How many egg puns can you take before exiting this article in fury? Easter (Apr 1) is just around the corner, and whether you’re (still) repenting or rejoicing, there’s always cause for a damn good feast. We’ll spare you the puns this year, so you can head straight to the good stuff.
Head up to the 25th floor of Andaz Singapore for a one-day only ticketed event at Alley on 25. The champagne brunch buffet will bring together the usually separate seven dining concepts, to serve signatures from each that include baked shakshuka, prime ribeye, herb-crusted lamb rack, and Mediterranean sea bass. The $168 price tag comes with unlimited glasses of Delamotte Champagne, wines and our favorite Andaz Pale Ale. Also: chocolate fountain.
Carlton City Hotel Singapore
Is this a joke? It may be on April Fool's, but no. Carlton City is spoiling the buffet market with their $40 Easter Bouncy Bash buffet lunch at Plate. There’s fresh seafood on ice, a smoked salmon platter and duck rillettes, just for starters. For that traditional Easter Sunday fare, feast on a roast—Herb-crusted Lamb Leg, Honey-glazed Gammon Ham, and Beef Cheek and Red Wine Stew, to whet your appetite. Finish off with baked goods like the Easter Rice Cake, Hot Cross Buns and Baked Glazed Pear Tart. Get to it, people!
If you’ve never been to Hilton Singapore’s gourmet grill Opus, you might as well go during their “Egg-Citing” Easter brunch. Certainly try the prime meat cuts (US prime ribs, roasted suckling pig, herb-roasted leg of lamb) served over the open-flame charcoal grill, and the ocean-fresh premium seafood from the eight a la minute cooking stations. But if you aren’t spending most of your time in the dedicated Cheese room falling into a coma of 30 types of European cheeses and Swiss Raclette melted cheese, you’re doing it wrong. All this, and a six-meter long D9 Cakery of homemade desserts, for $108.
When it comes to grandiose buffets, Marriott Cafe at Singapore Marriott Tang Plaza Hotel really outshines; and they're making no exception this Easter. For only one day (starts from $88 per person), the team will present a wonderland of more than 70 Western and Asian dishes such as the seared duck foie gras with red onion marmalade and roast prime rib of beef, as well as saccharine-filled Easter delights. You can also expect premium treasures of the sea such as snow crab legs, Boston lobsters, yellow fin tuna, as well as fresh and cured seafood dishes like the herb & pepper marinated salmon and baked mussel marinara.

Le Meridien Singapore Sentosa
Calling all beach bunnies—Le Meridien Singapore Sentosa wants to spoil you silly with a brunch on the beach. For $88, you’ll get to feast on deviled eggs, roasted chicken, spiced hot cross buns, brie and Camembert cheese. Even sweeter is the dessert buffet, featuring elaborate treats like Spiced Pear and Summer Berry Crumble, Sakura Cremeux with Cherry Compote, Maple Candied Walnut Financiers and Matcha-infused Choux Puffs. May your mouth be as full with sugar as they are with these names.
Mandarin Oriental’s Melt Cafe keeps things simple and straightforward with a buffet of familiar favorites—from slow-roasted beef to comforting shepherd’s pie. While the brats (yours or the patrons’ around you) are off occupied with the Easter bunny mascot and an egg hunt, load up on freshly baked waffles, macarons, hot cross buns and the chocolate fountain at the dessert counter. The brunch is tagged at $148; add $50 for free-flow Ruinart Champagne, wines, beers and selected cocktails.
Marina Bay Sands
There’s a whole host of Easter promotions going on at Marina Bay Sands’ extensive dining portfolio this Apr 1, but we’re making a beeline for The Bird Southern Table & Bar. Why? All-you-can-eat fried chicken—specifically the restaurant’s signature 100-year-old recipe Lewellyn’s Fine Fried Chicken, for the unbelievable price of $28 per person. It’s an Easter miracle.
Eat your heart out at one of Singapore's hottest spots for brunch and desserts this Easter. It's the only time of the year you'll get to order endless plates of The Marmalade Pantry Novena's signature dishes like their spicy crabmeat pasta, truffle field mushroom risotto, Marmalade French toast and more from the special, one-day-only a la carte buffet brunch menu (from $48 per adult). It also comes with cute Easter-themed desserts like bunny-shaped macarons, carrot-shaped cupcakes and more for anyone with a sweet tooth. Confirm your reservation by Mar 25 and enjoy 15% off your total bill when you pay with Mastercard.

Free-flow oysters sounds like the perfect way to celebrate the resurrection of Jesus;, but in all non-blasphemous seriousness, if you’re looking for a hearty Easter brunch without breaking the bank, Porta’s the place to be. The Funny Bunny Easter Brunch is just $38, and entitles you to unlimited stops at the gourmet Oyster Bar of Fine de Claire oysters from France—as well as salads, sides, appetizers and desserts. If you want a main, Porta offers an a la carte brunch menu that includes Eggs Benedict and Avocado Toast. Even better: a prosecco promotion gets you your first glass of prosecco at $10 and each additional glass at $2 less—until it counts down to $0, after which it’s free-flow on the house.
Royal Plaza on Scotts
Royal Plaza’s buffet restaurant Carousel is celebrating with a buffet lunch spread and free-flow champagne. Think traditional Easter favorites like oven-roasted whole baby lamb, hot cross bombs and even colorful boiled eggs; dessert is all about carrot cake with cheese frosting and chocolate orange tarts. $68 gets you entry, and an extra $40 per person entitles you to free-flow Duval-Leroy champagne.
If you’re in the mood for grill this Easter, Sear by Hidden Door Concepts should please with its fine cuts cooked over Pira Charcoal grill. But meat aside, it’s the live stations that are worth the $68 (early bird) price tag—a made-to-order egg station to satisfy all your Easter egg cravings, plus a made-to-order bruschetta bar with options ranging from classic marinated tomato and basil to indulgent bites of foie gras, truffle cream cheese and plum chutney. From 12-3:30pm, enjoy free-flow of prosecco, house pour red and white wines, beer, soft drinks and juices—for an additional $40.
The Ritz-Carlton, Millennia Singapore
It’s easy to just throw a promotion and call it Easter-themed, but Colony at The Ritz-Carlton is going all out with its themed buffets and extravagant decorations once more. This time, it’s a Charlie and the Chocolate Factory-themed vintage champagne brunch—food-wise, there’s gold braid eggs with avruga caviar, shaved parma ham infused with truffle, Easter pie with black forest ham and ricotta, and lots of chocolate Easter eggs. Five lucky diners will even find a “Golden Ticket” hidden in their Easter chocolate bar, and stand a chance to win prizes that range from a staycation in the Deluxe Marina room to a 90-minute massage at the hotel spa. Of course, that means bookings aren’t cheap; prices start from $228 per head (including unlimited pours of Moet and Chandon Grand Vintage Blanc 2008, Rose 2008 and house pour red and white wines).
The White Rabbit
Easter Sunday brunch at The White Rabbit is practically a institution by now. For the annual buffet, look forward to a carving station featuring Shorthorn Cote de Boeuf, a seafood bar of Maine Lobster and Sakoshi Oysters, roasts, and eggs any style, among other highlights. First seating is $108 per person (from 10am) and includes a glass of Boizel Champagne or a Hendrick’s G&T.
