Lime @ Park Royal On Pickering Hotel
Relaxing, calming and definitely nature inspired - this is the overall ambiance of the new Park Royal on Pickering. It's an absolute breather from a typical busy vibe of a city hotel. There's no doubt why this hotel is increasingly becoming popular around Singapore since its opening in January 2013. Beyond its façade and architecture which is pretty impressive, I can feel that there's something more to like about in this hotel. The moment you enter the lobby, you will be welcomed with a refreshing atmosphere. You will know in an instant that this is a perfect respite from the hustle and bustle of city life.
I love these wooden chairs. The design complements the movement of the water fountain outside.
The lovely infinity pool overlooking the city.
True to its claim, it's really a hotel in a garden. And what better way to complement this beauty than having a place to experience gastronomical delights? As we often times said, good food and good ambiance make a perfect combination. The Lime restaurant offers just that. Located at the ground level of the hotel (near the lobby area), the resto-bar provides a wide array of culinary choices. It generally showcases French cuisine, some popular Asian dishes and selected local favourites. Chef Alex Siah (Chef de Cuisine) who leads the cordial team of the restaurant, shared that some of the dishes he concocted for the buffet spread are heirloom recipes. This is something worth noting for diners! Primarily because heritage dishes coupled with personal touch are usually more interesting than industrial ones.
Green Tea Chocolate Fountain - I guess this is to adhere to the green theme as well hence, that explains why it's not your typical brown chocolate fountain (such a nice idea!).
They serve Piper Heidsieck champagne for the alcohol brunch..
Here are some of the dishes that captured my wandering taste buds:
Herb-Crusted Cod with Thyme Sauce and Tiger Prawn Meuniere (3rd photo clockwise) are also among my favourites. They are best paired with Ratatouille.
Truly scrumptious desserts - this section undoubtedly won me over. It's one of the most extensive dessert selections I've seen in a buffet. Sweet lovers will have a real feast! So make sure, you leave ample room for the sweet treats.
Lime's showcase of food is not grand nor fancy. Foods are presented in their utter simplicity. Depending on one's preference it can be perceived as just right or something that calls for an improvement. Personally, dining at Lime is a different experience in its entirety. There were dishes that registered in my palate's memory, that's for sure. But what I particularly appreciated was being able to savour good food in a truly sublime atmosphere which; not too many can offer.
