I had lunch today at Mezza9 at Grand Hyatt – it was my first time having a meal there, apart from the time I attended Stella’s wedding there. Stella is the mom of my twin godsons. Gee, I feel old now.
Anyhow, I googled ‘Mezza9’ while on the road (I wasn’t the one driving) and got my hopes up at the mention of “Mezza9 at HYATT – The Award-Winning Restaurant & Bar”.
And you know what people say about how the higher your expectations are, the greater the disappointment?
I ordered the lobster set in the picture above. It costs S$54++.
The seaweed soup was close to tasting bland. The chili lobster wasn’t spicy at all and the “chinese white noodles” it was sitting on were laksa(?) noodles and not quite exciting either. The steamed prawn dumplings were good but not extraordinary like what I would expect from an award-winning restaurant. Haha! And as for ice cream? The two tiniest scoops of chocolate ice cream I have ever seen. It was like ice cream in ‘bite size’.
I think the Thai fish cakes and spring roll appetizers, ordered by those who picked the lunch sets, were good.
The wagyu burger was served with a burnt patty so… there is no need for any other comment. 😛
For about 20 dollars more, the dinner buffet at Marriott Hotel would be more enjoyable and better value for money. 😀
Still, the company I had for lunch was great! The rush to get there after zumba class was worth it. 🙂
