We think one of the best ways to celebrate the weekend (or any special occasion!) in Singapore, is by indulging in a brunch buffet with free-flow alcohol! Would you agree? From unlimited Prosecco to all-you-can-order cocktails and wines, we zero in on three interesting champagne brunches, each bringing something different to the table. If you’re visiting for Sunday brunch (or Friday or Saturday), which will make the ‘top brunch’ for you?
For the booze enthusiast
Every Sunday from 12pm to 3pm, Mezza9 at Grand Hyatt welcomes diners with its award-winning international spread, matched with unlimited drinks. In addition to the brunch buffet ($118 per adult, $59 per child), diners can include the alcohol package (top up $40), where you’ll enjoy free-flow Perrier-Jouët Grand Brut Champagne served by the bottle in an ice bucket to your table, access to wine by the glass at the all-new wine-pairing stations, certified sustainable red and white wines by the bottle, nine hand-crafted gin and tonics, a selection of martinis, and beer. Love rosé? There’s also an option of topping up $60 for free-flow Perrier-Jouet Blason Rosé Champagne instead!
Food-wise, there are six live cooking stations serving a variety of cuisines. Tuck into hearty roasts like grass-fed Tomahawk steak and Kurobuta pork chops from the grill, authentic Thai starters like som tam (green papaya salad) at the Thai kitchen, as well as sinful pastries and cakes at the dessert station.
Psst… For Thanksgiving, Grand Hyatt offers a dinner buffet (22 November) and Sunday brunch (25 November) with classics like roasted whole turkey and sweet potato casserole.
For the aspiring kitchen whizz
Featuring seven interactive live food theatres and 16 stations of premium dishes, complemented with unlimited Veuve Clicquot Champagne, gin cocktails and live music, Edge’s revamped Sunday champagne brunch is one to bookmark for your next gathering. Located on Level 3 of Pan Pacific Singapore, the brunch buffet ($128 per adult, $64 per child) happens every Sunday from 12pm to 3.30pm. It includes free-flow bubbly, wines, beers and cocktails if you top up $60, or you can add on another $20 for the option of unlimited Veuve Clicquot Rosé Champagne instead!
New to the brunch are two activities that’ll interest kitchen enthusiasts: a cocktail making session from 1pm to 1.30pm, and a live cooking demonstration from 2pm to 2.30pm. As for the buffet spread, you can expect a fab selection of Asian delights like pad Thai and pad kra pao (minced pork with Thai basil), alongside modern European dishes like pan-seared togarashi foie gras, charcoal waffles with sambal Boston lobster, and an exciting Swiss cheese fondue station. Completing the experience is a magnificent display of sweet treats, including a giant choux puff, a giant apple tart and spiral chocolate fountain that’ll please kids and dessert fans alike.
For the meat lover
Well-loved by expats and locals alike, this Italian restaurant is a tried-and-approved spot for kid-friendly brunches. Start your weekend right with hearty meats and bottomless bubbly (for two hours) at Jamie’s Italian Weekend Roast, available from Friday to Sunday, 11.30am to 3.30pm at both VivoCity and Forum outlets.
The menu (priced from $88 per person), which changes weekly based on the chefs’ creations, has seen specials such as slow-cooked braised beef cheeks with Gennaro’s sausage casarecce, mashed potatoes and crisp mesclun salad; and oven roasted pork belly topped with balsamic onion mashed potatoes, truffled brown sauce and sautéed fine beans, with Jamie’s Italian homemade fiery arrabbiata sauce on the side. Completing the experience is a small pasta of your choice. Enjoy the indulgent experience with free-flow prosecco for two hours by topping up $40.
Psst… There’s also a kids’ menu, which lets your little ones choose from a wide selection of easy and healthier eats including Margherita pizza and the Fantastic Fish Stew, which is made with sustainably-caught market fish, the restaurant’s signature seven-veg sauce, potato dumplings, peas, basil and lemon.
