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-

Wait, hold up. Did we say unagi eggs benedict?

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.

You know you’re in for a meal unlike no other at the hands of the grand dame of Singapore cuisine, Violet Oon. Her Nyonya cooking has warmed the bellies of many Singaporeans for decades, so we’re not surprised that her Bukit Timah restaurant’s weekend brunch menu is heavily inspired by Peranakan flavours. Skip the sausages and ham – Violet’s Big Breakfast ($22) will surely wake you up with the familiar fragrant tang of otak otak, nasi kuning and sambal egg. For smaller bites, go for the French Toast With Banana And Gula Melaka Sauce ($15) or the old-fashioned Nyonya Kaya Toast ($7), elevated with fresh pandan infusion. Even your favourite roti prata gets a Violet Oon-makeover, topped with Crispy Spicy Tuna Wala Wala ($12) or the Nyonya classic Tau Yue Bak ($12), also known as slow-cooked and braised pulled pork.


The weekend brunch is served from 12pm till 230pm, alongside the restaurant’s regular lunch menu.
