Spa Esprit Group has done it again with their hottest new collaboration- Open Farm Community (OFC). Teaming up with Tippling Club’s Ryan Clift and Edible Gardens’ Bjorn Low, OFC is more than just a restaurant and fancy cocktail bar. It is instead an initiative to create a sustainable farming concept which supplies the greens and exotic herbs featured in the dishes at OFC- all grown and harvested in the backyard garden of their 6,000 sq metre property.
The restaurant itself seats about 60 people with an open-concept kitchen and glass panelled floor-to-ceiling windows allowing just the right amount of sunlight to flow through. Service was great, effortlessly smooth and attentive without being overly intrusive. I do appreciate it when service staff are enthusiastic to share more about the dishes and make informative recommendations on what to order. OFC had that part covered quite well.

Just when you thought that weekend brunches were typically made for only Sundays, you could not be more mistaken. Calling all fans of Spanish cuisine, Catalunya’s Brunch with Passion is now rolling out on every Saturdays, on top of their current Sunday brunches, from 12.30pm – 3.30pm. With over 40 traditional Spanish dishes coupled with entertaining showmanship at intervals of the brunch buffet, expect a fun-filled brunch affair with family, friends and loved ones.
From the same people who brought you Lucha Loco at Duxton Hill, comes the vivacious, younger, and slightly more chipper sister outlet- Super Loco. Located at The Quayside, this restaurant and bar which prides itself for serving Mexican street food, has a bright and sunny appeal with its coloured theme of pastels and neon. From communal tables and benches to bar counter stools and regular wooden tables, the spacious open-concept diner is all about recreating the Mexican City experience for their guests.
Super Loco offers two menus- Dinner served from 5pm onwards Wednesdays to Sundays and Brunch on the weekends from 10am-3pm. Reservations are also not allowed unless you have a group of more than 8 people. After seeing all those mouthwatering pictures on Instagram, coupled with my inclination towards brunch food, I naturally gravitated towards making a trip down on a Sunday to try their newly launched weekend brunch menu.
With a land scarce city like Singapore, parking lots are often a nightmare to find. Free parking is even more so a luxury and possibly a rare commodity. Still, we managed to rummage for 15 places in Singapore with free parking all day long– this list does not include the shopping malls that offer free parking during lunch hours from 12-2pm. No more having to be on your guard or look out for the “summon auntie” while dining or worrying about the value your CashCard reader is going to reflect when you drive out of the carpark. Simply park the car, stay as long as you want and enjoy your meal.

W39 Bistro & Bakery first made waves when they opened early last year for being one of the few cafes in the West that offered a hearty brunch menu with local delights and decent mains for both lunch and dinner. Tucked away in the quiet West Coast neighbourhood, this cheery bright-yellow and sky-blue themed bistro, though spacious with indoor and alfresco seating, is usually always crowded. Reservations, especially for brunch which is only available on weekends and public holidays, come highly recommended.
For the drivers, there is parking available around the area if you come really early like us (we had a 9am reservation), and you might just score a parking lot right in front of the cafe (like we did). Alternatively, you can park near the Clementi Stadium which is also within walking distance.
