Singapore: Brunch on Dempsey Road

Last weekend we took a quick trip to Singapore for various reasons, including seeing and experiencing things we can’t easily find in Jakarta. Although we have Koi Kafe to hold us over at home, one of the things on our to do list was a nice brunch. With Cynthia’s life-long friend, Tania, as our guide we headed to the inner-city oasis, Dempsey Road. Our brunch at Jones the Grocer was a beautiful but simple combination of fresh, high quality ingredients. Although the meal left a bit to be desired, the casual gourmet atmosphere kept us at our table for almost 2 hours. Afterwards we strolled around the Dempsey Hill complex to find several other restaurants, shops, and a couple galleries. Camp, a restaurant/ bar with creatively themed private rooms such as the “Kubrick” room was another great find. On our way back down Dempsey Rd. we stopped by the mid-century styled PS. Café to enjoy a quick drink on their deck, and the view overlooking a shady hillside and lush trees.
