Basilico @ Regent Singapore - Basilico's Epic Buffet Brunches are Back

IMG_6780

Located on the second floor of Regent Singapore, Basilico is known for offering one of the best Italian buffets in town, emphasising fresh ingredients and classic Italian elements such as a rotisserie, antipasti, and pasta, wood-fired pizzas, and a walk-in cheese cellar. Following the loosening of local restrictions of the Covid pandemic, Basilico has also returned with their epic brunch buffets, where diners can walk around and enjoy the spread at their leisure.

The brunch menu features an indulgent selection of antipasti such as the aged Parma ham and sweet cantaloupe, Putignano Burrata and toasted Ciabatta. We also tried the Pancetta Steccata, Mortadella, Prosciutoo di Parma, and Salame Rosette.

Not to be missed is their famed cheese cellar which housed an impressive selection of 40 artisanal kinds of cheese, such as the Ciambella di Bufala (buffalo's milk cheese), Ricotta, and Burrata with truffles or caviar.

The Seafood on Ice features fresh selections such as the king scallop in lemon and herbs, poached tiger prawns, clams, Boston lobsters, and mussels.

Manzo Grigliato (grilled beef)

Branzino alla Griglia (grilled seabass)

Make your way to the grilled meats sections for the Grilled Beef, Chicken or Seabass.

Penne with tomato sauce 1

If you're hankering for some carbs, the Spaghetti with briny seafood squid ink sauce and Penne with tomato sauce will satisfy your tastebuds.

Pancetta di maiale (crispy pork belly) 1

The Pancetta di maiale (crispy pork belly) and Foie Gras were my absolute favourite. Tender and juicy with an extremely crackling crispy skin, I had heaps of the former, while the latter was prepped a la minute for freshness and just melts in the mouth like butter.

Mousse al cioccolato (white chocolate berry mousse) 1

Finanziatore di Mirtilli (blueberry financier) 2

End the feast on a sweet note with desserts such as the Mousse al Cioccolato (white chocolate berry mousse), Torta al Caramello (caramel cake), Finanzitore di Mirtilli (blueberry financer) and Torta di Mele (apple tart). The Torta di Riccota e Tartufo (Truffle Burnt Cheesecake) was an interesting dessert. Infused with truffle and topped with black truffle, the burnt cheesecake was deliciously creamy, and the addition of the truffle aroma elevates the entire experience.

If cakes are not enough for your sweettooth, opt for the Vanilla Pana Cotta, Traditional Tiramisu, Chocolate Mousse, and Mango Mousse, or head for more desserts over at the gelato counter with flavours including vanilla, chocolate, coconut, raspberry sorbet, lemon sorbet, and figs sorbet.
