Street 50 Restaurant and Bar of the Bay Hotel Singapore has curated a lunch buffet, titled The Buffet Egg-Xperience, for the Easter weekend from 25 to 27 March 2016. This year the restaurant has partnered with the First and Only Pasteurized fresh eggs in Singapore from the N&N Farm and freshly laid quail eggs from Uncle William’s quail farm, and together with Gardenasia to bring an array of egg related menu and activities to complement the Easter theme. Gardenasia is the nature-based events management arm of the Nyee Phoe Group that that co-organizing the Kranji Countryside Farmers Market.
At The Buffet Egg-Xperience, diners will be entertained with egg-citing quail stories and egg-ducational talks by the renowned Uncle William Ho. He is affectionately known as “The Quail Man of Lim Chu Kang”. He is the co-owner of the game-bird farm, Lian Wah Hang Farm. And that’s not all! Diners could try your hand at the alfresco Easter egg terrarium workshop conducted by Gardenasia’s ‘egg-ffervescent’ instructors.
So much so on the activities during the Easter weekend. Now let us look at what are the highlights on food offered at the Buffet Egg-Xperience. There are a good mix of Chinese and Western with the featured ingredients, EGGS! And only pasteurized fresh eggs from N&N Farm are used. As such diners could enjoy the eggs with a peace of mind since the pasteurisation process kill Salmonella or Bird Flu Virus which may be present inside or outside the eggs.
On the Chinese selection, first we have the Chinese Cold Cuts comprising Jellyfish, Marinated Octopus, Prawn Salad, Spring Rolls and Deep-fried Quail Eggs. This is a typical Chinese Cold Cuts Combination that is commonly served at Chinese banquet. But what is unique at this buffet is the quail egg was served.
The 62 Degree Celsius Soft Boiled Egg in BRAND’S Essence of Chicken is one of the highlights at the Buffet Egg-Xperience. In it there is a runny yolk which I adore. But as there is BRAND’S Essence of Chicken added, it would be a Love it or Hate it dish, depending on one’s prefer for the Chicken Essence. Personally, I detest Chicken Essence. But maybe due to the runny yolk that I am biased over, I find this dish acceptable.
Next the healthy and homely Braised Tofu with Crabmeat and Egg White is also part of the buffet. I am not a Tofu fan and am neutral to this dish. But I am in tune with the other diners of the night that the gravy was flavourful.
The next dish, the Signature XO Fried Rice with Crabmeat is very well-liked by diners, including myself. Flavourful and yet homely. It reminded me of my mom’s fried rice.
For diners who enjoyed spicy dishes, you are in luck. At Buffet Egg-Xperience, 2 spicy dishes were offered. First on the deck is the Oven-roasted Chicken with Poached Eggs in Spicy Tomato Sauce. Lightly spicy with tender breast meat and olive to add an unique flavour to the dish. However, Olive is not an ingredient well accepted by many, hence some may find the flavour not too pleasing.
The next dish is my favourite among all the dishes we tried for the night, the Sambal Prawns with Quail Eggs. A little more spicy than the Chicken dish but still at an acceptable spice level for most. Unless one’s spicy tolerance is really low. The sambal was fragrant. It is similar to the typical sambal prawn dish offered in the Peranankan restaurants.
Two of the Western dishes spotlights are on the Potato Salad with Pommery Mayonnaise and Scotch Eggs with Mustard Sauce. The Potato salad has always been a crowd pleaser.
While the Scotch Eggs with Mustard Sauce, such a classic English dish. I think the minced meat that coated the egg used is chicken. Most of us felt that it tasted so much better when the scotch eggs were eaten with the mustard sauce.
There are lots more other dishes at the Buffet Egg-Xperience with omelette in truffle oil, sunny side up, scrambled egg and etc at the Live Station and even Laksa with Quail Eggs at the Action Station. And many more …
