Tossed salads and scrambled eggs

Incidentally, the title is from the theme song of an oldie but goodie tv series Frasier.

Kenneth and I love all-day breakfasts. One of the unbeatable advantages of being our own bosses is that our schedules are pretty flexible. There's something very decadent about having brunch at 10am on a weekday, accompanied by a pot of tea or steaming hot latte. It's just a lovely way to start the day.

We don't usually go anywhere fancy but during the March holidays, we decided to treat the kids to the all-day breakfast at Prive at Keppel Bay.

On weekends, this place is packed, I recommend making reservations if you don't want to be disappointed. There's an indoor restaurant and an al fresco area overlooking the bay, which is very scenic. I suggest the latter if you're here for breakfast or brunch, before it gets too warm.

You can see the Prive menu here. We have only eaten here twice and both times, we picked from the all-day breakfast menu so I can't comment on the other items.

These are the items we've tried:

Prive's Ultimate Brekkie - 2 eggs any style, bacon, sausage, mushrooms, hashbrown and toast $20. Not bad value, it's more brunch than breakfast considering the size of the portion.

Bananalicious French Toast - brioche with caramelised bananas and walnuts $12. This is very well done. The bananas and walnuts complement the french toast perfectly. If I had a complaint, it would be that the portion is too small - left me wanting more!

Eggs Royal - English muffins with smoked salmon and 2 poached eggs with Hollandaise sauce $16. This is the unanimous favourite for all four of us. The eggs are cooked just the way I like it - the yolk slightly runny but the white not weepy.


When we were there, Prive was having a DBS card promotion of 50% off the 2nd order of Eggs Royal or Eggs Benedict (only on weekdays though). If you can spare the time, it's a pretty good deal.
