A few months ago, hubby and I had our date night on a place I long have wanted to try. Wild Honey is an all-breakfast restaurant located at Mandarin Gallery. Wild Honey features breakfasts from around the world, not just the regular pancakes & waffles. I have never been inside Mandarin Gallery so it’s my first time entering the mall when we visited Wild Honey.
Wild Honey is tucked in one corner of the mall. It is a spacious restaurant with dim lighting and electic decor with a classy but hip vibe that caters to a more ‘atas’ (Singlish for “high class) demographic. I love the dark hard wood furnitures, embroidered chair linings, beige lamp shades and the mismatched chairs.
Janro got the Parisienne Breakfast ($24.00).
It is a stuffed savory french toast with signature brioche, leg ham, gruyere cheese, Dijon mustard with fried egg & Hollandaise sauce with salad & tomatoes. It is an adequately portion meal but though hubby hoped for a bigger portions of leg ham on his toast.
I ordered the Norwegian Breakfast ($27.00).
It is a delightful-looking meal and is beautifully-plated. It has the two ingredients, salmon & avocado, that are helpful in increasing my breastmilk supply which why I ordered this. It is also th commonly ordered dish in Burpple. On top of the wholewheat brioches are avocado slices, grilled asparagus spears, poached eggs wrapped in Norwegian smoked salmon with Hollandaise sauce & salmon pearls. I am pretty happy with my order. I love the fresh salmon and the salmon pearls. I love it when I cut through my poached eggs and the yolk dripped into the bread. Delish!
We ordered the Red Velvet Cake ($12.00) for dessert. It is quite different from most velvet cakes I’ve tasted. It is not overly-sweet and it is layered with homemade jam & mascarpone.
Hubby got a Mandarin Wilderness Drink ($10.00) recommended by the waitress. It is an ice-blended raspberry, banana, mandarin orange and honey. It can easily mistaken as a dessert rather than a drink. It is a very thick smoothie drink. I find the drink too girly for my hubby and I, too, find it too sweet for my usual sweet tooth.
Overall, I love my dining experience in Wild Honey. I love the ambiance of the place and it is not to discover different breakfast style all around the world without leaving Singapore. I just find the prices a bit to steep though for a regular go-to brunch place. Nevertheless, it is a great date night restaurant and a good all-girls chat date place too.
Oh why hubby and I tries (emphasis on the trying) to have monthly date nights? Here are a few reasons below. Let me know if you have any to add.
1. Friendships is a good foundation for marriage.
Friends hang out. Friends make time to spend time together. Married couples need to be friends to survive the challenges of married life. It can’t all be lovey-dovey stuff nor it’s all pure business like let’s-create-a-family-this-is-our-stategic-planning. Friendship is one of the key ingredient to a strong marriage. So having date nights give you both a venue to be more like friends rather than business partners in your marriage.
2. Married couples need to talk to each other.
Married couples would argue with #2 but we talk everyday! When I mean talk, it doesn’t mean talking about the housing budget, the plans for the kids or what’s for dinner. It means talk about each other – just about two of you. Both of you evolve through the years, you’ll be surprised one day you wake up that you are sleeping with a stranger.
3. You need to love each other’s company.
You have no choice – you married each other, so you are stucked with each other’s company- for life. So you better enjoy the company each one offers. Just imagine once your kids go off to college or have their own lives, it will only be your spouse and you. So better practice being with your twosome now so you won’t feel awkward being alone with your spouse. I know this might sound weird but there are a lot of elderly spouses who feel awkward being alone with their spouses once their kids are living away from home.
4. You need a break from the kids.
I said it. We love our kids. But sometimes we need a bit of break from the chaos, the crying, the dirty diapers and the constant interruptions from anything you are doing. Having a bit of break and sometime to change from our drool-covered shirt to something nice & pretty can do a lot of good. It will make you snap on your kids less and give your patience a recharge. Plus once you get home from a nice dinner out, your love tank is so full and you miss them so much, you can’t help shower them with so much love & kisses. Date nights make you both better parents.
5. You need to bring back the romance in the marriage.
Longevity of marriage requires couples to fall in love with each other again and again. Life can give your marriages a serious beating with all the obstacles in hurls on your way. So if you want your marriage to last longer, go back to the time when you are still in your courtship stage. Return back the romance that will uplift your marriage. Romance are just not for star-crossed young teenagers who doesn’t know any better but for ageing boring married couples too.
