H O S T E D
Kicking off at 12noon today was the inaugural #beachbrunchbeats, a once-a-month Saturday brunch party at @foc_sentosa that brings together exactly what the hashtag says.
Expect to feel like you're transported to some holiday resort the moment you arrive as the open-air venue is located on the beach, and boasts swimming pools right at the doorstep. With DJ's spinning and joined by Jax the Saxophonist a little later, music flowed as freely as the alcohol. That is assuming you are doing the $128++ freeflow option for the brunch. And I strongly suggest you do as #Delamotte Brut Champagne, gin & tonics using #GinMare and #PureBlonde beers are offered for your non-stop drinking pleasure. Teetotalers only need to pay $88++ since they aren't imbibing those.
Me being me, naturally it was the food that I got most excited about.
Where do I even begin. Well, it started innocently enough with a short graze over a spread of housebaked breads and croissants, plus glass pots of yogurt with mango sauce and fresh fruit.
I then went to the BBQ station where pork sausages, beef and fish were grilled and served in different ways, including a simple but really tasty sandwich that wow-ed.
At the other end was a "live" station (manned by Head Chef @jordinoguerapey today) where hot Spanish tapas were being made. A marvelous uber-soft omelette with a small slice of bread, Iberico ham and tomato concasse came from here. So did the brilliant grilled prawn with kimchi foam. Probably many more as well but I wouldn't know because after that point, I was pretty much immobile in my seat, as tray after tray was presented by the team of roving servers, each bearing new and enticing tapas, both hot and cold. There was no need for me to move as I helped myself to the parade of ridiculously delicious tapas and dishes that included spherical olive "bombs", patata bravas, meatballs, zucchini bikini sandwiches, mushroom croquettas, gazpacho, squid ink paella, truffled Oreos and more. It was all a blur after a while honestly. But I couldn't be happier.
Thanks again for having me join in the fun Izabela, @foc_sentosa @jordinoguerapey, @juanjo_alvarezsg.
