Buffet: Edge @ Pan Pacific Hotel

DSC08533
Pan Pacific Hotel has been given a new facelift this year. The pavillion structures at the lobby with surrounding water bodies creates a contemporary and funky vibe. I am very excited to share with you the hotel’s buffet restaurant called Edge, which has a very apt tagline: Food Theatre. Edge takes up a massive floorspace on Level 3, where it can accommodate hundreds of diners and open kitchen for several cuisines. Offering a very wide range of cuisines, food selections and live stations, Edge promises an exceptional buffet experience.

Buffet dinner is priced at $68++/adult, with a Citibank promotion running now till end of June where 1 diner dines free with every 3. This will be a very detailed and long post, so do pardon me. 😛

Wooden sticks labeled with your table number to be given to Chefs at the Live Stations and the food will be subsequently delivered to your table! Saves time queuing/waiting for food, great concept!

Cold Seafood Section: You may want to start off dinner with some seafood like Oysters, Scallops, Prawns and Crab Legs!! The scallops were really huge and the Crab Legs were chunky and sweet! A dash of lemon is all you need.

DIY Salad Section: Impressive spread of condiments and sauces! If you don’t fancy the greens, you can go for the local Rojak too!

Japanese Section: Freshly-cut Sashimi and a selection of sushi!

Live Station: The Grilled Steak was executed very well! The most popular sausage was Garlic Pork, recommended by the Chef and it sure did not disappoint.

Western Section: Comprised of very light and small bites of seafood and poultry, which are great for just tasting.

Live Station: Mushroom Pizza!! The crust was not dry at all! A good dish to share.
DSC09622
Bread Section: I did not waste stomach space on these carbs but I’m sure they taste as good as they look!
DSC09623DSC09661
Live Station: Risotto, served plain with beef stock or carbonara with bacon [pictured]. A good substitute for the usual pasta! The risotto rice was chewy and very flavourful, without being too rich.

Chinese Section: Chilli Crayfish and Black Pepper Crab with Mantou were the most popular dishes here! Photo evidence shows that the crayfishes were plump and meaty! I couldn’t help but take 5 crayfish sides. 😛 On the other hand, the black pepper sauce for the crabs was too heavy for my liking.

Chinese Section: Lots of local dishes available for your pick! I will agree with them and say that Laska is a must-try! Tip to save stomach space: ask the Chef to add a Wanton in your Laska!

Chinese Section/Live Station: Ngo Hiang which I did not fancy, so don’t bother.

Indian Section: I love Naans but the ones they had were too dense for me. They tasted really well with my Laska sauce though!

Malay Section + Satays grilled on the spot!! Loved their chicken satays!!
DSC09639
Thai Section: This section was surprisingly extensive, with various Thai salads including Pomelo, Papaya and Mango Salads. There was a Live Station for Tom Yum Soup too!

Dessert Section: I went gaga at the dessert area as they seemed to have an endless selection of desserts! Perfect for the those with a sweet-tooth!

Dessert Section: I was so happy that they serve the Strawberry Shortcake [middle] from their deli shop, Pacific Market! Next to it is a bowl of homemade Tiramisu. Absolutely delectable.

Dessert Section: Chocolate Fondue and a selection of Chocolate Truffles!
DSC09646
Dessert Section: Baked pastries on the right, including a very nutty tart, which my mum ate in delight. Homemade ice cream on the left with lots of toppings!!! They stock really interesting flavours like Chilli Chocolate and Plum but I chose the safer ones: Mint with Chocolate Shavings and Blueberry Cheesecake.
DSC09648
Dessert Section/Live Station: Crepe and Waffles with lots of toppings again! It’s a pity that the waffles were made beforehand and placed on the serving plate as they would have tasted better when made upon order!

Diners can choose from a selection of teas and coffees and have them brought to your table. There are juices available as well. I say drink some Lime Juice and digest your food midway through your meal and wash everything down with a pot of Osmanthus Sencha at the end!

I was in awe when I walked my rounds while deciding which cuisine to start with. Overall, I was very happy with my dinner buffet at Edge and the service was immaculate! I had asked for a bowl of lemon water to soak off the pepper from my hands and the staff came back with extra wet towels for my convenience. How thoughtful! I daresay that Edge is one of the best buffet restaurants in town. Definitely coming back here again after I’ve lost the 2KG gained after this meal! 😛

    Hi. May I know the choices for muslim diners at The Edge? And also do they provide halal cutlery for corporate events? Thanks.

    1. foodiepink says:

      Hi Rahim, I am not too sure whether The Edge is Halal, however, I do know that Aquamarine @ Marina Mandarin Hotel is Halal. Kindly check with the respective hotels to confirm. Thanks.
