Heading out for a cheat meal this weekend? Check out one of these lip-smacking a la carte buffets in Singapore 2023 that are also pocket-friendly!

Like most self-professed foodies in Singapore, the one thing that made everything feel better during the pandemic is the fact that you could get your favourite food delivered from your preferred restaurant, cafe or hawker.

Great as that was and still is, sometimes all you really want is to dine out and have the option of unlimited servings of sashimi, grilled beef or sizzling pork belly. 

International buffets may be back on the menu, but they are usually more expensive than a la carte buffets, due to the location and menu spread.

So, whatever your food cravings may be, satisfy them at one of these 6 a la carte restaurants the next time you head out with your family or friends.

You can also check out their happy hour menu for housepour spirits (S$10++ per shot), wines (S$8++ per glass), cocktails (from S$12 per glass), and other refreshingly intoxicating concoctions.

They even have a one-for-one beer promo starting at S$13++. from Monday to Thursdays between 5pm and 8pm, so remember to jio your colleagues!
