The season for the King of Fruits is back! Check out these buffets with

ELLENBOROUGH MARKET CAFÉ
Featuring a series of daily buffets (lunch: Mon-Fri $38++, Sat-Sun $48++; dinner: Mon-Thu $48++, Fri-Sun $52++), the long-time establishment is well-known not just for Peranakan food but their durian based desserts as well. Smooth, creamy, and filled with bits of durian meat, the bowl of classic durian pengat is always the fastest to empty out.

FEAST @ EAST
Another buffet popular for their Peranakan dishes (lunch: Mon-Sun $41++; dinner: Mon-Thu $44, Fri-Sun $46). Rich and velvety, the durian pengat here is bursting with sweet fragrant creamy goodness. If the paste is not your thing, check out the famed fluffy durian cakes (which you can also buy from the deli). It’s just as good as eating the fruit without the hassle of dealing with the clean-up.
