Monti @ Fullerton Pavilion – The Perfect Sunday Weekend Buffet Brunch

If you are looking the perfect luxury Sunday weekend buffet brunch, this is it.

Located at Fullerton Pavilion, Monti is one of Marina Bay’s latest dining and lifestyle destination, offering modern Italian food, evening live band with jazz-inspired cocktails and stunning view to match. What’s even better now is that Monti has introduced their new brunch by the bay concept every Sunday with superb Italian breakfast menu.

Egg Salmon Florentine - Monti

Egg Salmon Florentine – Monti

Though it is a buffet, it is served in ala-crate style. You would have to order it and they will prepare for you immediately. Which, I find it better as the quality of the food won’t be compromised. 

Egg Salmon Florentine was amazing! Served with Sour Dough Bread, Baby Spinach, Smoked Salmon and drizzled with Dill Hollandaise to top it off, you certainly won’t be disappointed with the standard here in Monti.

No brunch would be completed without eggs. Choose from poached eggs to omelet, I’m sure they will make it to perfection!

Foie Gras on Toast - Monti

Foie Gras on Toast – Monti

Indulge yourself with the choice of Foie Gras on Toast. Try it and you will love it!

French Toast - Monti

French Toast – Monti

Be delighted with their French Toast! Served with Honey Cinnamon Mascarpone Cheese, Caramelized Banana and a scatter of Fresh Berries, it was decent. However, I would very much prefer a wider range of selections for the topping. Imagine having French Toast with Caramelized Banana and Chocolate Syrup. Yum! Nevertheless, it was delish.

Risotto Live Station - Monti

Risotto Live Station – Monti

Fancy for Risotto? Order their famous Truffle Risotto and be intrigued with a fancy live show. The Risotto Live Station will showcase on the finishing of your risotto in a parmesan cheese wheel in front of you and your guests.

Monti's Famous Tuffle Risotto

Monti’s Famous Truffle Risotto

The risotto was very rich and creamy. Due to parmesan cheese, it was a little pungent. Which, could be good or bad depending on your taste bud. I do like it, however.

Monti's Dessert Table

Monti’s Dessert Table

Check out Monti’s Dessert Table made in-house by their pastry chef after your hearty meal too as these desserts are also part of the buffet. I’m always excited when it comes to dessert, looking at this table makes me even more elevated.

Lemon Rosemary Tartlets

Lemon Rosemary Tartlets

Miniature Lemon Rosemary Tartlets looks indulging and refreshing! It was quite balanced with a twist of Rosemary in the crust. Yet, I personally still prefer it to be sourer.

Chocolate Cake

Chocolate Cake

Rich and decadent Chocolate Cake. Served with fresh berries, they were intensely moist.

Portico Host – Instagrammable Weekend Brunch (Labrador Park MRT)

Portico Host

Portico Host

If you are looking for a perfect weekend brunch with your family and friends, you have come the right place! Portico Host has recently launched their new brunch menu! Only available during the weekends so make sure to check it out. Not only that you get to chose an array of specialty dishes from their new menu, the place is also insta worthy! 

Craving a good classic french toast? You can try out their Brioche French Thick Toast here at Portico Host. Served with their in-house Mixed Berries Comport, you really can feel that the difference between ready-made syrup and homemade style. If you ain’t a berry fan, you also could opt for Mascarpone Cheese or Maple Syrup. But in my option, I personally feel that you should give their Mixed Berries Comport a try.

Fluffy Hotcake

Fluffy Hotcake

I’m amazed that they are able to produce such a lovely huge and Fuffy Hotcakes and am loving it! This cake serve up to 4 people, it is really huge! I was surprised that it wasn’t dense at all, I doubt you could get such a gigantic pancake elsewhere. Definitely very Instagrammable!

Wagyu Beef Burger

Wagyu Beef Burger

If you prefer something savory, you could try out their Wagyu Beef Burger with Japanese Seaweed French Fries. I really enjoyed the french fries and Japanese seaweed seasoning!

Host Big Breakfast Pan

Host Big Breakfast Pan

Want to have Big Breakfast instead? Go for their Host Big Breakfast Pan then! Their big breakfast consists of bacon, sausage, eggs, fresh tomato and herbs, mushrooms fricassee, brioche toast, and roasted potatoes. I love their roasted potatoes, even though it is so simple, it is so comforting. What a feast!

Nonya Crepe

Nonya Crepe

They also tried to recreate traditional taste with a modern twist with this Nonya Crepe. This dish reminds me of Nonya Kueh Dadar. Combining familiar taste like pandan and coconut cream with vanilla gelato, it is a good start. Yet, I’m not a big fan of the texture. Nevertheless, I am not a big fan of the traditional Nonya Kueh Dadar anyway.

