RISE restaurant | Celebrate Oktoberfest with Barbeque Thursdays

RISE restaurant is an international buffet restaurant located at the lobby of Tower 1, Marina Bay Sands Hotel. I have not tried the restaurant before, so it was a good opportunity when I got to try their buffet spread last Thursday. In celebration of Oktoberfest, RISE restaurant has added an outdoor barbeque station for patrons to enjoy! The outdoor barbeque will be available every Thursday for the month of October. You can look forward to many different kinds of grilled sausages such as juicy bratwurst, snail sausage, smoked pork and garlic sausage, cheeser krainer among other regular buffet favourites! The sausages are quite flavorful and there are six different kinds of mustards for you to try! Goes very well with the sausages I must say. I am usually not a sausage fan but those sausages were really good.
