Hardly anyone enjoys the idea of returning to work on Monday after an entire weekend of pure relaxation and fun. But such is life, isn’t it?
Thankfully, there are more ways than one to alleviate said Monday blues and one of the best ways we know how is to treat ourselves to a solid cafe meal. Taking into consideration the full-works, from artisanal coffees, teas to a plethora of over-the-top cafe grub, if there was ever a way to cheer us up on a dull workday, those would surely help.
Here is our guide to 19 cafes that open on Mondays for you to treat yourself on a dreadful, soul-crushing Monday.
When we think about Eggs Benedict, our minds would subconsciously drift to the image of two perfectly-executed poached eggs with runny yolks atop toasted muffins, and drenched with tangy hollandaise sauce.
However, many cafes and restaurants have since taken this dish up a level and interpreted with their own renditions to further enchant the crowd.
We have been on the hunt for some of the most interesting Eggs Ben creations around – think components such as crackling pork, juicy beef steaks and even the widely loved Mentaiko.
These unique pairings are bound to pique your interests, and here are 8 Unconventional Eggs Benedicts in Singapore To Try!
Note: Parco Caffe is no longer in operation.
Located within the tranquil Raeburn Park, Parco Caffe – by the folks behind Spruce and Alkaff Mansion Ristorante – is where you would find solace from the hustle and bustle of city life. What is compromised for accessibility is more than made up for ambience. It was apparent that much of Parco’s emphasis is on atmosphere; from the creeping vines along its granite walls and lush carpet grass, to the floor-to-ceiling windows that bathed the café in natural sunshine, this place is stunning in every sense of the word.
Eggs Benedict is one of my favourite breakfast food. When I go for brunch, I will definitely order Eggs Benedict, or convince my friend to get it so that I can try. I don’t know about you, but brunch will never be the same without it.
Eggs Benedict is a dish that has a beautifully poached egg and tender ham, sitting on top of an English muffin, drizzled with a magical hollandaise sauce. There are different popular variations like Eggs Royale, which substitutes salmon for the ham; Eggs Florentine; which has spinach instead of ham; and Eggs Blackstone, which comes with streaky bacon for the ham.
It took me a long time to do this post as I’ve been trying out different brunch places, and I am happy to share with you my list of the best Eggs Benedict in Singapore.
Sundays are so very nice. I get to sleep in late and nobody can point a finger at me. Oh what the heck, I can even have a burger for breakfast and you will not judge me for this.
How many times have I blog about the breakfast at Epicurious Cafe? How many different types of eggs have I ordered, and how often can I revisit Epicurious Cafe without seeming crazy? If it’s up to me (without consulting my wallet), I’d definitely come here for breakfast every weekend since Railmall is just five minutes away.
// Update: Mykii Brasserie Cafe is now closed
Many food lovers always like to go Holland Village as it has always been one of the popular dining spots in Singapore that has so many different restaurants. I recently came to know that Mykii restaurant actually serves brunch on weekends. It wasn’t even on my list of Brunch Places in Singapore when I had compiled it back then.
Breakfast at Mykii Brasserie Cafe is available on weekends from 11.30am – 4pm, and there are three brunch menus to choose from: Hearty Deluxe ($38), Gourmet Chic ($28) and Classique ($28). We had a Hearty Deluxe brunch set which came with a starter of homemade bread & muffin/scone/cupcake, Mykii Brunch platter, a choice of main course, dessert, coffee/tea and fruit juice. I know, that’s quite an handful isn’t it? In addition to that, we shared another Gourmet Chic brunch set which was essentially about the same as the Hearty Deluxe brunch set – less the main course.
Most of the time, I prefer to order from the ala carte menu, rather than having a brunch buffet. There’s no need for so much variety for breakfast, I’m a cereal-eggs-pancakes-desserts kind of guy. I like to keep brunch simple – nothing too heavy.
