I don’t know about you, but brunch is one of my favourite meals. I always look forward to having brunch during the weekends. The perfect excuse presented itself a few weeks ago when I met up with Felicia for the first time since she came back from Paris, and we had brunch at our favourite neighbourhood – Greenwood Avenue.
I was trying to decide on a place as I looked through my Guide to Restaurants in Greenwood Avenue, and for some reason, Bronte, a family owned neighbourhood restaurant which serves modern Australian Cuisine, called out to me.
No prize for guessing where we went for brunch.
Bronte at Greenwood Avenue has a casual and unpretentious setting, which means to say you can go there for a good meal without worrying about having a wardrobe malfunction. If you are looking for a place to go for brunch this weekend, take up your phone and make a reservation at Bronte.
The Australian Restaurant serves brunch on weekends and public holidays from 9.30am to 2.30pm. Although the brunch menu is fairly small, you can still find all the popular breakfast food like Ricotta Pancakes ($16) with fresh banana and maple syrup; Homemade Corn Fritters ($16) with avocado and rocket salad; Scrambled Eggs ($17) with pork sausages, potato hash, and toast; Poached Eggs ($17), spinach, & hollandaise sauce on toast; and Aussie Prime Beef Burger ($16).
We tried the Ricotta Pancakes, Eggs Benedict, and Scrambled Eggs.
I am currently on many missions, and one of them is to find the best Eggs Benedict in Singapore. Unfortunately, Bronte’s Egg Benedict will not be joining that list. While it looked really good, we felt that the poached eggs were only passable, and the hollandaise sauce was somewhat lacking in flavour.
The Ricotta Pancakes, on the other hand, was pretty good. The same goes for the Scrambled Eggs with sausages and hash. All in all, it was a pretty satisfying brunch.
Since I only had brunch at Bronte, I can’t say much about its ala carte menu. But from what I’ve heard, they serve a pretty decent steak ($40-48) during dinner, and as I took a quick scan at the menu, I was tempted by dishes like Butternut Pumpkim Risotto ($26), Australian blue-lipped mussels ($28), and Slow braised beef cheeks ($36). I am definitely going to come back again for dinner.
