Everyone probably knows that we Singaporeans love a good Sunday brunch! A brunch buffet — even better! So those of you brunch enthusiasts might be thrilled to find out that there’s a new brunch buffet in town.
Caprilicious at Capri by Fraser has a fabulous new Sunday brunch.
The hotel residence Capri by Fraser launched a fabulous new Sunday Champagne brunch at their restaurant Caprilicious recently. My family and I were delighted to be invited for the opening on the 20th of July.
Upon entering Caprilicious, we were greeted by several friendly staff from Capri. When they saw our two kids, they immediately informed us of their kids’ play area.
The spacious kids’ area should be your first stop!
So as you would imagine, that’s where I went first. The play area at Caprilicious is huge!
They had a movie screening at the time and there were large couches for kids to lounge on. There’s also a staff member who takes down the child’s particulars and the parent’s phone number.
More on the kids play area later — you must be dying to find out about the spread of scrumptious food at Caprilicious!
Starting the meal right
The wonderful range of shellfish on offer
The spread was lavish and I decided to start at the seafood counter. On offer at the seafood crustacean counter are baby lobsters, crab claws, prawns, scallops and mussels, plus fresh assorted sashimi — including Norwegian salmon, Ahi tuna and octopus.
Colourful and fresh sashimi
I love sashimi, so that’s what I tried first. I was quite pleased to find out that it was very fresh indeed.
There is also an impressive salad counter which included offerings such as potato salad, Caprese salad with fresh mozzarella, basil and tomato, and a hearty cobb salad.
The antipasto counter, on the other hand, featured the likes of grilled peppers, guacamole, artichokes and mixed olives, among many others.
I particularly liked the potato salad and the Caprese, with its pillowy-soft fresh mozzarella.
An all-time brunch favourite — Eggs Benedict.
The buffet also features brunch favourites such as Eggs Benedict, sausages, bacon, and a selection of cereals and fresh yoghurt.
Say cheese! This range of cheeses are enough to satisfy any cheese-lover!
If you fancy some bread and cheese they’ve got those, too. From ciabatta and rye to brie and bleu, complete with grapes and crackers — you will be spoilt for choice!
BBQ, pasta and more…
Now, on to the BBQ station. This is (obviously) located outdoors, just a few steps away from the buffet itself. You should definitely make the “trip” there, in my opinion!
The BBQ station is outdoors.
A must-try! The mini burger will definitely satisfy!
They have delicious and juicy mini Wagyu burgers (my husband’s favourite of the day!), tender lamb cutlets, sambal stingray and a few other varieties. The clear winners are the burgers and the lamb!
A range of delicious meats on the BBQ.
You also have to try the BBQ beef at the carving station — it is done to a perfect medium-rare and is a meat-lover’s delight.
Pace yourself now, we are only halfway through the buffet — there’s much, much more to go!
What I wanted to check out next was the pasta/egg station. Pasta-anything is one of my kids’ all-time favourite foods.
The pasta and eggs station
The chef at the pasta and egg station whipped up some ravioli with tomato sauce and it was amazingly yummy! Needless to say, my kids loved it.
A yummy selection of mains. The pork (top left) is a must-try!
Oh, they also have a selection of 10 mains! Among the mains line-up are the crackling pork roulade, veal bratwurst & chicken bockwurst sausages, Hong Kong-style seafood egg noodles and, a local favourite, chicken nasi goreng kampung.
A close-up of my favourite — the pork roulade with crispy crackling. It is mouthwateringly succulent!
They taste as good as they look!
Macarons — so many flavours, all so amazing!
Now, here’s a tip you’ll most definitely thank me for later — save room for dessert! I know it is really tough not to get carried away when presented with a huge selection of delicious food, but do try.
Here’s what you need to do — walk by the dessert section before you start on the starters and mains, just to know what to expect, and you’ll know why I’m asking you to do what I said earlier.
A delicious array of cakes and slices
The Caprilicious brunch buffet has a wonderful array of local and western sweets, such as durian pengat in shot glasses, yam paste with chia seeds, a selection of macarons, assorted mini French pastries, almond longan jelly, traditional nyonya patisseries… and the list goes on.
Traditional nyonya sweets — sure to be a hit with the kids!
A fresh berry tart encased in crunchy shortcrust pastry with a crumble topping
I need to make a special mention about the chocolate indulgence section, which has options such as white and dark chocolate fondue, opera cake, dark chocolate truffle, mousse, churros and chocolate waffles. Yum!
Chocolate fondue, anyone?
The waffle station
