Sunday brunches have a very special place in our hearts because it is the most important meals over the weekend; bigger than breakfast and more enticing than lunch, there is really nothing not to love about a good Sunday brunch.
Nestled in Mandarin Oriental, Singapore, Melt Café is one of the best choices if you are in the Marina Bay area. Their Sunday Champagne Brunch is simply out of the world—we are talking about endless gourmet food, including bubbles and fun in-house entertainment for everyone in the family.
From fresh oysters of different varieties, premium sashimi from the Japanese counter, a carving station that will satisfy the carnivores to their ever popular Indian cuisine and an outdoor barbecue grill, this is one champagne brunch that is deserving of an encore.
CRAZY CHEESE SELECTION
Brunch is made better when there is an amazing cheese selection and the one at Melt Café will definitely impress you.
Pair your wines with any cheese of your preference that are sourced from countries such as Italy, France and United Kingdom.
FRESH SEAFOOD ON ICE
The seafood counter is a dream come true for all oyster fans. The restaurant sources for oysters from different parts of the world and depending on seasonality, you get to slurp up varieties such as Taylor Pacific, Fine de Claire and Creuses de Bretagne.
Crustaceans such as Alaska King Crabs and Boston Lobsters also stood out among the clams, mussels and prawns at the counter.
Tucked away at a corner beside the desserts, the Japanese food station takes on the form of an L-shaped counter which showcases a scrumptious range of both hot and cold Japanese delights.
When you are there, keep a lookout for a large wooden basin which is filled with five types of sashimi including the likes of salmon, tuna, octopus and more. Other tantalising options are the sushi, cold soba, and crispy deep-fried tempura with Japanese curry.
FOIE GRAS & CARVING STATION
Nothing gets better than a ‘live’ carving station at a buffet—until you add on a Foie Gras counter as well. The idea of endless rounds of foie gras is tempting, yes?
To make things even better, the carving station also boasts local and western delicacies such as char siew pork, roasted pork, roasted chicken, slow-roasted Australian prime rib beef and whole baked honey ham.
With its over-the-top offerings, it may not occur to you that the Indian counter is actually one of the signatures at Melt Café and let us just say that no one should leave the buffet restaurant without a taste of their savoury curries and buttery naan.
Noteworthy Indian recipes you should not miss for anything in the world are the Tandoori Chicken, Butter Chicken, and more.
OUTDOOR BARBECUE GRILL STATION
Besides the indoor carving station, meat lovers can also head outside to the al fresco terrace where the BBQ grill section is. Take your pick among tantalising options such as the Suckling Pig, Beef Steak, Barbecue Chicken Wings, Pork Collar and Grilled Salmon.
You really have to save space for their Suckling Pig, which is roasted whole in the oven at the outdoor terrace. This method of roasting ensures that the juices are all locked in so the meat remains tender.
Melt Café’s glorious dessert shrine is reason enough to get you out of bed on a Sunday morning. Featuring desserts from award-winning pastry chefs, this is where you will find all those with a sweet tooth going nuts for the stunning desserts.
The new Amaretto Sabayon—exclusive to Melt Café’s Sunday Champagne Brunch—is a real showstopper, as the dessert is doused with liquid nitrogen to create an enchanting theatrical effect before it is paired with red fruit compote and a topping of your choice.
Other sweet treats that are worth all the calories include the handmade waffles, handcrafted cakes, chocolate fondue, tiramisu in a chocolate cup and premium chocolates.
