The Place Sunday Brunch is no longer just about eggs and coffee these days. Currently trending are the Sunday Champagne Brunch Buffet, which many hotels and restaurants have started introducing! Caprilicious at hotel Capri by Frasers is one of the latest to offer the Sunday Champagne Brunch Buffet at $108++ with unlimited Laurent Perrier Champagne, cocktails, house pours, fruit juices and soft drinks. The good thing is that you can also go for the $58++ option if you are not a hardcore drinker.
The restaurant has a very spacious layout which made us felt very at ease. It was a nice way to entice us by laying the desserts near the entrance.
We also spotted a huge kids corner where there is a big projector screening cartoons, drawing corner as well as a console game station. Such a convenient corner for parents to deposit their kids if they get restless at the dining table.
The Food The spread is international cuisine as the variety is relatively wide. Some of the highlights include a live Pasta and Eggs station where the friendly chef would whip up according to your preference, the live barbeque station outdoors where there was lamb, beef and stingray as well as seafood selection such as Canadian Oysters, Lobsters, Crab and New Zealand Mussels.
The best way to start the brunch is to down some cocktails first. We tried the Strawberry Margarita and the Mojito. While we hadn’t manage to try the whole selection, or we would be dead drunk by the end of the buffet, tRP must add that the Mojito was really good!
From the buffet spread, there was also the Roasted Pork Knuckle, Sausages as well as Asian fares such as Fried rice and Bee hoon.
For brunch lovers, try the Teriyaki Salmon in Croissant and Eggs Benedict.
We love steak and could not miss having the Grilled Prime Rib steak.
Select your choice of meat such as lamb chop, beef patty and stingray. The chef would prepare and the food would be delivered to your table – that’s if you can catch the chef, who were missing in action most of the time when tRP visited!
Check out the petite Beef patty we had, as well as the Lamp chop, Sting ray, Asparagus and Squid.
The Canadian Oysters were really fresh, if you are a Oyster Fan, this might be your heaven!
We had the fresh Salmon and Tuna Sashimi as well, not forgetting to try the crazy seafood spread such as Lobster, Crab, Mussels and Scallops.
We are not cheese lovers but there is a cheese station at Caprilicious.
We were more excited to move on to desserts (as usual), which has a decent spread of cakes, macaroons, waffles, frozen yogurt as well as mousse.
Design your own Waffle with whatever toppings you fancy at the waffle station.
And make your own frozen Yogurt – this definitely quite unique!
Rants As with all champagne brunch buffet, we found it overpriced at $108++ per person unless you are quite a drinker. The selections at the buffet seemed impressive, but Caprilicious should focus on quality instead. With the ever-competitive food scene, it would definitely be more apt to encourage repeat customers to return for their favourites! The layout of the food selections could be improved as we found it too scattered.
Will I Return Again? Tough choice. It’s definitely one of the better priced Sunday Brunch Buffet (with free flow alcohol) in town, but yet it doesn’t offer the best food quality. Like we ranted, work on the food, and Caprilicious may become too delicious to say NO to!
