flower Crab and Shellfish Claypot Congee, and Steamed Ireland Razor Clam with Garlic.
Straight From The Grill
If you love the smoky, charred flavour of food (particularly seafood) over a barbecue, you’ll want to head on outside to the outdoor barbecue.
Savour the flavours and aromas of flame-grilled fresh ocean bounty. Feast on Half-Shelled Scallops and Oysters with Bonito Soy Butter and enjoy Drunken Whole Tiger Prawns with Salt served straight from the grill!
Keep your eyes open for the Hourly Chef’s Surprise at 7.30pm and 8.30pm. Deep-fried Soft Shell Crab with Salted Egg Yolk or Maine Lobster with Jalepeno, Garlic and Butter will make quick appearances at the live station, so grab your portion before they disappear off the shelves. After all, a little bit of kiasu-ness never hurt anyone!
Shots, Shots, Shots
And by shots, we mean those of the Oyster variety.
Only three lucky diners will get to attempt the Oyster Shooter Challenge each day. Down 12 alcohol-infused oyster shooters within three minutes, and you get to enjoy dinner on the house! That, and you’ll also win a spot on Lime Restaurant’s “Shell of Fame” (Hall of fame, get it?).
This challenge will go on for 10 weeks, and the diner who manages to down the highest number of shooters will get to take home a $100 dining voucher.
The buffet will set you back $99++ per adult and $59++ per child. Children below 5 years of age get to dine for free. To make a reservation at this buffet, drop them a call at 6809 8899.
If you’ve got a special occasion coming up – a birthday, an anniversary – or you just want to pamper someone you love, spoil them with this gourmet spread! Featuring a stunning variety of the freshest catch prepared in a host of different ways, eat to your heart’s content at Lime Restaurant!
