I’ll be honest: Stellar‘s Sunday Wine Lust brunch is not for everyone.
If you are not into alcohol (who doesn’t????), skip this. With free flow wines and sparkling, it’s not called “wine lust” for nothing. Every week, different wine and wine makers are showcased and guests are invited to sample up to a selection of 12 different wines. Chosen favourites can also be bought at wholesale price tags!
If you prefer a big buffet spread, I think hotel buffets are more suitable and value for money. There’s not even a cold raw seafood section as the focus is on a la minute and live cooking stations. Really depends on what you are looking for: quality or quantity?
If you don’t care much for spectacular views during your dining experience, I suggest you close off this window now. At $110++ per person, brunch is pricey and part of that is the location. 62 levels above ground, fabulous views and ambience (my BFF’s friend received her marriage proposal there!) guaranteed!
The carefully crafted food menu features a decadent spread with trademark highlights such as Stellar’s signature sushi station (quite a limited selection though), smoked salmon benedict (predictably my favourite!) and fresh truffle pasta (I wish I can steal the whole knob of black truffle from the chef haha). K, this blog’s unofficial meat taster, was in charge of devouring the fragrant claypot chicken rice, bloody wagyu rump and assorted cuts from the meat carvery. Brunch ended nicely with a gorgeous dessert platter (all the sweet little cakes were sooooo good!!) and we left with the conclusion that artisanal cheese is totally wasted on us (we just can’t appreciate them, sorry).
