New Year Eve Dinner at Marriott Cafe and Ushering in 2015!

This post is long overdue (as always)... but anyways here it is. As with tradition (since 2 years ago), we decided to usher in the new year with good food and well, nothing else but food. So what else but a buffet? This time we decided to try something different and decided to try out the buffet at Marriott Cafe.

We had to make reservations and the process was slightly different from the other times: payment had to made first and a form had to filled up (I think). When we arrived a the entrance of Marriott Hotel, it was barricaded and only guests of the hotel were allowed inside. To enter, R had to show the reservation slip before we could enter. It was an interesting experience as we had to register or rather, our reservation had to be counter-checked against the list before we could start our feasting!

Banded, seated and ready to feast! Not to mention a goody bag filled with party stuff to celebrate.

Once our reservation was found, we were banded and brought to our table. And so our feasting begin... The food was one of the freshest that I have eaten so far. There were meat, salad, mussels/oysters/seafood and Japanese stations (sushi and fresh sahshimi!).

One special station at this buffet was the salad and bread stations: there were many varieties of freshly baked bread and salads (with over 15 varieties of salad sauces & over 20 accompanying condiments).

and more bread! There was a lot of variety and the best part was that they were freshly baked too!

Of course, there were also stations that served up piping hot meats (e.g. salmon, lobster, beef, prawns, foie gras etc...), vegetables, pastas and rice too.

Most of the hot foods were covered, so it was a little troublesome to take photos and take the food as the lids have to be removed each and every time.
It was one of the (most) expensive buffets (at S$220 per person!) we have had to date, but for the festive mood and free flow alcohol, I guess it was a good experience.

Free flow alcohol. Service was good: drinks were re-filled without have to ask and plates were cleared promptly too

And how could we miss out the dessert station? There was ice-cream and cakes, creme brulee, tarts and mochi (to name a few). There was even a nice touch of adding 2015 and well wishes into the dessert!
