What’s a fun thing to do at Easter apart from dressing up in bunny outfits or hunting down chocolate eggs? Having an Easter brunch (or munch) of course! Think free-flow bubbly and alcoholic milkshakes, roast meats and decadent desserts, brunches and afternoon tea buffets. Here we round up some of the best family-friendly options for Easter. Offered at some of the top hotels in Singapore, they’ll make everyone happy!
Singapore Marriott Tang Plaza Hotel
If you enjoy unwinding with a drink on the weekend, check out Marriott Cafe’s Easter Sunday lunch buffet, which takes place on 12 April from 12pm to 2.30pm. This year, the restaurant is pulling out all the stops with their drink options; on top of the usual free-flow sparkling, wines and beers, adults can look forward to a live mimosa and sangria station, as well as spiked milkshakes. The brunch buffet costs $108 per adult and $48 per child.
Pad your stomach with the lavish lineup of savoury dishes, including seafood on ice, charcuterie and cheese, and hearty roasts like the slow-roasted Australian beef and crispy pork saddle with pancetta and prunes. Don’t miss the live cooking stations, too. Highlights include pan-fried duck foie gras with cherry relish, Italian pork sausage with creamy sauerkraut, and crispy whitebait with chipotle mayonnaise.
The extensive spread also includes local and Asian fare – a must-try is the Singapore laksa, prepared at the live cooking station à la minute! For desserts, indulge in Easter-themed sweets like a giant chocolate egg tiramisu, chocolate-orange fountain and hot cross bun pudding, along with an impressive display of Easter chocolate eggs. Got the kids in tow? They’ll be entertained throughout with fun activities like Easter egg painting and balloon sculpting.
The Westin Singapore
Not a big drinker? Seasonal Tastes’ Easter Sunday lunch has an affordable alcohol-free option ($58 per adult) you can consider. Top it off with sky-high views of Marina Bay through the restaurant’s floor-to-ceiling windows, and you get an unforgettable experience without breaking the bank. Kids only cost $29, and that includes a fun-filled afternoon with an Easter egg hunt and other activities. It’s free for children below four years!
Kick-start the brunch with freshly shucked oysters, lobsters and mussels at the cold seafood counter, or head to the antipasto board for cured meats and condiments. Standouts from the carvery station include the cherry and ginger glazed gammon ham with poached pear and pineapple salad, as well as the roasted lamb leg with broccoli casserole, green peppercorn sauce and mint jelly. Then, round up the meal with decadent desserts like the signature chocolate fountain and Easter specials including a white chocolate bunny with yuzu. To make the celebration even more special, wash it all down with two hours of free-flow prosecco, wines and beers (top up $48).
Pan Pacific Singapore
For something that starts a little later, pinkies up at Atrium’s Easter Nostalgic weekend high tea buffet ($54 per person) on 11 and 12 April, from 2.30pm to 5.30pm. Fill up on all-you-can-eat English and Peranakan signatures, as well as Easter specials, displayed at the 44-metre long bar. The extensive spread includes Nyonya laksa, Peranakan pork sausage with achar, red pepper cream cheese quiche, and the signature pandan and gula melaka chiffon cake. Don’t miss out on the desserts too; chocolate fudge cake, strawberry sakura tart and gluten-free brownies are on top of our list. Then, wash it all down with your choice of two drinks from the high tea beverages menu; we love the sound of spiced cold brew coffee.
Psst… Hosting an Easter party? Check out the takeaway goodies (pictured above) from Pacific Marketplace! We loved the Apricot Dulcey Cake in Egg, a show-stopping centrepiece made of chocolate cake, apricot crème brûlée, Dulcey mousse, vanilla sponge, dried apricots and a tasty digestive base, encased within a pink egg-shaped chocolate.
