Weekday Brunch at Em by the River in Singapore


I loved brunch and I love having brunch in Singapore. However, I didn't realize how hard it was to find a brunch place on a week day until I had a day to spend in Singapore waiting to catch my flight to Paris at night.

Most of our favorite brunch places only had their brunch menu on weekends. I was very happy to find that Em by the River (on Robertson Quay, very near where I used to live) served brunch even on weekdays.

The place was quite deserted when we went there
for brunch. This was around noon time on a Friday.
The place was nice. Singapore is hot,
but they had a lot of trees.
One of the seats under the sun was cement.
I can just imagine how that that is. Maybe you can fry an egg there.
I read Expat Living while waiting for our food.
I really miss my expat life and salary.

to look at, but I still like being near water.
I ordered eggs benedict and I was very happy with what I got.
The eggs were poached really well. Soft and runny.
It was definitely nothing like the CRAPPY and OVER-PRICED
Eggs Benedict we got from the brunch at the Sky on 57, a Celebrity
 Chef (who should be ashamed) restaurant in Marina Bay Sands
Tim ordered Schitzel because he wanted real food,
while I was the only one who wanted brunch.

So if you want Eggs Benedict on a weekday, just go to Em by the River and relax while you eat it. Just how brunch should be enjoyed. just saying.
