Straits Kitchen – Halal Southeast Asian Buffet

Straits Kitchen - Restaurant Front

Unlike Greenhouse which serves international buffet, the Straits Kitchen specializes in Southeast Asian cuisine. You will find all your favorite Singapore dishes, all in one place.

The Straits Kitchen is halal-certified, which explains why it is so popular with Muslim families and companies with Muslim staff.

Lunch Buffet: Adult S$62++, Child S$32++

Straits Kitchen – The Food

You can find the full lunch/dinner buffet here while I give you a virtual guide below.

Straits Kitchen - Popiah

Straits Kitchen - Chilled Tiger Prawn

I only Popiah and Chill Tiger Prawn at the appetiser section. The chef at the live Popiah station makes a pretty good popiah. Besides the Popiah station is a huge tray of ice with a single miserable basket of Chilled Tiger Prawns.

Straits Kitchen - Malay

At the Malay station, I had Nasi Puteh (Steamed Organic Jasmine Rice) with Ayam Buah Keluak (Chicken in lack Nut Gravy) and Rendang Daging (Australian Beef in Coconut Cream).

Straits Kitchen - BBQ

You have a choice of Chicken, Mutton or Beef Satay at the BBQ station. A took a few of each, along with chopped onion, rice cakes and peanut sauce. The satays are a little dry but the creamy peanut sauce gives it some much-needed moisture. Otah-Otah is soft and tender with just the right amount of spices.

Straits Kitchen - Chinese Cooked Dishes

I pretty much liked every dish from the Chinese section – Carrot Cake, Char Kway Teow, Braised Chicken with Mushroom and Vegetables, Wok-Fried Tiger Prawn and Steamed Snapper with Black Bean Sauce. All the Chinese stir-fries are flavourful and delicious.

Straits Kitchen - Roasted Meat

The Roasted Duck and Chicken Rice at the Chinese BBQ station were not the best I have had, but overall quite alright.

Straits Kitchen - Noodles

At the Noodles live station, there are Laksa, Prawn Noodles and Chicken Noodles. You can customise everything from the noodles, broth, meat to the vegetable used. I got a bowl of Prawn Noodles with yellow noodles and bean sprouts. The prawn broth is thick and pungent, it was a very enjoyable bowl of Prawn Noodles.

Straits Kitchen - Indian

I can’t really take spicy food so I am not particularly fond of Indian food. I got some Tandoori Gosht Kebab and Tandoori Gobi with a few pieces of Garlic Naan (choice of Plain or Garlic Naan).

Straits Kitchen - Kueh Lapis Legit

Straits Kitchen - Old Fashioned Snacks

Straits Kitchen - Cold Desserts

My favourite at the Desserts are Kuah Lapis Legit, Mango Pudding in Coconut Milk and Pandan Kaya Cake. The coconut milk further enhances the creaminess of the mango pudding. There are also jar containing sweets from my childhood such as Iced Gem Biscuit and Kuih Piring Ranggup.

There are Coconut or Chocolate Ice Cream, as well as local seasonal fruits.
