What better way to relish languid weekend mornings than with a leisurely brunch?
Pop by Keyaki at Pan Pacific Singapore to try their newly revamped bubbly brunch menu, which allows diners a truly customisable Japanese brunch experience. Pick the dishes that suit you best from a selection of five options per course in okonomi style, which means ‘as you like it’ in Japanese. This is in contrast to the more popular omakase, where the chef chooses which dishes are served.
Make your way through the eight courses (which include sashimi, agemono, teppanyaki and dessert) paired with a specially-curated selection of free-flow bubbly such as Laurent Perrier Brut NV, sparkling Akazaru shochu, Mio sparkling sake, and Manzairaku Kaga umeshu soda. And with the Japanese koi pond and rooftop garden just outside, you’ve got all you need for a relaxing weekend afternoon.
Don’t miss: Steamed oysters topped with tofu refuse and salmon roe; prawn and avocado with wasabi sauce; and seared beef with ponzu sauce
Priced $75 (without alcohol), $135 (free-flow selected bubbly, sake, Tiger Beer and wines)
