Cuisine Cuisine: While the idea of an international brunch sounds great, do you always end up plating only the food from the Chinese corner? Yes? Then the Oriental Brunch at Cuisine Cuisine is where you ought to brunch next!

At Cuisine Cuisine, sparkling wines are served alongside premium teas. Dim sum is extremely personal – each family has their own repertoire that they don’t deviate from. Diners will be please to know the Oriental Brunch will give families a chance to introduce new entrants to their list given the Cantonese restaurant has several of its own creations including the mushroom and truffle dumpling, taro puff with chicken and foie gras, and steamed purple potato with lily bulbs dumpling.
