Chicken Rice Buffet @ Cafe on the Ridge, NUSS

Last week, our colleague 'pirate' spotted this advert on the NUSS website. It's a Chicken Rice buffet!

There are all kinds of buffet nowadays eh? Chicken Rice buffet is something new! This is one of the more economical buffet at only $10.90 on a weekday. So, we thought we would try it out.

If you think it's only chicken, then you are wrong. There are many other things!

Here's what on their website, their highlights includes: Hainanese Steamed Chicken, Crispy Roasted Chicken, Sliced Beef Congee, Shredded Chicken Congee, Steamed Fish Head in Homemade Special Sauce, Pan Fried Curried Prawn, Sambal Sotong, Braised Beancurd with Leek in Hot Bean Sauce, Stir Fried Hong Kong Kailan in Minced Garlic Sauce, Stewed Mui Choy Kong Bak

Wait! That's not all! It seems, they have other sides as well.

As usual, we folks are getting 'older' and know eating too much is no good. LOL! So we only ate 'some' of it, and here's what we had.

The Crispy Roasted Chicken.
Not bad not bad!

Char Siu.
Ok lah...

Hainanese Steamed Chicken
This is quite nice too. You can tell them which part you want and they will chop it for you!

Some of the sides we took. Jiu Hu Eng Cai and some Achar.

They have chicken feet salad too! And tofu skin salad.

Chicken Feet Salad, Bean Curd Strips Salad

Good boys and girls eat their vegetables. :-p


Stewed Mui Choy Kong Bak.
This is a bit too salty for most of us!

Now, the porridge counter is interesting!
You pick what you want on a metal bowl, and pass it to the chef who will cook it for you immediately. I had beef slices and fish (what a weird combi!) porridge.

Other colleagues had pork liver which they adore....

Of all the desserts, we like the Konnyaku the most!
We started with 3 pieces to try it out....


We found that it's nice! We got more! (And even more after. haha)


The buffet's only in the month of August. Last month it was the Bak Kut Teh buffet. I wonder what's next month's!
Am sure our colleague 'pirate' will inform us. hehe...

Delicious looking buffet. Just looking at the photos make me hungry.

Great photography skills. The close-up and/or cropping is perfect (it makes the food more delicious :)

Everything looks awesome.. Looking at this post, I have really bad cravings for some hainanese chicken and chicken feet salad. Drooling. Great photos by the way.
