When Mandarin Gallery first opened their doors a few years ago, I remember being one of the first few customers of Wild Honey and somewhat surprised that they only served all-day breakfast sets. I thought they were very brave to be so focused on the type of food they wanted to offer. I recalled having a Japanese set breakfast then and was impressed by its presentation and taste. It was pretty good. However, I haven’t been back since.
I’m glad the concept took off well and Wild Honey already has their second outlet in Scotts Square. More importantly, they have a good following of regulars that almost guarantees a full-house on weekends.
I finally visited Wild Honey for my second time and I was blown away by how extensive their menu had grown. I chose the Norwegian Benedict (S$26) which consisted of grilled asparagus, avocado and poached egg, wrapped with smoked salmon and topped with Hollandaise sauce and salmon pearls, on top a whole wheat brioche. That’s quite a mouthful, literally. The asparagus and avocado gave it a good bite and also balanced the saltiness of the salmon and salmon pearls, as well as the tangy Hollandaise sauce.
My overseas friend had the Scandinavian set (S$26) which consisted of a grilled salmon fillet on top crisp potato rosti and grilled asparagus, drizzled with Hollandaise sauce. Check out the blood red tomatoes! The dish looked great and my friend was all thumbs up for it.
