 Interior 

 Food menu
 Dessert and drinks menu

 Mellow Melon - $9
(Honey dew melon, Granny Smith Apple and Citrus Juice)

Other than the fact that it was waaaaaaaay overpriced, I felt that it was a great thirst-quencher! 

 Vegetapple - $9
(Beetroot, Carrot and Granny Smith apple)

This tasted exactly like the ABC juice you can purchase from fruit juice stalls.

 The Norwegian - $26
(Avocardo, grilled asparagus spears, two perfectly poached eggs wrapped with Norwegian smoked salmon, homemade Hollandaise sauce and salmon pearls on wholewheat brioche)

Well, my expectations for the breakfast at Wild Honey were sky-high because one simply does not pay $26 for a plate of eggs benedict. Even the fact that there were Ikura in the dish did not justify for the hefty amount we had to pay. So yeap, when I saw the words "perfectly poached eggs" on the menu, I expected my egg yolk to drizzle over the perfectly toasted brioche with I sliced into it but yet, I was disappointed. My eggs were slightly overcooked, and the rest of the dish was just ordinary.

 English - $25
(The foil works, scrambled eggs, canadian back bacon, cuberlad pork sausages, sauteed mushrooms, Dad's baked beans, breakfast potatoes, grilled cine ripened tomato and signature brioche)

The dish took a turn and in a good way. The scrambled eggs were smooth and creamy. The back bacon was tender and the pork sausage was seasoned well. The brioche was probably one of the best I've had, and even the baked beans were superb. Thumbs up to the breakfast potatoes too! Loved how crispy it was!

 European - $20
(Wild honey's version of eggs benedict with two perfectly poached eggs, sauteed mushroom, imported Italian prosciutto, homemade hollandaise sauce on the signature brioche)

The eggs were poached perfectly in this one. The prosciutto added a good balance to the entire dish and as usual, the brioche was crispy, yet fluffy on the inside. But $20 for this? Nope. 

 Caribbean - $20
(Coconut waffles bound with fresh passion fruit cream, fresh baby bananas and slices of mangoes, toasted coconut flakes and passion fruit syrup)

The waffles were fluffy and moist. This was actually my favorite dish out of the lot, other than the big breakfast of course. I could taste coconut in the waffle batter, and the passion fruit syrup complemented the waffles and the fresh fruits perfectly.


Atmosphere:
The interior was cool and very cosy. Sofa seats were available and there was even a semi-outdoor seating which overlooked a great view. This place is perfect for a lazy Sunday afternoon or an avenue to unwind with a group of friends.

Service:
I wasn't exactly impressed with the manager's attitude (So rude omg). Other than that, food was served promptly and the service staff was rather approachable.

Hope this helped!
Toodles!

Cooking Class at ToTT Store

Thanks to ToTT Store and Food News PR, I was invited to a cooking session along with Claudia! It was the first time we were cooking (like legitly cooking). I mean, if you disclude my pasta cooking and failed baking attempts at home, I have ZERO experience in cooking. Or rather, WE have zero experiences in cooking. We were excited to attend this cooking class, but also really petrified of screwing up. :/

But thanks to the people there, cooking was made so much easier!! Hahaha we bravely stood right in front of the class, struggled a little through the session but made it out alive with our tummies filled! Gotta thank our tablemates for helping us out as well! :)

ToTT provides a variety of cooking classes and different price ranges depending on the cuisine you're learning to cook! You can visit this site for more information:

They also provide cooking lessons for team bonding sessions! As well as private parties or studio rental. More information can also be found on this site:



 First dish! They prepared the receipe as well as ingredients for us so the cooking was made (really) easy!






Second dish!









Hahaha This is impressive for someone who hasn't cooked before ok. I dare to say that we did a splendid job here. (Also a huge thank you to Elaine and Joween who saved our asses hahahaha)

FYI, ToTT Store sells countless of cooking and baking utensils too! They've over 11,000 kitchen selections and I was in awe when I stepped into the store. It's a pity that I don't know how to / will never use those gadgets though! Do pop by and take a look, and don't forget to head over to their ToTT Bistro to grab a bite while you're at it! They've tons of specialty dishes such as Chicken Cottage Pie, Surf N Turf with Truffle Mash and so much more!

Like how can the food at a culinary institute ever go wrong?
