Buffet Lunch @ Cafe Brios
For the last event for this academic year, the Deli Aprecio Club organised a Saturday lunch at Cafe Brios over at the Grand Copthorne Waterfront Hotel. The menu really sounded good on paper (think Duck Breast with Sauteed Mushrooms and Figs, Seabass with Carrot Escabeche and Chervil Oil, Lamb Shawerma) but I wasn't really won over by the actual food. The seating outside by the Singapore River with the sun and gentle river breeze was charming though. It helped that because it was outside the main food area, the walks to and fro aided digestion. Oh and I could'nt resist taking a photo of the above salt and pepper shaker. Harmonious pair indeed.
Here's a peak of what was offered that day.
I only had two small helpings of the sashimi. That should say something.
The smoked salmon with capers, pasta salad and mixed leaves made a good impression.
One of the things I enjoyed was the spread of assorted cheese and crackers. Made my day.
I seriously don't know how Yiling could have polished off this plate. To be honest, I was a little intimated by it.
Ok, so maybe the food not only sounds good on the menu but may also look good in pictures. But I guess it suffered the fate of constant heating/warming that resulted in some of the items becoming dry and tough. What a pity.

Chew On This: If you are bringing along kids, Cafe Brios have an interesting system of charging the kid according to his age. Call to enquire.
