LaBrezza at St Regis Singapore: Domenica Italiana Weekend Brunch

Picture warm and wonderful family weekend feasts, with food lovingly cooked by grandmothers, dads or cousins. Everything is generously laid out, and the food just keeps coming.

Armando Aristarco, Chef de Cuisine at LaBrezza, St Regis Singapore, wants to recreate the spirit of such bountiful weekend feasts with Domenica Italiana.

It's a real feast indeed, and we easily spent five hours over prosecco and mirthful conversation.

Here's what the feast entails:

Seafood on Ice

Seafood on Ice
Lobsters! Prawns! Tuna! Oysters! Seabass! Calamari! Mussels!



The excellent antipasti is served tableside, so you don't have to move a finger.
• Octopus Salad with Celery, Black Olives and Lemon Dressing
• Traditional Eggplant Parmigiana
• Frittata with Potato and Truffle
• Crispy Garlic Bread with Tomato and Oregano
• Buffalo Mozzarella and Parma Ham
• Beef and Veal Meatballs in Tomato Sauce

Prima Piatti

Potato Gnocchi with Porcini Mushrooms, Lobster, Cherry Tomato and Basil

Oh good gnocchi is such a godsend. I love the yielding yet gently chewy texture of these potato dumplings.

Chef's Surprise: Artichokes
We also had a Chef’s Surprise dish - beautiful artichokes!

Secondi Piatti

Seabass In Carpione
Seabass In Carpione
Deep-fried Seabass, Pickled Vegetables “In Carpione”
Oh I chose this and didn't regret it one bit. The seabass was piping hot, crisp on the outside, and flaked beautifully when you put a fork in it. The sweet flesh went well with the lightly pickled vegetables. Carpione seems to refer to a Piedmont cooking method; it's a quick pickling technique in vinegar, salt, sugar, white wine and olive oil.

Vitello Alla Pizzaiola

Pan-seared Veal Striploin, Pizzaiola Sauce, Black Olives, Oregano
This looked really good too. I'm a red meat girl but I was most happy with my fish.

Melanzana, Provola e Pomodoro

Stew of Eggplant, Breadcrumb-crusted Mozzarella, Roma Tomato Coulis
This is the vegetarian choice, made quite substantial by the deep-fried mozzarella patty.

Cheese Platter

Enjoy a selection of four cheeses served tableside - Taleggio, Pecorino Sardo, Gorgonzola, and Robbiola.

Deconstructed Tiramisu

Ever wanted a tiramisu that is done exactly how you want it? Extra coffee strength? Extra cream? Less cocoa powder? You can construct your own just the way you like it with

DIY Tiramisu
I made my own! Lots of everything. It tastes extra good when you have fun putting it together.
