Your usual Sunday feast gets an egg-citing reboot this Easter weekend.
When the long holiday weekend beckons, chances are, you’ll be trading your morning kopi-and-kaya toast routine for something a little more indulgent. Here’s where it gets (ahem) egg-citing: we’ve got the scoop on Marina Bay Sands’ souped-up Easter specials. From fresh seafood to hearty roasts, check out our roundup for some irresistible breakfast inspo.
Treat the fam bam to a real Sunday roast
Gordon Ramsay’s Bread Street Kitchen never fails to deliver the iconic British staple. We are talking about the good ‘ol Sunday roast, a signature that’s loaded with Yorkshire pudding, roasted potatoes, spiced honey carrots and greens, and drizzled with gravy. Other brunch items are available, of course. There are stacked buttermilk pancakes, scotch eggs and an artery-clogging (but totally scrumptious) breakfast platter. Oh, and you can keep the kids occupied with decorating Easter eggs and cookies. We say that’s a win-win.
Oysters and Champagne for brunch? Don’t mind if we do
This Japanese-inspired brunch at Adrift by David Myers (1 April, 12-3pm) is every seafood lovers’ dream. At $88++ per person, you’ll be kicking off your meal with fancy plates – think king crab omelette with Japanese curry, and barley miso chicken with burnt citrus. Throw in an additional $70 for free-flow Champagne or rosé, and you’re set.
Go ahead, eat all you can at this Easter buffet
For the best of everything, make your way to Rise (1 April, 12.30-3pm) – this buffet destination offers one of the most impressive spreads in town. They’ve got a great cheese and cold cuts selection, fresh lobsters and sashimi, and the ever-tempting beef Wellington and slow-cooked Iberico pork shoulder. If you can’t do without your eggs, the live station whips up a mean egg cocotte with truffle jus and brioche.
There’s more: you can also order a piping hot pasta dish (complete with mix-and-match choices of sauces, ingredients and pasts) or load up on barbecued meats. In the mood for Easter sweets? Fill your plates with chocolate eggs and freshly-baked hot cross buns. It’s about $128++ per adult, but for $168++, you’ll have dibs on Piper Heidsieck Champagne, and a selection of wines and craft beers. If you’re bringing the kids, it’s $48++ per child.
There’s always room for fried chicken
If you can’t get enough of crispy fried chicken, you’ll want in on this finger lickin’ “All You Can Eat Fried Chicken” deal at The Bird Southern Table & Bar (1 April, 11am-4pm). Here’s your chance to see if the restaurant’s 100 year-old recipe is worth the hype… by stuffing yourselves with unlimited servings of Lewellryn’s Fine Fried Chicken at $28++ per person.
Can’t make it for brunch? You can still have dinner…
Okay, so we know it’s the weekend and nothing (not even brunch) comes between you and your rest. For those who would only deign to step out after six, db Bistro & Oyster Bar is dishing out a seasonal three-course menu, available from $98++ per adult. Highlights include the seared diver scallops, smoked bacon and quail eggs, herb-crusted rack of lamb and the dark chocolate and Guinness tart, topped with Bailey’s ice cream.
Bring home these sweet Easter treats
More than just a breezy coffee joint, SweetSpot is also where you can pick up an ambrosial selection of cakes, chocolates and hot cross buns. Craving for a creamy slice of carrot cake? They’ve got it. Want a rich chocolate fudge cake for dessert? Say no more. You can order these Easter specials from now ‘til 1 April – see their menu yourselves.
