Carnivore Appetite is one of the 16 or so restaurants situated in the ‘Dining Editions’ area of the Marina Square mall. We had, in one of our recent posts, taken you on a walk-about in this area. Carnivore Appetite was the restaurant that we ended up having lunch in.
It is a fairly large restaurant with a small alfresco lounge area. The decor is done up in a rustic industrial style. As this restaurant operates on a buffet concept, the long food service counter takes pride of place, running down the length of the restaurant. At the centre of the counter is the main attraction – the meat grill. The meats are prepared kebab-style and mounted on skewers. You have a pick of escolar fish, chicken thigh, two kinds of beef (hump and rump) and pork belly. Tip – the beef hump is much better than the rump which was dry and tough.
In addition to the grilled meats, there is also a salad bar and a selection of cooked food such as beef stew, steamed vegetables, mushrooms and pasta. The cooked food was not bad.
At $19.90 per pax for weekday lunch, was this good value for a buffet lunch? For those with a big appetite, it is a good deal especially those upping their protein intake. The food is good but don’t expect gourmet quality. If you are a small eater, then you may want to explore the options available at the Dining Edition further before making your choice as there are many competitively price lunch offerings at this interesting food oasis.
Note – there are different prices for lunch, dinner and weekends. Check their website for latest info.

#Food fact – The Portuguese term “churrasco” refers generally to any cut of meat cooked on a bed of hot coals or using a skillet.
The history of churrasco goes back to the times of the gauchos (cowboys) who had to travel vast distances to herd their cattle.
