Great weekend brunch spots to get your egg fix and take Insta-worthy pictures.
Open Door Policy
19 Yong Siak St, tel: 6221-9307 www.odpsingapore.com The revamped weekend brunch menu here is nutritious, and glutenas well as dairy-free. What’s more, the fresh greens and herbs in the dishes come from Open Door Policy’s own vertical green gardens. The Dairy-Free Portobello Omelette ($24) is surprisingly fluffy and a great option for something light. It is paired with portobello ragu, and topped with watercress puree, and mustard leaves.
35 Kampong Bahru Rd, tel: 6222-4869 www.facebook.com/StrangersReunion The cafe’s new menu is inspired by its owner’s clean eating habits. One must-try is the Strangers Smoked Salmon ($17.90), which is a unique take on your typical Eggs Benedict with smoked salmon. The salmon is smoked in-house to bring out its natural ﬂavour. Your order comes with one ﬁllet, a feta, walnut crumble and arugula salad, soya-infused bread, as well as two perfectly poached eggs dressed with hazelnut bearnaise. We love how the runny yolks ooze out with a ﬂick of the knife.

This latest lifestyle offering from The Providore brand is also its ﬂagship outlet in Singapore. Cosy and laid-back, it is great for a casual brunch. Order the Spanish Baked Eggs ($18.50) topped with a spicy tomato sauce, smoked paprika and shaved manchego cheese, and served with grilled chorizo, a chilligarlic ﬂavoured sausage.

115 Amoy Street #01-02, tel: 6235-4990 www.bochinche.com.sg
This serves up brunch with an Argentiniantwist. Our favourite: Bochinche’s Faina &Fried Eggs, Crushed Avocado, Coriander& Aji Molido Creme Fraiche ($22), whichis a far cry from the classic eggs and avocado combo. Light yet satisfying, this comes with an avocado mash and mildly ﬂavoured sunny side ups with creme fraiche and a sprinkling of ground red Argentinian pepper (aji molido).
#01-01 Downtown Gallery, tel: 9690-7057 www.facebook.com/theautobus.cc
This bicycle-themed cafe has a weekend brunch menu that will leave you spoilt for choice. Recently opened, we recommend the Eggs Ben ($12). The chef serves it with a tangy curry hollandaise sauce that goes perfectly with the poached eggs and bacon on an English muffin.
