Brunches and Lazy Afternoons

Eggs Oh Eggs! What will I do without you. Gotta say that Singapore offers a pretty great selection of restaurants that offer Brunch/ all day breakfast to satisfy my all time cravings. Eggs Benny with Hollandaise sauce done right, Smoked salmon, sauteed mushrooms, Asparagus, Eggs florentine, Brioche, Pancakes and french toast. Seriously!? Could anything be more tempting than that. Answer is no ( Maybe chocolates.. ). Anyway I'm pretty fortunate that there's a group of crazy brunch lovers who are more than happy to indulge in this eggeciting food hunt for the best eggs benedict around town. 

Wild Honey   (@ Scotts Square and Mandarin Gallery) 

Been there a couple of times the past few weeks for dinner. So happy they serve all day breakfast! It's not one of the best I've tried but it definitely passes the average eggs benny. Beautiful poached eggs with runny filling. Only disappointment was the brioche was slightly burnt and service pretty slow. But then I couldn't blame them as it gets pretty crowded during the weekends.  

European Breakfast: Poached eggs. Sauteed mushrooms, Italian Prosciutto, and hollandaise sauce on home made Brioche.  ( If smoked salmon was added to it, this will be my all time favorite egg benny combi)

Aussie Breakfast: Rib eye Steak with onions, mushrooms, fried egg and potatoes. Definitely a meaty dish. You could choose between a 120g steak or 240g steak. Wasnt that impressed by the steak but I give many thumbs up for the fresh tomatoes on the vine! 

Mexican Breakfast: Burrito with scrambled eggs, breakfast potatoes, black beans, chunky vegetable salsa, guacamole and sour cream. When the plate arrived at the table. My first comment was O-M-G. The serving or shall I say the scrambled eggs was overly generous. Overall, it was pretty decent. Can't go wrong with guacamole. haha 

 Santa Fe: Tortilla with sharp cheddar, zesty tomatoes, jalepeno, sour cream, corn, avocado and diced tomatoes. This dish was vegetarian. The salsa and jalepeno added a good kick to the dish but then again- WHERE'S THE MEAT!!. We need meat haha

Norwegian: Avocado, Grilled Asparagus, smoked salmons with poached eggs and hollandaise sauce on top of Brioche. Salmons+Runny Eggs = anytime. 

Skyve Elementary Bistro & Bar  (10 Winstedt Road, Blk E, #01-17)

We went there for a lazy afternoon tea. Skyve is well known for their Sous Vide technique of making their eggs benny and is located just next to ACS (junior) at Newton. No prize for guessing what I had- the sous vide eggs benedict. When the plate arrive, I was pretty amused by how wobbly the eggs were. We even took a video of how it wobbled uncontrollably and had a good laugh. 

This was the first time even I ate an eggs benedict with a spoon. Let's just say that the eggs were similar to those you can get at ya kun or any local coffee stall. Their hollandaise sauce was however amazing. Not too rich and it has that tangy taste to it that leaves me craving for more. But hmm Eggs + spoon = big nono for me. 

Till then Fellows. This is only the beginning :)
