If you love your seafood buffet spread both raw and cooked, swing by Oscar’s for their dinner buffet. Prices vary depending on the day of the week, but we recommend their Wednesday to Sunday dinner as the menu is broader. Priced at $95++ per adult and $47.50++ per child, the buffet is well worth the splurge. For one, the seafood on ice selection includes two different types of oysters, as well as slipper lobsters. Once you’ve loaded up on those, move on to mains from their cooked selections. For something decidedly local, try the Stir-Fried Sea Prawns with Kam Heong Sauce. On the Western end, dig into a Spicy Seafood Stew that’s perfumed with lemongrass and basil. There’s also a charcoal barbecue station, where you get unlimited servings of smoky Nyonya Spicy Fish Otah.
