It strives to offer familiar brunch favourites but in a fun and different way.
When it comes to their ingredients, the VCR team takes no shortcuts and insists on making everything they possibly can in-house from scratch.

VCR’s menu covers an extensive range of sweet and savoury dishes
Their notable version of the Surf n Turf is the best way to start any morning!
It features some house-cured salmon and creamy scrambled eggs on their house-made flaxseed sourdough toast, which is then topped with Parmigiano-Reggiano, sprinkles of chilli flakes and a dash of truffle oil.
For something heartier, opt for their best-selling Soft Shell Crab Burger. It’s a representation of a real-life Krabby Patty!
The combination of a deep-fried soft shell crab with a furikake sunny-side-up egg and house-made tartar sauce is a match made in brunch heaven!
The simple yet genius move of adding onion jam and pickled kyuri (cucumber) to cut through the fat is what makes the dish sinfully delicious and addicting.
The Unagi Affair is another popular menu item.
I mean, how can you resist a generous portion of locally-farmed Unagi, quick-pickled kyuri and Ni-Tamago tucked in between a homemade croissant. It’s also served with a side of fresh honey lemon vinaigrette salad.
Love a good fluffy French toast?
VCR innovates this humble dish by combining it with a raspberry compote, mocha sauce, chocolate biscuit crumble, and a spoon of no-churn espresso ice cream.
The Pennsylvania’s Soul is also a huge guilty pleasure. It comprises of a habanero buttermilk-coated fried chicken served atop a fluffy potato waffle and topped with Thai basil, sriracha mayo, pomegranates and a house-made chrysanthemum syrup.
All the components in this dish brings about a good balance of savoury, sweet, spiciness and sourness.
For a lighter dish, opt for their VCR house salad or house-made crunchy granola with oolong peach-infused soy milk.
Here are a few other unmissable brunch items:
- VCR Big Breakfast
- Turkish Style Eggs
- Potato Waffle
- Avocado Toast
Whether it’s a unique twist on a common brunch item or a consistently good cup of coffee, VCR definitely measures up to its high expectations.
