Prego’s Bubbalicious Brunch is anything but refined and conservative. It is, instead, an extravaganza of jollification and diversion. The crew kick off with a group cheer, Bubbalicious flags are raised and the unmistakable sound of champagne bottles popping charges the air. The harlequin dining area is lined with molecular desserts, shots, test tubes and a scrumptious line up of fresh seafood, salads and cheeses. Polychromatic lanterns hang from the ceiling and chefs almost dance through the open kitchen as flames blaze and steam simmers from pots. Mentalists, magicians and living statue performers amuse the adults while children are tucked away in an adventure playground of their own filled with bubble girls, make your own milkshake stations, games and a child size buffet. Metal serving trays are fumbled clanging to the floor and the staff erupt in a round of applause and ‘woot woots’. Guests are greeted with cocktails and the show is only just beginning.
Italian themed cuisine is the foundation of this culinary escapade with bubbles, alcohol and molecular experiments suffusing the offerings. Fresh figs, bean salads, antipasto, imported cheeses and hand-shucked oysters accentuate the starter sideboard. A science centre, adorned with test tubes, bunsen burners and the mysterious fog from liquid nitrogen is where your instant ice cream is assembled. It is here too, that you can turn your glass of champagne into an icy cold slushy. The desserts smorgasbord is effervescent with bubble infused inventions. Take a jello shot from the wall of spoons or try a Classic Cocktail Dessert Shot – a twist on traditional potations where sweets are topped with shaved frozen liquor and sided with a complementary booster. Much merriment can be found wandering around but a more idle approach can be favoured too. Chefs promenade the tables with pastas, pizzas, risottos, soups and items hot off the grill. This not only means you don’t have to leave your seat, but it sidesteps the common downfall of many buffets of the messy group scoop and parched hot dishes.
Staff seem to have just as much fun as guests. Camaraderie is evident as mishaps are celebrated with a boisterous hoopla and even the bosses partake in the party games. Glasses are topped without delay, cocktails are shaken in team unison and the gang are only too keen to noisily encourage you in a drinking challenge. Birthday celebrants beware! Giant sized champagne glasses and lay backs await you.
