Binge - Solace on Sunday

‘Tis the last Sunday of the June holidays. It’s not just the kids who go back to school but moms who have to do the endless school runs again. Hands up, all those who have to wake up at 6am next week to bring the kids to school! It’s goodbye to weekday sleep-ins for the next 10 weeks. I feel it keenly, don’t you? What to do, Sweeties?! Turn to Champers and good food, of course. Here’s where we can go to for solace and healing.

Global Kitchen Sunday Brunch
Always a good place for languid eating, they’ve added some new items to their big buffet offerings to keep things exciting. Over 100 yummy selections including 10 ‘stations’ such as oysters (from France & Canada) including au naturel, shooters, crispy oyster wrapped with bacon, oyster carpaccio, etc. Vol Au Vents of duck confit with foie gras, chicken ragout with mushrooms, ham and cheese; pasta, crepes, pancakes and soufflés, a cheese table, and a larger-than-life dessert section – just please please don’t eat the decoration. (Embarrassingly, Madam made that mistake and suffice to say, it was baaaad!) The seafood here is always good, including the smoked fish section and the briny fresh crabs. Plenty of kid-friendly foods, too, and activities like magic shows and crafts to keep them suitably occupied.
I like the pricing, too – good value for a feast for Gargantua. $98 per adult (the works with Champagne); $88++ per adult (no bubbles) and $78 ++ (alas, no alky). Children 6-12 years are charged a dollar for each year of age. Sundays only (12 pm – 3pm).

Laid back at Kha

If one doesn’t want to imbulge too much, Kha’s formula for feeding is unique. $50++ per person gets you four dishes (per table though) which you choose from a fairly decent menu and free flow drinks including wine, Singha beers and mocktail. Here’s some of the selections available on the menu: spicy shredded duck salad with green mango, chiili, thai herbs, toasted rice and chilli lime dressing; spicy pomelo salad with prawns, chicken, roasted coconut, chilli jam; phad thai; pork spareribs in yellow curry; vanilla bean custard with spiced thai basil syrup and young coconut. The food is good here, the setting in Hort Park is pretty. ‘Sundays at Kha’ is available from Sundays to Thursday, for lunch (11am - 3pm) and dinner (6pm-10pm).

Wine & Cheese at Four Seasons
Call it afternoon tea or extended pre-dinner drinks, the offering at The Bar and Alfresco at Four Seasons is tasteful, luxurious nibbling without going over the top. Sumptuous seasonal cheeses, luscious desserts like chocolate caramel tart and hazelnut royaltine, paired with unlimited servings of red, white and sparking wines. How gorgeous does that sound? $48++ is good deal for three hours of luxe, and a stylish way to banish the Monday blues. Sundays 5pm – 8pm.
