This Ramadan, they are having an Iftar Special and the good news is, it’s one of the most affordable buffets (from just $35!) you can find in the heart of Singapore. Don’t be fooled by its cost though as it still serves a wide variety of international cuisines from Asian and Western to Mediterranean and Indian. One of the highlights of their buffet is this Sup Tulang (mutton bone soup), which has a thick and flavourful broth. The blend of spices in this dish is just enough for you to enjoy it without being too overwhelmed.
