Food and drink
1 TwentySix offers gastro bites and European fare with an Asian touch. My mum had the shell fish cabonara, which was rich and creamy, but not too heavy. While I opted for the baby snapper fillet cooked crispy with minted pea cream and fries. My partner had the 126 burger, a monstrous-sized meal with a juicy meat patty. Save room for dessert, the Valhrona dark and white chocolate fondant with coconut praline ice-cream is a sensation.
Modern furniture and candle lit tables situated in a tropical garden looking out over the seafront. There’s a relaxed and chilled atmosphere, especially with the live band in the evenings.
It was a busy Friday night and we did have trouble getting hold of a waiter to start with, but overall the service was of a good standard.
On the east coast parkway, near the Big Splash playground, this is perfect weekend brunch location overlooking the sea and bay front area. Best take a taxi as there isn’t an MRT station in site.
Mains are roughly $30-50, so a little on the pricey side. There’s also a communal set menu priced at $70++ per person, featuring a large variety of seafood and meat dishes to share, ideal for large groups. The brunch menu is a little cheaper.
