5 Of The Best Champagne Brunches In Singapore
Bar & Billiard Room
Think of Bar & Billiard Room as a hidden gem. Situated within the Raffles Hotel enclave, it may take you a few twists and turns before you find this mecca. But it will all be worth it for what awaits you is an impressive spread of gourmet antipasti, hors d’oeuvres and mains that give you a taste of European cuisine.
With a plethora of dishes, come up with a battle plan to try everything on the menu. Begin with the cold cuts and cheese section, try a bit of everything before going for the seafood. Here, you can find its signature highlights such as the ‘live’ chilled Maine lobsters on ice, freshly shucked oysters and other treasures of the sea. Don’t overindulge though, for there’s also a good selection of meats, main courses and desserts at their designated stations – and they’re all yours for the taking.
To enhance your dining experience, the Sunday brunch comes with free flow drinks. The champagnes available are the Billecart-Salmon Brut Reserve and the Billecart-Salmon Brut Rose. There’s also a good variety of red and white wines, plus other alcoholic beverages if champagne is not your drink of choice.
There’s a reason why Edge’s Champagne Brunch, which is from 12pm to 4pm, has one of the longest hours in Singapore. Simply put, the offerings are just so extensive that you need more time to go through all the seven live kitchens, select the dishes you want to try and enjoy it with unlimited Veuve Clicquot Champagne.
If you want to go straight to the signatures, make the live grill as your first stop and dig in to the master butcher’s wide array of grilled sausages. As if this couldn’t get any better, the restaurant has introduced new dishes such as the Chicken Curry Sausage and the classic German Bratwurst. Indulge in these specialties while you enjoy the weekend with unlimited glasses of Champagne, cocktails and non-alcoholic beverages.
Spend your Sunday feasting on Mezza9’s international spread of traditional Chinese, Thai, Japanese and Western cuisine. These dishes are split into nine different stations, and these are placed closer to the tables to tempt your taste buds even more.
Take your time and go through all the sections. Make sure you make a pit stop at the Japanese station, where the chef’s handmade sushi, California rolls, sashimi tempura are all laid out and waiting for you to sample. Wood fired and chargrilled meats are always a favourite here, and so are the all-time favourite desserts of strawberry cheesecake and milk chocolate tart. An even better way to enjoy all these is with a glass of Perrier Jouët Grand Brut, available during Sunday brunches.
With 13 theatre kitchens, be spoilt for choice with the amount of offerings The Line has. Each of these is brimming with choices, like the seafood section, where you can find treasures of the sea – freshly shucked oysters, various types of crabs and fresh and succulent Boston lobsters.
The butcher’s section also has a good selection of meat to satisfy the carnivore in you. Manned by a chef, he will skillfully slice you a piece or two of premium pork or beef like the prized premium ribs and Iberico ham. End the meal on a sweet note with over 30 varieties of desserts to fill up the limited space in your tummy.
During Sundays, The Line’s brunch is made even more luxurious with unlimited glasses of Taittinger Champagne, beers and non-alcoholic beverages. Now, that’s how you toast to a great weekend.
MELT the World Cafe
Dining at MELT the World Café is like taking a food trip around the world. The restaurant offers a range of international cuisine such as Chinese, Indian, Japanese and even Western. All the dishes are displayed at the buffet counters, tempting you to try each one of them.
Such sections are the Japanese corner with premium sushi, sashimi and cold soba; Thai and Chinese stations that offer red duck curry crab cakes and local favourites, just to name a few. While these are main stays in the brunch menu, there’s a special BBQ hut outside the restaurant that’s only available on Sundays. This is dedicated to grilling seafood and meats like the crowd favourite – roasted suckling pig.
During weekends, these are best enjoyed with free flow Veuve Clicquot Champagne, wines, beers, juices and soft drinks.
