If, like us, you relish at the thought of scrambled eggs, syrup-glazed pancakes and possibly anything brunch food related then you’ll know the pains that comes with brunch menus. Often times, the food doesn’t quite stray far from the typical American or British inspired fare and after a while, it becomes well, boring.
Fortunately for us, MEDZS has introduced its brand new weekend brunch menu that features brunch food from Mediterranean countries all over.
We take a look at some of the dishes being served and let you know what we love most about them:
Bouncy Benedict at $14.90. (Photo credit: MEDZS).
What is brunch without eggs benedict? A staple in brunch menus, a good ol’benny is nothing without its magical Hollandaise sauce, of which MEDZS was able to do really well.
We love how the Hollandaise sauce was a a good mix of citrusy (thanks to the lemon juice) and creamy. What’s more, this dish comes with a serving of potato rosti and mesclun greens, pretty balanced we must say.
However, if we had a gripe, it would be that the golden yolk of the egg was overcooked and came out completely solid.
Stacked Brunch Torte at $14.90. (Photo credit: MEDZS).
Much like a sandwich, the Stacked Brunch Torte is basically a smorgasbord of ingredients such as cheese, eggs, ham and spinach,tucked under layers of flaky pastry.
Although slightly difficult to eat (we recommend going layer by layer), the result is like having a potpourri of flavours in your mouth.
Spicy Chicken Tagine for $13.90. (Photo credit: MEDZS).
Ah, finally something for the meat lovers out there.
Cooked in a traditional tagine, this aromatic dish basically burst with flavours. We really couldn’t get enough of the rich mixture of tomatoes and capsicums that we had to lap it all up with the potato pancakes that came with the dish. We also love how the chicken wasn’t dry and felt really tender.
However, after eating so many dishes with eggs in it, we couldn’t help but felt sick of the hardboiled eggs in this dish.

Another brunch food staple, the dessert pancakes from MEDZS comes with a choice of maple syrup, vanilla, mango or strawberry sauce and is served with fresh berries.
As delicious as it sounds, we recommend skipping this and saving room for other more exotic menu offers like the Egg-crowned Lamb Shashouka and Poseidon Wrap. Definitely more filling and a better bang for your buck.
