PARKROYAL on Kitchener Road: Lobsters & Crabs Buffet Is Staying For Good + New Flavours

PARKROYAL on Kitchener Road Lobster Buffet

The launch of the Union of Crabs & Lobsters Dinner Buffet at Spice Brasserie in PARKROYAL on Kitchener Road has revived another craze amongst the Nation, and this value-for-money buffet has been such a huge success.

Because we all recognise that we can never get enough of crabs and lobsters, the team behind Spice Brasserie has a good news for us all—the promotion is extended until 2017! If you did not manage to get your reservation or missed out on this superb deal previously, this is your chance to go for it.

Flame-grilled Lobster

The extended Union of Crabs & Lobsters Dinner Buffet (S$129++ for two pax, min 4 persons to dine) will run from Thursdays to Sundays from now all the way until 22 January 2017. If you have been, well, you would want to know that there are several new flavours.

Yes, this is a dinner you need.

Executive Chef Low now has 10 options (comprising lobsters, crabs and other types of shellfish) for your indulgence; some are from the previous buffet line-up, and the remaining is new recipes. The experience at Spice Brasserie includes several live stations where you can watch the chefs in action as they grill your lobster orders a la minute.

PARKROYAL Kitchener Slipper Lobster

WOK FRIED SLIPPER LOBSTER IN FERMENTED BLACK BEAN SAUCE

We are such typical Chinese and of course we love the Wok Fried Slipper Lobster in Fermented Black Bean Sauce. Unsurprisingly, it also happens to be our favourite lobster dish on the table—it is impossible to resist these fresh, plump slipper lobsters drenched in earthy fermented bean sauce and garnished with onion, ginger, garlic and chilli.

We recommend using your hands when having this dish so you will be able to fully savour every bit of the fragrant sauce.

PARKROYAL Kitchener Bouillabaisse

SHELLFISH BOUILLABAISSE

Bouillabaisse is a traditional fish stew originating from Marseille, and the idea is various kinds of fish in a pot. It only makes sense that at the Union of  Crabs & Lobsters, Chef Low whips up a bouillabaisse comprising the freshest catches of lobster, crab, black mussel and prawns in a fish saffron broth.

In case you did not know, saffron is a highly prized spice and its distinctive aroma is used to enhance the flavours of a dish.

PARKROYAL Kitchener Soft Shell Crab Maki

SPICY SOFT SHELL CRAB MAKI

We always advocate not wasting your stomach space on carbs when you are at a buffet but we are making it an exception for this Japanese-styled Spicy Soft Shell Crab Maki.

We could hear the delightful crunch when we bit into the maki, and this is attributed by the perfect crisp of the deep-fried soft shell crab. The crabs are paired with Japanese Cucumber, Green Frisee and Karashi Sauce—all wrapped in moist Japanese rice.

PARKROYAL Kitchener Mentaiko Lobster

FLAME-GRILLED MENTAIKO LOBSTER

Nothing pleases the crowd more than the Flame-Grilled Mentaiko Lobster, which was evidently the most popular flavour from the previous buffet run. And it is here to stay!

Fresh lobsters are grilled at high heat directly over the fire to give it a hint of smoky flavour. Mayonnaise and creamy mentaiko sauce are then piled atop the exposed flesh, before the lobsters are torched again to melt the cream mixture. A few drops of lemon juice are then added for an extra zest. Well ,you really have to postpone your diet plans for this!

BAKED SEA-SCALLOP WITH LIGHT LOBSTER GLAZED

This is a bonus on top of all the crabs and lobsters. The scallops are covered with a blanket of thick mozzarella cheese and a touch of lobster reduction sauce before they are put to bake.

PARKROYAL Kitchener Yuzu Lobster

POACHED LOBSTER IN YUZU SAUCE

Replacing the Poached Lobster in Chinese Wine is the Poached Lobster in Yuzu Sauce. It is “same same but different”—lobsters are poached over high heat, then doused in a refreshing homemade yuzu sauce.

This option is available at the live station.

PARKROYAL Kitchener Lobster Roll

GRATIN LOBSTER CLAW IN CRUSTY SOFT BUN

What’s a lobster party without lobster roll?

Yes, the Union of Crabs & Lobsters Buffet will be introducing the Gratin Lobster Claw in Crusty Soft Bun, their very own version of lobster roll—prepared a la minute—to the buffet lineup this time. Bet you are as excited as we are!

Soft buns are first toasted, then lavishly stuffed with sweet lobster meat.

CLAYPOT LOBSTER NOODLES

Take a break from all the heavy flavours with a bowl of Claypot Lobster Noodles. Similar to prawn noodles soup, the broth has been boiled for hours with lean pork bones that made it all the more delicious. Of course, the addition of fresh lobsters is the icing on the cake for us.

PARKROYAL Kitchener Lobster Tortilla

LOBSTER TORTILLA WITH MANGO, TOMATO SALSA

Do not underestimate this simple-looking dish, for it comes with a multitude of flavours enveloped in a tortilla wrap. The combination of sweet lobster meat, fresh lettuce, minced mushrooms, premium Monterey Jack cheese and tangy salsa turned out to be a mouthwatering blend of sweet and salty notes.

PARKROYAL Kitchener Pumpkin Crab

PUMPKIN CRAB IN CLAYPOT

We are thrilled to see the Pumpkin Crab in Claypot making a return from the previous buffet lineup, and its constant popularity should tell you this is one stellar creation by Chef Low.

The soft and tender crab meat is paired with a delectable rich sauce made of pumpkin, curry leaves, curry powder and chilli padi. This is also prepared a la minute at the live station, so be assured that you will only be served freshly cooked crabs with bubbling hot sauce.
