Colony at The Ritz-Carlton, Millenia Singapore - Valentine's Day Dinner Special

ABBEY: It is ok to splurge on something fancy from time to time. So I booked a reservation for me and Wilma to attend Colony Valentine's Day Dinner at Ritz-Carlton Millenia. 

It is an international buffet compose of Western, Japanese, Chinese, Indian and local cuisines. Couples were able to strike a pose on the photo booth and created personal love notes for their loved ones.  Each lady received a big bulb of red rose and the pair enjoy a glass of Moët & Chandon Grand Vintage Rosé 2006. 

This gave the ordinary buffet a romantic feel. I had sushi and slices of salmon. 

Then I also tasted tomahawk beef (soft and tender), chicken and mutton satay (their mutton satay meat is very soft). For Indian food, I indulged in butter chicken, papaddum, briyani rice and chicken tandoor. 

I also had a plate of red sauce pasta and dumplings. 

The dinner started at 7PM and lasted for 3.5 hours. Prepayment of 108SGD per adult is required. Great food and service. Thanks Ritz-Carlton and Colony.





WILL: Since January, Abbey is agitated where we will celebrate the 14th of Feb. He wants to surprise me, he wants to book a hotel BUT my work leaves won't permit that plan. So, it ended up for us to have a dinner. 

This make him spend, big time! Gosh! I know how much but he always shush me whenever I want to hold this case. He always assures, that it is in his budget. Okay then. What can I do if it is already paid. Yep! In Colony you need to pay upon reservation. 

So, I wonder why they hike up their dinner buffet price. There is a photo booth, a DIY card corner, 2 glass of champagne and a long-stem red rose. 

The food? What hits me most? Their cotton candy (delivered to my table), the laksa, of course their sashimi, shelled crab, and their dessert. Forget the cakes, I indulge on their ----. We asked kept in looking for roasted pork and cannot find it, luckily one of the Colony people gave us a plate of sliced pork that is somewhat near to it. 

This is the only buffet that I didn't take tea. Oh! Thanks for guava and jackfruit. It is lovely to see those, actually it is unusual for buffets. 

Am I coming back? Do not get me wrong, I enjoyed pigging out in Colony but I will not be coming back. Anyways, kudos to all the kind very patient staffs! :)
