Rise at Marina Bay Sands, Singapore by Obelix

Whilst in Singapore I stayed at Marina Bay Sands renowned for the highest infinity pool in the world over looking the skyline of Singapore (see below for a pic). But at ground level of this hotel is a very splendidly laid out buffet, Rise.  We went there for dinner on two occasions.  The first one was American themed with a smokey BBQ in the courtyard, apple pie for dessert as well as the usual buffet offerings.  The second occasion was just run of the mill buffet menu.  Run of the mill being defined as a mix of East/West cuisine - curries, roasts, seafood, soups and salads.

The prices were a bit on the ex-y side (S$88 per person on a theme night). Despite the cost, the quality was second to none, especially the oyster bar.  Oh, the oyster bar!  They were the creamiest oysters I have ever eaten.

Cheese and bread station

Also if you are a fan of artisan cheeses and breads like I am, you would not be disappointed with the array of weird and wonderful cheeses and breads to be sampled.  I could have filled up with cheese alone.

And here are more pics of the gorgeous food we ate:

Artisan bread strung up with an assortment of olives and pickles

Lobster Thermidor!

Sushi and sashimi station

American style BBQ - slow cooked ribs, grilled prawns, corn on the cob

Comforting Chinese soup - lotus with pork

Hot food station with roasts and made to order noodles

Dessert station

The view from the infinity pool

Verdict: We loved it

Well worth it for a little treat. The customer service was very convivial and staff stopped to have a chat with us.  Kiddo was offered activity sheets and colouring pencils to keep her occupied.
