My previous visit to Azur was a couple of years ago for a corporate lunch when Crowne Plaza Changi Airport was newly built. I remembered the buffet spread was quite extensive showcasing some of the best local favourites. I am back at the Azur at Crowne Plaza Changi Airport to try out their new Weekend Changi Brunch menu. Azur has brought together the best of the East and West in a refreshed menu of the popular Weekend Changi Brunch featuring local and international cuisines.
German Sausages with Juniper Berry Sauerkraut and Beef Jus 4.5/5
One of the memorable items I tried at the brunch buffet is the German Sausages with Juniper Berry Sauerkraut and Beef Jus. The highlight for me is the sauerkraut, this is a must have combination for eating sausages. Some restaurants only served sausages with mustard. I am delight that Azur took the effort to prepare the juniper berry sauerkraut.
Baked Mussels with Aioli Herb 4.2/5
You will have to try the Baked Mussels with Aioli Herb. They were big and juicy, baked with the flavoursome aioli herb.
Pan Seared Fish Fillet with Yuzu Orange Sauce 3/5
The Pan Seared Fish Fillet was cooked in a delectable Yuzu Orange Sauce. The moist fish was further lifted and enhanced by the tangy sauce.
Roasted Chicken with Homemade Chilli Sauce 3/5
The Roasted Chicken with Homemade Chilli Sauce was pretty good, succulent and flavourful. Oh the chilli sauce was not spicy at all so need not worry if you can't take spicy.
Marinated Philippines Clams with White Wine and Shallots 4/5
I have always like Philippines Clams because they are quite sweet. Love the version by Azur marinated with white wine and shallots which was very addictive.
For a taste of the local hawker favourites, one can Do-It-Yourself at the Rojak counter adding in the eclectic mix of ingredients and mixed it up with the pungent shrimp paste and topped with grounded peanuts.
Prawn Noodles 3/5
The installment of the of Weekend Changi Brunch also features the Prawn Noodles from the Local Delight Noodles Bar. A good change from the usual Laksa but I still thought the latter is still a better representation of the local favourite.
I love the array of Asian and Western food at Azur Weekend Changi Brunch but I don't have a huge stomach for all the delectable food. I went for 3 rounds only while the others were shared with my dining partners. Started with some cold dishes and my favourite on the plate was the oysters and crab.
From the cooked food selections, my favourite went to the German sausages, Baked Mussels and Steak.
Definitely we need to wrap up the sumptuous lunch with a round of sweetness from the dessert section.
If you like the local version of dessert, you can try creating your own icy version of Ice Kachang and pile it with your favourite condiments, syrups and carnation milk for a decadent sweet treat.
