Wild Honey (Mandarin Gallery)

ED: If there’s one thing that’s essential for breakfast it’s got to be eggs. In fact life wouldn’t exist without eggs and hence breakfast wouldn’t be breakfast without eggs. You get what I mean. One egg dish I would wanna eat everyday if i was stranded on lost island would be Eggs Benedict and at Wild Honey, they’ve got a PHD in Eggs Benedict. Wild Honey are also famous for their round the world breakfast dishes which you could select from on their iPad menus. But I just had to find out for myself how good their Eggs Benedict are after reading and hearing so much about Wild Honey’s Eggs Benedict. The Perfect poached eggs layed on nest made of parma ham, sauteed mushrooms and thick sliced buttery brioche, gratined with a blanket of home made hollandaise sauce. It was love at first bite. Liquid gold oozed from the poached egg as I sliced through it. Got some eggs on my fork, a sauteed shitake, a slice of parma ham and buttery home made brioche and jammed everything into my mouth. What I got there was an explosion of flavours that hit all the right notes which created an orchestra in my mouth. The mushrooms were juicy and seasoned well and just the right amount of garlic and thyme was used. The brioche was soft and buttery and had a hint of sweetness to it. Their home made hollandaise had a smooth consistency and wasn’t too buttery as they balanced and freshened it with lemon juice. That’s how you get a distinction in Eggs Benedict right there on that plate. “Eggcilent”.

European – Wild Honey’s version of Eggs Benedict. Two perfectly poached eggs, sauteed mushrooms and prosciutto on toasted homemade brioche and hollandaise sauce

English – The classic full breakfast; creamy scrambled eggs, pork sausage, sauteed mushrooms, dad’s baked beans, bacon and vine ripened tomato with toasted brioche

Look at the picture above of their english breakfast, what more could you ask for? A cold glass of milk please. That’s a breakfast fit for a king. Or a queen in this case as that was my partner’s choice (: The focus of the dish is the scrambled eggs, which happened to be unfortunately, utterly disappointing. The first bite contained a nob of butter in it and my gf also agreed subsequent mouths were also overly buttery here and there and it was also too milky. To disappoint further I could even use a knife to cut through the scrambled eggs. Nuff said. I know where they serve the BEST SCRAMBLED EGGS IN THE WORLD. But It would cost you more than a thousand bucks to get them. The best scrambled eggs in the world are at Sydney’s Bills cafe. Second best are at my restaurant. (Opening in a few years time ha :p) Luckily the mushrooms brought salvation to the dish, just like those served for the Eggs Benedict were scrumptious. Their baked beans were quite nice and interesting as it was homemade, with shredded pork and was a little spicy. The bacon was a little over done and tough but oh well anything that has the taste of bacon, is awesome. The pork sausage was nice. To conclude, the scrambled eggs failed to do justice to the dish.

Hazelnut Latte

Nice sweetness but the coffee tasted kinda like Starbucks, which i find isn’t great at all. Sigh I really miss the awesome coffee at Campos Coffee Sydney.

Overall despite being pricey, Wild Honey is a pretty good place to satisfy your brunch cravings, do try out their Eggs Benedict, and check out their other delectable breakfast dishes from around the world!
