Having a long week at work? Why not pamper yourself with a great weekend brunch with either friends or family. The weekend brunch at Catalunya ($98++) is one its kind with a eclectic selection of antipasti, mains and desserts. Besides good food, there is also live DJ spinning in the house, giving the whole atmosphere a party vibe.
One advice to diner is to pace yourself at Catalunya. There is really a lot of food that was actually in a lost where and which to start with. In the end, I hit for the bar area where there is a spread of charcuterie, cheese, seafood (raw, marinated and pickled) and salad.
Scrambled Egg with Mushrooms 4.5/5
Besides the extensive spread of antipasti along the buffet line, Catalunya also offers an a la minute brunch menu with a condensed menu of Egg, Omelette and Sandwiches. The egg section comes with a choice of fried or scrambled egg on a bed of potato with choices of ham, chorizo and mushrooms.
Vegetarian Bikini 4.2/5
One of the group's favourite is the Bikini, made of of Iberico Ham, Cheese and Truffle. This is also brought to the brunch menu from the restaurant's lunch/dinner menu. It also has a vegetarian version which mada of zucchini, cheese and pesto.
Spanish Omelette 3.5/5
No matter how you look at the glass, it does not look like a Spanish Omelette at all. The modern twist of the traditional spanish omelette comes with three different layers of potato form, egg yolk and onion.
Seafood Paella 4.8/5
When I said earlier that you need to pace youself earlier, I am not joking as we have not even reached the mains yet. Between 130pm to 330pm, the music in the restaurant will be pumped up with the staff dancing out with the mains. First out was the Seafood Paella. The rice was well infused with the robust stock that reminds me of their lobster rice dish in their dinner menu.
Salted Baked Catch of the Day 4.2/5
The next main dish to be up is the Salted Baked Catch of the Day. The fish covered with salted is brought to the main dining hall, flambeed on the spot, portioned and served to the guests. The fish is cooked to a beautiful moist texture.
Suckling Pig 4.5/5
Last of the main to be danced out of the kitchen is the Suckling Pig. This is probably the highlight of the whole brunch experience. Crackling skin and fork tender. there is nothing more perfect for a great Spanish feast.
Not forgetting a delicious selection of yummilicious cakes and pastries to bring the whole brunch experience to a finale.
Besides the whole vibe and delicious spread of food at the weekend brunch, the other value for money reason is that one gets to try most of the items in Catalunya's dinner menu.
