Himawari Japanese Restaurant (Alexandra Road)

Orgasmic Spider Maki (soft shell crab).

When it comes to Japanese food, I’m not one to go big on buffets.

Being a Singaporean, for obvious reasons, buffets are meant to be really worth it — yet not so much for me, as my tummy has the unfortunate chronic inability to stomach more than say, eight plates of sushi. It’s just sad.

Despite passing up on buffets in general, I do make special exceptions. At the Himawari Japanese Restaurant is probably one of the rare places you’d actually find me shoving food down my throat in a less-than-fashionable manner (simply because the food is too good I could do with taking in two portions at once with no care for civility).

“Too good to be true” would be a sore understatement.

The Line Buffet, Shangri-La Hotel Singapore

Endless salad spread.

One will be easily spoiled for choice at The Line. Serving up a wide array of international cuisines, The Line could not better represent the diverse flavours you can find in little cosmopolitan Singapore — and all made with choice ingredients.

I had the pleasure of partaking in the buffet feast last Saturday, as part of a committee treat for some Hall committee I was involved in the past year. And, I must say that food is an excellent way to express appreciation (aha! the glutton in me speaks again).

Tried as I may, I was struggling to have a taste of everything available. But, alas, it was impossible. In the end, in the battle of (wo)man vs. food, food won this time!