Portico Host

Portico Host

Another worthy item to mention is their Granola. Delicious maple-sweetened Greek yogurt with crispy hearty oats, nuts, and a generous amount of fruit toppings, it is light and refreshing. 

Portico Host

Portico Hosti

The place is very instagrammable, especially if you wanna look chic. So, make sure to wear something bold if you are going there. Who knows? You may the next fashion statement! But, do note that the new brunch menu items are only available during the weekends!

The Twenty Cavan @ Cavan Rd (Lavender MRT)

the.twenty.cavan

the.twenty.cavan

Located at Cavan Road, the.twenty.cavan is a new restaurant & bar that features Asian Fusion dishes that are certainly special and unique. The interior is based on a rustic theme and you will certainly feel like a hipster when dining in there. Yet, you will still get that exquisite feel.

Spicy Mango

Spicy Mango

Though the restaurant focuses on serving a wide variety of beers and wines, I wasn’t feeling good so I opted for their non-alcoholic drinks instead. Spicy Mango was recommended by one of their bartenders and I certainly pleased with that. Served with fresh mint leaves and mangoes, it was very refreshing and revitalizing. However, the mango cubes will a little on the tart side. Still, it wasn’t a problem with me as I enjoyed it.

Garden Green Salad

Garden Green Salad

We started it off with some appetizers. The Garden Green Salad consist of pan-fried prawns, cashew nuts, fresh berries and green chili dressing. I was definitely amazed by the unusual taste it gave me when I had my first bite.  I like the fact that they paired the hearty leaves with dragonfruit and goji berries as they marry well together.

Mushroom Skewers, Shiitake mushrooms, Deep-fried Soft Shell Crab with Curry Chicken Floss, Quad Seafood

Mushroom Skewers, Shiitake mushrooms, Deep-fried Soft Shell Crab with Curry Chicken Floss, Quad Seafood

You get a choice of three starters or four at a selected price. The platter I had have four different appetizers, Mushroom Skewers which comprises peppercorn-flavoured Portobello and Shiitake mushrooms, Deep-fried Soft Shell Crab with curry chicken floss and Quad Seafood which comprises a top shell, scallop, prawn, baby octopus tossed with mint hot bean sauce served with jellyfish.

Deep-fried Soft Shell Crab with curry chicken floss was one of my favorites among it. Though it may sound very freakish it was actually really good!

Red Rice Braised Pork Ribs

Red Rice Braised Pork Ribs

As I mentioned above just now that they feature Asian Fusion items, my first main course was Red Rice Braised Pork Ribs. If you know the Hakka chicken dish made with red glutinous rice wine lees, this is Chef Andrew’s pork ribs version. To be honest, I’m never a big fan of pork ribs and this taste more like the western version of char siew to me.

I’m a big lover of the Hakka chicken dish and char siew rice itself, but the Red Rice Braised Pork Ribs is just weird for me. That being said, I feel that there is some other mains worth coming for!

Canton Roast Chicken

Canton Roast Chicken

Good classic Roasted Chicken with black rice. You can’t find black rice in many places so I’m really surprised and contented that they chose that as the staple for this dish. Also commonly known as the Emperor’s Rice, it is extremely high in antioxidants, vitamins and very nutrition! Sure it’s going to be a hearty meal.

Chicken Galangal Rice Bowl

Chicken Galangal Rice Bowl

Chicken Galangal Rice Bowl is another very hearty main that serves with lots of assorted greens and black rice. This rice bowl was one of my favorite, simple clean eating, yet still so good! 

Cavan Breakfast

Cavan Breakfast

Thick brioche with bacon, pork bratwurst, sauteed button mushrooms and scrambled eggs. The eggs were well made, it’s still gooey and soft. Overall, a very typical big breakfast.

Crispy Fish & Chips

Crispy Fish & Chips

I really liked their version of Fish and Chips as they have used Tilapia fish. The best part was that they had left the skin on, making it more flavorful. Their fish batter isn’t the same as the typical fish and chips batter, I’m not sure what type of flour and ingredients they have used for their fish batter but it was quite good and well-seasoned!

Pumpkin Yam Puree

Pumpkin Yam Puree

Pumpkin Yam Puree with Coconut Cream. This is a traditional dessert with a modern twist of the Teochew Orh Nee. It actually has aloe vera and pandan juice mixed into the pumpkin and yam puree to make it more special. Orh Nee lovers should definitely give it a try!

Lemon Pudding with Mixed Berries

Lemon Pudding with Mixed Berries

I always like to have a refreshing dessert to clean my palate after a delightful feast. Paired with pureed mixed berries, the pudding was lightful tart! It almost felt like I was having some really good creamy yogurt! This Lemon Pudding with Mixed Berries is the way to go.

