Melt Café & MO Bar, Mandarin Oriental, Singapore
Melt Café is one of our faves because – in contrast to some other high-end brunch in Singapore – we’ve never once felt let down by the food at any of the dizzying array of stations, from the tandoor grill and live carving station to the succulent fresh seafood and sashimi. However, if you’d rather avoid the crowds and dine out at home, then consider Melt Café’s takeaway brunch buffet option featuring Maine lobster, a seafood platter, hearty meats, a variety of decadent desserts and much more.
Alternatively, head to MO Bar for their weekend brunch, where you’ll get fresh succulent seafood like snow crab, Maine lobster and seasonal oysters and prawns. Afterwards, pick three main courses from the menu – we’d recommend the crispy Tiger prawns with a tangy masala mayo, the simple but flavourful Hong Kong-style Steamed Cod and the Gran Chu Chocolate for dessert. There’s also a range of cocktails, and we’d recommend splurging on one or two because MO Bar’s on the list of Asia’s 50 Best Bars, which means their cocktails don’t disappoint.
When: Saturdays and Sundays, 12pm to 2:30pm
Melt Café: $298 for a family of four (two adults and two children); $98 per additional adult; $48 per additional child; $40 for an additional seafood platter. House or sparkling wines are available from $28 per bottle.
MO Bar: $98++ per person; add on $58++ per person for 2 hours of free-flow Champagne and selected cocktails
