There are plenty of ways to celebrate Easter and most involve the participation of the symbolic egg: painting eggs, overdosing on hollowed chocolate eggshells, or even cooking a giant omelette with 15,000 eggs. We get it, Eastertide is all about egg-related traditions and puns, but where does that leave for the Easter rebels who are out to brunch?
From 30 March to 1 April, the newest kid in the brunch scene, Caffe Fernet, offers something entirely unique and scrumptious — Easter Weekend Brunch Special. Currently the “It” place to brunch your heart out, Caffe Fernet’s ironic Easter brunch bonanza involves the absence of tacky bunnies and a menu devoid of any semblance to eggs.
Located at Customs House, the latest restaurant-bar by Jigger & Pony Group posits a spritz of sprezzatura, mod-Italian flair into its exclusive brunch menu, with flavours leaning towards a lighter profile and cosmopolitan touch, rather than quaint fare found in home kitchens.
Tuck into the Lamb & Frosé Brunch Special, where you can choose from two different lamb mains — ‘Piedmontese’ Ravioli stuffed with red wine-braised lamb and veal, olives and rosemary then finished with lamb jus and pecorino; and Roasted Lamb Rack, served with honey and mint gremolata.
Another must-try is the Grilled Red Snapper with sun-dried tomato, Calabrian chilli, and oregano. To accompany the delightful affair, choose between Strawberry Frosé or Watermelon Frosé, a vermouth-fuelled slushie concocted with rosé wine.
Caffe Fernet’s well-crafted themed menu appeals to the discerning gourmand who relish in elegant reinvented Italian classics. With so much good hearty food, who needs eggs?
