Perched 100 metres up on Singapore’s latest 51-storey skyscraper CapitaSpring (a new high-rise icon in the central business district), Sol & Luna is a Latin-European bistro nestled within the building’s 43-000 sq-ft Green Oasis, a unique sanctuary-in-the-sky of lush greenery. Indeed, a sanctuary as I do foresee myself heading back often to escape the busy life in the city.

From morning to night, Sol & Luna offers an all-day menu showcasing four cuisines of Italy, France, Portugal and Spain. We visited on a Saturday morning for brunch.

Sol & Luna 01
We dove right into a sumptuous Italian-style breakfast featuring Salsiccia sausage, crispy guanciale (bacon), grilled Roma tomato, sautéed portobello mushroom, avocado grilled over lava stone, toasted sourdough and eggs (poached, sunny side up or scrambled). 
Sol & Luna 02
Another brunch item that we tried was the Croque Monsieur Sourdough ($18).  Sourdough bread is layered with Jambon ham, Gruyere cheese, Parmasan cheese and béchamel.  Get this if you are a fan of cheese. 
Sol & Luna 03
As an appetiser, we had the Grilled Tomino Cheese ($22).  Tomino cheese is wrapped in parma ham, then seared on a plancha and finished in the wood fired oven.  Acacia honey is then drizzled and freshly cracked black pepper added as finishing touches. 
Sol & Luna 04
Sol & Lunas Italian side is also showcased through its pastas.  We tried the House Made Spaghetti ‘Aglio Olio’ ($22) with a touch of butter that helps to emulsify the “aglio olio” sauce but not leaving a pool of residual oil.  Instead, it helps to coat the pasta evenly with sliced roasted garlic, italian parsley, chilli padi and stock.  We wished that there was a little more stock for a stronger flavour. 
sol & luna 6
I love the “Apple Pie Croissant” ($10) and will be back just to have this delectable pastry again.  Featuring apple confit in sugar, vanilla and cinnamon, creme patisserie is spread onto a halved buttered croissant.  Did anyone say sugar, spice, anything nice? 
Sol & Luna 05
Another dessert that I recommend is also the Chestnut Mandarin Mont Blanc ($13).  A contemporary interpretation of a classic tart, mandarin jelly is added for a refreshing note and yet complementing the rich, sweetened chestnut purée. 

Budget per person: $25 – 35
