There are quite a number of options for Sunday brunch buffet in Singapore. Recently, I was invited to experience the new international buffet offered at Lime Restaurant from PARKROYAL on Pickering.

Perched at the entrance to the restaurant is the stunning dessert section!

Available every Sunday from 12 to 3pm, this Sunday brunch buffet promises a wide range of cuisine options. There are live stations featuring mushroom risotto, Norwegian poached eggs and pan-seared foie gras, as well as carving station offering wide selection of roasted meats including US prime rib, snapper and rack of lamb.

An international buffet wouldn’t be complete without Japanese fare.

The dessert section looks delectable, starting from jars of macarons and cakes.

Small portions of desserts such as green tea tiramisu, creme brulee, strawberry tarts etc. Spy the green tea chocolate fondue at the far left! This is quite a refreshing twist from the usual chocolate fondue, and is also less sweet.

There is also a good selection of pies and cakes to choose from.

Summing up my experience in bullet points, here is a list of my likes and dislikes about the Sunday Brunch buffet, which costs S$88++ per person including free flow of fresh juices, soft drinks, coffee and tea, and $128++ per person for additional free flow of Piper Heidsieck Champagne and selected Red/White House Wine.

Like:

  • Contemporary interior decor: PARKROYAL on Pickering is a new hotel with a stunning facade. The interior of Lime Restaurant also looks inviting, allowing patrons to truly indulge themselves on a Sunday afternoon.
  • Relaxed ambiance with attentive staff: Probably because the hotel is still new, there wasn’t a crowd on a Sunday afternoon. The staff were quite attentive and cleared the plates regularly. The chefs at the live station even served my pan seared foie gras to my table.
  • A wide variety of food options: While there are more Western food choices, there are also Thai salad and a small Chinese section.

Dislike:

  • Price: The price is comparable to Sunday brunch at The Line and Melt which feature an extensive selection of culinary delights. Notably, Melt also has several live stations featuring similar food options such as foie gras. I have been to The Line and Melt before, and comparing these 3 Sunday brunches, I feel that Lime need to be more price competitive.
  • Food selection did not match up to the price: This is linked to the first point actually. Comparing the selection of food at other brunches of similar price range, I feel that Lime should expand on the offerings at their Sunday brunch.
