I seldom go for buffets as I do not eat that much and the prices these days at buffets horrify me. Brunches in Singapore on weekends easily cost $150 per person and I honestly do not think I eat even $100 worth of food so it is definitely a big waste going to buffets for me. In fact, none of my family members like buffets either. But some of my friends can really eat and the amazing thing is that they are the skinny ones.
Basilico Restaurant at the Regent Hotel has made a name for itself, serving great Italian dishes and many of them are not commonly found in Singapore. And many Singaporeans do not come here as they do not serve truckloads of seafood – in case you are not familiar with Singaporeans, we can eat a lot of oysters, chilli crabs and sashimi. I have seen people pile plates and plates of freshly shucked oysters and sashimi back to their tables. And they can eat for 4 hours till the restaurant closes.
The dishes here are fresh, delicious and I love all the different types of ham, salami and cheeses. I had a lot of these at this buffet.
This buffet is about fresh ingredients. Most of the dishes are not complicated and that is good Italian cuisine. There are some hot Chinese dishes, I guess for tourists who might want to have more choices but I did not try those.
Take a look at the dishes and you will be tempted to visit the next time you have an Italian craving!
