Sunday Brunch is a delightful affair. And The Ritz Carlton Shenzhen Flavorz Restaurant’s Sunday Brunch definitely brings a smile to those who like to relax and indulge during the weekend. With a lavish spread, impeccable service, fresh seasonal produce and innovative culinary delights, this buffet definitely lives up to its reputation of being the “Best Sunday Brunch” in Shenzhen.
Seafood on ice
The chic all-day dining restaurant is styled after a market concept featuring brunch favourites such as eggs benedict, extensive selection of seafood, fresh sushi, cured meats, assorted cheeses, grilled meats, noodles prepared à la minute and a lovely repertoire of desserts.
Assorted breads and cheeses
Other than the flavourful cuisine, what really impressed me about this buffet is that everything is served to my table and food is not just passively laid on the table. Throughout the meal, the wait staff is zealously rushing to bring food to my table, making me feel pampered.
The fresh seafood is a hit with many seafood aficionados. Tickle your palate with fresh oysters, crab and prawns.
The Japanese section is decent with an interesting selection of sushi. I expected sashimi but did not see it on the buffet.
For the appetisers, my personal favourites are the seared tuna, smoked salmon, prawns with mango and iberico ham.
Double-boiled snow fungus, pear and pork rib soup
The double-boiled snow fungus, pear and pork rib soup is tasty and nourishing.
The egg benedict tasted okay but would have been better if it was prepared on the spot. What is lacking is an egg station which would have made the brunch buffet more complete.
For the mains, you can look forward to teriyaki salmon, fried rice, stir-fried Chinese noodles, Chinese roast items such as roast pork belly and roast duck, lamb shank, grilled rack of lamb, steak and sausages from the grill section and Chinese wok-fried delights.
Take your pick from the fish section and let the expert chefs grill them for you right before your eyes.
The Thai section
There is also a Thai section where the chef prepares Tom Yum soup complete with condiments such as mushrooms and prawns.
Different varieties of noodles
Relish noodles prepared with your choice of soup and condiments such as mushrooms, cabbage, enoki, pork balls, fish cake, beancurd puff, quail egg and more.
Conclude your afternoon of indulgence with the lovely repertoire of desserts such as chocolate brownie, rose cupcake, mango dome, cheese cake, pistachio nut cake, crème brûlée, guiling gao (herbal jelly), mango pudding, black glutinous coconut soup, berries trifle verrine, chocolate molten lava cake, chocolate fondue and waffles with ice cream.
The buffet is priced at RMB588 and includes free flow of juices, red, white and sparkling wine. Add RMB100 to enjoy unlimited servings of Champagne.
