Pablo Cheese Tart Singapore

Since the Japanese Famous Cheese Tart, Pablo was announced to be open in Singapore, I have been eyeing for it till now. I was even there on their opening day but the queue was too long to be handle so I decided to get up early and be there on 10am sharp today.

There were already quite a few people queuing infront of me and by 10am to be honest they are not well-prepared to serve. 

To be exact, Singapore's Pablo serves you in a box while dining in. If you prefer like me, on a plate which I think it suppose to be you got to request for it. Makes no sense to me at all...

Pablo Mini SG$3.50 each.

I prefer so much of the BAKE's cheese tart over Pablo's mini cheese tart. Pablo's mini cheese tart is more like a soury taste and I don't like the thick crust... 

The comparison in size of the big and the mini one base on photo. I prefer of course the big one, where the cheese inside is more a pudding-like and the crust is pastry-like. But it's not good enough to not have any ice cream & syrup to go with... 

Well why I say so? Because I had my first Pablo Cheese Tart experience when I was at Taipei for vacation, but sadly the Taipei's Pablo was closed permanently now.

I prefer my Pablo Cheese Tart to be served warm on a plate which it supposed to be like and with ice cream & syrup to eat with, which was my most unforgettable cheese tart moment in my life. I really hope the Singapore's Pablo will provide in the same way base on customer's priority.

The Classic Cheese Tart Smoothie SG$7.80, it was a decent cup of smoothie.

My Pablo Singapore experience was really bad, cheese tart not served warm... Doesn't present on a plate when you dine-in, and you got to request for it yourself. I wanted to order ice cream but their ice cream was not ready and I was told that it will take few hours to prepare the ice cream...

What a total disappointment... If you are to open at 10am sharp your products have to be fully prepared ready for ordering... And they also use the self-collection device concept, you got to keep an eye for your own order because the device is not working, the staffs were not well-trained and it seems they don't know what they are doing... Service was very slow so I assumed the long queue was also partly affected. 

I will not recommend you guys to queue so long for the cheese tart, not worth it for the price, the taste, the service and your precious time. If you really want to try, don't try it now... Just wait for some time and hope they improve their preparation in the future or wait like me when there is an opportunity to travel Osaka's Pablo branch. 

Peace~

Rise Restaurant Buffet Marina Bay Sands

Come have a tour with me at the newly re-renovated refreshed tremendous Rise Restaurant presenting the most lavish International Buffet spread at Singapore's iconic Marina Bay Sands.

I have always wanted to visit Rise's Buffet for a very long time and gladly I came now. The Buffet spread was humongous I did missed a couple of stations while picture taking.

Look at the bread station... I just feel like eating but I have to skip them in order to try other delicacies. 

Know me well enough? Salads will always be my first grab at any buffet, it's my own tummy-strategy not applicable to everyone don't learn from me. 

I love how they already prepared the salads with shrimps, they were really refresh and light. There were also drink station, well in my opinion not fresh fruit juice but they're good enough. 

The highlight at the Seafood area was their Fresh oysters... They were fresh, big and sweet, how long have I never enjoyed such fresh oysters for quite some time at a lot of buffets.

Forget about the lobster tails, they were chopped into a few pieces and not that fresh.

Not being over exaggerating, but the Salmon Sashimi was very fresh and they also have yellow tail, Hamachi Sashimi which were decent and the sushi was not that great don't eat too much of it.

Laksa was average and the carrot cake was savoury.

I like the Indian food station which I hardly reach to most of the time, they were well presented. 

Chili Crab was at the "Chinese food station which I missed taking pictures of it", the crab was huge and quite decent.

The cooked salmon at the western station was amazingly delicious, it just melts in your mouth in a few seconds. 

My favorite was their Peanut Butter Bread and Pudding, peanut butter just adds another sensational touch.

The unavoidable fascinating chocolate fondue flowing down smoothly where your eyes stays on for a moment with it thinking which fruit are you picking to bathe in.

Desserts were just average, but looking at the neat & cute displays makes me happy to try them all even though I was already full. Not forgetting, I got another stomach for just desserts.

Overall, I will highly recommend Rise Buffet to everyone. Worth the money for such a huge buffet spread, the place was also very big and you need to walk further burn some calories to get your food. If you are bringing elderly, request to sit nearer to the buffet spread.

Service was averagely good, I went on last Saturday for dinner and I will come back again to try other themes. Personally, Rise has been one of my top favorites it even defeated Melt Café in my opinion.
