I was happy to head back to The Waterfall, this time for their revitalised Sunday brunch concept called “The Brunch” with unlimited servings of appetisers, seafood on ice, salads, cold cuts, assorted cheese, and hearty main courses inspired by Mediterranean flavours.
“The Brunch” is priced at $118++ per adult for brunch only and $158++ for brunch with Taittinger champagne, herb-inspired cocktails and wines. For $198++, you can enjoy the brunch with 2005 Taittinger Brut, Brut Rose champagne, herbs-inspired cocktails and premium wines.
Every week, there will be a rotating menu of special items served à la carte.
I was hoping for some classic comfort breakfast egg dishes like egg benny with smoked salmon (I’m here for brunch what…) but nope, there’s just scotch egg, ponzu glazed scallop, steamed seabass and veggie kebabs… Not terribly exciting to the taste buds.
Every self-respecting buffet will offer fresh seafood and “The Brunch” is no different. There’s an impressive line-up of imported seafood selections at a seafood ice bar located near the entrance. Premium seafood and marine harvest include four types of oysters, maine lobster, hokkaido scallop and spanish mussel, and you must try my favourite, the (cold) curry crab!
The lazy Sunday ended decadently with an assortment of desserts! I love the ‘pick off the shelves’ idea. Peach and raspberry tiramisu, trio of valhrona chocolate mousse, freshly made crêpes, and for health junkies, there’s also yogurt (the PR went “seriously?!” when she spotted K digging into a pot of Emmi raspberry yogurt haha) and seasonal fruits.
For me, the best dessert was no doubt the triple scoops of ice cream! Ginger, lemongrass and pistachio… Bliss on a Sunday!
Special thanks to Josephine for inviting and hosting such a luxurious brunch!
