New Week­end BRUNCH

Expat Living (Singapore) - - Wine & Dine -

Look out, Sin­ga­pore – there’s a new boozy brunch spot in town! Lo­cated right on the wa­ter at Cus­toms House (#01-05, 70 Col­lyer Quay), The Jig­ger & Pony Group’s re­cently opened Caffe Fer­net not only of­fers great Marina Bay views but also a solid menu of modern Ital­ian of­fer­ings. We love the fact that the Satur­day and Sun­day brunch menu, which in­cludes many of the res­tau­rant’s din­ner­time dishes, is served à la carte, with an op­tion of free-flow straw­berry or wa­ter­melon frosé (a re­fresh­ing rosé wine slushy) and Aperol spritz for $55.

High­lights in­clude house-made ri­cotta and jam toast ($15), av­o­cado toast with chilli flakes, radish and mint ($15), hamachi crudo (raw yel­low­tail) atop roasted eg­g­plant, black olive tape­nade and Cal­abrian chilli ($25), and mafal­dine “ca­cio e pepe” ($25) – a four-pep­per­corn pasta with pecorino. Other must-tries in­clude a gi­ant chicken Parmi­giana sand­wich ($22) with smoked scar­morza cheese, basil and Parmi­giano- Reg­giano, and caramelised cau­li­flower with hazel­nuts and brown but­ter ($9). Fin­ish things off with the olive oil cake ($14) – baked with or­ange, pine nuts and rose­mary, and served with a side of mas­car­pone cheese and olive oil – and one of the best espresso mar­ti­nis ($22) we’ve ever tasted. The por­tions are large – even the “small plates”, so come with a group! 9178 1105 | caf­fe­fer­
