New Restaurant: edge Dinner Buffet Part II

Continuing off from where I stopped previously in part I, here's the next part of my post!

Dim Sum Selection

They have quite a wide variety! Basically what they have is what is shown in the pictures and the big bamboo baskets to the right in the 1st pic is where your hot dimsum comes out from!

Siew Mai, Custard Bun (liu sha bao), Lotus Bun (lian rong pau), Steamed Pork Ribs with Fermented Beans, Har Gow (prawn dumpling), Veggie Dumpling

Har Gow - this was not bad, succulent prawns, skin wasnt too chewy/hard either

Custard Bun - do note that this one DOES NOT flow haha. There are some that doesnt flow and some that do, and its meant to be like that. So if you're the type that likes the flow, this is not for you! Unless they've changed it!

Ingredients for Noodle Bar

Noodle Bar

They have a VERY wide and extensive noodle bar selection imo!

Types of noodles:
Hor fun
Bee Tai Mak (!!)
Yellow Noodles
Fine Vermicelli
Mee Sua (!!)
Laksa Noodles
Wanton Egg Noodles

Types of Broth:
Chicken broth
Curried-Spiced Aromatic Coconut Gravy (aka what you have for laksa!)

They have many types of chili available as well: green chili, chili padi, sambal etc.


My mom asked for very little, hence the small portion!

We all gave this a miss somehow haha idk why! Do try and lemme know your comments!

What you have in the top row:

Chili Chocolate Pudding

Forgot what else there was! But about 2 more small desserts there

Chocolate Cake

This wasnt too sweet, quite an average chocolate cake I'd say though it sure looks pretty!

Mango Pavlova

Plum Tart

This was good!!!! Really liked this. Nice tart crust too. Can rival Basilico's (Basilico's wins it by a little though haha)

Background - butter cake with coconut frosting
Foreground - carrot cake

Love how christmas-y this looks!


Ice Cream!!!!

Mango, Maple walnut, Strawberry, Chocolate, Lime & Lemon Sorbet, and forgot whats the last one!

Assorted Toppings for Ice Cream

Bread & Butter Pudding

Waffle Station!
Freshly Made Waffle
Berry coulis | Vanilla Sauce | Maple Syrup

Crepe Station (Right beside it)
Freshly Made Crepe
With more sauces there to choose from!

Freshly Made Waffle with Ice Cream

The chef there was so nice :) He first asked if I wanted any syrup and I said yes, maple. Then he asked if I wanted ice cream! So I got rum raisin and mango!

Do note that the 2 slices of waffle shown here is 1 order of waffles! 

Waffle - only very slightly crispy, thin batter, dont really like it
Maple Walnut Ice Cream - this was gooooood! Love the crunchy walnut bits and the slightly sweet maple syrup taste in the background, yum :)
Mango - this was quite good too

Plum Tart - as I've mentioned is good
Chocolate Cake - as I've mentioned too
Carrot Cake - not much spice taste, cant really tell its carrot cake! Slightly sweet too

Chocolate Truffle!

More Chocolate Truffles!


Even more variety of chocolate truffle!

Green Tea Chocolate

Really loved this! Took more servings of this :) Its texture is in between a chocolate truffle and a mochi?? Its kinda soft actually! Nice milky green tea taste!!

Chili Chocolate Pudding | Mango Pudding | Red Bean Matcha Pudding

Chili Chocolate is okay, slightly spicy only, dont expect lava cake flow haha

Mango pudding is not bad, passable

Red Bean Matcha was bad haha

Choc Truffle w Alcohol!

Not sure which alcohol but it was gooooooood :) Their truffles are good hehe

Hazelnut Choc Truffle

This is like ferrero rocher! Super good :) Look at that hazelnut!

Freshly made Crepe w Bananas and Maple Walnut Ice Cream

Now this was GOOOOOOD. The crepe was SO crispy and so yummy!! Just thin enough but thick enough to wrap around my banana and ice cream!! Its so big cos there's a whole chopped up banana inside there! Do note that you can ask for bananas to be added to your crepe ok! And the ice cream hehe, so nice till I had to have another scoop :) Finished this on my own and everyone was so shocked cos I ate this rightttt at the end when we were all super full. Lucky I went to give this a try and not give up aft the unassuming waffle!

General comments about the buffet
  • VERY value for money! I feel that at $55++ its super duper value for money for the spread + quality that you get!!!! Really feel like its super worthwhile!
  • Do not like it that there are no labels
  • Service can be a bit slow sometimes - never refill water/clear plates
  • Service v. friendly though and courteous, willing to help
Note: there is NO complimentary parking unless you are a Pan Pacific Privileged member and has spent >$150 at the outlet! (Feel that this is kinda absurd, almost all of the oth hotel restaurants I know provide you w complimentary parking!)

OK just a disclaimer in case anyone suspects anything, this is NOT an invited food tasting nor am I working for the restaurant/hotel group!!! I am still a student and I paid for my own food and went there on my own accord!

Breakfast (6:00am to 11:00am)
Adult - $48++, Child - $32++

Lunch (12:00 noon to 2:30pm)
Adult - $48++, Child - $32++

Dinner (6:30pm to 10:30pm)
Adult - $55++, Child - $39++

Pan Pacific Hotel (the one near Marina Square!)
