IT'S LYNNY KANSAS
DON'T LET THE RUBY SLIPPERS,

FOOL YOU., THERE'S NO PLACE LIKE HOME,
BUT TRAVELING IS FUN.
There are many options here in Singapore for "Sunday Brunch", it almost seems like a championship sport. Most of the major Hotels will do a brunch and many restaurants are also now muscling in on the act, giving many to choose from, with a variance of price points. For some time I had been hearing of the brunch offered at Senso Ristorante, an Italian place on Club Street, finally this past Sunday, my husband and I got to try.
As we walked into the restaurant, we were immediately impressed with the decor and ambiance. There is a small outside courtyard and behind that is the main restaurant. The crisp table linens and lovely warm wall color was very inviting.
The concept is also a little different. There is a small buffet area where you can enjoy unlimited antipasti. Oysters, huge shrimp, along with different cold cuts of meat, cheeses, smoked salmon and various kinds of cold pasta salads, breads, croissants, fruit and all the usual condiments and dressings are available to you free flow. In addition, on the table, is a menu of dishes that can be ordered as and when you wish. The portion sizes were small, but these too were free flow, able to be ordered more than once if you wished and you could work your way through the entire menu to try all the dishes. I quite liked this idea, it greatly reduced the people crowding a buffet table and it was nice to be able to sit and talk properly with my hubby and be "served". This leads me to the service. The wait staff were all impeccably dressed, very attentive and well trained. The free flow Prosecco and lovely Italian wine was administered liberally and in a most pleasant manner adding even more to the overall experience.
To top it all off - if you can find room - is an amazing array of desserts. My particular favorites were the Lemon Meringue Tarts, Creme Brulee and the Chocolate Profiteroles. Also of note was a fabulous Panacotta with a raspberry sauce and of course Tiramisu which was divine. Tea and coffee are also included.
And just to prove that the restaurant has a playful side, their Venus like statue, gracing the courtyard, was dressed for the "Carnivale" - well maybe except for ahem, the rear!! I did have a little chuckle as I exited the restaurant.
We thoroughly enjoyed our relaxing and elegant Sunday Brunch, it was so refreshing to find such a lovely spot with such good food and service. Definitely on our "return" list.

Note to self: do NOT read any more LynnyKansas blog posts unless you have a very full belly. Even in that condition, you are still rather likely to suffer from excessive drooling of the mouth and pangs of hunger (not to mention envy) when you read her cruelly detailed and inspired descriptions (and pictures!) of the marvelous food that she is enjoying at the moment. I can only hope that the lucky restaurateurs whose creations she showcases so lovingly are decent enough to recognize her gifts as we, her readers, do...

Was just thinking about you and wondering when I'd get another blog. This restaurant looks wonderful and has such a variety of food choices . When will you be back in the states?
