Ever had one of those days when you’re craving for something sweet, but you know a chocolate or an energy bar just won’t cut it? Maybe it’s time to treat yourself to a full on dessert buffet.
Singapore has quite a few dessert buffets, with some specialising in ice cream, some going big on chocolate, and others with a little bit of everything.
Here are eight places with dessert buffets that you can indulge in, and save the regret for later.
1. Thanying Restaurant
Thanying Restaurant in Amara Hotel is known for its authentic Thai cuisine that gives you a chance to experience what it feels to dine like Thai royalty.
The set menus, which include a traditional Thai dessert buffet, cost around $60 – $70. However, if you want to feast on desserts alone, there is a really affordable a la carte price of $9++ just for the dessert buffet.
Head down to get your fill of a substantial variety of traditional Thai cakes, shaved ice and fresh fruits!
Thanying Restaurant: Amara Hotel, 165 Tanjong Pagar Road, #02-00, Singapore 088539 | Opening Hours: (Mon to Sat) 11am – 3pm, 6.30pm – 11pm, Closed on Sundays | Tel: +65 6222 4688 | Website
Scoopz is a local ice cream parlour that has an all-you-can-eat ice cream and waffle buffet for $18. However, you can save $6 if you purchase your buffet ticket from Qoo10.
Scoopz specialises in fruit-based ice creams that are seasonal, such as Guava, Cempadak, and Honey Persimmon. Ice cream lovers can also find classics such as Rum & Raisin, Sea Salt Caramel, and Thai Milk Tea.
Buffet tickets are valid for three months after the date of purchase, so buy now and schedule a date later!
3. Little Ice Cream Kafe (LICK)
Little Ice Cream Kafe (LICK) is another local ice cream parlour that has scrumptious flavours such as Tequila Rose, White Chocolate Cheese Cake, and Toffee Almond Nut Latte.
The ice cream buffet ($15) also includes free-flow waffles like Scoopz, but they take it up another notch by offering free-flow toppings as well. Prepare to indulge yourself silly with all the ice cream that you can eat, but keep in mind that this only happens on a Friday!
Little Ice Cream Kafe: 258 Tanjong Katong Road, Singapore 437046 | Buffet Hours: (Fridays) 2pm – 4pm, 6pm – 8pm | Tel: +65 6440 8526 | Website
4. Swensen’s (ION Outlet)
Alright, I’ll admit it — Swensen’s is a no-brainer choice for dessert buffets, but I bring this up because the Swensen’s at the ION outlet is a step above the rest.
For $19.90, not only will you be able to try up to 50 flavours of ice cream and add as many toppings as you want; you will also be able to go crazy with a chocolate fountain and help yourself to various pastries and cakes.
Do take note that it costs $19.90 for adults and $14.90 for children on weekdays, and $20.90 and $15.90 respectively on weekends.
You can also get about $6 off your buffet if you order a main first and purchase the buffet later as an add-on.
5. Coffee Lounge @ Goodwood Park Hotel
The Coffee Lounge at Goodwood Park Hotel now offers a dessert buffet spread ($38.80) till 31 July 2017. As part of the Durian Fiesta 2017, six D24 durian desserts will be included in the buffet, as well as many other delicious cakes, ice cream, and local desserts.
You can expect interesting and delicious pastries such as a durian doughnut, durian pancakes (made on the spot at a station), and a durian mousse cake. Bring a friend who has a serious love for durians and go crazy at this buffet!
Located in the Four Seasons Hotel, One-Ninety is a restaurant that combines both desserts and appetisers into one satisfying buffet.
This combination may seem odd to some — why appetisers and desserts, and not a buffet of everything? It makes sense to me though, as you can stuff yourself with desserts until it gets too jelak, then you can feel better by having some savoury appetisers, or vice versa. After that, just repeat the cycle till you’re in a food coma.
Foodies are bound to have a great time here, but take note that the buffet lasts for only two and a half hours on weekdays, and three hours on weekends. It’s $42++ for adults and $21++ for children.
7. The Landing Point
The Landing Point at Fullerton Bay Hotel technically doesn’t have a dessert buffet spread, but it has something that comes pretty close — Evening Tea ($45++), a high tea set that can be replenished without limit.
The set includes tea, pastries, sweets, and canapes. In some ways, this is even better than a buffet. For instance, instead of selecting food that has been displayed in a buffet line for some time, your food is freshly prepared only upon order.
Also, any lady who eats here is bound to feel pretty pampered and like a tai tai in this elegant and beautiful restaurant, so why not treat your mother, wife, or girlfriend to tea at The Landing Point?
The Landing Point: Fullerton Bay Hotel, 80 Collyer Quay, Singapore 049326 | Buffet Hours: 6.30pm – 10.30pm | Tel: +65 6597 5277 | Website
8. The Cheese And Chocolate Bar @ Club55
The final buffet in the list is quite literally levels above the rest. The Cheese and Chocolate Bar in Club 55, Marina Bay Sands, is located on the 55th floor and gives you an excellent view to gaze at while enjoying your wine, cheese, (and chocolate.)
Granted, this is an odd combination, as cheese and chocolate are both very rich and indulgent foods that can get overwhelming. However, there have been no complaints so far as the selection of over 40 chocolate-themed desserts and 12 varieties of cheese are exquisite ($48++, adults; $24++, children).
This is a great place to impress your date, and is sure to please cheese and chocolate aficionados.
