Tried and Tasted: What's Really Good On The Menu

Having worked at Wild Honey for 3 years, I've gotten to try everything on the menu and I can safely say that sometimes, what restaurants promote as their specialties aren’t really the best options. At Wild Honey, there are many hidden gems that deserve a second glance - much more than just poached eggs and the standard scrambled.

The most popular English breakfast for example is the simplest and fastest to make - just a combination of single items, whereas the European poached eggs are almost a no-brainer for a brunch restaurant. I’ve always found it sad when people order the less appetizing dishes, or settle for the “most popular” while overlooking the true gems in the menu. These really special ones take far more effort and the precision and care taken into crafting them can be felt in its artistic presentation and the all-important taste.

My personal favourites are the ‘I love New York’ - creamy rich scrambled eggs combined with savoury smoked salmon and sturgeon; the Boulevard St Michel - a savoury french toast with sweet tomato chutney and a deep fried cheese-crumbed poached egg -yes, a deep fried poached egg that is still miraculously runny!

My newest favourite is the new Delancey, a pastrami eggs benedict made with beef that is smoked and cured with a deep peppery flavour. Of all dishes, the pastrami is the most unique and delicately prepared if you’re looking for an unconventional meat flavour.

For dessert, the Brittany, a panettone french toast drizzled with a rich salted caramel sauce and sweet baby bananas is easily the best option over all the cake and brownie options.

While prices can be rather steep, the unique taste, the generous portion size and the beautiful presentation and ambience Wild Honey provides is surely worth the many dollar signs. Just make sure to make a reservation before dining, or go around 3pm - 6pm if you’d like to enjoy your meal over languid conversation without being subject to the ninety minutes peak seating allowance.

Everyone deserves a brunch treat sometimes

Various cafes serving up brunch have worked up a craze in the local food scene, only to die down some time after. Wild Honey, on the other hand, is definitely a mainstay and tops my list of good brunches.

The branch at Mandarin Gallery has comfy sofa seats that add to the laid back brunch vibe, but you might want to make a reservation for that. Otherwise, there is also a big, long communal table that is great for bigger groups.

My (and many others') personal favourite is the European breakfast - the queen of all eggs benedicts. Perfectly poached eggs perched on mushrooms that add a nutty flavour to the dish, wrapped in gloriously savoury Italian proscuitto ham, sitting atop slices of brioche; all of this brought together by the creamy hollandaise sauce. The one time I managed to resist the cosmic force drawing me to order myself a European breakfast, I got the Tunisian instead - basically shakshuka - tangy and moreish, and also an absolute treat. The juices - the grapefruit juice in particular - are fresh and taste healthy. I'm not a coffee person, but my friends who've tried their coffees were really impressed.

Granted, it is rather pricey for a regular brunch, but worth every penny in my opinion. Also, all day breakfast? I'm down.

So fancy

I'm gonna make this a short review:

- So fancy it has has hipster pouring out of its syrup bottles.
- The different types of brunch from all over the world really validates the restaurant's need to charge exorbitant prices, or was it the classic chalkboard that validated that....
- Cooking eggs on a cast iron pan drowning in a tangy tomato sauce? Who would have ever thought of that!?

Despite the sky-high prices, the soft music, friendly staff and yes, I admit, delicious food was had by all and it is worth coming back when you need to impress a girl really badly. If not, make at home, NTUC sells eggs, very cheap. Boiling water at home is free.

Brunch for a Munch

Waking up to a late morning and craving for that running Egg's Benedict? Looking a place with an affordable yet delicious brunch menu? Wild Honey is definitely one of my top choices!

Wild Honey offers a whole range of brunch picks that will tingle your taste buds, although I love to go for my standard European Eggs Benny, which comes with those lovely and runny poached eggs, sautéed mushrooms, Italian prosciutto and silky smooth Hollandaise sauce. This option is sure to satisfy those who are not so adventurous, yet seek a sensation of flavors exploding in their mouths. My favorite outlet is the one at Scotts Square, because of their beautiful balcony seats that give you the nice morning view of the streets. However, for those who prefer a quieter and more calming ambience, I would suggest the branch at Mandarin Gallery.

