Chef Eric Neo, Singapore’s first Nordic-Asia Culinary Ambassador appointed in 2018 launches a Sunday Champagne Brunch featuring Nordic cuisine at Intercontinental Singapore's Ash & Elm

The brunch spread is inspired by the culinary philosophy from the wintery Northern Europe regions, emphasizing locality and tradition.

Highlights from the menu include not just classic Nordic dishes but also the finest produce flown in exclusively from Iceland, Sweden, Finland and Norway as a result of collaborations between the food and culinary institutions of these regions.

A selection of Nordic Cheeses from Andre Farm, Jukolan Juusto and Farm House include the Andre Grand, Andre Excellent, Aito Cheddar, Brie de Meaux, Fourme D'ambert, Comte with Crackers, Lavosh, Fruit Paste and Dried Fruits.

The wood fired pizza at Ash & Elm features a Blood Sausage & Cheese Pizza selection and the Seafood extravaganza entices guests to sample free-flow Chilled Tiger Prawns, Black Mussels, Boston Lobster, Clams, Whelks, Scallop, Finnish Crayfish, Sweden Oysters on Ice all available with with accompanying Condiments and Sauces.

“The Nordic region is renowned for its fresh locally grown ingredients and preservation techniques. However, Nordic cuisine is still relatively unknown in Singapore – to date we have not seen many products nor dishes from the likes of Finland and Iceland, served on our tables or sold in stores. I believe more can be done to bring awareness to this exquisite cuisine, and enhance food diversity in Singapore at the same time”, says Chef Eric, who is also the President of Singapore Chef Association.

The Caviar & Roe display takes this brunch to an indulgent level offering Queen Kaluga Caviar, Ikura, Avruga, Wasabi Tobiko, Ebiko with Condiments and Blinis.

Expect a showcase of crowd favorites at Ash & Elm such as creamy langoustine soup, pan-seared Norwegian salmon with lemon-herb and butter sauce, and succulent beef wellington. Something, literally for every taste and every Palate

Those with a sweet tooth will not be disappointed by the variety of desserts such as Rhubarb Cake, Summer Berries Pie and Lingonberry Cream Brulee. Complement brunch with a handcrafted gin cocktail, Aurora, inspired by the Northern lights. Concocted using Metsis Gin, specially imported from Estonia for the brunch, it is available for top-up at $15 nett per glass.

The experience is further elevated with unlimited luscious caviar, premium seafood on ice, succulent roasts and Taittinger Brut Champagne.

  • SG$$148 Includes unlimited Taittinger Champagne, cocktails, house wines, beers, soft drinks and juices.
  • SG$$98 Includes unlimited cocktails, soft drinks and juices.
  • SG$48 Includes unlimited soft drinks and juices.

All prices quoted are subject to 10% service charge and prevailing government taxes will be charged.

If you want to try a different Champagne brunch, then Ash & Elm located at Intercontinental Singapore has a little bit of a twist to the normal Sunday brunches. This incarnation : the Nordic Theme" is only available until Sunday 17 November so It’s not to be missed. We’ve all been to countless brunches and to tell the truth they are very similar, but this was a pleasant surprise and a really nice change from the same old, same old... A Nordic theme is full of comfort, feel-good food from several Nordic regions. Hearty casseroles, cabbage, meatballs and don’t forget the mashed potato.... that won me over. The mashed potato was... amazing, if you are European and miss your spuds this is a must, you must try for yourself - words are not enough! They also had an enormous array of fresh seafood and a delightful and indulgent...caviar station. What I liked about the presentation of the food was there wasn’t load of different stations. Two main dishes beef wellington and a cod dish, which were divine and then lots of smaller dishes. More quality over quantity. The dessert section was stunning, I didn’t want to eat anything because they all looked so pretty, but I forced myself! Mini chocolate cakes, choux buns, rich chocolate cake, berry cheesecake, the list is endless. For those with a sweet tooth you will be in heaven. Be warned about the Estonian gin (yes they make gin and it makes a fine cocktail!) who knew! But it’s not for the faint hearted, very strong but deceivingly easy to drink. It was the little touches like the autumnal flowers and herbs, displayed around the room that gave it that cosy feel without being too over the top. The staff were excellent and very friendly, extremely attentive. And then there was the DJ. very understated throughout the brunch and as the TAITTINGER champagne flowed towards the end as the DJ knocked out some banging tunes. We all just wanted to stay and dance the afternoon away. A great way to end a brunch. full marks and congratulations to the team at Ash & Elm. We will be booking for the next Sunday Brunch incarnation which is your Christmas spread come November 24 I was told..... looking forward to visiting again....

Introducing the Nordic Sunday Champagne Brunch Ash & Elm located in InterContinental Singapore. At $ 148++ per adult this is a wallet-friendly price for the excellent array of food and drinks which includes Tattinger, cocktails, house wines, beers. The kids' menu is great for the little ones at $48 ++ per child. This very handsome Beef Wellington (pictured) has your name written all over it - for the next few sundays at least. In fact, this new Sunday Free-Flow will entertain guests for a LIMITED season including Sunday Oct 20, Oct 27, Nov 3,10 and final serving on Sunday 17 November before the Grand Christmas Buffet takes over. Highly recommended. Let's wait for key person of influence reader Emma O'Callaghan's comments on her Sunday experience. We will post on www.expatchoice.asia https://www.expatchoice.asia/eat-drink/ash-elm%E2%80%99s-nordic-sunday-champagne-brunch-has-arrived

Did a staycation over the weekend to celebrate a birthday. One word to sum up the service “impeccable”. I don't want to give you an 8/8 because I want you to continue to strive for greatness and never sit back and think you have the top service in Singapore. It's great service but always room for that little bit of improvement. It began with the receptionist who recalled and addressed me by my name the following day, to the room service staff who literally raced up to my room after I called down to make sure we had plenty of ice for the drinks. The dining service staff at Ash & Elm restaurant who made sure we had everything we wanted at the Sunday brunch were really friendly and informative. It’s services like these, attention to detail, that made our stay at the Bugis Intercontinental Singapore a wonderful experience. Thank you. we will certainly be spreading the word.
