Lobster is one of those truly indulgent ingredients, and to centre an entire brunch experience on it simply doubles up on the decadence. Alila Villas Uluwatu’s Lobster Sunday Brunch has been enlivening Sundays on the southern cliffs for the last few months, and to keep diners intrigued, the culinary program features a new, and even more generous, menu.
The brunch takes place at CIRE Restaurant, a chic and understated destination that sits behind the resort’s iconic swimming pool at the cliff’s edge, overlooking the Indian Ocean. A coastal breeze blows through the open-air restaurant, keeping diners cool as the sun shines — as it should on a Sunday!
What’s new about the Lobster Sunday Brunch is that an all-you-can-eat element has been added. Previously a three- or five-course menu, Alila Uluwatu wanted to give diners more flexibility, allowing them to have more of their favourite bites and dishes.
Your culinary journey now starts with an all-you-can-eat Appetiser and Entrée selection, each menu featuring four unique dishes that you can order to your heart’s content.
For the Appetisers, you’ll find: Croquettes, with a side of lemon remoulade; a fresh and zesty Ceviche, with citrus, passion fruit, coconut cream and fresh herbs; an exquisite Lobster Roll, comprised of wasabi mayo, togarashi, salmon roe and charcoal bun; and Rissoles, a fried Indonesian-style spring roll filled with lobster.
Entrées include: Ravioli with a rich lobster bisque; a Bisque Cappuchino, with coconut cream and brandy; a delicate Vol-au-Vent with sautéed greens, brandy and chardonnay sauce; and a Lobster Gulai, a spiced coconut curry with a side of rice cakes.
