Kwee Zeen @ Sofitel Singapore Sentosa Resort & Spa

IMG_3658ed

Located in Sentosa Island of Singapore, with a great greeny surrounding and seaview is Kwee Zeen (pronounce as Cuisine), the Pan Asian Dining restaurant of the newly opened luxury hotel, Sofitel Singapore Sentosa Resort & Spa. The beautiful and elegant hotel has blended the historical architectural accents of the colonial buildings with its contemporary interiors and lush landscape, making in an endearing sanctuary for their guests.

Together with a group of foodies, we went down to Kwee Zeen on a Sunday for its Magnifique Sunday Champagne Brunch, offering a wide range of fine quality dishes paired with premium Taittinger Champagne. A total of 16 different ateliers is located around the restaurant, delighting diners in a sumptuous buffet feast.

The selection of Oysters caught my attention when I walked passed the Seafood on Ice section. They have four different types of oysters from Irish, France, New Zealand and Canada.

A very nice touch by the restaurant is that they will bring a three tier seafood tray to the table. Guests can actually relax and soak into the casual atmosphere, enjoying the brunch while enjoying the beautiful sea view.

The seafood on ice section is really impressive with the 4 different types of crustaceans. There are Mud Crabs, Tourteax Crab, Boston Lobster, Brown Crab, Dungeness Crab and Flower Crab. My favourite is the Dungeness crab which has a lot of eggs and roes inside the shell.

Smoked salmon is rather common on buffet spread but Marinated Coffee Salmon definitely is something new and delicious for me.

Fresh sashimi and sushi are also available among the buffet spread.

At the Alfresco area, the noodle and live seafood station will delight guest that is looking for some Asian flavours. Noticed the wok in the background of the picture, love how the chef wok fried the Sambal Mussels a la minute.  You can also order your stir fried noodles here.

Just beside the noodle and live seafood section is the Indian food section. Do not miss this section. Their roti prata and curry is pretty good too.

From the cooked food section, I tried some of the dishes such as the Beef Rendang, Sambal Long Beans and Braised Pig Trotter. I wasn't having much expectation of these dishes but they surprise me in the execution. The kitchen must have a chef that knows his Asian dishes well.

Another appreciation I like about the Sunday Champagne Brunch at Sofitel Sentosa is that the chefs will actually periodically go around the tables with the different offerings from the buffet spread, bringing the food right to the guest's table. This is probably the very first hotel in Singapore to do this. The chef bringing the dim sum baskets around the tables has the deepest impression for me. I thought that is a good idea and it brings some local flavours, not the food but the whole experience into the Sunday brunch, just like how it is done in traditional dim sum house.

What got everyone excited at the end of the Sunday brunch is the handcrafted truffles. The sweet delights come with varies flavours in it and everyone was popping one after another truffles, to find out what mysterious flavours have the pastry chef comes up with.
