Happy mid week everyone! (: Hope your week is going well and you’ve been eating yummy food and your tummies have been happy! I know I have! Especially for the past six weeks back in Singapore and I’m here to share with you some of the places I’ve dined at and really really enjoyed! So I hope all of you would enjoy my posts to come and of course, I would sneak in recipe posts and Melbourne food posts in between, so don’t you worry! (:
It’s amazing how much changes there is in the span of one year! We went back and just felt like tourists. haha. One awesome thing we realised is that the brunch scene has grown heaps in Singapore and there are so many more brunch places available now! We couldn’t be happier! So for our Christmas brunch, we decided to head to Wild Honey at Scotts Square.
Address : 6 Scotts Road, Level 3
Tel : 6636 1816

Of course being Christmas morning, the place was really packed. But we were lucky enough to get seats at the communal table. And not long after, we placed our orders and our hot drinks were served. They all looked so festive with the chocolate powdered christmas trees! hehe Just put a smile on my face when they placed it on the table.
Due to the festive season, they had a couple of specials and the mr ordered one of them : New England. How beautiful is the plating? On top of their signature brioche is two fresh jumbo crab cakes with red pepper, fresh corn. Topped with perfectly poached eggs, citrus hollandaise sauce and black Avruga caviar. This was one explosive dish! Everything just went so well with each other. We loved it and just couldn’t get enough and savoured every bite!
And here’s the money shot! (: Just perfect with the huge chunks of crab meat. Noms! hehe
My mum-in-law and sister-in-law ordered the English. One of the signature brunch dishes that’s on their menu. Scrambled eggs, back bacon, Cumberland pork sausage, sauteed mushrooms, baked beans, potatoes and grilled vine potatoes with their signature brioche. The brioche is seriously something I could eat all day! So soft with a hint of sweet with every bite.
My father-in-law ordered another signature : Tunisian. It’s similar to baked eggs, with spicy shakshouka (don’t you love saying it? haha), chorizo sausage, the brioche and a side of Israeli salad. I didn’t get to try it, but he really enjoyed it (:
I ordered the one thing that caught my eye from the moment I browsed the menu : Boulevard St Michel ! It consisted of a savoury french toast with double baked cheese & spinach souffle, parmesan crumbed poached egg, slow roasted vine tomatoes, grilled bacon and spicy tomato chutney. This was SO YUM! I made sure I took small bites so that it would last for a longer time! hehe The cheese souffle was light and you know what’s better?
Poached eggs that were crumbed and still had a perfectly runny yolk – liquid gold ! It always amazes me how a poached egg crumbed and fried and still have a liquid-y centre. Definitely something I would love to try at home one day. haha.
So if you’re around Orchard Road in Singapore and you’re thinking of having some brunch, head to Wild Honey and give it a go! We were all filled to the brim as the portions were quite huge and definitely walked out with happy bellies! (:
