One-Ninety, Four Seasons Hotel

One-Ninety is the long-timer in-house continental restaurant of the Four Seasons in Singapore. It may be a trite dining concept, but it's an old-reliable that can be counted on for a simple, low-fuss meal amidst elegant digs.

The Mezze Dinner Buffet ($64+ per pax) is a semi-buffet spread of curated appetizers and desserts, and supplemented with an ala carte main course. It's not the most extensive or outstanding of buffets, but where the selection is kept purposefully small, the quality is maintained pretty highly.

My main was a Pan-fried Mediterranean Seabass, cooked beautifully, and simply adorned by a broccolini caponata, lemon, ketchup, and a lemon cream sauce.

The Hubs had the Black Angus Prime Tenderloin ($32 supplement) juicy, imbued with a wonderful char, and served with a red wine jus and blistered baby peppers. Nice if a little overpriced for the quality.
