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.
Sleek settings perfect for lounging, a lavish gourmet spread (seafood, Thai dishes, sushi, yakitori, grilled delights), as well as free-flowing Perrier-Jouët Grand Brut Champagne ($168++ for Perrier-Jouet Blason Rosé), burgundies and whites, beers, and cocktails for $148++? With a package like this, you know you haven’t had brunch until you’ve had brunch at mezza9.

We’ve all been there – waking up just a little too late to catch that Sunday brunch we’ve been waiting the whole week for. But not to worry, ‘cos we’ve caught wind of the longest brunch in town, and for $160++, you’ll also enjoy unlimited bubbly. This Italian brunch kicks off at 12pm (with the party going on ’til 3pm) and will feature fresh seafood like Fine de Claire oysters and tuna tataki, as well as a live carving station with roast leg of lamb, roast rib eye, and baked salmon fillet. True to its Italian roots, these dishes will be complemented with a choice of homemade pastas straight from the kitchen.
