MoZen Brunch - Anyone been?
- uhockey Oct 7, 2010 04:25 PM
Heading back to Vegas for more culinary fun this December - was planning out meals and have heard good things about MoZen's brunch but the online menu is scarce on details. Is it served all morning or does it start later in the morning (10? 11?)
Regarding the food - how is the quality?
Regarding the flow - I understand it is partially passed appetizers and buffet plus a composed plate, is it busy?
Thanks in advance for answers.
Sorry, Uhockey, I've never been.
But since when do you need recommendations from others? You are one of the most adventurous diners out there. We look to you for reviews on the places most of us never think or get a chance to go to. I'll be in Vegas in December as well, and was looking at MOzen for brunch/lunch. The menu looks fantastic, but there are so many other places I haven't been to yet that this one has to get pushed back on the list.
Good luck on wherever you decide.
Haha - well thank you.
My question was regarding the difference between breakfast and brunch - the restaurant explained it quite nicely via E-mail and I'm definitely considering it, though I don't like "buffet" all that much as I like plating, service, etc as part of the "experience." I also tend to (no surprise) overeat at buffets and already have plenty of meals lined up for the trip. If I don't go to brunch, I will do it for breakfast one day during the trip. Glad you enjoy the posts/blog - but I always ask the locals for advice. :-)
I went to Brunch at MOzen in July and reviewed it then (see comments under City Center). Summary:
* wonderful surprise. Appetizers are passed or buffet from a number of small stations around the modestly sized restaurant. I hung out at the sushi/oyster station for delicious appetizers. Separate salad and cheese table was more standard but excellent flavors nonetheless.
* main course is from a list of 6-8 things in the Singapore way. Dishes cover Chinese, Indian, Thai and other ethnic flavors of a Singapore hawker restaurant. You tell them when you want the entree and they withhold your order until you specify. ... generally, delivery is 10 minutes after you order. I asked for recommendations and got one for the spicy minced Thai chicken with basil and rice. Wow! No dumbing down the spices for the home crowd. It was wickedly spicy and delicious.
* desserts were also interesting small items in a buffet format.
* best surprise, brunch came with unlimited glasses of Veuve Cliquot Champagne. I tested the unlimited a bit as I watched the World Cup final game during the brunch via a special set up in MOzen. I stopped at 4 glasses. Viva Espana!
Without question, I will gladly go again to this brunch next time I visit Vegas. note: (the spa at the Mandarin is also the best I've seen in Vegas. But, that's for a different board).
