Status: Thinking of when I should pay a visit to Epicurious again!
Recently I am hook on to brunch. So when Lee BB brought me to Robertson Quay after our visit to the Marina Barrage for brunch I was so excited! Partly because, he refused to tell me where we were going and I only knew it was Robertson Quay because he told the taxi uncle. After some finding (we dropped off at the other side of Robertson Quay), we finally found Epicurious! It was really popular for we saw the place was fully packed and some people are queuing.
I’m not sure if they have an inside sitting but there were only some tables outside, not a very big place I’d say. The ambience will be perferct on days with good weather (ie not raining and slighty windy)! How about the food, you may ask.
They pride themselves on their home-made food: all their dishes are cook from scratch, just like how you will be served in your friend’s/family’s place.
After a short wait,we got a seat and the waitress served us a bottle of Vodka! No lah it’s just plain water.We were told that we can only ‘hog on’ to the table for 90 minutes. Everything on the menu looks appetising and after a long while we finally decided on their “Die Die Must Try” Baked Eggs with Toast Soldiers ($6.50) for Lee BB while I had the Ratatouille Omelette ($12). We also ordered the Pancakes ($7). I LOVE PANCAKES!
Back to their Baked Eggs with Toast Soldiers, it made me drool just by looking! But the sad news was, I didn’t have a chance to taste it. Was too busy eating my Ratatouille Omelette!
The omelette was not too bad, a little special as the fillings had tomatoes and eggplants, far different from the omelette I’m used to for brunch. Lee BB was so shocked that I actually ate it as it has eggplants!
The accompanied side potatoes was pretty tasty as well. Not sure if all the dishes have them but it was there for the above dishes.
Our “dessert” the pancakes was quite worth it. For $7, you get 3 slices of pancakes topped with sugar dust and some bananas and strawberry slices. Would prefer if they have dust the sugar more evenly and give more fruit slices though. Not the best pancakes but I like ALL (ok not all but most) pancakes so it was good enough for me! If anything, the maple syrup would be enough to make my day, LOL.
