Breakfast. How many times have you heard me ranting on the most important meal of the day? With the breakfast craze still going around like wildfire, I guess many people would not stop hunting for their favourite breakfast place in town, not at least for me.
Hatched has been opened since October last year with its all-day breakfast concept, which is similar to Wild Honey at Mandarin Gallery. Located at Evans Lodge, it may not be the most convenient place for breakfast or brunch, but the nice relaxing environment is perhaps one of the reasons which drew many to this restaurant. Brunch this time was with Daniel and girlfriend, where we enjoyed a lovey weekday brunch
The cute utensil is the first thing that attracts our attention. Well, I guess Hatched really prides themselves in their egg creations.
I love eggs and I couldn’t help but to order Philly ($12) – omelette stuffed with strips of steak, onions, peppers, tomatoes and topped with cream cheese, served with a slice of toast.
The steak is tender and moist which really surprised me. However, the omelette was slightly bland and I have to season it with a bit of salt. The portion is quite filling considering the size of the omelette. I’m glad I also added on Chicken Chipolata Sausage ($4) as the side too. The juicy sausages are really scrumptious!
Crispy waffle ($12) with soft moist centre, drizzle with maple syrup or have it savoury! Add on $4 more and enjoy the waffle with black forest ham and sunny side up. Nice smoky flavour of the black forest ham is delicious. And with the mouth-watering sunny side up, dip the waffle into the runny yolk or eat it whole! However, I can only watch in envy as Daniel’s girlfriend savour in delight.
Who loves fluffy pancakes? Me me!
And here’s a Pancake Party!
Three thick fluffy pancakes ($10) are so good. The portion is humongous, just like the one I had at Wild Honey. However, I say the pancakes taste much better here! The caramelised apple, cream and maple syrup go so well with the pancakes. Now I really regret not ordering the sweet breakfast items! Lucky me, pancakes portion are way too much even for a guy like Daniel. He generously offered me a second serving. I couldn’t resist the temptation of course and…more pancakes for me! :D
The pancakes come in duo portion ($8) as well. If you think you can finish three thick pancakes, go ahead and enjoy it! Daniel also had the Wilted Spinach ($2) as the side but it was way too salty.
We are fortunate that there isn’t much crowd on weekday afternoon. Service is really pleasant and our food was served pretty fast. The price is much affordable than Wild Honey with no GST and service charge. However, Hatched’s egg creations didn’t quite impress me though. It was the pancakes and waffle which blew my socks off. Ironic isn’t it? If I were to return, I would probably go for the sweet breakfast items. Do check out their blackboard for the desserts too.:)
