Hummerstons Restaurant

After some entries of food from US, let me abruptly switch over to the local SG scene, because I just went to this awesome brunch place over the weekend, and I would like to share a bit on that.

One of my friend, Adam is relocating to Melbourne real soon (like tomorrow), and so we met up for brunch on Sunday. I had the Herculean task of deciding on the location, and after a struggle between a few good brunch places, I settled for Hummerstons at Robertson Walk for a couple of reasons.

  1. It’s opened by the previous executive chef of PS Cafe, ergo, decent food definitely, and of course, a huge vase of flowers ala PS Cafe style
  2. I like the deco from what I saw online; vintage chairs and a rather industrial kinda feel to the place
  3. Location. Adam wanted to have coffee after brunch at Toby’s Estate, which was at Rodyk St. So I was looking for some place within walking distance (although in the end we drove there, LOL)

The last reason had the most extensive clout, btw. Location, location!

Well, it turned out to be a good decision because we all loved the place and the food was good. It’s on the second level of Robertson Walk, so it’s quiet and conducive for chatting. What I appreciated most was the space utilization; Hummerstons is spacious but they did not try to cramp too many tables in it, and so one doesn’t feel like their conversation is being broadcasted to their neighbours. And it’s not one of those sound trapping spaces where you gotta compete with others to be heard. It’s really just right for a lazy brunch to read or to converse. Food-wise, we all had differing opinions on the taste but we generally enjoyed the meal. There were 4 of us, so this is one of the rare chances I get to take photos of so many dishes. πŸ™‚

The food is more than decent, although the carbonara was a little dry and seemed more like an aglio olio dish, rather than creamy carbonara. That was the only gripe we had. Other than that, everything else was good. I will definitely take T here when he’s back, and that’s a good testimonial for the place, coming from me!