I love the variety of teas that Wild Honey serves. They serve the tea in a very fancy pot, and the brew is rather well done. Personally, I would recommend a flower-based flavor tea to go with the heavy Egg's Benedict, to balance out the flavors and help with digestion. On the other hand, you could never go wrong with French Earl Grey! All in all, Wild Honey is a place worth your money, especially when you're searching for a European-style breakfast to satisfy that hunger!

Good brekkies!

Visited once and fell in love immediately. Wild honey's decoration is that of a typical Dutch's house. A cozy set-up, yellow-warm lighting, cushions and brick walls.

There weren't a lot of options on the menu but I loved that they were all breakfast food! Best part lies in the fact that they weren't your typical kind of breakfast food. Their signature dishes are: Tunisian, the big English breakfast plate and Eggs Benedict!

I tried both the Tunisian (sizzling pan of tomatoes, onion, red pepper and chili, accompanied with fat toasts) and the Eggs Benedict! Love both renditions but especially the Tunisian. It's ingredients are tasty and the gravy goes well with the toasts as a dip!

The atmosphere and waiters were very pleasant as well, make dining at Wild Honey a homey affair

Nice, but pricey

Headed to Wild Honey at Orchard Central awhile ago to join in the hype. I thought that the ambience was awesome, but it could be nothing more than an overrated fad.

Wild honey specializes in breakfasts from around the world and one of the highly raved options is Eggs Benedict. Gave it a shot and thought that it was okay, as with most Eggs Benedicts that costs $20 for just 2 of them.

Overall, it was a good experience but I'll probably not head there again because the queue was honestly long and the food wasn't terrific. :/

Best breakfasts I've ever had!

I just visited the Wild Honey branch at Scott's Square recently. The ambience was breathtaking; unique, warm and cosy, with comfy sofa seats and the quaint décor setting itself apart from typical cafes/restaurants. My friends and I spent a good half-hour trying to decide which breakfast to order, as every single one sounded great!

My Norwegian breakfast consisted of a huge portion of beautifully plated poached eggs, hollandaise, salmon, and greens on toast ($24++). The asparagus and avocado were uncommon additions to an otherwise classic salmon-and-eggs combination, and the hollandaise sauce was smooth and savoury, yet not too creamy or overpowering. Overall, I thought the various components of the dish complemented the others to perfection, such that it tasted simply fantastic as a whole!

Unfortunately, the prices are rather steep, so while I loved the food and ambience, it will be awhile before my next visit.

Nice ambience

I love chilling out at Wild Honey with a few friends. It has a nice ambience and they serve all-day breakfast. I find the portion quite huge, so we will usually share the food. I love the English Breakfast, the Eggs Benedict and Sweet Morning. Sweet Morning is fluffy toast served with blueberry and maple sauce.

However, it's a bit pricey, but for the ambience and the food, I think it's worth it!

My perfect kind of breakfast

Wild Honey is, hands-down, one of my favourite all-day breakfast places in Singapore. The ambience also makes it a perfect place for a nice romantic date, or to chill and catch up with friends, or even a family breakfast!

My favourite would be the Sweet Morning, thick french toast stuffed with grilled mango served with berry compote and vanilla mascarpone. The mascarpone is light, sweet and very fragrant, complements the french toast really well! Trust me, this is one of the best french toasts I've ever had.

For a savoury option, the Norwegian or European (eggs benedict - with smoked salmon or proscuitto) will not disappoint. The poached eggs are always done to perfection as well as every other element on the plate. From the brioche to the hollandaise to the sautéed mushrooms, Wild Honey always serves consistently good quality food. I also love how generous the portions are - definitely worth the price for me!

One thing though is that the branch at Mandarin Gallery does not accept reservations, and they will only seat you if all members are present. But for me, I'd go back to Wild Honey any day for its excellent food! I give it two big fat thumbs up!

Nice ambience

Went with a few friends to try out their allday breakfast menu.

Their food was ok, but I liked their coffee, I had an iced mocha. The food was a little pricey for the portion served. Overall would come back again for the ambience.
