Halal Buffets in Singapore and Etiquettes We need to Know

Buffets are something that people really enjoy. During events or special celebrations, people usually have buffets because they find it more suitable and convenient. Some people though only eat Halal food, but that’s not a problem because Singapore has restaurants who offer us lunch buffets. Later on, we are going to tell you more about them and about buffet etiquettes too which we really need.

But first, let us introduce one of the most unique halal dining experiences in Singapore. At Bay Hotel Singapore, Indonesian food with a modern twist is served as a lunch buffet.

How to Buffet: A Complete Guide to All-You-Can-Eat Buffet Etiquette

I am a people watcher. Everywhere I go, I have a strange compulsion to observe not only my surroundings, but also what is going on around me. Having just returned from five days in Las Vegas, I had the opportunity to dine at five different buffets, which allowed for a fair amount of people watching. I made many observations that were startling, appalling, and downright baffling. There seems to be something about dining at an all-you-can-eat buffet that brings out the worst of people. The reptilian mind must take over with some people when they are around all of that readily available food.

I make it a point to abide by the social morays set forth in these United States of America as often as possible. To call out a poor showing of etiquette with a sharp, “hey, we’re trying to have a society here!” is not uncommon for me. Some people live in ignorance of the politeness required from all parties involved when communal dining, and for those, I have a list of points I would like to make so that we may all live and dine in harmony. For many, these guidelines are moot. They are the kind of things people may roll their eyes at, while thinking to themselves, “well yeah, no duh.” But I wouldn’t be writing this if I wasn’t so surprised at how many people I saw blatantly ignoring these seemingly obvious guidelines. Read more here.

One important tip given is that we should not get what we cannot finish. It would actually be rude and is a lot of waste if you get a lot of food and wouldn’t eat it all. You actually deserve a penalty for that. Anyways, all those tips and reminder on how to buffet should be applied at all times. Now if you visit one of the buffet restaurants mentioned above or any other buffet restaurants you now know what you have to do and you also have to remind your companions about it.
