Straits Kitchen @ Grand Hyatt, Singapore – Asian Buffet

November 14th, 2009 Leave a Comment

The complementary stay at Grand Hyatt entitled us to a early breakfast buffet, from 6.30am to 10.30am, in Straits Kitchen. It wasn’t easy to get up early (around 9.00am) during the weekend.

Straits Kitchen is a Singapore-inspired restaurant known to serve famous local cuisine. One can indulge in an endless parade of local flavors from the halal-certified food like Hainanese Chicken Rice, Singapore Laksa, Carrot Cake, Roti Prata with Chicken Curry and etc.

For my first round, I had Nasi Lemak, which means “rice in cream” in Malay. Its name is derived from the cooking process where the rice is cooked/steamed with coconut milk. Traditional Nasi Lemak is served, with cucumber slices, small dried anchovies (ikan bilis), roasted peanuts, hard boiled egg, and hot spicy sauce (called sambal), on a large piece of banana leaf.

As for my version, I had an extra slice of tomato, fried fish and a piece of fried spicy-marinated chicken. I’ve always like the Nasi Lemak here. The fried fish is always tender and juicy, so as the chicken. With the coconut fragrant rice, I must say that this is one of the best Nasi Lemak in town.

Next, I had freshly fried omelet and a sausage.

Followed by some Chinese cuisine, the carrot cake, fried dumplings, steamed prawn dumplings and two more sausages.

By now, I was already full. So, I went for my last round — porridge. I had bean curd, salted egg, black bean dace and some salted vegs as dishes.

There are several other food which I didn’t manage to try out. However, I love the idea of free-flow fruit juice options made available to diners.
