Her­itage Dim Sum Brunch

at The Clif­ford Pier, The Fuller­ton Bay Ho­tel Sin­ga­pore

Exquisite Taste - - Best Branches -

Lo­cated off Col­lyer Quay and over­look­ing the iconic Ma­rina Bay, The Clif­ford Pier restau­rant is part of the lux­u­ri­ous Fuller­ton Bay Ho­tel Sin­ga­pore and of­fers a range of de­li­cious and au­then­tic dishes in one of the most beau­ti­ful and so­phis­ti­cated set­tings in the city.

A his­toric land­mark, Clif­ford Pier was built in 1933 and was the first land­ing point for many of Sin­ga­pore's early im­mi­grants. Hark­ing back to the red oil lanterns that once hung from the pier to alert and guide ves­sels ashore, Clif­ford Pier was known col­lo­qui­ally as Ang Teng Ma Toi – Red Lantern Pier – by the rick­shaw pullers, taxi-driv­ers and street hawk­ers who plied their trade in and around the bay. In line with the goal of re­spect­ing and pre­serv­ing the once thriv­ing lo­cal hawker culture, The Clif­ford Pier presents a range of menus that rep­re­sent Sin­ga­pore's di­verse multi-cul­tural his­tory and noth­ing highlights this com­mit­ment more than the Her­itage Dim Sum Brunch.

Avail­able on Satur­days, Sun­days and pub­lic hol­i­days be­tween 11AM and 2.30PM,

The Her­itage Dim Sum Brunch is a truly en­chant­ing and nos­tal­gic din­ing ex­pe­ri­ence and one fully in tune with both the restau­rant's past and present.

A de­li­cious mix of in­spired buf­fet and à la minute sta­tions await guests along­side wan­der­ing hawker carts serv­ing clas­sics like steamed siew mai with to­biko roe, fen guo dumplings, pork ribs in fer­mented black bean sauce and the kids' peren­nial favourite, the steamed cus­tard bun, di­rect to your ta­ble.

The hawker theme con­tin­ues at many of the live cook­ing sta­tions. In­dulge in a plate of mixed Sin­ga­porean sa­tay com­ple­mented by tra­di­tional peanut sauce and krupuk, or col­lect a bowl of freshly tossed ro­jak – a mix of crispy veg­eta­bles, bean curd and fruit slices tossed in a clas­sic deep-red, spicy ro­jak sauce. Nat­u­rally the beloved Sin­ga­porean chilli crab is one of the favourites, along with the lus­cious tiger prawn laksa and the sim­ple, yet al­lur­ing Hainanese chicken rice. The choice con­tin­ues with an ar­ray of lo­cal spe­cial­i­ties in­spired by the melt­ing pot of cul­tures that con­verged on Ang Teng Ma Toi with dishes like wok fried sam­bal prawns, crispy

prawn dumplings, nasi kam­pung and fried car­rot cake with egg and pre­served turnip. There is a host of peren­nial lo­cal hot and cold desserts too, in­clud­ing pu­lut hi­tam, rain­bow lapis, yam pud­ding and the sweet palm su­gar filled tutu kueh. Choose freeflow soft drinks, chilled juices, Fuller­ton Bay blend tea and cof­fee or take the house wines, fizz and beer pack­age.

So­phis­ti­ca­tion and el­e­gance are the or­der of the day at The Clif­ford Pier with reg­u­lar piano and jazz ses­sions en­hanc­ing the charm­ing ex­pe­ri­ence. The in­te­rior design, with its stylish retro-mod­ern dé­cor and fur­nish­ings fea­tures ta­bles and so­fas set for cou­ples, fam­i­lies and larger groups. With the ex­trav­a­gant use of glass and open views, the nat­u­ral day­light gives a warm hue, whilst at night the grandiose chan­de­liers are as breath­tak­ing as the en­vi­able set­ting. The design makes full use of the vast sym­met­ri­cal roof purlins, a fea­ture made dou­bly ex­traor­di­nary by the pol­ished floor in the foyer, which cre­ates an im­pos­ing over­size tun­nel-like im­pres­sion as you ar­rive. It is a mas­ter­piece of design – lav­ish, mod­ern and func­tional, yet rem­i­nis­cent of a by­gone era and the per­fect set­ting for af­ter­noon tea, a her­itagein­spired evening meal or the leisurely week­end brunch.

The Clif­ford Pier is an apt set­ting for our Her­itage Dim Sum Brunch. As the land­ing point of our fore­fa­thers, it is a sig­nif­i­cant place to par­take of her­itage cui­sine and dim sum in the same nos­tal­gic man­ner as when the venue served as a bustling hawker cen­tre in its hey­day.
