Sunday brunch at eM by the River...
Thanks to MkSurf8, I was able to try out another brunch place.
Together with MkSurf8 and Chris, the three of us had brunch at eM by the River located in a quiet corner of Robertson Quay.
You know how some people say that Sundays are made for brunches? Well, eM by the River gives one a really nice brunch feel.
Picture this. Al fresco dining area overlooking the Singapore river. No noise to be heard except that of kids of expats playing around. Every so often, you'd see a runner or two pass by while you enjoy your breakkie.
The brunch menu offers the usual breakkie items like Eggs Benedict, Omelette, Pancakes. It was kind of hard to decide what to get. The smart choice was the American Breakfast. For $20, you get eggs, sausages, mushrooms, bacons, tomato & toast, butter and jam plus coffee and juice. Not bad, eh. Some would say it's a bit overpriced considering that the items on the plate are very simple and easy to cook. For me, it was just okay since I also enjoyed the ambience of the place, the lazy Sunday morning mood, and the company of my becks buddies. Hehe!
There are also other non-breakkie items, if you're not in the mood for breakkie food.
From what I read, the place is also a nice afterwork chillout venue where one could have drinks while chatting with friends with relaxing music playing in the background. It's perfect for those working in the city, but not for people like me whose office is far, far away. Haha!
eM by the River serves all day breakfast (from 9am to 3pm daily).
