Regardless of how many New Year’s resolutions we’ve set, it’s always hard to resist the allure of an affordable buffet with free-flow meats, seafood, and other tummy-filling goodies.
Geylang is home to many hidden gems, from authentic banh mi to mee hoon kueh, and of course, an array of late-night eateries offering hotpot, Chinese skewers, and lok lok. One fine example would be That1, a relatively low-key eatery that opens till 1am daily.
Don’t be fooled by its unassuming exterior — the two-storey Chinese eatery (like most eateries along the Geylang Road stretch), offers one of the most value-for-money seafood and BBQ buffets we’ve come across in a while.
The buffet is priced at S$39.90+ per pax at dinner (daily), but those who head down during lunch (11am to 3pm) can enjoy it at just S$29.90+ per pax from Mondays to Thursdays.
Every two persons are entitled to either one seafood bucket or BBQ steamboat; if you dine in a group of four, you’ll get to order both.
The Seafood Bucket (U.P. S$98 for a la carte) consists of a generous portion of mud crabs (the meaty kind), prawns, mussels, lala, scallops, crayfish, squid rings, sweet corn, potato, and cocktail sausages.
You can even choose from an assortment of sauces: Chilli Crab, Butter Tomato, Black Pepper, or the signature Mala Curry.
Moving on to the BBQ Steamboat, That1 offers a two-in-one BBQ and steamboat set (similar to mookata) with ingredients like prawns, scallops, enoki mushrooms, quail eggs, marinated chicken, and even a unique 5 Spices of Life — five slices of pork belly in five different flavours symbolising five basic tastes: Lemon (Sour), Sweet Soya Sauce (Sweet), Coffee (Bitter), Wasabi (Spicy), and Fermented Bean Curd (Salty).
The buffet also comes inclusive of free-flow soft drinks (with the option of an additional S$10 for free-flow beer) and mains from the regular menu, like stewed claypot dishes (go for the Stewed Beef and Sesame Chicken) and fried finger foods.
Those who want to sing and dine at the same time can make a beeline for the family-sized karaoke room — advanced bookings are required.
