Food Review: Sky on 57 Buffet Breakfast (Marina Bay Sands Hotel)

May 01, 2015 1 Comments A+ a-


Breakfast is often a rushed affair for us working adults and we often just grab a milk and dash out of the house. However, this often-heard phrase tells us that we must never skip this important first meal of the day: "Eat breakfast like a king, lunch like a prince and dinner like a pauper".

Since today was Labour Day, to reward ourselves for the whole year's labour, we decided to treat ourselves to a slow breakfast and start the day with a nice meal. :)

Located on 57th Level of MBS, Sky on 57 offers breakfast with a view. At S$41++, this was a semi-buffet where we were able to choose 2 main courses, with a buffet spread. Helmed by Justin Quek, a celebrity chef, this breakfast at a 5-star hotel was a good deal. Below was a neat menu that greeted us:

 
 
2 Breakfast Items
The choices for the 2 breakfast items were sufficient. With Western and Asian concepts, this caters to both local and foreign palates. The Western dishes like eggs benedict were common brunch staples (and suitable for children), while the Asian dishes like laksa and ramen would likely be popular choices for tourists:

 

I chose 1 Western and 1 Asian dish. They felt warm and assuring for the hungry and cold stomach:
My Western dish. I chose a more less common dish - the Baked Egg Printemps.
On a side note, I think I may try to replicate this on the airfryer one day.
My Asian dish - the Tonkotsu Ramen.

Buffet Spread
I then headed over to the buffet section. The variety was good, almost like a full-fledged buffet with porridge, kway teow, cheeses, smoked salmon, danish pastries, fruits and juices. I will let the photos do the rest of the talking :)
Cheeses
Corn flakes for the children
Smoked salmon and ham
Various nuts (walnuts, hazelnuts) and dried toppings (cranberries, raisins etc).
Danish patries and muffins
Hashbrown and bacon to go with the egg main course dishes
A wide range of cut and whole fruits to start the day
Juices

Free flow of gourmet coffee, TWG tea and chocolate is also available upon request from the servers. Nice!
 

Overall 
We had a hearty breakfast and certainly didn't need to have lunch. Service was prompt and the staff were attentive.

If you are someone who doesn't mind starting the day early or are staying over at MBS, this is the best choice for you. With the buffet stretching from 7am to 11am, this is indeed the place with a view to enjoy your breakfast over the morning newspapers.
 

And since Singapore's skyline is really stunning from up here, do take a stroll at the skypark with your family before/after the buffet :)

Variety: 6.5/10
Taste: 7.5/10
Ambience: 8.5/10
Value for money: 7.5/10
Overall: 8/10
(This is the average rating from the husband and me)

For between choosing a Buffet or another we need to be on top of what each one offers the best, worrying about the number of services and professionals that will be available for the celebration. Buffets some you do not even bother with the decor, as many nowadays already offer this customer option so that it will save your expenses.
