Beach Road Kitchen, JW Mariott South Beach


We can never have enough of good buffets, right? So when my colleague highly recommended South Beach Kitchen for dinner, I immediately said yes without even asking about the price. (It’s $78++ btw.)

Floor to ceiling glass panels are just a hint of what’s to come.

Introducing the cold room. Literally it’s a room with all your cold appetizers. You now the Heineken advertisement where the guys went crazy after stepping into a room full of beer? I had that same feeling here. Feel free to pick out lobsters, crabs, prawns, oysters (freshly shucked on the spot!!), sashimi, carpaccio and more.

Oysters are freshly shucked on the spot. Really fresh!

Their salad section is grown to impress. On the top shelf, you can use the scissors provided to snip off your favourite veggies for the freshest greens.

Right next to the salad bar is the noodle bar. Pick your noodles yong tau foo style and have it with their Laksa soup.

Roasted beef was good! Most places do not do their roasted beef right but Beach Road Kitchen passed my standards.

They have a pizza oven can you believe it? Sadly though, their famous truffle pizza was a total disappointment. No truffle taste at all.

Grill station! Grill your favourite dishes like seabass or promphet here. It takes about 15 minutes, so do order early.

If you can’t wait for the grilled fishes, go for the grilled meats! They use iberico pork and galbi beef. Very good textures for grilled meat.

Small but sufficient Indian cuisine station. At the very end of the station is the Hainanese Chicken Rice station with roast meat. I think you can give that a miss. The chicken was too dry and the taste was forgettable.

The following pictures are Beach Road Kitchen’s dessert station. It was super impressive.

There are so many variations of ice cream! Soft serve, ice cream in cups, cookie ice cream sandwiches… You will really be spoilt for choice here. If you had to forgo one however, skip the ice cream in cups. The flavours look tantalizing, but it was overly creamy. You’ll be done after the third scoop.

They also have a waffles and pancake station. Feel free to ask for bananas in your pancakes. Top it up with Nutella and you’re in heaven.

End off your buffet with coffee or tea. I liked that they use TWG tea, really fitting for the quality of the buffet.

Overall, I liked the presentation of the food and the layout of the place. The seating capacity is huge, so I would advise you to start your buffet as early as you can to avoid the crowd. There were more hits than misses, and in my opinion, Beach Road Kitchen is worth the money. Definitely within top 5 on my list.

Pool Grill, Mariott Hotel

Worth a try.

With this view as you take your Saturday brunch in the heart of the city, why say no?

Toasted bread with dips

Lobster Linguinie with Lobster Butter and Avruga Caviar ($32.50)

Respectably sized lobster which tasted decent, cooked with just the right amount if time. The dish itself, however, tasted quite bland. I had to add a pinch of freshly grounded pepper. 

Pan-fried Cod Fish with Cauliflower Tempura, Confit Garlic and Shiraz Reduction ($36)

Delicious!!! The choice and size of cod fish really justified the price. Large silky chunks of meat that fall off easily when you pierce your fork through, together with the lightly flavoured reduction sauce — I could eat another plate of this.

Prices are slightly on the high side, but hey, with a pool view and great quality catches, the date would be perfect. Do make your reservations though; pool views are limited in tables.
