Cheap seafood buffets in Singapore below $50
Image adapted from: Eatbook
Buffets aren’t just about eating our favourite food, it’s also about getting our money’s worth - and so many of us swarm to the seafood section the moment we grab our plates.
Given how pricey fresh seafood can be, expansive seafood spreads are more frequently found in atas hotels. But we’ve sussed out a list of affordable, non-hotel seafood buffets for you seafood lovers. Free-flow crabs, lobsters, prawns, and oysters, all under $50? Count me in.

No doubt that Tunglok Seafood is well-established, but their ala carte buffets come at a surprisingly non-exorbitant price tag.
