If you’re a long-time reader of our mag and website, you’ll know by now just how much we love our weekend brunches – especially if they come with unlimited bubbly! Which is why we’re thrilled that The Pelican has recently launched a new Sunday champagne brunch buffet, featuring a wide spread of all-you-can-eat seafood and steak, complemented with free-flow alcohol. Read on to find out what you can expect at this weekly feast.
What to expect
Situated in One Fullerton, The Pelican boasts picturesque views of the Marina Bay waterfront for the perfect, laidback Sunday afternoon with friends and family. From 12pm to 4pm every Sunday, the all-new champagne brunch ($138 per adult with free-flow champagne, prosecco, wines, beers and soft drinks) is a must-try especially if you’re a crustacean fan. You can look forward to a limitless supply of the restaurant’s signatures like classic lobster bisque, grilled barramundi, lobster sliders, chilli crab linguini, New York striploin steak and more. And, on top of that guests get a serving of two platters: grilled seafood plate and oyster and prawn plate. Your littles are welcome here, too – they’ll be treated to an array of free kids’ activities while you feast and sip on your glass of bubbly. Plus, children below the age of eight dine free with a paying adult, while those from nine to 12 years pay $38 each.
Not big on drinking? Get the non-alcoholic option ($98 per adult), or you can opt for the second option ($118 person), which includes everything except for champagne.
Until 24 December, enjoy a complimentary upgrade to the next price category – which means you’ll still be treated to unlimited champagne if you pay $118. A pretty sweet deal, if you ask us!
Our online editor Emi Finch heads to The Pelican to test-drive the brunch – read on for her thoughts!
“Located on the water’s edge down on the Bay, visiting guests will be wowed by the view upon arrival. Head indoors and nestle into one of the American-style booths to feast on some seriously fresh seafood. There’s also lovely oval shaped corner booth that seats eight to 10 people, which would be ideal for a group of friends or a special occasion. The beauty of a brunch where the food comes to you is that it just makes for a much more social and indulgent experience. We took the kids along with us, which isn’t something we would normally do for a brunch, but armed with the colouring packs presented to them on arrival and a few other activities, they seemed to be entertained. However, I’d say this brunch is best tried with friends or visiting guests, minus the smalls.
$138 gets you unlimited champagne, wine, beers and soft drinks, plus as many side plates as you like. Highlights for us were the steak, beef sliders, clam chowder and red velvet cake. The grilled seafood plate, complete with a whole barramundi, baked oysters, squid, and baked lobster is also part of the deal. The oyster and prawn plate is an absolute must-try, too: freshly shucked oysters that were, according to my husband, the best among all the brunches he’s tried in Singapore, and I can testify that the prawns really were fantastic. ”
