If you ask me how an ideal weekend should be like, my answer would definitely be brunch. UJONG now offers a weekend Prosecco Bruch Buffet with free flow of Col De Salici Prosecco, and of course paired with the mod-sin dishes they have to offer. The a la carte brunch buffet runs from 11:30am - 2:30pm on Saturdays and Sundays.
Everything on the menu including their signature desserts are offered during their brunch, this includes their signature Nasi Lemak, as well as their Ba Chor Mee Pasta, which i have personally raved about on my previous post. If the day is too early to start on mains like those, fret not because they also have a selection of delectable breakfast options to choose from.
The simple dish of Chee Cheong Fun with Hae Bee Hiam certainly got my attention when it was served. The dried prawn floss was fragrant and complimented the soft silky rice rolls. It is also offered with 5 spice pork, which you might prefer if you like something less spicy on the tastebuds.
Again another local dish reinterperated, UJONG's version of our local carrot cake features cubes of homemade radish cake fried with egg and terrine. The Carrot Cake Terrine with Crispy Prawn Fritters were fluffy, soft and crispy on the outside, and the prawn fritters were a joy to dip with the different sauces that came with it. Personally, one of my favourite breakfast items on the menu.
The Corn Beef Hash Patties may first seem to look like our local version of eggs benedict, but not so after you have your first bite. The corn beef patties were flavourful with the right ratio of potatoes and corn beef and the sous vide eggs were cooked perfectly. The portions of the patties were pretty huge, which is also why we think this would make a hearty breakfast.
Of course, save space for dessert. As much as i love the Shendol, i also fell in love with the Puloh Hitam Pudding almost immediately. The warm moist steamed pudding resembles a sticky date pudding dessert, and i definitely enjoyed the homemade coconut ice cream, alongside the gula melaka butterscotch sauce that was served with it.
Like i mentioned at the start, everything on the menu is offered during brunch (including free flow Prosecco, if i may mention again). Priced at SGD119++ per pax, i would think UJONG is the place to be at on the weekends so you can drink and be merry over good food and ambience. Just like most places that serve up good food, reservations are recommend as they run quite full on weekends.
