Boomerang Brunch

Went to Boomerang after a failed attempt to try Epicurious' brunch. Boomerang is an Australian (prob Sydney? at least, its menu has name of places in Sydney) pub/bar which becomes a charming riverside brunch place on weekends.
Corn Cakes ($14++)
Bacon avocado roma tomatoes rocket
Really nothing fantastic about this. Streaky bacon, grilled plump and juicy roma tomatoes and corn cakes, which were more like pancakes, with some herbs and a few bits of corn. Though they did give me a whole half an avocado (which I really like!)
I thought that it would have been much nicer if this came with scrambled eggs. They were kind enough to give me some additional hollandaise sauce, because I really felt that the corn cakes were too dry when eaten by itself, especially since the salad had vinegrette dressing, which really didn't go well with the corn cakes.
Buttermilk Pancakes ($12++)
With maple syrup caramelized banana and natural yoghrt
Shouldn't have ordered this cos the pancake base was essentially the same base as my corn cakes. They were pretty stingy on the yogurt cos there was only a small blob for 3 pancakes, and the caramelized banana was more like banana puree, and also in a painfully small amount. The pancakes themselves were thick and fluffy, but I thought it would have been much better if they had been more generous with the yoghurt and the banana.
Granola Muslei ($10)
Banana, strawberries natural yoghrt

Tea ($5)

Overall, the place is really nice - by Singapore River, and the restaurant is bright and airy. It's mostly patronized by the expats - so a plus point is that their service is pretty good and efficient. Though the food's nothing to rave about.
