(Closed) 1 Market By Chef Wan
Malaysia's famous celebrity chef,Chef Wan,开了他第一家餐馆，1 Market in Singapore!这让新加坡的每个人都很兴奋，with queues forming outside the restaurant during dinner almost everyday.The boyfriend trvwin备用eated me to 1 Market's buffet lunch during the New Year.
The halal restaurant showcases exotic recipes in buffet-style,with crvwin备用eations inspired by his travels in Southeast Asia such as Vietnam,柬埔寨，Thailand and Indonesia.Let's see what they have!!
We started our lunch with some Japanese delights such as sashimi,sushi and soba.
Here are the cold seafood range.Because we had lunch,there is no oyster lah.
keropok for u??
There is the live station where the chef will prepare some Penang Rojak and Kueh Pai Tee for you.
Everyday,they will have a Today's Special corner and on that day,we had Thai seafood noodle soup.The soup is tangy and provides a good start to the meal.

Here's my buffet plate.
Satay is often out because chef was too slow in keeping up with the demand.And they don't really have a queue system,so everyone who wants satay just lingers around the corner and wait.You can probably get satay immediately if you come earlier or come very late.我建议他们建立一个队列系统，或者至少在每个表上都有一个数字标签，so that they can serve us the satay after it is ready.
Their grill is also taking way too long.In fact,I have never get a chance to vwin备用eat any at all.It was only when I am done with the mains and halfway into the desserts,then I saw this grilled sotong.
However,一个市场值得称道的一点是它们的酱汁种类繁多。Almost every corner,you will find different sauces and all of them tastes so good (especially if you are a chilli fan).I am not sure if they are doing it already,but it would be nice to bottle up the sauces and sell too!!
The dessert corner serves a variety of tarts and kueh.
They have semi-DIY corners like this ice kachang station where you take the ingredients you want,pass it to the staff and they will do the shaved ice for you.
Something to die for is their waffles.Surprisingly,buffet restaurants in Singapore has been churning out superb waffles.基西基does it well and 1 Market does it well too!Of course,you will expect a queue for the waffles.And if you want ice cream,你要问的员工。All their ice cream lah,ice lah,全部由员工管理，so you have to ask them for it.
Thank you boyfriend!!
– The hot dishes are pretty good only if you love the spices.So if you can't take it,you may not enjoy it.But I love their range of sauces.
– The waffles are good.
–烤架部分的供应不能满足需求。I initially thought it was a problem because I went on a public holiday.But from the reviews in Hungrygowhere,it seems to be a constant problem.
– Too much manpower used unneccessarily.是的，这将有助于减少一些浪费，但它只会使队列更长，特别是在高峰时段。例如，we can DIY on the rojak ourselves and take the ice cream ourselves.They can focus more manpower on the service staffs because the clearing of plates was too slow.
Overall,I still prefer the buffet variety atBuffet Townor奇迹.Frankly,I feel that for the price charged (see above picture for 1 Market's price list),food selection and quality can be better.If you really want to go and try,go during non peak hours.Weekends and public holidays,the queues are crazy and you most likely can't get any grilled food then.So it's not worth it.
