La Brasserie at The Fullerton Bay Hotel is a brilliant showcase of what modern hotel dining should be. With a classic yet far from stuffy brasserie design, refined yet satisfying cuisine, and lively brunch offerings, it’s miles away from other fine hotel fare that makes us glad we’re not just in Singapore for a visit.
If fine dining were to be personified, La Brasserie would be your affable, wealthy great uncle Cliff. The one loved by all, chock full of cheer with impeccably well-seasoned tastes. The main salon of La Brasserie is clad in tartan plaid curtains swept back to not obstruct the million-dollar, two-storey windowed view. The wine library holds 800 volumes of the best pours you could ask for, while the herringbone floors and hooded table lamps lend a brasserie feel to the place. Still, the energy is far from old, with the bubbly service of excellent bistro fare second only to La Brasserie’s other service of bubbly, its noteworthy Sunday Brunch and Saturday Buffet Brunch (where champagne is swapped for Bloody Marys).
With a verve for French classics, La Brasserie produces truly great dishes like Steak Frites, Angus Tartare and a sinful upside down Apple Tartin for two. Whether for a business lunch, dinner date or boozy brunch, La Brasserie is just the ticket for a classy good time. (Apr 2015)
