From 5 November to 4 December 2015, diners will be able to savour the exotic cuisine from Latin America in the friendly atmosphere of Oscar’s at Conrad Centennial Singapore. The “Savouring Latin America” buffet celebrates the vibrant culture of the South American continent and promises to excite your visual and gustatory senses with a smorgasbord of Latin America culinary creations from appetisers, mini dishes, cold cuts, seafood, delectable mains, carving station and sweet treats.
The buffet includes maize-based dishes such as tortillas and tacos, as well as a variety of authentic salsas and spicy condiments in the likes of guacamole, pico de gallo, chimichurri, aji peppers and pebre. It also features Sofrito, a sauce commonly used as a base in Latin American cooking and is made of aromatic ingredients such as paprika, onion, garlic, cumin, olive oil and oregano powder.
Executive Sous Chef Rodrigo Martinez had worked in Chile, Argentina, Doha, Brazil, Colombia, Guatemala, Mexico and even China before setting foot in Singapore. Many of the dishes from the “Savouring Latin America” were reminiscent of his favourite home-cooked food from his hometown in Chile.
At the carving station, you will be able to find a wide array of meat and seafood dishes, such as roasted lamb leg with chimchurri sauce, and red snapper wrapped in banana leaf and baked in salt crust seasoned with Tequila.

Do you know that a single oyster needs a minimum of three to four years to grow? A tip from the oyster connoisseurs is to chew them slowly to get the full flavour of the sea in your mouth instead of slurping them up in three seconds!
The Savouring Latin America buffet also features signature mainstays of Conrad Centennial Singapore such as the seafood bar (Chilean Scallop, Chilean Mussel, King Crab, Live Pacific Oysters), Chinese cooked dishes, sushi bar, salad bar, and noodle bar which is located outdoors.
The four appetising starters above were painstakingly created to taste sweet, sour, spicy and salty each on the palate.
Other than Latin American food, the buffet also offers an extensive selection of desserts to excite your sweet tooth.
This three milk cake uses three types of milk. It is a crowd pleaser among the diners as it is soft, light and not overly sweet. The pastry chefs had to replenish the entire cake within two hours on the night I visited.
The buffet opens one’s eyes to the rich and distinct flavours of Latin American cuisine that you might be tempted to just book a flight to visit South America soon.
The Savouring Latin America Buffet is happening from 5 November to 4 December 2015.
