2. Seafood brunch


If you’re hankering after a laid back Sunday brunch, head to Humpback and you won’t be disappointed. The small plates seafood restaurant is now serving breakfast classics like Eggs Benedict along with their signature seafood dishes.

Must-tries include the premium Lobster Roll which features sweet and succulent meat mixed with tobiko fish roe, as well as the seafood platter, which includes freshly-shucked oysters.

3. Salted yolk lava croissant


The latest salted egg yolk creation to take Singapore by storm seems to take the form of a croissant. Our favourite so far is the one created by Chef Pang of Antoinette.

The croissant layers, made with quality French butter, fall apart with a nudge of the fork, while the fillings, made with real salted egg yolks, is rich and luscious.
