Azur at Crowne Plaza Changi Airport

Brunch lovers dwelling in the east can look forward to the weekend brunch at Azur. The restaurant at Crowne Plaza Hotel Changi Airport offers a weekend brunch menu of delectable local dishes and international fares.

The interior sports a modern look with cool metallic hues splashed across the walls, paired with cosy seats of earthy tones. The spacious interior architecture showcases functional space planning and partitioning; the tables are sufficiently spaced apart for a comfortable dining experience.

Salads

Salad

To start off with something light, a pre-tossed salad of juicy tomatoes and fresh greens is available. Or mix and match to create your very own customised salad with a selection of dressings available.

Smoked salmon salad

The smoked salmon salad looks pretty enticing!

Local delights

The menu boasts a plethora of local hawker favourites; visitors to Singapore can get a good taste of local cuisine as soon as they land on our sunny island. In particular, the tender chicken from the Hainanese chicken rice station is a must-try!

Hop over to the noodle bar and savour a bowl of piping hot Singapore laksa.

Laksa

Spicy Laksa

Prepared upon order, the laksa brims with cockles, prawns, fish cakes and quail eggs in a rich coconut broth. You can up the spice factor by adding your desired amount of sambal chilli. The laksa gravy is a little watered down for my liking, though it doesn’t lack fragrance or aroma.

Popiah

Popiah

For something healthier, go for the popiah. Freshly prepared at the live station, you will find crunchy textures amidst the fresh ingredients, wrapped in a delicate skin. Feel free to ask for more chilli for a fiery kick.

You-tiao
DIY rojak station

Toss up your own rojak at the DIY station. Doesn’t it taste better when you do it yourself?

The deep fried Hokkien ngoh hiang contains minced pork, sweet prawns and chestnuts for an extra crunch.

The braised kong bak pork belly is pure decadence in the mouth. The pork is well-executed; the meat is tender, and the sauce so delicious.

Look out for the innovative pairing of ham and Ribena.

East Meets West

Savoury cheese crepe

Peking duck

Hop over to the live station and catch the chefs wrapping Peking duck filled with cream cheese, chives and cucumber in crepe and grilling it to perfection.

This highly raved dish is a definite must-have!

Baked cheesy rice, paella style with an Asian twist

Baked cheesy rice, paella style with an Asian twist

This baked cheesy rice doesn’t come close to the authentic paella, but it is a good attempt with the Asian twist. The cheesy element definitely screams comfort food! Don’t expect a caramelised rice crust though.

Foie gras mousse with fruit compote

Foie gras mousse with fruit compote

The pairing of foie gras mousse with fruit compote is slightly disappointing. The slight sweetness and acidity of the fruit compote has overwhelmed the already-subtle taste of the foie gras.

International delights

Garlic naan

Garlic naan

The garlic naan is prepared from scratch by an experienced Indian chef, and baked in a tandoori oven.

Vegetable korma

Tip: Pair the naan with the vegetable korma; it is beyond delicious!

Chicken malai kebab

Chicken malai kebab

The chicken malai kebab is well-executed; I highly recommend it. Marinated with yoghurt, the chicken is melt-in-the-mouth tender, regardless of which part of the chicken you go for.

Flake of white snow with kaffir lime fondue

The flake of white snow is slightly dry and overdone, but the kaffir lime sauce is absolutely divine.

Chicken chunks

Chicken chunks

You can’t go wrong with the chicken dishes at Azur. All of them turn out tender and moist.

Soups

Szechuan hot & sour soup

Szechuan hot & sour soup

The Szechuan hot & sour soup is thick, tasty and comforting. The only gripe is the amount of cornstarch used to thicken the soup.

Clam chowder

Clam chowder

Ironically, the clam chowder isn’t thick and creamy enough, and it is a tad salty. I can’t help but get the impression of the chef trying to salvage an overly salted soup by adding more water.

The vibrant colours of the dessert station are bound to kindle your appetite. You don’t have to save that much room for desserts as they come in tiny portions ?but you can, if you intend to get seconds!
