Drumplings (Revisited-Invited 4)

Bottomless brunch - yes, please! We started off our morning in Drumpling’s garden-meets-street courtyard and their lychee tea sangria - sweet tea, white wine, triple sec and lychee. Their Mimosas were also good to keep the chill away. Yum.

First up in the brunch set menu were the Peppered Pork Sliders. Bunned in grilled, mildly sweet buns, the pork was accompanied by a sunny side up egg, cucumbers and a delectable chipotle mayo. Props to Drumplings for giving an extra side of the chipotle mayo because they were amazing!

We then had the Bacon and Egg Dumplings. Thin dumpling wrappers meet scrambled eggs and bacon fillings. I personally thought the egg had a strange consistency as it was scrambled then additionally steamed, but my partner thought they were alright. Would’ve liked a little more bacon in the filling though! Before our dessert, we also had the Chili Schezhuan Calamari. The calamari was seasoned really well, although it could’ve spent a little more time in the fryer because it wasn’t very crispy. The cucumber chili salad at the bottom was a refreshing accompaniment.

Next up was the dessert - their French Toast whih consisted of Cinnamon battered baos and a chili choc ice cream. The grilled baos were pretty good. The chili choc ice cream was an unexpected twist because it wasn’t spicy at all when you first tuck in. The spice kicks in afterwards when it hits the throat!
