Happy new year my darlings!
Culinarystorm says sorry for the slow posts these past few weeks.
There’s been a solid reason for it though – I’ve moved to Singapore!
I’m starting a new job here and it’s been quite the challenge – moving to a new country, doing interesting work I’ve not done before, and making new friends.
But the very best part is being in a place that’s full of fantastic food :)
Last weekend, some friends took me to brunch to place called Wild Honey. The bright and colourful decor, large chalkboard menu, and array of food and beverage choices will make you forget all about the 45 minute wait to get in.
Wild Honey has 2 locations in Singapore, but the one I went to was in the super pish-poshy mall, Mandarin Gallery, that’s full of designer clothes and art and a rather adorable dessert shop called Antoinette where the macarons are not bad.
I’m a sucker for the chalkboard menus at Wild Honey.
If you think eggs are magic (like me), then you must try this place. They specialise in all-day breakfasts from around the world, so you could choose from Tunisian or Spanish, Norwegian or Aussie, English or Mexican, and many more!
I bullied everyone at my table into ordering different things so I could try a little of everything.
Here’s a look at what we stuffed our faces with.
Spanish Hash- A plateful of uniformly cut cubes of spicy chorizo, corned beef, and crispy potato, topped with poached eggs doused in Hollandaise Sauce and served with giant brioche slices.
Norwegian- This delightful plate comes with creamy avocado pieces nestled in a bed of whole wheat brioche, covered with grilled asparagus, and then poached eggs that have been wrapped like a dream in Norwegian smoked salmon.
This is what happens when you cut into it.
If you’re drooling all over your keyboard, call me. We’re soulmates.
Portobello Road- A pile of baked portobello mushroom, spinach, red pepper confit and poached eggs drizzled with lemon Hollandaise on brioche.
Sweet mornings- This is what French toast should look like. Thick, golden-brown caramelized brioche. The bread was stuffed with sweet mango. YUM. And the dish also came with maple syrup, vanilla mascarpone, and a bright red berry compote. YUM YUM YUM.
I also tried the Wild honey iced tea which was, well, interesting, but too “herby” for my liking.
The Latte was clearly pretty decent, because my friend drank two. Also, so pretty!
There is also an assortment of fresh juices on offer – a breakfast necessity, no? And aren’t the straws adorable? :)
Try Wild Honey if you enjoy international all-day breakfasts, eggs, and oh ya, Hollandaise sauce.
To kick off my first post for 2014, let’s do a poll! It’s been ages right?! I know!
I love you guys! Hoping this will be a brilliant year for us all! Hugs!
