Rabbit Carrot Gun is a British-themed restaurant located in a restored shophouse, just a very short drive from East Coast Park, so we piled in one Sunday morning to try out their brunch and test out its kid-friendliness… Sassy Mama style! Reservations are recommended as it’s a popular new spot — thankfully you can easily make them online.
With a real neighbourhood feel, we love the eclectic décor, tartan banquettes, selection of mismatched wooden dining chairs and local artwork on the walls. More than just a restaurant, Rabbit Carrot Gun also has rooms available upstairs for Bed and Breakfast customers. The brunch menu is full of yummy-sounding dishes, with a great selection of egg offerings (florentine, benedict, and even boiled with toast soldiers!). There are some healthy options (or “rabbit food”, as they call it!) like papaya salad with lime, and homemade muesli.
We ordered up some plates of scrambled eggs, bacon and sausages, and were pleased with the quality of the food (proper pork sausages) as well as the size of the portions. We’d love to come back to sample their lunch and dinner menus another time, as we hear that the Mr McGregor’s Fish Pie is awesome, and they might be the only place serving up Rhubarb Crumble in Singapore!
Thumbs up for…
Speedy service! The kitchen got our brekkies out in record quick time, which all parents appreciate when there’s a hungry toddler whining, “where’s my sausages?” every ten seconds. The waiters and waitresses were also super-smiley and friendly, and brought us new cutlery whenever little fingers dropped it, as well as making sure that hot items were placed well out of reach.
Thumbs down for…
The coffee. Unfortunately our cup of jo had a distinctly burnt taste to it, and a few mushrooms, tomatoes or other veg served with the breakfast items could really elevate the dishes from greasy spoon, to gastro-pub quality. Also, no baby-changing facilities on site, so we had to go to the boot of our car to do a nappy change.
Kinda… They’ve got one dish on their brunch menu designed for kids, but it’s basically an adult-sized portion of eggs, sausages or bacon and toast, served on a china plate.
Yep, Ikea antilops, so basically the best kind there is!
Yes. You might struggle to find parking for it inside though on a busy day.
