Singapore Grand Prix: Where to go for a boozy Sunday brunch
This long-standing F1 Sunday brunch affair is a pit stop for anyone looking to go the whole nine yards. Stretching across the storied spaces of the Raffles Grill, Tiffin Room, and hotel lobby itself, the three-hour-long feast sees Billecart champagne flowing freely while you chow down on freshly shucked oysters, sweet Alaskan king crab, and clouds of scrambled eggs topped with sea urchin. The Iberico pork ribs are as decadent as they sound while the spread of cheese and dessert will tempt you to graze till your eyes glaze over. Schedule time for a post-meal nap before you head down for the races. You'll need it.

The Perrier Jouët champagne's a given here, but mezza9's sommelier has gone the extra mile to put together 10 premium red and white wines to toast to. Think a 94-pointer Cabernet Sauvignon from Parker Coonawarra Estate and Bodegas Muga Rioja Reserva which garnered 90-points. Take your time to savour these exquisite pours while you make your way around a buffet spread brought to life with live stations dishing up everything from char-grilled Black Angus beef to nigiri sushi.

David Myers' mod remix of the classic izakaya is set to get even buzzier when a DJ takesover the restaurant this Sunday, laying down beats that'll get you up on your feet. It's easy to work up an appetite, too, with a generous selection of chilled seafood, light salads, and innovative brunch mains. A Dom Perignon pop-up bar means that you'll find their top-shelf 2006 vintage available, too.
