If you live by the code, ‘Go big or go home’, then you surely cannot miss the all-new weekend party brunch at SO/ Sofitel Singapore’s Xperience restaurant. Available only on Saturdays from noon to 2pm, you can indulge in a range of over-the-top towers loaded with scrumptious sweet and savoury temptations that will satisfy all of your cravings.
The first-ever brunch tower in Singapore
Featuring three tiers of sumptuous made-for-sharing food platters plus a range of overflowing à la carte platters served straight to your table, trust us when we say this style of menu – that’s undoubtedly Singapore’s first – makes all the brunch spots around the island look like child’s play.
The savoury SO/ Brunch Tower, which is available in medium and large, comes packed with grubs like smoked salmon belly, chicken wings glazed with garlic and soy, toasted sourdough with smashed avocado and feta, bratwurst as well as local treats such as “goreng pisang” (fried banana fritters) and fresh tropical fruits.
For those with a sweet tooth, dig in to the SO/ Sweet Tower that’s loaded with assorted pastries and baked goodies including (but not limited to) homemade banana cake with sour cream, pancakes, assorted nyonya kueh, and Nutella crepes.
If you want to take it up a notch even further, go for The Mother Of All Towers which comes teeming with house cured salmon, artisan cold cuts and cheeses, and Australian striploin steak among other delicious nosh.
Got room for more? Add on the Loaded Platters, which comes in either seafood or meat platter option – expect premium ingredients such as Boston lobster, Hokkaido scallops, and Australian wagyu ribeye.
It doesn’t stop there – elevate your experience by adding two hours of free-flow booze to help get the party started. You can imbibe in either the house pour beer, wine, and Prosecco or go big with Taittinger Brut and a glitzy gin cart that will be roaming through the restaurant.
Our best advice? Leave the smart dressing at home and come in your stretchiest pants because you’ll need room to fit in all the food and booze.
The culinary mastermind behind Singapore’s first brunch tower
Having worked in the industry for 16 years, executive chef Hong Dingzhao (seated in picture) is on a mission to upend stereotypes that Singaporean chefs can only make good local cuisine. He is known for using the freshest ingredients to craft a simple yet memorable international dining experience, with a heavy focus on French cooking techniques.
While he has worked for renowned celebrity chefs such as Cat Cora (the first female Iron Chef) and Joël Robuchon, and collaborated with Michelin-starred chefs, Hong often lets his Singaporean roots shine in his own interpretation of modern fusion because of his passion for authenticity and belief in cooking as an art form.
Hong now calls SO/ Sofitel Singapore’s Xperience home, and showcases his culinary creativity at the vibrant all-day café, restaurant, and bar that’s located in the heart of Singapore’s bustling Central Business District (CBD).
With a magnificent 20-foot Molteni oven as his backdrop, Hong and his team use fresh and flavoursome produce to present a variety of tasty international temptations that go perfectly well with the in-house sommelier’s handpicked selection of fine wines.
