(SPOT.ph) Weekends are always festive occasions. You celebrate the end of the week, you celebrate the start of the week. And in this paragraph full of the word "celebrate," it's only right that you have champagne. New World Hotel is making weekends bubblier with the Chandon Sunday Brunch. From 11:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. every Sunday, Café 1228 will serve champagne with their buffet, and, like the food, it's unlimited.
The Chandon may be enjoyed chilled as is or as a mimosa, mixed with your choice from the fruit juices available. The drinks come with the international buffet, which features everything from Japanese and Chinese to Western and Filipino, prepared by Chef Ivan Chieregatti and his team.
Start off with a spread of freshly baked breads; cheeses like Brie, Tallegio, and Pecorino with black truffle; and charcuterie including prosciutto di Parma, coppa and salame felino, which are sliced upon order. Dried fruits and fruit jams are on hand to add texture and flavor to your cured meat.
The Chinese station has dim sum, steamed buns and noodle soups, while the Filipino section has favorites like kalderetang kambing, tinolang manok, bistek, and lechon. Cafe 1228 impresses with their seafood selection glistening with fresh thick-cut tuna, blue marlin, and salmon sharing space with shucked oysters, prawns, crabs, and slipper lobsters.
There are live kitchens ready to cook your preferred meat-lamb chops, beef tenderloin, pork medallions, chicken fillets-as well as fresh pastas like tagliatelle and gnocchi.
There's no shortage in variety when it comes to the desserts. The spread includes kakanin staples like puto and cassava cake, sliced fresh fruits, tarts and strudels, classics such as brownies and bread pudding, ice cream with different sauces and toppings, create-your-own crepe, and what they call fruit sushi, which is fresh fruit balls on biko.
Eat everything with a seemingly bottomless glass of bubbly, and you'll wish the weekend would never end.
The Chandon Sunday Brunch is P1,999 per head; P1,699 without champagne. Prices exclude service charge. Some dishes may change without prior notice. Reservations are encouraged.
