Dinner at Wild Honey Restaurant @ Mandarin Gallery [Revisit]

333A Orchard Road #03-01 / 02 Mandarin Gallery, Singapore 238897
Tel: 6235 3900

Good places are worth visiting, and re-visiting repeatedly, and Wild Honey Singapore is one such restaurant for me. Adopting the "breakfast is the most important meal of the day"  philosophy, Wild Honey serves up a wide range of breakfast items all day long, whether you want a Mediterranean-style breakfast, typical English breakfast, exotic Scandinavian breakfast etc- they have it all covered. You can also check out my review on past visits here and here.

When my friend mentioned she felt like a good salmon and rosti, Wild Honey came to mind immediately, and that was how 4 of us ended up holding our gathering dinner at Wild Honey @ Mandarin Gallery. The place underwent a revamp recently, so decor has changed a bit, with a long bar counter etc. Their food items on the menu have also been extended by a long list, but 4 of us skipped right through the nitty-gritty details to focus on signature brunches here.

The Norwegian Breakfast (SGD$28.00) blew our minds with its fresh, springy smoked salmon coiled around Hollandaise sauce and salmon pearls, sitting atop sweet, grilled asparagus spears, poached eggs, avocado and crispy wholewheat brioche.

Next, the Portobello Road Breakfast (SGD$24.00), bringing us back to earth with aromatic mushrooms, poached eggs, wilted spinach, onion and bell peppers confit, Hollandaise sauce, cushioned by crispy wholewheat brioche. Definitely a burst of flavours with this one!

Following that, we tried the Greek Breakfast (SGD$24.00), an exotic creation of open-face Omelette baked with fragrant lamb moussaka, bechamel, Keflograviera cheese, shaved red onion, fried Japanese eggplant & parsley; grilled flat bread was served on the side. Hearty and rich, this one transported us to places with azure blue skies, pristine white houses and sparkling turqoise seas.

Finally, my something I must have here - Scandinavian Breakfast (SGD$33.00) - succulent slab of fresh salmon grilled beautifully, nestling upon a bed of sweet asparagus spears and crackling potato rosti. I am glad that the quality standard of this dish has remained consistent over the years.

Washed my delectable meal down with a glass of Red Wine, of course. Looking forward to returning to Wild Honey for awesome food again.

Lunch at Morganfield's @ Suntec City [Revisit]

3 Temasek Boulevard #01-645 / 646 Suntec City, Singapore 038986
Tel: 6376 1136

Time to revisit Morganfield's (review here), this time for lunch. Service was good and restaurant was spacious in the daytime; not crowed. To enjoy a value for money meal, one could top up SGD$2.90 to their mains for the set, comprising a Soup and Tea  / Coffee.

The Rib-Eye Steak (SGD$36.90) was a precious 300 grams of char-grilled beef, meltingly tender and tasty, with nice Smokey hints. The steak was served with Merlot garlic butter, garden vegetables and baked potato. It was one of the best steaks I've eaten so far, comparing apple-to-apple range of diners.

We also shared the Baby Back Ribs (SGD$27.90 for half slab) with Hickory BBQ sauce. The flesh was succulent and fell off the racks beautifully. Paired with the sweet, smokey sauce, it made for a pretty tantalizing dish.

Overall dining experience here at Morganfield's was lovely; was glad that I revisited.  My client loved it too.

The Mommyhood Journey [viii] - Baby Gifts by TinyBabies SG [Sponsored]

Tiny Babies SG
Tel: +65 90627441

Tiny Babies SG is an online baby essentials boutique with a good range of reasonably-ranged, quality products suitable for newborn babies. This helps in saving time for parents without the hassle of physically hunting down malls to look for the perfect baby clothes.

As the name "Tiny Babies" imply, this brand was inspired by premie and tiny babies who may be born prematurely - flustered parents of these babies usually find it really challenging to find clothes for them. Tiny Babies SG aim to fill that gap, providing clothing ranging from tiny sizes to normal newborn sizes.

Tiny Babies SG is not only suitable for parents buying clothes and towels for their own children - they are also a great source for personalised baby gifts (think newborn gift, full month or baby christening).

Look at this set right here (worth SGD$178.00) - an extremely stunning Princessy set for my baby, complete with her name on it, and useful items such as romper, beret, socks, shoes and towel.

And how about this darling set (worth SGD$118.00) with the adorable fluffy bunny and towel. You can see that the gift is customised with my baby girl's name as well.

I have previously ordered a baby hamper for my friend as well- the experience was impeccable. Tiny Babies SG was able to do Chinese characters for my friend's baby's name, and they delivered the hamper within 2 days! Learning that the last character of baby's name ("Xiong") resembled "bear" in Chinese, Tiny Babies SG even cute-ify the hamper with bear designs to match.

Besides baby apparel, towels, shoes and plush toys, Tiny Babies SG also offers customised flash cards, books and craft sets. It's a lovely one-stop online shopping haven for baby stuff.

Personally, I really love this idea by thoughtful founder Zlata and her hubby Rege. Thank you for making shopping such a beautiful experience,  sourcing for these quality items for babies, and personalizing them.
