IMPRESSIONS Sunday Brunch Buffet – A Foodie’s Buffet Favorite :)
December 28, 2012
IMPRESSIONS by Maxim Hotel has an interesting Sunday Brunch buffet strategy — they only have 3 stations (hot, cold, and dessert) that serve limited but high quality food using only the finest ingredients in the buffet.
Foodies love it because it is not overwhelming but satisfying, and you can savor each of the carefully curated item in the buffet by Chef Cyrille Soenen also known as Cicou. Also, foodies love the live stations where the food is only cooked or prepared upon order — as many as you like.
Here are some tips to enjoy the Impressions Sunday Buffet and highlighting our favorites:
TIP: When eating meat, make sure to drink hot water or tea so that the meat fats and cholesterol are washed down instead of being solidified in your arteries when you drink cold water after meal.
Honestly, with a lot of good food around we forgot to order pasta. If you are going with kids, the pasta station is definitely one of your first stops 🙂
An awesome meal is not complete without the best desserts. Impressions dessert selection was obviously impressive 🙂
The best seller and signature Impressions dessert is the ★ Chocolate Ganache with Fleur de Sel Pie, a salted chocolate cake that is only available during the Sunday Brunch buffet.
Fresh Fruits and Marshmallows with Chocolate dipping stations.
Another favorite is the pudding-like dessert called ★ Chocolate Clafoutis with Cherry.
For sansrival lovers, try the Sansrival Balls.
Impressions’ Modern Christmas Log
They have limited dessert gummy bear selection for kids. Don’t miss the Cream Puff hidden below with an exotic mousse inside.
You can also order an open-face crepe and home- made gelato (Ferrero and Salted Caramel are our favorite flavors).
(Tip: try the Beringer Moscato wine to pair with your dessert 🙂
Finally, order a freshly-cooked churros with
… hot coffee to finally end the impressive Impressions Sunday Brunch Buffet.
Overall, we love the attention to quality in every dish that is cooked or prepared upon order. We enjoyed the seafood and dessert selection the most and not much of the meat carving. What makes this buffet special is the extraordinary attention of the servers who are always ready to serve you with a smile.
It is an affordable luxury that every foodie can enjoy specially when celebrating special milestones and events like welcoming the new year 2013 🙂 It’s one of the best Sunday Brunch Buffet in Manila!
