Don Quijote (Sunday brunch buffet)

C says:

We decided to try Don Quijote’s a la carte Sunday brunch buffet - $33 for unlimited orders from a selection of 20 tapas; $48 with free-flow sangria. I decided to treat myself with the sangria option, but A had the standard.

The selection for the buffet is definitely much more limited than the a la carte menu. It may be good value for money, but I can safely say that with the exception of the chicken wings, I wouldn’t order any of the dishes on the buffet menu on a regular visit. The 2 best dishes from our last visit – the long beans with Serrano ham and the squid ink pasta – both didn’t feature in the brunch menu.

Anyway, I can’t deny that it’s a pretty good deal nonetheless. Some of the better options include the garlic mushrooms, the prawns wrapped with eggplant and the asparagus wrapped with bacon. I only managed 2 glasses of sangria, one red and one white, and while they were slightly watered down, that’s actually how I like my sangria – like a glorified fruit punch, heh.

Rather than stuffing ourselves for less than spectacular dishes, knowing full well what the restaurant is capable of, next time we’ll just come back for the regular a la carte, and just order more selectively. Then at least we won’t be too full for some Udders ice cream from next door.

Good value for money. I’d recommend it if you’re hungry and don’t want the usual boring buffet spread. The place was fully booked when we went so it might be best if you call the night before to get a seat.
