Brunch: the first meal of the day for late-risers. Weekends: when we take respite in a 48 glorious hours of not having to answer to anyone, except for our stomachs. The perfect combination of both; here are five new weekend brunches worth checking out.
If you’re a workaholic like us (everyone knows the publishing industry doesn’t sleep), getting away from the hustle and bustle of the city really does help one relax. Not too far from the city, 7Adam resides in a beautiful colonial house with eclectic artworks that create a classy and exciting persona inciting one to partake in. Whet your appetite with light bites like mini wagyu sliders ($20) and bacon and quiche lorraine ($20), or satiate larger appetites with 7Adam’s hearty breakfast ($20).

My Little Spanish Place
For a cozy homely brunch away from home, head over to My Little Spanish Place where it’s evident that food here stems from the heart. While it’s not exactly groundbreaking fare, it takes a deft hand to craft something so simple and yet so entirely satisfying—a skill Chef Edward Lim seems to have perfected. On our visit, one of the dishes we particularly enjoyed was the traditional Spanish dish huevos fritos; fried eggs with house-made chorizo sausage and potatoes with aioli. While its ingredients may sound simple, dip it all in the runny yolk and savor the warmth of homemade goodness. Read the full review on Gourmet Adventures.
Seasonal Tastes at The Westin Singapore
If we’re getting up early on the weekend, it had better be worth it. Giving us reason is the all-new weekly champagne brunch The Brunch Beats at Seasonal Tastes where a free flow of Veuve Clicquot champagne awaits. An extensive spread of seafood line the counter: a range of freshly shucked oysters (including Fine de Claire), crabs, crayfish, prawns and more. Tip: they even de-shell your prawns for you—now that’s what we call quality service. Help yourself to the sashimi and sushi at the Japanese food station, tom yum and lobster mee goreng at the Asian station, or roasted suckling pig and steak a la minute at the roasted meat sections, amongst others, as well as a dessert station filled with sweet treats.

The Missing Pan
If brunching two days a week simply isn’t enough for you, The Missing Pan is the answer to your solution: all day brunch, everyday. From same people who brought us The Organic Baker—come expecting freshly baked artisan breads—The Missing Pan is a cozy loft-styled all-day brunch spot that offers brunch with a twist. Our personal favorite, the beetroot quinoa salad ($12) is refreshingly light yet substantial; crispy strips of candied beetroot juxtaposed against arugula giving it a delicious play on texture and taste.

Given its reputation of premium steaks, expectations run high and with Wooloomooloo’s extensive variety of prime meats—so it’s more lunch than brunch, but with quality like this, who’s to complain?—it’s hard to fall short. A mouthwatering selection of appetizers vied for our attention—all of which make it difficult to choose just one: trio of oysters, jumbo lump crab cake, wild mushroom risotto, Tasmanian smoked salmon, burrata mozzarella, and pasta of the day.
