Media Tasting at Oscar’s
The current buffet scene at Oscar’s is unlike to pre-covid. It might be a blessing in disguise! This is like a sit down dinner where we place order and food is served right to our table.

There are also local delights such as Oscar’s laksa, prawn noodle soup, Singapore chili crab, bak kut teh, beef rendang and Indian cuisines. The line-up of dessert includes D24 durian puff, creme brûlée, pandan kopi ‘o’ tiramisu, ice cream and more.

The seafood platter is brimming with oysters, snow crabs, sea prawns and mussels. You can’t help but to see most of the diners have ordered oysters and sea prawns. The snow crabs were quite salty and we could not shake the taste of salt from our mouth.
One of my favourites, Crab Kueh Pie Tee with Garlic Aioli. Real crab meat generously stuffed in crisp kueh pie tee cup.
