So a few days ago, I went on a brunch date with one of my friends to this charming little place along the Singapore River, Epicurious (hence the title of this post). It was kind of hard to find, or maybe I just have a terrible sense of direction.
The interior was all vintagey and there were drawings (probably done by kids) stuck on the walls, making the place all homey-feeling. Hehehe.
We had vodka, best thing to start the day with, right? Hahahaha, but really, they served us iced water in these bottles. Just. Too. Adorable.
My friend had earl grey tea (I forgot the price) and I had some homemade pink lemonade ($4.50). I found the lemonade a bit too sour, but well, it’s lemonade right? Maybe I’m a bit too used to the sweet kind that I usually make on my own at home! Oops.
My friend also had the Ratatouille Omelette ($15). It was light and tasty, also quite filling I think? She said the apples tasted like apples (okay…), the toast was perfect – crispy on the outside and soft on the inside, and the omelette was yumz.
I had a smoked salmon bagel with cream cheese ($10), and this was really, really good. The bagel was lightly toasted and very fresh, with a slightly sweet taste that was so yummy I was just eating it on its own. I could live on these bagels alone forever. The smoked salmon and cream cheese filling was rather generous, and also tasted really good. All in all I was pretty satisfied, hehe.
Adorable salt and pepper shakers.
I think they also sell stuff that you can take home, like jams and stuff.
The shop had seating both inside and outside and we didn’t have to wait to get a table, although that’s probably because we went for a weekday brunch. They have all-day breakfast on weekends! I really love all the tiny things they used to decorate their cafe, detailed but not cluttered.
If you’d like to drop by, the one I went to was at #01-02 The Quayside, Robertson Quay. You can also check out their website here!
Have a happy middle-day-of-the-week! :)
