Colony At The Ritz-Carlton, Millenia Singapore

Colony at The Ritz-Carlton is a new and exciting dining concept which took over the space formerly occupied by Greenhouse. The newly opened Colony incorporates a elegant British-colonial setting, it is characterised by an eclectic mix of vintage and bespoke furnitures. Colony showcases eight different conservatory kitchen, featuring cuisines like Chinese, Indian, Indonesian, Malaysian, Western and local dishes.



Colony alludes to the seafarious voyage that the British took to travel to the East Indies for trade and commerce in the late eighteenth century. 


Incorporating various cooking techniques, each 'live' kitchen showcases the best of most south east Asia cuisine, bringing you on a culinary journey through Singapore's heritage cuisines. 
Below you will find the following eight different conservatory kitchens:

THE ICE BAR

Here at The Ice Bar, you will find a variety of crustaceans on ice, salads, cold cuts and cheeses. As well as highlights such as the king crab legs, scallops, black mussels, prawns and freshly shucked oysters right infront of you. Not forgetting the assorted sushi and different types of sashimi.





THE GRILL & ROTISSERIE

At this station, it feature a selection of Western and Asian grilled meat. Don't forget to try the chicken rice here, it is named as one of the top chicken rice. Love the fragrant rice. for Asian meats, there's roast pork, char siew, chicken and duck meat. Highlight: Iberico suckling pig with balinese spices.



Where else for the other western items, some highlight would be the beef wellington, beer battered cod fillet, beef and stout stew and grilled satay.


THE STEAM BASKET

As the name goes steam basket, one would definitely think of steamed delights. An assortment of dim sum such as scallop dumplings and xiao long bao. Besides that, it also feature soups and Asian noodles such as Colony laksa with homemade lobster ball and hand-pulled noodles with supreme chicken broth. And oh wait, did I see wrongly. What, there's Zha Jiang Mian too.



THE WOK

The Wok, of course it means local wok-fried delicacies! Some of the main highlight here is namely the Singapore chili crab and Seafood fried rice with XO sauce. Pork belly was good!




THE TANDOOR

The station with a wide spread of Indian meats, seafood and breads cooked in a traditional tandoor oven. Some highlight that you may find: Roti Prata, prawn kali mirchi, lasooni lamb steak and assorted naans.



THE FRUIT STALL

No doubt, this is one of my favorite station. With an assortment of whole fruits and fresh pressed fruit juices. I can pick what combination of fruits I'd like and it will be blend freshly right infront of you. 
Be sure to look out for "The Juice of the Day".



THE PATISSERIE

At this station, you will find a decadent selection of sweet treats. Highlights such as the assorted Nonya kueh, bread and butter pudding, tea chocolates and interesting ice cream flavours such as earl grey, chendol and gula melaka. Love the wide spread of cakes, meringue, macarons etc, such as sweet heaven!



I specially love the caramel hazelnut cake!
Anyway, the cakes, chocolates and pastries are available for takeaway too.



Live cooking station for crepes suzette and different types of condiments to pair along. The ice cream flavours you find at Colony is unique such as Thai milk tea, chendol, black sesame etc. 
Complement them together, satisfaction indeed.


THE BAKERY

As the name says all, the bakery feature freshly baked breads, pastries as well as sandwiches. These are available for take away too at the counter outside.



I have included the popiah station here as well, it was rather good! Considering that they have such a wide variety in this buffet line, quantity and quality are of equal.


HANDCRAFTED COCKTAILS

At Colony, bartenders will come round and make cocktails right next to your table. There's a choice of Long Journey and Bengal Brew ($22++ each), drinks inspired during the passage from Britain to Singapore time. Interesting table-side cocktail service for a buffet. I personally prefer the long journey more.



Not forgetting the gorgeous layout and ambience of Colony, especially in the day. This elegant restaurant makes it 'British-colonial' with it's vintage maps and postcards hanged on the wall. The buffet prices may leans towards the steeper side but I promise the quality of the food makes it worth. I would recommend this as an ideal spot for romantic dates or even a family gathering.
