There are a few restaurants in Singapore that offer à la carte dim sum buffets on weekend. However, it’s more than just food these days. A restaurant’s location and ambiance are often a key factor in attracting the customers.
The à la carte weekend dim sum buffet at Mandarin Court is one such place to check out. Perched on the 35th floor of Mandarin Orchard Hotel, this dim sum buffet experience offers you a sweeping view of Orchard Road – the shopping belt of Singapore, while you indulge in over 80 exquisite and novel dim sum fares, featuring a mix of creative flair and culinary mastery by Mandarin Court’s master chefs.
Start off with dim sum favorites such as steamed dumpling with hot and sour sauce, steamed ‘siew mai’ with mushroom, steamed fluffy barbecued pork bun, steamed ‘cheong fan’ rice roll with prawn and pork congee with century egg.
The variety does not stop at dim sum. The buffet menu also leaves you spoilt for choice with a dizzying array of mains and noodles such as wok-baked prawn in oatmeal, pan-seared sliced sea perch in superior sauce, roasted pork ribs in “Wu Xi” style and fried Amoy vermicelli with assorted seafood.
End your meal with a selection of refreshing and rejuvenating sweet treats such as the popular steamed custard bun, Teochew classic yam paste with pumpkin and gingko nut, light and tantalising lemon jelly, aloe vera in calamansi juice or everyone’s favourite chilled mango pudding.
Mandarin Court serves dim sum that’s fit for a king. Even the views of the bustling city below won’t distract you from the tasty dishes. So start your weekend with a hearty dim sum brunch before you set out on your shopping spree.
Price: $48.00++ per adult, $24++ per child (5 to 12 years old). Additional $10 per person on Public Holidays
