Senso’s revamped Sunday Prosecco Brunch

[Media Invite]

Hands up those of you who would love luxuriating in a long Sunday brunch complete with free-flow bubbly? I would too, but such affairs are usually in excess of $100 especially if you are talking about hotel buffets. Here’s a place that comes in at just under $100++ ($98++), not much cheaper but every little bit helps right? The price must be alright because it was completely full indoors when I was there.

Check out Senso Ristorante & Bar, whose Sunday Prosecco Brunch includes a buffet spread of antipasti (such as Normandy Oysters, Prawns, Italian Cold Cuts) and desserts. There are also a few mains to choose from, with no limit on the number of orders. There is also a live station every week, ranging from a Raclette Cheese station to a Roast Beef carving station.

So why Senso? If you want a Prosecco Brunch with a strong focus on Italian food, this is the place to be. They have a huge selection of Italian antipasti such as cold cuts, carpaccio, caprese and lots more. The ambience is also very nice as the restaurant is housed in a cosy heritage shop house. In fact this unique location is one of the reasons Senso has been on my radar for so many years.

Kakuida’s Kurozu : Healthy yet delicious donuts, it’s true!

[Sponsored Post]

If you walk past the newly opened Kakuida’s unassuming storefront at Icon Village opposite Tanjong Pagar MRT station, you might be forgiven for thinking that this is yet another shop selling donuts and tea drinks. But the key difference here is that every single item sold at Kakuida’s is infused with a dose of healthy Japanese black vinegar, aka Kurozu in Japanese.

Kurozu has been around for more than 200 years, dating back to the Edo period (1800s). The health benefits of kurozu include:

Hai Tien Lo 24 Claypot Specialities Promotion–It’s back again!

[Media Invite]

Fans of Pan Pacific Hotel’s Hai Tien Lo Claypot dishes will be glad to know that the claypot promotion is back again, but only from now until 31 August 2018. The last time it was rolled out was in 2016, so don’t delay or you might have to wait another couple of years. This time round, you can choose any 2 claypot dishes for $38.80, a few dollars more expensive than back in 2016. It’s actually not a bad way to sample a variety of dishes that Hai Tien Lo has to offer, as compared to ordering from the usual menu.

Hai Tien Lo - Claypot Specialties

I had the opportunity to sample around 10 of the 24 claypot specialities, and I have to applaud Executive Chef Lai Tong Ping because I liked all of the dishes I tried. If I had to choose, I would say that the Claypot Pork Shoulder with Assorted Bell Peppers in Truffle Oil is probably my favourite. The pork shoulder cut has always been my go to cut when I cook myself, as it is meaty and very tender and I’m sure this was the reason why Chef Lai used this cut in the dish as well. Tender pork plus crisp bell peppers with just a touch of truffle oil, I could have finished the entire claypot myself.
