From brunch staples like smoked salmon and scrambled eggs, to exotic treats like Dulce de leche pancakes and sea black pudding – boCHINche raises the bar yet again
These days, brunch spots are almost a dime a dozen, popping out from the food scene with assertions of having the most appetising eggs ben or home-made waffles. That said, if we had to save our tummy space (and praises) for our brunch of the month on the cusp of this new year, we’d pick a candidate that’s shone with its culinary standards time and time again. Beefing up its Argentinian menu with a revitalised weekend brunch menu, boCHINche is upping the ante and we couldn’t be happier.
While this Amoy Street establishment already trumps with its grilled steaks, alongside tantalising small plates like sea bass ceviche, Hokkaido scallops tiradito and caramelised pork belly, we’d gladly scrape ourselves outta bed over the weekend to munch on these bad boys. Revamping the brunch menu are platters like the organic poached eggs, mushrooms and potato ragout, Iberico shoulder 30 months ($26), and the Faina and fried eggs with crushed avocado, coriander and aji molido cream fraiche ($22).
Other drool-worthy specialties include boCHINche’s Dulce de leche – a thick, caramel-like syrup that is trickled over fluffy pancakes, and topped with caramelised banana, chopped basil and baked ricotta cheese ($19). Or if you’d like a more adventurous pairing with brunch staples like smoked salmon, scrambled eggs and grilled peppers salad, have a go at the signature sea black pudding – a variation of blood sausage fusing the freshness of seasonal seafood, the tanginess of lemon juice, and the spiciness of aji molido ($26). Can you say flavour explosion?
Patrons who are already fans of boCHINche’s original brunch selections need not fret; favourites like the organic poached eggs on toast with braised osso buco and chive hollandaise, and brioche French toast with home-cooked ham and bacon ice cream still remain. But ask yourself: why wouldn’t you wanna try boCHINche’s new items like waffles, mango compote, chocolate crumble and coconut ice cream ($19)? Then again, why wouldn’t you wanna try everything? Grab a gang, and get feasting!
boCHINche’s new weekend brunch is available on Saturday and Sunday, from 11am to 4.30pm.
