Pares Balta Cava Brut (Bubbly), $9
I think I've found the most charming Brunch destination in Singapore. Everything from the decor down to the food was simply marvelous. I loved how they brought together Mediterranean flavours and influences from some of my favourite cities - Spain, Greece and Morocco. The result is unexpectedly wonderful - you get to enjoy Cava from Spain, strained Yoghurt and smoky Haloumi from Greece, Shakshouka from the Middle East, and so on, all in one place.
Fruit and Yoghurt: Rhubarb and Apple Compote, Honeyed Greek Yoghurt, Pistachios, $10
The honeyed Greek yoghurt was really smooth and creamy, owing to the straining process. The chopped pistachios added a lovely bite and the rhubarb and apple compote tasted fabulous - adding a balanced sweetness to the yoghurt. The group of us thoroughly enjoyed this one.
Scrambled Eggs and Organic Mushrooms, $16
R had the scrambled eggs and organic mushrooms. The organic mushrooms and crumbled feta were wonderful, but their scrambled eggs were what completely blew us away - so darn creamy and delicious! You know how sometimes scrambled eggs turn out way too mushy or tough? The one here at Artichoke strikes a fantastic balance - you can just see it from the pictures. Best scrambled eggs I've ever had in Singapore, hands down!
Scrambled Eggs and Smoked Bacon Chop, $18
This dish here marries the best of both worlds - amazing scrambled eggs and a slab of heavenly, heavenly smoked bacon chop. We're talking about a half-inch thick slab of maple smoked bacon right there. Incredibly delicious!! For the sake of sustainable health, however, I'd advise just having one of these per table to share.
Relaxed Alfresco Courtyard
Isn't their quaint, laidback courtyard just the perfect place to unwind on a breezy day? I must say, the ambience, food and service really made this the best brunch experience I've had in Singapore. Though the simple but highly satisfying poached egg toasts at The Plain do come close.
P.S. Reservations for weekends are highly advised!
