Hi from Batu Pahat! Loving the traditional kaya toast/bread breakfast. The kaya here is more towards the brown coconut-heavy style while Singapore seems to prefer the green pandan-heavy style. The kaya was sweeter than usual, since they added some gula melaka, with generous silvers of tiny chewy dessicated coconut. Together with the freshly toasted bun and hot kopi-c, my breakfast was awesome.
I’ve been missing in action for a little while, and I do apologize as I’ve been adapting to a new role in my company, that’s been keeping me busy!
A really short one this time round, to kickstart coming back, and also Wild Honey has been blogged to death. While I agree Wild Honey deserves their popularity with consistently good food, generous portions and a hell of a pretty set up, there are many many other great brunch options and with pretty decors, like Antoinette for example.
English Breakfast, $24, a heaping plate of the usual suspects with toasted brioche, spicy homemade baked beans and fried potatoes. Toast was a little over-toasted but everything else was good. I highly recommend sharing this, the portion can easily be spilt between 2 girls.
European – Eggs Benedict, $18. Could do with a little more hollandise but similar to the other dish, everything was great.
The first thing you will notice about this cafe is probably the queue.
Located in the basement of Siam Paragon, tucked away in a corner beside the gourmet market, the queue took up almost the whole walkway. The first time I saw this cafe in the evening, typical Singaporean mentality drew me over to check out the menu. It’s mostly a dessert cafe serving cakes and cookies, with many people ordering their thick toast with ice cream. We didn’t intend to brave the queue but was around the area again next morning and decided to drop in for brunch.
