G & J: Having had the original bird’s nest egg tarts in Macau, we would say these tarts can give the original ones a run for their money. It brings out the Macau flavour very well, and not too overly sweet. Crust was also crumbly and savoury.
G: A rare sight at a buffet but it proved to be one of the stars of the night. The addition of the lobster is a big plus. Succulent meat that overshadowed the prawns. The noodles also had the right authentic wok taste, and was perfectly starchy. For the oyster omelette, there was too much starch though, and not enough egg.
J: Lobster meat was solid and juicy. Don’t expect the hokkien mee to be as flavourful as the ones at your favourite hawker, but start drooling for the boston lobster.
J: Self-made laksa booth allowed me to be my own cook without the hassle. The variety of ingredients was something I liked, as I could choose to add more of the ingredients I liked while also having the option to leave out those I didn’t like. Laksa tasted pretty legit, definitely above average.
G & J: Häagan-Dazs Belgium Chocolate ice cream with chocolate lava cake hit jackpot. The flowy chocolate from the lava cake and the wholesome thick ice cream was a match made in heaven. A true after-dinner indulgence. The other desserts were not that spectacular.
Update: Read all about Sakura’s first-ever Seafood-in-a-Bucket offering as part of their menu, at their newly revamped outlet at Clementi Woods.
Overall, a good place to try with family and friends. Prices are reasonable too, and please go with an empty stomach because they offer variety and quite a few must-try dishes. Go during dinner is best, because for lunch they do not offer the lobster!
