I'm not really a breakfast person. Most of the time I rather sleep right past it. But just sometimes when you feel like having something different to start off the day, a great breakfast is the perfect way to do it!
Actually there are plenty of breakfast or brunch places I want to visit. But unfortunately, most of the locations are pretty "ulu pandan" that I'm just too lazy to travel. Luckily for me, Swensen's joints were promoting their breakfast sets, so I popped by their suntec outlet on one saturday morning!
All of their sets came with a choice of juices (apple/orange) and Gloria Jeans coffee/tea. Pretty worth it if you ask me, where most places allowed you to choose only one drink.
All American Set ($10.90), Pancakes Set ($8.90)
The ASS had thick toasts, choice of eggs, ham slices, bratwurst sausage, grilled tomato, hash brown and creamy mushrooms. There were so many items that I was rather lost on what to start first! The toast was a familiar sight from Hong Kong cafes, eaten with honey and butter, while I particularly liked the smooth buttery taste of chopped mushrooms.
My girlfriend chose cheese for her pancake and was expecting creamy cheese fillings in the pancake. Alas, she was already halfway through and found nothing, only to realise they added a single slice of cheese at the bottom to be pan-fried with the pancake. Not very good as the cheese had already hardened and was slightly burnt. That aside, the pancake itsef was rather nice with a soft and fluffy texture.
Bill for two was $23.30 after taxes. More upmarket than your usual kopi/teh with half-boiled eggs and frankly, the quality wasn't outstanding. What did matter was that the overall package felt rather good with a laid-back environment, generous portions and perking up your day on a pleasent note!
