Where To Eat This Week: 25 Degrees, Coffee Lounge, Carousel, Oporto, The Lobby Lounge, Element Restaurant
The next time you’re craving a proper burger, try The Lamburger, available at 25 Degrees until June 30. The secret to it being so delicious is its thick and juicy patty, which is made with free-range Quercy Red Label lamb raised in the French Pyrenees. It's seared and delectably smoky, and slapped with housemade spicy Harissa yoghurt, fresh cucumber and mint raita sauce, before being sandwiched between soft, buttery brioche buns.
If you're a fan of the King of Fruits, you should be booking a table at the Coffee Lounge to enjoy a spread of lip-smacking durian desserts in addition to its regular offerings. Everything here will catch your fancy—from the classic D24 mousse cake and durian puff to the mini egg tarts that are exclusive to the spread. For more options, check out the live station where eager diners can have their durian pancakes prepared a la minute. Available until July 22.
The buffet restaurant known for its sumptuous offerings of local specials has switched up its lunch and dinner offerings on May 12 and 13, just in time for that special celebration with mum. The seafood spread during dinner will include the Alaskan king crab, prized for its sweet and fleshy legs, as well as hearty truffle-scented risotto and the slow-cooked Emperor's Chicken rich with Chinese herbal spices. Mothers will get a complimentary coffee mug, and are eligible to participate in the lucky draw which could win them a weekend staycation, lunch or dinner buffet for two and more.
