Shenton Way feels drastically different on a weekend. Gone are the hordes of office warriors who walk fast enough to create a stampede, leaving a handful of tourists snapping their cameras away, fresh graduates having photoshoots and a couple more of random passerby. Or you could be like us, having brunch at The Rotisserie.
With most of their outlets in the financial district (the odd one being their Rochester Mall outlet), the girlfriend and I had my birthday brunch at the China Square outlet. Very casually decorated with wooden furnishing and a couple of sofa chairs, you simply order at the counter and wait for your food to be served to you. With no GST and service charge, weekend brunches are served till 5pm.
Cafe Latte ($4.50)
My standard choice of caffeine, Illy's coffee did smell great in the morning.
Serving sourdough bread with a choice of eggs and 3 sides (Hashbrown, sausages and mushrooms in this case), my selection tasted pretty normal really. The girlfriend's breakfast was slightly more interesting with the hot, crispy rosti and a dope of sour cream. A runny egg yolk went well with it too.
Bill for two was $31.00 nett. While The Rotisserie's brunch selection didn't awe, it was decent enough for a quiet meal in a not-usually-so-quiet area. Their mains, on the other hand, looks pretty interesting and might warrant a visit soon.
