Brunch with Singapore’s Best City Skyline in view, Marina Bay Sands

Why should you go for brunch at Procacci, Customs House (facing Marina Bay Sands)?

Two words: The View

Brunch with Singapore's Best City Skyline, Marina Bay Sands
Can you not see how happy I look?

Happiness happens when you having brunch with fellow foodies before the stellar view of the latest City Skyline we’ve got in Singapore. It’s a wonder how beautiful it was with a clear and sunny skies to give the surroundings a “glorious glow”. (Side-note: I’m a retiring “night-bird” dedicated to wearing shades to work everyday. Retiring to bed that is.)

Key takeaways:

    • For a view like this, it’s worth the effort to travel to Customs House
    • Brunch can taste great even without meat or salmon
    • May have found my ROM location (*mild panic*)
Where is Procacci?

What did we eat?

Brunch! They’ve just rolled out their Brunch menu in May, which is available from 11am till 2.30pm and I was there to sample 7 out of 10 dishes that is available. But not alone, together with 6 OpenRice members! We started off with 2 vegetarian plates (out of 5) – Uova Stapazzate con Funghi ($20) and Frittate al Tartufo ($22), plus the Pollo Grigliato ($20).

We ate it all, and later requested for the group’s favourite: Fritattate al Tartufo. What is it? A beautiful egg frittata on cibatta toast (which I simply loved) and the very-amazingly-smelling truffle cream. Wah-LAH! Can you smell it too (and can you see the reflection of the gorgeous skies on the glass top table?)

Uvoa Stapazatte con Funghi is a hearty dish filled with scrambled eggs (yay!), saute mushroom, rustica toast and saute broccoli. Personally, I prefer the cibatta toast (served on other dishes) to the rustica. The eggs, mushrrom and broccoli came together for a complete vegetarian meal!  Pollo Grigliato contained the grilled chicken breast, fried egg, crispy bacon and cibatta toast (yay!). I see eggs, I see bacon and I is happy.

Next up:Fumo Salmone ($20), Salsiccia Italiano ($26) and Procacci Delizia ($30).  What’s going here? Yum yum yum SALMON!! Fuma Salmone is a smoked salmon dish with fried eggs, ricotta cheese and ciabatta toast. Salmon, cheese and cibatta toast (yay!) – awww, yummy! This was the 2nd favourite dish from us all.

The Salsiccia Italiano a plate filled with grilled spicy Italian sausages, fried egg, rustica toast and arrabiata sauce. And that was one lovely sauce that brought the whole dish to a level up! This plate does (however) pale in comparison to the other 2 dishes (for me).

Big breakfast Italian style? Procacci’s got the Procacci Delizia – fully packed with mortadella, parma ham, taleggio cheese (WOW!), scrambled eggs, rustic toast. This dish is the most expensive on the current menu and with such a generous portion – you can definitely share it with someone.

The Prosecco Surprise!

Procacci surprised us with a glass of Prosecco each! We were surprised by the loud pop sound midway eating and the sweet sweet taste of the chilled wine. I love my white wine, Moscato and Prosecco (with cheese) and…

I’m all set!

Extra Special!
Uovo Benedetto, on request!

Upon request, we had Uovo Benedetto ($22) which come with poached egg, caviar, crispy bacon and hollandaise sauce. There’s something about poached eggs that everyone loves to slice open and watch the yolk spread out! The hollandaise sauce was just nice (quantity) and not overwhelming. Eggs poached to pretty-good-level and the bacon added the crisp to this plate.

Drinks option: On regular basis (now included) you can enjoy free flow beverages inclusive of Prosecco, Peroni beer, soft drinks and juices for $35. If you to non-alcoholic it out on a Saturday, simply get the $15 free flow of soft drinks and juices for just $15. Procacci also offers other beverages such as tea and coffee on their menu.
