Recommended for the brunch

We had a good brunch here but a pretty long one for about 2.5h despite some of the misses. We were lucky enough to be sitting in front of the air condition as the restaurant wasn’t chilled enough. Service was pretty OK though it didn’t start off well until we told them that we haven’t gotten any of our food after they have been ordered for quite a while. I believe that this restaurant is really short staffed and that explains the slightly forgetful service. So, we learnt a trick – that is to remind them about our food if we don’t see them in about 15min and they would be promptly served. Then again, if you are really patient and would like to have some pretty good tapas at a very reasonable price, then brunch at Sabio duxton would be your choice!

Went for drinks, ordered a sangria - was really disapointed that their Sangria didn't come with any fruit (isn't that the definition of Sangria?).  A group came in after us and ordered a jug of Sangria - which included fruit.  When asked why ours didnt have fruit the guy behind the bar said that he "ran out" but could provide us with fruit now.  Felt it was a bit too late considering they had decided to serve us the drink without all components of the drink or letting us know they had "ran out of fruit" but 5 minutes later had managed to miraculously come up with fruit for the other table in the restaurant.

Not a particularly sincere apology or any action provided by the guy behind the bar after this.  Will not be back.  Terrible experience

For full review and pics, visit therantingpanda.com The Vieiras en salsa de cava ($14) is such an endearing dish! The sea scallops are very fresh and huge, which is perfect when cooked in the sparkling white wine sauce. We finished every bit of the sauce. The La Medula ($19) is one of my favourite dishes of the night, just by looking at the presentation of the dish. This grilled bone marrow comes with toasted baguette with butter, which we will recommend to have it together. The bone marrow is very well done, fatty, chewy and soft. It feels so sinful yet so satisfying. I guess once in a while indulgence like this is perfectly fine.

Eggs. They come in all shapes, sizes, colours and varieties: white, brown, free range, barn-laid, small, large and extra large. Some come with Omega 3, others with selenium and carrot. We makes sense of it all.
What to Eat
Bingsu ice shavings, sweet rice cakes and toasts invade the cafes here. Not typically offered in traditional Korean meals, desserts are served only during special occasions as refreshments, but in Singapore, the tables are turned

What to Eat
Have fun with food as foreplay, and these items are easily bought at supermarkets. Just be mindful of allergies (gas and rashes are no fun) and be prepared to sacrifice the sheets