To sum up, I think they really put in the effort to make something special and extraordinary. If you are around the area, why not pop by to check this place out? They have a great rustic ambiance that will make you feel like you are in a cozy back alley.

Full Platter

Full Platter

Recently, Nando’s have launched a brand-new flavor, Mango & Lime! I can’t believe it pairs well and tastes so zingy delicious! It is refreshingly sweet and zesty, great for people who can’t take the heat at all! The new Mango & Lime is set to bring a new dimension to our range of PERi-PERi flavors to suit Singaporean’s taste buds. This interesting mix of refreshing flavors is a sure-winner for you and chicken lovers!

Citrus Bliss

Citrus Bliss

I got to try out one of their Designer Dinks, Citrus Bliss. It is a combination of Mint Syrup, with Grapefruit Juice and Sprite. Refreshing sweet and carbonated drink to mark the start of my chicken feast!

PERi-PERi sauces

PERi-PERi sauces

If you have been to Nando’s, you know that you get to pair your chicken with their PERi-PERi sauces!

PERi-PERi Soup with Chicken

PERi-PERi Soup with Chicken

PERi-PERi Soup with Chicken, your typical Cream Soup with a twist of spice. Served with grilled Garlic Roll, it was a little different than what I was expecting and it goes even better with their PERi-PERi sauces! 

Espetada

Espetada

Espetada (essentially a very long chicken stick) is a fun and delicious way of having Nando’s Marinated Chicken Thighs.  Served with 2 REG sides, it will be a showstopper for your evening meal and a great way to entertain your family and friends as you get to help them with the chicken.NandoNan

Tangy Lemon Tart

Tangy Lemon Tart

To end the meal, I got to try out their new dessert, Tangy Lemon Tart. It was a so good because the tart has a balance of tartness and sweetness. I have personally tried many and this was one of the best! The crust was also very buttery, it is something I would come back again for!

KUVO Singapore

KUVO Singapore

My friend and I got to visit KUVO Singapore to try out their new Seafood Pot, Seafood Pot SocialLite. Situated along the streets of Orchard Road, KUVO is a lifestyle dining concept by TCC. the restaurant offers not only dining but bar, vine lounge and even a gift shop!

Truffle Fries

Truffle Fries

We started it with their classic Truffle Fries. My friend felt that the scent of the truffle was just right, yet I feel that it certainly can be stronger!

Melon Mangosteen Fruit Tea

Melon Mangosteen Fruit Tea

I was recommended to their out their Fruit Tea and indeed, it was very pleasant! I ordered Melon Mangosteen Fruit Tea. Though it sounds exotic, it was sweet-smelling and inviting. I really love it! You got to try it out!

Bar

Seafood PotSocialLite

Seafood Pot SocialLite

The showstopper for this meal was KUVO’s new Seafood Pot, Seafood Pot SocialLite. It’s a sharing pot that was meant for 2 to 3 pax. You get to choose 4 different types of sauce base, White Wine Garlic Chilli, Bonito Broth, Spicy Chorizo Tomato, or Brandy Beurre Blanc.

We chose the Brandy Beurre Blanc sauce for our base. It was creamy and delightful! The aroma of the Brandy was certainly strong enough, but not too overpowering that will make you feel nausea. 

Make sure to add-on their in-house artisan bread to go with the sauce! It will be so satisfying!

Vine Lounge

Vine Lounge

KUVO’s Vine Lounge looks classy and sophisticated, isn’t?

Belacan Crispy Wings with Sambal Belacan Dip

Belacan Crispy Wings with Sambal Belacan Dip

We ended it off with their Belacan Crispy Wings with Sambal
Belacan Dip. If you are a spicy lover, you got to give it a try! The Sambal dipping sauce will sure to make your mouth on fire!

Receive a bottle of White Wine or Moscato with any Pot SocialLite purchased! Limited daily, while stock lasts.

The Seafood Pot SocialLite will be available until the end of January 2017, subject to changes.

All in all, it was definitely a lavish experience. The ambiance was very elegant and posh. I enjoyed my time there and it’s certainly is a place to go if you are looking to celebrate a very special occasion, or trying to find a soothing place to catch up with someone.

Suzette @ Esplanade – The Picnic Basket Concept

Suzette @ Esplanade

Suzette @ Esplanade

If you have heard about Lola’s Cafe, then I’m sure you will want to know more about this new Dessert Bar at Esplanade. The owner of Lola’s Cafe opened a new Dessert Bar named Suzette. Conveniently located at Esplanade, this dessert bar offers a wide scrumptious of desserts and savory menus that are all so heavenly.

