Is there anything better on a weekend afternoon than foie gras, oysters, grilled meats, cake and free-flowing Champagne? (Didn't think so)
Brunch in Singapore is kind of a religion: We live for it. Our weekend Instagram feeds are filled with egg dishes. We plan in advance for the all you can eat scenarios. And sometimes (okay, many times), we do it with free-flow Champagne to give ourselves a little treat (you know what they say, booze makes everything better). Here’s a list of great hotels and restaurants to book for your favourite meal of the day and indulge in an unlimited amount of liquid gold.
Oscar’s: A supercharged Sunday brunch
At Oscar’s Supercharged Sunday Brunch at Conrad Centennial Singapore, you can expect no flighty gimmicks and stuffy ground rules; just a gluttonous feast that’s absolutely perfect for foodies. Sucker for seafood? This Supercharged Sunday Brunch doesn’t skimp on maritime fare with its seafood bar, featuring oysters, sashimi, and exclusive crab creations. Plant yourself at the carving station where you can devour Oscar’s famous roast London duck that’s both crispy and juicy. And it isn’t just about indulging in temptation here; clean eaters can also get their fill at Oscar’s Salad Bar – an astounding four-metre-long platter. Also offering a saccharine finale are delicacies like Oscar’s black forest cake, tofu and green tea pannacotta, and cendol gula melaka coconut espuma. Wanna hear more?.
