Seafood lovers, you’re in for a treat! Look forward to Asian Market Cafe’s Seafood Extravaganza promotion which is happening from 16 September to 1 December 2019. During this limited time period, get your tummies filled with the freshest seafood at Asian Market Cafe!

Whether the taste of fresh delicacies of the ocean like Alaskan Crab Legs, Oysters and Prawns or you prefer the allure of cooked seafood (think Chilli Crab and Steamed Barramundi), they’ve got you covered!

At Asian Market Cafe, an array of live stations and DIY dessert stalls are interestingly named after neighbourhoods in Singapore like Joo Chiat, Serangoon, Pasir Panjang and Geylang. Kick start your buffet with an assortment of fresh seafood at Joo Chiat. Here’s where you can get your fill of Steamed Live Prawns, Flower Crabs, Live European Oysters, Poached Green Lip Mussels and more. Not to mention that selected seafood is specially sourced from a local kelong, Ah Hua Kelong, so you know you’re having quality seafood! Don’t forget to add in a little Japanese twist to your meal with their selection of sushi and maki rolls too. 

For those of you looking for something heartier to fill your tummy, go straight to the Serangoon section where you’ll find an extensive variety of local and regional specialties. Watch as the chef at the live station skillfully flips the prata and fry it to perfection. Choose to dip your prata in Signature Fish Head Curry or Indian Keema and savour a delightful medley of spices. 

We’re pretty sure prata alone won’t be enough to satisfy your cravings for local food. Thankfully, this section also offers other appetising dishes like Singapore Chilli Crab, Squid Berlado and Fried Seafood Mee Mamak which will leave you craving for more. In the mood for something different? Try a Filipino dish called Tinolang Manok - this refreshing chicken soup with papaya, fresh spinach in ginger-flavoured broth is a comforting treat. If you’re craving beef instead, their Malaysian Rawon Buntut will be a great choice. Every sip of this rich oxtail beef soup promises a sumptuous mix of flavours. ?

There’s no better way to wind down your time at a buffet than with desserts! With not one but two sections (Pasir Panjang and Geylang) dedicated to desserts, you’ll have a hard time deciding which treats to eat first. We say go for all of them! Get your fix of traditional Malay Kueh like Kueh Lapis, Kueh Salat, Ondeh-Ondeh and more. 

Or indulge in their signature Durian Pengat - a smooth, rich and creamy mix of durian in coconut milk and gula melaka - perfect for your sweet tooth. But if you’re into Western desserts instead, be sure to get a taste of their delectable Chocolate Fudge Cake and Pumpkin Tart. ?
