The Panamercian Lawn brunch brings to life the rich diversity of cultures, cuisines and music found in the 14 countries that pass through the world-famous Pan-American Highway, which stretches through the North, Central and South Americas.
Located at Sentosa Golf Club, the lawn faces out towards the famous Singapore Straits with sunset views to die for. With the golf course on one side and the ocean on the other, there are views from every angle. It doesn’t even feel like you are in the hustle and bustle city of Singapore.
As you book, you have three options in seating: The Lawn, Bar with a View and the Communal Table and Lounge. We took the Lawn as it is well covered and has a perfect breeze. It is also closest to the cliff for those better views.
Drinks at Panamerica
With a set menu, you’re certainly in for a feast at Panamaerica with cuisines from North, Central and South America for you to taste. But before the food comes, you must get yourself some drinks. The Pisco Disco ($25++), made with Barsol Pisco, violet liqueur, guava and lemon; and Champagne & Absinthe Colada ($25++) – a jazzed up pina colada featuring Mount Gay Rum, Gosling’s Dark Rum, coconut cream, pineapple, Absinthe and Panamericana Prosecco are two that we enjoyed trying.
For those dining out in larger groups, they also offer sharing serves of selected cocktails in Porrons (for up to four persons) and Explosions (for up to six persons) – perfect for a night out with friends or family. We enjoyed the Sangria bottles that were expertly made and poured.
Food at Panamerica
As a starter, we have the sharing platters of Peruvian Ceviche (SG$28++), comprising Japanese Amberjack, papaya, red onion and coriander served with an umami chilli coconut milk dressing. After finishing them in no time, we asked for the mains to come over.
We had the seafood dishes Charred Octopus Tentacles (SG$46++) and the Wild Caught Green Tiger Prawns (SG$46++). The former, featuring perfectly grilled tentacles served with parsnip puree, tamarillo and negra mayo, is delightfully briny, charred and smokey, while the latter, comprising king prawns served on a bed of Brazilian Vatapa. The biggest issue with this was that there is fierce competition for the last pieces of Octopus.
The Lamb Al Asador ($65++) is cooked absolutely to perfection. It is about 300g and is a South American Inspired dish. They prepare it with a 7-Hour Wood-fired with Chilli, Thyme, Rosemary & Garlic which compliment so well.
The Pluma Iberico Pork ($48++) is also out and is a must-try, especially with the Caramelised Pineapple Salsa, Radicchio & Apple Slaw. In fact, the apple slaw really set off the meal. The meat dishes are capped off by the Lake Saroma Striploin 300g. It is cooked medium as per chefs’ recommendations and the salt really draws out the juices and flavours.
We totally forgot about dessert and had to decline it. However, the staff simply would take no for an answer. And we are so happy they encouraged us! These Churros remind us of being back in Peru again!
For your Panamericana experience, we recommend that if you have a larger group, reserve the Lawn as it is much spacier. If you like a natural breeze, The Lawn also is great. Make sure you do not leave without having a drink at the bar, they can make an incredible Negroni.
