If you realised, I've stopped buffet-hopping for a while now partly because I've sort of run out of buffets that I'm dying to try and also because we need to book way in advance for popular buffet places and I'm not sure if I can commit to the reservations that I will be making so I generally stay away from buffets for now.
However, we had to make an exception sometime last month because we were FAMISHED by lunch time and we desperately needed to be fed! I had wanted to lunch at Sizzler's (because they have an incredible salad bar in my opinion) but the branch at Suntec closed down and I was way too lazy to search for another Sizzler's outlet then so the next best lunch place popped into mind: Earle Swensen's! (:
It seemed like a perfect idea to visit Earle Swensen's then because it had a salad bar which means that we could start eating the moment we finished placing our orders! Oh my I do sound like a glutton now but trust me, we were REALLY hungry! haha
Thankfully, luck was on our side that day because the salad bar was stocked with yummy dishes! Unlike the predictable dishes at Sizzler's salad bar, Earle Swensen's changes by the day and sometimes if you are unlucky, you might visit Earle's on the day where the salad dishes aren't appealing to you at all. We helped ourselves to many plates of salad dishes but stopped taking photos after the first few plates because the items became repetitive.. so here are some of the items on offer that day:
For the uninitiated, you are entitled "free-flow salad bar" if you order one of their main dishes but you can also order "salad bar" ala carte if you are feeling just peckish and don't wish to have a main. However, as all pricing schemes go, the "set meal" aka mains + salad bar prices are always more enticing and more 'worth it' than the salad bar ala carte so you tend to go for the set meal.
Fish & Chips ($18.90), which is never a wrong option at Earle Swensen's! I think it is one of the safest and most affordable dish one can have (: I adore the fries!
Cajun Salmon ($26.90), which for some strange reason seems to be my 'default' dish at this place because I almost always end up choosing this. Hmmm. Perhaps it's the combination of different textures on the plate that appeals to me or that it is, relatively speaking, more colourful than its fish&chips counterpart? Whatever the reason, I think this dish is great! I would recommend it if you like salmon (:
We must have had too many plates of salad because we were too stuffed for desserts and had to give that a miss! Oh welly. Perhaps next time! Alright that's all for now (: It's late and it's time for bed! Goodnight!
P.S. You can add me on instagram if you want to look at some photos taken using my hp! (: You can find me @janlimmy. Goodnight again! (:
