Easter Sunday's Smoothie Brunch Buffet at Prego

Egg Benedict - A poached egg sitting atop a piece of toast and ham in between and covered in Hollandaise sauce. Gently break the surface of the egg york and the molten viscous egg york oozes out. This is what I called a perfectly executed egg!
Seafood Salad and Cold Cuts

Closeup of a slice of Fig. The deep dark red colour fooled me into thinking it would be sweet but ended up it tasted bitter.
Meat Balls Spaghetti and Lasagne - The second of the food cart after the salad's. Initially turned down the offer to try these but my dining companion brought a plate for me.

Dessert Station - Leave some space in the tummy for the desserts because a whole range of sweet and savory cakes, pies, cookies and more await those with the sweet tooth. Since this was Easter Sunday, the theme of the desserts centered around chocolate, so tuck in and satisfy your craving.
Aren't this Strawberry Blueberry Cake so beautifully crafted? Those candies on top were kind of hard for my teeth though.
This Vanilla Cheese Cake suit my palate better. Glazed citrus fruits and berries sit on top of the rich creamy and smooth cheese cake.

Panna Cotta is an Italian dessert made by simmering together cream, milk and sugar, mixing this with gelatin, and letting it cool until set. Usually served with wild berries, caramel, chocolate sauce or fruit coulis.
Another look at the Dessert Station.

Almond Financier - When I first look at the display tag, I asked myself what a financier got to do with a cake! Took a bite and decided it's not my kind of cake as it's too sweet.
Financiers are often served topped with whipped cream, berries, or other fruit, and served accompanied by ice cream or other frozen confections. Financier pans are traditionally rectangular; however, other shapes are not uncommon.
Chocolate Amaretto Flan - Can remembered if I tried this chocolate bird nest or not.

Chicks in Chocolate Egg - I am not sure if this was a decoration or it can be eaten (the chocolate egg not the chicks).
Chocolate Egg Flan - We were trying to figure out what the egg york was made of and we were none the wiser at the end of the day. All I can tell you was it had a chocolate shell and lemon/lime fragrant for the cream/mousse.

Hot Cross Bun is a sweet, spiced bun made with currants or raisins and marked with a cross on the top, traditionally eaten on Good Friday.
Tiramisu - The rabbits are having a field day here. :D/>

Chocolate Pot De Creme Meringue in shooter glass with a crystal ball below as stand.
Deep Frying the Apple Fritter - The taste of this resembled donuts. You can't actually tasted the bits of apple flesh inside the dough which was far too sweet coated in sugar.

Chocolate and Pistachio Gelato - Should have asked for separate cups for the gelato as the chocolate one overpowered the light nutty fragrant of the pistachio version.
Cappuccino - I half expected them to put some designs on the milk foam but it did not materialised.
Strawberry and Strawberry & Banana Smoothies - No idea why they bother to call this a Smoothie Brunch when all they served are these two smoothies. Hey, they have lots of honeydew melons at the parma ham station too but its not put to good use.

Mini Buffet Corner for Kids - And they even have their own mini buffet corner.
Balloon Sculpting - A queue was forming while waiting for this boi boi to finish his creation.
A balloon bicycle for the lucky kid. Nope, not that kid, he has to learn to queue for it.
Damages - Thanks to the FAR card, our damages was greatly reduced. :D/>
The service staffs were wearing smiles and attentive to the diners' needs. Empty plates were promptly cleared, napkin folded and water topped up. Foods were fresh and constantly replenished. But if you were to ask me if it's value for money, I would probably not go back again if not for the 50% discount. Now to try their breakfast buffet. :D/>
