St. Regis Brunch: Home Edition (Brunch Delivery) Review!

👍 Great variety of delicious food, prompt delivery, portions are huge.
👎 Sushi rolls were a bit crappy.

Even though our Circuit Breaker period will officially end just a little over a week from now, it appears that work from home - and therefore eat at home - arrangements are going to continue at least throughout June. Most of you will probably already have your day-to-day meal routine sorted, but what if you're celebrating a special occasion and/or would just like to splurge a little to reward yourself?

Well, why not try out the St. Regis Brunch: Home Edition: A weekend-only brunch delivered right to your doorstep? The darling and I did exactly that this weekend, ordering their Duo Set for 2 Adults for a long weekend celebration.

Delivery was prompt, and while presentation/plating wasn't quite up to fine dining levels we thought it was really more than good enough for a home celebration. The amount of food included in the St. Regis Brunch is a little ridiculous: We kept almost all of the cold dishes in the fridge and ate them for dinner. You'd need to have two teenagers, athletes, or competitive eaters to finish everything off in one seating.

Most of the dishes were well cooked and delicious, except for the Sushi Rolls which were 'meh' at best. If you've got an oven at home, we found that holding the hot dishes at 55°C allowed us to eat leisurely while still having good temperature food.

You can check out complete details of the St. Regis Brunch and order online on their Oddle website. We paid $156 nett for the set for 2 adults, and thought it was amazing value given that it fed us for literally one entire day.

Hope this express review helps you, and do stay well fed for the rest of these strange covid times!
