Savouring Latin America at Oscar’s at Conrad Centennial Singapore


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.

Carving Station

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.

Seafood Bar

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!
