The Ritz-Carlton SuperBrunch

It's "The Buffet" in Singapore that is held two times a year.

If Gardens by the Bay is like bringing the plants all around the world into 2 Glass Domes and a few theme gardens on 250 acres of land, The Ritz-Carlton SuperBrunch is bringing different kinds of food from the world and spread it over the Ritz's Greenhouse Restaurant, over the foyer to the Chihuly Lounge at the other side.

The wife and I was at the 8th installment of the bi-annual SuperBrunch on 21 October 2012.
Thanks to the invitation of the PR team of The Ritz-Carlton Millenia Singapore, we got to enjoy this feast and also to take some photos before everyone starts eating.

The Ritz-Carlton Superbrunch

This was the big team that prepared the SuperBrunch. I think probably all the F&B staff of the whole hotel were involved!

The Ritz-Carlton Superbrunch

I will just let the photos do the talking!
I was particularly attracted to the lobster ice sculpture!

For those who like cold seafood, here's some of it! There were more!

The Ritz-Carlton Superbrunch

The SuperBrunch must be quite special for the staff as well, as you can see them posing for photos together too!

The Ritz-Carlton SuperbrunchThe Ritz-Carlton Superbrunch

OK, I don't know why the roast duck was there in that section. ;-)

The Ritz-Carlton Superbrunch

You can see them excited and smiling! They are mostly camera shy, but I happen to capture some photos of them before the SuperBrunch started.

Not that I am saying they don't work their hearts out during the usual buffets, they are particularly proud and excited on SuperBrunch days!

The Ritz-Carlton Superbrunch

I usually skip this section when there's so much other food!
Don't judge me please. ;-)

These little bowls of deliciousness were things not to be missed.

The Ritz-Carlton SuperbrunchThe Ritz-Carlton Superbrunch

These were on the serving trays, but in the same area.

I suggest taking 1 piece and sharing it with you partner. You would not be able to try everything in the SuperBrunch!

The Ritz-Carlton Superbrunch

If you got a soft spot for flowers, I think the florist in the hotel must be working doubly hard too!
Flower arrangement everywhere! So artistically and beautifully set up!

The Ritz-Carlton Superbrunch

Salad area. Love the way they used the props to put the food!

The Ritz-Carlton Superbrunch

Those who like sweet stuff, this will drive you totally wild!

The Ritz-Carlton Superbrunch

Ahem, beautiful isn't it?
No one was seen plucking and biting into it. LOL!

The Ritz-Carlton SuperbrunchThe Ritz-Carlton Superbrunch

If you have been following me on instagram, you probably would have seen the ones I ate.
Oh.... I can eat a lot and a lot of these!

Happy Folks again!
All so busy! It's 5 minutes before the SuperBrunch starts!

The Ritz-Carlton Superbrunch

The Greenhouse does look different ya?
They transformed the whole place!

At the foyer, the tuna was waiting....

The Ritz-Carlton Superbrunch

I heard it whisper to me, eat me. You won't regret it....

The Ritz-Carlton Superbrunch

Assorted sushi all ready for the huge crowd to devour!

The Ritz-Carlton Superbrunch

I love these!
How many can you finish?

These were my favourites that day!

The Ritz-Carlton Superbrunch

Yup, I skipped this section as well. Though I was so tempted by them!

The Ritz-Carlton Superbrunch

I started this post 2 weeks ago, and I am now finishing it up in Paris. 
I see this everywhere and smelling so good!

The Ritz-Carlton Superbrunch

For those who like noodles and soup. See, it's not only the eaters nowadays that take photos. The chefs themselves are taking photos. ;-) Maybe the chef has his own blog or instagram account!

The Ritz-Carlton Superbrunch

So artistically delicious isn't it?

The Ritz-Carlton Superbrunch

Are you a fan of these?

The Ritz-Carlton Superbrunch

The section with the longest queue!
(Yes, they were shy and keep looking away!)

The Ritz-Carlton SuperbrunchThe Ritz-Carlton Superbrunch

Everyone was queuing to get the various caviar!

The Ritz-Carlton Superbrunch

The Ritz-Carlton Superbrunch

More cured stuff and dips and mixes!

The Ritz-Carlton Superbrunch

If you have never been to the SuperBrunch, it's like going to a gourmet deli but only better!
Look at how artistically and beautiful the food had been crafted to be displayed.

The Ritz-Carlton Superbrunch

Not only can you admire the food, you can pick them up and try too!

The Ritz-Carlton Superbrunch

It might sound expensive, but if you look at the things they serve here, you can justify it.

The Ritz-Carlton Superbrunch

Come to think of it, in the various gourmet deli, you don't see them so beautifully displayed!
They are usually behind the counters. Here's you can pick them up and eat straight away! 

The Ritz-Carlton Superbrunch

Any of these food tempted you yet?

The Ritz-Carlton Superbrunch

Look! Look! Serving food in tins!

The Ritz-Carlton Superbrunch

Zooming in for you to be tempted by these sardines!

The Ritz-Carlton Superbrunch

I was told there are hundreds of cheese that you can try here!

The Ritz-Carlton Superbrunch The Ritz-Carlton SuperbrunchThe Ritz-Carlton Superbrunch The Ritz-Carlton Superbrunch

More photos of them at my Flickr feed if you are interested ;-)
Those who like cheese, probably worth paying and getting in here just for the cheese!

There's Italian, French, British, Swiss, German and Spanish cheeses.

The Ritz-Carlton Superbrunch

There are different pricing, you can opt for different champagne to go with your meal.

The Ritz-Carlton Superbrunch

Oh look at this piece of 24 hour roasted Australian wagyu!

The Ritz-Carlton SuperbrunchThe Ritz-Carlton Superbrunch The Ritz-Carlton SuperbrunchThe Ritz-Carlton Superbrunch

This section was my favourite. It's the section that I had more than 1 serving of my favourite meats!

The Ritz-Carlton Superbrunch

Look at these alien robot macarons!

The Ritz-Carlton Superbrunch

Unless you totally don't take sweet stuff, this will tempt you!
Too cute beyond description! Too marvellous for words!

The Ritz-Carlton Superbrunch

The Ritz-Carlton Superbrunch

They come in all sizes! This huge one was eaten by someone too!
The chocolate was slowly being 'plucked' off!

The Ritz-Carlton Superbrunch The Ritz-Carlton SuperbrunchThe Ritz-Carlton Superbrunch

The Ritz-Carlton Superbrunch

Sickening sweet and tempting isn't it?
I was a happy boy in Sugar Town!

I think this was so beautiful!
It's floating on water!

The Ritz-Carlton Superbrunch

I love the florist here!
Yes, I am attracted to flowers, because mum  and some aunties used to arrange flowers for church and we always look at how they were arranged.
