Buffet restaurant Greenhouse at The Ritz-Carlton Millenia Singapore launches Truffle Rhapsody Thursdays

Buffet restaurant Greenhouse at The Ritz-Carlton Millenia Singapore launches a range of daily gastronomic deals. Our personal favorite pick of the lot; Truffle Rhapsody Thursdays. Every Thursday from now until March 26, Greenhouse features a buffet with a handcrafted selection of truffle-infused dishes for dinner. Signature dishes include beef wellington with rich, concentrated truffle sauce and Yorkshire pudding, truffle cream linguine, and the stunning onsen egg with truffle and choron sauce.

We start with the best, and you’ll soon understand why. A perfectly cooked onsen egg sits on a hot plate in a moat of truffle sauce, basking in all its splendid glory, its full golden yolk bouncy and jiggly, teasingly tempting us to scoop it up before taking a photo. “Eat me”, it taunts. Fresh shavings of black truffle and grated cheese rains down on the plump yolk, and we watch in anticipation as the server carefully hands it over. We pick up a spoon and gently press it against the jiggly yolk. (Watch it jiggle here.) Screw the photos. A river of sunshine bursts forth, and we quickly scoop it into our mouth. The warmth and richness of the yolk complemented by the musky, earthiness of truffle left us silent for a whole minute (which was how long it took us to polish off that dish). It’s the hallmark of all egg dishes.

The scallop ceviche stands out for its Asian flavors (from the incorporation of Chinese red chili) while the truffle vinaigrette smoothens out the edges. The fresh Hokkaido scallops are plump and chewy, the truffle vinaigrette adding to its sweetness—every component yielding together to result in an addictive dish.

There’s really too many noteworthy dishes to name, but we’ll end with the burger. Laced with aromas of truffle oil, the meat patty is moist and flavorful, sandwiched between soft burger buns, inhibiting any daresay of being ‘commonplace’. You’ll be thankful it’s a buffet—some dishes are worth returning for more.