Yet, Suzette is not like any other ordinary cafes or dessert bars. Starting from 5th November 2016, you could rent a picnic basket and a mat with a deposit of $50 to go for a picnic! How unconventional right?

Suzette Picnic

Suzette Picnic

I got to have a wonderful picnic experience with their new picnic concept. I love the idea of having an outdoor meal with nature.

Pulled Duck Burger

Pulled Duck Burger

Pulled Duck Burger. Sure it will be messy when having this. But, the shredded duck meat was pleasantly sweet. It was certainly refreshing. 

Quinoa Rice Bowl

Quinoa Rice Bowl

My personal favorite, Quinoa Rice Bowl with Chicken, Guacamole, Corn & Chilli Lime Dressing. I think that the chicken was well-grilled. Paired with the guacamole and dressing, it was flavorful and so delish! I totally prefer Quinoa to Brown Rice. Still, Quinoa is as healthy as Brown Rice. So I was glad that they used Quinoa.

Passion Fruit and Basil Cheese

Passion Fruit and Basil Cheese

For dessert, I got to try out Passion Fruit and Basil Cheesecake. It was fabulously exotic!

From top to bottom, the creator of this dessert certainly a whole lot of thought it too! I was told that only the whipped cream was infused with Basil and not the whole cake itself as some people might not be so fond of the flavor. Then, I was amazed by a wonderful combination of Passion Fruit and Cheese together. Just you think it can’t get any special, the crust was made with a very unusual ingredient. I can’t tell you what is it but, you got to try it out!

Coffee Hazelnut Tart

Coffee Hazelnut Tart

If you love Nutella, you got to try this out yeah! 

Coffee Hazelnut Tart, lovely as always. A mocha nutty crust, hard yet crumbly soft! A little ironic I know but that is how I am going to describe it. The filling was wonderful and aromatic too! Surely a rich and decadent dessert, if that’s what you are looking for.

Banana Earl Grey Cake

Banana Earl Grey Cake

Dense fudgy Banana-flavored & Earl Grey Cake covered with luscious smooth Banana-Flavored almost-caramelized buttercream, that’s a lot of banana to represent this cake. 

Something different if you are feeling adventurous, especially if you are deeply in love with banana. 

Lemon Meringue Tart

Lemon Meringue Tart

Lemon Meringue Tart, a good balance of sour and sweet deems a good tart. I’m sure this will satisfy most people, but I find a little just a little more sourish will do my liking. Nevertheless, I still find that they have one of the best Lemon Meringue Tart in town.

Raspberry Loaf Cake with Lemon Curd

Raspberry Loaf Cake with Lemon Curd

Raspberry Loaf with Lemon Curd may sound rather uncommon to us Singaporeans, but actually a very popular combination elsewhere in the world. Try it out yourself and you will know why. At the very least, I’m sure that a loaf cake won’t go wrong.

Acai Smoothie Bowl

Acai Smoothie Bowl

Simple and light Acai Smoothie Bowl. If you ain’t looking anything to devour down a rather heavy meal, maybe you could grab a bowl of Acai Smoothie from there. Topped with fresh fruit and yummy-limous crumble, simple, light and refreshing.

Drinks

Drinks

Chocolate drink is my favorite among these three. Nevertheless, all three of them are very rich and fragrant.

Suzette Picnic

Suzette Picnic

It was definitely a pleasant evening with Suzette and their new Picnic Concept. I can see that many people will enjoy this idea during their weekends with their family and friends especially after a long week of work. I too would bring someone I want to spend time with to sit down and enjoy the marvelous evening.

Thanks Suzette for having me, giving such as a great hospitality. Ring them out to find more information about it!

Joo Bar – ‘D-I-Y’ Bibimbap @ Bugis

Joo Bar

Joo Bar

I got to ‘D-I-Y’ my own Bibimbap at Joo Bar! They have a wide selection of ingredients to choose from to mix & match starting from just $10.90 with a choice of drink. What I love about is that they even have purple rice or quinoa to choose from!

Purple rice (also known as black rice), contains high amount of anthocyanins antioxidants that help to fight against heart disease and cancer. It is also a good source of fiber that helps with your digestion. 

Joo Bar

Joo Bar

Their ingredients felt really fresh! I love how the way they minced their in-house kimchi into fine bits. That way, you could mix it later into your rice evenly. The kimchi had a balance of sour and spicy. I don’t like kimchi that is too sour, so theirs definitely suits my taste bud.

Joo Bar

Joo Bar

My favorite sides got to be sliced spams, bulgogi pork, sweet corn, minced kimchi and crispy tofu! All you need to do is mix and devour.
