Serving up a National Obsession: StraitsKitchen

What better way to show off Singapore to visitors than with food? Instead of just sticking to Newton Circus, try these eateries too, where great cuisine and sights are served.

Hungry while sightseeing away in the heart of Singapore’s shopping belt? Head down to the Grand Hyatt Singapore, where its lively buffet restaurant, StraitsKitchen, serves up a sumptuous spread of more than 60 lip-smacking dishes. These include perennial hawker favourites such as satay, rojak, popiah, char kway teow, fried carrot cake, laksa and roti prata, to tasty treats like roast duck, sambal stingray, tandoori chicken and prawns masala. The dessert section is well-stocked with colourful nyonya kueh, ice kacang, mango pudding, Chinese snacks and traditional biscuits. Designed with show-kitchens, this plush halal-certified restaurant allows diners to gawk (and pick up some culinary tips) while eating. As far as popular, valuefor- money buffets go, StraitsKitchen is it. International celebrity chef Anthony Bourdain makes it a point to eat here whenever he visits. It’s no wonder the place is often packed with very eager and hungry Singaporeans, families and business groups. Do come early to enjoy as much of the spread as you possibly can because, with the number of mouthwatering dishes, it’s literally so much food, so little time!
