At the water's edge overlooking the marina, Prive Cafe
makes a lovely spot for a languorous boozy brunch. Although I generally abhor the alfresco because I usually find the weather way too hot and humid, I actually enjoy the alfresco here because it's so breezy.
Picturesque setting aside, I'm not so keen on Prive
's food. In this day and age where brunch spots are a dime and dozen, it's no longer sufficient to just get by with so-so grub. It's not that the food is bad, it's just that it's not good enough to distinguish itself.
1) Avocado and Chorizo Tartine
($18) with a duo of chilli-freckled poached eggs: well-balanced with the tinge of sour cream and peppery rocket and watercress.
2) Egg White Omelette
($19) laced with baby spinach and sauteed button mushrooms: for a healthy option, this didn't compromise on flavour. This was at once tasty and fluffy and moist.
3) Eggs Royale
($18) with poached eggs stacked upon smoked Norwegian salmon and toasted english muffins, and slathered in a velvety, albeit slightly watery, hollandaise sauce
4) Linguine Carbonara
($18): though plentiful with thick-cut bacon and mushrooms and a poached egg, got cloyingly creamy halfway through.
