I love buffets and since Chinese New Year is around the corner, I’m checking out buffet catering options via FoodLine’s ‘Chinese New Year Catering 2018‘ list. I don’t think we’ll do anything lavish, so our ‘party’ will involve a maximum of 30 people. I’ve narrowed down some options for caterers found on FoodLine.sg, which is probably Singapore’s #1 catering portal. I have to say that there are so many caterers to choose from that it’s mind-boggling. To add to everything that’s going on on that busy site, there’s Xiang Yun in the bottom left-hand corner! 😀 So read on for my top 8 picks for Chinese New Year buffet caterers offering buffets under S$18 per pax. Why 8? Because it’s 2018 and ‘8’ is a terribly auspicious number! 😛
In no particular order of awesomeness since I’ve not tried their offerings before:
They have a ‘Continental Buffet / 招财进宝 (with Yu Sheng)’ for $15.80 /Pax (19 Feb – 02 Mar 18) for a party of at least 30 people. There’s apparently no GST as well.
I like the sound of that ‘Crispy Butter Prawn 香酥牛油虾’, ‘Curry Chicken 咖喱鸡’ (a MUST at any buffet), and ‘Sugarcane Shrimp Roll 蔗虾卷’.
For a minimum of 30 pax, this HALAL buffet would be great if you’re celebrating with Muslim colleagues or neighbors. Everyone can join in for the feast! 😀 It’s $14.77/ pax with GST.
There are items like Shrimp Paste Crispy Chicken (one of the things I love), Stuffed You Tiao w/ Sotong Paste (it’s been a while and I miss you), Thai Cod Fish Tofu w/ Cucumber & Carrot, Sambal Sotong in Banana Leaf, Nonya Chap Chye (OMG I love Nonya Chap Chye!), among others.
This buffet will cost $16.88 /pax (before GST) and is great for small party sizes as they require only a minimum of 15 pax. However, do note that “all buffets of 338 Catering does NOT come with buffet setup”. <- Their words, not mine.
What I would order from them would be the 遍地黃金 麦片奶皇炒大虾碌 Oat Battered Cream Prawn, 喜鹤临门 人参要财參鸡 338 Fortune Herbal Chicken, and 一帆風順 炸面包蟹 Breaded Crab Claw. 😀
For this buffet, it’s $16.80 /pax (before GST) and requires at least 30 pax.
There’s the Oven Baked Cola Drumlet 可乐小鸡腿 (that you see in the image above) that I’d love to try.
Their Happiness Menu A (with Yu Sheng) will cost just $17.98 (w/GST). It’s HALAL!
I also found their menu very similar to Xin Yi Pin’s! So if one’s fully booked on the date you want your buffet, then order from the other caterer! 😀
Yet another HALAL buffet, this one will cost $16.91 per pax (w/GST).
I would definitely order Curry Chicken 咖喱鸡 and Sugarcane Shrimp Roll 蔗虾卷 if I’m hiring this caterer. 😀 Because I love curry chicken… and sugarcane and shrimp. 😀
Their ‘Economy CNY Buffet Menu A’ costs $13.70 per pax (w/GST), which is relatively cheap, BUT you’ll need a minimum of 80 pax. So if your company has lots of employees, this is the one to go for. It’s also a halal buffet.
I’d definitely order the ‘Traditional Nonya Style Chap Chai’, and I’m terribly curious about their ‘Roasted Baked Boneless Chicken with BBQ Sauce’ <- what’s that gonna taste like? Roasted AND baked AND with BBQ sauce? Interesting. 😉
The ‘Prosperity Delight’ buffet is vegetarian（素）and costs $16.91 per pax (w/GST). It’s also halal.
I would love to try the ‘Signature red curry chicken with baby potatoes 招牌咖喱鸡，土豆’, ‘Crispy tofu skin roll 金脆腐皮卷’, and the ‘Longevity bailing mushroom concoction topped broccoli & cauliflower 百灵菇菜花’.
