Parkroyal on Pickering,
3 Upper Pickering Street, S(058289) TEL: 6809 8899 An international buffet is the star attraction here, with lobster Hokkien noodles a firm favourite, keeping chefs at the live station constantly busy preparing the yellow noodles with delicately sweet and easily managed crustacean meat. Try the tender, spicy beef rendang paired with fragrantly rich nasi minyak. Other favoured items include slow-roasted beef sirloin, kueh pie tee and salmon fillet with tangy citrus sauce. The desserts are always popular, especially the creamy strawberry cheesecake. From the à la carte menu, the aromatic prawn noodle soup with rich stock and succulent king prawns is recommended. The wine list covers a fair geographical range. Staff do their best in this busy restaurant, which serves as a haven from the city’s hustle and bustle with its soothing water features, greenery and high ceilings. One is transported to the comfort of nature by the creative décor, which encompasses paddy fields, waterfalls, verdant moss and a bridge, and features the use of wood, marble, glass, mirrors and stainless steel.
