Brunch @ Pressroom Pavilion

Returning to The Press Room's latest Pavilion outpost, this time for brunch.
Earlier entries on The Press Room @ Pavilion: Sept. 11 and Sept. 15, 2012.

Available 9am-5:30pm everyday: Eggs Hemingway, or call 'em Eggs Atlantic or Eggs Royale (RM20++). Poached pleasure with smoked salmon and hollandaise sauce on English muffin.

The Pressroom's omelets come with smoked haddock (RM25++), but the restaurant ran out of the fish by early evening on a recent weekend. Substituted it with a chicken-and-egg conundrum that proved nice enough.

Ending the eggs trilogy with a croque madame (RM25++) that meets expectations, more or less.

Yolk-phobic customers can sample simple slices of The Pressroom's signature sourdough toast, partnered with Bonne Maman preserve and Lescure butter (RM18++).

Can't call it a brilliant brunch without something strong to sip: Chartreuse liquor, with an alcohol content of up to 55 percent, made by French monks using 132 (!) herbal extracts.

Grey Goose Dirty Martini and Tanqueray 10 Dry Martini.

The Pressroom,

    1. The Yum List: it's a pity though that the brunch items aren't served after 5:30pm. sometimes i have a hankering for omelets for dinner :D

  5. HHmm that butter.. don't think i had it before..
    The eggs items here still can't beat Acme (from looks alone) and the CM looks rather plain - for sure the one at Renoma right? :)

    1. Tng: ya, it's a nice butter, soft and flavorsome. I have a weakness for butter. I can't help spreading it very thickly on my bread, and when it's really tasty, I'll even eat it on its own, heh :D

  6. *for sure the one at Renoma is better right?

    1. Tng: ya, I agree with you, the egg dishes here at pressroom are well-executed but not really outstanding or memorable enough. Maybe a bit too safe and unadventurous, compared to acme, as you rightfully noted. And ya, I'd probably give the croque Madame here a 6/10 or 7/10 at the most, while the one at renoma can get an 8/10 or even 9/10 =)

    2. Thanks! Will keep my list at Renoma and Acme then :P

    3. TNG: wonder when i'll be returning to acme. i know it's been less than a year since they opened, but i'm waiting for them to revamp their menu already, heh :D

  7. would love to try the Grey Goose and the Tanqueray 10 martinis. apparently my sis told me that Tanqueray tastes really good. I don't know as I've always like Hendricks.

    1. Eiling: ooh, i actually can't really tell the difference. maybe cos i usually just drink 'em in cocktails and it's difficult to discern the subtleties when it's all mixed up with other ingredients. i should try tanqueray on its own sometime! :D

    1. YouHadYourLunch: oh yeah, it was barely 4pm when they had run out of the smoked mackerel. quite a disappointment that we couldn't try it, but i guess it's a strong incentive to return soon, heh! :D
