Crab Buffet at Brizo Restaurant & Bar
Brizo Restaurant & Bar located at Park Hotel Clarke Quay is having a "Crazy about Crabs" Buffet for a limited time only. FoodPrints were among the invited bloggers to have a preview of the spread and we bring in the review.
The spread includes 19 types of crabs dishes, including the ones you could order from tze char stalls to cold selections and deep fried options. Some notable options include:
Signature Heavenly Fragrance Crab, Laksa Crab, Butter Crab, Baked Crab, Alaskan Crab Legs, Steamed XO Crab and Crab Fried rice. There are also non-crab dishes like chicken and stir fry vegetables, sushi and sashimi. Oh yes, there's also a dessert bar, that includes mini cornetto... AND mini magnums. (You heard right.)
We started off with the Crab Laksa. The gravy was incredibly good. We suspect it has nothing to doo with the crab added separately. If not for the spread available, we would have seconds or even third helpings.
More of ketchup crab than chilli crabs. If you like it with a little more spice kick, try the Signature Heavenly Fragrance Crab which in our opinion, it is the best dish that day. The homemade sauce really gave the kick and the dried shrimps added the extra omph to the dish.
Basically, anything that had butter in it was great that day. The pepper crab, butter crab and baked crab.
The salted egg yolk crab was a disappointment though.
Hot selections. The Indian Curry Crab was REALLY spicy. You have been warned.
Everyone are given tools to eat and gloves too!
And yes! The dessert bar was really awesome too. The cakes are surprisingly the best selections (besides the magnums). The chocolate royaltine and strawberry shortcake are the stars.
Overall, the buffet represent a great deal if you are looking for variety of tastes. The crabs used were mainly medium sized and the meat may not be the firmer types that you are probably used to for bigger crabs. They do serve the bigger sized crabs, especially in the steamed XO version, so do look out for it. At $55+ per person, we think it is a steal for a varied taste. But if you just love one particular favourite flavour, it may probably serve you better to go to your favourite restaurant for it.
