What’s Buzzing? One-Ninety Restaurant at Four Seasons Hotel Singapore has recently revamped its semi-buffet menu, where each diner gets to choose from 30 entrées selections from three broad categories – Italian, Apple-Wood Grill and Asian Specialties.
The Highlights The Italian selections highlights include the Mediterranean Octopus, grilled over apple-wood fire to tender texture. Alternatively, the Ligurian Fillet of Sea Bass is another favourite amongst Italians.
From the Apple-Wood Grill, we love the Australian Black Angus (200-day grain-fed tenderloin 200g) which is very succulent and tasty despite being the leanest cut.
A big surprise for us was the quality of the Asian food at One-Ninety. The One-Ninety Laksa is a luxe version of our familiar hawker dish but topped with premium ingredients such as live prawns, scallops, cockles and quail eggs. The broth is rich and thick, and it rivals that of some of the good ones we have ever had.
The Cantonese style Hor Fun is another pleasant surprise, which is also deemed as the Celebrity Dish at One-Ninety. The wok-hei flavour was strong, and the huge portion is good for sharing.
For Indian cuisine, the Murgh Makhani Butter Chicken is a hearty dish of boneless cuts of chicken marinated in tandoori paste.
The Buffet Spread We wouldn’t say that the buffet spread is very wide, but it should suffice. The appetisers include ocean-fresh seafood salads with fresh herbs from the Four Seasons herb garden, charcuterie and cold cuts; while the dessert spread include the likes of the signature Mango Cheesecake, Red Velvet and Hazelnut Royaltine.
The semi-buffet aside, a la carte menu is also available at One-Ninety. Breakfast is a mix of classic continental and Asian cuisine, with a live egg station and fresh juice station; while Sunday Lunch includes free-flow champagne and non-alcoholic beverage options.
This was an invited tasting, though all opinions expressed are our own.
