(CLOSED) Weekend Brunch @ Salt Tapas & Bar (Raffles City)

 photo salt tapas brunch 7.jpg
It's been a really long time since I've found an impressive brunch spot and I'm beyond ecstatic that Salt Tapas & Bar has rolled out a brunch menu that left me in a severe but happy food coma. Trust me, the extensive menu will have you staring at it for a long time because you simply can't decide what to order! You know a restaurant is legit when you've been there three times, and you're blown away every single time.

While the facade of the restaurant might suggest hefty prices, I'm pleased to be the bearer of good news that brunch here is unbelievably affordable. The Eggs Berentine, a playful merger of eggs benedict and eggs florentine, is a solid outfit of flawlessly poached eggs, ham, spinach and dashi-infused hollandaise atop housemade muffins. And it carries a proud price tag of $14. Did I shock you? Oh, wait till you finish going through this post.

Pasta Fresca Da Salvatore @ Boat Quay

With a long history of 28 years, three outlets and 336 pasta dishes under their belt, it's no wonder that Pasta Fresca is a household name when it comes to Italian cuisine. As you may already have guessed from the name of the restaurant, Pasta Fresca is widely known for their range of pasta dishes. However, did you know that they do a pretty mean steak and yummy pizzas too?

The Chinese New Year Luncheon was quite an extravagant affair which started with an energetic lion dance performance with Pan Pacific Singapore's very own "lions", followed by various other performances on stage while signature dishes from all the properties under Pan Pacific Hotel Group were served. An adorable monkey from Pan Pacific Singapore arrived at our table, and he brought golden baby abalones and crispy whitebait fish with him, sending the entire ballroom into a joyous cheer as everyone tossed to a prosperous year ahead.

Mellben Signature - Delightful Tze Char at Tanjong Pagar Plaza

 photo mellben signatures 9.jpg
Mellben is irrefutably one of the hottest names in town when it comes to crabs or tze char. I've been to Mellben once in 2012, and I fell so deeply in love with the soup of their claypot crab bee hoon that I insisted on taking away the rest of the soup, so that I could have it for supper. I haven't been back since because the north just seems too far for me. Hence, you can imagine my happiness when I learnt that they now have an outlet at Tanjong Pagar!

In February, Hong Kong Art Collective, Parent Parents, flew to Singapore and painted several walls in Hotel Jen Tanglin. Diners had the chance to watch the artists paint graffiti live in J65 while enjoying a sumptuous buffet spread. My dining partner and I also took the opportunity to snap a photo with the pretty wall.

Lai Huat Signatures @ Far East Square

Lai Huat Signatures is a casual dining tze char restaurant in the heart of the central business district. It proves to be a great place for after-work gatherings and regulars can now get a taste of their favourite Sambal Fish at a more centralised location, instead of having to go all the way to East Coast!
