Sunday Brunch at Melia Yangon sounds no stranger to Yangonites. The signature restaurant, The Market’s rich buffet – ranging from western-style BBQ and seafood to Asian dim sum and sushi – is exactly what you’re looking for to refill your energy after a late Saturday-night party.
Presently, The Market has introduced Super Sunday Brunch lining up with Norwegian king crabs, wagyu beef, lobster paella, sea urchin sushi inclusive of free-flowing juices, wines and Sangria, which are more than make up for the extra US$10.
As you buzz into the restaurant, you will be baffled by more than 100 items displayed on nearly a dozen counters. You can simply start your way from salad and seafood counters where you’ll find customisable salads, blanched king crabs, mud and sea crabs, prawns and oysters.
Pair them with white wine and the spicy Thai seafood sauce to tingle your taste, the friendly staff will help you crack open the shellfish, of course if you’d need help. For appetisers, you have different kinds of terrines. If you aren’t sure which to choose, foie gras would show you a way.
Then make your shift to BBQ counters where you’ll find wagyu prime ribs, salmon cuts and river prawns – all go well with a glass of red wine. Choose from the preferred level of doneness for beef and if you’re into curry, you can order prawns and crabs with five different bases. Make your order and sit back, it will come to you.
Lobster Paella, the signature dish of the executive chef, is the highlight of the Super Sunday brunch. This Spanish rice dish takes some time to cook and once it’s freshly out of oven, the chefs carry off with the platter to serve at your table. The taste is rich and quite different from the rice we have every day at home since it is directly sourced from Spain. Let it flows with the Sangria for more Spanish vibes.
On Chinese counter, the roasted pork is upgraded to more Tender, Crispy-Skinned Whole Suckling Pig and what’s more – the Crunchy Fried Pork Belly. Don’t forget to try salmon and shitake dim sum, too!
You have to be swift if you want to taste sea urchin sushi because it’s highly demanded by the brunchers. Don’t be down if you miss it. The king crab maki and melt-in-your-mouth salmon sashimi will be next.
On the dessert station, the two five-tier chocolate fountains, white and dark, are the major attractions. Indulge your sweet-tooth with white and dark chocolate cakes, tarts, various bite-size delicacies and 12 different kinds of homemade ice-cream. Following is a cheese and bread room, where you can make your own sandwiches from blue cheese, ham, olives and salami.
Overall, the Super Sunday Brunch is a unique experience where you can only enjoy it once per month – on the first Sunday of every month, price at US$ 58 available only from 11:30am to 3:30pm. For reservation and more, kindly contact 01 934 5000.
