For a blowout brunch, fancy schmancy hotel buffets can’t be beat. This new one at Parkroyal at Pickering’s on-site restaurant is lovely. In an airy light filled dining room, swig Piper-Heidsieck Champagne while digging into moreish mushroom risotto (made a la minute), fiery Thai salads and house made gravlax. The servers come round with hot pizza too, offering up hot cheesy slices at 30 minute intervals. There is also lots of lovely cheese—don’t miss the stinky livarot—and fresh pastries (the tender nutella-filled chocolate muffin is a real winner). It’s all surprisingly affordable: $68++ or $98++ (with free-flow Champagne and wine).
Brunch available noon-3pm.
Sabio Tapas Bar & Restaurant
An awesome deal at $49.90++ for an a la carte buffet of cold—try the creamy St Helens oysters or fresh cucumber-y gazpacho—and hot tapas (like their killer spicy pan-fried calamari or briny noodle paella with squid ink), this meal’s been christened the “Hangover Brunch”. There’s no better cure than hair of the dog and this feast comes with free-flow cava as well as red and white sangria.
Brunch available Sun 11:30am-3:30pm.
Tanjong Pagar is pretty quiet over the weekend, so the brunch vibe at this charming Parisian-style bistro is real laidback. Chef-owners Bertrand Raguin and Philippe Nouzillat put out a menu of French crepes—with fillings like ham, egg and cheese ($11)—plus, eggy classics such as oeuf cocotte ($12).
Brunch available Sun 10:30am-4:30pm.
The freshly minted Argentinean establishment has just launched a new brunch featuring recipes like braised ossobuco on toast ($24), and chorizo grilled tomato omelet ($23).
