In a city with plentiful hotel buffet options, how can one stand out from the rest? The new Kerry Hotel’s been energetically promoting its offerings, from the brunch buffet to afternoon tea, and their latest promotion is the “Keep Clam and Shuk It” BBQ seafood market that’s part of the dinner buffet at Big Bay Café.
Guests have access to the regular buffet here (worth trying alone for its amazing dessert spread, from homemade chocolate slabs, to liquid-nitrogen ice cream, to a patisserie-worthy glass case of cake options), but they also have the option of cooked-to-order seafood dishes brought to their table.
Think of the traditional outdoor seafood markets popular all over Asia. Big Bay Café has an outdoor terrace where guests can choose fresh seafood from live tanks before passing it to the chefs for grilling or frying. Items include scallops, squid, prawns, fish fillets (from salmon to sea bream), razor clams and Boston lobster.
Like many Shangri-La outlets, much of the food has a Southeast Asia–inspired twist. This includes the sauce options for the seafood, such as sambal and peanut-sambal sauces (neither are overly spicy), in addition to more traditional choices like herb and garlic butter, black pepper and spring onion and ginger.
The BBQ seafood market promotion is available until 15 April 2018 from 6–10:30pm daily and is priced at $628 for adults from Monday–Thursday and $668 from Friday–Sunday. Children aged 7–11 years pay $314 during the week and $334 from Friday–Sunday. Add on drinks for $200 to include wine, sparkling wine, beer, soft drinks and juices or $300 to add Veuve-Clicquot champagne into the mix.
