When I had more breathing space during the holidays, brunch was always a lovely option when waking up and feeling hungry on late mornings. And there's no one better than Ms Bella V to consult for brunch ideas! So we fixed a date to meet up and went off exploring Hatched!
Located at Evans Lodge, Hatched is really one place that I wouldn't particularly think of visiting when not driving, with a fair bit of walking distance from Bukit Timah Road (Don't even think of coming in from the Botanics Garden end). Decor was pretty minimal with wooden furnishings and a giant blackboard on the wall, while the cute concept of chicken and eggs could be prominently found in their kitchenware.
Philly Omelette with Chicken Chipolata Sausage ($16), Where's Waffle with Sunny-side Up and Black Forest Ham ($16)
Served with a block of cream cheese, Bella V was loving the juicy sausages and tender beef steak within the omelette. Girlfriend's waffle order was also nicely done with a slight crispy coating, paired with tasty ham and a runny egg yolk. Good stuffs!
Pancake Party ($10), Wilted Spinach ($2)
Now trio's a party! I was feeling hungry and decided to upgrade from the Duo Pancakes ($8), only to be in for a pleasant surprise for three thick and fluffy pancakes! Served with caramelised apple cubes, cream and maple syrup, this was a real delicious sweet treat! Can be paired with blueberries or strawberries too.
The side dish was a real letdown though, overcooked with way too much salt. Go easy with the pinch eh chef?
Bill for three was $44 with no GST and taxes, additional 10% discount for NUS students (boss was kind enough to extend the offer to NTU students!). Hatched is really wallet-friendly when compared to other all-day-breakfast places, though its location can be a turn off on overly sunny or rainy days (sadly, that's most of the time). But when the pancake crave strikes, I might just brave the walk in!
