Brunch at Relish

C says:

Relish has started offering brunch on weekends, from 10.30 am to 4 pm. In addition to some of their regular items like the Wild Rocket burger, there are some interesting items on the brunch menu like the Wild Eggs Benedict, sweet items like pancakes and French toast, and the two that we ordered – the Breakfast Burger and the smoked salmon bagel.

The Breakfast Burger comprises a toasted English muffin, a sausage and apple patty, egg, cheese and arugula, served with baked beans and sautéed mushrooms. The burger itself is a bit like an uber high-end McMuffin, but having said that, it was still pretty good.

Next time I’m definitely going for A’s smoked salmon bagel though. I’ve never been much of a bagel fan, because I’ve always wondered what the fuss about hard, chewy lumps of bread was. Well it appears I haven’t been having the right bagels, because the one here was really good. Toasted just right so that it was crispy outside and chewy but still soft inside, it was piled high with smoked salmon, cream cheese and arugula (again). Served with cubed potatoes which I suspect were cooked in duck fat, this is definitely an indulgence but it's worth it for an occasional treat.

Do note that while Relish was open over Chinese New Year, I think they’re taking a break the week after so to avoid disappointment, you may want to give them a call before making a special trip down.

Awesome Salmon Bagel! I really didn’t expect the brunch to be as good as it was. Definitely on my list of brunch options now.
