Dining out is an integral part of Singaporean society, and locals may start their day eating traditional food at a street stall or in a restaurant. In recent years, the rise of brunch culture has led to a proliferation of eateries serving Western dishes such as pancakes and poached eggs, and food from other parts of the world is also served providing an eclectic range of options.
The Missing Pan
Opened in November 2013, The Missing Pan is an all-day bakery and brasserie run by husband-and-wife team Bernard Toh and Grace Chia. Featuring tantalising-sounding dishes such as Quack Quack Eggs Benedict and Beef French Toast Salpicon, this is a breakfast menu to be savoured at leisure. Top tip: try the freshly baked organic bread.

Served from 10am to 5pm every Sunday, the Southern Comfort brunch at the Beast is a sight to behold.

Accompany your choice with a glass of sweet tea or opt for the Mimosa (sparkling wine with orange juice).
