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

How to choose a good staycation hotel

Now that staycations are allowed again, and with no knowing of when it will be safe to travel overseas again, hoards of Singaporeans have been booking staycations to somewhat satisfy the travel bug. But with so many hotel staycation deals around, how do you know which is the best hotel deal for you and your family?

I say, the best advice would be not to be too hasty. Sit down and really compare the deals. You will probably find some very good hotel staycation deals out there, no doubt. However, at the end of the day a stay at a luxury hotel will cost several hundred dollars. Ask yourself, what else could you do with the money? Most people say they need to go for a staycation to relax. But with that money, you could have a perfectly relaxing time at a spa with spare change left over. You could treat your entire family to a meal. You could even do some minor redecorating of your room, eg buy some Balinese styled furniture or fixtures to make your room feel like a hotel room, that would have a more long term impact.

Since the Covid-19 pandemic is still ongoing, the following recommendations will give priority to staycations in less crowded hotels.

Ritz Carlton Chihuly Lounge Festive Afternoon Tea

I know Christmas is over but I wanted to share with you all our wonderful Christmas Festive Afternoon Tea at Ritz Carlton Chihuly lounge. This is my second year running having the festive Afternoon Tea here. It can be expensive to eat out for Christmas but yet you feel like you deserve to indulge a little bit given that it’s Christmas. My usual practice come December is to go for a festive afternoon tea. That way, not only can I enjoy the festive atmosphere and decorations, the bill is still somewhat manageable. I’ve always liked the afternoon tea offered by Chihuly Lounge.
