9th Aug 2013 - National Day Dinner at Royal Palm

We saw a deal online for buffet dinner at Royal Palm at Singapore Flyer on National Day for $48 and a few of us decide to buy it to spend our first national day evening together. We are so looking forward to it as this is going to be a dinner buffet and we can get to watch fireworks while we dine. This buffet starts from 7pm to 10pm and it includes free flow of soft drinks. We do not have to get the drinks ourselves, the staffs here will walk around to help us pour and refill. A little slow at times but we are still quite ok with their service.
 
As we are worried that the road to the Singapore Flyer would be closed, we decide to park at Suntec and walk over...
a pic since we are early and the buffet has not started..
 the free flow soft drinks...
 Pauline decides to buy this Singapore Sling Cocktail at $10 after many persuasion from the manager. This is an alcoholic drink, I don really fancy this kind of alcoholic cocktail but my friend manages to finish it.
 so nice, we get to see the helicopters and the fighter jets performance too...
 The buffet spread is sort and serve according to various ethic group. Check out the spread they have for the evening.

 
These are some of the stuffs that I have tasted for the evening. The chili crab is one of the hottest for the night, often wipe out quickly when they refill. The crab does not have much meat but the sauce is nice. The carrot cake is a little dry but still taste ok with the sambal chili they provide. The fried hokkien mee is not nice, dry and too salty. The sushi is ok, the ingredients they use are fresh.
 
The satay is not nice, too dry but the satay sauce is nice and we eat it with the chicken wings which is crispy on the outside.  

Gado Gado, quite nice with the nice balachan chili which is spicy and smelly enough and the nice satay sauce. I like this balachan chilli so much that I even dip it with crackers and the other food.

its night time and we are so excited to see the fireworks later...
 
we are getting ready our cameras to take pic and video of the fireworks..
 
we are so near but we are blocked by a few coconut trees.. hehe...
 As Royal Palm is beside the pavement that the performers have to pass thru, we get to see them close..



 some of them are so friendly as they will come forward to us and hi-5 us...
 
Food choice is a little disappointing with not much choice but we like the feeling of getting to eat and watch firework at the same time.
