4 new brunches to try with your gals over the weekend

From an all-you-can-eat brunch to a poolside brunch, here are four lovely ways to spend your weekend
 

Come the weekend, after a long and tiring week, there's nothing more you would want to do than laze around, chill with friends over a meal, and have a drink... or four. Brunch has always been perfect for doing all of those things at the same time.

We've got four new and unique brunch menus for you to check out, ranging from the kind of brunch where you'll be sipping on mimosas and nibbling on eggs benedict, to the kind where you get down and dirty with huge mounds of eggs sitting on beds of smoked meat and fluffy grilled English muffins.

Scroll down for our recommendations of new brunch places you need to eat at.

 

1) Club Street Social

Club Street Social has revamped its brunch menu to feature classic European offerings as opposed to the previous American-style brunch. The menu is conceptualised and executed by Londoner Chef David Philpot, who has worked at The Ivy in London and Soho House in New York.

Nearly everything is made from scratch and the planning of each component in a dish is detailed. Case in point – the ‘Eton Mess’ pancakes, which are made with buttermilk and topped with a combination yuzu curd and blueberries that have just the right balance of sweet and tart. Some of the blueberries are fresh, lending bursts of freshness in some bites, and others are made into a compote, providing treacly sweet flavours. There are also bits of homemade honeycomb toffee strewn across the plate that are extremely crunchy, a lovely contrast to the soft and fluffy pancakes.

Be sure to try the scotch eggs before you go as well. The eggs are more like onsen eggs than poached eggs, with a pleasantly delicate custard-like yolk. The eggs are wrapped in crumbly and aromatic mince that has a crisp outer layer. Or if you want something a little larger, go for the Foie Gras and Mushroom Toast. There's barely any space on the large slab of toast that is stacked with truffled duxelle, porcini, portobello, and a generous wedge of buttery foie gras.

Club Street Social is located at 5 Gemmill Lane.

Brunch is available on the weekends from 11am - 4pm.

 

2) Ginett Restaurant & Wine Bar

Ginett is where you want to go when you're craving brunch and you can't seem to get enough of it. Knock yourself out at the weekend brunch buffet, with brunch mains that are accompanied by starters and desserts, for $42++.

Sure, you'll find your usual eggs benedict as well as poached eggs with merguez there, but also try some of the smoked salmon egg cocotte or roasted pork loins served with mustard sauce that you can get straight off the rotisserie. For desserts, go for the profiteroles choux pastry served with vanilla ice cream or a  delightfully rich crème brûlée custard that is infused with a robust Madagascar vanilla.

To wash it all down, just top up $32++ for access to free flow bloody mary, mimosa and Muscadet. You'll have a boozy good time at Ginett, for sure.

Ginett Restaurant & Wine Bar is located at 200 Middle Rd.

Brunch is available on the weekends from 11am - 4pm.

 

3) Flip Flop

Just like you might expect from its namesake, it's perfectly fine to show up for brunch here donned in a pair of flip-flops. As Flip Flop is located by the poolside at One Farrer Hotel & Spa, you could lounge by the water with a mimosa that's been prepped with cubes of frozen apple or orange juice. Interesting way to serve a mimosa but we aren't complaining as that means there's more champagne!

As for food, you'll find all your quintessential brunch toasts topped with smashed avocado, truffled scrambled eggs, foie gras, and poached eggs. We loved the Jamon & Trio Cheese Baked Egg Hash which was decked with tender potatoes and savoury strips of jamon. End your meal with the Pandan & Coconut French Toast Sticks, that are hot, fluffy and moist. The french toast sticks come with a bowl of gula melaka to dip in, filling you with a saccharine goodness.

Flip Flop is located at One Farrer Hotel & Spa, 1 Farrer Park Station Road, Level 6 Poolside.

Brunch is available on Sundays from 11.30am - 3pm.

 

4) Decker Barbecue

Better known for its smoked meats and hearty, homely food, Decker Barbecue was not the kind of place we thought would serve brunch, but we're so glad they do because it's perfect for those days you just want indulge in a heavy meal. Expect the usual brunch fare but with an added oomph.

The smashed avocado toast here uses beer bread, and the standard eggs benedict can be pumped up with your choice of meat – from sinful fried chicken to juicy and smoky chunks of chopped brisket. And the french toast? It comes with thick and juicy slabs of steak cut bacon that are topped with streams of maple syrup.

Grab a girlfriend who can really eat, because you won't want to be wasting any of this hearty food.

Decker Barbecue is located at 60 Robertson Quay #01-17.

Brunch is available on weekends from 11.30am - 4pm.
