Beef lovers alert! Azur at Crowne Plaza Changi Airport is serving up the Tremendous Black Angus Buffet daily from 6:30pm to 10:30pm for a limited period from 29 March to 6 April, 2014! My choir mates were asking me where my favorite place for steak is, when they nearly flipped upon hearing that I've to fork out two fifty-dollar notes for 100grams of beef there. But now at only $68++ per pax, we get to feast on premium Black Angus imported from US prepared in a variety of style, as well as the finest seafood and a multitude of desserts! Eat all we want! Unlimited! Don't say I never share the good
Angus Beef, Angus Beef, how do I
We started on a light note with the Sesame Black Angus Beef Salad, a delightful medley of thinly-sliced sirloin with refreshing greens, red radish, lotus root and edamame tossed in an aromatic sesame dressing. Pan-seared to medium tenderness and fats meticulously trimmed off to avoid over oiliness, the sirloin tasted clean and healthy. My favorite indulgence of the evening!
Though the Wok Fried Black Angus Short Ribs with Black Pepper was tender and succulent to bite, its flavors were somewhat muted. A more full-bodied peppery kick would have heighten the level of enjoyment. Faring better is the Braised Beef Cheek with Root Vegetables such as baby carrot, turnip, parsnip and celeriac which literally spelled of comfort food with its melt-in-the-mouth tenderness and delish gravy.
Another dish which had pleased the carnivore in me was the Grilled Black Angus Beef Steak with Forest Mushroom Ragout. Nothing fancy, just pieces of simply grilled steak paired with beautiful earthly flavors of portobello, champignon and trumpet mushrooms, yet totally satiated my primal cravings. I can already imagine a queue forming at the buffet chafer for this!
It would be advisable to come with an empty stomach and indulge in all that the buffet spread has to offer. Other than the Angus beef, fresh seafood on ice such as this Alaskan Snow Crab Leg is a delicacy you would not wanna missed. I also have to make a mention of the Poached Tiger Prawns, Dutch Black Mussels, Half Shell Scallops and the plump Freshly Shucked House Oysters. Haha, are you salivating yet? :p
For you who needs to have an intake of carbs, Truffle Gnocchi with Parmesan Cheese, a potato pasta dish tossed in black truffle paste sauce and topped with shaved parmesan cheese is a decent choice, but tends to get monotonous after awhile. My preference went to the cheerful-looking pot of Paella with Mussels, Prawns and Squids cooked with fluffy short-grain Bahia rice, which tasted as pretty as it looked.
I've to surrender at the many more dishes, but nothing's stopping you from making a go at the charcuterie platter, Spanish chorizo sausage with pickled olives, on top of the array of appetizers, assortment of artisan cheese and live stations.
Another advice: Do come wearing loose-fitting clothes, you need expansion space to round up the buffet experience with a finale of Mini French Pastries and Chef’s Selection of Desserts.
Last advice: Reservations are highly encouraged to chope chope confirm your seats.
