Prego At Fairmont Singapore – New Italian Sunday Brunch Buffet With Free-Flow Sparkling Wine

Prego Sunday Brunch

Prego at Fairmont Singapore is one of the most reputable Italian restaurants in Singapore, and they are known for signature Italian favourites such as wood-fired pizza. But what we truly love is the all-new Italian Sunday Brunch Buffet—one of the best indulgences if you have a hankering for Italiano-everything.

Prego’s head chef Antonio Facchinetti and his team have introduced a whole new gastronomic experience and the Italian Sunday Brunch happens every Sunday from 12pm to 3pm. It is a massive showcase of Italian fiesta, from cold cuts and premium cheeses to a la minute pasta and grilled meats.

Here are some of the highlights you can expect at Prego’s Sunday Brunch Buffet, and why you should start your year right with a great Italian Brunch. READ ON

Fynn’s Café Singapore – New Gorgeous Cafe At South Beach Avenue

Fynn's-Cafe

Fynn’s Café—conveniently located right outside Esplanade MRT Station Exit CC3—is a gorgeous new addition to South Beach Avenue. The beautiful modern all-day dining café reminded us of our good old days in Melbourne. It is worth mentioning staff members are attentive and friendly – a trait that Singapore’s hospitality industry greatly lacks.

We dropped by on a weekday afternoon and Fynn’s Café was packed with customers; expatriates and office dwellers make up the bulk of the crowd. No surprise there, since it is located just a stone’s throw away from the office building and JW Marriott Hotel.

Bar & Billiard Room – S$30++ Champagne & Oysters Fridays

bar and billard raffles hotel

Living in one of the world’s most expensive cities has its pros and cons. While those residing in Singapore are blessed with an impressive variety of watering holes, the drawback would be the exorbitant prices of alcohol.

These days, it is extremely common to pay at least S$20 for a glass of champagne in Singapore; going out for drinks is far from affordable.

So, imagine our surprise when we were told that Raffles Hotel’s Bar & Billiard Room is offering an awesome value-for-money promotion. You guys, two glasses of premium champagne, four freshly shucked oysters and a complimentary bucket of Indian flatbreads papadums – all at only S$30++ on every Friday from 6pm to 9pm.

Now, that is a rare indulgent treat without an extravagant price tag!

Celebrate with Grand Park City Hall’s ‘Santa’s Fruity Christmas’

GPCH Xmas 2015

Nothing makes December more exciting than themed festive dishes, especially when a buffet spread is carefully planned for and intricately prepared – just like this year’s festive buffet offerings from Indulge at Park, Grand Park City Hall. The theme of ‘Santa’s Fruity Christmas’ was coined by Executive Chef Eric Ong as he infuses intense flavours of various citrus fruits into his festive dishes.

These dishes range from Orange-Glazed Pork Ribs to Smoke Orange Oil Scented Apricot Crust Roasted Rack of Lamb. The incorporation of citrus fruits into the dishes truly adds a touch of Yuletide magic.

Indulge at Park

Here are some other dishes you can expect from the ‘Santa’s Fruity Christmas’ buffet spread and other mainstay signature dishes that you have to try at Grand Park City Hall this festive season!

Spizza Mercato has a super affordable menu and a wide variety of pizzas (but of course), and what it is exceptionally popular during lunch for its amazing weekday lunch deals – S$12 for a dry pasta with classic sauce or a 10 inch pizza, anyone?

Pizzas are the limelight here at Spizza Mercato, but that ain’t all. Here, we share with you the highlights of our meal, and all that we love at and about Spizza Mercato.
