Tired of the same ol’ Eggs Benedict? Check out these brunch spots instead!
Brunch is one of those wonderful indulgences. Long, lazy weekends spent lingering over breakfast food and designer coffee – what could be more indulgent than that? For days when you want to give yourself a well-deserved treat but don’t want the usual poached eggs, here are 5 spots to check out:
From the folks behind the wildly successful Sugarhall and Jigger & Pony comes Humpback, a Seattle-style seafood restaurant. Every Sunday, for a few precious hours, Humpback serves an impressive brunch menu that features insanely fresh Pacific Northwest oysters alongside a medley of seafood served in inventive ways. Some highlights include Fried Egg, which is a crusted hard-boiled white egg set atop fresh octopus, orzo (the grain-shaped Italian pasta), and Tete de Moine cheese. The runny yolk mixed with the smoky flavours of octopus and the pasta makes this a supremely comforting dish. Another dish we enjoyed is the Lobster Roll, where a soft bread roll is packed thick with sweet, creamy lobster before being topped with tobiko fish roe and a dash of pickle. One great feature of brunch at Humpback is how you can customise your own Bloody Mary cocktails. Choose from a wide variety of base spirits, garnishes, and other ingredients for your own creative concoction.
Humpback is located at 18/20 Bukit Pasoh Road, Tel: 6750 4461. Brunch is available every Sunday from 11am to 3pm.
