Buffet lines are where Singaporeans’ talent at queuing is put to use the best, in my opinion. We strategise which stations to hit first, which dishes need to take up more space on our plate, and how to best to delegate each friend to a station so that everyone at the table gets to sample every single item on the buffet line.
As most places are re-adjusting to the ‘new normal’, here’s 10 Halal Buffet suggestions to add to your conquest to sample that will bring you back to the good ol’ days of dining in.
Following Singapore’s current law, dine-in services will be available for up to a maximum of five fully vaccinated pax per table.
