If you’re looking to start the weekend off with a superb gourmet spread with tipples in hand, these are our top picks for Singapore’s best boozy Saturday brunches.
This is slowly becoming one of our new favourite spots. Not only for it's food, but for the ambiance.

Oh, and did we mention you can wash it all down with glasses of Perrier-Jouët Grand Brut?
If you’re in the mood for some seriously good Catalan cuisine, then FOC is a solid bet, even more so now that they’ve started their Saturday Overflow events.
