Indulge in “Flavors of the World” at Novotel’s The SQUARE

misterchewy and missuschewy

It was a perfect day to chill and relax when misterchewy and I were out of office on a particular weekday. We took this opportunity to sleep in and later headed off to Hotel Novotel at Clarke Quay for lunch!

Located atop the 7th storey of a prominent business hotel Novotel Singapore Clarke, The SQUARE is a hip and modern restaurant that boosts of an interactive ‘live’ cooking experience where guests can interact directly with the chefs and have their desired dish prepared in the open kitchen, as they move through the different stations.

Recently launched at The SQUARE is a new concept that promises to satiate the taste buds of its customers and patrons. Strategically termed as “Flavours of the World with a Local Twist”, the concept gives foodies a chance to embark on the most delicious journey of their life, tasting food specialties from east to west, without actually leaving Singapore.

The cold selection is dismally limited and there weren’t any oysters to being with. However, fret not as a larger selection will be made available on weekends.

Now, this looks interesting and I was naturally drawn to this section. I think this Claypot idea is a brillant one as it keeps the food hot. Another plus point is that the food gets more flavorful with time!

We sampled the Chicken Fried Rice, claypot style, which was simple and satisfying.

We thought it was odd that we found pieces of mock char siew in the Fried Kway Teow but later found out that this is a vegetarian dish. But honestly, what’s char kway teow without all that lard and cockles?

I figure that the Risotto and Pasta corner would be a big hit. It’s not very often that buffets serve risotto cooked a la minute. Don’t ever leave without trying this! I loved the risotto’s smooth and creamy consistency without being thick and clumpy. If you want some meat to go along with your risotto, parma ham would be a good choice!

And it’s impossible to miss out on everybody’s favorite Laksa! What stood out was not the laksa gravy, which in my opinion was slightly oily, but the smooth and bouncy thick beehoon.

The SQUARE has quite a delightful variety of desserts! Just look at these dainty Muffins in different flavors :)

Raspberry Mousse in a sweet pink shade, anyone?

I would personally recommend the Tiramisu and Durian Pengat. Go for seconds if you can!
