Edge at Pan pacific Singapore has acclaimed many awards and accolades such as Wine & Dine Singapore’s Top Restaurants 2015, Best Buffet, 2014 RAS Epicurean Star Awards “Best Buffet”, Fortune Times “Best Buffet” and many others, testimony of the international buffet’s prestige as one of Singapore’s best buffets.
Edge boasts seven live theatres showcasing Singaporean, Chinese, Malay, Indian, Thai, Japanese and Pan Pacific’s signature “Pacific Cuisine”, but you will realize that there are way more than 7 stations because there are many stations within the stations.
Let’s explore the wonderful world of Edge!
The standard buffet includes free-flow coffee and tea and soft drinks. Fresh fruit juice and wines are available at extra charge.
Let’s start with the Appetizers. There is a Salad Station where you can assemble your own salad with fresh vegetables and tantalizing sauces. There are also ready-to-eat salads available such as Smoked Salmon and Crab Meat Salad.
Start your meal with some freshly-baked breads from the Bread Station and 7 different cheeses from the classic cheddar to cottage cheese, displayed beautifully at the Cheese Station.
Here, we have the Roasted Meats Station or Cooked Food Station. To bring some festive cheer to the buffet, there is a special Christmas Carving of Roasted Turkey Breast and Juniper Ham. You have to try the Oxtail Stew which is fall-off-the-bone soft.
Edge is famous for their sausages, displayed with crushed ice at the Grilled Meats Station together with lamb, beef and chicken. Emmanteal Cheese is nice with pockets of creamy cheese but the Marinated Lamb was a little over-cooked.
Malay Station is filled with traditional Malay dishes such as Curry Ayam and Beef Rendang. At the Indian Station, there are classic dishes such as Chettinad Prawn Masala and the lip-smacking satays. The satays are really tasty, the beef and mutton satays are especially good.
Pasta Station offers cooked-on-the-spot pasta dishes. You can choose from a selection of 4 pastas: Spaghetti, Penne, Capellini, Fettucini and sauces include Aglio Olio, Carbonara, Brown Sauce with Turkey Meat and Tomato Herb Sauce.
Seafood Station offers crayfish, Alaska King Crab, giant scallops, clams, huge prawns and freshly-shucked oysters.
No buffet is complete with sushi and fresh sashimi from the Sushi & Sashimi Station. Edge completes the Japanese experience with hot Japanese dishes such as Pork Katsu and Japanese Chicken Curry. I remembered that I even spied a small Soba/Udon Station tucked in a corner.
Not only can you order a bowl of steaming Laksa from the Chinese Noodles Station, you can also order roast chicken/roast duck/roast pig at the Chinese Roased Meats Station. There is even a Tze Char Stir Fried Station where you can order stir fried dishes with Garlic Oyster/Black Pepper/Salt and Pepper sauces.
Edge’s Dessert Station is a sight to behold. It is actually a combination of Cake Station, Paranakan Kuey Station and Pancake and Waffle Station. Durian Pengat comes in small glass vials and they smell heavenly.
Fruits Stations offers cut fruits such as papaya, rock melon, watermelon, orange and apples.
Even if you take only a small bite of everything, it is simply impossible to sample everything in one sitting. It is a feast for the eyes as much as the mouth and stomach. If you can only go to one buffet, this is it.
