  • Sunday Brunch at the Intercontinental Hotel

    Best Classic Seafood Buffet in Bangkok


    If you love seafood, champagne and more than a little indulging then there is no better place to be on a Sunday at 12:00 than lining up with those in the know at Intercontinental Bangkok’s famous buffet. Bringing together a live jazz band, impeccable service and enough food so that no-one goes home hungry, this is an experience that is definitely worth adding to your holiday to-do list. As soon as you walk into Espresso restaurant for your Sunday brunch you are greeted by a smorgasbord of food of all different varieties and origins. One of the things that made Intercontinental Hotel’s buffet noteworthy is that it really is a case of quality over quantity. Espresso restaurant is on the mezzanine floor of the Intercontinental Hotel and the Sunday brunch runs from 12:00 until 15:00. Prices start at 1,869 baht for adults  and 999 for children, exclusive of taxes and service charges.

  • Although most of the buffet is a help yourself deal, the service at Espresso restaurant is just as impressive as what you would experience if you are a guest at the Intercontinental Hotel. You are shown to your table and quickly served either a soft drink or champagne (depending on what package you book). Minutes later a whole Maine lobster appears, cracked for convenience and steamed to perfection, for you and your table to tuck into. The staff at Espresso are also busy behind the cooking stations that line the back wall of the restaurant. Here you can sample some Chinese-style duck, some freshly fried noodles with a variety of meat and fish accompaniments, or even the British classic: roast beef with Yorkshire puddings and all the trimmings. Remember to take a numbered ticket when you order, that way your freshly cooked dish will be served directly to your table as soon as it is ready.

    The seafood selection is most impressive of all, with piles of green-lipped mussels, Alaskan king crab, tiger prawns, and shrimp salad. It doesn’t stop there with a selection of freshly rolled sushi of many varieties. For me, one of the stand-out fish dishes was most definitely the salad: slices of seared, peppered tuna served with potato, green beans and sun-dried tomato accompaniment. If it’s oysters you’re after there is a special table dedicated to these, displayed on large silver platters covered in ice. The oysters here are a real draw, and they are continuously shucked throughout brunch to keep up with the demand. But that’s not all; at every cooking station there was some kind of seafood, wok-fresh noodles with shrimp, steamed prawn dumplings, bite-sized appetisers of smoked salmon.

    Although seafood makes up a significant proportion of the buffet, those who are not so keen on the flavours of the sea can head straight over to the dessert section. You’ll be glad you left some room when you see these sweet treats, and there really is something for everyone. In the mood for comfort eating? Enjoy a bowl of the delicious bread and butter pudding, stuffed full of raisins and banana. Want to indulge your inner child? Head over to the ice-cream counter where you can create your own sundae, making the most of the jellies, jars of sweets and chocolate fountain. Piled in amongst this are mini gateaux, traditional Thai desserts such as mango sticky rice and plenty of fresh tropical fruits. Even those who don’t have a sweet tooth will enjoy the fluffy mini madeleines and bitter handmade chocolates, which go perfectly with the fresh coffee or one of the wide selections of teas on offer. Sunday brunch at Intercontinental Hotel Bangkok delivers a dazzling range of gourmet foods – especially for seafood lovers – that would be a culinary highlight of anyone’s diary.
