The Place Decked in bright colours, The Line at Shangri-La Hotel Singapore has been serving one of the most extensive buffet spread since. Off Orchard Road, the walk from the Orchard MRT may take you a good 10-15mins, just right to make you feel all-hungry as you prepare to queue up in line at The Line!
The Line is part of our list of 8 Sunday Brunch Buffets in Singapore you should not miss.
The Food Be awed. The selections at The Line will definitely excite any buffet-goers. With a sumptuous spread catering to meat lovers and one that is bound to satiate your seafood craving, there are also the cheese, foie gras, local Singaporean delights, Indian fare, and the list goes on. The Line’s new Chef de Cuisine, Vincent Wong, recently revamped its Sunday Champagne Brunch buffet, and rejuvenated the experience altogether.
My favourite station was undoubtedly the carving station with 6 types of roast meats to choose from. With cuts such as the 48-hour Slow Roasted Wagyu Beef Leg with a Mustard Crust, the Australian Stockyard Tomahawk Steak, a 200-Day Grain fed Australian Stockyard Roasted Beef Striploin with Truffle Jus and well, you get the idea! Will recommend you to go for these meats in moderation and get a slice of each of the meats on display before picking your favourite for a second portion – and my favourite for the day? The Roasted Beef Striploin!
Another not to be missed counter was the Japanese booth. Skip the sashimi here, while they are good but just not calories worthy as the handmade Makis, or Japanese sushi rolls. Go for the Spicy Lobster Maki and the Salmon Skin Maki, I promise you these are to-die-for!
Right at the far corner, beside the Japanese counter, sits these L-shaped booth any foie gras and cheese lover should never miss. With 10 varieties of foie gras, paired with yuzu, chocolate chips and even figs, you are in for a treat here. The cheese counter presents you an opportunity to sample more than 30 different types of cheese, and I ventured to try at least a dozen of them this time to kickstart my Sunday brunch.
Before I got too filled, I started munching on the pastries and local Singapore kuehs, pairing these off with my favourite hot teh tarik! Sunday was already perfect.
Just make sure in the midst of all these feasting, do spare some thoughts for the bubbles. Free-flow Perrier-Jouet Grand Brut for the Sunday Champagne Brunch ($158++ per pax), to make the weekend even better. If you are not too much of a drinker, join in the feasting at just $108++ per pax.
Rants You either trek here from Orchard MRT, or drive and be charged exorbitantly by the carpark here ($6 for first hour, and $2 for every subsequent 30mins). Alternatively, arrive in style to Shangri-La on a taxi!
Will I Return Again? A resounding yes. If I am looking to enjoy a buffet feast, The Line will easily emerge as one of my top choices for buffets in Singapore.
