Fullerton Hotel Town Restaurant G’Day Sunday Brunch

The Fullerton Hotel Singapore and The Fullerton Bay Hotel Singapore present a taste of Australia to mark the first anniversary of sister property The Fullerton Hotel Sydney. From 18 October to 30 November, guests can look forward to Aussie-themed, Singapore-inspired dining promotions that draw on the rich culinary cultures of both countries. Interestingly, the Fullerton Hotel Sydney also shares a similar history as a previous General Post Office.

I tried the G’Day Sunday Brunch at Fullerton Hotel’s Town Restaurant, which is only available on 18th and and 25th October. This is not the usual Sunday Brunch with a cursory nod to the Aussie-theme by featuring just a couple of Aussie-linked dishes. Many dishes feature ingredients brought in from Australia and there are also dishes that are quintessentially Australian. If you plough through all the Australian dishes, you would probably stagger out of the restaurant a very satisfied person.

Here’s a list of all the dishes that are Aussie-themed or feature ingredients from Australia:

  • Australian Brekkie
  • Australian Moreton Bay Bugs
  • Tasmania Mussels
  • Australian Peaches / Australian Beets
  • Australian King Fish Tiradito
  • Crackling Australian Pork Belly
  • Wok Fried Australian Yabbies
  • Australian Swimmer Crab
  • Slow-Roasted Australian Dorper Lamb Leg (My favourite!!)
  • Pan-flashed Stanbroke Australian Hanger Steak
  • Hickory-smoked BBQ Australian Pork Ribs
  • Cheeses such as King Island Dairy Ash Brie, Berry Creek Riverine Blue Chese
  • Anzac Biscuits, Pavlova, Lamingtons

and many more

Fullerton Hotel The Courtyard Afternoon Tea

Checked out the Fullerton Hotel The Courtyard Pink Afternoon Tea last week. It’s been awhile since I last stepped into Fullerton Hotel. In fact the last restaurant meal I had before the Circuit Breaker was at Jade at the Fullerton Hotel. I like dining at the Fullerton Hotel. You might say that goes without saying because it’s a posh luxury hotel. What I mean is that they take the COVID-19 precautionary measures really seriously. The tables are spaced really far apart and it feels like you’re in your own little cocoon for the 3 hours that you are here for afternoon tea.

Fullerton Hotel The Courtyard Afternoon Tea

Despite the price tag of $51 for a weekday afternoon tea, I saw that nearly all, if not all the tables were full. As I’ve mentioned a number of times previously, there are various types of afternoon tea concepts in Singapore. There is the

  • Buffet style, which is obviously unlimited servings (although now probably served to you ala-carte style but in unlimited servings)
  • Three Tier single serving
  • Three Tier unlimited servings

Sanook Kitchen– Affordable Thai food worth coming back time and again!

Contrary to popular belief, I don’t always eat at expensive restaurants. Here’s proof.

Sanook Kitchen (1)

Sanook Kitchen opened late last year at East Point mall and has been my go to restaurant for fuss-free, tasty and affordable Thai food. I have been treating it like my “office canteen” during this work-from-home period! You can basically get a meal starting from $5.90++. There are quite a number to choose from such as Basil Chicken/Beef Rice, Pineapple Fried Rice, Seafood Fried Rice with Shrimp Paste and Phad Thai just to name a few. The rice dishes come with a fried egg too.

Josh’s Grill – Affordable and generous portioned Western food in the heart of Bugis Junction

I like going to Bugis Junction due to its convenient location and numerous shops, but unfortunately it’s never been a place I associate with good and affordable food. Glad to report that I’ve since discovered a new and affordable restaurant to recommend everyone, called Josh’s Grill. The price point is really attractive for a restaurant. For example, chicken dishes are $10.90 and pasta dishes start from $9.90 up to $14.90. They are even cheaper than Swensens next door, which a lot of families like to go to for their relatively affordable pricing.

Josh's Grill (10)

But what makes Josh’s Grill even more value-for-money is that the mains all comes with your choice of two sides. This concept is not uncommon in Singapore. For example Buddy Hoagies, Astons and Kenny Rogers boast such a concept where you get to choose from a range of sides. What makes Josh’s Grill stand out is their variety of side dishes. Take for example the Mala veggies. I’ve never seen a Western restaurant offer this as a side dish, and now I’m wondering why the hell not?
