Indulge in a newly refreshed Sunday Brunch at Oscar's (Conrad Centennial Singapore). The Supercharged Sunday Brunch will feature a extended seafood bar (stocked with fresh seafood and oysters), a 4m-long salad bar, premium roasts (including the famous 'London Duck') as well as a curated selection of international favourites. There is also an impressive dessert spread where you can end off (or start) your Sunday indulgence at.
While I have not been to Sunday Brunch at Oscar's before, I have dined there on multiple occasions - mostly during breakfast when I enjoy a staycation at the property. I personally feel that the spread is pretty impressive (even more so if you love seafood and the healthier dishes). While it definitely does not rival The Line (at the Shangri-La Hotel, Singapore) in terms of variety, I did think that the quality of seafood here is better.
The seafood station with different kinds of freshly shucked oysters, Boston lobsters, prawns, scallops and crayfish (amongst other various treasures of the sea) is definitely one of the most popular stations in the buffet - you will see most Singaporeans here filling their plates. It is also worth noting that the lobsters here are flown in fresh and not frozen; you will definitely taste a difference!
If you love the London duck (made famous by Four Seasons Chinese Restaurant and London Fat Duck) and you think that unlimited servings of this sound like a splendid idea, then you should definitely check out the Roasted London Duck with tamarind and raspberry sauce at Oscar's! I personally prefer it on its own because it's that good!
Meat-lovers will also enjoy the spread of gloriously-roasted proteins - it really is an afternoon of feasting so be sure to bring an empty stomach! The roast section that change on a weekly basis (always a good idea to give the restaurant a call to find out what's being featured on the week you go) and you can expect other meats like the slow-roasted suckling pig done in different ways.
Interestingly enough, I think that the oriental and Asian spread are both done pretty well at Oscar's. I really love the pork belly that is shown above. Other notable dishes include the famous Laksa (from the noodle station outside - don't miss that out!), braised pork knuckles and various Indian dishes (try the tandoori!).
As I have mentioned previously, you will get a fair share of healthier dishes here at Oscar's so you can eat away without feeling guilty - save your calories for the Champagne instead. The organic pasta and risotto station serves up pretty delicious pastas - my personal tip? Get a plate of this and snag a few Boston lobsters on your way out. The 4-metre long salad bar (located just across from the dessert station) consists of an extensive selection of fresh greens and close to 30 toppings. In fact, you will be able to select from super-food like quinoa, ready-made salads or opt for healthy juices that is packed with fresh berries and chia seeds for that immunity boost.
Desserts is also a very serious affair here at the Oscar's Supercharged Sunday Brunch. Apart from the usual suspects, opt for the flambéed Crêpe Suzette (made fresh in front of your very eyes) with your choice of Grand Marnier or Conintreau (or have both, separately), the special pancakes or the green tea panna cotta. The chocolate fountain should also not be missed!
The Supercharged Sunday Brunch at Oscar's (Conrad Centennial Singapore) is definitely something to watch out for - particularly so if you love fresh seafood and healthier options. There is also a free-flowing Laurent-Perrier Brut Champagne option (not many hotels in Singapore serve this label free-flow) so this is also something to consider when picking your destination.
