Rockin’ brunch at Seasonal Tastes


Westin Singapore’s Seasonal Tastes restaurant offers a Sunday brunch with fresh food and rocking beats

With the return of the Westin brand to Singapore comes a champagne brunch buffet at the hotel restaurant Seasonal Tastes.

Seasonal Tastes champagne brunch buffet, known as The Brunch Beats ($158++), is a sky-high treat on the 32nd floor with DJ Lindo Martinez spinning deep house grooves as you eat.

Food and More Food

The buffet is smaller than other champagne brunches I’d been to before but I attribute that to the limited space inside Seasonal Tastes. A welcome drink of orange juice and Veuve Clicquot champagne starts you off before you enter the bright and airy restaurant.

Your eyes first settle on the cheese counter and the viennoiserie counter, which is directly opposite, just before the seafood, meat and cooked food. Right in the middle is the sushi and salad bar. I headed straight for the seafood counter.

Did you know that you can request for the staff to peel a plate of fresh prawns for you if you don’t want to get your hands dirty? How spoilt can one get? There are also three different types of oysters from France, Canada and America, as well as lobster and crab on ice.

The cooked food section is a little confusing as it serves a mix of Asian fare such as stir-fried vegetables, as well as some western fare such as moussaka and mashed potatoes. It also has a Thai Style Suckling Pig, but I concede that it is a little hard to pick apart.

The steak counter is where it can get slightly odd. As usual, you get to pick the particular cut of steak you want, with the three common options of sirloin, tenderloin or ribeye, and then you specify your doneness to the chef.

The first time I went, I wanted medium rare and I ended up with rare. The second time I went, incognito, I got it well done instead of medium rare.

The desserts are a mix of local kuehs, a green tea fondue fountain and ice cream. The avocado ice cream is highly recommended. And of course the champagne that just keeps flowing.
