Singaporeans love to eat, and when that is paired with drinking champagne in the middle of the day, it is no surprise that champagne brunches have become extremely popular all over the city. While there may be many to choose from, there are a specific few that truly stand out. Here are OROGOLD’s top recommendations for the best champagne brunches in Singapore.
The Greenhouse, The Ritz Carlton Milennia
Nothing can quite beat the Sunday Vintage Champagne Brunch at the Ritz Carlton Milennia’s Greenhouse restaurant. With a live band playing in the grand dining room, a huge spread of both seafood and roasted meats, including eight different oyster varieties, 50 French farmhouse cheeses and a steady flow of Moet & Chandon vintage champagne, this is certainly the place that you want to be brunching at on a Sunday. At 1pm, the talented chefs put on a bit of a show, shaving generous heaps of black truffle onto a 3-foot long Italian polenta, which is definitely worth tasting once they are done! If you are after something even splashier, OROGOLD recommends booking yourself a spot on one of the restaurant’s Superbrunches, which are held twice a year. With dishes prepared by a Michelin-starred chef, brought in specially for the event, and 21 food stations that span the length of the hotel’s first floor, this is easily somewhere that you could spend many happy hours!
The Edge, Pan Pacific
While most champagne brunches in Singapore last for up to 3 hours, the Sunday champagne brunch at the Pan Pacific hotel’s The Edge restaurant stretches out for up to 4 hours. With a never-ending stream of Veuve Cliquot champagne, along with fantastic gourmet dishes, this will be the most enjoyable and leisurely meal that you have all week. Unlike many other brunches, where the majority of dishes are served buffet-style, The Edge does things slightly differently. Here, guests will find seven live cooking stations, where they can choose from a variety of dishes, such as grilled Wagyu beef or a Thai salad. OROGOLD also loves the two-meter long cheeseboard, featuring 30 different artisan cheeses.
Bar and Billiard Room, Raffles Hotel
The Sunday champagne brunch at the Raffles’ Bar and Billiard Room, located in the lobby of this majestic hotel, is a must for all those meat-lovers out there. Carnivores will be delighted with the wide variety of meats at the cold cuts and carving stations, all of which have been freshly flown in from around the world and include dishes such as roasted Welsh lamb, Australian prime rib, peppered tenderloin carpaccio, and barbecued Iberico pork ribs. The Colonial atmosphere in the dining room is unparalleled, with its wooden furniture, tiled floors and grand chandeliers. The champagne that is served up with the brunch is Billecart-Salmon Brut Reserve, making it easy to get through quite a few glasses! If you still have room in your stomach at the end of the meal, OROGOLD highly recommends giving the mascarpone calamansi ice cream a try – you won’t be disappointed!
With endless plates of gourmet food and a never ending flow of the finest glasses of bubbly, Singapore’s champagne brunches are definitely the place to indulge on a Sunday. Although there are many to choose from all over the city, the restaurants that OROGOLD has listed are some of the best, so be warned that you are likely to need to make a booking in advance.
