Sunday Brunch @ Equinox, Swissotel

DSC_0172

Dining at Equinox may be the closest to dining in the sky given that it is 69 stories up, which already trumps Sky on 57. The original intent was for a leisurely high tea but they have scrapped that for just ala carte and Anti:dote has revamped with a to-die-for, to-queue-after high tea set so it had to be an indulgent Sunday Brunch.

A view worth waking up for. 

The spread was alot wider than expected, the length of at least 4 buffet lines - 3 savoury and 1 full corner of desserts. Just seeing them made me wink and grin.

Live stations galore.

DSC_0117

An innovative way of presenting salads.

DSC_0116

Even potato salad and bacon bits looks extra tantalizing, don't you think?

Cheese selection with bread!

Seafood galore too, I was hoping for Boston lobsters but slipper lobsters were good enough.

Of all the plates consumed, I would recommend paying full attention to their live stations.

Truffle Macaroni had the full works of truffle oil, cheese and macaroni. Loved the heartyness of this casserole and worthy of the thirds I had.

The station that can be smelt from afar - pan fried sizzling foie gras!

Plates and plates of it fried on demand.

Panfried on the spot, these were served with a brioche toast and caramelised onions. The biggest surprise is these were not flying off the pan the way I expected since this were perhaps the biggest indulgence for the buffet. And one plate was all I managed despite wanting to stuff myself silly with foie gras.

Lamb Rack

I usually do not get all excited about lamb but this was smoked so well, hardly gamey and the best of all, meaty and the mint jelly was a dream come through.

Roast Beef with Yorkshire Pudding

Another well roasted dishes, the beef had a lovely sear and packed enough juice for seconds. Perfect with mustard.

Yorkshire pudding to pair with roast beef, I have never been a fan of it though for its lacking in texture.

Salmon Pie

I made the chef do the honours by slicing the first portion for me. Buttery crust meets a flaky salmon, very well executed and for a lack of a better word - tasty!

DSC_0153

Slurps up a dollop of aphrodisiac, methinks the best combination is always tabasco and a wedge of lemon.

DSC_0139

A vegetarian lasagne, high on colours but low on satisfaction. I would have preferred this served at a live station.

DSC_0138

Pork Belly with a jellied layer of fat, interesting take on the Asian siobak.

DSC_0162

The other notable mentions of the buffet include a really hearty pumpkin soup made from scratch.

DSC_0133

The potato salad I picked up because of its presentation.

DSC_0141

The range of cheeses I indulged in and wish for so much more stomach space to accomodate more. The breads are also worth some space!

DSC_0161

My favourite pairing - cheese and crackers which made the stomach rumble in such satisfaction. Together with the best view in Singapore, I am mighty pleased.

DSC_0142

Don't forget to check out their dessert section which is away from the savoury - a great move methinks, at least I get to walk off some calories getting there.

DSC_0152

Too pretty to eat chocolate pops.

DSC_0151

Dessert shooters I usually shun but these look so pretty!

DSC_0150

Gummy pastilles with a layer of marshmellow.

DSC_0149

Macaron mania, the trouble with most macarons at buffets is they end up not having distinct flavours. These were too crumbly and the fillings were mostly jams.

DSC_0148

Chocolate brownie pops served with icecream sticks, delightful crunchy brownies!

DSC_0147

Deconstructed blueberry tarts.

DSC_0146

Cakes that were too pretty to destroy with a single stab.

DSC_0145

Apple mousse cake.

DSC_0144

A raspberry sponge.

A quartet of pistachio dusted choux puffs.

The dessert section was so pretty, I spent most of the time taking photos of it. Do pay extra attention to their chocolate pops and banana cake that was incredibly moist.

DSC_0159

These chocolate shells unveil a delicious molten filling - chocolate or lemon, I am torn!

DSC_0158

Scones for those who feel high-tea-ish.

DSC_0157

One of the many plates of sugar overload. I'd say their desserts are more than meets a sugared eye - they look good and taste good too!

DSC_0169

Entertainment on the go too! We were kept amused by a magician and his deck of cards. 

Food was good, quality and quantity which is expected given the price tag of $138++. For free flow champagne, it comes at a bubbly tune of $158++. Service is expectedly top notch too, well done Swissotel at Stamford!

It is worth an indulgence once every now and Equinox may very well just be the place. Look out for their Pink Champagne Brunch that happens every last Sunday of the month. I hear it is every girl's dream brunch.
