This is for all the meat lovers out there! From now till 30 June 2019, Furama Singapore will be catering to your inner carnivore with Meat Up @ Furama.
This buffet will be held across their three restaurants, The [email protected] Furama (Furama RiverFront), Kintamani Indonesian Restaurant (Furama RiverFront) and Tiffany Café & Restaurant (Furama City Centre), with different cuts of meat as the main attraction. You can savour premium roasts and fork-tender meat doused with a generous dose of gravy and sauces.
I know, I’m salivating just thinking about it. Here are the main highlights from each restaurant that you can’t miss out on.
You will find The [email protected] Furama on the second level of Furama RiverFront. Helmed by Chef Jackson, you can always expect an exciting international buffet and a la carte spread. Plus, there is an All-day One-For-One promotion on buffet prices.
We’ll start off with one of the great classics. As a bonafide beef lover, the Pan-Roasted Angus Beef Tenderloin With Mushroom Ragout, Garlic Chip and Truffle Jus hits the mark.
This grain-fed Australian beef was beautifully marbled and cooked medium-rare, just the way I like it. I assure you, each delicious slab was juicy and succulent. Paired with the fragrant mushroom ragout, you would certainly be asking for seconds.
As with any buffet spread, you can expect a live carving station for the ultimate meat dining experience.
Another meat dish that I wasn’t expecting to enjoy from the Meat Up selection was the Slow-Cooked Grain-fed Kangaroo Tail. I know what you’re thinking, “Kangaroo, really?”.
A rather exotic cut of meat, I was a little apprehensive about trying this dish. I was told that kangaroo tail tastes similar to oxtail and indeed it looks like a much smaller version of oxtail.
Kangaroo meat tends to be a little finicky to prepare since it has less fat than beef, making it prone to drying out. This round of meat was unbelievably tender, practically falling off the bone. Definitely an indication of the chef’s level of expertise.
This has to be my new favourite cut of meat, next to beef. The kangaroo meat tasted a little gamey but definitely not as prominent as lamb. Sitting atop a lovely bed of mashed potatoes, this was hearty and satisfying.
If you are a huge seafood fanatic, be prepared for the exceptional smorgasbord of crustaceans and shellfish. From plump snails to sweet and succulent crabs to fat clams, I couldn’t wait to dig into the seafood pile atop a mountain of ice. This is what dreams are made of!

A pioneer in its own right, Kintamani Indonesian Restaurant is the first Halal establishment to open in a hotel.
Here, you can expect a scrumptious and authentic Balinese spread. You can enjoy exceptional traditional Balinese cuisine, as well as a modern take on these beloved dishes.
One item to look forward is the Wok-Fried Spicy Prawn with Wild Petai. The prawns are first deep-fried so that scrumptious crust forms. Then, they are covered with a lip-smacking sauce made from a blend of yellow ginger, lime leaves, fresh chilli and garlic.
These prawns were succulent and juicy, something I’m sure seafood lovers would surely gravitate towards.
For those of you with a sweet tooth, here is a creative rendition of the goreng pisang. This Pan-fried Stuffed Banana With Mozzarella Cheese consists of sweet banana fritter with good caramelisation. It’s a delightful way to end your Meat Up Buffet!

Located in Furuma City Centre, Tiffany Café & Restaurant is decked out in that trademark baby blue hue. They serve up an array of international cuisine from the buffet spread, as well as perennial favourites from their Halal-certified kitchen.
We started off with the Classic Onion Soup With Oxtail, complete with the signature toasted baguette topping the soup.
Warm and comforting, this was a great start to the meal. The chunks of oxtail were soft and flavourful and before I knew it, the soup was gone.
We also had the Baked Chicken With Coconut Spices, a quirky and interesting take on the classic meat. Within the winning marinade, you can find green chilli, chilli padi, candlenut, lemongrass, coconut cream and lime leaf. All these lend a brightness and freshness to the chicken.
As expected, the chicken pulled apart easily and every mouthful was delicious. A dish with an Asian flair is always a win in my book.
If you can still go for something a little heavier, the Braised Lamb Shank is a good option.
Braised with the entire bone in, the lamb was rich, flavourful and tender.
Lastly, to complete the meal, I highly recommend the Sticky Date Pudding With Vanilla Ice Cream With Butterscotch. As someone who loves desserts, this one takes the literal cake for me.
The date pudding is everything you’d expect: sweet, sticky with caramel undertones. Paired with vanilla ice cream and drizzled with a generous amount of butterscotch, this is the perfect end to the meal.
