If you are looking for a sumptuous spread of buffet, in particular korean buffet, you should never miss Todai located conveniently at Marina Bay Sands. Though labelled as ‘Korean’ Buffet, Todai is actually a buffet restaurant packed with an enticing selection of Seafood and International cuisine.

Todai introduces 12 sections in their buffet line, some of which are Churrasco, tepanyaki, sashimi, Korean cuisine, Japanese sushi and Chinese cooked food.

The volcano actually resembles the Shiok Maki from Koh Grill.

And of course, the free flow of Korean Ginseng Chicken Soup that are forever running out because it’s a wholesome bowl of nutrients from the Ginseng, Chestnut, Ginkgo nut that are all from Korea.

My other favorite section at Todai is none other than the Churrasco section. 

The Churrasco section has a wide variety of meat for you to enjoy as well.

Most of the meat are prepared to medium rare. You can actually request for a longer simmer if you do not prefer meat that are too raw.

One of the recommendation by the Todai’s management is their specialty – Korean Fish Pancake

Sea Eel BBQ

 Hands down to the juicy and meaty Sea Eel BBQ. The Sea Eel taste great as it is coated with tasty BBQ sauce, but I personally didn’t like how it was packed with soft and tiny fish bone although it is consumable.

Apparently, restaurants over at Korean would display fresh and much much bigger squid on the seafood section. Not sure if Singaporeans would be scared away by this!

 Don’t forget to save room for the dessert. Half of it are delectable delicacies but some of it are really nothing much to rave about.

Some of the worthy dessert to try are New York Cheesecake, Mango cheesecake and Strawberry Cheesecake
