We got out of bed early last Sunday morning for a brunch mission. Alright, we probably weren't that early. Epicurious was already a busy, busy scene and Eggs Benedict was sold out. Hold on a minute. Why do they limit the number of Eggs Benedicts anyway? Still, we gave Epicurious a shot. Since it was sunny, I figured it would be great to start things off with some cold yoghurt. It was refreshing and delicious - a glorious combination of yoghurt, honey, granola and mixed fruits. Sure, I can easily pull this off at home, but it's nice to be dining sometimes, you know, gazing out at the river, soaking in the sun... you know what I mean.

Mushroom Soup at Epicurious at Robertson Quay
Mushroom Soup, $6

I think I knew that M wanted a bowl of mushroom soup even before he did. I didn't mind at all, not when the accompanying garlic toast was all crispy and cheesy! I don't think I've had a better accompaniment to my soup. We found the mushroom soup pretty decent too. There were faint hints of herbs, sour cream and fine bits of mushrooms.

It wasn't a perfectly rosy picture though. Our brunch ended with a serving of baked eggs with toast soldiers, which turned out to be surprisingly underwhelming. The eggs were fully baked, which wasn't quite what I expected. After all, how do you dip your soldiers in fully baked eggs? It'd have been better if the "soldiers" were thinner, too. The roasted potatoes were tasty, but a tad cold. Oh well, at least the crispy baked cheese sort of made up for it.

Overall, Epicurious probably doesn't serve the best brunch in Singapore, and you can expect a waiting time of approximately twenty minutes for Sunday brunch, but their prices are reasonable compared to the likes of Wild Honey. The river view is a bonus!

P.S. Isn't Robertson Quay gorgeous in the morning light?
