One of my top picks from the new brunch menu over at has gotta be this hefty stack of goodness. Here, two voluminous hotcakes cushion slices of house-cured salmon, caramelised onions, roasted garlic butter, a cube of "affogato" ice cream, and my favourite bit – the slabs of thick-cut bacon that have a bite as meaty as sinking your teeth through eight conjoined strips of streaky bacon.

No gimmicks, no fancy-schmancy nonsense – just simple, straightforward eggs, toast and the rest of the continental breakfast works. Probably one of the most satisfying brunches I've had in awhile.


Had such an ace Saturday the recent weekend on the Burpple x Dilmah Tea Trail, which kicked off with brunch at the far-flung but very gorgeous Meyer House!

The English Breakfast tea was the very first one we got to sample – iced and spiked with a little slice of lemon, this was a pleasantly refreshing start to the crazy tea pairing sesh we were embarking on!


Hard to beat a table full of food with some of my favourite company, especially when the nosh is good! The beef ragu pappardelle was probably the standout, and the pulled pork is quite different from other versions I've tried.


Definitely my pick from the new brunch items at @rooseveltsdinerbar because this brings together three of my favourite things: an oozy poached egg, chunky hashbrowns, and ultra-tender 24-hour braised beef cheek.

It's evidently a well-endowed stack, and quite rich, so I would recommend you come hungry or order this to share. Actually, just come hungry.


I don't even like unagi, but this immaculate fillet is so impeccably caramelised that it's hard not to be won over by it. And even better is that fuwa-fuwa heap of scrambled eggs padding the eel from below – creamy, dreamy and just pure love.

Not your regular French toast, this one comes stuffed with Nutella, cloaked in crushed cereal, and flanked by fried bananas.


Bacon and eggs are always a good idea. Even more so when they're served atop juicy shreds of Atlas' slow-cooked pulled beef and caramelised onions, with crusty, slightly chewy sourdough to pad them up.

Really attractive pricing, with nothing over $13.80 (for the British Breakfast Platter loaded with the full works), and Truffle Tater Tots at only $6. Definitely worth checking out if you're in the area for brunch.

I am obsessed with Milk & Honey's donut waffle – so crisp on the outside yet gloriously dense and soft and moist within.

Here, it's used as the foundation for eggs Benedict variations; Royale and Florentine. The one I selected was the signature, which comes with thick, meaty pieces of ham and turkey bacon and of course, the piece de resistance – oozy poached eggs.

If I had to pick on something, it'd be the torched hollandaise, which would have benefited from a little more lemon juice.


This is what I call awesome service recovery: when a restaurant voluntarily offers dessert on the house after a prolonged wait for the mains earlier.

Even better when said dessert is a beautiful, (deliberately) lopsided stack of buttermilk cushions accompanied by raspberry sorbet, macerated strawberries and vanilla bean creme anglaise – tasted every bit as divine as it looked!
