Coming 4 June 2017, Flip Flop at Level 6 of One Farrer Hotel & Spa will be starting their Pop Up Sunday Brunch, which is located besides the swimming pool. Specially curated by the culinary team at One Farrer, the food is beautiful in presentation as well as taste. Not only that, many of the ingredients are harvested directly from the 11,000 sq ft farm at the hotel. I was surprised to know that the farm has over 65 varieties of edible plants, herbs, spices, fruits and vegetables.
Ginger Lemon Fusion
You will understand why I mentioned that the food here is beautifully presented when even the coolers - Cloudy Bay ($10) and Ginger Lemon Fusion ($10) are so Instagrammable. The sweet and refreshing drinks are perfect for the humid Singapore weather.
Cold Angel Hair 4/5
Starting with some starters, we tried the Cold Angel Hair ($12) which is infused with truffle and topped with shio kombu and caviar salad. This may not be a new dish but it still manage to delight me with its earthy aroma and springy texture.
Jamon & Trio Cheese Baked Egg Hash 4.5/5
Good for sharing among 2 people is the Jamon & Trio Cheese Baked Egg Hash ($14). I was rather surprised how the different cheeses work harmoniously together to elevate the whole dish. It was savoury, cheesy, creamy and more important addictive.
Grilled Apricot, Farm Picked Green Lettuce with African Chicken Salad 4/5
The next dish we tried is the Grilled Apricot, Farm Picked Green Lettuce with African Chicken Salad ($14). The tender chicken roulade is dressed in a satay-like sauce which I find it very palatable and enjoyable.
Boston Lobster Benedict 4.2/5
For a luxurious enjoyment, one can go for the Boston Lobster Benedict ($30) which comprises of poached lobster, avocado, tobiko roe and holladise sauce. While the holladise sauce is not as rich or intense, I actually like it that way so that it did not mask the sweetness of the lobster flesh.
Smashed Avocado on Doris's Dilly Bread 3/5
The Doris's Dilly Bread in the next dish is made using the chairman's mum recipe. We all love the bread. Unfortunately I felt that the Smashed Avocado did not give justify to it, it tasted rather bland and lacklustre. Even though there are sweet corn, poached egg and Jalapeno pesto besides the avocado, it did not manage to zest it up.
Poached Egg, Breakfast Ham, Mixed Mushroom, Muffin 4/5
Sunny Side Up, Roasted Beef, Farm Fresh Salsa, Potatoes 3/5
Diners are also given choices for the brunch at Flip Flop. They get to mix and match their selection of Eggs (poached, sunny side up, omelette, scrambled), Protein (bacon, sausage, breakfast ham, roasted beef), Greens (farm fresh salsa, mix mushrooms, roasted tomatoes, smashed avocado) and Carbs (toast, muffin, croissants, potatoes). Minimum of 2 choices at $12 to a big breakfast of 4 choices at $18.
Mini Pancake Stack with Mixed Berries & Passion Fruit Cream 3.5/5
For dessert, we had the Mini Pancake Stack with Mixed Berries and Passion Fruit Cream ($8). The mini pancakes was light and fluffy, complemented by the sweet passion fruit cream. It is actually quite good on its own too.
Baked Granola Tart with Low Fat Yogurt & Mixed Berries 4.5/5
After numerous attempts, the kitchen finally manage to make the granola tart holds. Coated with chocolate and crowned with mixed berries, the Baked Granola Tart with Low Fat Yogurt & Mixed Berries ($8) is like a piece of art on the plate. It hurts me to destroy it but then its too delicious to leave the art piece untouched.
