Bazaar @ QT
An indulgent brunch buffet – my gluttony and indulgence weren’t unprecedented! My homies and I decided to head out for brunch on weekend and we did our research. Upon hearing about the brunch buffet at the QT hotel which was decently priced, we made a beeline & were superbly amazed. We had to make a booking a few weekends in advanced to get a decent time slot for Sunday brunch and boy was it worth it!
What we ordered:
Sunday Brunch Buffet
A hot dirty chai
Bazaar has a bright, open and interactive marketplace concept. As with brunch buffets, there was freshly baked goods, pastries, desserts, fresh fruits, juices, smoothies, a hot buffet, ‘live stations’ to request for an omelette and the works!
The restaurant had a long line when we arrived but luckily we made a booking and got a table that wasn’t in the way of everyone or placed at an awkward angle that we had to be cautious of our spree. The service was pretty amazing considering that it was pretty packed as well. We left out table to get more food and when we got back, our plates were either usually cleared promptly or there wasn’t too much of a lag where we had to stand with our freshly loaded plates before having out places set again.
The juices and smoothies which were displayed in cute decent sized mini-pitchers were fresh and tasty. I ordered a dirty chai (it wasn’t part of the buffet) and it was delicious! Some of my highlights were the mushrooms in some white sauce, omelette from the live station, double baked croissants (You HAVE to try this!!!) and the desserts.
The eggs benny wasn’t that impressive and the hollandaise sauce was blah, but the waffles more than made up for it. I had a batch of the freshly made and warm waffles drizzled with syrupy goodness and was floored. My mates had them when I told them that it was lovely, but alas, their versions didn’t impress them as much as it was a tad bit cool and not-as-fresh by the time they attacked it.
I would definitely go back and plan out my strategy of food attack better the next time as I would have love to try more of the desserts and pastries.
