The gourmet Sunday Champagne Brunch at The Terrace in Sentosa is an underrated gem that has both a quality spread (features signature dishes of award-winning restaurant The Cliff) and an attractive price tag – $109++ per adult (top up $20++ for free flow wine or $40++ for all-you-can-drink wine and Moët/Chandon champagne). Kids aged 5 to 12 years eat for $79++ (I don’t have kids but honestly, I won’t bring them even if I do, waste of money haha) and it’s available every Sunday from noon to 3pm.
The wide array of food was impressive! The cold seafood selection had oysters, prawns, mussels and omg, I finally had my fair share of lobsters that day! So sweet and meaty that I couldn’t help going back for more. Apparently there was supposed to be crabs too but we didn’t see any. And of course, we also spent a good amount of time at the Japanese section – fresh salmon/maguro sashimi, the usual maki rolls (don’t eat too much rice at buffets!) and there’s even unagi sushi! We didn’t try any of the cheese and charcuterie (not a fan) but the selection looked good, with an assortment of popular cheeses by renowned cheese masters such as Guiffanti from Italy and Phillipe Olivier and Ceneri from France.
Against the backdrop of lush greenery and complete with panoramic sea view are the “live” carving, barbecue and cooked food stations. Expect wagyu beef rump, fat sausages, bloody steaks, dim sum, roast duck and tandoori meats with naans. Foie gras lovers, heads up! There’s also pan-fried foie gras prepared a-la-minute. K could only stomach one piece cuz it was so rich and decadent haha. Oh ya, there’s even an outdoor band serenading the diners amidst the tranquil setting.
My favourite part of the buffet was the gorgeous chocolate room! Once we stepped in, the aroma of chocolate hit us right away. Taking centre stage is a table full of petite cakes, mousses, jellies, brownies, macarons, meringues, pralines and pastries which are baked in-house. Surrounding it are more cakes, white and dark chocolate fondue, a crepe station, and tubs of Häagen-Dazs ice cream. Everything looked so tempting!
I told K that we must try everything and so we did! The chocolate brownies and cakes were the most calories-worthy (skip the fruity ones which were so-so) and each of us had three scoops of ice cream (macadamia ftw!!) with toppings, hehe. To inject an element of fun (and creativity?), there’s a station for us to decorate our own cupcakes! I concede defeat and admit that we are not talented at all haha –> see photos of end result here and here. No wonder cupcakes are so expensive hmm. Anyway, overall I think this is one of the best buffets we’ve tried this year! Both the sweet and savoury tooth were well-satisfied. Will be back!
My thanks to Candice for inviting and making the arrangement!
