Equinox Restaurant at SWISSÔTEL The Stamford (Semi-Buffet Lunch)

ABBEY: This is where we celebrated my 33rd birthday. 

Equinox is located at the 70th storey of Swissotel (City Hall MRT). They have their own lift to carry their guest to the top. We had lunch there and it is a semi-buffet. 

I went for sushi and sashimi on my first round. Then I was surprised by the beef chunks when I'm helping myself in a serving of beef soup. The beef is so soft that it melts in your mouth. No chewing needed :) I think I had 3 bowls of them. 

Then I tried their crackers and cheese. For the main course (one time only as well as the coffee) I had slow-roasted pork belly. It is delicious. I enjoyed putting some Truffle and Cauliflower Emulsion sauce before having a bite. 

We were given a table with the view of Marina Bay. But it was cloudy and foggy as it is raining during that time. 

The staffs were polite and warm. They also gave me a cake for my birthday.

WILL: I gave three options to the birthday boy, three restaurants that not only will give him a good food but also a good view. Then he chose Equinox Restaurant of Swissotel. 

Why he went for that? Because it is semi-buffet and all the other are offering only a set meal. So what is semi buffet? This will be our first time to experience  this. Haha, so this explanation is not only for you but for me too (to inculcate this new knowledge on my brain), semi buffet offers an eat-all-you-can appetiser and desserts. The drinks and main course is limited in one serving. You can order more on menu, well of course with additional payment. 

What strikes me the most in this 70th floor restaurant in Swissotel? Beside of the outstanding view by the window, their sushi and their loveable cauliflower soup keeps me coming back for MORE! 

I did not enjoy my main course, Baked Norwegian Salmon, its is pretty bland and it needed a help of pepper and salt to somewhat gave some flavour. 

I am not fond of the selection of their pastries. But I like the fact that they surprise my husband with complimentary cake with my special dedication on it. 

Is it worth the money? The view plus the well-mannered staffs plus the sushi ... hit the value of the money we had paid for. 

One of the best place to propose! High up in Singapore Sky. :)
