Savour the Sabor Sunday Brunch

This review is for the Sunday Brunch. The term ballin’ on a budget comes to mind. For $49/person you can gorge on ALL YOU CAN EAT hand carved ham, prime rib, brisket, smoked sausage, shrimp cocktail, smoked salmon, pozole, omelettes, freshly made pancakes and the most amazing maple syrup glazed brussel sprouts I’ve ever had in my life. I don’t normally like brussel sprouts, they’re usually cooked badly and burnt with a bitter aftertaste, but not these sprouts, they are perfect.

I can wax poetic about these brussel sprouts, in fact I will: smoky, perfectly cooked moist interior with charred edges, with a sweet and savory maple syrup glaze interspersed with caramelized onions and a grated hard cheese, it was perfection. My only regret is trying it after all the meats and soup because I was really full and I literally bypassed the dessert table to grab 4th portions. I have a feeling that I’ll be dreaming about these brussel sprouts for some time.

This buffet is smaller but carried the greatest hits of buffets, with an emphasis on quality and presentation. It might be one of the most beautiful buffets I’ve been to, and I just came back from Vegas! Everything was so well thought out, they staggered the staging so that each area (appetizers, main, carving station, sides, bread/desserts) was easily accessible and not crowded.

The bread area was especially eye pleasing with the rustic touches on presentation. I didn’t want to fill up on bread so it was hard to ignore the beautifully arranged jams. The appetizer area also shone with the delicious Italian style salad with mozzarella, arugula, and tri-colored heirloom tomato slices drizzled with balsamic vinegar, which I didn’t resist and it was a great side to the meats. I also got a small portion of the smoked salmon with capers and cream cheese and didn’t even bother with the bagel.

The crab salad and shrimp cocktail came prepackaged in small mason jars and it was genius because I never liked having crustaceans just in the open as they tend to be dry. This way, it’s not only beautiful, but practical, and I appreciate it so much. The tiny Tabasco sauce that comes with it is also adorable. They even have the wings platter separated by flats and drums! This attention to detail is why this buffet stands out.

The only thing that it lacked was more fresh fruit. I really enjoy fruit especially when it’s precut as I’m the one who does it at home for my kiddos and it’s a small indulgence I have. From what I was told they usually have it but not that day. I also personally would prefer more salt in the food, but it was easily corrected with the salt shaker on my table. The coffee came in a pot and made it easy to refill myself. I liked it, but some might not.

The other reason for the recommendation is the staff. I came during Halloween weekend and it was decorated slightly but the staff dressed up and some were really creative! I enjoyed guessing who they were dressed up as and they were kind enough to let us know if our guesses were correct or not. We didn’t get the Telenovela star since we didn’t watch those programming. I did get Marlon Wayans from Don’t Be a Menace to South Central While Drinking Your Juice in the Hood.

The staff was so nice and accommodating, they really looked like they were enjoying themselves, from the chef in the back singing along to the country tunes from the live singer playing, the nice waitress taking time to explain how to dress up my pozole, to the staff hurrying over to give me a small Tabasco bottle for my shrimp cocktail since I missed it.

I highly recommend this place if you want great service and amazing food, and ambiance. Everyone should try it at least once and if you have out of town guests, it’s a great easy option to satisfy everyone with a little bit of everything. At $49/person it’s worth it, just a note though that on Sunday and with parties of 6+ it’s automatic gratuity of 20%. Service is more than worth that. You can do a la carte but the buffet is where it’s at. It’s only on Sundays from 10am-2pm and for an extra $10 you can have unlimited mimosas. If you want just breakfast the weekdays are $25/person but without the lunch items. Buen Provenco!
