Dean & Deluca SG: Halloween Specials & Sweet, Sweet Brunch

I'm a big fan of quiches and pastries in D&D Tokyo but I have yet tried the food in D&D Singapore despite the fact that its flagship store at Orchard Central has opened way back since 2012. Instead of squeezing with the crowd in Orchard, I decided to visit the Far East Square outlet, which offers a quieter and more relaxed ambience to chill out on weekends.
Having encountered their huge American sized pastries before, I already had a mental preparation that the servings would be very substantial and none of them proved me wrong indeed. 

For instance, the Berries Flapjacks ($21) came in 4 fluffy rounds that were still emitting "smoke" as the top stack is lifted from the plate. These buttermilk hotcakes reminded me of the Ricotta Hotcakes by Bills in Omotesando Tokyo as they were tangy and slightly savoury, a perfect companion with the organic maple syrup.

The Belgian Stack ($18) looked like another thing that would cost anyone a sugar concussion. But if you ignore the super sweet vanilla ice cream, the waffles are pretty gratifying with toasty edges and chewy innards. I was even surprised that my waffle-loving cousin said that these were better than Creamier! Try it yourself to be the judge. 

The Sautéed French Brioche Toast ($22) was a case of "forgotten order" but I was glad it made it to our tables eventually. It was the most pricy sweet brunch item yet the most investment-worthy one. Sink your fork and knife beyond that crunchy oat coating and mop the salted caramel sauce as much as you can. This is probably the BEST French Toast I've had after the one from The French Kitchen

For the fact that these scrumptious all-day breakfast items are available in Singapore but not in Tokyo, I think Singaporeans need not always think that the grass on the other side is greener! 

Good to know also that there is no service charge and price reflected on the menu (inclusive of 7% GST)  is what we pay at the counter, be it for take-away or dine-in.    
From now till 31st Oct, D&D has also launched some Halloween specials such as Pumpkin Cheesecake, cupcakes and cookies. Stand a chance to win a $50 voucher when you post a photo of Halloween Desserts with @deandelucasg and #ddsghalloween on Instagram. Winners will be announced on 3rd Nov.
