Living anywhere in Singapore ensures you have lots of great places to eat at right across the island whatever you are in the mood for, sometimes though it's nice to stay closer to home. That's what we do quite a lot and one place close to us that has fast become a firm favourite is Lower East Side on East Coast Road.
Lower East Side is a relaxed Mexican inspired restaurant perfect for drinks and food. It's somewhere we'll often go to in the evening or at weekends as it so close to us and never disappoints, firm favourites being the Signature Trio Tacos, a range of dishes including fish, pork belly, chorizo and vegetarian options.
On one of these very visits though we noticed a poster advertising a Sunday Mexican inspired brunch which we decided we had to try out. The brunch options are eggs Benedict tacos, churros pancakes, brunch burrito and a cheese baked half avocado. I was torn between the eggs Benedict tacos and the brunch burrito but in the end opted for the tacos. I am a fan of eggs Benedict so it seemed fitting to opt for this fun alternative. I was glad I did as they were delicious, the egg perfectly cooked and the avocado underneath (which you can just see in my photo below) complimenting it perfectly. I opted to eat them with a knife and fork though as I think you'd get in a bit of a mess trying to do so with your hands but I'd definitely have them again.

I admit to having a bit of a sweet tooth at times and despite Singapore's tropical weather still enjoy drinking hot chocolate. So when I saw this on the brunch menu I had to give it a go too. The hot chocolate had a hint of cinnamon to it which tasted lovely with the chocolate. It certainly went down very nicely whilst I was waiting for my tacos to arrive.
After our mains and a couple more drinks (by the way they have 1 for 1 offers on some drinks) we decided to get some churros to share from the regular menu to finish off our meal. These are wonderfully good with the churros being nice and sweet coupled with the slightly bitter chocolate dipping sauce.

The weekend brunch is a good option at Lower East Side and we'll definitely be back again for it soon!
Weekend brunch runs on Saturday from 11am - 4pm and Sunday from 9am - 4pm.
