ATRIUM RESTAURANT’S SIGNATURE DISHES
HAINANESE CHICKEN RICE
Enjoy a well-prepared serving of authentic Hainanese Chicken Rice right before your eyes. Choose from the steamed or roasted chicken, which will be chopped on-the-spot, based on your preference. You can then add the respective condiments that you desire like the dark soya sauce or spicy garlic chilli.
“It doesn’t matter if you’re black or white” – fried carrot cake is always good! Loved by locals and Singapore’s visitors, carrot cake is one local food that’s super hard to hate. Atrium Restaurant dishes up this Singaporean classic straight from the wok and into your plates. We loved how this timeless dish was both sweet-and-savoury – we really couldn’t keep our forks off of it!
ROTI PRATA & CURRY
Known for their much raved about Indian dishes and curries, the Roti Prata Live Station at Atrium Restaurant serves freshly-made roti pratas that are paired with a serving of spicy curry.
The prata soaks up the curry so deliciously and a kick of spice really ties everything together.
Carved specially for diners at a live rotisserie is Atrium Restaurant’s Chicken Shawarma. Marinated with a blend of aromatic spices, the chicken is cooked to perfection – tender, succulent and oh-so flavourful. Dip these cuts of roasted meat in a tangy yoghurt sauce to enjoy this dish fully.
Singapore is known for its street food and Satay is definitely one of the most popular and well-known dishes everyone far and wide should try when visiting our sunny island. You can get freshly-grilled chicken and lamb Satay, basted with lemongrass and accompanied by a spicy peanut gravy.
Silky rice noodles, beancurd, egg and seafood are drenched in a thick and creamy spicy broth in Atrium Restaurant’s DIY-Laksa live station. Choose from a variety of toppings to put in your own perfect bowl of laksa. It’s one of Singapore’s most comforting bowls of noodles – you’ll be instantly hooked with this rendition.
OTHER HIGHLIGHTS OF THIS HALAL-CERTIFIED BUFFET
Let’s not forget the most iconic Singaporean dish – The Chilli Crab. Succulent crab is cooked in spicy-sweet chilli gravy, laced with a slurry of silky egg. A bite of sweet crab meat paired with this delectable rendition of chilli crab sauce is simply to-die-for!
Pair it with deep-fried mantou and you’ll then truly taste why Chilli Crab is one of Singapore’s most famous specialities.
Other than Laksa, you can also customise your own Mee Siam. Add some bean sprouts, beancurd and egg to complete this local classic.
GADO GADO & POPIAH
Adding on to the several live stations Atrium Restaurant has to offer, skilled chefs will help you assemble your perfect roll of popiah as well as your very own plate of Gado Gado, an Indonesian classic. Choose from a spectrum of fresh vegetables and toppings and the chefs will gladly whip up a plate that is sure to bring a smile to your face.
SEAFOOD ON ICE
Atrium Restaurant’s Seafood on Ice features prawns, flower clams, fresh scallops and black mussels. Accompanying the seafood are a selection of curated sauces including Tabasco and Sesame sauce. Pair it with a spritz of lemon and you’re good to go!
WHOLE BAKED FISH WITH 6 DIFFERENT SAMBALS
Another one of Atrium Restaurant’s most popular live stations would be their Whole Baked Fish. The succulent fish can be paired with any of the 6 varieties of sambal sauce – Sambal Terasi (Indonesian Sambal with Shrimp Paste), Nonya Sambal Belacan, Sambal Ikan Bilis, Sweet Chilli Sambal, Sambal Tumis (Stir-fried Chilli Paste) and Garlic Chilli Sauce (Chicken Rice Chilli).
Our favourite of the bunch was the Sambal Tumis as it had a nice tangy yet spicy kick which complemented the baked fish super well. A close second was the Nonya Sambal Belacan with its umami-bomb flavour!
JAPANESE SUSHI & SMOKED FISH
The sushi selections vary from salmon, California rolls, scallops and ebi prawn sushi. You can also get smoked fish to go along with the sushi selections.
There are popular dishes from Chinese cuisine such as Yong Tau Foo with Hot Bean Sauce and Wok Fried Chicken with Shredded Bell Peppers. The two dishes that caught our fancy the most were the Wintermelon with Chicken Soup and the Braised Ee Fu Noodles.
The soup was so flavourful despite its simple appearance, having a complex mix of sweetness and a nice savoury chicken flavour. Like most Chinese soups, this was a hearty bowl that kept us going back for more. The Ee Fu noodles were super “QQ” and also packed with a lot of hearty ingredients and flavour from being stir-fried.
Other than just Asian cuisines, there are also dishes from Western origins such as a super delectable Chicken Stew and Pan-Fried Fish with Orange Sauce.
We loved how tender and juicy the chicken was after being stewed for hours. The stew itself was bursting with flavour and every ingredient was mouthwateringly delicious after being simmered in the thick gravy.
DIY ICE KACANG STATION
Of course, every buffet will be judged by its dessert spread as well and Atrium Restaurant will not disappoint with its revamped lineup of sweet treats. One particular live station will keep local-cuisine lovers on their toes – the DIY Ice Kacang Station!
Grab some shaved ice, sweet syrups, red beans, jellies and corn – you’ve got yourself an amazing local dessert.
ICONIC ICE CREAM SANDWICH
If you’re feeling nostalgic, head on over to Atrium Restaurant’s very own Ice Cream Bicycle where a chef will slice up some ice cream with some rainbow bread or wafers – just like the good ol’ days! Choose from chocolate, vanilla or even durian ice cream to go with your choice of “wrap”.
Durian-lovers rejoice! Atrium Restaurant’s Durian Penget is something everyone can look forward to. What’s not to love about a creamy, luscious mash of sweet durian pudding? The answer has to be “nothing”.
This creamy dessert is definitely one of the more sinful dessert options, but you’re already at a buffet so just indulge to your hearts’ content while you’re here!
