Last year when I first started this website, I checked out Hai Tien Lo's Weekend Dim Sum Buffet (since I happened to be staying at the property) and fell absolutely in love with it. Over time, the restaurant has become a popular haunt for me (and my family) to have quality dim sum for a really reasonable price.
Hai Tien Lo (海天楼) has just refreshed their Weekday Dim Sum Buffet (Monday to Friday only) with a generous selection of more than 30 items including double-boiled soups (which you have to try!), handmade dim sum as well as signature dishes. Curated jointly by reputable Master Chef Lai Tong Ping and Dim Sum Chef Lee Siaw Cheen (李小珍), the Weekday Dim Sum Buffet is priced reasonably at S$56++ per guest but you can easily get at least 10% back in dining rebates - find out how below!
Enjoy authentic Cantonese flavours with new culinary creations like the Steamed Minced Beef Dumplings with Ginger and Spring Onion and the Steamed Pork and Prawn Dumplings with Black Truffle (unlimited servings!). If you would like something a little more robust, check out one of Chef Lee's new creations - the Golden Deep-fried Prawn Paste with Wasabi Mayonnaise that is bursting with flavours. Other highlights in Hai Tien Lo's Weekday Dim Sum Buffet includes the Baked Barbecued Pork Pastry with Sesame and Five Spice Rolls with Minced Pork as well as signature staples like the Barbecued Crispy Roast Duck and the Stir-fried Carrot Cake with Signature Homemade XO Chilli sauce (another one of my favourites).
All diners will also be given a complimentary serving of the exquisite Chilled Homemade Bean Curd with Bird’s Nest during the Hai Tien Lo’s Weekday Dim Sum Buffet. Handmade from an old recipe, the silky smooth texture and the nutritious Bird's Nest (known for beauty purposes too) is the perfect end to this satisfying meal.

The popular annual Wagyu Beef promotion at Keyaki (Pan Pacific Singapore) is back from 12 August 2016 to 19 September 2016 with the introduction of a lesser-known but high-quality Iga Wagyu Beef - one of the dishes that was believed to be consumed by the Ninja warriors during wartime in the Iga region of Japan.
Edge at the Pan Pacific Singapore is one of Singapore's best buffet spots - the variety is just incredible (you can NEVER eat everything in one visit) and the price is reasonable for what you are getting - Hooked @ Edge which features a wide selection of fresh seafood has always been a crowd favourite on Wednesdays and Thursdays each week! The newly-released Surf & Turf dinner buffet replaces the previous Cuts @ Edge dinner promotion that runs every Tuesday. In short, you can now enjoy the best of both worlds (seafood and meats) on Tuesday at the Pan Pacific Singapore.

I have written about the DISCOVERY Loyalty Program by the Global Hotel Alliance (GHA) on multiple occasions. Personally, I have completed at least 30 stays at the Pan Pacific Singapore and the Pan Pacific Orchard in the last two years. Within Singapore, the DISCOVERY program is one of my personal favourites as it offers everything important for a perfect staycation - especially when you reach top-tier with the program after 30 eligible nights!

I spent the Christmas Eve of 2015 at the Pan Pacific Singapore (the Mandarin Oriental, Singapore in 2014 and the Hilton Singapore in 2013) as part of my personal tradition. Since I wanted to take full advantage of my expiring Black status with the DISCOVERY Loyalty status then, I deliberately booked the Pacific Club room and enjoyed a two category upgrade (as per Black benefits) into the Pacific Harbour Studio (one that I have been dying to check out!) for Christmas Eve.
