Asian Yam Gnocchi, Fried Chicken Pancakes And Unagi Eggs Benedict: 7 Eateries That Do Brunch With A Twist

Jazz up your regular eggs benny and waffles at these places

We love a good brunch. More than just the combination of breakfast plus lunch, brunch is a social event. It’s an ingenious invention that makes getting up late on the weekends OK. It’s quaint bistro backdrops against totally Insta-worthy avocado toasts, granola bowls, unagi eggs benedict, and-

That’s right – throw all your conceptions of the traditional eggs benny and croissants out the floor-to-ceiling window, and make way for more hearty, fusion and exotic dishes that will satisfy both your sweet and savoury cravings in one.

This quirky little restaurant just oozes with old-school charm, and the playfulness of their retro décor also transfers to their modern Asian fusion menu. It’s hard to find a weekend brunch more wide and inventive than Xiao Ya Tou’s, which draws diners in with their signature Unagi Benedict ($16). Sandwiched between fried mantou buns are poached eggs drizzled with a citrusy Yuzu hollandaise sauce, mushrooms, and a slice of grilled unagi. Cut into the yolk and let this unique meeting of East and West explode in your mouth. Then keep the gastronomic experience going with the Asian Yam Gnocchi ($15), or the Seafood Mee Sua Soup ($19) and XYT Chai Tow Kway for more local infusions.

The weekend brunch is served from 10am to 330pm.
