2pm on New Years Day.
X and I arrived at Four Seasons Hotel for our New Year's Day brunch!
Having seen the menu online, we were really psyched for the buffet!
The scroll that had the list of main courses and varying prices printed on it.
The extensive meat section
Poached Maine Lobster, Alaskan king crab, Sri Lanka crabs, sashimi and ikura!
Smoked seafood, local roast etc
Grapefruit foie gras, beef wellington, pork wellington, meat loaf, lyoner, pork mortadella, peking duck
The impressive meat selection which wasn't exactly very tasty
Turkey pie, ham with pineapple and raisin sauce, duck with prune and orange
Apple, orange, watermelon, guava juice etc available
Apple-wood grilled Wagyu steak, home-styled potatoes, asparagus - $138++
The amount that you pay for the whole meal depends on the main course that you choose. They have other selections such as eggs benedict, sea bream, French toast, turkey etc.
My steak was medium and it was nicely done. Very tender, hardly bloody and it was really good. I was too full to finish the whole steak though. It was quite a huge portion.
Wood-fire baked Maine lobster, prawn and bread crumbs stuffed - $138 ++
When the lobster first came, we were kinda shocked. Hahaha it's huge! We just stared at it and wondered how we were supposed to start. It was quite a common reaction as I see other diners with similar expressions on their faces and struggling to tackle this monster. Haha. The lobster was sweet and juicy but X didn't think that it was exactly fantastic.
Baked cheesecake, matcha trifle, banana chocolate cake, grandma's chocolate cake, rhubarb crumble, william pear cake, passion mousse cake, bread and butter pudding
The desserts were all really delicious!
Passion fruit macarons, sticky date toffee pudding, almond cake. Love the macarons! But they didn't top up the macarons at the end ):
Chocolate mousse, caramel pralines.
The caramel pralines were seriously addictive
I was really looking forward to the live station that was supposed to have chocolate souffle with caramel sauce but I couldn't find it. Guess they made some changes to the menu.
It was quite a pleasant experience dining at One-Ninety. Service was quite impeccable. The whole meal cost $320 for the both of us and while we feel that it's a little steep for a buffet that had only slightly more hits than misses, we still enjoyed ourselves. I think that they should improve on the presentation of the seafood and sashimi at their respective stations though!
