Sunday Brunch at Shelter in the Woods

Standard


Oven-baked Chorizo Eggs ($22) – Two Japanese farmhouse eggs baked with chorizo sausage, roasted baby potatoes, caramelised onions

To please brunch enthusiasts, there are a few criteria to meet. First of all, locations matter –the more inaccessible and off-the-beaten-path, the better. Somewhere with lots of natural sunlight. Next, the presentation of food has to be Instagram-worthy; egg dishes are good for some egg-cutting yolk-dripping action shots. It has to photograph well. Lastly, the menu should be diverse enough to pander to not just the eggs benedict and pancake lovers.

Brunch 😻 Loving the eggs Benedict, croque-madame, chestnut tiramisu, omg almost everything on the menu.

Shelter in the Woods puts a tick in each check box, ready to impress once again with the Sunday brunch affair, available only on Sundays from 11.30am to 2.30pm.

There’s nothing not to love about this dish; it’s a safe but sure way to start the Sunday on a good note.


“Vol-au-Vent” Chicken-Mushroom ($24)

The “Vol-au-Vent” Chicken-Mushroom is one of the star dishes that set off uhmmms and ahhhhs. Accompanying the golden-brown baked puff pastry is a medley of creamy mushroom, pan-fried chicken, smoked bacon chunks and pearl onions. This dish scores high on taste and comfort level, and its presentation highly prepossessing.

The Mediterranean spread at The Knolls reveals praise-worthy virtue –the standard of food speaks for itself. Highlights include fine-cut meats at the live station, foie gras-something-of-the-day presented on wooden boards alongside dainty savouries, freshly shucked oysters in a few varieties, and more.
