Sundays are a great time to gather with your friends and family; Sundays are fun days to tuck in to mezza9 at Grand Hyatt Singapore’s immensely popular Champagne Brunch that features a galore of international cuisines. With Perrier Jouët Champagne, no less.
You have no idea how our eyes are always drawn to the fresh seafood section of Maine lobsters, French oysters and king prawns every single time we step in to mezza9 on Sundays. Beyond that, what never cease to amaze us are the eight other stations, each presenting a cuisine of the world. From European fare to Chinese roast meats to Japanese delights, there is certainly something for everybody here.
It is little wonder mezza9 is one of the best places in town for Champagne Brunches. Here are 10 Reasons to Love mezza9 at Grand Hyatt’s Sunday Champagne Brunch – a meal fit for the royalty.
#1 CHAMPAGNE & DRINKS
Besides serving the premium Perrier Jouët Grand Brut champagne, you can also ask for free-flow of white wines, red wines, beers, mojitos and bloody marys. In our book, that’s an extremely good deal.
Some bubbly sips throughout a Sunday Brunch session is always a fabulous way to live it up. Fresh juices are also made available for children, or for those who do not take alcohol. We love the dedicated corner where a chef will be ever ready to do a juice blend for you.
#2 FRESH SEAFOOD SECTION
Here comes our favourite part of the whole experience – fresh seafood on ice. These are practically the headline. Just that giant stack of Maine lobsters was enough to make our jaws drop.
Though lobsters alone suffice to please us, we were pretty distracted by the many other seafood. Scottish Brown Crab and Spencer Gulf Wild King Prawns awaited us, and boy, did we enjoy the sweet-tasting Fin de Claire oysters that were so fresh, it felt like we were having them straight out of the ocean.
You know what they said about being on a seafood diet? Yup, “I see food, and I eat. See food diet.” Damn, we love practising our favourite diet at mezza9′s Sunday Champagne Brunch!
#3 WIDE VARIETY OF CHEESES
Our eyes popped when we spotted the biggest block of brie cheese. But the best part of the shrine? The Shropshire Blue Cheese. The full-bodied, creamy and rich flavours really drove us crazy.
If you are not that big a fan of blue cheese, we suggest you go for the Brie De Meaux. It is salty, buttery, rich and so aromatic. Other cheeses available include Grana Padano and Mimolette.
#4 SUSTAINABLE SEAFOOD USED IN SUSHI & SASHIMI
Something that we’ve always loved about mezza9 is their policy of using only sustainable sources. Over-fishing, deep-sea trawling and disastrous methods of fishing are some of the worst things that many fishermen do, and this results in the wipe-out of (at times) entire species, destroying habitats of all of these fishes and sea creatures in the meanwhile.
But by using only sustainable seafood, mezza9 is definitely doing their part for our beloved marine world and this gives us another reason to love them.
They offer a selection of sashimi of sustainable fishes that includes the popular salmon, tuna, amberjack and more.
#5 EXQUISITE JAPANESE YAKITORI
How about some yakitori grilled fresh on the charcoal grill in front of you? The spread features delicious Tsukune (chicken meatball), pork belly and leek, and a variety of meat skewers.
Also sitting within the yakitori section is the Grilled Yellowfin Tuna. We are typically against fully-cooked tuna, especially of an expensive cut of Ahi, but this was cooked and seasoned so well that we fell in love upon first bite – extremely well-executed.
#6 MOUTH-WATERING WOK-FRIED CHINESE DISHES
A selection of classic Chinese dishes are available, and they are usually on rotation. We had Steamed Kampong Chicken, Wok-Fried Barramundi and Wok-Fried ‘John Stone’ Beef Tenderloin; there are your favourite Chinese roast meats too! Yes, read on.
#7 DELECTABLE ROAST MEATS – WESTERN & EASTERN
This display of freshly roasted meats made us grin from ear to ear. We had a taste of roast duck and char siew, and needless to say, the chefs nailed it.
Western roasts are also available in this section. The wide range features meats such as Slow-Roasted Apricot and Prune stuffed Pork Loin, and Oven-Roasted Black Angus Short Loin. However, the star of the day was the Spit-roasted Whole Welsh Lamb.
Do note that the roasts are on rotation, and you can expect to find new surprises every week.
#8 TANTALISING MIDDLE EASTERN FARE
You hardly see good and authentic Middle Eastern fare in buffets in Singapore but here at mezza9 on Sundays, you are treated to a great variety. From dolma to kisir, this Middle Eastern section deserves your attention too.
Also look out for fresh nicoise salad, and don’t forget some sweet Spice-Baked Pumpkin Salad.
#9 THAI FOOD AND OUR FAVOURITE TOMYUM SOUP
Have you heard? mezza9 has AHMAZING Thai food. For so many years now, we have been regulars of mezza9 – for lunch, for dinner… because of the Thai food. The team of Thai chefs cook up some of the best dishes, and their tomyum soup is our all-time favourite.
It is also available during Sunday champagne brunch, alongside rotational Thai dishes.
#10 AMAZING DESSERT STATION WITH CHOCOLATE FOUNTAIN
Desserts at mezza9 are delectable, and they look and taste exquisite. This counter is insane, and we swear the chefs are on a quest to turn us fat!
Blame it on our low resistance, but we always pig out more than we should here. Our favourite without a doubt? Their tiramisu. We can never ever find anything negative to say about it, except that it comes in tiny portions that just weren’t enough to satisfy our cravings.
An unexpected star of the show was the sticky date pudding that came with gooey caramel sauce, and tasted even better with a generous sprinkle of sea salt on top.
mezza9, with all that buffet line-up of yours, you are so totally ruining our diet plans, aren’t you?
