Senso Ristorante & Bar Moët & Chandon Courtyard Brunch

Senso Moet & Chandon The Courtyard Brunch  (15)

You may be familiar with Senso’s Italian Prosecco Brunch on Sundays which I blogged about some months back. In addition to this, Senso has now introduced a Moët & Chandon Brunch, to be held every quarterly. These are the special themes (later months tentative) : 

  • October 2018 – Imperial Brut (by bottle)
  • December 2018 – Ice Imperial —> 2nd December, it’s this weekend!
  • March 2019 – Imperial Brut (Magnum)
  • June 2019 – Ice Imperial 
  • September 2019 – Moet Rose
  • December 2019 – Moet Grand Vintage

The Moët & Chandon Brunch will feature a Pop-up Champagne Bar in the Courtyard, with free flow of Champagne, red & white wines and beers. If it’s too much work to visit the Champagne bar, do not fret because the waiters come by often to refill your glasses anyway. Senso’s Italian buffet of salads, antipasti, hot mains, pastas, desserts and other Italian classics will be available. And if you are in a party mood, you will like the House Music by Senso’s resident DJ Donat’. Check out this video taken during October’s Courtyard Brunch, it looks like the party atmosphere is going strong! You don’t have to sit in the courtyard though. We sat in air-conditioned comfort indoors. Smile

The next Moët & Chandon Brunch will be held on 2nd December from 11.30am to 3pm and there are but a few seats left. $108++ per person for free-flow alcohol or $68++ for no alcohol. Scroll down for some photos and a video taken at the 1st ever Moët & Chandon Brunch back in October.

Pan Pacific Edge Restaurant Theatrical Sunday Champagne Brunch Extravaganza

A couple of weeks back, the Partner and I celebrated an early Christmas by going for a Sunday Champagne Brunch at Pan Pacific Edge Restaurant. I have never attended a Sunday Super Brunch before. I’ve always wanted to, but it’s just so expensive! In the grand scheme of things, a Sunday Super Brunch buffet (a few hotels offer this) is the most expensive buffet you will find, costing well over a hundred dollars, and sometimes nearing $200. In this case, because it was the Christmas period, and because there was UNLIMITED Champagne and cocktails, it was on the high end at $179++, per pax!

But what can I say, it was the most festive and most rambunctious event / buffet I have ever been to. And it’s longer than other buffets too at 4 hours, instead of the usual 3. But you know the 4 hours passed SO QUICKLY! There were loads of Ang Mohs out in huge groups celebrating Christmas. And when Ang Mohs + alcohol meet, it makes for a very jovial atmosphere. Many had even brought along their Christmas hats and reindeer antlers. I wanted to bring mine too but I forgot!

Scroll down for more pictures of the Champagne brunch. But first up, some pictures of Edward at his first brunch buffet! Kids under 4 dine free!

Toddler playing with utensils

Edward had a great time at Pan Pacific hotel. We were there 1 hour early to take pictures everywhere! He loves hotels because he loves running around and climbing onto the soft comfy sofas. Here’s a picture of him playing peekaboo with the utensils!

Man-Cakes?! You have to visit LeVeL33 Craft Brewery and Restaurant to try them!

I am so smitten by these Man-Cakes that I had to just mention them upfront. Now is this creative or what? Mini pancakes served in beer mugs, with generous dollops of clotted cream. And did I mention bacon, because bacon just makes things taste better. You will laugh when ordering it, and it will be fun to eat too.

LeVeL33 - Bacon Man-Cakes (Banana, Maple, Clotted Cream) $15 (2)

Bacon Man-Cakes (Banana, Maple, Clotted Cream) $15

And I think the Man-Cakes epitomises the philosophy of LeVel33, which is to establish itself as a relaxing and fun place to dine at, especially on the weekends. There are so many items on the menu I want to try just because they sound so interesting! Btw, the person holding the beer mugs is Executive Chef Jimi Tegerdine himself. Chef Jimi has been working in the culinary world since 2001, and has had experience in numerous locations such as The Relais de Coche in South of France, Wagamama and Cho Gao in Australia. At Cho Gao, his role was to give a fresh interpretation of traditional Asian dishes from Thailand, Vietnam, India, China, Indonesia and Japan. And you will see these Asian influences again in the dishes that are served at LeVel33.

Monti Sunday Brunch – Unlimited brunch ala-carte style, eat until you drop!

Catalunya at Fullerton Pavilion which opened to much fanfare a couple of years back has closed, and in its place is now Monti by the 1-Group, which also houses other lifestyle brands such as 1-Altitude, 1-Rochester, UNA, 1-University, The Garage, The Summerhouse and 1-Host. Catalunya was sensational, not just because of the amazing food, but also because of the exuberant atmosphere. I was quite sad to hear that it had closed actually! You have to read my review of Catalunya here as well as watch the video where they deliberately smash plates onto the floor! So I was curious to know if Monti would live up to the high standards that Catalunya had set.

Monti Sunday Brunch (6)

I had the opportunity to check out Monti’s Sunday Brunch which is an Italian-style ala-carte buffet featuring the 1st ever Amp your Mojito and make your own Bloody Mary drinks booth.

Monti Sunday Brunch - Frutti di Mare (1)

When you first arrive, a humongous seafood platter will greet you, comprising all the goodies of the sea, aka Alaskan king crab, tiger prawns, tuna tataki, salmon sashimi, fine de Claire oyster, mussels and clams. The menu says that the seafood platter is limited to 1 per table, however you can still order more oysters, tuna tataki, tiger prawns and salmon, so really the only big ticket item that you can’t have refills is the Alaskan king crab.

Botanist (Cafe) – Pretty food, pretty plants, pretty good

I have been craving cafe food lately so I went back to look at my old pictures and realised that I have not been blogging about cafes in Singapore for the longest time! So to make amends, you will be seeing more cafe posts in the coming weeks! Hold on tight because there’s going to be a deluge of pancakes, eggs Benedicts, waffles, grain bowls, hot chocolates and flat whites coming at you! I’m sure you won’t mind, would you?

Botanist -  (8)

Visited Botanist late last year when my friend was still pregnant and on early maternity leave. Run by the same guys who also run Pacamara Boutique Coffee Roasters and Alchemist, Botanist is probably well known in the cafe hopping scene because of its garden-like decor. Aside from Instagram opportunities, it is quite soothing to see the touches of greenery all around.

We had intended to visit more cafes but she popped soon after, about 2 weeks after this picture was taken! One hardly thinks about it but there’s a lot of nice cafe food that you can’t have while you’re pregnant. Think coffee/caffeinated drinks, dishes with runny yolks, smoked salmon, salad…. the list can be long depending on how strict you want to be!

Botanist - French Toast (fried brioche, rhubarb berry marmalade, fresh berries, almond flakes, poached pear, vanilla ice-cream) $18 (1)
