Any seafood lover worth his or her salt will definitely have heard of Brizo Restaurant’s Seafood buffets. Brizo's buffet spreads are rotated regularly, and their latest offerings which you’ll be able to indulge in from 1st April to 30th June 2016 is the Viva Seafood Fiesta, a Spanish-inspired buffet!
Starting at the cold dishes counter, you get Brizo’s staples such as Chilean scallops, white clams, blue flower crabs and snow crab legs, all fresh and sweet!
Moving on to the appetizers – there are several Spanish tapas for you to sample, including Tuna Empanadas, Gazpacho, and Tortilla Patatas a la Espanol. Don’t fill up your tummy too much though, save some room for the main event!
If you like your crabs, you’ll definitely love the Creamy Butter Rock Crab, as well as the crowd favourite Singapore Chilli Crab with Fried Mantou. These are familiar, delicious flavours that go down really well.
For something a little more exotic, there’s also the ArrosNegre (Valencia Squid Ink Rice with Seafood), as well as the Gambas Al Ajillo (Spanish-style Garlic Shrimp). Maybe it was tough to be able to match up to the standard that the chilli crab had set, but we felt that these two dishes weren’t that spectacular.
What we did like, though, was the Roast Pork Belly with Smoked Paprika carving. The pork belly was just the right amount of fatty, and was seasoned perfectly. The pork came out and was wiped out almost instantly/
We also enjoyed the Lobster in a Pan, which contains an entire Maine lobster with tiger prawns, mussels, as well as pasta. You get to pick between a garlic cream sauce, or a cioppino sauce.
The desserts bar featured a Crème Catalana which we found extremely sweet, Durian Pengat, other assorted pastries that weren’t particularly note-worthy. What we fancied though was the chocolate fondue station. Mini magnums are also available for consumption (which we had quite a few sticks), however, we were pretty disappointed that there weren’t any churros present!
Overall review: shauneeie3hands. Brizo still does their signature dishes such as the chilli crab to perfection. its new Spanish concept is still good value for money, considering the range and quality of seafood available!
