La Brasserie Weekend - Le Brunch by the Bay
Enjoy La Brasserie signatures and brunch favourites, freshly cooked upon order and delivered to the table.
Weekends are made for leisurely brunching and La Brasserie at The Fullerton Bay Hotel Singapore has long indulged in this tradition. The splendid repast features a carefully curated menu of signature La Brasserie highlights alongside brunch essentials. To ensure maximum flavour and food safety, all dishes are cooked to order and delivered to the table. For those who desire celebratory weekend tipples, there is also a free-flow of bubbly and delicious signature cocktails on offer.
Welcome to the new normal of champagne buffet brunches where you choose your food from a menu and each dish is prepared fresh in the kitchen and plated individually to be served to your table, in small tasting portions.
The ambience is chic and classy with a nice view of the waterfront bay although it was raining when we were there.
The wait staff patiently explained the different pricing options to us.
$118 per adult for the basic ala-carte buffet with free flow of chilled juices and soft drinks. Great option for Teetotallers.
$148 per adult with free flow of beer, house pour red and white wines and signature Bloody Marys
$168 per adult with free flow of Veuve Clicquot NV Champagne, beer, house pour red and white wines and signature Bloody Marys
$238 per adult with free flow Ruinart Blanc de Blanc Champagne and all the drink options listed above
We opted for the Ruinart as it was one of our favourtite champagnes and one of the oldest Champagne Houses in Champagne. 100% Chardonnay which would pair perfectly with most of the dishes.
We started off our gastronomic journey with the Ocean Catch, a selection of fresh poached seafood (Snow Crab, Maine Lobster, Tiger Prawn, Scallop and Bouchot Mussel) with housemade dips. The seafood was fresh and exuberated a tinge of natural sweetness, and paired perfectly with the Ruinart Blanc de Blancs Champagne, because of its fresh citrus spectrum of flavours and creamy minerality.
Butter Baked Escargots with Garlic, Parsley and Garlic Bread. Large, fresh and juicy.
Champignon & Truffle from The Tureen. Thick, robust and full of flavours.
Now for the mains – we had to try almost every dish to get our money’s worth.
Grilled Cote De Boeuf – Thyme Butter Roasted Rib Eye
Bordelaise Beef Cheeks with Caramelised Heirloom Vegetables
We were told these Beef Cheeks have been slow cooked for many many hours to achieve the tenderness and melt-in-the-mouth texture and umami.
Confit De Canard – Crispy Duck Confit with Haricots Verts, Hazelnut Valencia Orange Reduction
Slow Roasted Herb-Crusted Lamb Chops, Roasted Shallots and Rosemary Jus
Truffle Angel Hair Pasta with Shio Kombu and Sakura Ebi
We are not fans of carbs, but this dish was brilliantly executed. The pasta was springy and al dente and was not too hard or soft.
Wild Mushroom Risotto
We moved on to try the Asiatique cuisine which the hotel is also famous for.
Chicken and Beef Satays, and the Crispy Roasted Crackling Pork Belly. The “Siew Yoke” was indeed crackling and crispy to its claim, and we could not help but to order 3 repeat servings. Absolutely worth the fats and calories, washed down by the Ruinart.
We were pretty stuffed and over the limit by now, and ended the afternoon with desserts and the Plateau De Fromage.
64% Mousse Au Chocolat
Le “Apple” – Apple Lime Compote, Vanilla Creme, Yuzu Sorbet
Plateau De Fromage
Overall Verdict: Well worth the money, given that most of the dishes are also served in the ala-carte menu, ranging from $20-50 per dish. Although the portions in this ala-carte buffet are smaller than the standard sized ones in the ala-carte menu, you get the opportunity to sample a greater variety of tasting portion dishes. We were told by the staff that the most popular drinks package is the Veuve Clicquot, but go for the free flow Ruinart option if you can, for the supplement top up, to truly enjoy a decadent pairing experience. Do make your reservations in advance as the restaurant has been running full house every weekend since the end of the circuit breaker.
Le Brunch by the Bay is available only on Saturdays and Sundays from 12.00 p.m. to 3.00 p.m. (last pour 2.45 p.m.)
