It is great to know Zafferano at Ocean Financial Centre is bringing back their monthly Champagne Brunch, "The Italian Table" which will take place on every last Saturday of the month. Diners will get to enjoy an array of enticing appetisers, selection of pasta and risotto, mains and dessert, accompanied by unlimited flow of champagne and spumante.
Live Seasonal Oyster 4.5/5
We started with some Live Seasonal Oyster which is creamy and juicy. Do note that the oysters are not free flow and they are only 2 for each pax.
Italian Burrata and Tomatoes 4.2/5
The soft and creamy Burrata is imported from from Italy, serves together with sweet Italian tomatoes, drizzled with fragrant olive oil.
Marinated Salmon, Avruga Caviar 4.2/5
Selection of Cold Cuts 4.5/5
For those that love sashimi, you will be delighted with the marinated Salmon with avruga caviar that is fresh and thickly sliced. Not to forget the selection of Cold Cuts that is perfect to go with a few glasses of champagne.
Tomato and Bread Tuscan Thick Soup, Parmesan Crumble 4/5
The Tomato and Bread Tuscan Thick Soup has a texture like a mash, elevated with the topping of parmesan crumble.
Gratinated Hokkaido Scallop 4.2/5, Polenta Maize Flour Cake and Cream Codfish 4.2/5
For some delectable bite size appetisers, there are the Gratinated Hokkaido Scallop and Polenta Maize Flour Cake with Cream Codfish. I prefer the plump scallop covered with layers of texture from the bread, parsley, pine nuts and raisin toppings.
Stewed Mussels in Pepper Broth with Rosemary Croutons 4.2/5
Great for soaking the bread with the delicious broth is the Stewed Mussels in Pepper Broth with Rosemary Croutons. Thought the mussel is smaller in size but they are really sweet.
Superfine Risotto Acquerello 4.2/5
Moving to the pasta and risotto, we had risotto, gnocchi and agnolotti. First is the Superfine 'Risotto Acquerello' that has been cooked to an enjoyable al dente bite. Four different cheeses are added, coating the rice grains, giving it the depth and robustness. Shaved summer truffle is added, lifting and rounding the whole enjoyment.
Baked potato Gnocchi Sorrentina Style 4.5/5
Having been to Zafferano, I know how good is their gnocchi. The Baked Potato Gnochhi Sorrentina Style did not disappoint with its soft and pillow texture. Gnocchi itself is bland but this is so tasty with the tomato sauce and mozzarella cheese.
House-made Veal Agnolotti 4.2/5
Looks like golden ingots are the House-made Veal Agnolotti with spinach and hazelnuts. The little parcels are stuffed with flavoursome veal stuffing with the hazelnuts giving them a nutty finishing.
Duck Breast with Onion Compote 3/5
Seabass Mediterranean Style 4.5/5
For the mains, there are the Duck Breast with Onion Compote and Seabass Mediterranean Style. I find the duck breast a bit tough and I have a hard time slicing it up. For the seabass, it is cooked in a delicious sauce mixture of olives, tomato, fresh thyme rosemary potatoes and sauteed vegetables. The fish is also moist and tender.
Chocolate Mousse with Vanilla Cone 4.2/5
Don't forget to save some space for the dessert bar. If you have a sweet tooth, you will be in for a sweet selection of desserts such as Chocolate Mousse with Vanilla Cone, Meringue with Ricotta Cream and Mixed Berries, Chocolate Brownies with Pistachio Mousse, Minty Lemon Tart and Almond Cake Mascarpone Cream.
