Move aside, brunch! Drunch (drunken brunch!) is here and we are living for it. Say hello to lazy, boozy, foodie Sundays. With The Fatty Bao's Merry Drunch, pig out on a selection over 40 dishes, choose from a range of fruity Insta-worthy sangrias, drool over the live counters (we love the white-and-black tables set up piled with food manned by chefs who look like they can;t wait to feed you), jam out to some fresh and retro tunes from the DJ, and take gorgeous pictures with the Victoria Memorial in the background – here is where you need to spend your Sunday afternoons.
Start with a fresh salad (the raw papaya salad has our heart), follow it up with a bunch of small plates (the herbed grilled chicken skewers and sambal fish made us smile), gorge on their signature baos, choose a couple of light options from their dim sum trolley (we highly recommend the gyozas) and hover over the sushi live counter. You can get your sushi completely customised – the chefs at the counter will help you out with flavour combinations till you design the sushi of your dreams – with premium ingredients like seaweed, salmon and asparagus. Hog on thick, creamy curries and light wok-tossed noodles (not just the regular kind, they have Soba and Somen noodles as well) in a sauce of your choice, end it with the daintiest desserts from the dessert buffet.
Sitting pretty in the sunlight, the bite-sized desserts are to die for. Don’t miss out on trying the coco caramel, or get a dorayaki freshly made, and the other fresh fruit beauties!
You may have to dig deep into your pockets to enjoy this experience but it’s perfect for a celebration, end-of-week treat and if you’re in the mood to splurge. What’s also great is everyone comes dressed up to celebrate – you’ll see plenty of millennial pink floral dresses, sunnies perched on people’s heads – everyone in their Sunday best. Get ready to drink, dance and drunch!
