Travel the world in twenty breakfasts at Wild Honey! Hidden on the third level of Mandarin Gallery in town is Wild Honey, a sweet all-day breakfast spot for hungry workers and shoppers. THE FOOD:
Before entering the much raved about Wild Honey, I did my research. There are twenty breakfasts offered and each is named by its country of origin. Favourites and several mentioned must-tries are the European Eggs Benedict, Tunisian stew and Italian open-faced omelette.
Perhaps to prepare for my dream of travelling to Europe one day, I went for the European breakfast which was basically Wild Honey's version of Eggs Benedict. Two prettily poached eggs accompanied by savoury sauteed mushrooms and thin slices of prosciutto on nicely toasted brioche and the classic hollandaise sauce. Need I say more? Simple as it sounds, poached eggs are rarely done well but these are done just right at Wild Honey.
I was almost sure that I would return for the same dish when my friend's Tunisian-inspired sizzling pan of sliced chorizo sausage, red pepper, onion and tomatoes stew topped with two sunny side-ups came – and changed my mind. The flavourful dish, however, felt more like a brunch than pure breakfast. That's not bad a deal for hungry us.
There's also a wide selection of coffee, juice and wines as well as salads and sandwiches to round off that perfect breakfast. THE MOOD:
Upon entering the dimly-lit space on the third level of a posh Mandarin Gallery, you will notice an elegant yet laid-back feel with its old school blackboards, mismatched arm chairs and sofas by low tables. And best of all, with a good selection of international newspapers and magazines – that would cost you an arm to buy such as The New Yorker and Monocle – there, we would nominate Wild Honey as the top choice for some lazy afternoon reading.
