Atrium Restaurant – New Buffet Restaurant At Holiday Inn Singapore Atrium

   

It has been a while since I returned to Holiday Inn Singapore Atrium, and realised that the hotel has been newly-refurnished, from the lobby, rooms to the restaurant.

The buffet restaurant used to be known as Melting Pot Café, and has been updated to be known as Atrium Restaurant, an all-day dining venue.

I would be frank to say that the change is much welcomed, and it is about time to shed off that old image (the cab driver who drove me here still thought it was The Glass Hotel.)

While Melting Pot Café had a dated woody outlook, the new Atrium Restaurant appeared contemporary, bright and modern. Liked the use of fresh colours – monochromatic base with green and orange accents on its furniture.

Food presentation looked appetizing, with more live-cooking stations.

The highlights – fresh seafood, international cuisine, specialty dishes created by Culinary Ambassador Thai celebrity chef Ian Kittichai, and local favourites specially prepared by Executive Chef Chua Yew Hock who has more than 30 years of culinary experience.

Here are some of the highlights. (Note: Buffet items may vary depending on time and days.)

Chilli Crab
The dish that most diners make a dive for. While I thought the meat could be juicer, the rich gravy tilted more towards sweet than spicy, and was appetizing enough to sweep clean with the deep-fried mantou.

Curry Laksa
One of my favourites. Laska with fresh shrimps, fish cake slices, boiled egg and taupok in milky gravy. I actually liked that it came in a small bowl, so that you can finish it without feeling overly guilty. Maybe you will take two bowls. Or more.

Mussel Otah-Otah
I am a big otah fan, but have never seen it served this style. Chef Chua’s created it such that the spicy smooth fish paste is baked with a mussel. So after eating the otah, there is a layer underneath comprising of succulent mussel. Can take a few.

Assam Fish
Local dishes seem to be the strength here. Fresh fish slices that are cooked in a tangy assam gravy, good to pour over rich or noodle dishes.

Marinated Tumeric Chicken
Celebrity Chef Ian Kittichai of Issaya Siamese Club (One of the 50 best restaurants in Asia) fame created a few dishes especially for the Holiday Inn restaurant, but my favourite was this chicken item served with Thai sweet chilli sauce on side.

Meat lovers should also head to the carving station for the whole baked salmon. There was a variety of cooked dishes available, such as Pan Fried Fish Fillet with Capers Cream Sauce, Roasted Lamb Leg with Mint Sauce, Braised Beef Cheeks, Provencal Lamb Rack, Fish Piccata and Champagne Pork Ribs.

Dessert wise, dids can head straight to the Chocolate Fondue on Sundays, or get pancakes and waffles prepared fresh in front of you, personalised with favourite ingredients of your choice.
I picked two scoops of gelato, some macarons and topped with chocolate sauce. What do you think?

    My favourite dish is mussel otah otah. I don't see it anywhere else and it looks really appetizing from the picture. It seems like the mussel is very juicy and fresh, one small bite I would be able to taste the mussel juice.

    My favourite dish is Mussel otah otah. As I can’t find it anywhere else and it looks really appetizing from the picture. It seems like one small bite, I would be able to taste the sweetness and freshness of the mussel. The batter of the mussel seems thin and cripsy.

  35. March 18, 2015 at 6:13 am #

    Been to the old Melting Pot Cafe, would love to try out the place after their recent renovation. To be quite frank, everything looks good and appetizing from the photos, but the one item that piqued my interest was the Mussel otah-otah. I can just imagine the fusion between the mussels and the fish paste. Baked to perfection, it conjures images in my mind of a nice fat juicy mussel hiding under a layer of aromatic and spicy otah. Hope that it will be as good as it sounds!

  36. March 18, 2015 at 6:13 am #

    My pick would be the mussel otah otah I am impressed about the combination of this dish. I would love to try it seems interesting and dlish :)

    Hi Daniel,

    My favourite will be the Chili Crab! I always love eating seafood when young! Because it is not cheap, so I don’t always get the chance to eat to my fullest. My parents can only afford to buy 1, max 2 and shared it among the family of 6. So I really hope to win so I can feast all I want! Definitely going to bring my mother as she love Chilli Crab as much as I do! 😛

    Thank you Daniel for hosting this giveaway! Hope to win 😀

    I suppose my favourite item would be the Curry Laksa as it is served in a small bowl, making consumption feel less guilty in addition to providing me with extra space for the other highlights such as the Chilli Crab and Mussel Otah-otah. I would end this delectable meal with a plate of macarons and several scoops of gelato, then repeat the cycle of eating by starting from the main course again.

    The restaurant definitely look refreshed and bright from your pictures.
    After reading your post, I was initially thinking the meat offerings (think roast lamb leg with mint sauce), but since you say local dishes seem to be their strength, I decided on Assam Fish. Love this local dish but seldom find a good one outside. Your description of the fresh fish slices and assam gravy, I am salivating thinking of the gravy on rice. Hmm Hmm~

  89. March 18, 2015 at 8:51 am #

It is the first time I’ve seen mussel and otah prepared together in such a way, and it looks really wicked such that salivate just by looking at the picture! ‘Can take a few.’? I’d just take the whole pot (just kidding)?

