Wild Honey @ Mandarin Gallery Singapore

When your mom tells you that the most important meal of the day is breakfast, you have to listen to her. Have your breakfast during breakfast, or you can have breakfast for lunch and breakfast for dinner! A place that serves breakfast all day sounds like a crazy idea but at Wild Honey, they really do serve your first meal of the day all day long!

Wild Honey, located on the 3rd floor of Mandarin Gallery accepts no reservation. Queuing up for a seat or table can be an arduous affair. My friend and I did wait for 15 minutes before getting a table. After you got your seat, you need to walk to the counter to make your order and pay on the spot. After which, your food will be delivered to you. The menu is all written on the blackboard and they do have an interesting array of breakfast.

You can probably find breakfast like:
  1. Swiss - (V) stone fruit, bircher muesli
  2. Gallic - (V) scrambled eggs the french way, toasted brioche
  3. European - eggs Benedict with field mushrooms & prosciutto
  4. Californian - (V) scrambled eggs, tofu, herbs, peppers on ciabatta
  5. Tunisian - Sizzling pan of tomato stew, fried eggs & chorizo sausage
There are lots more in the menu and they have a good mix of breakfast for vegans and carnivores like me!

I ordered an European breakfast which is eggs Benedict served with mushrooms and prosciutto ham with hollandaise sauce served on handmade toasted brioche. The presentation looks absolutely beautiful and the egg yolks were oozing when I poked it with the knife. However the toasted brioche is too thick for my liking and a little too tough. I think I would have love it if it's served on a crispy toasted baguette. But I think to see such a lovely poached egg is enough to cheer up my day! Can't help but to take a picture of the lovely flowing egg yolk.

N ordered a Belgium breakfast which consists of light textured and fluffy waffles sandwiched with grilled mangoes. The waffles are indeed fluffy and tasty after dipping it with a little honey. The grilled mangoes is something new to me and it goes very well with the whole waffle dish. But I still don't get used to eating waffles for breakfast as I prefer something savoury in the morning.

My cappuccino is pretty. It comes with a nice frothed cream and cocoa powder. I'm not a coffee person but I can tell that it's smooth and nice even without sugar. This is a cosy place for a nice warm breakfast anytime. It's like your typical cafe in Paris, small, tight and smelled of coffee. However, the service over there needs a little improvement. When N ordered an extra Long Black, it never came.

It's not cheap I warn you. The breakfast are priced at S$18/dish and a drink is at almost $8/9. For the two of us, the bill came up to almost S$60. I think for that price, you can get a nice yum cha meal at any Crystal Jade Palace!

Nice! Amazing breakfast with great presentation. I don't eat breakfast usually coz I don't wake up in time during weekends and I'm always in a rush during weekdays.
I love the eggs Benedict. :)

Terrific work! This is the type of information that should be shared around the web. Shame on the search engines for not positioning this post higher!

everything is good good good, either good or very good!! but the worst thing is that this place runs very hip and busy, you might expect a waiting time for almost 40mins in the morning 9ish AM in the weekend! so ask your friend to tag the table before you reach there. keep your fingers crossed.

tips: order everything in the menu with the word 'HONEY'!!

Nanang: you're so funny!
