Singapore Food ‘A la Carte Buffet Lunch’ At Champions Sports Bar

Ken, a fellow Malaysian introduced Champions Sports Bar to us, a group of Malaysians, quite a while ago. At that time, Champions was still located at President Palace Hotel, at Sukhumvit Soi 11.

Never judge a book by its cover, and never judge a restaurant by its name.

“We screen the sporting events that you don’t want to miss.” Champions is a watering hole, football and beer, for football fans. An unassuming place for Singaporean food. I remember from my 2 visits of their decent Singapore laksa, and also good sambal (a spicy condiment) for their nasi lemak.

They have since then, relocated to the new Suan Lum Night Bazaar at Ratchadapisek, just a stone’s throw away from our home. Staff told us something about change of hotel ownership, which I assumed had an impact on their lease.

On a lazy Sunday afternoon, bf and I walked over to Champions for some hearty hawker-style food from home .. Singapore food is also similar to Malaysia, but not as good as ours, of course lah. Can’t help but taking the piss out of them *chuckle*

Our initial plan was to order from their a la carte menu, but we couldn’t resist the irresistible Sunday Lunch promotion deal. Applicable every Sunday from 12pm to 3pm. They charge 295 baht per head, just additional 95 baht from their a  la carte menu for the 2 dishes (nasi lemak and char kway teow) we had in mind.

All-you-can-eat, order as much as you want. You need to place order with staff, and the food is cooked to order … I thought it’s excellent, and I prefer this to buffet spread table-style. Staff told us that portion is smaller than their ala carte menu.

We ended with 5 dishes for sharing – nasi lemak, char kway teow, Singapore laksa, mee goreng and Hainanese chicken rice. I like char kway teow the most, but I also like the Hainanese chicken rice. The latter, I ate on behalf of a friend back home, who was craving for chicken rice.

It was bf’s first visit, and commented that the food is good. Like authentic-good. He can tell good Singapore/Malaysia food already!

Travel opens up a whole new world, which is cliche but true. I am a strong advocate for independent and solo travel. I was born and raised in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia but now live in Bangkok, Thailand, resulted from a chance encounter in 2009 with my why-are-you-Thai bf. I am now split between two countries. One country for my bf, another for the family, for the occasional weekend together.
