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!

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!

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.

Marriott Cafe– Seafood Extravaganza buffet with over 50 seafood dishes!

Situated conveniently outside the Orchard MRT station, Marriott Cafe has long been one of the go to places for buffets. But just for a short time only until 15 March 2017, Marriott Cafe will be offering the Ocean to Plate : A Seafood Extravaganza buffet featuring over 50 seafood dishes! If you are a seafood lover, you have to check out this buffet. Some of the highlights include:

– Fresh seafood on ice including Boston Lobsters, oysters, crabs etc

– Salmon Sashimi

– Seafood Bouillabaisse

– Seafood Skewers

– Salted Egg Prawns

That doesn’t mean that they’ve hidden the meats either. There will still be a live carving station offering Roast Pork Saddle, roast Prime Rib of beef and more. The salad bar is pretty impressive too, as there are various salad leaves to choose from instead of 1 generic pile of leaves. And you must check out the superb chocolate cake from the dessert section, it’s one of the best chocolate cakes I have eaten! Scroll down for all the pictures.

Had to just post a picture of this decadent chocolate cake. It was love at first sight, and tasted as good as it looks.
