In bright and modern surroundings with picturesque Marina views, Accents' brunch delivers on Friday fun while boasting a wide variety of cuisines.
Popular with large groups – Accents mainly attracts parties, though families are still welcome – it's wise to book this one in advance.
Live cooking stations feature curries, noodles and dim sum, as well as made-to-order salads.
There's also a pasta station (farfalle, linguine; the choice is yours) plus oven-fired pizzas, fresh oysters and prawns and a traditional roast dinner.
Try the freshly cooked seafood, available from the live grill, which includes prawns, fish and squid. We order a large plate and within ten minutes we have plenty to share brought to the table.
Having visited this brunch before, however, we are disappointed by a lack of sushi on this occasion, a highlight of our previous experience.
The dessert station offers something fun, with liquid nitrogen items for added theatre. Although, the range of puddings is lacking in variety and seems like more of an afterthought.
There's a good selection of drinks on offer for the house package, as well as a number of stations serving a variety of mixed drinks. However, double-check your package, as some confusion from the staff between house, sparkling and bubbly can lead to some surprises when the bill arrives.
The "Funusual" brunch lives up to its name: it's perfect for those looking to party.
