Rise and shine for celebrity chef David Thompson’s compelling midday dishes that go way beyond eggs benedict this May
There are weekends where we wake up late, sometimes hung-over, and not exactly in the mood for a fry-up or the same old eggs Benedict. That’s okay – quite a few great restaurants in Singapore offer interesting global plates to feed your ever-changing morning cravings. And one of them is David Thompson’s Thai restaurant Long Chim, which has just begun its weekend brunch service on Saturdays and Sundays from noon to 4pm.
At $60++ per person, you’re entitled to all the amazing Thai dishes you can consume, such as the spicy pork with rice cakes, grilled eggplant salad with steamed egg and dried prawns, green curry of kampong chicken with Thai eggplants, and grilled tilapia in salt crust. Most of these flavour-packed, hangover-busting plates are meant to be shared, so this means you have more tummy room for post-prandial sweets like the pandanus noodles and coconut cake, and black sticky rice.
We’re firm believers that bloodies and mimosas are absolute brunch essentials, and those at Long Chim go one up by infusing Thai flavours – think a sriracha-spiced Thai bloody mary and a refreshing spitzed mandarin mimosa. In case you’re staying away from booze, Long Chim’s appealing Thai iced tea makes a great pairing with your robust midday meal too.
Long Chim’s weekend brunch is available every Saturday and Sunday, 12pm-4pm, at #L2-02 Atrium 2, The Shoppes at Marina Bay Sands, 10 Bayfront Avenue, Singapore 018956, p. 6688 7299. Open daily 1130am-230pm for lunch; 530pm-1130pm for dinner. Bar opens from 1130am-12am daily. Brunch is priced at $60++ per person, and includes one beverage.
