Brunch Review: South Union Park at 101 Jln Kembangan, Singapore 419139

I seldom travel to the east, but one of my BFFs has moved there with her family so I decided to head down and check out a cafe there with her and make it an adventure! The bistro cafe in question's called South Union Park, located at this row of shophouses at Jalan Kembangan. It was a pleasant Saturday morning if I didn't recall wrongly, and the place was moderately crowded when we started, and got progressively more packed.  

Here's the interior. Super duper functional, as you can see. The good thing is that ventilation's quite alright inside so there's not much of a food smell. 

Here's on their framed menu of some specials they were offering. Since we were there for brunch, we decided to look at their breakfast items instead.

For example, there's this. Note the price... (sorry but I find it extremely hard to swallow)

More of their breakfast items. Eggs benedict for $19? OUch.

I think their mains might be more worth it, actually!

I had the vegetarian Avo Mato Bruschetta (S$17) which was alright, but pretty odd to be paired with fries. The tomatoes as you can see are oiled, rather juicy and quite generous. I was super full by the end of it, but not blown away by the elements, gastronomically. I guess we are really just paying for someone to take the effort to assemble all these ingredients together on a plate, and clean up afterwards.  3/5

My friend's duck confit hash (S$21) was also a substantial plate, tasty but again not really very stellar. But I guess their combinations work to attract the family and friends crowd. 3/5

Overall a nice spot for brunch if you live in the East. Food's decent, but service can be a bit slow especially when the big crowds some in during weekend, so anticipate that. Also be prepared to pay slightly higher than normal prices for average brunch items.
