The Hilton Sunday Champagne Brunch just gotten more ‘high-level’ with new inclusions for this quality hotel buffet, yet maintained at the same value-for-money pricing.
Here is what you can expect: 8 interactive live stations: unlimited rounds of fresh seafood, charcoal grilled prime cuts, foie gras, over 30 imported cheeses (including a Raclette station), and a 6-metre long showcase of desserts from D9 Cakery!
I vividly remember visiting the Sunday Champagne a few months back. Upon returning, I cannot help by notice that the variety, energy, and buzz have gone a few notches higher.
Here are two tips before I forget: Do not miss visit the cheese room in the corner of the room; and huge selection of the D9 dessert bar outside.
Not sure what to expect? Here are some 10 of the highlights at the Hilton Sunday Champagne Brunch:
1. Grilled Meats
Hilton’s Opus Bar & Grill is known for its prime-cuts that are aged in-house, and grilled over the open-flame charcoal grill.
THE PLACE for grilled meats.
Some of the recommendations include Barbeque Jamon Iberico Pork Ribs, US Prime Ribs, Herb Roasted Lamb Rack and Roasted Whole Sakura Chicken.
My gym-going routine made me more in-tuned to having proteins, and the roast chicken (drumstick for me) was fab with succulent, well-marinated meat.
2. Seafood Bar
I also realised that this Sunday brunch has offered a wider selection of “live’ fresh seafood.
Other than Maine Lobsters, you can expect Yabbies (not commonly seen around in buffets), Alaskan King Crabs (YES), Tiger Prawns, Half Shell Scallop, Black Mussels and Pacific Clams.
3. Oyster Station
Live-shucked oysters from Australia, Canada and France, of Fine De Claire, US Oyster, Coffin Bay Oysters.
Some of the concerns you may have could be that oysters are not replenished fast enough. Don’t worry, the quantity here was enough to go around.
4. Cheese Room
Don’t miss this section at the corner. Hilton’s cheese room boasts of one of the biggest selection in Singapore with over 30 imported cheeses from Aorangi Brie, Mimolette, Gouda, to Emmental.
Raclette Cheese, the semi-hard cow’s milk cheese first heated then scrapped off on food, is kind of the IN thing now.
Good news that it is included here.
Having Raclette Cheese ala carte in a restaurant could cost a bomb, or too heavy on the palate as you would need to commit to ordering a portion of the wheel. No such problem in a buffet restaurant, and I think this is a novel inclusion.
You can have the Raclette topped on potatoes, breads and salads, and makes whole lot of difference taste wise.
5. Foie Gras Station
Foie Gras decadence. Not just one way of cooking, but three variations: Mille-Feuille of Foie Gras and Grain Fed Tenderloin; Foie gras with Apple and passion; and Terrine of foie gras with fruit chutney.
6. Egg Station
Cooked a la minute, expect Homemade Scotch egg with Black Truffle Hollandaise Egg and Bacon Cocotte.
7. Pasta Station
Homemade Italian pasta just taste so different from dried pasta – the freshness, the bite, and rich eggy flavour.
The Tagliatelle with Sicilian Sauce was one of my personal highlights of this meal. Simple fare cooked well.
8. Gastronomy Station
This highlight when I visited was this Poached Japanese Ramen with Sous Vide 65 Degree Celsius Sakura Egg with Toasted Sesame, Seaweed, Salmon Roe and Dashi Espuma.
9. Tableside Service
Welcome drink, served tableside. How about a Bloody Mary to start off your leisure Sunday brunch?
10. D9 Cakery Desserts
This is almost literally, an icing on the cake.
The Hilton Sunday Brunch has opened up and included its D9 Cakery right outside as part of the buffet.
D9 Cakery offers an impressive six-meter showcase of decadently delicious cakes, pastries, pralines, macarons, a chocolate fountain and more.
Signature cakes in the shelves included Dulcey Coffee, Caramel Cassis, Matcha Azuki (my favourite), Red Velvet (friend’s favourite), Rainbow Cake (children’s favourite), and Lavender Cake.
For lighter bites, there are custards, flans and tarts, such as Crème Brulee, Crème Caramel, Raspberry Tart, and Lemon Meringue Tart.
Or a colourful range of shooters of Rose Madagascar, Green Tea, Citron, Dark Chocolate, Apple Pistachio, and Chestnut Cassis. Save some room for these.
