An Extravagant Sunday Brunch at The Knolls, Capella Singapore

It must be said. There is no place in Singapore quite like the Capella, an expanse of greenery so lush it sends you straight to Bali. Overlooking the grounds are cascading pools of crystal clear waters resembling fields of rice paddy, peacocks wandering freely; feathers brimming with hues of emerald green and deep sea blue.

There is much to be appreciated, and we pause for a moment to take it all in – the fresh air; crisp as the head of young lettuce, skies as clear as daylight, the essence of serenity. A weaving stairwell delivers you into The Knolls. This is where the indulgence will begin.

On Sundays, brunch at the Capella is an extravagant affair. Freshly baked bread and pastries, international seafood and barbecue stations dominate the space, a live Cuban band carts around to take requests, belting out songs like Amor Verdadero and Tu Voz that make you want to get out of your seat and do the salsa.

Begin with freshly shucked oysters – we prefer them Irish – and a glass of vintage Tattinger, or warm the stomach with breads: mushroom quiche, ham and cheese croissant, onion cheese tart, pretzel rolls, sweet corn cheese bread and the like, before filling up at the live barbecue stations.

Skewers of meat find their way into the company of peppers and onions, happily sizzling atop the grill, sweet aromas of juicy meat making its way around, a come-hither for those looking to be well fed.

At the sweet end of the meal, dessert is extreme decadence – there is ganache, puddings, cakes and tarts, peppered with edible flowers, gold foil and such. As we said, brunch at the Capella is an extravagant affair.
