The stellar restaurants of luxury hotels Fairmont Singapore and Swissotel The Stamford are offering two spectacular brunch experiences – with Champagne, no less – every Sunday, and they’re worth getting out of bed for
It’s Sunday morning and you’re thinking: should I get up for brunch, or should I continue to stay in bed? Most times, we’d choose sleep over food – thanks to our crazy-busy lifestyles – but Prego at Fairmont Singapore and Equinox Restaurant at Swissotel The Stamford are giving us very, very compelling reasons to get out of bed on the last day of the weekend.
If your taste buds are craving something international, head up to Equinox Restaurant for its recently launched Sunday vintage brunch – and the stunning views, of course. Ocean-fresh seafood takes the spotlight here: savour Boston lobster; Traigheanna Bay, Oléron and French oysters, Sri Lankan crab and prawns; as well as an impeccable range of sashimi including tuna, salmon, hokkigai, hamachi and tako. There’s also a live carving station serving succulent roast rib Angus beef with red wine amongst other grilled meats, and Chef de Cuisine Paul Hallet’s weekly special of salmon wellington. Don’t forget to save room for desserts like the Kir Royale Champagne cassis, Jivara milk chocolate blue Choux, red ruby peach with wine jelly and banana opera!
Got little ones in tow? They’ll have a ball of a time at Equinox, marvelling at magic tricks, playing in the kids room (which has a dedicated nanny), making cookies, and tucking into kid-friendly bites like chicken nuggets, fish fingers and fries. Who says Sundays are hectic for parents?
And because we go head over heels for Italian – the men, the cuisine, the fashion, the language – it almost feels like a letdown to miss out on Prego’s new Sunday brunch buffet. Italian staples like pasta and risotto are made fresh daily at the live stations, while your choices of grilled marinated meat and seafood are served tableside as you dine. You’ll also find the freshest seafood, an assortment of rustic bread and bruschetta, Italian farm cheeses like Asiago and Taleggio, the restaurant’s signature wood-fired pizza, beef lasagna and traditional minestrone soup, plus a seasonal Sunday roast, truffle-laden dishes and more grill specials to complete your quintessential Italian feast.
The decadence doesn’t stop there: Prego’s dessert counter is filled with classic Italian sweets like tiramisu, cannoli and panna cotta, as well as lemon-imbued seasonal treats such as lemon au gratin, lemon crumble, and lemon sponge cake with candied lemon. If you’re feeling fancy, go for a free-flow of exquisite Berlucchi ’61 Brut Franciacorta, which is made using the classic Champagne method. Don’t mind if we do.
