Spanish-style brunch @ Alzina Spanish Asador
Tired of the same old same old? We are loving Alzina Spanish Asador’s new weekend brunch semi-buffet that include Spanish nitbits such as iberico cold cuts, spanish chorizo stews, fish soup, Pan Con Tomate, and Manchego cheese. Along with these, popular brunch staples such as Eggs Florentine and Huevos Rotos (Broken eggs with roast potatoes and chorizo). Brunch special mains are available with the buffet, we recommend the Grilled Octopus with Chimichurri Sauce and the Grilled Iberico Pork Ribs.

British-style brunch @The Pawn
First of all….kids under 12 years old eat for free here. The Pawn, helmed by award-winning British chef Tom Aikens has started a new Weekend Brunch option that includes an option for free-flow pours and a fabulous Brunch Board. The Brunch Board includes a spread of creamy ricotta, crushed avocado, spinach salad, fresh crab meat and grilled vegetables. We recommend the Sweet Corn Pancakes with Grilled Avocado for a main dish, but British favourites such as the hearty Full English Breakfast will also be available for those breakfast traditionalists.

French-style brunch @Seasons by Oliver Es
Michelin star restaurant Seasons is doing an exquisite French Sunday Brunch starting this season. Served as a semi-buffet, guests are invited to try the French ‘wine-and-dine’ experience with an option for free flow. The brunch buffet focuses on seafood specials such as the Maine Lobster, fresh French oysters, prawns and Alaskan crab legs. Along with a buffet of cold cuts and cheese, the brunch offer comes with a selection of egg dishes and a main dish. The eggs can be done in a variety of different ways, and the main courses boast classic French dishes such as the duck leg confit. And for those sweet tooths, we really recommend the pear and almond tart.

Japanese-Brazilian-style brunch @Tokyolima
Tokyolima’s Omacasa Brunch entails four courses of small plates, hot mains and desserts, with an option for free flow. The term ‘Omacasa’ roots from the Japanese word for “Omakase” which is a style of eating where the menu is chosen by the chef themselves, and dishes are given in artistic stages unbeknownst to the guest. That being said, it’s best to not disclose what exactly is in the menu, but here’s a hint: expect some unique ceviche and izakaya style skewers with Peruvian twists.
