Luxe. Sunday. Brunch. Buffet. Each word clearly defines what any stressed person would want to have in their life right now. And when these words are glued together, it all comes to nothing, but perfection. This is exactly what Mirèio can only offer to its guests every weekend.
Located inside the grand Hotel Raffles in Makati, it's where friends and families gather for that much-awaited Sunday affair. This weekly event offers a gastronomic feast of epic and premium proportions, with live cooking stations featuring continental fare, highlighted by Provençal and French favourites.
Prices are not too friendly for the average eater, but if you're up for the experience, it's priced at PHP 2,750 per person, and if you wish to enjoy brunch with free-flowing Champagne, wine, and cocktails, a brunch & drinks package is available for PHP 4,200 per person.
Pretty steep, right? To be honest, the brunch and drinks package is very much worth it after all.
I mean, yes, I'm in a hotel and you should expect that things will get a bit expensive. But if you're like me, spending a bit more means that I have to give myself a good reason to do it. The good news is that there is more than one good reason on why I need to give in once again to Raffle's Luxe Sunday Brunch Buffet.
This flavourful mid-day meal features a luscious and stunning spread of salads, including fresh salads and appetizers, a tartare station, and a steamingly delicious risotto station created to your liking with porcini, truffles, and aged Parmesan.
Savouries include a live carving station highlighting tender Wagyu beef where you can choose your preferred doneness, along with hot-off-the-oven roasted Porchetta, lamb, a bountiful selection of fresh crustaceans prepared in different ways such as lobster, tiger prawns, crabs together with choices of clams and mussels.
Culinary specialties also take the spotlight such as bouillabaisse, soft boiled egg with foie gras foam and seared foie gras - if you can't get enough of foie gras.
A grazing spread lined with a selection of cheese hailing from regions all over Europe, charcuterie, homemade terrines, and antipasti.
Cap off the lunch with an exquisite variety of desserts such as Mirèio’s classic lavender brûlée, dark chocolate Black Emperor cake, pistachio and raspberry religieuse, fruity calamansi meringue éclair, and a wide array of macarons, among others.
And as for drinks? Be like Cersei Lannister and give in to fine wines, Moet, Frosé, Prosecco, Bloody Mary and more of Mirèio’s other special cocktails and mocktails.
It's truly a feast for your senses, and your tummy will thank you for it. And as a bonus, I'm dropping some favorites here and letting you know what you should be getting when you try this luxurious buffet....
