May the weekend brunch ritual continue! Regardless of where I am in the world, brunch on the weekend is a must. This weekend, my aunt and I decided to try an eatery in Seletar Aerospace Park. A slightly out-of-the-way area, it has seen some interesting eateries settle in since its opening. We couldn’t decide between two: Wildseed Café and YOUNGS Bar & Restaurant. After browsing both menus, we decided to go for the latter, as they had launched a relatively new brunch menu.

Coming in at 11:30am on a Sunday (my ideal time for brunch), we requested a table inside, as it was a rather hot and sunny morning. The brunch menu itself isn’t that large, so it was easy to pick out what I wanted. We were told that their ‘Grub’ menu and Pizza menu were also available at this time. After having a browse, we decided to share the following dishes:

  1. Crab & Eggs Benedict – This was my choice of main from the brunch menu and came with crab meat and two poached eggs served on English muffins with hollandaise sauce and mesclun salad on the side. I opted for the hollandaise sauce to be served on the side because I’m not actually a fan of it but wanted to taste it. I thought this was a pretty good attempt at an alternative ‘Benedict’ – there was a good amount of crab meat and the eggs were actually stunning. They came out perfect – wobbly when the plate was moved but still strong enough to hold itself. The yolk broke perfectly when cut into and it tasted creamy and rich! However, the English muffins were far from what English muffins actually are – these tasted more like brioche bread shaped into a circle and slightly flattened. I did like the amount of salad served on the side, as it provided a refreshing crunch to the dish.
  2. Croque Madame – This was my aunt’s choice of main from the brunch menu and consisted of a slice of sourdough toast topped with honey-baked ham and melted cheddar and mozzarella cheese, finished with a fried egg on top, and served with mesclun salad on the side. This was my least favourite of the dishes we ordered because I found the ham to be far too salty – it tasted more like smoked ham than honey-baked ham. When topped with two types of cheese, it added even more saltiness so each mouthful was too much for me. The cheese also didn’t taste very fresh or appetising. The fried egg on top was done quite well though.
  3. Mushroom Arancini – We ordered this off the ‘Grub’ menu and was the best choice and dish we had! A serving came with four deep fried mushroom risotto balls stuffed with cheese, mushroom, and truffle, and served with mesclun salad and truffle mayonnaise on the side. I absolutely adored these because they came out warm and fresh, they were extremely flavourful, and had the perfect combination. The cheese in the middle was nice and gooey when the risotto balls were cut into, the risotto itself was well seasoned and flavoured, and the truffle mayonnaise made it extra delicious!

  4. Judging from what we ordered, I would say that this eatery does much better bar food than it does brunch items. It does make sense given that its name includes the worlds ‘bar’ and ‘restaurant’, rather than café. I’d visit again but to try out their lunch or dinner dishes and perhaps a place to grab drinks
