It’s the weekend and you just want to get away from work, assignments and crazy bosses chasing you for documents. If you need an outlet to relax and chill for a couple hours, prosecco brunches are for you.
What’s the difference between champagne and prosecco? While the former is made with grapes from the Champagne region in France, the latter is, simply put, an Italian sparkling wine.
Sweet, light and bubbly, what better way to enjoy it than with a hearty brunch to fill yourself up and be re-energised for the week to come.
Here are eight prosecco brunches that you can ganbei at while having equally good food to match!
Brunch isn’t just limited to your typical Western fare. At Kinki, enjoy the Bottomless Brunch on Saturdays featuring its extensive a la carte buffet menu as well as free flow prosecco, sochu and sake at a $35 top-up.
If that isn’t enough, Kinki boasts a spectacular view of Marina Bay Sands – the perfect backdrop for your Instagram pictures. An all-you-can-eat buffet brunch? Count me in!
Expected damage: $52++ per pax / free flow sake, sochu & prosecco, $87++ per pax
