It's time for brunch! In fact, there is never a time where you can't have an all-day breakfast. This time round I went to check out Bronte
that is nested in the Bukit Timah enclave near Sixth Avenue. The place has been on my radar since foodie and entrepreneur @Yongfook
instagrammed about it a week ago.
was created after the demise of Uluru
on Duxton Hill, an Australian steak restaurant which was very good, as I used to go there occasionally for their set lunches. However, at Bronte we only focus on their brunch food for now. They have the steaks too, which warrants a dinner visit another time.
The ambiance was quite pleasant, the inside was very shady and not glaringly sunny like the outside.
So they serve brunch from 9.30am-2.30pm on weekends only. Be sure not to go in late for their eggs and assorted brunch items then!
Ordered a latte
, $4.50. Not sure if it was australian coffee. It was once again, just a latte. Argh, I wish I could do a better job reviewing coffee but my tastebuds just can't pick up anything related to drinks (coffee, wine..). So you have to try it for yourself.
My friend had a long black
($4). It was according to him, the most bitter coffee he has ever tasted. He left about half of it there. You have been warned.
Next up the food! Yay, I had the English pork sausage with scrambled eggs, potato hash, roasted tomatoes and rye toast
($17). It was a very classic and simple combination of good old favorites.
What I liked was the potatoes that was done just right, mixed with the fragrance of the bacon, and the more exotic rye toast they had. The tomatoes were a tad puny. The eggs was fine as well, slightly drier (like about 10%) than what I like. The sausages were saltish and flavorful but not exactly bursting with goodness. I was suitably full after this dish.
My friend ordered the smoked salmon scrambled eggs with garlic portobello, sauteed spinach, home-baked beans and rye toast
($17). It was really wholesome as well. Great for people who likes their veggies, though if its the shrooms I'll prefer to go to Artichoke
for their organic shrooms!If you are around the Bukit Timah area, do think of Bronte for a lazy weekend brunch if you like what you see on their menu because their brunch is decent.Otherwise there are also other great brunch places around, notably Choupinette and from what I heard, Baker & Cook which I have yet to check out.
