Hotel Jen Tanglin Singapore’s gorgeous all-day dining restaurant J65 is an ultimate gourmet paradise if you are keen on mainly local fare. Its wholesome Sunday Champagne brunch has left an impeccable impression and we are now equally enthralled by their latest launch of regional hawker-themed dinner buffets.
J65 is fronted by Executive Chef Frederick Kho, a Malaysian native cook who specialises in homestyle Nonya, Peranakan and Straits dishes. Along with his talented kitchen crew, patrons can watch the A-team in action at the spacious open kitchen. Think tantalising local delights such as satays, kong bak pau, homemade popiahs, Penang hokkien mee and the list goes on.
From now till Tuesday, 31 May 2016, quote “ladyironchef” to enjoy a scrumptious dinner buffet at only S$35++* per person (usual price from S$45++ to S$55++). Additionally, for those of you who celebrate your birthday at J65, you will receive a complimentary buffet plus a free three-tier stand of cupcakes and an over-the-top chocolate milkshake. Stop pinching yourself, the deal is real and it is valid from now till the end of 2016.
One of our favourite places to head to for buffets in Singapore is Colony. Located on level three of The Ritz-Carlton, Millenia Singapore, Colony is a well-appointed yet cosy restaurant offering the best of Singapore’s heritage cuisines. A dinner at Colony never disappoints.
We returned this week for Colony’s monthly “Farm To Fork” special, where monthly-exclusive dishes that are sustainable sourced, are brought right to your dining table. This promotion happens from now till June 2016.
In the month of March 2016, the featured sustainably farmed produce is the finest Irish beef by John Stone. This means that you can have free-flow quality beef steaks on top of the regular buffet spread. This is completely a steal!
And that’s not all. Quote “ladyironchef” when you make your reservation to receive a complimentary bottle of house wine for a minimum booking of 4 persons for the “Farm to Fork” promotion at Colony from Sundays to Thursdays between 21 March to 28 April 2016.
The Ritz-Carlton, Millenia Singapore has unveiled an exciting new dining concept – Colony – that will excite all epicurean foodies alike.

The eight different conservatory kitchens take centre stage at the buffet, giving it a very theatrical effect; diners can watch their food being prepared freshly in front of them and each ‘live’ station showcases one of the many different ethnic cuisines that has shaped Singapore over the past decades.
The laksa with homemade lobster balls are to die for, and we had endless helpings of the crepe suzettes. Behold, the 10 highlights of our experience at Colony.
