Best A La Carte Buffets in Singapore: We Included a Comparison of Affordable Options Too!

profileMing Feng

We visited a Korean BBQ Buffet recently and the experience was not the best.

Due to the need for social distancing and for the safety of everyone, the buffet food can only be handled by the restaurant’s staff. This applies to every restaurant including the condiment section of Hai Di Lao.

The understaffed Korean BBQ restaurant only had one staff to help the entire restaurant with their buffet needs. We end up forming a line and spent half the time queueing for food.

That got us thinking.

What if we can still enjoy our love for buffet while remaining at our seats, catching up with our friends?

The solution?
