I see a lot of places offering “value lunch sets” for around $10, but I always wonder whether the meal would be filling enough or will it leave me hungry in 2 to 3 hours. Fortunately, there are a few places that offer buffets for $10 or less. Here are some of the ones I’ve found.
Adding to the list of budget-friendly buffets (see my previous posts here and here), Javier’s Rotisserie & Salad Bar now offers a $11.90 (nett) salad bar buffet with an add-on main course for an additional $3 (nett). Located at City Square Mall, the buffet is available on weekdays between 11:30am and 5pm, excluding public holidays.
We are now in the Holy Month of Ramadan. During this month, Muslims will fast during daylight hours, starting usually before 6am all the way until about 7:30pm. This is what some refer to as intermittent fasting (IF), which has gained a lot of popularity recently for its health and potential weight loss benefits. I have been practicing IF a few times a week for at least a couple of years now, but I do it at different times, from 7pm all the way until noon the next day (it’s not hard to fast during the hours you’re asleep!). Then once every 2 weeks, I do a complete 30 hour fast, and have nothing but liquids. From my personal experience, though it has not always been easy, IF has been very helpful in terms of health maintenance, frugality, and I would even say, spirituality. Here’s why:
Where can you get a buffet, a private room with a plush sofa and big screen TV, free wifi, and free entertainment for less than $15? Did I mention that the buffet also comes with free flow coffee, tea, soft drinks, and ice cream(!), and that you can enjoy up to 4 hours of entertainment? It’s also a great place to go on a date. Adding to the list of other budget-friendly buffets (see my previous posts here and here), here’s where you’ll find this one…
Texas Chicken will be giving out 500 sets of their 1-piece spicy chicken meal on 30 April from 10am to 1pm in eight of their outlets (Expo, NEX, Causeway Point, Changi City Point, the Star Vista, VivoCity, Great World City, and Westgate).

If you happen to live or work near a McDonalds, they will be giving away more than 100,000 Egg McMuffins tomorrow, 17th March, on National Breakfast Day on a first-come, first-serve basis. All franchises will be giving out 1,000 Egg McMuffins, except for those at KKH Hospital, Yew Tee (including Yew Tee Kiosk), Tampines Interchange Kiosk, Lucky Chinatown, Clementi Avenue 3, Changi Airport T2 Transit and Science Centre Singapore.
The history of National Breakfast Day, a day that celebrates what some believe is “the most important meal”, dates all the way back to…… (more…)
This is a continuation from my last post, which included my favorite Chinese and Vegetarian buffets that were all priced around $15 or less. Here, I will list other buffets that are similarly priced. (more…)
While these buffets may not have the same offerings or variety that a buffet at a five-star hotel would have, you can still find great food, decent variety, and be able to have your fill without breaking the bank. You won’t need a voucher or a 1-for-1 credit card promotion, as these buffets are all around $15 or less. For some other buffets, such as “The Line” at Shangri-La or “Carousel” at Royal Plaza, you will have to spend three to four times the amount, but that doesn’t usually result in three to four times better quality in food.
