Sunday brunch (RMB288/person) at Issimo was not a typical buffet. At first we were a little disappointed but it was quickly apparent that the waitresses were trained to feed us well. There were four starters for the day: tuna and chickpea salad, potato and baby octopus salad, sliced pork with arugula and eggplant. My favourite had to be the eggplant! I don't usually like eggplant but the zingy dressing made all the difference.
Two or three varieties of bruschetta was also served with our starters.
For primo we had homemade ravioli and a bean stew. Both extremely yummi.
Risotto was also on the list.
There were three choices for secondo. My husband went for a pork loin with wine sauce.
I ried out fish grilled in basil and vinaigrette sauce. Both were fairly nice but did not impress like the appetizers.
The dessert spread was spectacular.
Our selection. Everything was excellent!
