Museum Cafe is one of those restaurants I’ve seen but have never set foot in until last Sunday when we were there to try their Sunday Boutique Brunch spread. The brunch buffet is a departure from the usual stuff served in other places with only one main course but unlimited servings of appetizers and dessert. I love this kind of concept because I usually have less room in my tummy after feasting on the appetizers and who can forgo dessert.
There’s 2 sides to Museum Cafe, M Cafe and Kabila. Each side exudes a different vibe, Kabila faces Makati Ave. and has an abundance of light while M Cafe faces the Greenbelt gardens for a healthy dose of green.
A jazz band provides entertainment while you enjoy your relaxing Sunday meal.
This is the raw bar, charcuterie, cheese, salad and bread station of the buffet. There isn’t a dazzling amount of choices but the ones available are very good quality.
My hands down favorite from the raw bar is the freshly shucked Aklan oysters. Just drizzle a little mignonette and spritz some lemon and just enjoy the briny flavors. I lost count after 10 pcs of these silky smooth oysters.
I paired the Jamon Serrano with these three cream cheese with the black pepper one matching the jamon the best. The choirzo Iberico and Norwegian smoked salmon also made their way into my appetizer plate. There’s also a wonderful Coconut cheese that you must try.
Another beautiful and yum appetizer was the Herb crusted tuna.
Brunch calls for eggs and the chef behind this station can whip you up some. He can also make you a kick ass omelette with the works or you can make your own.
My choice for main course was the M Benedict. This was supposed to have Jamon excellente but they ran out that day so they swapped it with the healthier smoked salmon. Perfectly poached egg with creamy hollandaise sauce and a welcome bed of arugula. I skipped the bread bottom and wolfed everything else down.
Irene went for a bowl of Congee, perfect for the rainy weather that day. Irene had hers served with siomai, you can also opt for the shark’s fin dumpling instead. I had a little taste of the congee and it’s quite good, the siomai were ordinary though.
We were not surprised Lauren went for the Fish and Chips. One of her staple dishes wherever she goes. Wiped out except for the veggies so I’m assuming it met her standards.
Here are some of the other mains you can choose from.
I was almost full to bursting when I reached the dessert spread so I just got a little slice of the lemon meringue cake. I would have wanted to try the enticing Green Tea Panna cotta but there was no more place to put it in my tummy.
The Museum Cafe Sunday Brunch spread is a great deal at P1,085 nett. You can stuff yourself silly on the appetizer and the dessert and they even allow your to wrap up your main course and take it home. I wish more places would offer a similar buffet style, it fits my smallish appetite perfectly.
