Three to try: The Sunday brunch special
Our shortlist of the top eats and treats in town
1. Tanjong Beach Club
Yes, their Facebook photo albums are full of bikini-clad goddesses, ripped dudes in muscle tees, and the occasional pet dog enjoying its emancipation from city life. But don't let that stop you from joining the fit elite. Tanjong Beach Club's newly refreshed menu gives you good reason to pack your beach bag and spend a lazy Sunday here with plenty of good grub. The acai bowl — loaded with bananas, blueberries, toasted coconuts, and crunchy hazelnut granola — is a good place to start. There's also perfectly scrambled eggs, annoited with shavings of black truffle and rich slices of jamón ibérico. The snapper ceviche is lifted beautifully with lime and a touch of coriander while the hearty and spicy chorizo orecchiette will fill you up nicely. For dessert, the banana coconut tarte tatin gets our vote. Left your swan float behind? Pick one up at Tanjong Beach Club's on-site Beach Shop, a nautical wonderland stocked with everything from waterguns to groovy shades from Le Specs.

The haze has lifted just in time for Spago's very first Sunday brunch party. This time around, Wolfgang Puck's second restaurant at Marina Bay Sands is leaving the white linen tables at the door. They've gone into full party mode, with free-flow champagne, a whole slew of inventive cocktails, and a Bloody Mary station for those who enjoy assembling their own version of this classic vodka cocktail. Foodwise, you'll find a buffet spread of Spago's Californian-inspired cuisine alongside live stations dishing up tempting morsels. Perched on the 57th floor of Marina Bay Sands, the views from here are quite simply one of the best you'll find in Singapore. It forms the perfect backdrop to work your way through this epic five-hour feast.
12 - 5pm. 4 September. Spago. Tel: 6688 9955
3. Morton's Singapore
Forget the waffle stacks and chai lattes. When Sunday brunch calls for a Patrick Bateman-worthy meal, make Morton's your port of call. With its impeccable execution of steakhouse classics and finely tuned service, the American restaurant is a veritable institution on our local dining scene. From this Sunday, they're raising the steaks with a three-course Sunday set lunch featuring dishes that don't scrimp on the portions. Begin your feast with a caesar salad, Morton's famed centre-cut iceberg, onion soup, or lobster bisque. The obvious main to proceed with would be the lean, tender filet mignon (call for their foie gras cognac butter, it goes perfectly well together). However, the honey-balsamic glazed salmon and short rib bolognese make for hearty alternatives, too. Save space for dessert, which includes a choice of either the double chocolate mousse, or our perennial favourite — Morton's famed key lime pie, arguably the best in the city.