    OMG!! All the food looks great! It’s really hard to choose only one food item as my favourite. If i have to choose, I’ll go for the Mussel Otah-Otah! My entire family loves otah and seafood like clams and mussels. Would be great if i could bring my mum to try them on her coming birthday!

  112. March 18, 2015 at 10:32 am #

    My favourite will be whole baked salmon and icecream with pancake. Coz I love salmon and icecream. Salmon is healthy can help my baby to develop his/her brain better. Due to pregnancy, I'm forbid to eat icecream by my hubby. So sad.

    Marinated Tumeric Chicken is definitely the favourite item I wanna try! The name alone sounds tasty already!

    I love hot & spicy food and Thai food is a must in my daily life.

    Moreover this chicken dish is created by Celebrity Chef Ian Kittichai so hopefully I could win this chance to taste my “die die must try” turmeric chicken dish at Holiday Inn :)

    I love the curry laksa. As a laksa lover, Atrium’s version, complete with fragrant gravy together with dried shrimps, provides the necessary creaminess all laksas should have but yet was not too oily.

  127. Tham Mei Yoong

    I love almost everything edible from the sea (especially shelled seafood) and I’d say that Chilli Crab is likely my most favourite item from Atrium but I am equally curious about the Mussel Otah-Otah :)

  139. Josephine
    March 19, 2015 at 1:10 am #

    Probably chilli crab because.. I can eat a bucket of mantous with the sauce!!! (and also hopefully lots of pincer meat)

    My favourite item will be the Marinated Tumeric Chicken. I love the fragrant of the spices used.
    I have yet to try Holiday Inn Atrium buffet and would love to go for a feast with friends. <3

  141. March 19, 2015 at 2:00 am #

    if I’ve got to choose one, I would go for the dessert though I really wanna choose the chilli crab. But this buffet is so unique that they serve waffles with macaroons and ice cream! I’ve always thought that an awesome buffet is not awesome if the desserts are just so-so! But to top it off, they serve such expensive yet yummy desserts! It makes the whole buffet complete.

    Even if I don’t win it, I’ll still go for the buffet

Nevertheless, since it’s at Holiday Inn Singapore Atrium, it should definitely be irrestible and unbeatable to consumers!! Hence, my favorite!!! Nothing gonna “get over” chilli crabs!!!! :-)

    Mussel Otah-Otah would be a good choice. Like Daniel, the gym instructor, lecturer and food blogger, I am also a big otah fan. I have seen much ways of cooking otah but this is ingenious. I would perceive these fresh mussels complemented with the spiced fish paste, will be light, almost fluffy, very tender, and absolutely won’t have that “fishy” taste. Instead, the taste should be a super-good mushroom but with that whole ethereal “ocean” flavour blended with a zesty feel of oriental emotions. Liked and shared!

    My favourite item from Atrium Restaurant would be the Curry Laksa which looks so delicious and inviting with fresh shrimp. I am a huge fan of Curry Laksa, a dish that’s so fragrant and full of flavours, it never fails to satisfy my appetite. I like that this dish is served in a smaller bowl that way I can indulge without too much guilt.

    Hello! Looking at the the arrays of mouthwatering food, it’s insanely hard to choose a favorite. If I really have to choose one, it will be the roasted lamb leg with mint sauce because amazing culinary skills is required to pull this one off well. Combined with mint sauce, it’s a perfect match! Looking forward to try the food here at this new Atrium Restaurant.

    Hi Daniel

    If I have to choose a food served in the Atrium, it will be the mussel otah otah. Firstly, I have not seen such an unique food item that mixes different cultures in one. Secondly, I think my parents will enjoy their experience there because it serves their favorite food and I think they do deserve such a treat. Thank you!

    Answer: My favorite item is the Chilli Crab & Waffle with ice-cream.
    I love to eat dessert & I’m a fan of seafood. Because I am chef. I have passion in cooking and baking. I want to understand different ways of style on how people cook and display the food. Also love to taste different kind of food. :)

  280. Jayasree Sundar
    March 31, 2015 at 1:20 pm #

    If I am being offered the opportunity to experience this wonderful buffet spread, I would have to say that the whole baked salmon and the mussels otah otah would be one of my favorites! This decision was a tough call amidst the desserts which are available in the buffet spread since everyone who knows me well will immediately identify me as a desserts lover or basically a foodie. I chose these two dishes because the whole baked salmon is a healthy choice as opposed to any other cooking method and salmon tastes best when it is either smoked or baked. On top of that, it is garnished with lemon and parsley which gives a great artistic finish to the dish. Next, i chose the mussels otah otah as it a significant level of spiciness to it and it is also baked. The vast variety of food spread and the healthy choice of preparing them makes this buffet simply irresistible.

  281. Justin Chong
    March 31, 2015 at 2:10 pm #

    None other than the marinated tumeric chicken for its right blend of sauce, crisp, tenderness and spiciness!

    Mussel Otah-Otah – Imagine eating an oyster and then finding a pearl; I am pretty sure eating the otah and finding a mussel underneath will garner the same feeling!
