Plaza Market Cafe offers buffet-style meals. Although the Peranakan dishes are the highlight of the buffet, the coffee house also serves an international mix of Asian and Western food. I particularly love its dessert selection.
I went to Plaza Market Cafe many years back for dinner, when it was really very focused on Peranakan food, and I thought it was a cheap disaster. But when I went back this time for lunch, I thought it was quite good.
Now, they have more of international buffet and keep the Peranakan cakes and dessert. And they have the durian puree (which I was told, is famous at their sister hotel, Swissotel Merchant Court), but too bad I was too "heaty" that day to try this.
I like their chinese dishes, like the meatball soup and the roast meat.
I like Plaza Market Cafe's wide selection of dessert, the fresh thick slices of sashimi, the DIY salad bar, its Peranakan dishes and its mean local soup!
I patronise it often because of a special one-for-one promotion with my Amex card. hehe.....
The popular and super delicious Durian Pengat! A huge, chilled pot of it!
Its awesome Bread Pudding which is available only during the Lunch Buffet.
Sorbets!! Made in its own kitchen, some of the sorbets are so delicious.
Try its daily boiled local soup. Its Pork Maw or Kiam Chye (Salted Vegetable) Soup tastes heavenly! The soup was exactly how my Mom and I would boil it. So flavourful! It has the porky aroma! That's what you get for boiling pork bones for hours! I drink 2 - 3 bowls each time. It not only warms my stomach, it warms my soul.
Service is friendly and pretty good. Empty plates are quickly cleared away and they do not add hot water to your used tea bag!
Some restaurants' idea of refilling a cup of tea is to add hot water to the used tea bag it! Delifrance is guilty of that. I hate it! It's like drinking longkang water.
