WRX Gourmet Brunch 2011

Held outside the Maritime Experiential Musuem and Aquarium, Resorts World Sentosa
The Wine Restaurant Experience 2011 brought nine esteemed chefs together at its Gourmet Brunch buffet event yesterday.

The four hour (11am to 3pm) brunch at Maritime Experiential Museum and Aquarium, Resorts World Sentosa, also featured a bevvy of wines and bubbly (see official page for full list).

So much food at the WRX2011 Gourmet Brunch!
There was so much food (check out the menu), it was impossible to try everything.

Here are the chefs who lent muscle to the event:

The Bakery, Carvery, Cheese, Local Delights, Salad Bar & Soup stations were provided by Resorts World Sentosa.

Kheema Pav from Yantra
Hubby liked best the Kheema Pav from Yantra. It's like murtabak on a bun!

Kurobuta pork belly by Francois Mermilliod of Absinthe
My personal favourite was the pan-fried Kurobuta pork belly with daikon and star anise by by Francois Mermilliod of Absinthe. The flavours are very Asian, and blend well with the caramelised fatty goodness melting in your mouth.

I guess the brunch is a good way to sample in one convenient location what the nine restaurants offer. It also gives you the opportunity to meet the chefs who were personally there, diligently dishing out their specialties, and explaining what's behind each delicious morsel.

My only hope is that for future events, we can have air-conditioning! The heat and humidity can really kill your appetite!


  1. The pan-fried Kurobuta pork belly looks like the perfect gourmet snack... for any time of day! (And this is me still greedy after my siew yoke dinner, hehe.)

  2. There is never enough pork belly - siew yoke or otherwise! :)
