Melt Café – Sunday Champagne Brunch [MEDIA INVITE]

Melt Cafe

Sunday Brunch is known as the ultimate buffet experience in Singapore dining scene. It is time where the restaurant will showcase menu curated from the best ingredients and the list are endless. Not forgetting, the bubbles also play an important part of the Sunday Brunch experience.

Seven reasons to book Sunday Champagne Brunch at Melt Café

Pan-Seared Foie Gras and Slow Roast Australian Aged Prime Rib of Beef. The first time I saw the thick cut of foie gras displayed at the station. When I approach, the chef asked, one or two Sir? I was so tempted to order two but decided against it.

The Foie Gras is pan-seared for a crisp exterior and velvety, creamy interior. Together with the slow roast aged prime rib, this is probably one of the best Sunday Roast I have experienced. This combo just made my day.

Whole Roasted Suckling Pig at The Barbeque Station. I spotted it at the beginning when I was taking some shots. The suckling pig going round and round in the rotisserie. On my next visit, they have some served and ready to eat. The flesh is tender and succulent, while the fats just melt in your mouth. The skin is thin and crispy, however, if you leave it a tad longer, it will even be better.

BBQ Selections

Suckling Pig, T-Bone Lamb, Sausage & Fillet Steak 

The Japanese Counter. The latest setting of Japanese counter offers extensive range of sashimi, displayed on a huge wooden basin. It features salmon, salmon belly, tuna, octopus and yellow tails. All the cuts are thick, fresh and it will tickle your Japanese taste buds. They have some sushi, sushi roll and Japanese curry for those who can’t skip this simple pleasure.

Snow Crab Terrine, Caviar and Garden Cress. I had this a few times and never get bored of it. The chunk of crab meats is delicate and sweet. The touch of caviar and adequate seasoning allow the pristine ingredients to shine. Yum Yum.

The Indian Food. The signature station in Melt Café. The naan, tandoori and curries will tantalise your appetite like none other. Today, they have Traditional Spiced Roasted Whole Spring Lamb. The WOW factor is definitely there, but it can do with more time on in the oven.

The desserts. The Melt Chocolate Cake is definitely there to give a perfect ending to your meal. This time around Apple Dill Chantilly Tart and Raspberry Chou Chou got my votes. The combination of apple and dill gave it a tangy unique taste that cleanses the palate. The multi-layered Raspberry Chou Chou did well to balance the rich proteins from the Sunday Brunch. For a trendier option, try their Liquid Nitrogen Freeze Amaretto Sabayon, Red Fruit Compote.

While the above are my picks, I have to admit I did not manage to try all the dishes. Safe to say, it just invites you to come back for more.
