The Dempsey Brasserie isn't new, but this is our first visit there. It's located in the Dempsey district, and is housed in this charming colonial style apartment.
A check on the internet reveals that the chef here has previously worked @ PS Cafe and the now defunct The Nautilus Project. So you get an idea of the food they serve here.
The high ceiling makes this place has a very industrial feel to it.
Started off our Sunday brunch with Red + Green Apple Juice (S$8) and Blackforest Milkshake (S$12). Very welcoming on a hot afternoon.
Most bistros I know offer their ultimate version of a "Big Breakfast" during weekend brunch. And here, it's their The Big Brasserie Breakfast (S$24) - 2 Sunny side eggs, Back bacon, forest mushrooms, grilled cumberland sausage, roasted vine tomatoes, grilled brioche, butter and jam. The tomatoes were very sweet and juicy.
Free iced water is served here.
We also ordered their Signature Mussels and Fries (S$20 for starter pot) in Vin Blanc style (shallots, garlic, parsley, dry white wine). Mussels are air-flown from Boston Bay, Tasmania. Unfortunately, the mussles were not as good as we hoped for.
Golden fries with the mussels.
Also had the Smoked Pulled Pork Burger (S$25) served with skinny fries and homemade apple sauce. Pork was rather tender. They could have done a better job for the fries.
French Onion Soup (S$14) with thick crostini and gruyere cheese melt. Very filling, and sharing is recommended.
