I've just had an amazing pasta meal cooked by a 5-star hotel chef and at a very affordable price in the safety and comfort of my own dining room.
I am doing my bit in keeping local businesses alive as best as I can.
Amid these crazy times, people are avoiding buffets like the plague (pardon the pun) and hotels are the hardest hit as the pandemic drags on.
Swanky hotels with extravagant all-you-can-eat buffets now seem like petri dishes than a nice place to dine in.
Think communal salad tongs! Shudder!
Pre-Covid-19, I would drool at the mere thought of the rainbow swirl of desserts, pastas, curries, satay...
In an effort to keep their staff, a local award-winning 5-star hotel has taken the initiative to repurpose their buffet cooking stations into take-away counters, offering meals at modest prices.
Now, with all the trappings of a luxury hotel gone, the restaurant looks more like a canteen.
