SIN: Caprilicious

That rare moment I decided to have durian mousse~

I have about a month to write on the local food scene before I go for my next trip to exciting destinations. I hardly eat buffet lunch or dinner these days, but recently I did with some friends at Caprilicious owned by a hotel named Capri by Fraser near Expo MRT station.


Lunch buffet is served from 12 noon to 2.30pm daily. It costs S$30.80 on weekdays and S$38.80 on weekends per adult.


Seafood Items

I started the lunch by attacking the seafood items. They were of acceptable freshness. What I particularly enjoyed was the prawn as it was naturally sweet, so that was the only thing I took more from the cold section.


Chicken and Beef Satays

The satays weren't bad, but not fantastic either. I had a preference for the somewhat succulent chicken satays to the beef satays as a few of the meat chunks were a tad tough. The peanut sauce was a bit chunky and not too sweet.


Assorted Stuff #1

The beef salad was quite satisfying, while the chicken variant was a tad dry. On the other hand, the Greek salad was a tad too wet and it didn't come with olives. The otah (Peranakan fish cake) was good, while the Japanese omelette was so-so.


Assorted Stuff #2

The vegetarian linguine that came with mushrooms and bell peppers was the best item on that plate, followed by the waffle fries that were pretty crispy. I felt that the beans and meat dishes could use more seasonings.


Assorted Stuff #3

The Asian cooked dishes were passable, save for the deep-fried chicken wings. The stir-fried udon (Japanese wheat-flour noodle) was too oily for my liking. The fried rice was a tad better, but not as flavourful.


Assorted Stuff #4

Most of the sweet stuff were average. I was hoping that the onde-onde, glutinous rice cake filled with gula melaka (Malay brown sugar) coated with shredded coconuts, would be bursting in the mouth, but apparently the filling wasn't entirely liquid. I rarely touch durian, but I thought the mousse prepared with coconut milk and sugar was decent.


Fruits

The watermelon cubes were really sweet, but the same couldn't be said for their cantaloupe and honeydew counterparts.


Cappuccino

The only beverage that I treated myself to was a cup of hot cappuccino from the coffee machine. It was adequately smooth and frothy, but could be stronger.

Melon's Rating
Taste: 7/10
Ambience: 7/10
Overall: 7/10

The dining area is spacious, so you won't feel crammed even when there are lots of guests around. Pika's advice: I'm not doing advertising, but Caprilicious is on Eatigo, a restaurant reservation app. That's why my friend could get us a discounted price for the buffet.
