Sunday Brunch at Bistro Soori
I haven’t got excited about brunch for a some time until I visited BISTRO SOORI. Located at Teck Lim Road, they serve an affordable 3-Course Set Brunch at $39 ($79 for free flow of Prosecco / House Red / House White). This is a real steal lah, and when I looked through the menu, they seem to have an exciting menu of dishes prepared with Asian ingredients using French cooking techniques.
The menu kicks off with a Confit of Portobello Mushroom, Spinach, Semi-Dried Tomato Mozzarella (ala carte $14) – a delicate and refined update from Caprese. Drizzled with balsamic vinegar, I taste the richness of the mushrooms as well as each of the subtly complementing elements.
The Roasted Tomato Soup (ala carte $12) is pretty tangy, but thankfully, the slice of toasted creamy cheese sandwich, when dunked in the soup, helps to smother the tang of the tomatoes a little.
A Brunch essential is this beautiful plate of poached egg atop of jumbo lump crab, english muffin, tomato, mesclun salad and doused with hollandaise sauce (ala carte $24 for 2). The blandness of the jumbo lump crab is relieved with the creamy hollandaise sauce.
I preferred the Pulled Pork Sandwich, Multigrain Toast, Arugula, Fries ($24) which served an umami-rich pork that enhances the flavour of this brunch dish.
For dessert, there are waffles, tiramisu, baked vanilla sponge, french toast and apple crumble. The French Toast with Pink Peppercorn Syrup and Vanilla Bean Ice Cream ($12) had nothing much to shout about.
Maybe SOORI is quite a familiar name, for the reason being that they are associated with SOORI LIVING and Alila Bali SOORI. Because the owner is an architect, it is visually seen on the interior of the restaurant. There is an open kitchen, even though there wasn’t much showmanship. But I love the interior!
